So I can only add my new rule if and only if there are more than 10+ members who are interested in participating?

So I see that a huge chunk of the community was basically lost because of the following reasons:
  • Lack of testing closing in to 2011
  • Supreme became boring
  • No new editor features
  • Games became stale

Your plan of 'get more people via more complexity' has a fairly large flaw: people are less likely to participate because of the increased complexity. Arguably, you should of tried to streamline the HH process to make it simpler to enter, thus attracting more people.

It's the same thing I advised against in the world testing thread. You wanted to add more complexity for no real reason. While I don't has a snappy acronym this time, the basic idea remains the same - don't make things more complicated than they need to be.

What do you mean by stream lining the HH process?

Oh and by the way, I found this very useful tool for checking how many characters there are in a string of words, check it out, could be very useful for future Halloween's. http://www.lettercounter.org/

Streamline meaning less hoops to jump through. The process is already pretty dang smooth so there isn't much to do, but examples of (impossible or usually disadvantageous in some way), include killing the character limit, killing the limit on the number of names you can submit etc.

Can you give me an example please?

So for example I could want to submit the name "this is a super long name for levels or some such" which I wouldn't be allowed to do, due to the 30 character limit. Because it isn't allowed I might decide to not come up with a good name, and just swear it off altogether. A streamline (OK only kinda a streamline - the difficulty of submission is the same), would be to remove the rule. (which won't happen because the limit is built into the game)

OK better example: one requirement/hassle that people could feasible go through (I doubt this happens, but whatever), is that it is required to have a hamumu account in order to post on the forums. A solution to streamline this is to make a 4chan like thing where no account is required to post names, thus making there less hoops. Once again not something I think is desirable, but I think it makes the point.

Hmm, that could be a solution to solve the recent lack of participation, but then, if theoretically I find a way to have a site or something which allows non-members to suggest names, what will they be rewarded with?

That doesn't even make any sense.

It was a hypothetical used as an example. Nobody's trying to lobby it through.
