[quote="Ditocoaf"]I think I've figured it out! We say, "how could you have done this without consulting the larger community?" They say, "you could have commented at any time, it was here." We say, "Nobody looks in here! We thought this forum was just for new maps! If we had known there were plans for a change to the Classic, we would have come!" They say, "well, you should have come in here."
The answer: the mapmaking community feels neglected and ignored as the larger part of the community refrains from visiting the foundry and reading the threads. Like an ignored child, they decide to lash out, do something that will cause us to sit up and take notice! [i]That'll[/i] teach the community to not visit the foundry! If we don't like what they're doing, then we should be here all the time, scanning each of the threads. Finally, the mapmaking sub-community will have the attention they crave!
Seriously. It wouldn't have hurt to post a thread somewhere where people [i]look[/i], to let people know about this. Don't just say, "you could have commented," because they didn't [i]know[/i] this was going on. You can have a secret meeting without a locked door, when there's nobody going in the room anyway.[/quote]
Just to reiterate - there was an announcement in the General Discussion sometime ago...
