About "FOSS game engine reimplementation", do they need to have an official update (not just some new commits for example) in 2019? Or just only created in 2019?

Quoting: CyrilAbout "FOSS game engine reimplementation", do they need to have an official update (not just some new commits for example) in 2019? Or just only created in 2019?

The description inside the category is:
QuoteWhat is your absolute favourite free and open source game engine reimplementation?
There's no date attached to it.

I think I need to make the descriptions bigger...people keep missing it.

Sorry Liam... Facepalm is required I think.

I've centered the description and made it a header, just to bring more attention to it since this appears to have confused many :)

Maybe it’s just me, but my eyes just skip right past the first half of the page to "Here's what's in this category currently!" Maybe I’m too used to skipping past the main page banner.

If it helps, I might do something like below, taking the category name out of the breadcrumbs and coloring the description so it stands out regardless of sizing.

I kind of feel like the form should be under the current listing too.

The form was moved, with a button to jump/highlight to it if needed. I agree it's better, might get people to actually look first before submitting.

Is it me or OpenXRay is being refused to the nominees for FOSS engine reimplementation? If yes, why?

It's not FOSS.

Hmm that's a shame, I compiled the engine myself and the game runs great on my machine. Fucking license. :(
