Re:Challenge 22: Winterbells! - 2007/03/01 12:32 Okay, my descision on the Wii thing takes a few factors into account:


  1. If you are reading this post, and able reply, and able to play the flash games, then you must have a computer with a keyboard and mouse and some form of broad band. Frankly, until very recently I feel that is an entirely fair assumption. You, on the other hand, may not have a Wii, given how rare it is to find one in the stores these days.

    After further consideration yes, it is feasible that someone could own a Wii, and not a computer, and yet still has access to this site and its message board and the games we play. I also have to consider as portable devices get more and more powerful, it will become increasingly likely that someone may try to participate in the FGC from a device that is not a computer. You have to understand that this is a considerably recent thing that I have had to take into consideration.

  2. I do not write the rules of the FGC for the specific nine of us. In the event that people I encounter from my internet or day to day travels want to join in, I want them to be able to. So regardless of if WE all have Wii's future players may not.

  3. I will retract the control device comment. Fact is I just replaced my own keyboard mouse combo with one that has a laser mouse. In hindsight, that gives me an advantage against people who only have laptop touch pads. The Wii mote is about as far from what a mouse does than a touch pad. Point taken.

  4. The fact remains that I, as the person who is hosting this entire thing, does not have a digital camera, and as a Wii owner, is really bummed that you guys get to submit scores on the Wii and I can't. I can only imagine how much more bummed a hypothetical person who wants a Wii, has no access to one because they can't find one or afford one, but as the digital camera must be. Bummed = not fun, and the point here is to have fun.

    Now, if Steinst2 ends up being right in what he told me and they make a screen capture function available on the full version of the Wii Internet system, then maybe I can integrate the two systems.

    Honestly I have no problem with taking photos of your scores. Photos of your screen are far far more difficult to fake than screenshots. Problem is that's another piece of equipment you have that not everyone does.



I have decided I am going to extend this challenge another week due to spring break for the college guys. I also want to do it in order to give me more time to think about this. In the mean time, keep those submissions coming.
