I'm not saying the Foundry is dead map-wise — quite the opposite, as the newest maps that keep coming in and out better as they come — I'm saying that the Foundry is losing the comments that it had, like I pointed out from May '08.

I am saying that in May, there were comments coming onto maps in magnitude like I pointed out using examples from May. Now, the Foundry has slowed down comments-wise on new maps. I am not pointing out that there should be a ton of comments on a Quenched map or a Vacationed/Abandoned one, but rather that in maps in progress (especially new ones) there isn't the feedback by number of posters nor number of posts that there were previously.

how to make a map wrote:Map Idea
All maps start life in the foundry as an idea in the "Map Ideas" sub forum. Here maps must gain their ideas stamp before being moved into full production in the main foundry.
1)The map, first and foremost, must have some sort of clear plan of how production will go
2) Have a playable image. If we quenched it people should be able to play on it. This should included the following:
Territory names3) The working image needs to be beyond rough draft state. This means that you must provide the following:
Tentative Border Divisions
A working image done in some kind of graphic software. Pencil drawn images and images done on paint will not be accpected.4) Have honest and interested discussion. Not just you and three friends.
Two quality updates must be provided.

oaktown wrote:Wait, then you turned around and gave an example from just one month ago (the Oakland thread) in which there were a ton of posts in the first day. So the activity isn't dropping, it's just that some maps don't get the same level of activity as the example you gave from last May, while others have.
