I don't know, I'm not the chief registrar.
But if you changed your mind sign up NOW not tomorrow :)

@overraider: here's what Scott said in a previous post -"OK last chance folks! Sign up or miss out, we close the registration booth at the end of tomorrow (16th).
Building commences on the 17th."

mugs, I know what EssGee said, but allowing access for registrants by now (few hours before midnight UTC) confused me a bit...

The thing is that on one hand I will have more free time during Jan-Feb but on the other hand why not to keep on with my own current project which is going quite well?
Then there is another thing that Persia is not my favourite location but the first custom level I ever played was Babylon is Fallen. With this game I entered into the TRLE world so why not to create one with such theme? And also why not to register now and not to regret it later rather than not registering and regret it later?

And I`ve been also thinking about taking a players competiton/reviewing this time....

I don`t know yet heh but still have time to decide :D

You can make such decision in three hours?
Gosh I wish I had this talent. I made four architecture variants already.
Massive effort... and in the end I'm not sure if I'll use ANY of them :-P

I think you have much greater chance in builder comp than player comp :)

OverRaider based on what you've just said I would say the answer is clear. If you're not totally into Persia then players role may give you a better appreciation for it. Work on your current project and get that finished. Five years ago if you said to me that Persia was the theme I would have been first on that registration list because I love it. But now I just don't have time. So even though I am very tempted to register I won't.
But the decision is up to you and the clock is ticking

I always thought it's better to register than not to do so.
Basing on what you two just said I shouldn't have registered.
But I want to try, and if I fail my idea can be taken by someone else.
This way the concept doesn't totally lose chance of being developed.

And let's be honest: do I know what will happen until March? No.

Not really...I couldn`t decide in 29 days 21 hours so the remaing hours/minutes are time to decide, but that`s just me I usually do that in real life as well, leaving everything to last minute :lol:

That`s only half true,I wouldn`t say always, because in my case I would loose the chance for player comp in case of failing to build a level
But thanks for encouraging me...naaah you know what? I will not make any decision, I pick up 2 small sheets of paper and write yes on one and no onto another one, close them, mix them up and choose decisive one to open :)

Like in Charlie Charlie challenge? Watch out with this stuff... I wouldn't trust THAT at all :D I would say if you open that paper and immediately regret what it contains, that is your real clue.

I know it's too late for this competition, but a Danish humourist Storm P. once suggested, that one should flip a coin about it. When the coin was in the air, one would suddenly know, what outcome one hoped for. Decision made. :)
