Did any of your other worlds ever get finished? Its probably better to make 1 good world than 3 or 4 unfinished ones.

Just because none of his worlds have been released doesn't mean that they haven't been finished. They either have things that he hasn't fixed (and perhaps hasn't even been informed that needed fixing) or else he hasn't sent them to the right place, so nobody is reviewing them at all.

It's a shame to see someone is actually doing something here and everyone else just plops on them :/

Not at all, I didnt realise they had been sent to WTG and I was only curious as to if he had finished the worlds. He was, however, pumping them out rather fast, hence the slight critisism.

It was the piling on that was off-putting, not the original question.
(Surely, if so many people would pile on, somebody must have at least searched for the answer first? .... Nope.)


That said this IS total mayhem, but I think polls in TM should have a little safety from such things since you can't put polls anywhere else (unless that's changed since last I checked).

Lightbulb Re: ScientifikHorrorMadness-1

So I came up with a few ideas and stages for SHM-1.

It will be a bit like the HH contest but with a few changes.

26th February-Suggest Names Thread Starts
(After 10 Days)
6th Of March-Vote For Names Contest Starts
(After 6 Days)
12th Of March-Thinking Stage(this stage is where people try to think of how they will design their levels.And give a little time for people to plan their levels)
(After 6 Days)
18th Of March-Start Building
(After 20 Days)
8th Of April-Testing Stage
(After 4 Days)
12th Of April-Release
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So what do you think of this plan for the new world series.

So will this be your own project, or will you be expecting/welcoming others to build a world with the same levels?

I'm not sure how many people would go for that, and if you want to start a collaboration type thing I would urge you to revisit the monthly merge thing. (I think people would be willing to make 1-3 levels in a week to participate in monthly merges if they came back).



If you are planning to do a HH type thing, then I think you're making it too structured having time set out where you can 'plan' but not officially start building.

I'd also have to ask, on the 'release' will you be releasing them on an outside site like mediafire, or will you be sending them to Jamul? (And if you do that, then it's up to the Testing Collab when it is actually is released).




Anyway. I'm not sure if people will go for another HH type thing.

Okay,I Get Your Point,(and yes it's a HH-Type Thing)But don't you think it's time
to add a bit of variety,other than having the usual -Sand,Winter,Water,Dirt.
I Thought I would add a bit of "Space" To the contest.
----------------
And Now your release question.Well I am going to send it to Jamul.And I am
going to test the worlds by myself.
----------------
I am getting a bit tired of all of this pileling,I say I want to add something new
to Hamumu and you guys just pile on me.

I was not trying to pile on you or put you down, I was merely inquiring about some of the details which weren't very clear to me and making a few comments on the idea in general. I have good intentions here.

I am looking out for the interests of... Well, everyone... in the sense that it's a real bummer when things start up, and then never really get off the ground. HH, WW, and SS have all either decreased in popularity or died out all together and I don't think it's because people are bored with the theme.
I'm just not certain that what you are proposing would be welcomed and embraced very well.

The way I would try to go about it would be to perhaps start up a merge world instead. Put down the rules, give guidelines for the theme, and then let people build 1-3 levels. Making a whole world is a daunting task, but most any world builder could pump out 1-3 levels.
You could even have people suggest names, then builders have to choose from those names for their levels (First come first serve on the names, so there won't be multiples of the same named level).


EDIT: After rereading my own post I noticed that it kind of repeats itself in the second half (below here). The second bit is sort of an explaination of my thoughts posted above. /EDIT


And that's all I have, questions and comments. You can go ahead and do things the wy you like and see how they turn out (Nobody but me has given any input whatsoever, so that shows a certain lack of interest in the idea to begin with) or you can try to get more input from the community on what they might want to do.

My thoughts and input come from sitting in the chatbox all day during BHE:
I heard a lot of people complaining about making their hub levels and not having any ideas for certain names, or not having the time to finish a full 9 levels. What I take from that it: people (especially novice world builders) can't handle all the hassels of creating a full world in a month. So my solution would be: structure it as a merge world instead.

Again, I'm not trying to 'pile on,' I'm just trying to give and explain other options.
