    If it's the one I looked at yesterday, there's what, signs at the start and at the end and that's the whole storyline? That's nowhere near a long enough story.

    This is not what we are looking for. This has been what, your third or fourth attempt at getting parkour builder? If you want it that much, you'll need to make some changes:
    • Add more terraforming NOT world edit. (It's obvious that you rely on w/e a lot.)
    • Try to take up the entire plot and be resourceful of your given space. In my opinion, twisty turny routes are the most efficient.
    • Actually develop on your story. Don't make it like movies or books or TV shows or anything. Just from your mind. (I sometimes just take my random thoughts/dreams and work them into something.)
    • Don't overdose on the signs and don't be too shy with them. A good story will have to be told with multiple signs. All you have is 2 at the start and 2 at the end.
    • Add visually appealing aspects to your map. It just looks like sandstone walls, quartz blocks, etc...
    • Make the requirement of restarting or going back to checkpoints believable. At times in this parkour, the reset fall is just 1 block from the ground. Make it a deep pit or something like that. A 1 block drop wouldn't hurt a fly.
    • Actually take time and effort into making your parkours. Sometimes, it will take weeks for me to finish something I'm working on.

    Another thing: Don't rely on having friends tell you it's 'good.' Often that causes 2 things.
    1) It raises your ego so when/if you are denied, it hurts even more.
    2) It leads you into a false sense of confidence and blocks you from taking suggestions and actually improving.

    The harsh reality is that the things our 'friends' tell us are said behind a nice face; they're going to say, In fact they have to say that is looks nice or they're going to look like a terrible friend. Also friends often don't fully understand what level you are competing on, so they give you praise even when it isn't up to par. I'm not saying re-evaluate your friends, but just don't lock yourself in to what they say, especially when you're building at a higher level. I'm saying all this from first-hand experience- the only way to improve sadly is criticism, but it's for the best.
