The Mega Man Maker Challenge event is a series of public level creation contests held in Mega Man Maker. These challenges usually had certain criteria for level design and were made to encourage creative usage of assets available within the game's editor. Several judges voted and gave written reviews on the entries, with the winning stage being the one that received the most votes. The winning creators from a challenge were usually offered a prize of some sort at the end of the challenge.
The challenge events were started by then beta tester dolphin who had already done contests in his Discord server, "Let Me Level With You". WreckingPrograms gave him permission to start the event on the Mega Man Maker Official Server. The then fellow beta tester Aze was a co-host for the events. However, due to sexual harassment and abuse of power allegations, dolphin was fired and Aze was the sole coordinator until V1ral joined.
On July 21, 2019, WreckingPrograms alongside other developers and global moderators discontinued the challenge events for many reasons and encouraged the community to take part in fan challenges instead. As a result, the Challenge Coordinator roles on the forums and the Discord server were removed. Additionally, while the Discord server already had a channel for fan challenges (#fan_challenges), a new category was added to the forums for fan challenges.
The challenge event was brought back on June 12, 2021 with NotQuiteHere being reinstated as a challenge coordinator and previous challenge members V1ral and Very Clean Guy being appointed assistant challenge coordinators. NotQuiteHere closed his unofficial Challenge Event server in favor of leading the official events. Turbo Time Trials has been different from other challenges in that the prize is getting the winning level included in the Example Levels and the contest is solely hosted in the Discord server.
