    Alright, late June, early july.

    Could you non-americans (well, americans too) give me a date when you are done/free?

    What MONTH is the best one for this contest to occur?
    May to September works for me.

    Do you want to restrict it to a certain gamemode
    Nah, let people be creative.

    Would you want to use rules from the previous contest?
    Previous contest rules are fine.

    Would you be interested in Streaming your work?
    Probably, not sure how long each day, I'd see closer to the date.

    As an added point, if we have a "hub" for the livestreamers, can we also have on that page a twitter widget to display tweets tagged with #72hrmap or something.

    If we can code it to do so, yes.

    Twitter widgets are a piece of cake. Unless there's some significant complication in adding them to a webpage that also has livestream that i don't know about, it's literally copypasta.

    I'll be on break from college, so Thurs-> Sat or Friday -> Sunday won't matter much to me. Maybe Thursday through Sat might be nicer, cause then I can still go out drinking late Saturday night. :p

    And I'm pretty much good May 15th on until around late August.

    Looking forward to this.

    How is something like July 5-7 or July 6-8th for people? I could probably do it a week after that too. Or, do you want something like 27-29 of June? I'm avoiding going over 4th of July for the americans like to picnic that day.

    EDIT: Added a poll.

    What MONTH is the best one for this contest to occur? idc, they're all the same to me. i'd only prefer this to happen over a weekend as i plan to have a fulltime job so starting thursday is bad for me.
    Do you want to restrict it to a certain gamemode (ie, all KoTH or All 5CP) no
    nonononono
    no
    Would you want to use rules from the previous contest? (seen below)
    old rules were fine.
    Would you be interested in Streaming your work? (If yes, how long per day?) i dont think so. with a timelimit this tight, people should be mapping not watching anyway :p
    What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar? i'd attempt a no-hands cartwheel

    I'd say start on a Friday and end on a Sunday. Early July might be fun: could theme it around the Fourth.

    No real preferences on game mode except that I'd vote against 5CP for a 72hr.

    I'd grade more papers for a Klondike bar!

    What MONTH is the best one for this contest to occur?
    July (not late like the last week)
    Do you want to restrict it to a certain gamemode (ie, all KoTH or All 5CP)
    3CP
    Would you want to use rules from the previous contest? (seen below)
    Yes
    If not, what rules would you suggest?
    Would you be interested in Streaming your work? (If yes, how long per day?)
    Only if some people could watch, if so, I would recommend about 6/7 hours a day I can do best.
    What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar?
    Be trapped in a jail for 24 hours
