Wayne currently has 415 votes and there are 430 productions on A.D.A. Meaning that he is pretty close to being the first user to vote all productions... Damn, i must hurry with those updates :)

I wish more people would vote, and especially the 'not so famous' demos. I'm going to increase the minimum votes to 15 required to be included in the charts.

As a general question, how do you feel about the charts? Do you feel that the charts are 'more or less' correct, meaning that productions in there deserve their place? Planet Potion has shot straight into first position since it was added and hasn't left it's pole position and probably never will. Is it deserved? What about the rest? Do you feel there are productions in there that don't deserve it or other ones that aren't there but deserve to be?

Personally, i thought finnmark / Ephidrena would rank much higher. And i feel the same for a lot of other Ephidrena demos.

most of the demos on top 10 are indisputable classics. however i think that 2 of 3 ppc prods should not be there =) I also find it strange that none of tbl's demos has made it to the list.

Hmm... I have never been a big fan of TBL's demos. Yes they have great code and superb design but they doens't have that 'thing' I'm looking for...
I'm pobably going to get flamed for this... :)

Not at all... everyone his taste i say. Personally, i was really fond of the old TBL (offa, equaliser) and Rain. Perfect Circle was stunning aswell, but Magia and the other one, which i can't remember right now, didn't impress me that much. Silkcut however restored my faith in TBL.

Still, i rarely rewatch recent TBL demos...for some reason. However, i always end up in my Ephidrena drawer when watching demos.

Dalton:
Are you talking about Cruel Karma Forms and Future Visions? Haven't seen Cruel Karma Forms myself...which is a pity because it does seem a stunning demo. And there are a 3 TBL demos in the top 30.

To have accurate charts, there should be a lot more votes. People always tend to register and vote for the most well-known productions (Desert Dream, 9 fingers, Enigma, State of the Art,...) which is a pity.

In the meantime, i have upped the minimum votes required to appear in the charts from 10 to 15.

Rain is kinda cool from TBL but they're not all hammers!! Peoples taste is different, why should you get flamed for that, this isn't Pouet (thanks god!)

It took some years, but now you really should add some more demos to A.D.A. :)

Also got a question, there's currently 725 productions listed but the latest added entry has id 728.
So does that mean that you removed, reserved or just skipped id for some demos?

And finally keep A.D.A. alive! My favourite DEMO webpage since june 2002 :)

@wayne: cool :) I still need to vote about 250 prods myself, which is a lot and more than i expected. I should start doing that soon.

Don't really remember what happened with the 3 prods. Afaik, i never deleted a prod which was online so i think i must have messed up at some point when adding them.

And thanks for the support. I'm still planning to add more prods but i'm hoping for a bit more user friendly interface to do that.

I don't get much time to download and watch demo's. I only vote for demo's that I have actually watched :)

i could have sworn that when i coded the website, i added an option to see which prods a person hasn't voted on yet in the user profile. It was in the filtering options, where you select the vote number. Probably got lost when the site was recoded? This means there is no way to see which ones i still have to vote.
