I have to convert the link to the project to a modded player link since it wasn’t live yet.

Btw, for this comp, are we also allowed to link to our favorite projects via Open Project? Just for future reference.

This sounds cool!
I have a couple questions though:

What is a custom title?
Is it that grey text to the right of, say @/SilverSong’s user?
(If so that sounds epic!)

What do you mean by memories?
I’ve barely been on a month, so I don’t know anything about previous comps.

just memories in general!! go with whatever comes in your mind, we want to be as general as possible

yep, it’s the gray text next to your username.

8 Likes

Yep, that’s basically what a title is. You can also earn a title based on your certain badges (some will say “you can use this badge as a title”)

Ok, thanks!
Both responses were very helpful!
I’d better get to coding!
