Happy new year users! Let us hope 2019 will bring us joy and Metroid hacks.

Before the next hacking contest, there are other contests you can participate in. This time we're going to get more creative. Join the Metconst Creativity Contest if you're interested. Anybody can contribute this time!


Every Contest Is Here!

Hello Metconst!

From the contest ideas page, the Beserker contest (by MetroidNerd#9001) was picked. There is still 1 month left to make something if you haven't already and submit it. More information can be found here.

On another note, the contest ideas have been cleared, in preparation for a future user-committee contest (you may be waiting a while, though!). Feel free to submit some more ideas here.

Contest Ideas
Posted on Jul 05, 2018 by thedopefish

Hi MetConst!

Are you an overachiever, already done with your POST HACK SCRUBS contest entry, and are now wondering what to do with all your free time?

Or maybe you're too lazy to enter because you have a real life or something dumb.

Or perhaps you just aren't feeling this theme, and you wish the next contest would be more interesting.

Well, have I got a deal for you! We now have a public submission page for contest ideas. You know, the thing that was promised back at the beginning of the year. So if you've got the most amazing idea for a contest ever, here is your chance to write it up all professional-like. If yours gets chosen by our Contest Overlords, then you get to run the show. Wow!

You can view the current submissions and create your own by clicking here or by finding the handy-dandy addition to the menu bar at the top.

As with any new feature here, if you run into any bugs or if you have suggestions for how to improve this submission tool, feel free to hit me up on Discord or post to that forum thread linked above.
