CreamD, as a ex-organisator you should know how stressful is the time during the compos. Also, why I should talk to you during 1k atari compo? I totally missed it.
The apostrophes are working fine. But there is a timeout for submit a message, spam filter.

This form is eating the posts that contain apostrophes, that are quite natural in English language. Please do something about it, because some people might lose their posts due to this and never try again. Fortunatelly I had copied the text before posting and then later sanitized it by removing apostrophes.

Thanx for great and cozy partyplace. Thanx to POL for surprising me on arriving with C64 orga tables placed on "classic" (behind the scenes/screen). That was a nice gesture! I am not orga anymore, but it was awesome to realize som things doesn not change (in a good way ;-). Respect Bro!. Mikezt, I am sorry that I was disturbing your calm during the compos, but still you should unlearn to unload your frustrations on people that are not part of the problem. I was trying to be helpful, but apparently the dude who was responsible for the partyplace was against switch off light behind the screen. If he wasn not, I would have switched them off to please Baze. This or that, you can never satisfy everyone, and trying to do so is a pathway to hell. Peace, mate. As for the rest, I really, really enjoyed this party. ZX Spectrum (not only, but especially) demos was (again) a lesson of maturity and creativity for every other 8-bit demoscene, especially the C64 scene. We tend to polish our demos and make them smooth, but I am afraid, oftentimes the fun factor is oftentimes sacrified for technical achievement (honor the exceptions, of course). Thanx to everyone I had chance to talk with, I am quite open for debates, although I do not seek them consciously, and I enjoy them greatly, most of the times. This was another Forever to remember! Thanx for great experience everybody. Greetings to my ex-group mates too. Have a nice meal everybody and see you again somewhere/somewhen.

- sleeping space is right next to the party place. floor is pavement floor but room has radiators. it is usually used as canteen
- there are sinks with warm water and we plan also to provide showers for selected hours
- unfortunately there will be no bufet this year on party place. there is groceries shop near by. payments in euro and by card. there is pub with pizza about 500m from party place
| 13/o3/2o23|| subject: Questions on facilities and food|| wrote: Aki|
Hi, me and some other people would like to know more details about the facility and food possibilities.
- Is there a sleeping place or sleeping room without cold floor?
- Is there any warm water and at least a sink (if not showers)?
- Is there an on-place catering and do they accept payment by card? If cash, do they accept CZ money or Euros?
- Is there a grocery shop in the neighborhood?
| 1o/o3/2o23|| subject: Stream|| wrote: CreaMD|
Yes, Webcam with microphone aiming at big screen during compos would be enough to bring atmosphere from the party to home screens. You need a computer with good connection. Ideally cable/optic. Service broadcasting the stream can be anything. You can stream for example to youtube.
| o6/o3/2o23|| subject: Re: Streaming|| wrote: mike/zeroteam|
Problems with streaming are:
- lack of organizers
- lack of technical skills
- lack of concept
None of current organizers will have time or will to take care of the stream. Stream will need someone who will take care of it.
As I know, nobody from us ever made a stream. We have no equipment or skills. You have to take in mind that Forever is not using pre-recorded videos of the productions, but we are using original computers. This can make streaming even harder.
What will be streamed outside of competitions? Will there be any graphics with info? Who will update it? Or is the idea just a webcam aiming the big screen?
| o6/o3/2o23|| subject: Streaming|| wrote: scamp|
Is the "no streams anywhere" a policy decision or due to technical reasons? If for technical reasons (not enough internet bandwidth, equipment, streaming system), SceneCity will be happy to help.
| o4/o3/2o23|| subject: Re: Remote participation|| wrote: mike/zeroteam|
Yes, email is the right way for contributions. No fees for entries and no streams anywhere.
| o3/o3/2o23|| subject: Remote participation|| wrote: spq|
Is the remote participation as easy as sending entries via platform-related email?
No entry fee on hollow tree stub after midnight, no secret handshake? ;)
Also, are you going to stream the compos via Twitch.tv or similar system?
With all Respect and love for 8bits,

For the first time in our 20-year history, we have to postpone the date of the FOReVER party to next year. It is due to the safety measures taken by the Slovak government - prohibiting all sports and cultural events because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
