After you account is activated i put you in the "Hall of Fame"-group (btw i did that with Paladin now). Then you have access to the hall of fame topic. There you can suggest new players for the hall, start debates and polls.

coolio, I can be part of the jury if you still want... Where do I report and what do I do?

p.s.: is flash absolutely necessary? Maybe there's some simple php alternative? I have oodles of experience hacking up phpBB forums.

I am currently searching alternatives but i didn't find a good one yet.

This is what ppl have to do to become jury members:

1. sign up at http://www.trongame.de
2. wait until your account is activated (we will make that faster soon)
3. tell me that you want to be part of the Jury group (i know already about you zoid, so it isn't necessary ;) )
4. I will add you to the "Hall Of Fame Jury"-Group. Only the groupmembers have access to the HOF subforum, there you can start new topics and suggest to honor people for their contribute to the community or whatever you like. Find some good reasons to convince the other jury members and start a poll.

for those who are interested: we updated the hof today, it is a bit better now (but bigger)

So I installed all the plugins it screamed for when I went to http://www.trongame.de/hof but all i got to see is the titlescreen, some text saying it's loading stuff, and then nothing else, because apparently it crashed firefox. When I go there with google chrome it says Shockwave for Director crashed and just shows me the link to the Mac Version.

it looks first as if it crashes, you only need to wait a few minutes.

2020, I added you and others to the Jury now, have fun :)

I've got it working.
For those who haven't/can't it is basically a 3d world with a simple map created by word you can walk around, much in the same way as a first person shooter, but with no guns. It was worth it to see the guy in the Z-Man suit :)
This world will (I assume) eventually be populated with trophies which have been awarded to certain people for their contribution to Armagetron over the years - please correct me if I'm wrong.

While the idea is interesting, the platform it runs on is evidently flawed.

How about the world being set in the game Nexuiz. "Nexuiz is a free open-source first person shooter that runs on Windows, Linux and OSX."
Word can build the map. Someone will host the Nexuiz server (if you go with this I may be able to help with server - how hard can it be?).
Once the votes have been counted and verified an award ceremony han be hosted at a particular time an all the arma players can then join the server for a night like no other....
When Z-man takes to the podium to collect his award for being the God of Arma we can all show our appreciation by shooting him :lol:

That aside, I'm not sure how "official" the awards will be. no offense but looking at the peopl on the jury most appear to be fairly new to the game in the grand scheme of things. I've been playing this game for around 5 years and watched delelopments for around 3 but when I look at the developers Tank is the only one I actually know - but I'm sure the others have contributed to Arma in some way or another along with many others at that time - are they forgotten?
Maybe some of the old school developers should have their say as to who may deserve a medal.
Maybe I'm wrong and you've thought of all this. If I am kick me.

However Official it may be, I'd really like to see a Nexiuz Award Ceremony :)

i will try to understand nexuiz. I didn't like to make a first person shooter in the hall of fame so i disabled this function (lasers and bullets are possible in biont3d).

We thought about an Award Ceremony done with video clips.
I confess I used the term "official" just because...ehh....it sounded great.
I'd really like the old school developers (yes, you too ;) ) to be awarded and (I already did something for you and the other sty inventors) I would like you all in the jury is well, but i don't know how to contact Groundpig, Wolverine, Supertard (one of my favourite cycle designers :) ) Mazuffer, Philippeqc and all the others.

Edit: ok i had a quick look at nexuiz tutorial and FAQ:

+
needs less loading time
compatible with linux

-
no hyperlinks
no animations/triggers/elevators or special features (AFAIK now )
ego-shooter can't be turned off
no animated 3d-models
i have no idea yet how to make the maps ( i found something about netradian but it looks difficult, maybe i find a way to convert my c4 files in a format that works with it)
custom music possible?

Each of these things can be done. *radiants are easier to learn than most 3d editors.

PS: also we don't shoot people's ego

PPS: oh, and darkplaces is quite slow an any machine that's not kick-ass
