    Default Lite challenge Question??

    Whats up with the Lite challenge ? Maybe I misunderstood but I thought it ran from the 15th to the 10th then 5 days of voting. Then the cycle restarts. Today is the 12th. No voting has been posted. Is there a problem or rules change ?
    I am hoping after the contest to get some much needed C&C! I really want to know how to improve my mapping. C&C has been really thin!! What looks right?, what not?, alternate ways to achieve things? etc !!

    The Lite Challenge runs from the 15th to the 15th. You still have 3 days

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    For quite a while now, its much more likely that the voting starts on the 15th, and new challenge is posted 2-3 days afterwards, near the end of the voting.

    yep... we should change the rules to reflect that date change... I remember I got confused about it when I started in the light challenges as well. CC is always nice to get, however - sometimes you just hit a period where everybody is busy with their own IRL stuff and just don't get much input if any ... happens to all of us

    We've also had some discussions on C&C in the past because of this. Most of the time if someone else has already stated C&C that we agree with, we don't post anything more (Unless we don't have something to add that is). Also, if your style is something that we are unfamiliar with then C&C tends to be a little thin. If you are using a software that we don't know much or anything about we tend to keep our comments to ourselves and let someone else who knows it do the work.

    Those are just a few additional reasons C&C can be light, other than when everyone gets busy.

    I know for me that unless I'm completely comfortable with what I'm talking about I tend to keep my comments to myself. I would hate to give feedback or technique help and be wrong.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
