    Meet The Staff Community Spotlight Crew!

    As if we Spotlight Crew aren't busy enough already, we've all cobbled together to answer all your spotlighting questions.

    Unfortunately, we're not immortal moderators so we can't edit our answers into your posts like the Meet the Staff threads you may have seen. Therefore, we'd ask you not to swamp us with reams of questions and posts. We'll try and get back to you as soon as we can.

    You could ask a general question or direct your questions at any of the retired or serving Spotlight Crew members (although, for obvious reasons, answers from long-retired members can't be guaranteed!)

    Oh my, you spotlighters are too kind! No seriously, why are you so kind?

    Also, have you ever had to play like tons of levels at the last minute? D:

    Woah, Mark was a Spotlighteer? Muist have just been for only one spotlight, two at the most, cause I don't remember that at all XD. I just remember the Spotlight being a thing and an imagined war in my mind between old LBPC and new LBPC...

    ... wait, this isn't the thread of reminiscence? I see.

    anywho, are you all legally insane to be doing this? I dare say you must be.

    This statement is true.

    Um - ya. Happens sometimes. Especially when there are a ton of levels that get posted on the Monday - Wednesday before spotlight. Although before we put the cut off on Wednesday I was playing levels posted on Friday mornings for the spotlight that night/Saturday morning.... ahhh, the good old days of no sleep.

    The answer to that is between me and my imaginary friends and they aren't talking..... not anymore.

    We have a kindness machine that we have to turn on every fortnight. Otherwise we all end up like GruntosUK... er... I mean... *cough*... uh... LOOKASQUIRREL!

    Quote Originally Posted by Doopz479 View Post

    In the five episodes I've been here, we've had to do that about five times. But last minute isn't like the literal last minute before the spotlight is posted. After our cutoff at midnight on Wednesday (kinda like Cinderella!), usually a day or two passes so we can put up the private version of the episode thread and our reviews and stuff. I guess a lot of time it feels last minute, but it kinda isn't at the same time. But it sounds like Morgana has had closer calls than I have.

    Now I have a question for you: are you also a turchicat (turtle/chicken/cat), or are you dressing up as me, or have you always been my long lost Sackbrother?

    Well, it's definitely a war. Remember The Legend of the Spotlight?

    NO. I think we should all be brutally murdered for it.
    Wait... do you mean the creators of the levels? In that case... they should be baked... and then there will be cake.

    Once I played about 55-60 levels (that was Spotlight 49). And Tan played more than I did! To give you an idea of what that means, 30 is a good average for all the levels to get done.

    Wow i bet its hard work being a Spotlight crew member and you guys are doing it all for free, that's awesome!

    I would ask to be in the PSP spotlight crew but I'm just not that good at reviewing levels and there's a whole lot of time put in i bet.
    Ill stick with just running my small contest on the PSP side that's more than enough for me lol.

    I'm not sure if i have any questions but i do want to thank the spotlight crew for there great work and time put in and AFPOO and Taffey for the PSP Creator spotlight.

    AH yes i have a question for ya PSP spotlighters now, When One of the spotlight crew publish a level worth a spotlight do you keep it a secret from them to surprise them?

    (not like its a surprise because they are all great creators)

    I think it's best for my mental health that I don't go count..... I can tell you it was over 100 for a single spotlight though.

    Over 100 levels?? *dies* So how many hours per week (on average, anyway) would you say you end up putting into the spotlight?

    Also, I think I’m liking this cake idea... would there be enough cake to go around for everybody?

    Give Taffey a little while. I'm sure he'll find cake. He's sort of the unofficial/official Spotlight caterer.

    Heavens no. If we were crazy, that would mean this fire extinguisher I have duct taped to my shin would be pointless. In fact, just the other day I was chatting with one of my sock puppets while at work, and he was completely insulted that people were saying insensitive things like he's "not real" and that "it's just your hand with some glued on buttons". The NERVE. They're the insane ones!

    Yeah, sure, and next you're going to tell me that macaroni and cheese is NOT the amassed cocoons of tiny, metamorphosized string cheese caterpillars after they've become beautiful cheddar-winged fairies with sachels of magic powdered cheese dust. If I didn't believe THAT, only then would I be crazy.

    If by "free" you mean "playing hundreds of incredible free levels and being a part of one of the best online communities of all time" then yes, we do it for free.

    Thanks Sketch! It's comments like this that make it all worthwhile, and I really mean that.

    Usually it's a ransom situation. When Salieri published Crisis in Camelot, for example, the rest of us PSP Spotlighters received anonymous, ticking packages on our front doorsteps. Salieri followed that up with a quick but friendly note I'll paraphrase as "My level is to be spotlit or I'll detonate the stale tins of cat food I've mailed to each of you". Naturally, because I don't want to go through that whole debacle again, I complied and gave a thumbs-up.

    To answer your question more seriously, however, every level is considered equally - even those made by fellow Spotlight crew members. We really put them through the wringer, and of the author of the level is placed under a strict no-touchy rule when it comes to the verdict posting process. Every single level that makes the Spotlight has earned its spot through a process of much scrutiny, especially those made by our own crew.

    Indeed!

    I think I still have some leftovers from our Spotlight crew party official and completely serious meeting from last week.

    Why do only some of you leave feedback about a level when its spotlighted? Do you all agree on who gets to say something about the level or is it certain people each time.

    Oh and keep up the good work, it must be hard playing all those levels before a certain date. I wouldnt have the time!

    I think I recall you saying it was around the 170 mark, actually!!! YIKES!!!

    I have a question... does playing so many awesome levels - and so frequently - increase your desire to create, or diminish it?

    Also, have you noticed any particular creative trends in the spotlights? For example, obviously there was massive numbers of water levels when water came out, but has there been anything else of note?

    And I usually play all the levels actually in the spotlight last minute, in order to refresh my memory when I leave comments etc.

    Well.. I'm pretty new to the team, and I'm just trying to get adjusted at the moment, so the most I've played is about 20 in one night.

    (not like its a surprise because they are all great creators)
    I'm not a PSP spotlighter, but surprisingly(?): No, we don't. (At least on the PS3 team ). We have a large private spreadsheet of all levels posted in the level showcase, in which we leave our comments and our opinion on whether it desevres a spotlight or not.


    They're the only ones I could be bothered to answer. (I'm a lazy sod. )
    So yeah, thanks a lot guys, I'll answer some more later. I don't want to steal too many questions from other people.
