  Hi Mo! Not seen you at all really! How about some of us could make a few levels to encourage and entice the younger designers to use some new techniques and tricks they learn. That is why I have good levels.

@Jos: I definately agree OMG does a great job of doing that when a level is rejected. He explains why it is that way and what you could've done better.

  I just wanted to add some encouragement for all you guys, even though I don't have the time with family and work commitments to get on as much or create levels as before. If I may speak for some of the older players here, we are really proud to see so many extremely bright young people creating, sharing ideas and engaging their brains. It gives me hope for the future!

Also, remember that there are always going to be a few negative people wherever you go, in real life and especially online where greifers can hide behind their anonymity. No one who counts will think any less of you if you just ignore them completely since they really are not worth your time to reply or argue with them. Stay positive and just have fun!

  About the discussion, I want to say the next thing: you can give positive and negative comments as much as you want, but only if you think about the age of the editor, you express a negative comment as carefully as possible and if you are constructive, or better sad: if you give alternatives.

  Exactly GIS, Exactly. Us Kids are minors in the real world but shouldn't be insulted either!

  Lol Jos, blockoban is THE place to get inspiration from in bonuslevel xD
Oh and welcome back !
oh also, just to let you know, the average age of BL admins is 17!
(if you exclude OMG, 16)(this is the expected average, I'll calculate the real average)
[edit] after calculations the number seems a bit higher: 23 (20 without counting OMG)

Infact I'm not whining, you feel like it is whining, but I wasn't whining. I was just saying that people would appreciate it more if you could say it on a friendly tone :). But I'll leave that as your decision. But IMO you should respect everyone, and not look down upon someone because he is not yet an adult.

  OMG! I'm 3 days away and in the meantime you've wrote a novel.

  @Magnacumlaud: Look, what lmr's trying to say is that is quite hard to create levels to your expectations, Camodragoon is only a teenager and I'm only 11 and have seen negative comments from you. Basically, if you have nothing nice to say don't say it. No-one is forcing you to do anything. We're just making a point.

edit: @MCD: I'm not whining at all no-one should have a right to call someone by that way like that. I have never been pestering OMG and you can take that from me. Don't waste your time by arguing with me.

  @lmr what do u think about: that I have Rank 24 in Blockoban! I have no interest 2 create levels and nobody can force me to do that! It is my only and private decision!

@OMG I only react on disrespectful comments by this "bunch of whining youngsters" as lmr called them. Maybe u will consider this or is this allowed to do??
And what I also want to say: I have never ever rated a level down, I only told my feeling about AK's "Obscurity" like MatthijsM has done too. In this cases I rate a level especially in the last time: Simon's (who was never a whining youngster), Chris, Camu's and Murat's level I gave always the highest rate which is possible. And my thanks explicit go to all the designers for their exciting and challenching levels!

And to all who r obviously so interested in: don't worry about my age ;).

edit: @manufan I'm not interested in "advices" of "whining youngsters" so take it by yourself!!!
lmr 8 years ago
  I have not yet optimized "Obscurity" in part because it is not my most challenging kind of level.(Even though I make levels of a similar style sometimes) My work commitments have not given me the time to play as much as I would like too.
It upsets me to see OMG being stressed by people not being mature enough to know how this game works. He works hard as an administrator!!! He does not need a bunch of whining youngsters.
Magma, though you use use a name of a highly educated person, I feel it is just an aspiration on your part. I don't think you have the right to be so critical of those who take the time and mental capacity to create levels. You have never created a level nor have I ever seen you achieve anything near the optimum score for any level. Since you have not filled your profile with all pertainent information I can only guess that you yet another young,immature teenager. Eventually you will grow up. As my parenrs always said.' Unless you have something good to say, say nothing.' I will qualify that by saying that it is good to offer constructive critisism when it comes from experience.
Every one of you out there who thinks you can diss a level, who can only accept the tyoe you like, who thinks they should be given more privledges grow up.
This is the best game out there. DO NOT ruin it.

  Thanks to everyone for their comments on the level Obscurity. What we need to realize is that we are a community and need to support each other whenever possible. Constructive criticism in itself can be supportive but negative remarks always tend to foster bad feelings. Ultimately we have to rely on each other to provide the levels to play and if no one feels good enough about their work to submit a level then there will be nothing left to play. It takes all types of levels to satisfy everyone's needs. There are certain styles of levels that I choose not to spend extra time on because I don't enjoy them as much but I do appreciate every level that is submitted. Granted our rating system is not ideal but it is the best that we have for now and so I'm asking you to please use our rating system to give positive support to the community. Please remember that obscene comments or cyber bullying will not be permitted.

  Welcome Back Paulo! I've heard great things about you! :)

I want to get as high as I can on designers... my primitive (is that the right word?) goal was to get to Trusted Member but I don't think I really need to go that far.

  Thank you SO MUCH for posting that GIS......

After beating 800 levels on BB.....

I seem to be even worse than I was in the beginning... -.-
gameinsky 8 years ago
  Note, kid levels should be completable by 6-8 year olds.
Easy levels shouldn't be too hard.
Medium levels make you think but aren't too hard neither.
Hard levels should let you struggle to solve them.
A lot of levels have had the wrong cathegory sinse a lot of blockoban creaters are good at this game, please keep that in mind.

  Thanks everyone! I just beat a bunch of "Kids" and "Easy" levels to get the award! XD
AK 8 years ago
  Actually, I can't stand big levels...

Yeah, Colorful Garden was made basically only because it looked awesome. XD I also thought it was easier than it actually was... -.-
Jos 8 years ago
  Actually the official levels with 300+ moves needed aren't worth to be persued. If you want to make large levels, you can maybe use block groups? Block groups make it more challenging and take care that you don't need 200+ moves.

  @Daft: Great job on the award.
AK 8 years ago
  I've seen accepted levels with 300+ moves needed... But OK....

I wanted to make a great BG level.... I'm going to try to make Paradise Garden 2 a bit smaller.... I know it's odd to make a sequel of a rejected level, but I think a garden is a perfect level...

Actually, i'll just rename it.
Jos 8 years ago
  Too large, too many blocks... and probably too many moves needed to complete it. Can you complete it in less than 200 moves, AK?

Edit: complete it in 255 moves. Isn't that a bit too much, AK?
AK 8 years ago
  Admins, why was Colorful Flower (BLockoban) rejected? Too many blocks?

And great job Daft!

Sorry if this seems weird, I like to see what was wrong with my rejected levels.

  Wow, I got the award! Wasn't expecting that!

  I hope I don't lower in the designers list with my new kids level I've uploaded.

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.
