I agree with Dark Mecha. I've been analysand forum, and I would recommend that section of levels is more simple. In my opinion, it would be nice to see 3 sub-sections, such as:
- "The best levels"
- "Normal levels"
- "Levels of battle"
Sorry for my bad English.

Jarckius, Thanks for drawing my avatar. ^.^

Have to disagree, if all levels with <8 get thrown together, the levels with scores like 7.5 will get ignored since they are in the group where also 1.0 levels are. Maybe we should make a "Good" subforum with 5 through 7.9 ratings and another one with all levels with <5.

SMBX.org is the place for which levels are qualified.
NSMBX is the place for which levels are distinguished by type.

Again, until I have reason to believe that SMBX.org is completely incapable of qualifying levels, my only answer to people who ask me how to view levels based on quality will be to tell them to go to SMBX.org.

As for the confusion you speak of, people should be choosing to look up the relevant information about posting levels before asking.
On the main page:
Levels & Level Design
Post your levels in progress here! Completed levels will get sorted out. Levels completed prior to posting can be placed immediately in the subforum pertaining to their gameplay.

In the announcement post on the above forum:
Each subforum is based on a different set of gameplay elements that will be specified in the subforum's description. As a general rule, when figuring out where to post your level, try to decide which elements your level contains the most of. If you are unsure, then you can post it directly into this forum, but make sure you put LEVEL: prior to your level name in the topic title.

Why not just add the scores given to the titles? You could add a Level Judge group to do that like we did on the original NSMBX.

What purpose would there be for scores that are not used in any way? It is not that simple krazykat, it is not that simple as many of you may think. The way the level sorting works has been decided already and there are no plans of changing them or using scores in any way. Please refrain from constantly asking what has already been both decided and explained not to happen.

No need to be so blunt about it, I was just saying that adding scores to the title of a level would make it easier to tell what you'd want to play and what you wouldn't. It's an opinion and a suggestion, I never said that's how we should sort. Magician also said the final decision wasn't final yet.

It is not final, but it ain't going to change anytime soon either, that's what I meant to say. I know your suggestions are for the better of those who would like to play the levels here, but for the time being nothing is decided yet, that's why I asked you to stop. Nothing has been thought of yet, and time doesn't forgive either, give us more time please.

No problem, if I could clarify any other doubts anyone has just let me know and if I acknowledge whatever answers you're looking for and I am actually qualified to answer said time and moment I would gladly do so.
