Names of groups must be unique, and due to a previous group and a name change, The Map Factory already exists.

Plus some confusion due to The Map Machine.

To clear up things a bit...

I tried to get some people together to make some maps.
"The Map Factory", was the tentative name that I chose.
Sailorseal offered to help set up a clan group for us, but...
He went crazy on us, and set the group up, with HIM as founder and leader.
After about 2 min. of his Hitler routine, he had all but killed the group before it even began. and all of my hard work to get some talented people together was wasted.

John, I, and a few others, would like to try again, so, here we are up to date. 8-)

Okay, so jp already told you guys what's up. Based off his suggestion I sent a new e-ticket, and our temporary name is "Mapmakers Guild". If you come up with something cooler, then we'll start a poll or something. ;)

Lol. An acronym might be nice as long as it makes sense and isn't obscene. :lol:

The forum is open now (how's that for quick service?) so let the posting begin. 8-)

I'd like in if you've got another spot. I've always wanted to give mapmaking another go, and maybe this will be the right way for me to be able to do so. :)

Oh yeah, ...So is this our groups home thread ?

John, I had an idea on how to get the ball rolling. We could use this thread to talk about new prospective map ideas. Once the idea has been accepted, we can make a separate thread for each map that goes into production. Anyone can feel free to post in this thread, any ideas, pictures, and comments.

I would like to be able to post pictures, and see if the talented folks among us can make a playable game out of it.

I am going to throw up the Calendar sketch pad again. I think that it will be a nice project to start.

Also, I want to get back on the "Food Chain". I would love to see it be our first quenched map. It would be cool if a turtle was represented on our first quench. (I am sure that lack will appreciate the thought. :D

Insom is in!

Wca and anyone else looking to join, you guys need to go to Control Panel - Usergroups and request membership.

Pork, since you wanted to approve all members, just add the pending members that you want under Control Panel - Usergroups - Manage Groups - Manage Users - Pending Members. If someone's kept waiting for a while (like over a week or so), I'll just add them myself. ;)

All you need to do is go to Control Panel - Usergroups - Manage Groups - Manage Users. Select the pending members (minus the ones you don't approve of... hopefully none) and go to the bottom and select "Approve Member".

Lol no, we have a shortage of ideas. :(

I'll put something out there and see what happens. :)

Sorry I have been A.W.O.L.
I have been trying to make some money on a couple of graphic competition sites. It beats spending all my time here trying to get a map quenched. But that is why I wanted to form this group in the first place. So as to spread out the work among some like minded, aspiring mapmakers. As soon as we get something going I will still be interested in lending my limited time and effort. So lets get with it guys and girls. We have much talent among us, we just need to get some organization started. I can not do this. I just do not have the time. John, I will go along with just about anything that you see fit to get this ball rolling. So, please feel free to organize as you want. If you do not have the time, maybe you could delegate the task to someone else. Just remember the "sailorseal" ordeal, and god forbid you do not make the same mistake that I did. LOL :lol: 8-)
I really think that the Food Chain map is the best candidate for our first project. There is NOT another map like it, and I believe that it would become one of CCs' most populer maps. I have already got the working draft up. Lets see some game play worked out. There is room for 2 or 3 more animals.

Also, I think that labeling should go something like this, as I do NOT want to have to put connecting lines all over the place.
