IMPORTANT, read this before posting

Post by Petter » Thu Nov 19, 2015 10:47 pm

Some rules for this forum:

For challenge creator:
  • Post a link to your substrate and make sure it works.
  • Set gene pool to the cell types allowed so it can easily be viewed from within game
  • Write in text allowed cell types, and any other rules, perhaps a certain number of a certain cell type and so on..
  • Try to estimate the difficulty and write this. Clearly you should have finished the challenge yourself, otherwise state this very clearly.
  • You can upload a poll along with your challenge too so people can vote on it's difficulty.
  • Write if it's ok to write or upload the solution in the forum
  • Write "highest" necessary cell type necessary to play challenge, everyone doesn't have access to all cell types.
For others:
  • Don't post/upload solutions/hints unless this has been allowed by uploader.
  • Discussing properties of substrate is fine unless uploader says so.
Template suggested by Alast:
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Challenge description, introductory text

Substrate: Link to the substrate

Objective (difficulty): Goal description

Max Cells inserted: Number

Cell Type allowed: Cell types (restrictions)

(optional) Additional Rules: Rule description

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let me know below if something is missing or it's too much :)

I will attempt to move some threads here.

Maybe posting the template we've been using so far is a good idea:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Challenge description, introductory text

Substrate: Link to the substrate

Objective (difficulty): Goal description

Max Cells inserted: Number

Cell Type allowed: Cell types (restrictions)

(optional) Additional Rules: Rule description

------------------------------------------------------------------------

That should help keeping the challenges readable if they all follow the same format :)
Perfection hasnt reached me yet, but its trying hard!

Hi Petter,

How do we upload/create a poll?

I searched for an answer for phpBB and found this: "When posting a new topic or editing the first post of a topic, click the “Poll creation” tab below the main posting form; if you cannot see this, you do not have appropriate permissions to create polls...."

I see no "Poll creation" tab when I start a topic or edit the first post of a topic.

Polls? Wow, polls like: "What cell is the best?" or "What challenge do you like the most?" would be fun... Hehe... :)

That sounds great, specially for events, because the reason I mostly stop posting was because I wanted to do that kinda thing, but since I didn't noticed enough participation I just give up, tough I still around the forum, still play the game, overall the user created challenges, but I got this complicated cause I lose my cell lab data, and I'm trying to recreate my old genomes which was pretty useful for getting executed :lol: I'm gonna follow the advice of trying that again on the update
PEACE & LOVE,

Polls were not allowed by default of some reason. I think I managed to allow them for everyone now though, permissions in phpbb is really a mess :). Happy polling!

About the structure, I think that the kind of challenges I'm doing will be in the format Alast suggested, but with an additional paragraph at the start which will be the story, and a little message at the end with some comments, you know, because is like a series

Petter, is it possible a challenge from here gets added into the game?
