IT IS OFFICIAL...i think.
(ORIGINAL QUOTE FROM DAVIDC)
"There is a new contest planned, yes. That is all I have to say at this point in time Smile"
though, to be accurate, it may not be this one, but I'll assume it is a level making contest of any kind.
I'll keep my original message down here:
Did you guys here at goofans have a level making contest already?
If not, you should have one soon.
You can put together the best levels together in a chapter.
And each chapter could be each contest that you have (for example, a 2012 contest would be chapter 1, 2013 contest would be chapter 2). And the winner gets an awesome badge and their level is the last level of the chapter. And you can have a certain theme to go by for the levels.
that would be sweet.
I propose, that if this contest is to be, that there should be:
This version of WoG could be named "GooWorld" (or GOOW)
A chapter be made (in GooMod if possible, if not possible, a tab in goofans that says "contest Chapters" starting with "chapter 1 (2011)" or something like that.
I said there should be a theme... not sure.
Ratings be done billboard style (thanks Albino Pokey)
Moderators should have their separate category of "challenge level" for the chapter.
Perhaps you can put a password on the tab for the challenge level and you only get it after beating all levels of the contest? Hmm... or perhaps put a password on all the level tabs except the first one, unlocking one in order. Just a suggestion to promote playing an awesome chapter instead of skipping everything.
A great way to create more badges,
the winners of the contest (all the same, no grand winner or whatever, keep it equal, if they want to show that they got the position for the last level, they can put it in their signature or something),
the winner of the challenge level contest for the moderator,
and a badge for completing all of the levels(not including the challenge)
and a badge for getting the OCD on all of the level(not including the challenge), and a badge for completing the challenge level's OCD.
(that would be a total of 5 badges, only 2 available to winners).
That there be standards for submitting levels, as usual:
1) Must follow Goofans standards for submitting levels (no plagiarism) and if its serious like plagiarism, actions will be taken against the person.
2) no submission of levels already in Goofans, come up with something new please
3) whatever standards the mods/site creator or whatever wants
in fact, if this contest is to happen, everything would be under the will of whoever organizes it. Keep in mind these are proposals!
oh, and deadlines. Once it is past deadline, its done. There should be a warning for when the deadline is approaching.
The positive sides to this contest:
We get to see people in action doing their best (if they choose to do their best )
We could upload videos to youtube or somewhere, following a custom chapter storyline that people can see, perhaps bringing some people here.
We get a chapter done that is exclusively done by ALL of goofans, instead of just individual projects that may take forever and ever. All organized in a nice GOOd package.
can't think of any.
I personally think the theme should be something along the lines of
"Chapter 2011: Violation of Access"
the story is that the goo balls find themselves in a jungle somewhere in gooworld, where a giant goo temple draws them inside... but access is prohibited!
Levels ideas could be from crossing gaps,rivers, climbing giant hills, avoiding traps in a temple (indiana jones? rofl) avoid getting burned by the temple torches, etc. It should be obvious that ideas are almost infinite, except you can't use ISH themes.
so what do you guys think?
