In fact there are some other levels that aren't even in the contest like Ness-Wednesday's and ThePromiseIncarnate's

First off, that’s not how this works. Sometimes Core just posts the topic early due to other factors and it’ll be updated as needed. All the levels this month will be added to it.
Also, all of ThePromiseIncarnate’s levels have had their first public releases in different collabs, that are still accessible, 2-3 years ago. Level of the month has only included the first public releases of levels for a while now.

Already? Huh, I didn't think the thread would get posted this early (and yes, I'm aware that my levels aren't here, but obviously the op will soon be updated).

This video might be delayed a few days since there's too many branching paths in two of the levels that got uploaded recently
They're more or as convoluted than Sanctuary Fortress 2
Heck, this video might not be even out until next week

One of the bonus areas requires getting every coin in the level

Added in 2 hours 19 minutes 41 seconds:
Update:

Getting all the coins wasn't just for a small bonus room, it was the requirements for the secret exit and there's around 725 coins (including breakable bricks in total)
The first level took one and a half hour to record with the author's help live on stream, and using getdown, ahippinandahoppin, donthurtme, shadowstar and needaniceflower since it was super convoluted. Sanctuary Fortress 2 at least tried to give arrow indications.

The videos are going to take 20 minutes to download and probably another half hour to edit.

however the second one is more streamlined and was a lot shorter

Added in 2 hours 17 minutes 17 seconds:
Both videos took about one and a half hour to edit in total and now are 24 minutes. I'm about to legit get only 3 hours of sleep today.

Currently, I only need to record and edit 8luestorm's level. After that, I need to preview the video to make sure everything is accurate.

This video might not be able to launch on the first second of August since i informed a couple people their level links dont work. Ideally it should be available to watch tomorrow.

I'm having trouble deciding who to vote for not because levels are bad, they look cool, but I wasn't getting a feel for the levels. Can someone explain what levels you voted for and what levels I should consider? 5 More Days Left

Fortress by Dreadstump and Scattered Black and Whites by FlatKiwi seem to be fun levels in gameplay.

I voted for Cyber Castle since it is a level I enjoyed. I even have a coinless video of it I can still upload. (Saying that talking about things I found fun about it. Too bad it is a tad laggy.)

I voted for Fortress and Bio Spark Backwoods.

Why exactly is Saturn Valley included in the voting, though? IMO battle levels can't be compared to regular levels, seeing how they rely on completely different design principles.
