Will there ever be another DemoCompo?

I don't think there's been one since 2013, and I think it'd be really fun if we brought those back.

You know those demo songs you get when you download FamiTracker? There were competitions on the old forums to decide which songs were made demo songs. Hence the name "DemoCompo".

I myself would like this to be brought back. I had the chance to participate in the last one and it was really fun, especially because the prize is your entry becoming a demo module for FT. There were 7 installments in total.

If for any reason this compo won't be held anymore, perhaps we could do something similar? I think hosting a space for the winner entries within this website would be a cool incentive for people to participate. I was thinking of a stickied thread in each music section, depending on whether the entries are originals or covers, and as more installments are held, more songs get added to those threads. People could comment on them too.

I think it would be perfect to hold another one right now, with the release of 0.5 seeming to be just around the corner. Perhaps we could hold a DemoCompo 8 to coincide with its release?

I think that's a good idea. Let's see if the others have anything to say about it...

With the treatment from users towards jp for backing out of his previous compo, I wouldn't be surprised if he's offput from continuing the series. Regardless, this is an assumption and I think it'd be best to see if he still has interest. At a much later date of course.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that... Well, let's hope he's still up for it.
