Tip: Remaking levels from other Mario games is strongly discouraged, especially popular ones (World 1-1 from SMB or SMB3, for example), as their over-presence in Mario games, official or not, often makes them uninteresting to play.

If you're not going to join you don't have to post something like this.

Anyway, I'd love to join, but I likely won't get very far. I've only ever gone up against Megafonzie and I don't have any solid strategies for it.

By the way, I hope that everyone signing up for this actually KNOWS how to play Chess ...
I'll give it a shot. Sign me up. Now...I just need to get decent computer time...
Yeah, I'm in. :)
Heh, I'll enter. Not that bad in chess actually. May have a hard time beating me probably.
Edit: I can't make a screenshot of me winning. Can someone tell me how in PMS?

Crap, I thought I did, but I was playing against the easy computer yesterday and lost 10 times in a row... Been a long time...
As long as you know the rules, who cares? Actually, at Chess.com they won't let you make illegal moves, so the worst that happens is you get slaughtered in the first round...

I'd like to point out that computers are in no way a good method of testing your skill. Easy mode on a computer means it will look 1-5 turns ahead in every possible contingency and pick the best move based on that. Medium is ~3-10 and hard is ~10-1000. I'd suggest playing a human instead. There are lots of people on the site to play, too, rather than computers. In my opinion, the human factor is part of what makes chess fun.

Those numbers may not be accurate and I'm just guessing etc, but I'm pretty sure that's how chess computers work.

Simply press the PrintScreen/PRTSC button on your keyboard, open Paint, and Paste (CTRL + V).

As I said on the IRC, this sounds pretty fun, so sign me up! I might not get all that far, but whatever. Good luck everyone!
I'm probably going to join. But before I set that into stone, I have some questions.

1) How long do you have to face your opponent? (by that, I mean what day do you have to have your match by)
2) How will the matches work if there is an awkward number of participants?
3) If you forget to take a screenshot of yourself winning, can you just PM saying you won, as well as have the loser (assuming it's not a sore loser) PM you saying that they lost?
4) You mentioned trophies. Did you actually work it out with a mod to get official SMWC trophies, or just normal images?

If I have other questions, I'll ask them as I think of them.

I'll be giving ten days per round.

Some participants will start in the second round rather than the first. The number of people who do this lowers as the amount of entrants approaches a power of 2. I will join the tournament if there is an awkward number of entrants.

I believe Amos DeFamos mentioned earlier in this thread that chess.com keeps records of wins and losses over the previous 30 days. I'll use those if it's impossible to get a screenshot.

4) You mentioned trophies. Did you actually work it out with a mod to get official SMWC trophies, or just normal images?

I've made my own trophies already and have gotten permission to give them to the winners. Here they are on order of place:

Wait, is there like a "save and quit" feature on chess.com? Also, is there a chat feature?
Okay, then. I'm in. (unless some giant disaster occurs and I have to go hide in a sock)

Question that won't change whether I'm joining or not, but I'll ask anyways:

-If the match hasn't been done after 10 days, will both users be disqualified?

Not in live mode, which is the mode you will be using for the tournament. You'll have to play your games in single sittings.

Yes. No exceptions.

I'll join, though I'll likely be disqualified due to 3I syndrome. (irregular inactivity issues.)
Joining. I'm not the best at chess, but mo point in not giving it a shot anyway.
I've decided to cap the number of entrants to the tournament at 32 so the bracket won't be all unfair/uneven. If you want to be one of the last few, sign up quick!

If there is still a spot left, I guess I'd like to join.
