I'm sorry natty, but come down off that high horse of yours otherwise we will continue to clash severely...you are not the law around here...yet!
I'm sorry you feel that way cairnswk, perhaps you'd like for someone else to check your XML:s? I can ask if that can be arranged, I'm sure someone else will get to it eventually...
I'm sorry you feel that I'm on a "high horse", but when I request an image with neutrals from you, it's done for your benefit, not to spite you. If you have a problem with it, or if my word is not good enough for you, you can take it up with thenobodies80.
natty, i have no problems providing you with an image or anyone else on my team providing you with an image if it is done is a manner that appears as a simple request and not something in the somewhat "demanding" vain as was put in this:
For now, I'm asking all mapmakers / xml writers to post an image with neutrals/start positions just to be sure to have the latest version. In the future, these will be required to be posted in the xml checks thread along with the xml & map images.
This is to ensure the XML will be properly checked and no mistakes such as people starting with bonuses will slip through, so your co-operation will be appreciated. Thanks.
Also, i'd like to know why no announcement was made about you checking xmls, which again i have no problems with if there is a need for such to be done.
However, it appears as though, like the double standards that are/have been applied to the behind-the-scenes maps (which you are totally against because of unfair advantage and so-called eliteism, which i agree with) there is double standards occuring here because once again, the foundry has not been kept informed via an annoucement of what is going on with the CAs.
You see, i can only respect "officialdom" when it is publicly announced and not executed like the "ole boys club' behind the scenes.
I am surprised at you, for being in favour of non-double standards in one area, and yet applying double standard (intentional or not) in another. A little humility goes a long way natty.
In fact, this little tidbit from you elsewhere could very well be applied here...
rather than trying to browbeat the mapmaker into obedience.
