Nice try sidestepping the word "clash", but I can read worth half a damn. I highly doubt you actually looked at how the graphics fit and just went, "NOPE. CLASH." Disgusting.
Most of the graphical stuff you used here was SMB2 styled (the background and the tileset) so I would go with enemies that had the same style as the tileset and the background as I really feel spotting SMB3 and SMW enemies in the level very distrubing as they have different type of shading compared to the SMB2 background and the tileset.

There is more to a working theme than just shading, zlakerboy.

Do you actually think that or is that something you read in a clash pamphlet? I mean, I could give you that, getting enemies to share the same art style would help improve a theme, but does it really subtract that much from it? And another thing, shading? THAT'S the best rationale you can come up with? That is such a minor detail that most people will not notice nor care about it. You're sperging over colors used for no reason other than, I decree, that is what you think is a good level: not mixing graphics to create a consistent theme, even though people do this all the time and get higher scores than me.

You're biased, is what I'm saying. What else is new, but if your opinion is this subjective, I'm going to call it a shit opinion, and logically explain why it's shit.

Alrighty lemme say it in another way then if ya think my opinion is subjective.

The level didn't look very pleasant since none of the enemies in my honest opinion blend very well. The color of the enemies doesn't really matter, but in my opinion mixing styles together doesn't really look good. I personally would wanna go with one style rather than with a million styles.

Actually, your levels are really amazing in my opinion.

Anyway, I'm now expecting Tier 6+ based off of the current scores.

Wow, I past 4 tiers. My guess is I'm either going to be in tier 7 or 6. I'm a bit scared that I'm going to in the next tier. Will my level I submitted be an improvement or not? Anyways, good luck to all the rest of remainders!! :D

Exactly. You're taking points off for subjective things, and this is bad judging abilities. Believe me, I know, because I have more judging experience than you.

And don't tell me you're not taking points off for subjective things. You're using words in your posts like "in my opinion" and "personally", and these are things you should avoid when reviewing levels, because it's biased, and that's all.

Almost everything in level judging is subjective. A level could be all but impossible to one person and easy as pie to another. It could look awesome to one person and ugly to another. Almost every aspect of a level is subjective, so taking off points for something that's an opinion is exactly what every level judge does, when it comes down to it.

Quite correct that is why there are multiple judges for various events...

What krazykat said, basically. Reviews are composed of subjective opinions by definition. I suggest you revise your judging methods.

A lot of judges said he second moon coin is impossible! Just run from the far right platform and fly to get it!

Unless I submitted the wrong level, the star at ye end unliks the path to the first moon coin
All tree moon coins give a star! The star in the second section of the mane path is gotten from all three moo coins, an I remember uncheeking it. Valtteri could of made it vissible, but I remember hiding it!

I will post my video of it!
