To have less choice of maps? I just don't get it... what would you get out of it?
Better maps. People would be forced to make maps that will be played on. If a map is in the bottom 2 percentile, how great can it be?
Or, people won't bother to even try to make good maps, since they know the maps can be removed from play anyway.
What's with this "people would be forced to make better maps" thing anyway? Do you think people make purposefully bad maps right now?
People make as good maps as they are capable of. It's up to the CA:s to monitor and guide the mapmaking process and make sure inferior maps won't get through until they're developed into good maps.
Sadly, the site admin does not really give a shit about the foundry, or the quality of maps, as long as some maps are produced. People who really care about the foundry and are invested in it are driven away because of the admins' moronic policies. So mapmakers do what they can, but until you can get lackattack to really pay attention to the problems of the foundry I don't think you're going to see any real progress.
