After getting six handsome new games for MSXdev'13, now is the turn of the users to vote for their favorite games. The MSXdev'13 voting is public and each user can vote for three games, 3 points for the best one (in his/her opinion), 2 points for the second best one and 1 point for third best one.

The poll is open until June 30th, 2013 - so there are only a couple of days left to vote. The only requirement is to be registered at the Karoshi MSX Community. Vote for your favorite game so they can earn the grand prize of 333 euro!

Why does this MSX Dev competition and poll go through a forum??
I do not understand... (!?) Why not make it more easy accesible?
And why is it in Spanish language? Why not in English? Question

I hate registering for forums that I don't visit (for example
because the MSX talk is mainly in Spanish...),
but I also hate the wrong MSX game wins the MSX Dev!! Hannibal

Registed about a week ago, still do not have a login to vote... Sad

I want to have a voice too! I want to vote!

User approved! And by the way, everything about the MSXdev is being handled in english, with pretty severe slapfesta when someone drops a line in spanish, so we are really trying our best!

Aren't there SMF mods available that allow a dropdown of languages on the registration page? Or a parameter you could pass along in the URL to switch the display language?

Oh, and sending my password in plain text via e-mail is insecure, even when it is upon registration. See the link for details.
It also makes me doubt the password is stored using one-way encryption.

well, it's not like your address, credit card data and/or other sensitive information is stored at Karoshi's... I haven't found the time to play around with the releases yet due to quite a hectic schedule, but the small stuff ray/fix mentioned sure won't keep me from casting a vote.

C'mon people - the developers of these 6 new MSX games would like to receive your support and appreciation, and one of the best ways to do that is by casting your votes (and/or commenting on their respective news posts).

Oh, it's not keeping me from voting, but in this day and age of exploits and leaked databases I do think that informing people about their insecure password practices is a necessary thing. Especially since a lot of people still use the same password for multiple services.

Especially when the forum software is already quite outdated (1.1.11 when 1.1.16 and 2.0.4 are already out)...

Hi viejo_archivero,

I think I've actually registered at Karoshi forums a few times now under the name "SkyeWelse", but I've always gotten the message that my account would need to be enabled by an Administrator and that was the end of it. If you could enable my account, I'd be happy to join the forum sometime and vote.

Thanks!

-Thomas

Hi SkyeWelse: if you've did it long ago, the user has been probably deleted... if you don't mind, please just register again, notify me and I'll activate the account asap. Thnx!
