I think I'm going to ask some players if they want to be judge. But feel free to nominate yourself for the position. I need 2 good strategists and 2 good mapmakers.

As the 2nd, shortly to be the first biggest map maker and one of the longest running Warlight players here I would like to be a judge.

If you need to state your self-proclaimed reputation, that reputation doesn't exist, Skunk.

Using that logic, those who send in a resume have no resume.

I think Incaman and Skunk both belong on the judge panel. RA would also be a good judge.

Except that logic isn't supposed to be applied to resumes.

rep·u·ta·tion
ˌrepyəˈtāSH(ə)n/
noun
noun: reputation; plural noun: reputations

the beliefs or opinions that are generally held about someone or something.
"his reputation was tarnished by allegations that he had taken bribes"
a widespread belief that someone or something has a particular habit or characteristic.

If you have to post about your reputation it doesn't exist because it's not widespread. One of the characteristics of having a reputation means that people generally think that of you. A resume is a summation of skills and an a declaration of an objective. It has nothing to do with the general opinion everyone has of you, rather showing that you meet the criteria that the job poster is looking for.

Yes and no, dictionary definitions and the way the words are used interchangeably in conversation can impact the overall meaning of a statement.

Arun said Skunk was stating his "self-proclaimed reputation" when in fact he was sharing his resume and that by doing so his reputation, which was a resume, did not exist. I think by that logic, stating your resume would effectively nullify your resume's validity or existence. Perhaps I should have said reputation instead of resume so as to be clear, but that would have sounded repetitive and effectively been pointless to say in the first place.

Clearly Arun is not Japanese. It was not uncommon for Samurai to shout their ranks and achievements (i.e. self-proclaimed reputation/resume) on the battlefield to entice worthy opponents to challenge them. I think Arun's logic would prove wasted on them.

Also, reputation can be part of a resume, particularly when you have made several notable achievements which haven't been heard of for whatever reason. A resume is not only a summation of skills, but also a chance to boast of ones own reputation. In a global world where someone from Europe applies for a job in the US it is pivotal to boast of one's own reputation (though backing it up with references helps of course).

But yeah, I get where you're coming from Lolowut. I just think calling out on someone for sharing their achievements is tasteless (unless its Gnuffles).

But you must rise the facts to the attention of others so that reputation can form and become widespread. After something can't be well known by all until someone tells it to begin with.

Semantics aside, and back on topic:

Ursa Luna; obviously well rated, yet you hardly ever see anyone actually play it. My favourite map.

I rember it being all the range when it first came out, but now it's like it has dropped off the system. Good suggestions, keep them coming!

Rule:(full list of rules and details will be posted on Saturday)

However, nominations per week have been limited to 6. First 6 nominations will be counted.

@Skunk, making the most maps doesn't give you reputation, just a record ;) Not that it stops you from being a judge, I actually already have a team of judges ready to go. I'm sorry.

How are you going to deal with avoiding bias? Defer voting if one of the judge's maps is in the offing?

If I was a judge, I would always vote against my own maps to avoid bias but that's just as biased as the alternative.

The only truly unbiased thing to do would be to say that any judge with a map in the nominations doesn't get a vote.

That is also a reason why Skunk wouldn't make a prudent choice for judge, as he has so many maps he probably wouldn't get to vote most weeks.

Perhaps: you have a selection of substitute judges (actually including Skunk) you can fill in the gaps in your panel on those occasions.

This week, I can already tell you that Apollo did not vote for his own map.

If there are enough judges anyway, I don't think it's a problem if a judge whose map is nominated, does not vote that week (or just doesn't vote for his or her map), so I'm currently not seeing a problem.

I think of the two options it is important that they do not vote. If Red dead redemption was made by someone else for instance then Apollo may well have voted in its favour, and the outcome could be affected.

Also: Can the maps that have been nominated this week but do not win be re-nominated for the subsequent week? If not, then how long a break is required? If yes then how will you stop the nominations list being filled up with the same maps over and over again?

Sorry for playing devil's advocate, I'm quite sure you're already working through the fine print.

Fair point, it will be discussed. I think that if a mapmakers map is nominated he cant vote. Even though most likely everyone wouldn't vote for their own map anyway...?

Full list of rules will be posted tomorrow with the first weeks result. So you can ask questions after that.

Agreed! This is a great idea. I've never even seen some of the maps that have been nominated, so it'll be fun to try some of them out.

Map of the week #1:

1.Dead Frontier http://warlight.net/Map?ID=5723 - By Tenemide. With a total of 12 votes. A quote from Math Wolf (a judge):
Great concept, really stands out among other maps. The grid to easily find back the locations of different buildings is a nice find as well. Too bad the AI doesn't pose much of a fight in the scenario.


2.Red Dead Redemption http://warlight.net/Map?ID=13590 - By Apollo. With a total of 11 votes.

3.Estonia and its counties http://warlight.net/Map?ID=15725 - By Aldehyde. With a total of 7 votes.

Joint 3rd. 3 Planets http://warlight.net/Map?ID=4278 -By Ottaman. With a total of 7 votes.

Honourable mentions: Philippines Big and Paris-St.Petersburg

Rules to follow on first page... As of Sunday, you can start nominating.
