Can you back up that argument? Or are you bullying?

I think reading through the posts would actually support his claim that no-one is taking your position. Although I don't think locking it is necessary just yet....

Any recommendations to change a map MUST go through its thread in the foundry. Discussion can happen in GD, but it will not have any bearing on how the final map will look. Symmetry, if you feel this strongly, I suggest you go to the maps thread and leave your thoughts there :)

Play nice and have a great morning/day/afternoon/evening/night (depending on your location)

I can back up the argument that the discussion is over. No one in this thread has taken your position. Erego, if you are not willing to discuss my perfectly reasonable post vis-a-vis the map which was in response to your perfectly reasonable post vis-a-vis the map, the discussion is over as there is no one left to discuss your point.

It's like if you were a plaintiff in a civil suit and decided not to participate in depositions. The case would be dismissed.

My position has little to do with my like or dislike for you personally. And I don't want to devolve into "TGD hates me and is now accusing me of diverting the discussion" so I'm just going to leave it as - I answered your point, you haven't returned the answer, the discussion is over, and we can all move on to better things (fyi to readers - those better things happen in Off Topics, not General Discussions).

Looking forward to your response to Doc_Brown.


Meh- If the aim of the map, as stated by the map, is to fulfill "God's prophecy", what can I say to Doc when he asks how is the map overtly religious?


Maybe you misread his post.

1) The aim of the map is overtly religious. DB agrees. It's religious--like the 12 tribes of Israel, God's prophecy, etc. as the story goes.
2) The aim of the map is overtly political. DB disagrees.

What do you mean by '[i]overtly[/] religious'?

How exactly is the aim of the map overtly political?


The map claims all of the territories as Israel as "God's prophecy".


When does the setting of the map take place? Today or thousands of years ago?

Which part is "charged" or "heavy-handed"?

Well particularly the "According to God's prophecy" and "tear them apart and leave a valley of bones" bits could probably be toned down. It just sounds a bit extreme and the same energy could be conveyed without sounding so "challenging", if you know what I mean?
I personally don't have a problem with it but I could see how someone might be a little offended by the wording.


No sh*t.


You're offended at the mentioning of destroying one's enemies on a ConquerClub map?

Told him that on pages 1 & 2 but a bad dog never knows when to quit chewing. He obviously does not care about the map as he has not posted there yet. All Symmetry is is full of hot air.

The "According to God's prophecy" part would be relevant to a map discussing uniting the tribes of Israel and Judah considering God is their god, so I don't see how there would be issues with that (aside from the people who don't believe God exists, but that question is irrelevant to this map). As for the other part....sure it's strong language, but we know there are people in this world who want to do much more than that to the modern day version of the united Israel, so it seems relevant to me.

Of course, I'm also a person who thinks banning swastikas on maps of World War II Germany is dumb, and the quote on this map doesn't even come close to as contentious as swastikas.

Ok NS, I'll put it in a different light. How would you react to a map based on the crucifixion?
This map is borderline sacrilegious and I think that's what's not sitting right with me.
