PyWeek - ADMIN: judging rules clarificationSorry for my quietness on this subject - I've been busy elsewhere.
If you can't get a game to work, then consider a couple of guidelines:
- Does the author of the game indicate that it should run on your platform (either implicitly or explicitly)? If they do, and the game does not work because it is broken, then you may penalise them for it if you wish (that is, rate them very low and check disqualification).
- If you cannot get a game working because you can't make the dependencies work, then it's not really fair to penalise the authors of that game. Hassle the authors of the dependencies that are so hard to get to work.
I will revisit this area of the judging for the next challenge, most likely by including an explicit "did not work" indicator in the ratings. I will need to consider how that will affect ratings though.
