What next in my CC blog?

Recommended Posts

So, at the start of the year I wrote I few entries in a blog here just to test out the system (click on Blogs up top). I plan on writing more entries as the year progresses, but would be interested in knowing what you guys would want to read. You can pitch your ideas here, and I will post below for some of the ideas I already have, two or three at a time. Then, when I get around to writing about them, I'll see which of the topics has had the most "vote up"s and write about that.

 

While waiting for the first votes to come in, go and read what I wrote last time :-)

List of topic suggestions:

A: How I got into CC - posted

B: Some CCLP4 thoughts

C: Comments on CCLP3 levels (part I)

D: Common Design Mistakes

E: Thoughts on level optimization

F: Short review of CCLP2

Topic suggestion A: How I got into CC

 

Vote this post up if you want to read about how I was introduced to CC and then later the CC community, and how I started improving my scores. I think it should serve as a glimpse as to why I play this game as a hobby and not something else.

 

EDIT: With four votes, this topic has now been posted: http://cczone.invisionzone.com/index.php?/blog/2/entry-10-how-i-got-into-chips-challenge/

Topic suggestion B: Some CCLP4 thoughts

 

Vote this post up if you want to read what my current expectations and ideas for CCLP4 are. It's early in the game for CCLP4, but I'm sure many of us already have formed some small ideas or wishes and such. For example, could it contain invalid tiles?

Topic suggestion C: Comments on CCLP3 levels (part 1)

 

Vote this post up if you want to read my opinions on the individual CCLP3 levels in order. How do I perceive the levels as a casual player, optimizer and wanna-be designer? I'll write a general CCLP3 review at some point too, but this would delve deeper into the levels and optimal routes.

Miika, I see what you have done, but please don't triple post in a topic. Edit the original next time or add a poll.

 

Anyway, I'd like to see a blog about your thoughts and feelings of an upcoming CCLP4.

I'm aware that I posted four messages in a row, but in this rare instance I considered it to be with good reason. It's much easier for me to see people's reactions when they only need a single click to answer my question, while making it a poll won't allow me to add more topics in the future as effectively. I thought it was a decent way to utilize the existing mechanics of the site and ultimately it will generate content that people are interested in. Give it time and you'll see I'm not just trying to boost my post count. Of course you are supposed to mention it though, so this doesn't get out of hand ;)

I posted a new blog post a few minutes ago, so I should also add another topic in here for you to vote on. I'm going to try to do this in the future too, so if you see a new post in this thread by me, you'll know to check the blog!

 

Topic suggestion D: Common Design Mistakes

 

Vote this post up if you want to read what I find to be some easy mistakes to avoid when building levels. I don't pretend to be a great designer of levels, but I do like commenting on others' designs, so I might be able to help you avoid falling for some common things that could be made better. If you understand how someone else might perceive a level you make, you'll go a long way in creating enjoyable levels.

E: Thoughts on level optimization

Vote this post up if you want to give me more reputation points see Miika's opinions, anecdotes, ideas, and...well, thoughts on achieving the fastest possible times on Chip's Challenge levels.

So I posted not one, but two new posts in the blog today! http://cczone.invisi...-for-tws-files/ I'll try to visit one of the above topics soon too. Now am gonna add this as a suggestion:

 

Topic suggestion F: Short review of CCLP2

 

Vote this post up if you want to hear my general feeling about CCLP2, now over ten years since its compilation! I don't have the energy to do a full review of CCLP2, as I am planning on one for CCLP3, but I can try to reflect on how I initially experienced the set and how it looks to me right now compared to what kinds of community sets I expect we should be able to produce in the future.

I'm curious as to what you have to say on Topic D, since it's been my absolute main concern from the very first day I entered this community, and my opinions are very strong and wide on the matter.
