If you can convince Maro it doubles, I think you'd be fine.

Taking a look at the terms and conditions, while we'd all appreciate any and all help from non-US NGA-ers, it looks like that's not kosher:
Quote:
Confidentiality. You agree that until the deadline for completion of a particular Trial or Challenge (both a "Round") has passed you will not discuss that Round, including without limitation discussing any assignment or test with anyone.

nobody needs to know
I can't enter this thing so I need to design through you guys by proxy

also taking feedback is a valuable design skill etc etc wink wink

I'm entering for fun as well. It's not very likely that I'll end up actually quitting my job and moving across the country if I win. But then again I don't think the odds of me winning are particularly great in the first place.

it's weird that I'm now at a point in my life where this isn't even appealing anymore. like, I would've loved this when I was younger, and I'd love to compete in it just to know, but I wouldn't want to, like, win. I'm too invested in my current work to consider giving it up and moving to Renton to work a completely unrelated full-time job.

good luck to anyone who does apply, though: I'm rooting for y'all.

Thirded.

You're horrible and they totally should teach kids musical notation before anything else in music class.

Even though I have never made top 8 of PTYMtC, I'm sure I could do ok in this if I didn't live in Australia. Maybe by GDS 9 they will allow telecommuters or something

Oh Wizards....never change. (But no, really, please get the tech side of your company in order.)

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! PLEASE READ!

If you submitted an entry for the Great Designer Search 3 prior to 11:30 AM PT on 12/5/2017, an internal error prevented your entry from being correctly recorded. This issue has since been corrected. Please resubmit your entry to ensure we receive it!

(I don’t want all of you talented folks to miss out on your chance!)

“Technside of your company” you mean the three starved programers they occasionally throw some sandwiches and keep as far from getting Gatherer comments active again as possible? Haha, the lack of a decent tech side in a modern, big company is actually a little distressing.

Pfft...they probably pay IBM. Which means they are getting what they paid for.

I mean... I really don't get the impression that Wizards of the Coast is a well-run or enjoyable company to work for.

I know this is just one of your Silly jests, but others may get the wrong idea; they'll wonder why you would go to such lengths to embarrass yourself in public with such ramblings.
