Yearly top 3 or top 5 submissions?

Let the developers know what you think of the software and what can be done to either improve the CFDG language or the Context Free program.

Yearly top 3 or top 5 submissions?

Post by shevy »

This is mostly for MtnViewJohn but perhaps for others.

I have discovered cfdg many years ago - it's awesome (actually way before my current
account here, which I created in 2014; I think I knew cfdg since ... 2007 or something
like that).

Personally I am too dumb to ever fully understand it (yep sorry, my brain isn't able to
grok it fully), but I just love the generated art.

Recently I watchted the gallery again.

Like nightbeard feather:

I like that.

And many others.

Would it be useful to make something like a yearly vote for the best
CFDG submission for the given year? Where people could vote,
and the e. g. top three cfdg could be awarded. It would be no
monetary reward, just one of fame and reputation and praise.

Not sure if it is worth to add code for that, but I wanted to suggest
it and perhaps there is an overwhelming army of people who'd like

An advantage for this could be that people could quickly look at
the "all time top three per year" and get inspired by epic cfdgs.

There are many epic cfdgs but some are definitely better than
others, and I think many of us may be interested in the most epic
CFDGs too.

I like the idea.

There is already a section for the most popular designs: ... ves&num=25

Maybe an option to filter that list by the year of submission could do the job?

The 'random selection' from the gallery has done a good job of highlighting some buried treasure in the gallery.

Don't be afraid to post to the gallery even with very simple designs.

My first design was just a few triangles but it was enough to give me an appreciation for how fun it can be :D

I added a filter-by-year for the popular designs page. I think this would show pretty much the same result as an annual vote without having to worry about low voter turnout.
