To move into general Foundry Discussion, there needs be some sort of plan, and a working image (other than MS Paint or pencil/paper). Once we see those, we'll move it into 'production', essentially.
The point of moving some threads was to try and set an example. I'm trying to encourage people to actually post their initial drafts in the appropriate forum.
Mibi and DiM, I guess you two think you're above the new process. Just because you two have maps on the site/in development doesn't mean you get to skip the first step.
I realise that this map will be developed, but if anybody else had of posted those draft images there would've been no complaints about the thread being in the ideas forum. Get off your high-horse and set an example for other cartographers to follow.
no keyogi we're not above the system but look at the bolded part of what andy said.
tell me i don't have a working image. i've spent hours creating my 3d image. isn't that enough?
yes exactly. we both have spent hours on our maps. i have spent hours going over the gmaeplay and having om discussions with coleman, samus and others about this map. the only thing that isnt flushed out is the graphics. its ridiculous that my map is in the ideas forum, since it is OBVIOUSLY a map in development.
the only one on their high horse is you, keyogi, who feels the needs to superfluously exercise your mod powers.
what is this new process you speak of? when will this thread be moved to the regularly foundry? where are the guide lines? when does something go from an idea to a real map? it seems the answer to that is "whenever the mods feel like it" which is a joke, as are these sub forums.
whos bright idea was this anyways.
they just posted an announcement for the foundry process. it says you need 2 graphic updates to prove you're in development.
i posted something like 10 updates but still nothing. now i was requested severat angles. i posted 9 angles. let's see what happens.
