Is GB in coins in the level screenshot sufficient? I have a lot going on at the beginning of my level.

Beginning of the level.

@benpack: Do we have to use coins for the GB or could we make it out of other stuff?

Coins

@benpack: Unfortunately, their upload system does not allow you to edit existing stages and reupload them. You would have to delete the original level—losing all associated comments and maker points in the process—and then upload a fresh version.

Still, worth making something from scratch to stump the crew. Thanks!

Oooof! That sucks to hear.

@kirbutashi: That's right. It's the most fair way we could come up with to make sure people were submitting their own levels. Feel free to edit an old level and add the GB, though!

What if we make a super good-ass level that you just really like? Will you guys just be like, "Hey, this was a super good-ass level that we really like"?

According to section IV article 3 of the "Get on my Level Tome of Rules and Regulations" we do reserve the right to award certain levels for creativity.

Hello fellow gamers! Ben here to announce a brand new feature for the website Giant Bomb dot com. Do you like Mario? Do you like free shit? Well if you answered no to either of those questions I don't understand but you can still watch our new show Get on my Level.

Join two of our resident Mario experts, Dan Ryckert and myself, on a journey where we will try our best to defeat Super Mario Maker 2 levels created by YOU, our wonderful community. Come together to witness us experience the joy of victory and the agony of defeat

Also the agony of deez feet.
Also the agony of deez feet.

Now you're probably wondering "but you said there was free shit," to which I would say "relax buddy I'm going to explain that in this paragraph. Anyone is welcome to supply a level for us to play on the show, and if you manage to create a level that is not bullshit* and we are unable to beat it, you can win a free month of Giant Bomb premium.

In case you were curious what a GB spelled out in coins looks like.
In case you were curious what a GB spelled out in coins looks like.

All you need to do to enter is supply a code here for your level. In order to make sure these are your levels, all we ask is that you make a GB out of coins on the first screen of the game. If Dan and I deem your level to be reasonably fair and we get stumped by it, you're winner!

We will be recording our first episode Friday, July 26 so you have until then to post levels here, but if you don't finish in time fear not because we will gather another grouping of levels sometime after that. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

*Bullshit includes, but is not limited to levels that have a super obfuscated solution that we wouldn't reasonably find, and auto scrollers.

I've fully embraced launching my mechs into Vek for killing blows. It's easy to not want to take damage at all but I found most matches I was finishing with very high if not full health but had taken a grid damage or two.
