    Default Suggestion: New award

    Hi Guilders and Guildies,
    looking through the finished map section I am astonished how some of you post new and high quality maps in no time, e.g. Max, Sapiento etc.

    I like it because it is fun to study them and also get new ideas. To honour these artists I suggest to add/create a new award for posting xx maps. This could also be a bronze, silver and gold award like the compass in the mapping challenges.

    What do you think?

    Could be a good idea, but i also see a risk for more low quality maps posted in the finished map section with such an incitation. Personally i sometimes restrained myself from posting a map i did in the finished map section because of its low quality. As a regular map maker i'm "for" your sugestion but we'll then have to find something to control the possible abuse

    I think the idea has merit however I would also be afraid of "mass postings". I have 3 pages of finished maps in almost 4 years of being a member and I am not the most prolific mapper here by any means.

    You are both right and I am also aware of low quality and mass postings. Perhaps this could be avoided by taking the map rating in account.

    Honestly for every map I post in the Finished Maps forum, there is 10 I didn't. Yet those 10 aren't low quality, I just feel I'm inundating the Finished Maps with all the maps I create. So I only post the most unique ones, generally.
