don't know if it's been done since but it would be great to have this thing brought back.
also i'd love to see thematic speed contests. for example once a month for 6 hours (a decent time to get a map done) any map maker goes in the chat and a CA gives a theme (let's say pirates, or your neighbourhood, or gay penguins) and each person starts making the map reporting the progress every hour to the CA (a screenshot of the map to show progress). then the maps get voted and the winner is uploaded on the site. of course a lot of work is still needed to balance gameplay and perhaps even touch up graphics but that can be done while in beta.
Absolutely no way, am I going to contribute 6 hour of my time to something like this! As cool as it sounds.
But I would like to see more ways to allow people to compete against each other. Graphical competition pushes us all to become better with our chosen programs.
