As The Scripting Games Wrap Up…

We’ve still got, oh, about 48 hours or so for Event 6 submissions, and then of course voting and judging. But I wanted to take a second and let you know what this year’s Games looked like:

We’ve logged over 1,100 entries. Almost 13,000 votes. More than 6,700 comments. That’s a lot – and it’ll all be archived once the final votes are tallied and prizes awarded. There will be ZIP files of entries for each track and event, and I encourage you to download them over the Summer – we won’t necessarily archive them permanently.

We’ve seen an enormous range of techniques and approaches, and generated hundreds of learning notes across more than a dozen active expert commentators. We’ve awarded – with some yet to be handed out – thousands of dollars worth of prizes.

This is also a good time to start collecting general feedback on the Games, so feel free to drop into our official post-mortem thread and offer your feedback. Read the introductory post in that thread before you post, please. I’m asking for a specific feedback format at this time, although you’re always welcome to open your own thread if you have something specific or off-format you want to offer. I ask only that you keep things constructive and professional.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Games. We’re formulating our next event, so stay tuned.

    It looks like the thread is locked or something. In either Chrome or Firefox I’m not able to enter any text in the post mortem section to comment.
