A tool to allow the foreman to upload graphics and xml is tricky to implement because it would have to check for a lot of things that I check for by hand (by using comparison software to show differences between old and new xmls). For example, if a change in territory order slips though, it could permanently screw up many games.
You couldn't just let the foreman check those things? You should trust your own staff at least that much...
Lack does trust all his Volunteers and staff, but mistakes can be made. Right now, Nobodies and the other C.A.s perform checks, and then Lack independently runs his own to make sure everything is in working order. It ensures that your games won't be messed up. Eventually he would like to implement a tool that can do all the additional checks he does.

Well, we've been hearing about this web developer guy for about a year now. When is he going to actually materialize?
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to see you posting here and I'm glad that you're at least aware of the problems. But we in the foundry have been hearing so many promises about so many things that are still "in progress" or "waiting" or "just around the corner"...
What I'm saying is, actions speak louder than words.
We hear you (the collective). We'll have more news.
