Folks,

I've been getting a fair bit of mail about the status of the IRTC. I hope to
have some sort of indication of the direction for you to take within 24 hours
of this post. For now, please just wait.

As promised, here is my response:

We have not heard from Jesse, which is a worry. The other active IRTC admin
(Chip) was holding off in the hope he would respond, since the tasks of
releasing the rounds are usually done by him.

Chip has agreed that the best course right now is to release the round for
viewing, which will be done within 24 hours. Voting will not be enabled at
this point.

With respect to the direction to take for the future ... I have some
comments regarding this. I will make that shortly in a new thread.

regards,

-- Chris Cason

So what's the status of the IRTC?

What I expected would happen by this point - now that several months have
passed, and it's abundantly clear that the last IRTC admin is AWOL - is
that Chris would be asking if anyone would be interesting in taking over
the admin role.

I could be wrong, but that doesn't seem to be happening.

The IRTC itself seems to be on permanent hold. The prior contest images and
animations are "available for comment", but none of these comments seem to
have been posted.

The impression I get is that the prior IRTC administration has managed to
alienate a lot of people, including Chris and ex-IRTC administration. The
workings of the IRTC seem to have been done out of sight of the general
public.

Chris has spoken of a "clone" of the IRTC, but it's not clear to me why
someone can't just take over the administration role. The IRTC rules are
laid out, the structure is in place... What's issue?

So what's the plan? Is there going to be some effort made in continuing the
IRTC, or will it be left in permanant limbo?

Only six weeks have past. I would recommend at least two or three more
months of patience...

Ah! The modern world, everything should be instant :)
Strange behaviour form people who will wait an hour for one line of an image
to render :-)

Good plan. And as for this global warming thing, another century or so of
complacent inactivity should let us know for sure whether or not there's
really a problem.

Call me overly sensitive, but do i sense a slight hint of sarcasm in 
that statement? ;)

In a more serious state of mind, i'm sad to see the IRTC fall into 
limbo. It's (was?) a place where you can (could?) send in your 
contributions and (quoted from the rules) "don't have to be any good." 
When it comes to 3-D, there's not much of that around the web any more. 
E.g. i wouldn't dare enter any of my stuff into the galleries of the 
Cinema4D forum that i also frequent, simply because i can't compete with 
users that do things like character design or architectural 
visualisation or movie f/x for a living. IRTC is/was where hobbyists or 
after-hour dabblers like me could go and get feedback for their work, 
and get a regular challenge to work on, learn and improve.
Then there's YouTube where you simply get lost among millions of dumb 
stunts and/or even dumber comments spewed out by spambots, and that's 
about it. Then there are all those teams of graphic design students that 
build a video as final exam (like all theses SupInfoCom people), or f/x 
pros with too much time at hand (e.g. 405-the-movie).

Doesn't leave much space to fit in...

   Gah, that's the way I see it. I really don't get it. All those years, and 
no-one can talk to the guy hosting it.

    Or, did Thorsten hint at what's to come?
