Am I still supposed to make a level, or would it be nonsense?

I would like it if you made a level.
But its a proven point that people just say they need more time and when they get it nothing happens.

I already said that anywhere else.
People are just lazy. Everybody says, he would make a level and then: NOTHING.

I think Garmichael must go on with the contests, maybe (I dunno or we alredy do ) we can make a special thread with applications for the next contest. As there is certain number, we can start with the contest!

I would really like to make a contest again. We haven't had any contest for so long now.
But I don't want to have a tileset or remake contest. Garmichael's Level Design Contest was fine.

I have an idea for a contest:

The disaster of 2012

Challenge: Make a level where Mario has to run away from the horror that would happen on 21 dec. 2012.

Requirements: The main requirement is: Mario can't go back. It's a run level. You can use all kinds of things (lava, autoscroll, disappearing tiles) Only when you do bonus rooms with Star Coins, you may let Mario go back.

If you like it, or have any improvements, I would like to lead a new contest with this idea

Lol actually that sounds like a good idea! You can open a new thread and lead the contest!

Now that Garmichael is back, he will probably run a Contest again. I dunno.
But if he does, it is probably a good idea to make contests with the Community Remix Tilesets. So the Good levels could be straight forwarded to the Community hack.

I like that idea, with this, there is some sort of 'prize' for the winner

Yep. This sounds like a good idea. Maybe the first and second level (depending on the number of contestants) should be to the community remix, but keep in mind that the tilesets may change.

I was thinking about critiques, and I suspect that having to do a critique is a big part of why people won't join the contests, since it's a lot of work.

I wonder if instead of critiques, we could have a poll with multi-voting options, and each person should only vote for three people. Who ever gets the most points, wins.

Yep. This sounds a somewhat viable option, but I think people wont get any feedback

Also, the only options of poll voting is enabling multivote or disable it. IIRC, there is no option to only allow 3 votes on the poll...

Multi-voting makes the users allowed to vote two times, IIRC. Probably  Dirbaio could make the poll system better. So when Multi-voting is enabled you can select how often the people should be able to vote.

People still can give feedback. I will, but I won't give as detailed critiques as in the old contests. I will just point out what I like and dislike in the level. That is all.

Mulitivoting allows users to vote anything, from no options to all the options. (It's not possible to vote the same option more than once though)

I think we should make people vote for the levels that are good enough to win, either one of them, or all of them, it doesn't matter.

I still say we stick back to the old method, but instead, the critics shouldn't be that detailed as they were before.
They score the level, and they are free to give all the feedback they seem good, just going straight to the point.

I think we should do the poll thing, plus people can talk and give feedback in the thread

Also, something nice we could do: Once all the levels are posted, someone should go and make a .nmp patch that contains all the levels, so that people can try them out easily

These are great ideas.

When the current contests are done, I'll run one. I'm still debating on some ideas, but I'll have something concrete soon.

It will be SORT of a poll. In the thread, when its time for critiques, each player picks their top 3 favorite levels and puts them in the order they liked. First place gets 3 points, second place gets 2 points, and third place gets 1 point. Whoever has the most points after all critiques is the winner.

Also, the top 3 ranking would be the only requirement for critiques, but you'll be allowed to write more if you want.
