When the Proboards very briefly introduced an upvote-downvote system for posts, this user conducted a "social experiment" which involved asking for downvotes and upvotes, and seeing how willing the community was to oblige in either case.
When the creator of this promising-looking but dead mod decided to revive it by themselves, there was skepticism as to how they would continue without the help of their top programmer. They responded: "I've been learning C++ for the past year - you probably know TorqueScript is basically C++."
Weather gets it with alexnico! Protip: if you see the word "this" in a jeopardy clue, pay attention! That's what I'm asking for.
Custom Levels for $200
After finding out that this series of custom levels had been "plagiarized", the creator of the series posted the now infamous quote (censored for our 13-year-old audience): "Funny, cause I don't ever remember you asking for [...] permission."
The process of fixing a bug in this level led to the infamous quote from Matan: "THAT IS NOT A CORNER CORNER that is above the god damn lowest floor of the entire level and i asked if this was bottom bottom and this isnt bottom bottom this is a SLOPE HIGHER THAN THE BOTTOM BOTTOM honestly ppl".
That really was bs to find out because everyone had me searching for a completely different spot.
"matan, now i get what you meant a few years back when you said that "the level in mbg is beyond me" after the last rampage i noticed things were insane, and now i truly feel that too" - Dushine, 2015.
An eager tester for this dead mod, which was still in very early stages at the time, was warned by Threefolder that testing is a lot of work, and not "just playing the mod before everyone else". His response: "OK Gosh why you have to be so mean ThreeFolder no affiance".
(remember, I want the name of the mod, not the name of the tester.)
MB Mega is correct! Threefolder jumps up into second with $2000, but not enough to catch the runaway winner, Nature Freak with $2800!
It's up to you now, NF, whether you want to host the next round, or leave it up to the first person who volunteers. Whoever becomes host should pick five new categories (not necessarily Marble Blast themed), and be ready to come up with 25 questions in total (either on the spot or ahead of time), one for each difficulty in each category. Again, make sure you'll be active and up to the task, to justify my hesitant decision to not just host all the rounds.
The host can just list their categories in their reply to this post, and I'll continue to periodically maintain the first post in this thread with the standings and the categories that are still left.
To keep things fair (so that there's no downside to hosting, and no upside to asking impossible questions to stay in the lead when you're hosting), everyone's cash earnings/losses will be reset after each round. We start again at $0 - good luck, everyone!
Despite creating and releasing three polished MBG-style custom levels and receiving zero public feedback, this player has never bumped his level thread to gain responses, such that many other community members are unaware of his ever creating any levels.

This marble-blast type game saw its first speedrun video uploaded by a certain community member soon after its release, causing the game's creator to comment that "I noticed you move diagonally a lot. If you're doing that to move faster, [game] doesn't have that bug."
