I hate to see it stall with the amount of progress you've made on it, and I was really looking forward to writing the xml, because I think this could truly be an instant classic.
I think that's a bit rude moving it or any other map to recycling bin at this point simply because it is time to do it.
The last few months we've had no end of striking and lack being away so there has been no movement in the foundry at all. i am still waiting for maps xml to be checked over and that's been a patient end for some time now.
I would be very peed off is this happens even though it is foundry policy, it was never part of foundry policy to go on strike over someone's politicial issues nor have down time simply because the boss decided to do something and not bother keep the foundry going.
Up until the end of the strike i managed to keep things going with my maps, even though everyone else decided to down tools.
Now because i am busy with RL stuff, i get penalised by having the maps moved again to recycling bin.
I think you're going to have to strike some balance here.
It was time to do it almost two weeks ago, I just hadn't yet done it to give you the benefit of the doubt, and with the understanding that the foundry had been moving slower than usual lately, and because I want to see great maps get made. The only reason I said I might move it now is because you indicated it could be until December until you work on it again. You certainly can't expect to have your map sit in here for three more months with no progress being made on it.
But, you do make some valid points about the xml checking, and the creeping slowness of the FF these days, so I will go ahead and leave this be for another couple of weeks. Didn't mean to ruffle any feather cairns.
