      Overall these are some great ideas! If I were to run one of these competitions, I would probably implement most if not all of them.

      I really like the daytime practice ideas! I got way into meditating a while back and would have been racking up the points!

      I also find the "first time ever" points interesting because it might skew points toward beginners and make them higher earners compared to intermediates and experts who already have experienced many dream control actions. Then again the gap between expert and intermediate/beginner is so massive that it probably won't matter too much. It would still be fun to watch that play out.

      Drawings would be fun too! It would be a good reason to get back into the habit. I always wondered how many famous paintings are inspired by, or are direct re-creations of dreams. I did use some AI in the past for dreams too, which could bring in a fun dynamic. I know I'd be more engaged to read the dreams of others if drawings/AI were present more often.

      Score improvement bonuses are a cool idea. I already track my own scores 'cause honestly I don't think I'm touching expert level points anytime soon... but it is nice to see personal progress. When I saw some of the expert scores for the first time (and the level of control it implied), it kinda blew my mind.

      One thing I'd suggest is that a false awakening bedroom probably shouldn't count as a recurring place (too common). Maybe we need more definition for what a recurring place counts as, and also, what separates that from a realm? My understanding is that a realm is a place one has created (like a dream palace) that one regularly returns to by choice, versus a recurring place is somewhere you mind tends to send you. Points could be awarded based on noticing the recurring place, or choosing and then visiting the realm.

      I was wondering about this one this morning actually. The lines definitely blur a bit! I like this suggestion though.

      Definitely love all these! I especially like the drawing one, I'd love to see visual representations of people's dreams. I can't think of any suggestions at the moment, but if I do I'll post them here.

      I love all of the ideas!

      My suggestion is to expand a little bit "Dream Recall" section by adding "High detailed recall" that give additional 0.5p per non-lucid dream (so high detailed dream fragment have 1p, and high detailed NLD have 1.5p).

      Manei has been saying for years that she doesn't like how comps always focus on just the end results and ignore giving credit to all the practice and work that goes into lucid dreaming. If the function of the competition is to work as motivation and self improvement rather than just executing dream control tasks. We were actually planning to draft and propose something very similar to this for a future comp but I'm glad to see we've been beaten to the punch. Here's to the winter comp.

      I always had reservations of calling opposing players "enemies". Makes it sound like we're in some kind of death match. We should change "Enemy Tasks" to something less hostile, like "Opponent Tasks" or "Rival Tasks".

      What if we added some kind of dream currency? Like gold coins or something - if you find them in your dream you can add them to your score.

      That might be a different game idea altogether though - more of an ongoing thing, I don't know.
