I got $250AUD for my birthday. This is the first discretionary spending money I've had since June last year. I was going to build something cool like a raspberry pi cell phone or build a homebrew 6502 computer. But it has all been done before.
I always say I wanna give back to AtariAge because it has helped me combat my depression and psychosis, and has helped me develop as a person.
I wanna use this prize money to stage a competition - is this allowed? Is this a good idea to promote activity on AtariAge?
I am an ASM 2600 programmer, so my natural idea was to promote 2600 homebrew development - but I know there is a lot of 7800, Intellivision, and other consoles being developed for. I feel like it might be more fair to allow the competition to be a multi-platform contest.
What do you think? If it was just 2600, I would put equal parts of the 250 towards dual first prizes for ASM and batariBASIC first prizes.
What would be a good set of rules for a possible contest?
