  I believe 'trust' is a big word and is gained over time and it is really not a matter of some impersonnal exchange of e-mails. However, CD has gained the benefit of the doubt at least from my part and therefore would also like to welcome him on this small community. I have to agree with PA however, that 13yrs is just too young for what you represent and there is a skepticism (not disbelief but skepticism). Should this be the case however, mark my words when i say, you will npt stay too long here as I expect NASA to find you and recruit you....hehe. I am kidding and I do apologize for the humor CD. I have also read ur comments and to be honest most of them are convincing. Keep it rolling and let's c where that take us.
As for the real Trusted Member honour all I can say is Welcome and Use it wisely. No offense CD, you may be the best and most talented, skillful, remarkable, etc person ever, but I am 100% against this decision to smn who is only a member for 2 days. On a personal level it is amazing and WTG CD but on the community end I am disappointed. I believe a little more time was all we needed to really trust CD and then give a very diservable honour. It is quite unfair, after all, to players like LMR, GIS, JOE, etc who have been active and are all willing to contribute - maybe not with 800 lvls within a few weeks - but with their ongoing work and effort. We have reached a level that u bcome a Trusted Member bfore actually being consider a Member. I may have crossed the line here but had to say things exactly how I feel them.

  Dang! Congrats on becoming trusted after just a few days! xP

  CamoDragoon made a new record here by getting trusted in a game in just 2 days. Congratulations =]

...yeh, I guess I don't have to give any reasons for that decision.

  CD, I am confirming to all that I have read all the comments. Thanks for the explanation. No offense, but I cant believe you're 13 years old (lol). And just one more question: How come I discovered your name? I dont understand ... O_o

  In that case I guess I will keep uploading then.

EDIT: I think Elizea's theory is correct, just uploaded Junction and Thin Transfer at the same time and it wouldn't let me.

  So many new levels, where do I going to find the time for it. XD
Elizea 8 years ago
  CamoDragoon, you don't have any message or BB-uploading privileges. There is no message limit for new members.

About the level uploading thing, I guess the New Member limitation works so that if the level you made gets accepted, it allows you to upload more, but only one can be unevaluated at the time (if it won't take over that one day of course), or at least that is my theory. I can't find any other explanation.

Don't you guys really remember the times I was an admin? As I was already fast in evaluating back then. I was just interested of CamoDragoons levels (and surprised how he can upload them).

800 kids/easy levels doesn't sound that much to me if you remember the fact that they were created in a year (that's about 3 levels each day). But as you said you also made 150 JG2 levels... yah.

Yeh, I actually tried to remove the New member limitation by limiting you to 0 level uploads each week and then delimit but it didn't work. I guess JP could remove the limitation, you can try PMing him =]. It is not meant for people like you anyways^^

  I love the way each of you guys can see different ways to solve lvls., and challenge me to think out of the box I was in. Especially, on my lvls where I have a concept and solution already. Thx.

  Thank you for the explanation CD.I want you to feel assured that neither PA or myself hold any ill feelings against you or any player. And I would like to welcome you officially to Blockoban. And hope that you continue to become a welcome asset to the game. As a BlockoBan family We all respect the purity and competition of this game, and really want to keep it that way. That's why we may have seemed a little overzealous in finding out you were. None of us want this game to become contaminated like the majority of the Internet is. This is a refuge and our home away from home. And we are proud to protect our territory.
I'm sure that you will make many new friends, myself included, now that you're an official member. And I'm looking forward to working with you and seeing your submissions in the future. So keep up the good work.

  Ahh, I see why oldmtnguy has his name like that now. xD
Ahroo 8 years ago
  Well, there are four categories (Kids, Easy, Normal, Hard), that might be why. :/

  Well, Elizea is technically the Demigod of BL, he has a tendency to pity everyone that doesn't have "Legend" status (like Me, Gameinsky, allyally, etc.)

Oh, and I'm smarter than the sophomores in math, and I'm somehow the smartest freshman. O_o

  WOW, didn't notice all this exchange of posts and I have to confess I didn't go that far. The only thing that crossed my mind (and i think i wrote it) was that I usually hold a small basket when it comes to words. I prefer actions even if it means I have to admit my initial skepticism. I consider myself a BB freak and I have been an active member for 9months and before that I was also playing BB as guest for a year. I can only say that 800lvls is very difficult to create and it may take 4-5 yrs to do that. Having said that I am still amazed by the fact that CD is (or claims to be) 13yrs old and I ought to give the benefit of the doubt.

In my opinion his only statement that I want to be true is his age. If this is the only truth the I can forgive and forget without being offended almost everything. If everything is true then we may have found the young triple B [BBB or Beethoven of BB]. I have to admit that the first signs are very promising and I hope it comes from a true work.

I am more pleased though to finally see PA not only back for real but in a mood to participate and intervene in our community's work. A warm welcome buddy as I expect a cold winter...hehe

  @CD: concerning edit1: You can't see what difficulty a level has from the level's info to the right. You have to go to the menu above this message where you see the first 12 official levels. Above that again you see a red "SELECT"-tab. Press that! Then you can see ALL the levels in this game. If you hold the mouse-cursor over a certain level, you will see info about it. Or else you can see a small "c" right above the number of stars a certain level has got. The colour of that "c" indicates the difficulty. Blue=kids, black=easy, red=medium and green=hard.
Two lines below the "SELECT"-tab, you can see the "UNPLAYED"-tab. By pressing this you will only see the levels you haven't scored on yet.
Understand?

  A Dragoon is a Mounted soldier. So what is a camouflaged Dragoon?
pauloalex 8 years ago
  Is not ruled out the possibility that Joe is a super-gifted kid (lol), But in my opinion, this possibility is remote. Why did he not tell us the truth? Please, CD, tell us who you are!
oldmtnguy 8 years ago
  Yes that was what I was concerned about Paul. All the messages and postings seem to be far above and mature for a boy of 13 years of age. As do the difficulty and quality of the levels. If this is true, then hats off to CamoDragoon, because I am very impressed. But if that is not the case, then we should be offended because it is not in the true spirit of the game, if someone trying to pull something over on us. Also 30 messages in less than two days?
pauloalex 8 years ago
  I had not thought about it, Jim. Why do so at one of CD's posted, adopted shortly after Elizea? And to be honest, the level of CD not seem to be created by a boy of 13 years old. Does the true identity of CD is "E..."? =]
oldmtnguy 8 years ago
  Greetings CamoDragoon. As an administrator, like PA I am also concerned, who are you. You claim to have over 800 levels to post, your profile posts you at 13 years old. How did you get cleared as a new member to post five accepted levels in one day. It seems as soon as you post a level Elizea approves it within a few minutes.

@ Elizea. Is this approved or is this a hack with a fake ID.
CamoDragoon 8 years ago
  Ok, edit2 cleared up but can someone anwser edit1?
pauloalex 8 years ago
  ok. welcome to BLockoban.
Elizea 8 years ago
  He has been here without an account for over a year, and now made an account and is posting the levels he had made =].
pauloalex 8 years ago
  Hey CD. Who are you? You're a experient player who is using another nick? Indeed, their levels are not amateurs. What is your true identity? =]
MartinfraKongsberg 8 years ago
  I doesn't DO anything, it's just a way to sort levels and you have to choose one to get it evaluated. One benefit is that you then can select to just play easy levels if you want. And it's kind of a "warning" to other players if you select hard. And people rate the levels partly based on which category they're in.
It has nothing to do with official or not. Officials are both kids, easy, medium and hard. jp chooses which levels that becomes official.
CamoDragoon 8 years ago
  @Martin:I know, but when I play Blockoban, I don't see any impact choosing the category made. My question is what it "does" when you choose the category. Is it just for if it becomes official or something?

Edit: Thanks Martin, clarified everything except (sorry if I'm frustrating you) how you see a level's difficulty. Meaning, I don't know if I'm playing a level what difficulty it is (other than scores and common sense) and I don't know how to pick levels of a certain difficulty.

EDIT2: Why don't I have the level designer achievement? Also, my ranking in blockoban doesn't appear on my profle page either.
MartinfraKongsberg 8 years ago
  @CD: When you create a level, you can choose the category by pressing on one of the red arrows on either side of "ALL CATEGORIES"!

  if I had 1 more point my score would be 1337 :3
(I know I suck i'm not a BB player normally)
CamoDragoon 8 years ago
  AK, that time was literal; i cant log on again until then. Also, does anyone know what choosing the difficulty for a level does? Is there a categories area for all levels or does it appear somewhere on the level?

  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.
