Do Slayers and Wubbas count as monsters, even though they are not required to complete a room?

It seems like we're going to be making several small holds in a similar manner to The Goblin only in our own architectural styles, not Jacob's.

A good idea for a contest to follow the "no doors" contest.

Don't worry, you can use platforms over pits as the floor and you can just use obstacles as walls. :)

No, seriously, that's why I normally make a list of things you can't use rather than lists of things you can use, since I know I'd forget something like that.

Not sure whether I'm going to enter yet. Between making the Technology style and doing Biggest Box puzzles I might not have time. I look forward to playing the entries though :)

This helps with a hold design I am working on, if I can keep control of the rights to the hold, so I can develope it further. ;)

No no, Anson, he's saying that since we don't want two copies of a level on the Holds board, if you're going to put your level in another hold, it will not be in the compilation. That way, those who play your hold and the compilation won't have to play your puzzles twice.

I heard giving someone more and more rank points cost more so how much would 5 rank points cost (in case I ever consider making a contest)

Actually, modding a post higher and higher costs more and more - depending on the absolute value of the post's score, so if a post's score goes below 0 and gets lower and lower price increases as well.

So a post with a score of 0 or 1/-1 costs 2 mod points, a post with 2/-2 or 3/-3 costs 3 mod points, 4/-4 or 5/-5 costs 4 mod points etc.

EDIT: So modding a post from 0 to +5 is going to cost you 2 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 4 = 14 mod points.

I suppose that's your right, Anson. I'm rather curious, though: why?

Cheer up. It was a good idea. It's not your fault you didn't get more entries.

Neather2, I'd suggest you extend the deadline. I'm sure that Jacob just needed more time to make his entry, and it seems like there are others who are also interested.

Sure, it's quite all right to extend your contest so you get a full cadre of entries.
