Personally won't be entering as my days of creating in LittleBigPlanet have drawn to a close. However, I wish all participants the best of luck! Great prizes in store here, and a fitting end to LBPC's long reign of community contests. Bravo!

Well, no reason for me to not enter this contest. I'll need to think of a good level (Or set of levels) for it, but I'll do my absolute best. :)

Surprised I still remember my log in.

hehe.

Well since this is the last contest and most likely the last contest for LBP ever I'd enter. It's quite sad to see this being the last as LBP was a great game but all good things must come to a end.

Someone in our PS4 community asked about psn gift cards for different regions - if you’re not in the US or EU region that’s okay, you’ll receive a gift card in the correct currency for you to use. The value will be equivalent to the dollar/euro value mentioned in the original post.
So please don’t hesitate to enter, it doesn’t matter what psn region you are, we’ll make sure you get the right prize if you win :)

I may enter in contest just for the heck of it. It maybe the last thing I do in LittleBigPlanet before I move on in Dreams and other games, I really want to relive the classics in my levels.

Oh and one last note, Thanks for everything you guys done for us in the last 10 years. :)

This is sad and joyous at the same time. Joyous that this little bundle of cotton has given smiles for 10 years, lbpcentral has given a lot of folks a home for so long. Sad that lbpcentral is hosting its last contest. I’ve been saying for 3 years now, I’ll get time to do stuff, if I don’t publish a fantastic level I’ll at least post a tribute level to the people I have met along my journey and how all of you have helped me get where I am today! Going to juggle some things and bench some others, but I Hope to enter something.

I think I will finally release a level. I got school out of the way. If this is truly the last contest, mind as well contribute.

Sounds like a really awesome contest!

I have a question though. Why was it decided that this would be the last LBPC contest? Is it because the release of Dreams is coming so soon?

I'd say because LBP Central has it's age and LBP is not as popular anymore. But I'm not JWW, so just my guessings here.

I wouldn't say that personally. I just came on LBP3, and it's still populated with new levels. I would say that its not really the game itself, but rather this site that has lost its popularity. If there was a way we could get more people to come on this site (for LBP3), then this site would be way more active.

It's forums in general. Twitter is more attractive to people. The game itself still has roughly 14000-15000 plays, true, probably even more, but it was way more.

I have enough time, but unfortunately not a team or enough money probably to host a site like this.

That's fine. You guys have done a great job over the years. Can't wait to play all the levels when they come out!

I agree 100% and I am probably the one you can blame at the moment. However, with all the things needed to make this site thrive, it takes quite a bit of work to make it happen and sadly I have no time for that. My job is horribly demanding and my free time is very limited due to all the other stuff I do in my receding spare time. I have enjoyed running the site for all this time, but in my efforts to pass the baton, no one seems interested.

I have had many suggestions on rebranding the site, doing this, doing that... but again, all that takes time and as much as I wish I had done some of those things, that is more spare time I really don't have.

It takes a bit of $$, a bit of techy knowhow, and quite a bit of effort to keep it moving, and with the amount of traffic we have the past year or so, besides the amount of upgrades I would need to do "under the hood" so to speak, to keep this all alive... the 10 anniversary seemed like a great time to maybe wrap this all up and move to the next venue. I feel that Dreams will be coming very soon and the natural progression of this site is to move out of the way and all of us join Dreamsverse. Why reinvent the wheel when the LBPC of Dreams is at Dreamsverse, with many of our friends already there?

Keep in mind that I don't take this decision at all lightly... and why I want this contest to be so cool. However, I would like to go back to the topic at hand being this contest rather than wax on about why this is probably the last contest on this site.

..if you would like to discuss it with me, do it on another thread or just send me a PM. I think we have more than enough threads on LBP and LBPC fading away at the moment. :)

I've seen one entry so far. We'll see how many will join until the end of 2018.

I don't have too much knowledge outside of LBP, I have a small, limited budget and my internet connection is not always the best, but I definitely want to support this site. At least until it's really time.

I am guessing most entries will come mid December or later. There are a lot of holidays with the timeline of this contest.

I don't think in the past LBP contests they leave feedback for any of the levels. I wouldn't expect it especially in this contest since the levels will probably be so different! I recommend posting your level in the level showcase and asking someone to review it there.

The crew will play all the levels. You shouldn't expect a review from every crew member, but I personally will leave a review in LBP3.

I generally don’t leave reviews when I’m playing as a judge, however if anyone specifically wants a review, I would leave one after the contest in finished :)

Alright here's my level submission. It didn't re-upload it or anything, I just had to edit the name to say "(platformer)" at the end.

Hello, sorry I'm new here, and I have a question. I had recently uploaded my submission for this contest in this thread. I saw that one of the rules for this, was that you cannot submit a level that had been published before. Right after I published my level, I had added something into the title name, but after I did that it said that I had republished it. This is a completely new level of mine. Will this level submission still work for the contest?

You’re able to edit/rename the level all you want until after the deadline. :D

I'm sorry if all of my questions are getting annoying, I'm new here, and I don't mean to abuse this thread in any way. My question is different. One time I went into a dive in, in LBP3. The host was playing a glitch dlc level. At the score board I got a lot of dlc. I thought it was fake, and I never would intentionally play these levels, and I would never use that dlc that I haven't paid for, or earned. I saw this question earlier. "Q: What if the winner already has the crown? A: The 2nd place might get it." One of the glitch dlc's was the crown, and the cap. I can't use it, not only because I don't want to, but I have no real access to it because I have never downloaded the dlc. It's just idle in my poppit. If I get any of these winner places, will I end up having access to the same item that has been in my poppit? I assume so right? I still have never been able to use it anyway. By the way, I have never hacked, or abused Littlebigplanet. Please answer my question, thank you:)

I personally would delete the items you don't have access to, to make sure LBP3 doesn't cause weird bugs.

Anyway, if you win you'll get the crown/cap. You just get access to the items if you already have them in the popit.
Continue creating!

Yes, I would also recommend deleting those items to avoid them causing issues. And make sure you don’t have Sackbots wearing those items in any of your levels as that could cause you to get locked out of create mode later on.
But don’t worry, having those things in your Popit doesn’t affect your contest entry or make the judges think anythig bad about you ;)

There is one crown issue that is well known and unfortunately I am affected by it.

If you downloaded the crown from the psn store about 5 years ago while it was inadvertently free for everyone, you will not be able to have it even with a legit code. I can only where my crown in the vita version and maybe lbp2....
