    Now that we are well into the GOTM 3, when can we expect the results from GOTM 2?

    Not that I did that great, but I was curious.

    Cool!

    Is it possible to set up an automatic emailer for notification of posted GOTM results?

    Damn, I totally sucked at GotM2. Can't wait the results :p. One day (which may be soon, I think, not probably) I'll beat the AI at prince.

    I presume its possible... Might be better as an "opt-in" system. Whether or not it gets any traction would be determined by whether AlanH wants another challenge, though!

    I guess it would be possible. Rather than set up a whole mail list system, I'd prefer to work on the basis that you opt in to receive a notification for each game when you submit.

    But what's wrong with subscribing to the RRS feed from the GOTM news page? That will tell you whenever there's a news item. We don't publish a lot of other stuff there, but we *should* post there whenever there's a new game or a results release.

    Yeah sorry guys, I'm always full of ideas but am usually limited in actually helping to make them happen. I know your quite busy already.

    I agree that opt-in would be the way to go. But the RRS feed would be even better. I didn't think of that and will hook it up ASAP. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Since the weekend's over and no results posted yet, is there a new ETA?

    Draft results are completed - just got to sort out one or two issues. I have a Civ3 GOTM to release tonight, and once that's done, these results (and teh COTM 21 ones) are the top priorities.

    I was starting to guess that. You usually need 1 week to compile the results of a GOTM. Now, with 3 GOTMs per month (one civ3, one c3c, one civ4), that means 3 weeks per months to compile results giving you about one week to prepare those 3 GOTMs. You guys must be overloaded with work!! :eek:

    Anyway, keep the good work and take your time. :goodjob:

    ... maybe you should start recruiting new staff members to split the job!

    Yes. Please begin recruitment.
    I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I am very eager to see where I placed this time around.;)

    If you are looking for help, I'm available. 3 Degrees must be good for something...:cry:

    In my experience, the more helpers, the longer it takes. Recruit too many helpers, and you'll be waiting 3 months for results!

    Its not a resourcing issue - they will be published within 24 hours.

    Please bear with me - I promise that I will be better organised next month - I've just had a rather busy time of late.

    [First time poster...]

    I couldn't agree more. This site, these forums, and most importantaly the Civ IV GoTM's have made CivIV one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences I've been a part of in a long, long time.

    Thank you,

    Steve

    Add me to the list of people saying "Take all the time you need, and thanks much for running this game every month."

    Also, I don't play Civ3 any more, so feel free to stop running the Civ3 GOTM and COTM. ;)
