This is the calendar for the events we will hold in 2019. Dates in italics are tentative, so they may be changed around or removed. Events in italics may be moved to different months or not held at all.

The entire year is not planned out in advance. Events will be added to the calendar as we plan them, and some events may be planned and started so spontaneously that they won't be added to the calendar ahead of time.

If you have questions, suggestions or complaints about not finalized dates, speak to an admin. Do not ask other staff members about these.


Feel free to discuss events and suggest new ones in this thread. You can also send event suggestions through PM to any Public Relations person. If you want to discuss an event being held in 2018, use the 2018 Event Calendar thread instead, or that event's discussion thread if it has one.
I thought that it was already confirmed that BLDC will happen instead of VLDC11. If either happens, I'm gonna do my best!
Any reason as to why 7 Up has different logos in USA and the rest of the world?

Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!

why are the "best" puns literally the ones that are so cryptic that only a few people will get it tho #wario{-_-?}
Layout by Mathos
anyone can make a really obvious pun

everybody's caught up in all the puns but nobody has realized that / is also an option
Are you could bring back old contests like the Halloween one?
I think that if big contest like VLDC needs more planning and time, small contests would be great to amuse the community.

Hey! Check it my crazy new website here! :3

Welcome to the Abyss!
The Event Calendar you see there doesn't have the whole year planned out in advance. As the months go by we'll be planning more things and adding them to the calendar. Smaller contests are always good to have because they can be handled in much less time than the big site contests, but we don't usually plan them too far in advance so it's hard to predict when they'll be on there for the year.

Perhaps this (or an abbreviated version) should be added to the initial post? I mean, it should be obvious, that not everything is planned in advance, but for some newbies it would be good, to make it clear directly, that the event calendar isn't final?


Whatever, i'm curious what events will be eventually held.

--------------------
That's a very good idea, actually. I'll slap something in the OP about that.

+1 for me. Maybe also the 12 Days before Christmas contest would be good to bring back too.

Are you an ASM coder and want a boost on your Steam, Switch, PS4, or Xbox One accounts? Private Message me for details.
(I also offer SMW Custom Songs in exchange for ASM! I don't do ports though unless it's to remix.)

Want progress on 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Go here to see.

Are you a sample porter and wanna help with 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Private Message me or Mellonpizza for details. Expect trading or boosting in exchange. 6 more left.

Im also in favor of the 12 Days before Christmas contest, even though I never participated in it before. Would be interesting to see various level themes be posted to make.

--------------------
On Pixel Art Requests: I generally do not accept free work unless I either have the time, if I see your project worth my time to contribute towards, and that is usually me doing the approaching to you on that second part. I do not accept speculative work as I do have various art I made on-hand with me. I am more receptive to paid work and equivalent exchange of resources (trades) in which case, you can DM me wherever I have an active presence on for the details and we can work something out. If not, then don't DM unless absolutely necessary.



How about an Automatic Level Design Contest? The last one was 2016, I think

If all are small and good SMW contests, I'm in to join anyone!! But tbh, I would prefer more a HLDC, man, I love halloween and how it's dark and good. (I already told that what motivated me most to start hacking SMW was an scary entry?)
I'm definitely open to the idea of another Automatic Level Design contest. Obviously since I'm fairly new to public relations shiz on this site it would be my first one, but they looked super fun when I watched the entries!

the plan was for bldc, yes. however, since we didn't hear anything from vitor about how lunar magic 3.00 would change hacking / create incompatibilities / what not, we do not have time to properly plan this february event in the same capacity as is listed on the 2019 event calendar. i'm sorry for this, but we were left in the dark and it's been really hectic for us to sort things out. this may result in things being pushed back quite a bit further, it might not.

i'll release a statement january 1st about all the changes this will have on the events for 2019, so until then just be patient, thanks.
When VLDC11 gets confirmed, I'll be extremely happy since I couldn't finish my entry for VLDCX in time and I'm impatiently waiting for the next one. Though I'm curious about BLDC, what this abbreviation means and whether it's like VLDC, but some custom resources are added to base ROM.
Any reason as to why 7 Up has different logos in USA and the rest of the world?
VLDC11 with Lunar Magic 3.0 will be epic, but will be unnecessary to add complex patches and OW sprites.
Only to make the event like the VLDC7 would be better.
SMWCentral won't repeat the same mistake from VLDCX.

Anyone agrees?
I said this before and I stand by it more than ever: I think VLDC is a brand that needs to retire. Now definitions of vanilla are even more discussable, and I'd be more than happy to honestly just not have any need to classify something as vanilla or not in the first place.
If we are to have something like VLDC (no custom resources contest), I think we should at the very least rename it.
Mostly a semantics concern but yeah.
As long as OLDC repeats in 2019 I'll be happy. VLDC is too far from being Vanilla.
