Keep your eyes peeled!

With the recent influx of submission points, I think it would be in everyone's best interest to keep an eye out on the New Track Marketplace. It seems more members than just me will be turning towards it to add new games to the database. Adding any amount of your submission points will help push the track through and if you are interested in competition, you can also make free tracks from the original as long as they have the same rules.

Please help fund new tracks and be a part of the community!

    Thanks for the reminder...

    I know I'll be glad to see people get in the habit of checking there, as I'm already planning to make my March all about adding new tracks to games that need them.

    My gripe with these track creations is not what folks outside of the Twin Galaxies community would have (take your pick: inflate one's own world record count with minimal or no competition whatsoever, track dilution, stupid/useless tracks, and so forth), but rather, the carelessness factor when members opt to create these tracks. Typos, lack of region specific notations, specific track rules, and such, should be proofread heavily with no rush, since members aren't able to modify anything once the proposal's submitted. Those seasoned enough in all this'll know that the NTSC/PAL should be added in the Description section of the online form, obviously depending on the platform. Lastly, just with anything here on TG, no one's obligated to view, vote, comment, nor donate submission points. Since I do believe in helping others, I'll take a look at he Market Place page when I've a mind to, and contribute at my own discretion -Duc

    On that note, I always believe there should be a way to review and revise after a ruleset is displayed on the New Track Marketplace. It's only fair since it is 10 submission points.

    They should be cancellable and editable.

    Cancelling can offer a partial point refund for the submitter (maybe 5 of the 10 points), and refunds partial or all points donated by others.

    Editing refunds all points donated by others with notifications that the proposed track has been edited. This would encourage people to propose changes and improvements for the track that could be implemented.

    In an upcoming improvement to Twin Galaxies, when tracks are fully funded they will then be subject to approval by Twin Galaxies staff.

    During this approval process, we will be looking for any typos that may have occurred during the proposal process or edits that have been suggested in the proposal thread.

    So, you're saying to create all of our crappy junk tracks now? :)

    Create them now or create them later. We will not take this away :)
    Users will always be able to create tracks that they wish to create. (Within reason)

    This addition will be mainly for typos and edits before the tracks are finalized. You can discuss them in the proposal thread and if the community collectively decides that they would like to alter the proposed rules after the track has been funded, Twin Galaxies will make the change based on the agreed rules.
