I've been too busy for almost 3 weeks now; just going to have 10 days to finish my submission! You can get it done.

Half of the people who entered didn't. That's why there is two demos and one beta.

Not going to release a less-than-perfect map. If the deadline was postponed, things would be different.

We'll see. The mapping contest exceeded expectations, and a lot of people narrowly missed the deadline. An asset contest is more repeatable as it's less of a commitment, and more people make assets than make maps ...but of course this is all an experiment.
It's worth maintaining if there are at least 3 entries each month.

I mean I like the idea but when it came to something like CE3 we wanted to do it 2-4 times a year. We didn't so the one that we did would be a big event. Not just another thing.

I'd just cut down. Bi-monthly. Once a quarter. Etc.

Many did, and the ones with issues were either released very early in the contest, done in just the last day, or worked on for only about a third of the contest period.

Either way, the recurring competition won't be for maps.

Not to be a total jackwad but realistically speaking, making a full functional and well balanced map takes more than a month. SP is a bit wonky for the latter but thorough testing and understanding feedback of that testing is essential for both sides. A month simply isnt enough time to cut it unless you have people assisting you fulltime the entire way through

Hemoasis was about 1 month long. There was a point in which I didn't touch it for 2 weeks. Although, I didn't do any beta testing, etc. But yeah, 3 months is a good amount of time to spend on a map. It gives you time to fix any minor gameplay issues and visuals. I do think that an overall development pipeline of a level can save a massive amount of time.
