True, I'm not known. I'm new, but I didn't see anyone else doing it so I thought I'd try. I'm a doer, not a talker.
This doesn't have to be my baby. In fact I'd rather someone else do it so I could just participate. But I didn't see any successful tradition so I tried to do a service for the community. It's just not going to work out, especially if as you say, the community feels entitled to fancy landing pages and expects this to be on par with the Ludum Dare.
The Game Maker communities have a game jam. They don't have a website at all. It's a sticky in the forum. That's it. They made do.
Stencyl has the StencylJam which is a big event hosted by the developers of Stencyl that has prizes, but it's also just hosted on the forums and blogs. I don't know.
I'm sorry, I guess? I didn't expect to be criticized for trying to do a service for the community, but I guess I see your point. I don't know, maybe I should just keep my head down from now.
And I see someone +1ed the comment. Message received, I guess. My sincere apologies, community members. I didn't mean to create such a debacle.
