SMW hacking is mostly dead on talkhaus (much like the rest of the site oho), but I feel like a nice way we can stirr up some interest on talkhaus and SMW again could be a contest. I suggested it in the hat contest topic
but I wasn't fully serious

And considering MaGLX3 is pretty much over and done and the LP is close to the end, I'd like to propose a MaGL4. I'm not sure about entry amount, possibly very low considering talkhaus is super dead? I'm willing to judge regardless of amount, but I'm not sure who else can judge. I'd like it to be SMW hackers that also go on talkhaus from time to time than just SMWCers. As for gimmicks, I'm also not sure. I'd like to go for an everything goes approach like MaGL1&3 because imo MaGL2 and non-Vanilla, non-Chocolate SMWC contests' gimmicks can be a bit hindering to new designers and I assume most people have the most experience with vanilla hacking, the only chocolate they know being insertion of extra assets.PSI Ninja wrote: ↑2 months ago I would love to see a MaGL4 happen, because I'm dying to participate in a Talkhaus level design contest. I never had the opportunity because I started posting here in December 2019, so I missed the MaGLX3 signups earlier that year. Honestly, I wish level design contests were a bit more frequent on the Talkhaus, with at least one a year. So that way, interested parties don't have to wait every 4+ years like the Olympics to get involved. I remember reading an old post somewhere that said we should alternate every year with a SMW and SMBX contest. Maybe we should aim for something like that going forward. Problem is, of course, finding enough people willing to handle events of this magnitude on a recurring basis. Especially since the Talkhaus isn't as active as it used to be.
But yeah if there's any interest feel free to give a shout out. I'm gonna let rao and Rena know about this so they can signal boost it. If it does get off the ground someone can advertise it on SMWC, I'm not persona non grata there, but my account was disabled for the sake of my mental health at this point, according to bebn.
I'm expecting bellyaching about how the best winner is going to be the one with the most ASM, but if you're competing to win first place and not to have fun, you played yourself
