Thanks to the CLA Team for pulling through and releasing this:
After discussing with several members of the community, we have decided to completely ban use of the screenshot glitch for every level in every game. All world records and times that used it will be dropped from the leaderboards and current standings.
To further help the ban, Marble Blast Platinum 1.7.11 and above will use PlatinumQuest's current screenshot method, which is to pause the game and take a screenshot before resuming the game. This means that screenshots can still be taken, but they won't actually glitch the game.
In MBG World Record Rampage #5, all levels that previously used the screenshot glitch will be run without it.
We will create a special "Screenshot Glitch" category which will still allow you to showcase the glitch if you wish, but it will not be kept on the leaderboards. For those wondering about the glitch's latest effects, it can be used to collect items such as gems, time travels and other powerups from far away, as seen in this video made by Kalle29.
Hey everyone. Recently a lot of new users have joined MB level building so it seems like a perfect time to host another event, this time a bit unusual one. This event is all about making a level in 48 hours or less. Doesn't matter if it's done in level editor, Quark Constructor, Notepad,if you have just started getting into making levels or you have been doing it for years. If you can make a level, we want to see it. During this event everyone will also have chance to participate in multiplayer testing matches (they will work for singleplayer levels too) where level makers will will be able to receive feedback directly from players and improve their creations . In addition some people will be streaming so it should turn out fun experience for everyone participating. Since this is a jam there will be no winners, however anyone who participates will receive a new sparkly flair on their profile to enjoy.
Event will take place from 11th to 13th of march, (Check your timezone below):
Start: 11th of March 4PM CST (Central standard time US) Click this to check time at your location
End: 13th of March 5PM CST* (Central standard time US) Click this to check time at your location
*event ends at 5pm since America has daylight savings clock turning at 13.03

The Platinum Team has decided to add Paperboy as a graphics designer! He will focus on texture design with PlatinumQuest so that the graphics quality gets bumped up quite a bit! Welcome, Paperboy, to the Platinum Team!
Keep on rolling,
