I don't think I have thanked anyone throughout this process, so now is the perfect time to do it.
Thanks to anyone who opened the thread, those who voted, people that posted indifferently, negatively, positively and especially constructively.
Special thanks goes out to my buddy who was with me from before I posted the awful version where the map originally started and gave me feedback all the way 'till the very end. I look forward to helping you on your map if/when you decide to go through with it.
I can honestly say I'm proud to have my map associated with the other maps that have been quenched today. So a big congrats from me goes out to all of them as well. This was a long and tiring process, but it's possible I may put myself through all this again. Until then, thanks.
