Hi friends, i really like that moddb trailer and one scene is included from the Q3A-Mod World of Padman, that's great! If you want to vote for us, check our profile (http://www.moddb.com/games/world-of-padman). And there'll be an audio award? That's great! WoP has a lot of song from dieselkopf, a swedish industrial band. They made some tracks espacially for the mod, some very nice music. Green Sun, my band, recorded a hymn for WoP in the last couple of days but the song is hold back to promote the standalone later. Stay tuned and thx for the possabilities here on moddb.com.

LOL, I saw Stellar Conflicts logo in there. Too bad its dead because of lack of PROGRAMERS (Hint). I might have to make a trailer anyway. Hell if it wins something, maybe a programmer will come along.

Are you giving out one gaming rig to each winning team, or a gaming rig to each winning team member?!
Might sound like a stupid question but I feel that you didn't explain enough how prices will be dealt with. :P

Will there be parties anywhere? I'd like to go to a Moddb - Party and make it a really cool event. Here in Hamburg I could organize this easily, but it needs to be thought over. Wouldn't it be cool to make the mod-community more open to outsiders? Because whenever I tell one of my friends about modding games they are like: "wtf are you doing?" Most people don't have the slightest idea such a cool thing like modding exists.
And even though it will get harder (with the new engines) to keep up with commercial projects, the originality here will win everybody over, I think.

So thanks Moddb, think about making "happeningS" out of the award. The only problem I see is that a lot of people who mod are to young to go to the kind of party I'm talking about. But otherwise: MAKE IT BIG! Moddb grows all the time. We need a voice to speak to the outside world someday...
