EDIT: I don't know if RobTop was the one behind the level requests prohibition
See, exactly! That's why we have request/add-me threads for games in a different sub-forum. Why am I asking though? Because I've seen countless "YOU'RE GONNA GET BANNED!" posts in the main thread whenever someone posts a request, as well as quite a bit of reported posts. I don't know who gave the guys the idea that if someone posts a level request, a moderator is going to chop off their heads. Then again, that did happen for quite a while, didn't it? >_>

Well, that's a good reason for banning level requests. But i think we have to start to forget about the level request rules.

RobTop doesn't complain about it, because he starred/features lots of levels that were requested in the main thread recently, even I requested a level and i got a feature!

The thing is, i think we all have to decide (with RobTop and moderators) what to do about the rules about level requests.

I think this level request banning started with PSJ

Yup, it was PSJ. RobTop doesn't have any problems with level requests, he responds to them all the time on the main thread even after the rule was created.

This is very cool
The level requests banning started around the time 1.9 came out (and the community grew ever so bigger); I think PSJ just got fed up with moderating the tons of requests.
I'm totally fine with allowing requests on here, since there are tons of people that make amazing levels but barely get 100 downloads. User generated content is basically the focus of the game, I don't see the point of banning it.

Well the cool thing is, you're not limited to a single thread any more. In this sub-forum, you can create any and all threads you like for anything you like (within reason and, you know, on the legal side )

What will you the mods do with the level request thread?

Now that here we can do anything we want?

Probably just let it mellow, no harm in keeping it around.
