Tip: Try sketching out ideas for overworlds and levels. Even if they don't manage to fit into Lunar Magic completely, at least you have a base to work from, instead of doing it all from scratch.

N - No test contest. I'm thinking of a level design contest, which doesn't allow the creators to test their levels before entering. It might be a stupid idea, lead to highly unsatisfying products and be hard to pull of (everybody would need to record the whole process of creation), but I don't know... would love to give it a go

A - afternoon level design contest

levels can only be worked on in the afternoon. your computer will be monitored remotely 24/7 by a team of SMWC mods for any suspicious morning or nighttime lunar magic activity

B - beta level design contest

participants must finish their level, but then submit an older version of the level. the finished version must then be destroyed

C - carbon level design contest

only living enemies can be used in the level, such as dino rhinos, rex, or koopas. enemies with a nondescript or unclear living status (i.e. grinders, magikoopa magic) may not be used

D - default level design contest

you must submit level 105. with no edits. in the case of a tie, the trophy must be split between the winners

E - extreme level design contest

participants must create their level while bungee jumping

F - feudal level design contest

collab-only contest in which the landowners provide the land and objects for their tenants, who in exchange provide level testing

G - galaxy brain level design contest

participants must only create levels with the most mind-bending and crazy puzzles imaginable, such as clearing a column of coins before pressing a p-switch

H - hashtag level design contest

level creators cannot submit their level and must instead upload it to social media with the hashtag #SMW. you must then simply hope that the judges find them

I - imagery level design contest

contest participants will upload their level by submitting a series of screenshots of the level. the judges must then piece together what is happening and "play" the level that way. this is a great way to do a contest since so many people have significant experience judging levels through pictures alone already

J - Jazz Jackrabbit - Candion level design contest

all levels must use this port or they will be disqualified

K - kinda level design contest

participants must sorta create a level, mostly before the deadline. then most of the judges will maybe judge your level, and then trophies will somewhat be handed out someday

L - lawsuit level design contest

participants must submit a mario fangame, rather than a hack

M - median level design contest

this would be the same type of contest we normally have with the same rules. however, the person who scores exactly in the middle of the pack will receive the 1st place trophy, and so on so forth (with true last and true first both scoring last)

N - new level design contest

the novelty of this contest is that it is brand new, which is great for the staff since they'll never have to host this contest more than once

O - omnipotent level design contest

no need to submit your level; judges will experience it while you are creating it

P - premium level design contest

please donate the minimum $5.99 donation charge to participate in this extremely exclusive, prestigious SMWC level design contest

Q - questionable level design contest

participants must use either boss bass, phanto, or a combination of both

R - revolutionary level design contest

participants must create an entire new genre of video game design with their level

S - subscription level design contest

participants must send judges 1 screen of their level every month over the next year. at the end of the year, the judges should finally have the whole level

T - themed level design contest

participants must come up with a level that fits the theme (this theme is not to be explained)

U - undercover level design contest

the 4 judges will all submit levels as well to completely throw off anyone's guess of who the judges are

V - very level design contest

levels must all be extremely long in this contest

W - worldpeace level design contest

only worldpeace may enter this level design contest

X - xylophone level design contest

okay I got nothing

Y - yearlong level design contest

VLDCX makes a return

Z - zero level design contest

all you have to do is not make a level, and you win. just, literally don't make a level. don't do it

D - Double Level Design Contest. There are two rounds. The first one is open and the other round is for anyone who makes the cut. Everyone must make two levels in the first round and another one for the final round. Anyone who makes just one in the 1st round gets disqualified. If you're unable to finish the 2nd level, you can resign. Anyone who withdraws or gets DQ'd in the final will be placed at the bottom of the list of who made the cut.
F - Forest Level Design Contest. Would sound less weird than 'Xyloid' and it'd work as well.
Funky Level Design Contest. Everyone must make an enjoyable level that uses green berries, which add 20 seconds.
I have a Discord server as well!

Tribute Level Design Contest - Must make a level that tributes to other games, judged on how the referenced game is recognized by judges + how design is executed. To make it fair there's only a few 3 or 4 targets designated and the judges are trained on possible references already.

Fixme Level Design Contest - The host submits a level that's been ranked last at another LDC and contestants must improve it while still preserving the level owner's idea.

Scenery Level Design contest - No enemies and no time limits, just a hero wandering around and finding beautiful scenery thrown all around (it overlaps with Aesthetic LDC).

I think MLDC would be Mixed Level Design Contest, where people make and submit levels based on which LDC rules they want to choose—either Old-School (No custom resources, Lunar Magic only = Final Destination), Vanilla (Lunar Magic + SA-1 + Custom Map16 + AddmusicK), Base ROM (Same as Vanilla, as well as the assets included in the base ROM (custom blocks and sprites, and graphics from other games)) and Chocolate (Lunar Magic + custom resources (incl. ASM and Music)).
