I know the rules state that we can only enter things started with the haxxy contest.

But am I allowed to combine it with older things and just clearly announce on the OP what is part of the haxxy and what is not?

Am I allowed to steal code (with credit) from something much older?

Also;
im just going to exploit a loophole and just say that i started gg2 insmod v3.0 today.

Does this mean if we add a new feature, we can submit something?

You can do it, but you gotta perform a maniacally evil laughter while combining it.
Either that or I'm not counting it.

If you copypaste code into vanilla gg2, it's fine.
If you change something in existing mod, it's not so fine.

Wait.
This means if I port an existing mod, it's not so fine?

What if I take the vanilla, make something new (a server mod), cram an existing mod inside (bots), and deliver the whole thing as one package?

That's what I said, this is fine.
As long as the main idea is new.

Ohhh...server mod + bots. Sounds like a campaign sort of thing.
