Volte asked in another thread where this was posted. It was buried in an old MMORPG post, so I'm digging it out and giving it its own topic, because my criteria could probably use some improvement.

Scoring system as it stands:
1. Doesn't know any programming
2. Wants someone else to do their programming
3. Has a "great idea"
4. Delusions of grandeur (better than WoW, etc)
5. Will simulate the ENTIRE UNIVERSE and you can have ANY JOB including AMBULANCE DRIVER
6. Has "artist friends"
7. No up-front payment
8. Amusing royalties offered
9. Deficient English skills
10. Wants to write it in Visual Basic
11. Has read the MMORPG post but thinks it doesn't apply to them
BONUS POINTS:
-Subtract user's number of posts from 5. If positive, add to score.

Add number of criteria filled, plus bonus points.

Suggestions?

Your wish is my command, though this is just a quick tweak that could probably be better:

iPhone Scoring System
1. Doesn't know any programming
2. Wants someone else to do their programming
3. Has a "great idea"
4. Wants multiple games
5. Doesn't have a Mac
6. Idea has already shown up more than once in the App Store
7. No up-front payment
8. Amusing royalties offered
9. Deficient English skills
10. Wants to use DirectX
BONUS POINTS:
-Subtract desired development time from 3 months. Add month difference to score if positive.
-Subtract user's number of posts from 5. Add difference to score if positive.

Can someone write me an iPhone game based on this by the end of today and then I'll publish it on the App Store for them?

Oh, I forgot the really good idea for the iPhone version of this game - because of the internet connection it can be a MMORPG too - but I still want it by the end of the day.

I think we should also add some bonus points if they acknowledge the main post explaining why people such as themselves cannot create an MMORPG, yet seem to think it doesn't apply to them.

Oh, and if they want to write their MMORPG in HTML as well.

When I first read the title for this thread, I thought it was talking about making an MMORPG for the iPhone. My first thought was "Oh no, and I thought they couldn't get any worse..."

Well it was only a matter of time, I feel dirty after reading it. Why do they all just want to do the design stuff?

LOL That thread is hilarious!

P.S. So do we get to combine the points systems if it's for a mmorpg on an iPhone? I think that would be appropriate.
