First of all, just because you work hard on something, doesn't mean it's worth the effort. Par example: You slave for hours on a cake and it flops. Are we to commend you for your work? No.
But here the cake did not flop. Majority of CC considers the new classic great, and loves it. You're in the minority having your tantrums. So you don't have to commend the maker for his work, but the way you express your opinion is just not nice.
As well, just because you do this for free, you volunteered for it. If you don't' like criticism, then don't volunteer.
Criticism is one thing. Bashing all over someones' work just because you don't like it is childish. It's like an 8-year old having a tantrum, "I want it now, I want it exactly like this, I don't want it like that!! Waaaah!!!" Usually, by the time those 8-year-olds grow up and become adults, they learn how to put their personal feelings aside when expressing their opinions in a civilized manner.
Then again, your profile doesn't tell your age, so I'm not sure is it fair of me to expect you to behave like an adult?
What I cannot appreciate is joining a Classic Art/Shapes game
I joined a map in which territories were touching, not something I'd look at in an American Airlines magazine.
So if you have been playing shapes games, how is this any different? Except for being visually far superior, of course.
