Raks, the Ludum Dare is a 48 hour competition to make the best game you can in a short time. Literally hundreds (I think now it's up to thousands) of teams join in. It's one of the most popular, most intense, fastest, most regular competitions in indie video game development. Some Ludum Dare entries have gone on to become somewhat popular games too.

(I can't say that I know this 100%; I haven't joined in yet, but what I wrote should be mostly accurate)

As for the topic, I've been considering joining, especially since I had to pass on the Stencyl Jam that recently finished. Even if I do join, it'll likely be one of my 8-hour games instead, but some of those have been some of my best. Would be a fun livestream party (assuming anyone would come to watch :P)...
Don't look to me but rather to the One who is the reason for what I do. :)

If you need help, send me a PM. Even if I haven't been on in the forums in ages, I still receive those messages via email notifications. You can also reply to any of my forum posts, regardless of the age (especially if I created it), and I will likely reply.

If you want to see the programming behind certain types of games, feel free to check out my "Demo-" games on StencylForge (http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,16160.0.html)

I think it has to do with potential backlash from having to temporarily disable new user registrations (spam problems.) Once they turn those back on, hopefully that won't be an issue because I haven't been able to log on either. :)

EDIT: Apparently it's already been turned back on? That could be a problem then...
Do NOT PM me your questions, because I likely will not respond. If I have replied to your question on the forum, keep using that topic. Thanks!

well that's useful. Apparently I can postpone jury duty up to 90 days. So looks like I will be participating after all.

@Hecate: It does seem kind of weird that it would be on the weekend. Also I noticed it has two different dates. The 26th on the front, and the 22nd on the back. Kind of confusing.

If the past is any indication, I'll probably intend to participate and then not finish anything.

The theme isn't announced until the start of the jam.  The "theme slaughter" voting has started if you want to starting voting on themes.

I didn't participate in the Newgrounds Stencyl Jam, but I'll definitely join this one!

Just tried again today and I was able to login. I wasn't able to earlier though, so give it another go. :)
