The wording for some of the rules is weird and I don't really like the judging rubric so I won't be judging this or entering a level. The topic itself isn't put together in an intuitive way and you overcomplicated the submission process making it harder to understand imo. Also, you refer to it as an official contest, but it's not. Your rules also might also want to say what happens if you break them and you might want to not post them in caps as it is sort of off-putting I'd take a look at the SCC's OP and consider not copying it, but keeping in mind the cohesive of well-encompassing manner in which it is written

1) I tried to word the rules as clearly as possible
2) The judging rubric is what i consider every time i play a level
3) Ok, i respect your desition to not join
4) I tried to make sure if someone was making a level to the contest for the first time they would know what to do
5) ok, got rid of the "offical"
6) Got rid of the caps
7)ok, ill rewrite the rules
no

Your rubric is not great imo, especially the wording within it of things like: "How does your level feel like a level". There's no mention of aesthetics and the rubric itself does not emphasize important aspects of what should be in a good level and the equal distribution between all four aspects is not good imo, as there should be more weight on design, as an example. In terms of submitting levels, most contests don't require you to state where you got your graphics from and most times people when posting their levels in the Levels forum don't do so either; it's unnecessary as long as people aren't claiming then as their own. There's also no reason for people to put their username and Instagram (honestly, what?) in a read-me as they'll just be DM/PMing it to you anyway and you'll just have to remove all of them before giving it to the judges

I have never done a contest nor do I have any interest to do so but I noticed that there seems to be a lot of contests and maybe that is part of the problem. People only have so much free time and with another contest that seems to be ongoing people just may not have the time to participate in this one. I would not give up. Just give it some time and then try the contest again. If you do not succeed the first time keep trying and eventually your patience may pay off. If your contest does not work out just remember at least you tried. You never know until you try. For those that were interested in participating in your contest, you could still maybe do something with them.

I really don't care about winning recognition for a level of mine in a contest and if i'm going to make a great level I prefer to save it for my project but then that is just me. Others have stated the rules were hard to follow so if you do try again in the future maybe work on the rules or maybe people are just being picky.

Whatever happens just enjoy the great game of Mario and keep on smiling.
I want to say thank you to God for every day he gives me on this planet and for the chance to be in a better place when I die.

11 days til December 31st. You said the deadline was January 31st. I may submit if it is the 31st of January.

About the rubric. The Design catagory is not described correctly, and there is no Asthetical portion. (Graphics and music.) Their should also be out of 10 or 100, not 60. I like the rubric, but not enough. Also, some things should not be weighted equal.

tbh, the deadline on this contest is too far away, so that's actually one of the reasons that it may be that people forgot/don't care about this contest.

I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. If you do, put this in your signature.
