I used to like Skeezix until he downrated one of my levels because it didn't have a :goalc: , however, it very much did have a :goalc: , and he just didn't see it.

Other than that, though, he seems pretty good.

I mean it happens, but if he messes up a couple times in the name of protecting me from annoyingness I'll accept it.

Here's another one that looks plausible: http://fantasticcontraption.com/designs?levelId=611434

The thing is though, someone had already solved my level in one piece. It might not have been a good level, but if anything, it was too easy, not too hard.

While most of the time I agree with him, he can be a little over the top.

It's always fun to look through the levels he deems impossible. Often you can find a hidden jewel of a level in there.

Sheezix doesn't know what a variation is. If you publish variations of a level, he will create a design called "Hey Stoopid" with a description of "How many times are you going to repost this level ****?"

He knows what a variation is, and thinks they are stupid.

Not the first time I've been mistaken, and likely not the last.

i definitely appreciate when he posts on the absolutely useless levels, but sometimes i feel he goes too far. i understand that its a fine line between truly impossible and incredibly difficult but when a person puts effort into a level and then skeezix puts it down (which is rare, usually its just awful levels), i feel the level should be given a chance

I try very much to do that. Sometimes I fail. Feel free to point it out when I screw up.

Hello Skeezix, I'm going to post this here hoping that you see it. I appreciate your feedback on levels, I agree that plainly impossible levels are a waste of clicks which is why I always test my levels, at least to the point that I know that the pink objects will fit in the goal area. I am not a very good contraptioneer, not by the standards some show in this game so when I design a level I like to think I have an idea as to how it could be solved even if I cannot actually solve it myself. On a few of my levels you have asked me to show a solve for my level http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?levelId=613248. I'm afraid to say that this is one of those levels which I could not solve, I got so far and could not complete it, I posted where I got up to in the hope that someone else could solve it, it didn't happen, so I'm sorry, there is no solve...
