Mapmakers Guild [Social]

MAPMAKERS GUILD

Aspiring mapmakers can get overwhelmed with the task of creating a map all by themselves. Others just don't have time to keep updating a map with every detail requested by the Foundry. Still others don't have access to a good image editing program, or do not know how to start.

If you are interested in being a part of map creation, without the responsibility of an entire map hanging over your head, this is the group for you! We are a collection of part-time cartographers who will work together to produce some of the most mind-blowing maps that Conquer Club has ever seen. Our goal is to be, essentially, the Foundry equivalent of The Society Of The Cooks. We make it easy to get involved in map making by getting your feet wet, without jumping into the Foundry headfirst.

To join this group, go to Control Panel - Usergroups - Mapmakers Guild, select it, and click "Join selected" at the bottom. It may take over a week to approve you, so be patient. Membership requires the approval of pork and me, which you'll get as long as you aren't a complete jerk. ;)

The rules of the group and the reasons for its creation are detailed below.

However... can we please change the name. I guess we cant use "The Map Machine" now but lets think of something other than "The Map Factory"...

The Map Machine is a good moniker, but it is NOT as descriptive as, The Map Factory. ;)
