It is kinda sad to see that drama going on here.
I vote an admin does the [/thread] thing. We know that:

I would have liked that diploma for my daughter because it would have impressed her


Just show her this thread instead. That should do the trick.

Received the certificate today ... and without any whining and drama.

As the Minbari would say: faith ... manages.

d0Dge: Funny, it arrived here too :)
Well, I wanna say that I was informed about the certificate and well... I didn't get it yet although I have replied with my snail mail address. It can wait as long as it has to so I'm not worried. :)

However... The biggest thing is that I did not expect anything more than a mention on a page at best, so the fact that I get a certificate and a neat badge to show for it on Pouet is more than I've expected. I was rather pleasantly surprised by that, but I couldn't have done it without ZanaGB's help :).

Anyways, I don't understand why Baudsurfer is being so bitter. I respect his work as I believe it's technically impressive, but his behavior displayed here is just rude and selfish, and at points even childish. I hope that he'll go do the right thing and amends his behavior, as it's not productive and won't lead to anything good.

Anyways, cheers to those who participated, no matter if they got an accolade for their work or didn't. No matter if you were just submitting your work, being the jury or being the management who ran these awards - You all contributed to the demoscene!

This year we got a lot more interesting demos (In my opinion at least) and now the awards are 100% confirmed official so this year's awards will surely be even hotter! :D

Were there tchotchkes?

Anyway, as above, I think things will get better if everyone just has patience and waits it out. Zen and the Art of Not Getting Incensed by Pouët Posts.

baudsurfer, what's your damn problem?

does this scene, the demoscene mean so fucking much to you?? ..
is it your damn life??? ..

i'd understand if this scene would be some business stuff, but it's all j4f..
why are you acting like some pathetic douche pissin on others work/group/life?

alot of peops already think the least of you, so why keep on going with this aditude?

it saddens me to see all this bullshit in a scene which is actually meant to be fun!

i ain't in no prod which got nominated .. and i don't give a fuck ..
there are enough people likin my shiet .. and that's what counts .. for me atleast :)

keep on codin .. u seem to be good at it .. the scene knows that ..
but drop that pathetic aditude ..

IIRC Smash didn't want to send in his work for some reason.

The Meteoriks team did say somewhere they also reviewed productions outside of those explicitly submitted but the people who created the prods they considered had final say and could refuse consent.
FairLight did get nominated in the oldschool demo :) and i got the certificate today :)

And one of the three demos Smash contributed to in 2014 *was* nominated, twice - it just happened to be the one that wasn't released under the Fairlight label. Nothing particularly mysterious there...

The point is we didn't submit anything because all those German awards, wether it be Meteoriks, Demoklubi or DUB, bear the same Eurovision vote syndrome in the first place. So I don't accept the half laugh at my expense on the big-screen when nobody wanted to take part of this joke in the first place.


Demoklubi is based on the vote of the people who are present at that time. We value good products and downvote (and even stop viewing shitty ones) the crappy ones. If that's not your liking, then too bad. the monthly Demoklubi goes in a way that each month we vote on the products of the month and in the end of the year we watch all the 12 products and vote on them. As far as your eurovision hinting goes, it sort of is true, as the demoscene is mostly a european phenomena at the moment.

Not that it is any of my business, please do humor us by elaborating on the subject a little further; you're not satisfied for not receiving the diploma for a nomination you did not want to have in the first place from people you do not know or want to know?

While I'm glad you're even aware of Demoklubi, I still think you're the same delusional Kozmik with his Traffic Hour style demos and NextEmpire business. No matter how often you delete your history from demozoo.
