Sucks but what can you do? None of you people are showing up in the foundry to give any feedback anymore, so we, the mapmakers, have to go by what we get.
If you would give feedback regularly, instead of only showing up when you want to complain about something, then maybe we wouldn't have to be guessing what people want, based on a single person's feedback.

maybe my humble opinion could help
as mapmaker when I had some major change issue
I used to pm all the main contributor to my map thread
eventually 2 or 3 dropped in and gave me more feedback
very useful and reassuring

On 27th Aug 2011 Kabanellas, the mapmakers who hold the imagery rights on the map agreed with the idea.
In the same day was asked to me to apply that change (I don't have the pm anymore sorry)
For 4 months, no one went here to said the opposite and moreover again for 4 months I totally forgot to change the map as it was requested to me.

I don't see why such tool couldn't be allowed if it's use was restricted to only such situations.

Have you here around let me think about my desire to see more tournament organizer around in the foundry. This is something I ever want.
If only you all come here to say us things like: Hey why not to create this map? we can organize this type of tournaments if you do that!......for me this is a dream, a cross dept work to develope great map for great tournaments....unfortunately I never found a real way to "accomplish this mission"

Unless you already frequent the foundry, its sort of a PITA to find where the beta/quenched map threads are. I bet if there was a small link or button the actual game page that said "Map Feedback" a LOT more people would visit the map and give their opinions.
You could even use this space for special circumstances like this or Asia, where the link would give notice of a proposed change.
This way it is targeted at the people who regularly play the map, rather than having to make a broad announcement.
But even just a link to the map thread would help a lot of these issues, imo.
