Your reasoning behind opposing the new rule is stupid because everyone will still get to see the scores the judges gave you, and the average without the punishment minuses. The punishment only affects your final placement and it's perfectly reasonable as it's entirely your fault if you decide not to read the rules.

I'm about 35% with my level. Graphics are at 97% (I lack some of them) and the level itself is at 25%. I should really ghet out from my lazyness. (also I know this is quite off-topic right now but somebody is saying that).

Exactly. Moving a file or two out of a folder is not a big problem. I don't see why people even do that in the first place. It's easier, for me at least, to just make a folder, put a level and music file in it, then make the level's folder and put the graphics in. That way, I go to my level folder, and then my graphics folder. So that equates to, lemme see here, 1, 2, 3, 4 steps, including the creation of random folders. That is it.

I'll join! Hopefully I can actually come up with an interesting gimmick for the upcoming contest level!

We don't oppose the rule, we (or at least I) oppose the punishment.

Well if you oppose the punishment but not the rule, then why not follow the rule?

Just because someone placed folders incorrectly doesn't mean they disobeyed the rule; they might have forgotten or some other reason. I still think the points taken off should be reduced to 0.5, to prevent so much spacing.

Oh, I see what you mean. You're saying the punishment should be reduced, not removed completely. Eh, that kind of makes sense, as 1 point is a big deal when it comes to places. Maybe -0.5 is a better deduction.

Nobody is going to follow it. They are just going to do it the simple way by moving the lvl file outside of the folder.

Lol I just put the .lvl, the .mp3, and the graphics folder into a folder, and then do right-click -> Send to .zip.
I don't think it's technically breaking the rule, but it is bending it a tiny bit.
I already submitted my level though so it doesn't matter until next contest :P

Why are you all trying to overcomplicate the progress of having the lvl file outside of the folder?

It doesn't matter if you don't obey the rules or forget to obey the rules. It's your fault just the same.

I agree with this.

Also, does anyone find it a tiny bit funny that this contest has more rules than the forum itself (which has only 4)?

The punishment is not really unfair if half of the participants have been kept obeying the god damn rule for the past 3 contests.
