Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls; I'm sure many of you have wished to work with someone new, especially someone well known and respected, or maybe just someone who's gotten your attention and appreciation of their work. Perhaps you aren't well know but would like to meet and collaborate with some people, show what you got? Are you just looking for something a little different? While not all of these can be promised, it would be nice to be able to do some of these, yes? I give you, McBacon Jam.

The idea and goal of McBacon jam is to give people a chance (and excuse) to team up with people they wouldn't normally team up with an give them an idea of what its like to work with them. Hopefully, this encourages less cliques and more willingness to diversify collaborations.

Here are the basics:
  • This event will run from 1/21/2015 to 2/11/2015 (3 weeks because everyone been getting sick and McBacon loves you)
  • I will announce a theme on the 21st; that is when your team can officially begin.
  • Team sizes must be a minimum of 2 with a maximum of 4 (remember, this is about collaborations). Solo entries will not be accepted for this.
  • You may be in only 1 team.
  • You may submit some basic info about yourself so that others can get a better idea about you at a glance.
  • Just to set the record once and for all, there IS NO APPLICATON OR APPLICATION PROCESS. all info is provided voluntarily and for the benefit of others.
  • If you already have a team decided, be sure all members join said team.
  • If you dont have a team, but want to join one, make a team with just you in it. if someone joins your team, make sure everyone in said team talks about it too.
    If no one does join said team, I will be talking to everyone without a team and helping everyone get teamed up.
  • If you don't care one bit about who you're teamed up with, consider going into reserve. Being in reserve allows me to makes sure anyone that wants to be in a team can. plus, it grants you the best trophy in this event!
  • Assuming this is a success, don't expect to team up with the exact same people every time. Each new jam means different team arrangements!
  • If bizarre circumstances occur or if you're having some team issues, let me know and I will take care of things accordingly.

Only 1 badge will be handed out, depending on the circumstances:

McBacon Jam Effort: 10 MS
  • Given to people on a team who at least turns in something remotely playable and tries to meet the theme.

McBacon Jam Pioneer: 25 MS
  • Given to people on a team that end up making something and meets the theme quite well (I expect this one to be the one handed out mostly)

McBacon Jam Reserve: 30 MS
  • This award overrides the others and is given only to people who went the extra mile and put themselves in reserve, provided they still turn in something though.

Questions? Comments? Concerns? Speak up and post!

The only RMN event with enough bacon.
I am very excited for this. I can't wait until we can start!
It's cool to see this looking all official now.
I will enter the event if I am assigned to someone completely at random that I've not done before to work on something using RPG20XX. I think an event like this is best taken completely blind, however I would only do something like this for live fire testing of RPG20XX.

Given how I almost always work alone, there's only two people I can't be assigned to because I already know of them: darkfox and BurningTyger. It can be someone I know of and have spoken to a lot, just not attempted an event together.
Put me in the random reserves :3
I would like to join the reserves!

It should be noted I'm only good at VX Ace... I can't make graphics or music for shite D:

Edit - Actually I regret saying I can't participate in this event... My computer is a dying breed and can't sustain VX Ace as is. I need a factory reset to hopefully fix my computer problems.
Is Ziegfried made out of bacon?
I'm so looking forward this! I'm so excited, I can't calm down and watch some intolerant film of Griffith (and The greedy Greed too).
I have to go to Youtebe and put some Foxygen in my veins.
Gah I *really* want to join, but I'm afraid I might end up useless because of my crazy schedule (they even took my weekends from me. Heartless Bastards -.-;)

Since this is #1, there will be a #2 soon right? Right?
Got any Dexreth amulets?
Neat, it's up! Let's do this!

Zeigfried, one suggestion: It would perhaps be a good idea to have a list of those participants who are in reserve visible for everyone.

Yeessss! It's high-time for some Lloyd's Beacon Ford's Bacon!
can't join... Too much things to do in the schedule. :(
Whoo! I'm really excited about this. Looking forward to seeing what everyone does.

The red you've chosen (for user names and timestamps) is incredibly hard to read against the dark blues and almost blacks.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
That low-res jar logo is really bugging me.

What hasn't bugged you about this? XD
On a more serious note, I'll see what I can do about that.

I'll take a peek at the CSS later and see what I can manage.

Thank you liberty, and thanks to everyone else in reserve!

Its on the spreadsheet actually, but I'll probably have a list or a link to this list in the description.

I'm thinking a list of people that are not on teams, but have signed up in the other thread, might be in order.
Sweet Jesus am I excited for this. Looking forward to finding out what the theme is!
You're magical to me.
Me too! The 21st can't get here soon enough! :DDDD
