Ahoy. Resident "trophy nerd" here. You're probably well aware that in the past year or so, as contests have come around we have ensured that we have added participant and judge trophies to the trophy sets awarded - and then gone back and retrospectively awarded all the old contests these trophies too! Well, we decided it was high-time we filled in the last few gaps, giving all of our level design / resource contests full sets of 1st - 3rd, participant, and judge trophies! Here are the new trophies we designed to fit into the old sets - with thanks to a bit of help from AmperSam and Deeke to fill in a few gaps! Hover over them for more info.
So if you ever entered, judged, or hosted one of these contests - check your profiles! Additionally, if you're really eagle-eyed, you may have noticed that we used to have two very similar sets of Overworld Design Contest trophies (the new set was an update of the old one we rolled out for OWDC #3 / 2019). We've decided to make the old set obsolete, which means we've now added participant/judge trophies to the really old OWDCs (#1 + #2 / 2009 + 2012). And of course, we have updated the big trophy list page with these new trophies too. (What!? There's a Trophy List page?)
Remember - if you don't like that we've added into your profile the fact that you came 92nd place in 2009's OWDC, or whichever contest really, you can ask a one of the Trophy Moderators to hide the trophy (or any trophy, really - no questions asked!).
Time for an event that breaks all the rules!!! Team entries only, multi-level submissions, standard and Kaizo, it's got it all! Check out the announcement here, and use this thread if you need help making a team.
Don't start your entries just yet, though! The contest officially starts Saturday, October 23rd, 12:00 PM EST.
You'll likely be aware that to aid transparency between the staff and userbase, and to hold staff accountable for our actions, we have a public ban and warning log available in our Site Questions & Feedback forum. If not, now you are.
Since the 28th of September, bans and warnings have moved to a new system, and our logging of these infractions is now automated (as opposed to staff updating a thread manually). The new log can be found here, and can be accessed via the same thread in the SQ&F forum. Infractions before the date of the new system are archived in the thread still.
The new system shouldn't affect you (unless you're naughty!) but we felt you ought to know that the log has moved for transparency! Have a nice day
I came by to dust off the cobwebs in the news section, but since it's October I've decided to leave them up! I also hit the switchy on holiday nicknames and colors, so you better change em up so you don't look like the fool named "Christmas Koopa Claws 9000".
And you better keep an eye out on Discord, for I hear there will be some witching going on this month......
