Chat's been buzzing with talk about the 72hr and some people think how we do it sucks, and maybe it does suck, post your hot opinions in here. Some things to consider: Judging We have close to 70 entries in this most recent contest, that's a lot! Nobody likes testing that many maps, and although we have a preliminary round of voting set up to help whittle down the entries, we're still going to be testing the same versions of the same maps for 2 months or so. Do you think the process of thinning out entries should be more rigorous? Should we allow authors to release new versions of 72hr maps while their entry is being considered for the contest? Prizes Some people in chat have also brought up the idea that this contest shouldn't be a contest at all, and should be more of a personal challenge for the authors, this would entirely eliminate winners, prizes, and the voting process. Do you think the 72hr needs a competitive aspect as motivation? Do you think if we removed the competitive aspect that it would affect the number of participants? Let us know what you think, and if you can think of anything else that would improve future 72hr contests, let us know that too. We can't change the process of the contest that's already running, but we can probably do better next time.
