The level cap was already increase from 10 to 20, and 20 levels is already more than the average Mega Man game.

Just share your levels via download link to compressed folder like .rar or other compressed format of your choice.

Servers are already getting very cluttered ever since the new update with Multiple bosses, in the bug fixes section for the new update it says stuff about how there are server issues and to not report certain things on the thread. So no

20 is enough. When I can't submit any level then I'm deleting my old ones (which got forgotten and has low play and like/dislike count).

"Then buy us a fancy new server and pay for it every single month"

-Aze
I totally messed up the quotation but getting an extended server would be costly and tough, especially how the playerbase has expanded a lot since 1.5.

I recently made a mistake regarding that. Looking at it now, populating the servers with different accounts really doesn't seem like a good idea. I'd recommend you do what Royal Guard said regarding level folders and delete and all levels from any alternate accounts.

Probably not. As you may know, our server has actually been given to us by the wonderful people at OneProvider. We currently have no way of increasing storage space on the free server so if you really really want the level limit increased, you may just have to give us an entire server.

I wonder if anyone in the community would actually be willing to donate a whole server to the project.

Why not just do what Royalguard suggested? People can still download the levels to play them and it doesn't cause extra hassle for the developers of Mega Man Maker.

If a person has made over 20 levels just start taking the older ones and making them downloads elsewhere while uploading the newer made levels to the server.

Is installation of a level via separate download very hard? Most content I've encountered similar to this is just drag and drop installation. :\

Should be as simple as downloading the .mmlv level files, extracting if they happen to be in a compressed format (.rar, .7z, .zip, ect.), and moving said .mmlv files to Mega Man Maker's "Levels" folder. Very simple process.
Due to my current inability to play MMM in a satisfactory manner on either of my devices, I will be on hiatus from activity for an indefinite period of time.

It's not, but it's time consuming and we work for free.

Alex and I have been going back and forth on the best way to improve the server for the past few months. RoyalGuards suggestion has come up in our talks, and we're not opposed to that. But we do want to have a long term solution, not some hacked together PoS.

No. As much as we appreciate community support, it would be better if you supported us in other ways. Maybe by commissioning one of our many artists and musicians.

I've got actual server space here, worst case we can use that.

Absolutely right. Which is why I supported Royal Guards idea of separate downloads instead of raising the level cap. Putting more responsibility in the hands of the map makers to facilitate their maps instead of the developers, you developers are already doing a tremendous amount of service as is.
I wasn't suggesting you guys do it, but that individual map makers take responsibility. Much like how PC games have extra levels (and other content) and can be installed via the individual user, not a server based process but individual tinkering. Where an individual hosts on a website and others who want to try the content download and install on their own.

The server is great and a real asset to the game to make things simpler for installing more levels.

The idea of drag and drop level installation, where level files are uploaded to an alternate source (say, mediafire) and users download and install on their own might be a good measure to reduce load on you guys.

Only thing is the less savvy people might break their MMM installs attempting to install levels by hand.. In my experience sometimes even the most basic tasks are difficult to dummy-proof. :P

They could attempt creating some kind of level importer program that you can drag and drop .MMLV files into and the program moves them automatically to Mega Man Maker's "Levels" folder. It might make the process of downloading .MMLV files from other hosting platforms and setting them up, to be a bit less of a hassle for those that are less computer savvy. That said, I'm not that knowledgeable about coding, so I have no idea how difficult such a thing would be to implement for those developing Mega Man Maker.
