Am I correct in thinking that the player who goes by "the max" in game is known as Rlbabits on the forums? I'm a bit a confused because his saved designs contain Scarmiglione (attributed to Protogenius here) as well as Angelwing and Borderline (here attributed to Rlbabits).

I must say that Angelwing is one of my favorite designs ever. I'm also a big fan of Lobstrosity, Python and any of the mechanical arm designs by this author.

I would nominate Ken's Collection Agent or any of his similar designs.

Maybe Thik's Ad Infinitum! infinite boomerang solve for Unpossible.

Rlbabits=the max=protogenius

I feel bad turning any of these down because I don't want to offend the authors, but I feel babits' proto-arm quality is best displayed in angelwing and scarmaglione which are like the better versions of lobstrocity and python, and they are both already a part of this. As for ken's I feel like even though he is becoming freaking awesome with his arm/retriever technique, I don't know if that design quite fits in here (maybe something else though). Of course, I am not the qualified person to be judging proto-esque designs like his, that's just my personal opinion of that design. As for thik's design, it's cool, but it I wouldn't say it is one of the "greatest ever" (again, just my opinion).

While nothing comes directly to mind for me as ken's best design, I'm gonna look through his designs because I feel like he should be showcased here (and if not here, then every greatest contraptioneers video from here on out).

Haha, I know you've always been really proud of Revolutionary. And being someone who doesn't understand how 75% of your contraptions work, I know I probably don't have a full appreciation for the technical mastery it displays. But it just doesn't have the same visual mind-blowing-ness that a lot your other designs have.

And I know Thik's boomerang was kind of an awkward nomination, but it just seems so unique. It's every bit as good as Egg Robber, as far as I'm concerned. (Which as fun and mysterious as it is, might not actually belong here.) I'm also not remotely blown away by "11470539 - An MG shuffle solve From Most".

Rianbay's Laundry Shoot always impressed me.

Remy's carpenter extender is also pretty ipecac: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11239800 I know he has other impressive carpenter designs, just don't feel like looking for them.

remy, I think everyone else here can I agree when I say all of those should be on the list. There's very little that you've made that hasn't blown me away. However, I don't want, for obvious reasons, this turning into a remy showcase (I was saying the same thing about rlbabits the other day).

What I thought would be good was if we included an artsy design, an extender, and a hard solve from you. So I'll replace fanatasie with either squeeze master or one of these:

Thanks for getting that done Brian, I'll work on trying to get Doing it Hard finished. I'll look through IG's designs when I get home, but thanks for adding Season and Skitters to the list, we definitely need them!

I wanna attribute people who have refurbished old designs in the video. Maybe when we say who it's by, we can add below it "restored by Brian3.14". And if we get a few more music selections I'd like to open up a poll and vote on the best choice. Keep the designs and music suggestions coming!
