never take qwert's words literally. his english skills aren't that great and if he said he was banned then he probably meant he was driven out.
qwert is a difficult map but once you learn to work with him you discover he's a very dedicated map maker that takes his maps very seriously.

Well DiM, you weren't here during the Pelo wars debacle...

"Taking maps seriously" doesn't, in my book, include abandoning a map in beta for 6 months, refusing to do a simple update to it that was asked to get the map out of beta, so that eventually a cartographer had to do the update for him just to get it out of beta...

qwert does take his maps very seriously and the amount of work he puts into research and accuracy is immense.
i don't know what happened during the pelo wars but i'm sure qwert had his reasons. he may have exaggerated reactions some times but in many cases he is right.
i just look at pelo wars map and compare it to atrocities like hive, gilgamesh or monsters and i understand qwert's frustration when he's asked to change minute details.

DiM is right, maybe a day qwert could come back. ;)

As I recall, the only thing that needed to be changed was a legend element, uninvolved with the accuracy of the map itself, and only regarding its clarity. It wasn't a case of anyone asking for him to compromise his map's look, it was just the straw that broke the camel's back as best I can tell.

precisely.

i'm pretty sure the people asking for the legend thing to be changed were right but qwert was probably fed up when he saw his map being constantly nitpicked while other maps which were obviously of a lower quality strolled through the foundry unstopped.
the saddest part is that this double standard still is very visible.

Major Command, a Risk site run by mibi where you can find most of the old foundry crew. (the ones who were called here the elite O:) )
A day they preferred to create their own club to make maps (privately) and play. I miss some of them (Incandenza, the.killing.44 to quote two names), some others not at all, specially after reading some things around. But nvm, I enjoyed the time spent with them all and there's no reason to force/ask people to stay in a place that don't like anymore. ;)

I for one think the foundry can do without the negative atmosphere created by some of them...
