Chocolate Contest X1 - Judge Applications (Submissions Closed)

Postby ShadowStarX » Thu Mar 12, 2020 4:45 pm

Welcome to Chocolate Contest X1!

Spoiler: show
Judge applications: you will be sent 5 predetermined levels to review. The host team will then pick out the best applicants, who will then judge the contest levels. You have to review the levels linked near the bottom of the post.

Judge rules, tips and guidelines:
  • You cannot participate in the competition if you're judging
  • You have to review all 5 levels, no exceptions.
  • Be sure to criticize constructively, not destructively. Being blunt is allowed but being rude is not. Also if a level is made with serious effort, give it a serious review. You can obviously make jokes in the review of a serious level but they shouldn't overshadow the legitimate feedback.
  • Your reviews should separate scores in the way of: (you may use decimals)
    • Design & Gameplay - 0 to 10
    • Creativity - 0 to 4
    • Aesthetics - 0 to 2
    • Formula: Design * (Creativity + Aesthetics + 4)
    • Example: 6.5/10 Design, 2.5/4 Creativity, 1.5/2 Aesthetics -> 6.5 * (2.5 + 1.5 + 4) -> 6.5 * 8 = 52/100
    • You don't have to calculate the score yourself but you must give the level a score in all 3 categories
  • You have to review the levels using SMBX2 Beta 4
  • Make sure you mention how occupied you are likely to be in the summer as that's when the judging period is likely to be
  • If you are successfully hired as a contest judge, you won't really have a deadline set in stone to review the levels but you shall generally try to finish them as soon as conveniently possible while assuring they're still good reviews. Important note: the amount of submissions can't really be estimated, so don't be shocked if there are going to be a lot more submissions than previous contests in the past 4 years
The judging period is estimated to start in late June.

Host Team:
  • Taycamgame
  • Radiance
  • Sancles-chan (not judging, but redistributing the levels and helping in picking the contest judge applicants)
  • ShadowStarX
Download the 5 levels for reviewing or here: link

If you want to apply as a judge, send me your applications via Private Messages on the forums or Direct Messages on Discord.
Judge applicants must send me 5 reviews of the levels linked above, following the guidelines listed. (preferrably a SINGLE .txt file)

My discord name and ID: @ShadowStarX#7955

Deadline for Judge applications: April 5, 10 PM EST
Chocolate Contest X1 Judges:
  • Enjl
  • 8luestorm
  • Taycamgame
  • Radiance
  • ShadowStarX
Cohost: Sancles-chan (will help in redistributing the levels)

I won't judge, but I am planning on participating
I believe and I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. If you do, put this in your signature.

Considering that post, should judges post their interest as actual posts or just privately DM Shadowstar?

I know DMing Shadowstar is a prerequisite that is required by all rights, though I just asked if judges had to announce they wanted to or not here as well. I should have asked Shadowstar vocally last night.

There is still plenty of time (2 weeks) left until the deadline.
But if you want to be a judge, make sure you can and will put enough time into judging, as rushed reviews are not likely to be picked.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

Don't miss the deadline if you're planning on applying!
As soon as you have finished your reviews, send them to me in a readable format if you haven't done so yet!

Good lucky everybody!

Only a little bit more than 2 days left to apply!
You should finalize your reviews and send them to me before the deadline!

Chocolate Contest X1 - Judge Applications (The successful applicants are here!)

Postby ShadowStarX » Mon Apr 06, 2020 6:54 am

Congratulations to our successful applicants:

Enjl
and
8luestorm

Which means, the judges for the contest are going to be:
  • Enjl
  • 8luestorm
  • Taycamgame
  • Radiance
  • ShadowStarX
I'd also like to say thanks to all applicants! Thank you all for participating.

The contest itself will have to wait a bit though, as it's only going to begin after the release of SMBX2 Beta 4 Patch 2.
And no, don't ask what day it's coming out, even the devs don't know, let alone the host team.

I will tell you I did not even finish my reviews and the reviews that were graded were my mach-ups. We know Enjl and 8luestorm made it.

If it's allowed, I'd like to paypal (or steam gift card) the winner of the contest 10 dollars. I really don't have a lot of money as I am a college student, and I just thought this'd be nice to do.
