Thanks for the helpful post#lm{1door}
an update:

this month we will be hosting a Yoshi's Island Level Design Contest! i know we've had an awful lot of Level Design Contests this year (and no results so far for any of our major three ones.... they're coming!), it's been a long long time since we've had a YILDC and it would be a great change of pace. it will begin on August 14th (probably).

the overworld contest has been removed from the slate this year due to VLDCX's enormous overworld collaboration project. hopefully we can do one next year because it's been a long time since we've had one.

the exgfx contest has been moved to later in the year as well, around november or december. an exact date has yet to be decided.

we will also have another level design contest later this year, but as for what exactly is unsure. the choices are basically Chocolate Level Design Contest, Halloween Level Design Contest, or some sort of Festive Level Design Contest for winter. it's been a while since we've had a Halloween Level Design Contest, but that doesn't necessarily mean you guys actually want to have an HLDC... we will probably do a poll for this rather soon, but if you have any strong opinions right now go ahead and share them in this thread.

as for Idol (the contest), it would not be smart to run that alongside VLDCX's overworld composition, as it would just probably cause people to either drop what they were doing in VLDCX to enter Idol, or it would cause the contest to have less attention than normal. so, for now, it has been removed from this years slate. hopefully we can do it as soon as VLDCX's overworld composition has finished, but we will let everyone know if any more details pop up.

We're already coming up with plans to make sure VLDC 11 won't be as much time consuming. But yeah, not much can be done about VLDC X since everyone and their mom want it to be special and awesome, lol.

Alright idol, here is what I am about to say and forgive me if I am doing something wrong with this post: Run the Chocolate Level Design Contest (CLDC) as-is this year. Reason being that any holiday-specific level themes can be judged within a general free-for-all contest that the CLDC is which allows for a diverse array of level settings one can come up with that is not tied to any holiday (Halloween and Christmas being the relevant holidays in dispute) and that having holiday-specific level contests should only last for within the duration the months that hold those holidays allow for the setting.

Additionally, and this might sound radical of me so please bear with me here, but I personally believe that the CLDC can afford to run with a timeframe that overlaps other content creation contests such as the ExGFX contest*. That is, if the timeframe in which you (as in, the staff in charge of deciding these contests) may allow for that to be done before, concurrently, or after, your call. I say this knowing the level design applications regarding graphical, ASM, and musical resources that are made can go into levels that are of interest to level designers like myself who would very well be inclined to enter said level contest and perhaps see how those resources fare in a level design setting if given the opportunity, in this case to illustrate my point, which the CLDC is placed before the ExGFX contest so far as it stands on the event calendar currently. I will also say if the duration of the timeframe does intersect with the ExGFX contest, the CLDC participants who decide to use that timeframe to wait for said contest's information to be posted are taking a risk by doing so if they start in the middle of contest's timeframe at best, late at worst by depending on another event to be inspired to do their levels, nevermind the fact that if the individual entrants of the ExGFX contest will allow for their own graphical entries be used by the CLDC participants at all.

If that point above you find to be rather nonsensical or insensitive, forgive me. Thats p much what my thoughts are.

* = Side Note: In this case, perhaps strongly in this case I have held the notion considering that a graphics creation contest that is, if it is held this year if its going to be another tileset/bg theme considering the historical context of the past few ExGFX contests this site has ran so far does have level design applications to which I am not opposed to be seeing a level design component be involved for that contest if you, the staff have plans for that be applied and if not, feel free to either dispute or disregard this particular thought here.

[19:43] <StrikeForcer> I also want to say that "because everything on the internet is definitely true!" is a derailment tactic that serves as a shorthand change for "I dont accept the facts"

[19:44] <StrikeForcer> When the information posted clearly is fact-based.

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.

Yea, the organizer kind of decided to drop it when it was supposed to happen, so we've been looking for someone else to manage that.
VLDC11 won't be this much time consuming as Lunar Magic >2.43 uses double amount of Map16 pages. It'll be a lot easier to insert all the map16 tiles in one ROM. Thus VLDCX collaboration hack's gonna be revealed sooner than without LM >2.43.
Insert some pun here
anything planned in 2018 yet.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you have questions, suggestions or complaints about not finalized dates, speak to the PR Team Manager (idol). Do not ask other staff members about these.

He could have just PMed idol instead of bumping a thread that hasn't been updated in 1 month and has no info regarding 2018 events whatsoever

Just saiyan
ok thanks.

not trying to start an argument; this isnt directed at you just general inquiry, but the wording on that limits it to non-finalized dates, which implies events we know are coming up, but want more information on. I think that's different than being generally curious on the going on's in the New Year. I guess it's still early in December, but it feels a little odd to not know about anything that we have to look forward to in 2018 (besides obligatory contests we can assume are coming up, just no idea when). And by weird I mean intriguing. the suspense is killign me?
