Fangame Marathon 2017 Date Discussion
« on: March 01, 2017, 12:40:22 PM »
Hi everyone! Itís that time of year to get the ball rolling for Fangame Marathon 2017! Iím excited and I hope you all are too. We as a community need to decide the date the event will take place, which is what this thread is for.

First though, an important change. A few of us decided itís best to ďrebrandĒ and use the acronym FM instead of FGM. This is because the old acronym turned up very unsavory things when newcomers Googled it (donít do it yourself, seriously not worth it), so letís use FM from now on.

(non-final logo)

The tentative date for FM 2017 is June 16th - 18th, starting at around 12:00 PM EST Friday and ending around that time Sunday. Other secondary options if needed are June 9th - 11th and June 23rd - 25th.

We would like to know if that date works for the majority of potential runners and tech help volunteers (and non-speedrun event submitters). So, if youíre thinking of or planning on participating, please post here to let us know if that date works for you, or if you notice anything wrong about it, or if you absolutely canít make any date along with another date suggestion. If you want you can also message me at Patrick#0303 on Discord.

The main announcement thread for FM 2017 with all the information will be posted soon (within a week), along with a FM planning discord. This thread should be only for discussing the date; please save other questions and comments til the main thread and discord are posted. Thanks for reading!

Sounds like a good date for me, and it doesn't seem to clash with anything like SGDQ or ESA which is a plus. :atkLove:

Seems like a good date too me, my final exams end before that date so it should be fine. If my internet can handle streaming then I might attend in this event; who knows  :wixSanic:
Doing art and programming as of now and playing fangames from time to time. If you ever need me for sprites or something else send me a discord pm in the I Wanna official discord channel.  Also sup.

idk but in australia that should be fine, you might wanna check dates for the community members who go too schools just to make sure that it isn't a pain for anyone who wants to participate in the stream.

June is a relatively event-less month (excluding possible birthdays of course), and i'm not sure how it goes in the northern hemisphere, but i imagine you guys would be on summer break? If so, then it all lines up fairly well actually! I'd love to help out this year on the tech side of things, as i don't think i'll be able to run another game this year. I look forward to future news and announcements on the subject! :)
