The contest is open to THE ENTIRE PLANET! Just got clearance from legal to say that. :)

(still excludes quebec)

Question about the 'Champion' Badge: If I get the goal piece into the goal, and then it rolls out temporarily, but re-enters, where it proceeds to stay forever, does that count?

Yes, it is a champion so long as it stops in the goal forever.

Oh certainly. I'm convinced my solutions will win. I'm still in the process of tweaking them though, but here they are:

Stuck: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=6438572
Be A Champ: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=6437271
Displacement: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=6436514 (needs lots of tweaking)
Gatekeeper: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=6430125

Don't have a canyon solve yet, it's so hard!! ;)

I did Canyon. Badly, but I did it. Who wants to see? It's not going to win anything, though.

To the Powers that be;

Is it worth having a teaser showing the best score or username for each level in the contest to date? No need for total score, but a teaser as to what the best is for each level would be interesting to see. Thoughts?

Some contests are like this. You can search the forums for Jkhouw1's live leaderboard comp. Having a leaderboard is a totally different dynamic though, because then you know what kind of scores are possible, and it leads to a lot more tweaking of designs and lower scores in general. It's a fun contest, just a totally different feel. Also, if that were the case for this, then Weasel would have to verify all the top scores as they came in, and I'm sure lots of people would submit garbage just to get on the leaderboard.
