He is back! He is back!

Hello Foundry Goers,

It's a great pleasure for me to announce the official return of one of the greatest Foundry contributors.
For some real life reasons he had to hang up his blue shoes for some time but his love for the Foundry had never turned off.

Today, he is finally ready to put on again his pair of blue shoes and give a hand to keep the things running smoothly.
He will take care of the maps during the Graphics development with RedBaron0 and isaiah40 (that like some of you have certainly noticed, is currently taking care the Drafting Room untill the return of Industrial Helix).

Anyway, without any further ado, I'm going to unveil that the latest addition to the group of Cartographers is.....

Image*drum roll*

the only...
the great....
the mythical.....


gimil!

Please, come here to say him welcome back!
Welcome back gimil, we missed you.
:)

Oh, I forgot a thing (that only some will understand), but "You look so good in blue". ;)

Umm, not likely. Qwert is all pissed at the foundry, because apparently people are just mean bastards who don't understand his godlike genius. WM is making maps for another, "elite" site which only accepts the "best" of mapmakers...

qwert might come back if the map making process improves. i don't know about WM but i highly doubt he'd give up on MC to return to CC. i honestly see no reason why he would.
