  Hey Toughman.

I have no idea what has caused this but I suppose it's a database error. I've contacted JP about this and now we just have to wait for him to look at this matter.

  Hi guys. I realize there is a problem with the scores across the board of all BL games (at least for BB and PI for sure). In all levels I tried - even past ones - it shows that there are no scores yet and I cannot save any new score. Is there any system/softaware update under way or have we (the community I mean) been attacked by hackers? Or is it just me and my computer?

  @ marcogardaland Ho cercato di contattare l'utente per oltre un anno su ciò che deve essere fatto per rendere i livelli accettabili. Vi prego di contattarmi su questo forum o messaggio personale e farò quello che posso per aiutarvi.

  If I need to find titles for levels, I use google for synonyms.
ToughMan 7 years ago
  Apparently the creator has uploaded several levels but noone can get in touch with him/her. And since you mention Murat I can tell you that he doesn't speak english but he has managed to communicate every now and then with the rest of the members and as for his choice to use a numbering approach I believe he has made soooo many levels - trying to come up with English!! titles - that he probably run out of english ideas and terms. I think it is a smart choice from his point if view. The reason of the title is that it must represent the level and after more than 5500 levels it is the best and probably only indicator members can have to choose between them.

  What's the prob with italian level titles??? The title of a level is not such interesting! See Murat's choice.
ToughMan 7 years ago
  I kind of disagree with the approach guys. That is take the liberty and initiative to change the names. And my disagreement lies with the principle not the substance of this action. This is a community whereby members from all over the world gather to enjoy and have fun. During this time they come together, exchange views, opinions and are trying to improve the quality of the game. If you take away the communication part and make the community impersonal - that is anyone throws a series of levels and let admins do the work (change titles, change tiles, eventually create new levels for them) - then this "new community" won't be anything different than all those sites with flash games and no interaction. All members have to find a way to be active, communicate and contribute to the game. And i'm not talking about the language. The communication may be in Italian, Chinese or even Greek (i wish) but it has to be established first before anything else. Unless members can communicate (let alone properly) they cannot receive the criticism, reward and recognition they deserve and therefore you cannot interfere to smn's work - even if it means changing the title - without his consent or approval. At least I wouldn't want that for my work. You respect the members you respect the community.

  If you need a translation from Italian to English for the level names I can do that. But why don't just use MG or MGL (for Marco Gardaland) and a number?

  Jp won't response his PMs, contact him via twitter.
alanliu12121 7 years ago
  Send JP a message or something.
SimonM 7 years ago
  The only one who might be able to get his e-mail is jp.
ToughMan 7 years ago
  Not for the admins right? or jp?
SimonM 7 years ago
  Yes, but that e-mail account is hidden for us.
ToughMan 7 years ago
  I don't remember but I thought when you register you provide an e-mail account, no?
SimonM 7 years ago
  I won't reject his levels though, I could find English titles for him. Blockoban is not just a game, it's a community. But contacting properly seems a good idea, but you can just e-mail him because you don't know his e-mail adres.
ToughMan 7 years ago
  The first thing you need to do is establish communication so I'd suggest sending an e-mail to him (not just PM). If he has been active lately I'd use this screen - as front screen - and let him know in basic italian how to contact you directly. Then you can guide him.

  Use google translate :)
oldmtnguy 7 years ago
  If anyone can help me out there please let me know. We have a player who continues to submit levels but will not respond to any PMs or messages on levels to be edited that I give him. His profile says he's from Italy and Oldmanrob sent a message to him previously with no response. This is been going on for a year now and he has submitted about 50 levels. So if anyone can help me with Italian translations and send a message to this player I would appreciate it.

  Thanks TZ for the tip, just posted my ideas (not far from yours) in the forum.
Treazer 7 years ago
  ToughMan, I've already suggested this here 3 months ago ;) If you have suggestions for the whole website (because this would affect every game), post them there.
ToughMan 7 years ago
  A small suggestion to JP or Admins worth exploring if it is not so hard to implement:
When you point your mouse on an official level and only in the large icons section the information box tells you (if you have completed the lvl) your score (i.e. 24). For optimization purposes and ease in tracing these levels that require further optimization it would be ideal to have at the same box the current top score so you know whether you have reached it or need to revisit. If this is easy to do I'd suggest applying it to every other - not official level - in the new levels list.

  SuperMario - I found the game about 4 days ago and have been playing it since. So addicting
alanliu12121 7 years ago
  Because we've been here longer than you. As you play levels, you might get some inspiration.
Elijahblue 7 years ago
  This game is great. How do you come up with the ideas for the levels, I wouldn't know where to start.

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.
