Description:
So I log in and I see Quirvy and Yaya talking about how there's only 5 minutes left in the comps before they end today. By the time I actually decide to make a last-minute level, I've only got 3 minutes. So I open Electric Box, and I get this super boring video ad that I have to sit through. But while the vid is playing I go in the other tab and load the Upload Level page, and I see that I've only got two minutes left, hence the name of this level.

By the time the ad finished, I was hit with another ad (actually a splash page for EB's parent site), so I load the comps page and get the "Join Comp" page in place. With roughly a minute left, I make a dumb level, beat it, and get the code.

So I refreshed the join-comp page to make sure I wasn't already late. Now here's where I messed up: at 11:59pm, I actually took the time to answer a question Quirvy asked me in the chatbox about the minecraft server. Why? D:

So once I put my level code into my already-prepared new level form, I hit submit, switch to the other tab, refresh, click on my level, and submit it to the comp. But then I get an error telling me that I'm too late. Then I look at the time I submitted this level and it's exactly midnight. Nooooo!!

Having failed to make it on time, this level lost all redeeming value, so I deleted it. Then Yaya complained and I found that I had left the level open in another tab, so here it is, back in all it's glory.

Very good puzzle! At first, I wasn't sure where I should put the pieces, and considering I have spent a good portion of today playing Electric Box, I was paranoid about running across a red herring, so I had to analyze the level future. Ultimately, though, this was a very good puzzle! I enjoyed playing it, and I look forward to seeing more from you.

Judged on it's merits as a puzzle. Also to round out the rates...

no, I made that crappy template puzzle right before I went on vacation because I felt like I needed to make an entry before I left for about a week. Had I had enough time after I came back I would have made Midnight X

Dude, if I knew it was this bad, I would've agreed on deleting it. I thought you would've atleast put SOME effort into this manure pile.

I forgot to mention, that when I originally read Deku's post he had an 8.4/10 and 4/5 difficulty, so, I was like, "Hmm... Did Livio actually manage to come up with a decent cave, or is deku just joking. Better check it out." When I saw how short the code was I kind of figured out it was a joke, but I played it anyways, and I was blown away by it.

I think it also took me around 11 seconds, because I wasn't familiar with the game since it'd been a while since I played it.

I give you 0.1 for difficulty because beating this level requires some knowledge of the game, and I froze up for a second while I had to figure out how to play it again.

Yeah, I figured I'd change my vote, because I don't want it changing the weight.

No, you're obviously unhelpable.

Well, I think this is the all-time, worst level ever posted on the IG.

BTW staff, don't lock this.

Well giving it 0/10 suggests nothing can be worse, and I bet you could make something worse.

That only means that maybe we can't make a level easier than it. I can see ways to make worse levels.
