Mini-Pyweeks?Going straight to the point, I'd like more Pyweeks. :)
Actually, I kind of like having twice a year Pyweeks, my suggestion is a bit different. I don't participate in Ludum Dares very often and others may know better about this (please comment if you do), but I know they have mini-LDs, which are more relaxed, unofficial LDs, in lesser scale, with no theme voting (themes chosen by a person or maybe on a discussion on IRC, I'm not sure, and sometimes they're more experimental) and with fewer entries. Does the thought of mini-Pyweeks interest you? It's just a suggestion to have more Pyweeks; perhaps a mini-Pyweek every one or two months outside the main event. Someone more informed could tell us if mini-LDs work well and what problems they have, if they have any.
They would possibly be separated from the main site (mini.pyweek.org, maybe), because the idea of mini-Pyweeks would be a more relaxed, more experimental and more frequent Pyweek, which probably would mean lesser games not so good as the ones in real Pyweeks, and therefore it would be better to keep the games separate. As with Pyggy, someone else instead of Richard can be in charge of it so he doesn't need to spend much time on it. If there's interest and approval and the only thing we'd need is someone to work on it, I'd be up for it, but I don't mind if someone else wants to work on it.
