Why don't you like change?
Everything changes, my friend. You can either fight it and be miserable, or go along with it and try to influence it to the direction that suits you best.
Omnia mutantur, nihil interit.
First of all, just because you work hard on something, doesn't mean it's worth the effort. Par example: You slave for hours on a cake and it flops. Are we to commend you for your work? No.
As well, just because you do this for free, you volunteered for it. If you don't' like criticism, then don't volunteer.
What I cannot appreciate is joining a Classic Art/Shapes game
I joined a map in which territories were touching, not something I'd look at in an American Airlines magazine.

The original Classic map had borders instead of connectors alright.
Then it had to be replaced in a couple of hours' time, so Classic Shapes came to be. For those who wanted a map with some sort of theme, Classic Art was added.
Now the plan was to make a new Classic map that actually looked like the world. To avoid copyright issues with Hasbro, CC has opted for points connected by lines, like Classic Shapes. I think they have made a very smart choice there, which will hopefully ensure the existence of CC without legal issues.
I collect that you just hate these connected-dots-style maps, however smart it was to make this one. Yet if you'd be able to set aside that hate, you'd see this is NOT a bad map. It is very well made and beautiful (at least, the non-dimmed version of it - read up in the thread). I hope you're enough of a CC'er to admit that.

I don't like this new map, that's clear.
But I won't join it. I'd like the play my games out on the maps I joined.

This is the third thread in which I have read this incorrect statement - I'm only responding again in case someone else does not see the correction.
SoC members see the exact same map as everyone else, not Shapes. However in addition to the city names, the letter/number names from shapes are placed on the map. This was done because the SoC has already written strategies using the Shapes names, and they will continue to do so because it is faster and easier for them.
If anything it makes the map more confusing (IMO) since there are two sets of names for each territory. The city names are used in the gamelog for both versions of the map.
But really, a lines system for maps makes more sense, in my opinion. We just need to get used to it.
