    Default Mapping Contest

    Ok. Let's start this off.

    I want to host a quarterly mapping contest. We would have theme contests and what not. Question is, what should the parameters be?

    I was thinking:

    1 month to make and submit a new map.
    Only 1 entry per person
    Must pertain to the theme of the month. First month would be free for all.
    Any parameters to size of map?

    Judging would be done with a day for players to log in and play the maps to vote on their favorite? (or suggest something) Perhaps a pre-selected team of players?

    The prize would be a game on Steam.

    C'mon tell me what you think?

    I'm sure I couldn't perfect a map in only a month especially working full time, but the whole idea is a fantastic way to practice mapping (whip up a new map every month, similar to those 'build a car in x timeframe' reality shows). I might even give it a shot.

    Default Can you have too many maps?

    I was thinking of doing it quarterly to prevent an influx of maps. Can there be too many maps? I don't wanna overwhelm any mappers either =(

    So would anyone but Darkhand be interested? Wouldn't be much of a contest if only one person entered :P

    I could try, i'd most likely lose interest half way in.

    Question: prize... provided by who?

    I would supply the prize. We'll give it a try and see how it goes. Making a new thread for the contest itself =)
