Firstly, world 3.0 was an entirely different concept - it had a totally different gameplay plan which was way different than mine.
Secondly, that's all beside the point... the fact is, I made a map, I got told I couldn't make it because the site considered a large World map such an important project that they'd rather give it to a group of talentless hacks to make in secret, rather than to an established mapmaker. That's the point here, that certain people get special privileges over regular mapmakers, for absolutely no good reason whatsoever, other than they happen to be in some inner-circle clubhouse that gets the admin's special protection...
Those guys probably don't even have a draft yet. I have a ready map image. Why all the secrecy and lack of transparency in the process? If they were truly confident in the quality of their work, they'd post their map right alongside mine in the foundry and let the community decide which one is better. Let the better map survive, not the one that has special protection... if I'd get beaten in honest competition, I'd be fine with that, but this is just wrong.
