The Highlights of the Week Committee (abbreviated to HotW Committee) is a group of people that was created by AdmiralFjong (when he was KoGaMa's Community Manager), that is responsible for finding the best creations made by the community and then forwarding them to Michal, so he can make the HotW announcement on KoGaMa's news page on the WWW and BR server.
The HotW Committee checks the creations submitted by the community and they decide which of them deserve to get highlighted in one of the upcoming Highlights of the Week, and they can indeed submit their own suggestions.
This idea's objective was to make the community able to interact in a more direct way with the KoGaMa Staff and the selection of the highlighted creations, since the community tends to be able to find a lot more of great creations than the Staff could find, and make it a lot easier to find and highlight the best creations thanks to the larger number of people involved. In this way, the Community Manager could just publish the better filtered creations (results) of the HotW Committee's discussion and get a lot more free time to invest in other things related to KoGaMa's management (since the Community Manager would not have to invest that time checking all submitted creations made by the community, but the HotW Committee would take this responsibility).
HotW Committee after AdmiralFjong's KoGaMa Departure
When AdmiralFjong left KoGaMa, the HotW Committee wasn't that active, since there was nobody able to hear the Committee's opinion about which could be the next highlighted creations. So, after some months, a Discord server moderator called Dede made a proposal to Michal about implementing a new and easier method that could be used to choose creations for the upcoming Highlights of the Week. This idea was accepted and approved by him, and now, it's the current system that the HotW Committee is using to choose and forward to Michal great creations made by the community that deserve to be highlighted in one of these announcements.

HotW Suggestions#2988 [BOT]
HotW Suggestions#2988 is a Discord BOT created by Dede, which is handled by the HotW Committee to receive the community's suggestions about the creations that could get highlighted in one of the next Highlights of the Week. The best creations are forwarded to Michal, who tries to make the Highlights of the Week announcement once a week.
Tips When Using the HotW Suggestions#2988 [BOT] service
1.- The HotW Suggestions#2988 [BOT] must not be used to have a casual conversation. On the contrary, the bot must be used to send games, avatars, models or YouTube videos (related to KoGaMa) that you consider are worthy to be highlighted in one of the upcoming Highlights of the Week.
2.- Don't submit a creation more than once. No worries! The HotW Committee checks every submitted creation and takes them into consideration, but they only choose the ones they like the most for the next Highlights of the Week.
3.- The HotW Committee doesn't really have a set date and time for when they publish the Highlights of the Week results, since it depends on Michal. This happens because he has a lot of other things to do as KoGaMa's founder, so he publishes these announcements once he has gotten some free time. When Michal publishes the new Highlights of the Week's results, you should be able to see a KoGaMa news page for it on the WWW and BR server, as well as an announcement on the #announcements channel of the Official KoGaMa Discord server.
4.- Please be patient, it will take some time while the committee is checking and approving your creation.
5.- Content made with cheats can't be considered for the Highlights of the Week.
6.- Don't send links to projects; instead, send links to published games, since the HotW Committee members don't have access to your projects!
- Before the HotW Committee existed, the method that was being used to submit creations to the KoGaMa Staff to get your submitted creations highlighted in one of the next Highlights of the Week was sending an email to "firstname.lastname@example.org". The KoGaMa's Community Manager would check the submitted creations and highlight his favorites. However, this was discontinued after the appearance of the HotW Committee.
- Michal is currently taking care of listening to the HotW Committee's opinion about the creations that could get highlighted and then publishing the results in the Highlights of the Week announcement.
