It's sad that people only can submit one level, but there are 5 weeks left to do something with all those blocks and items :)

Yes. And if your character gets more than 5 dragon coins, he/she will gain more than 1 live (2 lives, 3 lives, until 5 lives).

There are many other alternatives to mediafire, as listed in the submission topic, namely dropbox, google drive or (provided the file is small enough, which it likely should be) discord.

There is no scenario in which you would have to use mediafire, but it isn't strictly forbidden (just heavily looked down upon, because it can generally be unsafe to download from).

Question:

If you have already finished your level, can you still ask people to playtest it? Just curious.

You are allowed to get playtesting for your level at any point during the submission period, and you are allowed to update the level if you got it playtested after submitting it
Question:
Can you use MEGA?

Listen, everyone's allowed to ask as many questions as they want, but this question was literally answered in the post right above yours, please try to only ask questions which haven't been answered already.

But, yes, you are allowed to show your level to other people before it is done.

Fyi, in vanilla contests, you need to only use the stuff that is in the editor, the only custom thing you can use is custom music.

The original post:
The term "Vanilla" means using only out-of-the-box assets when making your level. For the purposes of this contest, this means that you may not use any custom graphics, txt files, lua scripts or sound effect overrides. The ONLY CUSTOM THING you are allowed to use is custom music, because as good as Fleet Gilde is as a song, it might not do well at getting the mood of your level across.

The submissions topic's original post
If I notice any non-music custom assets they will be mercilessly stripped from the folder before the levels are sent to the judges.

The rules are fairly clear in this regard. You can do everything you can do from the editor, with the exception of things that aren't "in the spirit of vanilla". So, no graf/crate-scripting. But for Klonoa, there is a character block which is about as accessible as the character block for luigi, or a question mark block for that matter. Neither of those two are banned, so Klonoa's isn't, either.

Questions:
1. Is there a limit to the number of music paths?
2. If a level has lag issues, is it disqualified?
