I've gone through and stickied all the maps that have been given their Gameplay Stamp, so that these will appear at the top of the Main Foundry. Once maps receive their Graphics Stamp, they'll be promoted to an Announcement at the very top of the page before making the transition to the Final Forge.
After a little bit of time looking at it.... I like the concept, but think the process should be reversed. Maps new to the Foundry working on Gameplay should be at the top as announcements and maps on there way to the Forge should be regular threads towards the bottom of the page. Maps that need the exposure and feedback should be at the top of the page. Maps that are pretty much on their way to the Forge don't need a lot of exposure, they're for the most part done, they'll receive they're final scrutiny in the Forge.
I just think over time maps that currently have been working on Gameplay are towards the bottom of the page and they're work may be stunted because of their position. I know it's just a short scroll down, but most folks don't do it, they look at what's on TOP.
I know it probably isn't feasible to put 10-15 threads in Announcements, but just look at those maps towards the bottom of the page, their production has slowed since the change, and while I know not all maps make it through the process there are maps being updated down there and they aren't being commented on.
