Problem Levels

All levels submitted for CCLP3 were reviewed before the start of voting, and only those that appeared to meet the eligibility criteria were included in the voting. After voting began, the community and staff members discovered that a few levels had some problems which had been overlooked earlier. Those levels are listed here.

Please report any other problems that you find to the newsgroup. Any errors in the information below should also be brought to the notice of the staff.

Fixable Levels

The table below lists the levels that were found to have a problem that could be fixed. In some cases, the problem has already been fixed, and voters should download the latest version of that set. Other levels have not yet been fixed, and their designers are requested to do so at the earliest. Till then, voters should vote on the level as if the problem did not exist.

Designers must announce any fixes they make to their levels at the newsgroup. No changes other than fixes are allowed, and the fix must not significantly alter the primary intended solution of the level.

Levels with a 'mud' background have major issues such as being unsolvable, significantly unequal and/or clearly busted. Levels with a 'gravel' background have minor inequalities, rare busts or acceptable alternate solutions. After the completion of voting, if any of these levels have been voted into CCLP3, but have not yet been fixed, the ones with major issues will stand to be removed from consideration.

Some issues that have been reported, but not yet confirmed, are listed below with question marks. If you can confirm whether a particular issue does or does not exist (especially if you're the designer of that level), please inform the staff.
