BUMP!

My creative mind was thinking about THUGPro today (again, as usual). And I came up with an expanded idea for this!

My idea was to make this contest 3 parts/3 weeks.

Week 1 would be the park creator itself, making the park, and the judges pick the best one. This is what we had so far anyways.

Now here comes week 2, were it gets expanded.
Week 2, the winner of week 1 joins the judges, and the participants (new participants allowed) make the best goals for the winning park.
There's a few good things you can do with goals, for example SKATE/COMBO letters, and races.

The judges (including winner of week 1) decide who wins week 2.

For week 3, no judges are needed!
My idea for week 3, was to make a competition who could complete all the goals in the fastest time possible! This gives our more skilled (but maybe less creative?) players good candidates for a competition as well.

Whoever reads this, please let me know your thoughts?

Good idea! I hope there can be enough people to join. I think I can as well, so I'll see whenever someone actually does this xD

Okay so (SO FAR) thats Shut, Moose, and me.

1 judge and 2 participants.

Maaayybe I should start to believe in it?

Maybe I should just go for it and host one, it might go terrible, but idk, I want a few more people interested (again) before I lose my insecurities.

Or 3 judges, any participants, does it work for a fair amount of makers sending their stuff? We won't have much participants, anyway, so why lock to 2 participants?

I am not! I actually want as many people as possible, 5-10 would work well.

I never said (or never meant to) lock it at a certain amount of people, anyone is welcome!

I can judge also. I won't be making any parks.

I will work on the contest uploader page.

@sk8ace

That sounds good! I can be either judge or participant myself, I'd love either role.

I wouldn't want to host it completely though.

Maybe you can, since you can also make an upload section and you are fine with judging?

I'm bad with hosting, had a couple of not so good experiences with it, but I can try. (Although I'd much rather have a stronger person in this community do it)

This topic was mainly meant for the idea it self, and feedback to that. I never meant to start anything official myself (although I could)

uploader is done and added a section to the forums for contests.

You guys need to make up a set of rules/guidelines for CAP makers to follow.

Then we need a start date and an end date for submissions.

Once we have all that, I will make an official post in the new forum section and we can start it.

Anything else?

Awesome! A few guidelines from my head to see if i help:
  • Be consistent to the theme.
  • You may upload only one park per contest
  • Please include a preview and at least 2 screenshots of the map.
  • Don't be an abusive judge
  • Don't ragequit and/or curse at the judges if your map didn't win.
  • PLEASE NO CLICKBAIT

Last one shows how i ran out of ideas.

I agree on needing a specific theme or style.

Judging should have 5 or so categories, each worth 10 points.
Flow
Design
Playability
Overall

stuff like that.

Here is my idea for the first contest:

sk8ace is the (only?) judge (more are welcome IMO). Shut, Moose, me (and hopefully a few others) participate.

We do the 3-week program I suggested earlier in this topic, I thought it was a pretty cool idea. Maybe we need some more time before the first week starts, to gather participants.

Theme idea for the first one is simple, yet effective. City theme.

Judging on:
- Looks & Design
- Playability & potential lines
- Originality & accuracy on theme
- Overall rating

(possible other ratings could be: Clever use of mechanics, Gaps, Whether it's based on something, does it bring anything new, etc)

People can submit their entries with park uploads and screenshots. If possible, video's/commentaries are welcome too.

Other than that, combined with everything else we/I posted, this could make for a doable and hopefully fun contest!

I'm glad with the possibilities, my ideas being taken seriously, people's recommendations, etc.
