Some questions that just came up:

1. If we're working with a judge and place in the top 3, what happens to FFA+ decors? Do they get moved down a place, similarly to prizes? If so, let's say a judge's map places first. Would the second place map then get the first place decor, and so on?

2. When judging a judge's map, who will stand in as the fifth judge? Will you be taking an average of the other judges' scores? Scaling the point system to account for the missing judge? Something else?

3. As of right now, the point system isn't fully clear. Is it just the highest number of points earned (adding the scores of all 5 judges) or the highest overall average of points?

4. Will judges be included in the official rankings (as prizes will be bumped down a place anyways)? If they are, what sort of distinction will be made between maps that have judge contributors and maps that don't? Will places just be duplicated? If not, how will judge maps be factored in? Or will you just do a separate list?

We've realised that a few things have been a little unclear, so I'm going to clarify some new things that have changed and old things that remain the same.
- In terms of how maps created by judges will be judged, this is what will happen: the remaining judges will judge the map as normal and their scores will be averaged as normal, except there will only be 4 scores to average instead of 5. This should have no effect on potential placing.
- The final score a map receives is the average of each judge's individual score. (i.e. if each judge gave the map the following scores: 10, 11, 9, 12, 10 then the final score would be 10.4).
- Maps created by judges will not be included in the final ranking. They will be put in a separate column/list. (i.e. there will be the 'A-List' of maps made by non-judges and a 'B-List' which exclusively includes the maps by judges).
- Maps will not automatically go into FFA+ based on the score/ranking. Instead, if a map is voted in during the next ballot, its box will feature a special sign indicating its placement in the competition.
I hope this clears things up a bit!

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will no longer be able to judge this competition. However, I will still be supplying the prizes, albeit through Hex.

Good luck to the competitors and the other judges.

Hey all, a reminder that you have about 1 week until the Puzzlecomp map submission deadline. Submissions after this point will not be accepted. Map submissions will still be accepted at this point if they aren't completely scripted yet, but after this point please avoid editing your maps in any way. If you do need to tweak anything PLEASE TELL THE JUDGES, as we want to judge the same version of the map.

3 days left! Here's what you need to know.
The deadline for entry is August 31st, at midnight your local time. This will allow you to get the most time to finish your builds. After this point, do not alter your builds in any way, as judging will be commencing and we do not want the versions of the maps that we are playing to vary from judge to judge. The exception to this is, of course, if there is still scripting that needs to be done. If there are any small edits that you would like to make to the map after the deadline that cannot wait until after judging, please inform us that you are changing something and tell us exactly what you are changing. You will be free to do whatever you like to your submissions after judging has finished.

Hey all! Quick update here. Reviewing is well underway, and we are hoping to get the results of the competition published by the end of October. This is in no way a deadline, however, and as we want to prioritize quality over speed we will push our reviewing period into November if it is needed. As well, due to time commitment issues, rickyboy320 has stepped down from judging for this competition. In his place, we have elected to recruit @djnysted and @Zombie as stand-in judges, bringing our judge total back up to 5. We do not anticipate this will majorly extend the judging period.
