[quote="Rich":1itdwl55]Sounds good, and will probably be done, but these competitions are for people who don't have much time and just want to create something quickly; surprisingly a lot of good concepts come from things like this too, so we may see some games evolve out of the results.[/quote:1itdwl55]

And ideas and concepts should be weigh a bit more heavier than a finished product, that perhaps offers nothing new, for example: mario bros 1 replicate, with mario in a yellow suit.

the point of one hour compos are to see what ppl can make in a single hour, its fun, thats the point.
we could have a one week thread, but that would be apart from this.

the point here is to see what ppl can do in a very limited amount of time under constraints, it creates alot of cool and funny stuff.

Certainly, I don't think anyone meant that the one thing would rule the other out - 1 hour competitions are great, but it'd also be cool to have stuff where users have a bit more time to not just see what they can do with their current skills, but where they're forced to put some thoughts into design and see what they could come up with if they'd have a couple of days.

Competitions in general could be very fruitful. Depending on whatever task is given, a realistic timeline could be set.

Only having 1 hour competitions would suck and only having 3 day competitions would suck as well, so let's make a salad. And put some dressing on, is what I'm saying!

I think we would get more participants if we had a schedule people can check and plan ahead for. It won't have to give the theme away and it could be something like: [quote:38egp3he]Tuesday 18th of August: 10 minute theme check at 9:50 GMT, competition starts at 10:00 GMT. Submissions accepted no later than 11:10 GMT[/quote:38egp3he] It would be much more structured.

Yes, I would really like to see an organized competition. Maybe even with the date/time posted on scirra.com main page or on Construct Corner. A lot more structure.. and maybe prizes. :wink:
