Re: Pokémon Topic

Never been sure why people pick between one of the two versions, I always get them both when they come out.

Re: A legitimate request towards the staff

When was that point even made in the first place, though? As I have said countless times before, if a level truly was deserving of being featured, it would garner a higher score from the judges. Is this not true?

Re: A legitimate request towards the staff

Second, you completely missed my explanation of how it would work: There is no issue with "the levels that deserve to be featured may not necessarily be the best scoring levels" because it's simple; if the level was really deserving to be featured, the Level Judges would give it a good score.

Re: A legitimate request towards the staff

It wouldn't be possible to rig the poll, since the way I saw the system would be to have a thread in which people post the name of another designer; there's no voting by the general population. What? And as I've mentioned a few times, yes the Level Judges would play through those people's recent le...

Re: A small question for Hub levels

There isn't a way to do it on a section-by-section basis, but I'm fairly certain that you can make a secondary hub level and use that after a certain point, though I'm not sure how reliable that is since I haven't tested it out myself fully, but it is one of the features I've been working on in my e...

Re: A legitimate request towards the staff

Bias with a blind judging system will be identical to bias without one. You have no idea how easy figuring out who made a level is. The sane way to circumvent bias is to have competent judges. I wasn't aware it was easy to figure out who made a level, but then again, I haven't played through a lot ...

Re: A legitimate request towards the staff

I don't think scoring is absolutely necessary Then what is the purpose of "judging" in the first place? If you want a surefire way to determine a featured level, you need to send in all the levels anonymously, and have the Level Judges judge them by actually playing through the levels and giving th...

Re: A legitimate request towards the staff

The issue with this imo is that the levels that deserve to be featured may not necessarily be the best scoring levels. I still like the idea of a nomination system better and then having the Level Judges choose from the nominees But here's how the system would work: At some specific period, like at...

Re: A legitimate request towards the staff

This might be one-off, but what about a system where once a week every month we hold a "contest" of sorts for people to get their levels featured in the following month, instead of taking the highest rated levels? This might help to motivate people into making levels as it gives them a week's deadl...

This is an extremely good movement you are all focusing on, and I hope you the best in your quest to restore Mario to Super Mario Bros. X. I would indeed participate and help out if I could, but sadly my peers do not understand the importance that Mario has on the every day lives of people in this w...

I support having just a "Levels" forum, if that's what you're getting at.

Also, I want to ask, since I don't really digress in the "forum politics", can I have some examples of people saying things along the lines of "it's just you and a few others that feel this way" in any given context?

Re: Site Discussion Thread

I've only linked one poll made by myself like this, and what makes them legitimate is that Strawpoll checks for duplications, IPs, and other stuff like that to keep them accurate. Yes, I am aware of that, but I do hope that you're aware that people can still manipulate and use proxies to vote multi...

Re: Site Discussion Thread

Strawpoll is reliable and it deflects false accusations of people being in the minority by showing numerically how popular something actually is. That's basically what polls are for. I wasn't doubting the reliability of Strawpoll, I am aware of how useful and reliable it is, and I do know what poll...

Re: M31 - A New Terror, Z-Fighters Unite! SIGNUPS

Just as a forewarning, if I suddenly start dropping in activity later in the game, that means I've gotten busy with a project. It shouldn't happen, but it might, so I thought I'd throw that out there.
