Sorting by rating is a pretty standard compilation tactic.

I've checked the Master List of official Contests through 2007. Did anything happen in August 2007?

So... apparently there is no compilation for Five-Suite Speaking Grounds, our very first contest? I know the Ben Chisel entry was later published separately.

I'm not sure about the second contest, Dungeons of Snoll. There were only two entries; they might have been published separately.

War of the Dungeons does not merit a compilation in my opinion, since all rooms were puzzle-wise identical to existing rooms.

DROD Film Festival was in fact an architecture contest, and could probably be compiled just fine with 3.x scripting abilities.

Limited Resources had a compilation in beta by Swivel and apparently it never got done.

Story of You has no compilation.

Elemental Showcase had a compilation in progress by Tahnan.

I doubt we'll ever be able to compile the architecture portions of Secret Santa.

Later I may go through the Master List of Contests and see what others are missing compilations, though it would help if we could get that up to date. Le sigh.


I had a go at that but didn't want to necro 2 threads at once so the result is here. You're more than welcome to copy that post back into the right thread.

Chaco compiled 3/5 of them. You commented on it at the time, so maybe I've missed your meaning.

I could give a hand with creating a couple of compilations if needed. Making non-puzzle rooms I'm decently competent at. :P

How many of these entries aren't Anyone Edit is the first problem, I imagine.

The meaning is that I forgot about that and didn't find it on searching. I'll cross that one off, then.

I believe there are ways around that for Caravel people... but I'd only want to use them in the event that we get the entrant's permission but he's lost the hold and can't provide us with an Anyone Edit copy.

Bumping this because we have had a veritable drought of contest compilations making it to HA lately. I looked back through a few pages to catch other contests, I don't have quite enough time on my hands to try to hunt down absolutely everything.

In addition to compilations mentioned above, I don't believe these have a published compilation, but I only glanced at some of these threads so I'm not sure. I'm just posting everything I find and we can sort out if any of these are feasible to compile later.

Secreted for length.

That's everything I had the energy to find. I don't believe anything else noted in this thread has been compiled (other than the things crossed off both lists).

Bout time to bump this since we've been dropping the ball on getting contest holds published again. Most (though not all) of the ones in Fogel's post above are still unpublished. Here are some more recent ones (oldest to newest).

The Twelve Days of Christmas - Nuntar: No architecture thread yet.

Custom Element Contest - Xindaris: This one seems to be waiting on some edits to the hub and maybe some custom images? Not sure.

Take Five - Insoluble: This one is almost ready to go. I need to upload the map and playtest. It'll happen any day now I swear! Please feel free to publicly shame me for not publishing this yet, maybe it will get me to finally finish it up.

Hold Title Mixup Contest! -Xindaris: This one looks like it's probably just about ready to go?

Putting the Pieces Together - Dragon Fogel: This one just finished a couple of days ago, but I'm listing it for completeness. Fogel seems to be much more on the ball about this kind of thing than, for instance, I am. So it's likely that this one will get published sooner rather than later.

To reiterate what I've said several times, CEC compilation needs some testing of the new "hub puzzle" rooms by people who aren't me for "is this fairly easy for someone who completed the relevant level already?" and also commentary like "this is an okay room" or "this is a horrid, dull room I would not make my enemies play". I've lost some steam for making the remaining "easy hub puzzles" and that is on me to finish but my time and energy have been in a trough (think of a sine wave) for a while lately.

HTMC: superluminal needs to respond on the suggested changes to the non-conteder level Mothergrebbin' snakes, either by saying "yeah do them", posting a copy of the level where they did them, or by posting a copy of the level where they made some different changes to render the level clearable. It's been a while but I think that's the main and possibly only holdup, aside from Chaco at one point saying something about having an entry done too late to actually enter, and me saying that should also be a non-contender level if it exists. If it doesn't or he doesn't want it added, that's fine too, but it would be helpful if I knew whether it exists/should be added or not.

I only mentioned that I was working on one; as of today it's only half-done and I'm probably not going to finish it within the next two weeks. So, definitely don't wait for me, go right on ahead.
