    Minecraft's intended age demographic is largely 7+ to 13+ yet there are still builders (of varying ages) who gobsmack me.

I built my first two WOTDs with less than 10 WLs each, and while they both look terrible, they were creative and fun. WOTDs should not be a hand-out, that is why we are making this argument for the change. Should we just give out trophies and make kids feel good for putting together a piece of crap that many times they know is not of high quality?

    Also, what type of comment is that? I know the game is mainly full of kids, and it is a game after all. Does that mean we should suddenly stop caring and let everything go to crap? Think about it - this game relies on the players.
    The fact is that a world doesn't really have a chance to win WOTD if it doesn't look good.

    Did you read the comment? They are not about the renders! You don't need a high budget to be creative. Creativity has many different definitions...stories, how parkours are structured, use of doors, little things. And no, many times they do not try their best. As I've said, think about it.

    Some of my favourite worlds were built on low budgets and looked like ass. But they were creative, which made them fun.

    Trying your best does not guarantee you a victory. It may sound harsh, but it's the reality.

    Uh...have you seen the past 300+ WOTDs? And if you genuinely believe that, then it is an issue on the judging side of things - WOTDs aren't simply about the looks of it.

    Level design is all about mixing practical elements with aesthetically pleasing concepts so that the world plays nicely and looks nice. Basing final judgement on appearance solely is not great, and though it may be evident in current WOTDs, I vouch to have that changed. WOTW allows more time for judgement.

    Devs don't have the time to look through and go to each and every world. that's why the render and description matters. Even with Wotw, I bet they would still just pick worlds last minute.

    That is why we are suggesting WOTW...also why people are mentioning have other people select the world.
    I don't know how you see it, but at this point your responses are just totally contradicting your arguments and looking bad.

    No offense Lyve, but you're introducing your idea like it's the one thing that would save all of the wotd problems. In my opinion, the thing that would solve problems regarding wotds would be better judgement on the mod's part, but still keep them DAILY.

    I agree with this, more competition - means more "woah, I think I need to do better to win the trophy". Most likely be a challenge to all Epic Quest go-ers since with this change, they will end up try making a good world. You can't say "most people playing Growtopia are kids", so what? Let their imagination wild free, WOTD's are not just how the world looks - but the fun in creating and challenging other people, moreover, the fun done inside the world which is also a big plus when picking WOTDs.

    Again...another great comment. I'm an old and experienced player. I know changing the WOTD to WOTW won't change everything but it is certainly a start - this is a change that is necessary and has been dragged out for way too long. Quit making judgments and start looking at facts.

    Wow.. I'm sorry that I'm not the best at making arguments but I'm just trying to protect my opinions. Clearly not good enough to meet your standards.
