I don't think there is a need for updating during round-1. Personally - I'm not voting based on a finished map, but a theme or style. I know there's going to be a round-2, where the updates will be applied based on feedback received so far. I really don't think allowing updates will change anything - I can almost guarantee that it will not change my vote.

Since the accomplished map makers were not in the central america comp, we could have been asked (PM'd) to provide feedback before the deadline. I would have looked at someones map and given some critique.

I think any map with a certain number of votes (above 10? 20? Some number we decide based on the total number of votes) should progress to round 2 and have a chance to make changes in between.

They are supposed to be posted today.....
I think its about 3:12 PM where he lives, so maybe he just hasn't had his CC-time yet.
Most of his posts around here are closer to 5pm his time, so I'm guessing the images will be up in an hour or two....

No sign of life in the gimil camp :-(

For what it's worth, I'm not sure there's a need for mid-round voting, particularly as it is a phased competition. Think of it as an early X-factor round, where your voting to save your favourites, rather than to pick an outright winner.

Any changes that occur mid-vote are always going to be contentious, as it might give prefernece to the mapmaker with the most spare time, rather than the best idea/draft, as people may be more likely to respond to something they can see devleloping?

Perhaps for a future competition, we could set a deadline for initial submissions. Phase 1 could then be a non-voting period for responding to feedback etc. and then we could have the voting round(s)?

just now reading back on the entire conversation for this (its difficult reading it from 2 threads.... #-o ) and i keep my earlier statement that i like the idea, but i like someones idea that the contestants should be allowed to make one update to their projects.

That's just weird. And off-topic. The graphics CA is warned for spamming. ;)

Will there be anyone available to review maps before the second round begins? Both gimil and Incandenza made themselves available for the first round. Just checking to see if this is above board, and if anyone is available, as I think the competition could only benefit from private feedback during the process.
