    October/November Lite Challenge Results

    The October/November Lite Challenge was 'Map a River'. Guilders were asked to create a map in a style of their choosing, but the main focus was to be the river system.

    We had several excellent entries, but it became clear from early on that this was a two horse race, with voting close until the end. ...

    Hi All-

    I hope I've fixed up the broken search system - seems OK now and seems to survive reboots without intervention (which was issue before).

    I've ...

    The site has been restored from backup due to a pretty significant server mishap. The data was restored the evening of the 27th of March, and the data ends on the 25th of March at about 5am EST. I apologize for the inconvenience. Any members registered during that time will need to re-register, any content posted during that time will need to be reposted.

    Damage control is currently being handled, and some features will still be disabled until they can be worked out. Please be patient.

    Again, I am so sorry for this inconvenience. I hope to be back to normal very soon.

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the Cartographers' Guild,

    We need a Public Relations person to handle all of our, well, public relations bits! I figured it best to go to the community to look for one, that way anyone can step up, not just a CL. We're looking for someone who is active or at least aware of the daily activity that takes place site-wide, and is able to devote some time almost daily to scouring the community for interesting tid-bits and promoting those tid-bits to the rest of the community. This will involve making posts and promoting threads to the front "news/articles" page of the site, promoting and encouraging the use of the guilds blog feature, checking the PR email address (soon to be publicized), and managing the guilds' social networks (currently twitter, facebook, and google+).

    In addition to being active and aware of what's going on here, we'd also like the PR Rep to be active or aware of what's going on outside of the Guild in the world of mapping and gaming, and anything that is posted elsewhere by other sites related to mapping or even our own industry professionals gets cross-posted or reposted on our front page and social networks.

    If this sounds like a job you'd be willing to help us out with, please email me at press @ cartographersguild.com or PM me through the site with a pitch for yourself and why you'd like to volunteer for this position. If you'd like more information, you may post in the original thread or email me directly.
