So I'm just wondering, when will the results be posted?
When we've finished judging. Not necessarily sure how long judging will take since I don't have a good reference to compare this one to, unlike any of the level design contests. We'll do our best to get them out to you guys in a timely manner regardless.
Apologies for the major lack of updates on this. I'll try to keep this quick and sweet. Two things have been keeping me from being active recently: internet and work.
Parents couldn't afford internet anymore sometime in late June so I've been living on phone data and wifi hotspots since then. After nearly two months though, I finally have a stable source of internet in my house again. Along with that, I've been working over 40 hours a week consistently which unfortunately has left me with little time and energy. Thankfully my last day of work is the 21st of this month, so that isn't much of an issue anymore. Hopefully that explains my absence a bit without sounding too whiny.
Now onto a progress report. As of right now:
- Bebn is done judging!
- Major Flare is done judging!
- Scrydan is about halfway through the entries.
- I (Veck) am currently 16 entries in.
Scrydan has been in a similar situation as me with real life factors taking up a majority of his focus. Thankfully, things are also settling down with him too now, so if things continue on this path then we should both be done with judging shortly. We judges appreciate your patience with us on this. If there are any further questions, please don't hesitate to let us know in this thread.
I never did expect to move into a new house so soon. Moving and also getting internet setup properly (some server related things) and some irl personal events taken a lot of time. Lately it has mostly cooled down.
I can't speak for Veck, but if I could guess the time I should be mostly done is around either next week or so. Can't promise specific time with all the moving but it is my primary staff focus right now.
I want to make sure the scores are done properly with no mistakes since this is my first time. I hope you all can understand.
Life has been rather increasingly stressful and so much going on. I've already told the staff now but I am taking a week off because I really need to destress some and also do some things around the house. Get some furniture and organize stuff.
My judging is getting closer to being done, but with my last entries I don't want my stress to effect the judging in any way. It isn't the ideal time window, but you all still deserve to know too. Apologies for this delay. I want to do more for the site, but at this point in time I definitely need a few days where I don't worry or think about anything.
And I've finished my judging! Sincere apologies for just how long it actually took me to finish, but I didn't realize just how much life would get in the way of just about everything when I first started out. Believe it or not, I actually feel like I've learned quite a lot having just gone through all these overworlds. That includes new techniques I didn't realize were even possible, and just how much room there is for custom resources in more recent versions of Lunar Magic.
My judging is getting close, but due to the unfortunate breakdown of my AC unit, the past days have gone without any progress due to the fact my computer would likely overheat due to the really hot temperature in the house.
I can't give an exact date yet but it is still my priority when I have time for the site. Gotta love when life throws one thing after another. At this point I'd love to be done and rush, but that's the last thing I want to do. So a little more patience will be needed. Thanks!
