You lovely, lovely people. Congratulations to you all.
If my SQL-fu is correct, there were 102 of you who contributed to this beautiful thing. That's nearly as many people as the last Pirate Kart had games. 50 of you contributors signed up for the site less than a day before it started. That's amazing. I can't thank everyone enough. Some of your work is astonishing, some of your work is terrible, and all of your work is appreciated. Be proud.
If you haven't already, please post a bio for inclusion in the Pirate Kart compilation. You don't have to give your real name, or a real picture of yourself, or anything -- though you can, if you like. It's simply what will show up as an "about the author" when the player clicks on your game(s) in the menu. Feel free to have fun with it. Have a peek at the existing bios for inspiration, if you like.
I've heard a lot of people asking when the compilation will be ready. The answer is, probably within a couple of weeks. The menu rewrite is going smoothly; I'm hoping to go from "ugly and unusable" to "thematically-appropriately ugly and borderline usable". Those of you who have ever booted up a Windows 95 shareware CD-ROM will understand what I'm going for.
A few people have asked how they can help. The best way to help, in general, is to play some games, comment on them, and mark your favourites. You may have noticed an "Add to favorites" link at the bottom of each game; when you like a game a lot, click it! Not only can people see which games you like by clicking on your user name, but I'll be able to incorporate this information into the compilation menu, providing a roadmap to the unmissable gems scattered within the daunting truckload of games that is the Pirate Kart.
Once again: Thank you all for making games and being a part of this remarkable event! I hope many of the newcomers stick around and make some more games with us for the March Klik of the Month Klub.
