I would've picked someone else to be a beta tester (no offense to PacPlayer). What I believe people should look for in beta testers is how much they know about what it takes for a level to be high quality. There's two different parts to this. The first is the speedrunners. You want someone who is very skilled at the singleplayer area of Marble Blast so you can get opinions on things like difficulty and replayability.
The other part is for people who like to play eye-appealing and generally well-built levels. You don't want people to play levels that look like they were made by a two year old (cough cough Platform Mayhem cough). Unless you're a master at the level editor like Technostick is, this is one of the reasons why you should learn to use Constructor. Interior quality can also tie to the difficulty part of what a good level looks like.
Oh yeah, and if you haven't figured it out yet, a 6.5/10 is not that good. Many members of the community have set higher expectations. Somewhere around 8/10 at the least.

I will be adding the Bronze,Silver and Gold versions of every level in the mod!
The button for the thing is the Normal "Play" button but with a Crown added at the beggining of it
Basically,these new "difficulties" are the challlenging versions of every level (by challenging i mean some powerups or interiors deleted),basically a remastering of every level

This sounds exactly like what Gerson did in GLC (and GLC2 for that matter).

First player ever to get all of the Awesome Times.

I'm willing to look at it for you, but if it's trash I'll tell you it's trash.

I thought 5/10 was an average mod...

Just going to say from the last time I saw it, the mod looked about 5% finished. If you jumped from that to 95% in that little time, you should seriously rethink making your mod. It's not going to be good if you complete things like that--even the most basic of modifications takes about a year to get done.

Stick to making levels. You'll get critiques and your levelmaking skills will improve.

Honestly I've probably put more effort into a single level than you will have had into this "mod", no one wants to play garbage. Spend your time making good levels.
