Some ideas that can be interesting
« on: May 08, 2012, 10:51:51 AM »
Idk if you'll agree or not but when I make my own site time ago I made a section with all the highscores about  the most famous retrogames of all members. It can be a fun idea ad can bring more life to the site. I d be glad to collaborate if the thing's ok for you.

I had the idea to do something like this too I have just never got round to implementing it.

A high score club would be good.

It might be the sizes and number of them. This forum is limited to one image that can't be any bigger than the one I have.

Good idea in principle. Ultimately I guess this will work better as the site grows but nothing wrong with kicking it off now.

well yeah I would surely be one of the partecipants! If we really want to get serious about it we can make competitions based off certain titles with a proof of the high score that mus be sent on one of the admins email.... Idk these are all ideas but, you re in charge!

I like it mate.

Post what you need and how you see it working.

Ie any forums. What games and so on

We would need you to run it I would think.

I shall explain my project here.... I thought about it like this:

- competition: get the highest points, lower time (if on a racing game) or other depending on the game

- title of game choosen: (eg. Super mario Bros)

- expiration date (eg. "the competition ends in 1 month")

- partecipants list


NOTE: to post the score we should need a proof of it. It might sound annoying but here's the only way:

- take a photo of the screen with the high score with the date on the photo of the picture

- send it to an admin email account

- verify it

- post it

From my advice the competitions must be done NOT on emulators because we son t have control or proof to see who is cheating. We shall accept only pictures taken from a tv screen or ds, gb ecc. screens for security

This is what I thought:
  • Create a high score club sub-forum in Retro Games
  • People can post their own high scores and challenge people to beat them
  • From time to time we do prize games where the winner gets something cool!
  • Proof can given by just posting up a photo of your high score
  • If enough people participate we can have a game of the month or something like that and award point to the highest scores and create a league table.

I agree with you, we shall adjourn every week the first post of the competition so that everyone has a clear view of the high score list!
