I'm pretty sure it's just the restriction not being set. There are four possible settings:That's interesting, but it didn't seem to stop new accounts from voting, so either they were legit added to submit entries (I'm dubious!), or possibly that restriction wasn't set, BUT the games weren't made accessible to the public?
- Submitters only (people who specifically submitted their entry + designated judges + jam host)
- Submitters & Contributors (people who submitted their entry + people who were marked as contributors to a submitted entry + designated judges + jam host)
- Judges (designated judges + jam host)
- Public (probably limited to logged in users, but otherwise there's no requirement to be a participant)
So I imagine the Amaze Me Game Jam was set to allow the public to vote.
(jam host and designated judges are always able to vote; that's kinda their thing)
