since there are two comps, how will the voting work?
Will it be one big poll that holds both contests, or two separate threads?

Yeah, since gimil accepted the centerscape entries we're waiting on him to post that thread... my mistake perhaps for setting the deadline as midnight, gimil-time. :oops:

Alright, now that the maps are posted and folks are looking and voting, it has been suggested that we allow updates. I'm still coming up to speed on the idea and how it would work, but I'm listening. At first I thought edbeard wanted to allow folks time to present their maps prior to the start of voting, but now I'm hearing that we should allow mid-voting changes - as often as one per day - based on the feedback that mapmakers are getting. Am I hearing this right?

I agree that allowing changes at this point would probably result in higher quality maps, but given that we've already begun and that this constitutes something of a rules-change, whatever system we come up with should be agreed to by the mapmakers... if somebody can suggest something quickly I will PM them and see if there are any objections.

I would also like to remind you that any changes at this point requires me to upload and update the images - I don't really want to have to keep checking my inbox every hour to keep up with constant changes. Maybe one change, due by a specific time on Saturday?

Next time I set up a competition this will be on my radar and we can plan for changes in advance.

I don't see a problem with it, though I understand the workload factor for oaktown. I think the competition could benefit from at least 1 update during voting.

Asi it stands, 3 maps have a lot of votes, and look likely to go through, the other 2 are short on votes. I think the competition could hot up if we allowed an update mid-voting, though the rules would have to be set out. I think if people have made the effort of putting together a map, but it hasn't got many votes, they should be given the benefit of the doubt, and allowed an update to woo the crowd (of course, this update should be available to all mapmakers to keep the playing field even).
