The Pandora version of the entry must NOT be released to the public before the competition is over. You can release as many versions for other platforms as you like. It is also okay if there's an early Pandora version predating January 9th - but no further public releases should happen if you plan on entering.
what happens if there's a crashing bug ?
it might be crashing on some user's machines but not on the "selected beta tester(s)" machine(s) due to some magical interaction between installed package/lib
could we have a 1 week of public beta prior to the deadline and the voting ?
(or post-deadline but that'd basically extend the deadline by 1 week so I'd say 1 week prior)
You are welcome to post pictures and videos or share your project ideas with the community (and get suggestions and/or help from them). The judgement will be done by the community, so this is a good way to find out what they'd love to get
basically, this means we don't have to keep it secret ... so, 1 week of public community beta testing wouldn't hurt, would it ?
(hidden in a spoiler tag to not confuse anyone who'd skim through the thread)
or would that ruin some aspect of the compo ?
