All of these descriptions have been put on the map info webpages.

It's a good opportunity to sell your own map!

(Check out cairnswk's descriptions, these are good examples of how to do it)

ASIA and USA were original CC maps. Lack had someone make them for the start. SO they have no "carto" author and their dates are the day CC began.

Classic Shapes and Centerscape were done to replace the original classic (launched with the two mentioned above) and Middle Earth made by Mr. K
The author is not known except by the sig Lynn. But whatever that means.

Yes I know that.

I'm hoping someone can put up a description for them. I can ask lack, but I'm sure he'd be ok if an experienced mapmaker gave a description also.

I would ignore Centerscape for now. Midgard will be done in a couple weeks/months and replace it.

It was a bit of a crazy night... It's quite hard to divide the work up so distinctly, particularly as there was so much overlapping and baton-passing.

How did things go? Well, there was lots of debate between those involved in the process about ideas/concepts, and several rough (and I mean really rough) drafts that floated around for a while... so Ideas-wise, you could attribute all of the recognised contributors.
The first draft that developed into Classic:Art was drawn by mibi, but passed through oaktown, MrBenn and WidowMakers before it was finished.
During the drafting process, all of the contributors helped to develop the idea and ensure that the gameplay was the same as the original Classic... whether this means all of them/none of them qualify for the gameplay I don't know...
I can't remember who started the XML, but I have a sneaky suspicion that yeti_c did the bulk of it, with the relevant support / spellings / centerings coming from whoever was still awake at the time...
