Im with you, Banana... its an improvement of the system, and its a good idea...
I like the Middle East map, and I would love it with better graphics... But, if I was lack, I would say "sorry, you have to make this look nicer"... If the map was not posted? Well, surely the maker could improve it, or another player could do an even better job, we dont know. Its nothing compared to Indochina map, that is still unfinished, by the way. If we will have a committee, no way to get things like that again... "Ah, but I love it" - maybe it could be better, no?
The committee will point the problems, suggest some things... something that could pass, like the fact Battledome is alike to Crossword, and people have little interest. My comment about little interest was the 9th in the topic, and the map was done to be sent... So, I think the purpose is produce a greater reflexion and be more aware to some great errors... The committee will not design the maps, definitely.
Im with you, Andy.
