In other words when I asked who would choose the list of respected EAB members to vote on whether the game you made was any good or not your answer was: I will.

Seems pretty tenuous to me - you do realise that contributing anything creative means there's a possibility that people might say that don't like what you've produced? I say swallow that fear and make your game anyway. As long as you do your best and you're proud of your effort and what you've produced who cares what anyone else says about it?

That's fair enough - likewise, I don't want to argue or cause any resentment, I'm just offering an alternate point of view.
