Do you have any advice for creating a One Page Dungeon or 24-hour RPG?

How much do you make sure that fights are balanced mechanically?

Have you ever played a game where the end of the world was pre-ordained and imminent, and all the characters knew about it ? How did that play out ?

If you were somehow accidentally sent back in time to a period 500 000 years ago, what trace of your passage would you want to leave that might be discoverable during the XXI century ?

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

Dude, just go do it. Wander over to the contests section, look at a couple of previous contests, and just go with it.

Except wait a couple months, please, because I'm doing the 24 hour supplement contest starting next week.

Do you have recommendations on (non-core) sourcebooks that added spells/items/effects/mechanics to your game?

In what RPGs are you currently the GM, and how are things going from your point of view ?

A more spécifique and narrowed-focus question then the preceding one,

As a spin-off from the "weirdest NPC name you've used" question:

Do players in your game dub NPCs with derisive nicknames? Do you think this practice makes the game better, or worse? If worse, what can a GM do to curb the practice?

What are some tips for constructing an effective experience point/advancement mechanism for an RPG with the goals of the game author/GM?

(I'm open to some serious rephrasing on this question. I suspect it needs clarification.)

Why are you bothering to answer QOTDs with replies like "I don't play fantasy games so the question dosen't apply to me"?

Genre of games you just don't want to play and why?

A mash up genre setting you would like to see.

How many sessions does a game have to be run to make it worth you time making a character for it?

Fist foe you defeated / killed / cleverly avoided in a rpg?

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Maybe out of respect to the questioner? To let people know that the question, at least, has been acknowledged?

Given the relative success of the "What do you like or dislike about class/level-based RPGs?" question, perhaps we should offer a few variations:

What do you like or dislike about…
…skill-based RPGs?
…storygames?
…diceless RPGs?
…monsters (rather than other people) as adversaries?

how often is it appropriate to bug the players for feedback on a game?

What singles to you that a game has jumped the shark?

Your preference, story arcs, or just a series of one offs?

Advice not for a new gm, but for being a player for a new gm?

For your game, what is your hard limit on how weird someone's character concept can be?
