January/February

Then-current SRB2 version: v1.09.4

Glaber submitted 10 maps to this contest, all but one of them receiving sub-average scores. However, Daimondus[sic] Zone, also made by Glaber, received a very high score. Despite an enthusiastic reception, Castle Canyon Zone was never included in the official SRB2 rotation because it was considered too big for typically sized netgames.

G. Glutch Village Zone has a bug as a result of having the same map number as CEZ2, which at the time featured a hard-coded secret. Entering a specific sector will cause RedXVI to appear and send players to a room full of Crawla Commanders. To prevent such bugs from happening again, the contest maps were moved to the MAPAx slots from the next contest onwards. Tier was a controversial map, with votes spanning from 2 to 8. Battle Woods Zone was very badly received due to including enemies, some of which had to be killed to move on, and became notorious as an example for what not to do in a Circuit map.

March/April

Then-current SRB2 version: v1.09.4

This contest was the first to place the multiplayer maps in the MAPAx slots. This was done to prevent maps in certain slots from activating hard-coded secrets, which had caused problems in the previous contest. Shifting the maps to unused slots circumvented this issue.

This was the first contest hosted by FuriousFox, who took over from Mystic. Darkmatter Freeway Zone, which won the Circuit division, was the first NiGHTS map ever released to the OLDC.

September/October

Then-current SRB2 version: v1.09.4

The CTF division of this contest was comprised solely of two sub-par rush jobs that were made to prevent the CTF division from being empty. Miles' Beach was a joke level that consisted only of a flat empty room, while OMIGODZCTF, despite its name, was made in earnest. Arid Ruins Zone Act 2, a sequel to a map released in the May/June 2006 OLDC, was intended for Tets' level pack Blue Heaven, but work on the level pack stopped before it could be added. Sandtrap Dunes Zone was later included in Kuja's level pack The Emerald Isles.

Single Player division

  • Arid Ruins Zone Act 2 by Tets – 7.50

November/December

Then-current SRB2 version: v1.09.4

SonicMaster entered seven maps in this contest, all but one of which received scores below 5. This and a similar occurrence in the January/February 2007 contest later prompted a rule change that prevented users from submitting more than one map to each division. Blade's Sapphire Coast Zone Act 1 was intended to be the first act of his level pack Lost Worlds. Lost Worlds was never finished, but Blade would submit many maps intended for it to the OLDC in the following years, many of which were highly acclaimed. A remade version of Sapphire Coast Zone Act 1 would later win the July/August 2010 OLDC.
