    Welcome to the master list of Creation Challenges. This thread was inspired by the original Level 1 Remake challenge and the draft attempt at spawning new challenges.

    RULES (updated 1 Feb '17)
    1. Please discuss challenges in the Discord server channel called #challenges_talk (or at least with a moderator in a PM) prior to posting below;
    2. Only post worthy challenges, each as a separate post below, and a Moderator will update this first post with the running list of open challenges;
    3. Anyone who wants to participate in the challenge should simply "like" the post with the challenge, create a level according to the rules of the challenge, and tag their level with the appropriate challenge number (example: challenge1, challenge2, etc.);
    4. Any creator can have any number of entries, but if they have more than one, they should specify their favourite to be included in the challenge summary (if written);
    5. After about two to three weeks, the poster of the challenge should post a summary of the entries to date along with some commentary on how everyone fared;
    6. After a summary has been posted, anyone can still create a level according to the challenge and tag it accordingly, but understanding that they may not get mentioned;
    7. Anyone wanting to see all the entries in a challenge can go to the Levels page and put in the appropriate tag in the "Search Tags" field box (or amend this URL: http://mekoramaforum.com/media/tags/challenge1/ with the number of the challenge at the end).

    OPEN CHALLENGES
    1. "challenge1" - Remake the original Level #1 - "Crash Course." (Care of @FabianS, 23/06/16)

    2. "challenge2" - Make a level without tricks/exploits, without R bots, and without metal (brown) blocks (draggables, fences, etc.) except for the ball and the win. (Care of @meko, 11/01/17)

    3. "challenge3" - Remake one of your own levels, but use an online random number generator to pick the level for you (example, if you have 15 levels, set the generator to pick a number between 1 and 15, if it comes up with 3, you have to remake your third level). (Care of @meko, 15/01/17)

    4. "challenge4" - Make a level with no bots (no B and no Rs), but one that does include all the other blocks (i.e. the level must include at least one stone block, stone pillar, wedge, stair, metal block, metal pillar, half-pillar, draggable, rail, slider, motor, fence, ball, brick, grass, eye, zapper, win, and water). (Care of @Logo, 25/01/17)

    5. "challenge5" - Make a level using only R-bots, the eye, and metal-based blocks (metal block, metal pillar, half-pillar, draggable, rails, slider, motor, fence, zapper, win, and ball). Thus you cannot use a B-bot, stone-based blocks, grass, and brick blocks. (Care of @Pds, 30/01/17)

    6. "challenge6" - Make a level with a surprising, shocking, or unexpected ending with the use of at least one mechanism. (Care of @Logo, 4/02/17)

    7. "challenge7" - "Build a walking robot that moves without rotating its legs like wheels." (Care of @Martin Magni, 20/02/2017 - as discussed in Discord #suggestions)

    8. "challenge8" - Remake the original Level #2 - "Run of the Mill." (Care of @HackedUp, 17/03/17)

    Challenge #1

    Back before challenges were even in vogue, @FabianS noticed a pattern and decided to ask whether it would be fun to challenge others to follow along. Here is the thread with his ask and some of the submissions that resulted. The challenge is: "make a new version of level 1!"

    [Note, ideally this post would be written by @FabianS himself, but in the interest of time, I have assumed the honours.]

    Challenge #3 is to remake an own random level(I'll make it more accessible to all, so the number will be between 1 and 10). Search "online random number generator" on google, the number that will appear (x) is the (x °) level that has to be remaked. (If the number is 3, it is necessary to remake the 3rd level)
