I have a new idea for map publishing:
(sorry for my bad English)
There are maps on WarLight, wich can be improved or on wich things are missing.
My idea is:
A few players, who made good maps themself, will look at the map (with or after Fizzer looked at it) and decide what can be done better. Of course on a lot of maps things can be better, but they have to do the things as:
-Size of the map
-maby a few other things.
-They can vote for the map (They vote: Publish it! or Do not publish it, it needs to be improved)
You might think: These things are already done on the Forum
I`ll give you some examples:
<---- no offense, it is a good idea, but the Cheddar cheese is not looking very well and also the Provolone can be improved.
<---- Sorry, but this map is useless.
Quadruel, Yin and Yang, Truel
<---- No place for strategy.
^No offense to all of them.
What will this group of players do?
They contact the map maker if something isn`t right/ can be improved/ it is complete useless
They can`t say this about;
-They (don`t)like the "topic"
Europe or something. It doesn`t matter if you like it or not as long as it is playable.
-How they think about the Map maker
Because of that it is a group, if one of them doesn`t like the maker it doesn`t matter, but if he looks at the map maker he will be removed from the group.
-The map can go on public
only Fizzer can put a map on public and even if the group thinks the map won`t do well, Fizzer can decide if it goes on public or not. This group can however decide a map is not playable and they can report this to Fizzer and Fizzer has something to think about :)
It is a basic idea, it has be improved, but there are 488 maps on WarLight and some of them are rarely played on, so I think something has to be done.
Fizzer, no offense, you are doing great, but I think some active WL players should look at the maps before they go on public. They play WarLight a few times a week (some maby a few times a day) and they know well, what can be improved.
I think the players should be voted to be in this group (Fizzer can also decide who can (`t) be in this group. You can also unvote them if they do something wrong (like they don`t vote for your map because you are Blacklisted by them)
Again sorry for my bad English,
I hope you like the idea and think about it.
