This thread is where you send your level to be "cleared" when you feel your level is completely finished, and preferably has been tested for bugs/glitches/poor quality.
If you've completed your level and want to submit it, you need to come here first.
Yes I know that your level might get ignored in the testing thread, so just repost it after a while if no one gives you any feedback at all.
We only need an ips file for here, but if you're at this stage, make sure you're ready to export everything.
If your level comes here and has not been through the testing and discussion, and it does not qualify on the first try, your slot will be reopened, and you will have to try to sign up again, because we do not have the patience for this.
Make a post saying what number your level is and upload an ips. We (that is, mods) will play it, and point out any bugs. If there are no bugs, and your level is judged to be of a high enough quality, then you can go submit your level and it will be in. You can submit it when your level is officially cleared for submission.
If there are bugs you can fix them and post again. If the level is not deemed to be of a high enough quality then the slot will be opened for someone else to have a go. You will still be in the slot, and you can still work on making the level good enough to qualify, but if someone signs up for your slot and makes a better level, then they will get the level slot.
Who can clear my level?
Anyone of the "Hack Collaborator" title (the names colored #0000FF blue as opposed to the darker blue,) as well as Argumentable, Daarkbuu, and AnonymousBl00dlust can clear levels.
Things we will be checking for:
Playing the level - Is it fun? Is the level unique? Does it look like a mess?
Those are the three basic questions we will be asking ourselves when moderating a level.
I think intuition should say what the result for each question should be for a cleared level.
In addition to that, if the level has a gimmick of some sort... Is the gimmick implemented in a way that is complementary to the level? Or is it just a poorly done distraction?
Also one very important thing: YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO BEAT YOUR ENTIRE LEVEL WITHOUT SAVESTATES. TEST YOUR OWN LEVEL WITHOUT SAVESTATES BEFORE POSTING IT HERE.
Also, the Yoshi-munchers aren't meant to use a vanilla palette. If you look at any level using them in ASMT, their palettes were changed. If you need to, you can just look at ASMT.
