I've corrected the title of your forum.
As an official TBC hoster, I'll give you a few helps and criticisms for your Track builder contest. It's just my opinion, though.


First of all, your first post lacks...some precisions.
You can't just say "All right, you need to make this kind of track, you have a few days, see ya" in your first post and explain everything else after that, it's important to outline your TBC if you don't want to have to answer to a ton of questions after that.

• A small intro is always useful to make a good impression.



• Only putting "MKT NITRO" as a theme and "MAKE A MKT NITRO TRACK" was unclear. It was quite specific, and it would have been clearer if the terms were explained from the first post.



• Criteria are a good idea for a contest. There's more objectivity since they go further than a first impression/ distinguish the track builder from the track.

The criteria doesn't have to be overly complex (depends if you want to rate the tracks fast or precisely), but it should contain enough basic criteria.

You also need to make sure that the criteria doesn't have any contradictions or flaws that could be exploited by the track creators.

Here are your criteria.
Music
Check points
Decor
"if it even looks like the map u chose"
(respect of the original track used)

I see a major problem here : if the rating is only based on criteria as it's supposed to be, using a map from the game with the corresponding elements would get the highest grade !
It follows every guideline :

- It looks like the map, since it's the actual map used on MKPC.
- The original music can be found on Youtube.
- The rest isn't hard to do, if you know how to make a track in complete mode ("Decor" is also quite unclear).

Criteria like the walls, the holes and the CPU route aren't mentionned neither. They're also important.


• You have set the deadline to "THURSDAY". It's unclear. Is that Thursday the 10th or the 17th, the 24th...?
It's probably the 10th (06/10). In that case, a precision is always useful.
In that case, I'm not really sure that 3 days is enough for most track builders. There won't be a lot of submissions.
I often take more than that to create a fully-detailled track, but I don't know your expectations.
I suggest you a length of at least 1 week for your contest.



• You can tell if there are any awards, it may interest people to submit a track. It's not mandatory though, contests for fun are totally fine !



• Oh, and, one last thing. Don't write your post in caps only, it feels like you're shouting. It doesn't make the reader really comfortable.


That were just a few advices. I must have forgot several things, but the elements I've given should be enough to make a better TBC.



TL;DR : You should add an intro, the theme and the deadline are unclear, the criteria should be reworked, and avoid using caps only.

Since it was the only one it wins. But if there were more pepole you could of had a chance at winning. You had the right music and right track shape. The checkpoints were really good and yea. 5/5 the winner is Eth!

Advice: If you're gonna give a reward or something, like a music remix, then private chat it to the winner. Otherwise anyone uses it.
Same with badges for profile pictures, you can just download the image. So, private chat rewards that are files.
