This post works better if everyone just pushes play on this video before reading.

There's something about power sliding around corners in a tank that seems equally appealing and absurd. But... yeah, this thing seems really lame.

@jeff: How does one get one's levels onto the 100 Mario challenge?

Interesting correlation you're seeing. I'm seeing (what looks like) a clear pattern of "the longer it's up, the more it accumulates," even on my first uploads which aren't as, err, user-friendly as my later ones.

I suspect any level is eligable to be included, but I don't know how they work that part of the algorithm. You're also right that things that stay around for awhile seem to start accumulating plays. I wonder if that's saying that it takes awhile for a level to get rolled into 100 Mario selection or something?

I'm getting the impression that easier levels get starred more frequently, since people are likely to star something upon finishing it.

The people playing 100 Mario on Expert seem to be getting in the habit of starring anything that seems like a proper level and not just gimmicky nonsense, so that might be a route as well (though that depends on you making levels that end up getting classified as Expert, I suppose).

This is really dumb. It's another completely arbitrary wall between editors and GB. We can add controllers and games, but not consoles. We can add images but not headers. We can make add releases but not aliases.

None of it has any logic.

We need to have a firmer grip on platforms because of things like short names and abbreviations and the way those show up around the site. We don't let users add aliases because they directly impact search on the site and are used to correct search issues rather than serve as a basic clearing house for whatever abbreviation people happen to be using that week. We also don't let most users update headers due to the potential for abuse.

You can go ahead and say that you don't like the way we've built this stuff, but don't try to say that there's no logic behind it.

This stuff extra sucks because there are actual things that I'd like to know that I'd put into a survey like that, but, yeah, like @rorie said, we didn't know this dumb thing was happening until it happened. Lame.

Keep thinking alcohol, y'all!

I totally agree. Drox Operative is cool.

They appear to be designing products for PMCs and the ex-military folks who train would-be operators. Crazy stuff.
