I think we can sort a little better than that. First of all, 13 Colonies in difficult? Second of all, if above 50 is large, then there needs to be an extra large category as well I think. A list of easy/basic maps would be a good thing.

I think the best way to categorize them would to use multiple categories. First would be by size. Second would be by difficulty. Third would be alphabetically. Fourth would be chronically. Fifth would be style. Sixth would be by popularity within the last 3-4 months (or something like that).

If you are able to sort the maps using those categories, maps can fit into multiple categories and people can play the type/size/popular map that they want.

there's no point in starting over the discussion on what categories we should or should not use.
there are some very good points in this 23 page long discussion which also includes very good descriptions and stats.
however take note of the date and realise the futility of that thread. :roll:

Very true.

Back on track, the foundry needs to get more attention to help make a better product for the site.

That would be great. Why would they stall on something like that? Seems fairly simple to implement.

sounds good. thanks!!! :-)


This post is from a year and a half ago. So, people keep coming up with great ideas and apparently people, even Mods, think that those ideas are going to be implemented.

I was not aware of either of the discussions that DiM posted, but those are again fantastic, relatively easily implemented ideas.

In the past, I got the feeling that lack was hoping to do a major revamp of the site layout (I can't quote any posts, because I frankly don't have time to search everywhere, and it may just have been wishful thinking on the part of myself or other posters). I would hope that a better map browser would be part of that effort, but I suspect that any project of that magnitude will not begin until lack finds a reliable web developer who stays long enough to finish something.
