  Yes, my dear friend boogiebee. Old levels deserve comment if you improve the score, for example.

  Re:"Productive comments" Pauloalex. I agree Paulo it's disappointing to view a comment and not find a better score or some 'challenge' being posted. A level that has been in existence for months, has hundreds of plays need not be 'flamed'.

  sorry gameinsky, but you just check the messages posted by him. It is not a criticism, it is my opinion.

  In my opinion, Jyxz, you are a spammer. I have 136 comments since dec 20 2008, and you have 145 comments since jun 30 2009. Why you not did productive comments? Ps. I'm not offending you, I'm just giving my opinion. Nevertheless, I admire you, because it is not easy to complete all official levels.

  A 4500000 moves level is impossible to make IMO besides if you continual do the same moves to solve a level...
Im 10 years ago
  Or 4500000 moves...
Jyxz 10 years ago
  Haha, ironically I actually don't see any I would reject, I think as long as a level is solvable it should be accepted because hey whats wrong with having more levels, but at the same time there are OCD people out there like me who want to solve every level, so if you make a puzzle which has 600 move solution and not once do you have to use your mind to solve it, yes I will reject it, even if it looks like the mona lisa.
Also there is a difference in being a critic and an admin... as a critic I just give my honest opinion in the hope it will be used to improve the overall quality of the game.. being and admin means I have to be fair consider what the community wants in new levels etc. etc. as much as I pretend not to notice that most people who play this game prefer easy levels for a quick snip of fun while they wait around for a bit, completing a lot of levels over time, I realize that is in fact the case... but I also consider the fact the people really interested in the game should have opinions that are heavily weighted too. In short I know how to be fair.

Edit: I also understand the low score factor it is a different game, to me its about solving them not going for the low score... but I understand SOME levels are really only able to be enjoyed when your going for score, which is reasonable, but going for score on a level with 600 move solution is like cleaning paint off glass...

  Jyxz, if you were admin half of my levels wouldnt probably be accepted, as they arent hard as i can complete them and the fun is in getting low score usually. And you dont find that fun so they would get rejected probably =P
Jyxz 10 years ago
  Id be an admin if the position was available to me.

edit: tho i care a lot more for hard levels then when people are drawing pictures with the blocks, (when a level combines both it makes a great level, but just a huge picture doesn't really appeal to me.)

  Well i guess admins can have some humor too :))
boogiebee 10 years ago
  I am also of the opinion that more administrators would definitely help in clearing what seems to be a backlog of constructed levels, however of the several players that may be capable, either none have volunteered or for some reason they were not employed. It's a thankless job for the most part and right now Asforien is carrying all the baggage. :)
I wouldn't dare try it. Would you care to volunteer?
Jyxz 10 years ago
  Yeah I just dont see the harm in having more admins to be honest... and I think commentating on levels is very important, gotta get more of the good stuff, and no more move the red block to the right the blue block up, YOU WON! As for experience boogie what do you mean?? I've solved almost every level... (many before I even made my account so they arent counted but still over 300 since then)
Elizea 10 years ago
  yup, jyxz comments all the levels he tries =) which is a good thing imo, as far as he remembers that levels asking a level to be changed after one year of the creating of that level is just stupid =P but im happy, atleast someone comments my levels
1jase 10 years ago
  400th comment :)

and yes we do need a new admin
boogiebee 10 years ago
  Hello Elizea, I wasn't serious about the admin job. I was just taking a jab at him for generating so many senseless comments. More than 600 players over the past one or two years have generated 46 pages of comments and our friend Jyxz has produced 13 pages , now that is really GOOD ! =-D

@ 1jase, thats good 1jase, I like your sense of humor! :) (I have a wry sense of humor myself!)
Elizea 10 years ago
  boogiebee, i think he would just wants his levels accepted faster, or more new levels...
boogiebee 10 years ago
  If you are bucking for an administrators position you might address JP, the game creator. Looking at the archives, I see that you have about 13 pages of critiques since you began on June 30 , now that is a lot of experience, however I don't think you can even get experience points for that.!!!!!!!!

  Just curious, why are there only 2 admins, is it possible we get some more?
Jyxz 10 years ago
  First off you have some good levels, but what I'm saying is 1) you can be 100% sure if u dont solve it yourself, 2) levels like that arent some trick or some higher brain power to solve they are bullcrap, just keep moving the pieces till you get lucky and you see your goal closer in sight, I know there is talk its like a rubiks cube, ive solved the 3by3 4by4 and the 5by5 WITHOUT looking up solutions in a book or the interent, and its not like them to me at all, (quadroople transfer is pretty cool overall but what about levels like "Passion" its just too much.
Elizea 10 years ago
  Atleast in my opinion, when creator can be 100% sure the level is possible, it should be enought. Someone can be good designing levels but bad in completeing. I keep always sure i can do my levels (thats why they are so easy) but as the Quadriple transfer was possible, hard and great, i think its a good level, even jac1 cant complete it.
Jyxz 10 years ago
  Actually yes, I dont really think it should be official, maybe its just too hard for me but to be honest I just got lucky with the solution, (3 moves from finish I saw the solution but up to that it was just moving them relatively blindly.) I mean it is a cool level the concept is nice etc. but I think lot a lot of the levels where they are all attached its a tad bit too hard. Archery is a hard level but to get the solution I had to use my head every step of the way, think about how to do it backwards, lots of little tricks, just overall its a really great level.

edit And I definitely love a challenge, but the best ones come from people who have solved their levels... the levels that are just a whole bunch of blocks attached are ok if they have another part of the puzzle with a trick, but if the creator hasnt solved them the challenge isnt solving the puzzle its to keep up the busy work
Elizea 10 years ago
  you mean our 2nd last official shouldnt be official then? o_O thats why we have admins that keep sure levels are possible, and then we have those ultimate players too that are always up for a little challenge =)
Jyxz 10 years ago
  I think any level that the creator hasnt been able to create should be moved to a different category and shouldnt count as accepted or offiicial.

16 official levels now. All levels are great. I must say I'm a big fan of Psychotronic's levels (thx Psycho). When a level is "only" accepted, it doesn't mean it will not be official one day, it's just I'm not sure for now.
