  Shiro isn't just S yet? How long do we have to wait to see him joining the J and G club? =]

  If Muhammad don't go to the mountain, the mountain will go to Muhammad (Greek expression J).Meaning, that if official lvls have reached their limit size and therefore scores -linked to official lvls - are capped we could try to have another set of scores which include all accepted lvls. Personally, I believe it is worth the trouble but that's just me and Shiro (and G) Let's just c what happens J.

  Not a bad idea, TM. I'm trying to be a better BB player. 118 officials left for me

1200th comment btw

  Thnx Shiro for the offer. Can't we just co-edit a pack so we share time and hustle?
Shiro 9 years ago
  ToughMan, if it becomes too boring for you (BB got nearly 2000 levels) just send me a PM and I'll do it ^^!

  I put this on the table for JP. It would be nice to have new tab on the BB page for the Global Score. I would also suggest admins when accepting a level - if possible - to just add it on the pack. I know it is a bit more work but that way we will be certain that nothing will be missing. As for the editing issue? Are there any ideas how we can include/invite other editors to add levels? Since we are a global community smn can take my turn when I sleep....hehe

  The Score will be visible in the Scoreboard of the Pack

So, You can't see the global score from here, Only from your pack. But I can tell you that every BB fans will plays it. At least you can count on me ;)
ToughMan 9 years ago
  Oh. Thnx G but what about the Global Score? Will this be visible on the Scoreboard in this page (under tab Scores) or just when smn plays the pack? Again it defeats the purpose if it is hidden? My idea was to have an official scoreboard (cannot erase it) but also have another tab for global scoreboard. What do you think?

Ok. I have already started but I don't know how long it will take me (maybe 1-2weeks). I will be adding levels each day so bear with me admins and players. As i'm not sure how this works - on the acceptance level of the pack - I suggest ignoring it until it is completed. I have included a small reminder (on the comment section) for my information and when i'm through i will delete it and let you know to accept it. I would also like to include other editors to feel free and add on the pack but not sure how to do it. Any ideas? Btw, I named the pack 'Global BB Tournament'. Unless you have other suggestions I'll stick with that.

  All the answers are yes

You can edit this pack anywhen but an admin must put it "To be edited"
ToughMan 9 years ago
  Thnx Shiro...will try it on a smaller size just to get the idea (and c how long it will take me) and if things go well (don't count on it) i'm gonna try the long way......zzzzzzZZZZZZZ.

Just to make sure I don't do anything in vain. Will this pack with all levels - if created by myself - be able to include a Global Score because that's the only reason I'm gonna do it...not for my self Plus, will we be able to add further levels once they are accepted...or do we have to start from scratch each time and create a new pack? If the answer is NO to any of the above questions I don't think its worth the effort and the sweat. Don't you think?

  Okay, let me try to explain it in steps ^_^.

1) Go to ''[Create a level pack]''
2) Make a fitting title & description, a Thumbnail may look messy so you don't have to do anything about that unless you really want another thumbnail.
3) Then go the the box ''Level Title'' and simply add every level you see in the accepted tab.

Hope this will help you and Good Luck! :-)

  I have no idea how, but can definitely give it a shot if instructed.
Shiro 9 years ago
  @ToughMan, hehe, GL adding all levels, Jump Gear 2 had nearly 2500 and it took me 3 full days :-).
GL on it tho, if you want to do it ^^!

Would you like me to do it :-)?

  hey great "composers" what's up with Blue X ?????????????????
ToughMan 9 years ago
  Of course I don't mind and I hope it is helpful. As for the Global score, your idea sounds great. However a similar pack (updated lets say) must be created every xxx levels (i.e. each time 100 or 200 more levels are accepted). As i don't know how easy or difficult this is, I leave it up to you to decide.I trust you'll do your best. Thnx for the response JP.
jp 9 years ago
  @ToughMan, about the global score, we could make a pack that contains ALL levels, like Shiro made for Jump Gear 2.
I will add a piece of your message about the admin role into the FAQ if you don't mind, that was so true.

  Like gameinsky said, Kudos to all you guys for making BB a really fun place again. Quite amazing considering that BB was totally dead for about 6 months or more with no activity at all about a year ago. People were even saying that there were really no ideas left and the game was pretty much played out. You guys have proved that notion wrong about 10 times over.
ToughMan 9 years ago
  For me EL, admins are more than just evaluating. Evaluation is only a small part of your duties (probably the most time consuming). IMO, the most significant part is to assist players, motivate new ones, assist designers, resolve conflicts, answer to questions and listen to opinions. The ultimate goal is not only preserve the high quality of the game and the community's but improve it with fresh new ideas. Speaking of which we need to have a Global Score that is apart from the official ones, to include accepted levels as well. Since, as you've mentioned, official lvls have almost reached their limit, in terms of amount, the new challenge would be to keep records of the global scores separately from the official one. Let me also remind you that designers are ranked on all levels and therefore a similar approach should be at least available to other lvls. That for now...let me go back to my designing room...hehe
Elizea 9 years ago
  Haha, Toughman, but that is no problem here. I just simply want to do some other things more, and not be on my toes whole the time 'what if there are levels to evaluate', as there are people who really strongly stand against admins if they don't do their 'job', evaluating.

Well I'll try to 'teach' all I can now to OMG and let him find the touch to this job. I hope he will do it better than I did (as I have always been a bit lazy on those purple levels).

  Gameinsky, You got a point

Everyone here on BB are very nice persons

I really have to thanks you ^^
gameinsky 9 years ago
  Kudos to all you blockoban players, this seems to be the only fun corner of BL left over, the rest of BL is left deserted an/or changed into hate, kudos to all of you!
You are admirable.
ToughMan 9 years ago
  Well EL, since you were the only (almost always) available admin, everything passed from your hands and we, the demanding ones, were only asking things from you and never tried to step into your shoes. No understanding was shown (at least from my part. I admit it). I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to your work EL and I am sure OMG will step up to his new responsibilites. I count on you guys. As for the rejection OMG I am sure we will be treated just like any other member. I always admired equal treatment and I'm positive you share that too. Again GL pal.

  How well you is not smart to solve them, OMG? You make extremely hard levels, and certainly can solve our levels. Congratulations on the job again.
oldmtnguy 9 years ago
  Thanks you guys for your kind comments and support [I HOPE]. I am more than happy to accept the challenge of being an Admin. Elizea, maybe you can catch a little break now and then. I am retired so availability is not a concern. Being a part of BB has given me the opportunity to stay alert mentally and to continue to contribute. I feel that it is very important to keep up the standards that you all have set for BB and I will try to coach new designers and members, as they show up. I am always open for suggestions or criticism [maybe] hehe. And ToughMan, don't worry, I won't reject yours, pauloalex's, or murat's levels just because they are too hard, and I'm not smart enough to solve them.=]

  there doesn't seem to be many south american players, and even less known ones.
We only know bruno_heey and you, paulo.

  sound on / off added (burfy's feedback).
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.
