nick-o-matic: -the obelisk is copied from a souvenier to me from my father
nick-o-matic: -the hieroglyphs in the middle of the level are copied from Papyrys of Ani, which is book of the dead written for a scribe named Ani
nick-o-matic: -the Egyptian theme was chosen because I wanted to make it no grass to get more vertexes for art, but due to time limitations I didn’t manage to use them all for art and so it got grass (Ramone’s idea)
nick-o-matic: -Ramone didn’t change the level at all, only helped with mask + grass
nick-o-matic: -the level was supposed to have water all the way down but it made me dizzy whle playing so I changed it
nick-o-matic: -my girlfriend helped a bit too, she invented the sunrays for the flower (Egyptians drew it like that), also the 2nd apple symbolizes sun, held by a holy scarab
nick-o-matic: perhaps it is now a good moment to announce that i am going to arrange a ff-cup in near future

People in the community give their favoured suggestions to who should be nominated in the different categories in the proper GAA thread on Mopolauta. To be able to vote in the third step, one must make suggestions in the thread. It is not compulsory to make suggestions in more than one category, but that is of course recommended.
The jury members will choose ten candidates to each category according to their experience and knowledge. They will be also reading the community's suggestions.
Now we have top10 for each category available and again the community can vote. The criteria for being allowed to vote are: well-known player (decided by the jury) and the player has posted some suggestions in the first step (so we see that he has been active during the whole process) or he doesn't have to be well-known if he posted a nice suggestion list with reasonable arguments. These limits are set for getting more appropriate votes. People don't have to vote in every category but if they do vote in some category they must pick their top5 and not just top1 or top3.
The jury will collect the top5 for each category according absolutely to the community votes. The point system will be as follows: 5 points to every first position, 4 points to every second position etc. This will be the top5 to be used in the final show.
The different jury members will vote over the different categories, and the community will also give 2 votes to the candidate who got most points in the third step, and 1 vote to the candidate who got the second-most points. The different jury members' votes will not be public. In the event of a tie, the candidate who got most points from community in the third step will win. If there still is a tie, the one who got most 5 points will win, then 4 points etc. If the winner cannot be resolved by this, the jury will come together and discuss the matter to declare a winner.
Voting for the Community Award:
Each voter will list up to 3 people, in ranked order from 1st to 3rd. Each 1st position will give 5 points, each 2nd position will give 3 points and each 3rd position will give 1 point. Voting in this category is not compulsory.
