A group of forum topics with levels hosted by free file hosting sites is not an easy nor quick way to find and download quality levels! I've therefore decided to create an unofficial Spelunky Level Database website. The levels are all hosted on my server, and I am planning on adding various search and sorting parameters to the database.

Currently, anyone can submit levels to it through the automatic form. I'll eventually add user accounts, and levels will be tied to that user account, allowing for editing and updating, etc. I'm also planning on adding the ability to comment on each level, screenshots, and maybe ratings (but ratings always turn out to be useless at best, harmful at worst which is why I'm only thinking of adding them). The current shell of a website is only an hours worth of work, but the main thing for now is that levels can be submitted. I'll be steadily adding features as I see fit, and as requested.
Ready for registering accounts, uploading levels, and commenting!

That said, if anyone here would like to help with creating some Spelunky themed graphics for the website, go ahead! While I will eventually make the whole website prettier, graphics are not my strong suit.

Progress Update:
User Accounts added
Commenting added
Level Authorship is tied to user accounts
Prettier layout with a random background
Screenshots added
Search Functionality added to level list
Editing your own levels added

I have added in user accounts (level submissions are now tied to them, although I haven't added in editing levels yet), and commenting on levels!

Also, in the near future, I would like to have a couple of moderators for the database, for comments and removal of bad submissions and such.

Edit:
If I set up a separate level submit form to do so, is there anyone here willing to go through and add old levels from people who are not around anymore? (I wouldn't know who falls under that category, and I would prefer for people to choose to add their own levels. I do want to include as many levels as possible in the database though, and people who have moved on aren't going to.)

Hey, it's fully ready for people to register and upload their own levels now!

All that's missing are proper search/sort functions for the level list, and editing your own levels later, but I'll get around to adding that.

You should try to get Derek's permission to make it the official website. And someone should post the link somewhere on the spelunky wikia page. (If its not already)

So, awesome work, this will be helpful. Smiley

Also, this should be stickied. Cheesy

Busier than you can imagine.  I will sign up at some point, though!  Maybe when TLSMV is finished...

Whoops, sorry! There was a bug that made screen shots non-optional, which was why it was saying "File Upload Error", but it's working properly now.

And go ahead, upload any of your levels you want to. It needs an obscenely long level set!
