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 ( 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

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...
