    How do you decide who is a newer mapper?

    That's what I was going to say. The new mappers who came after 2011 would really like to try it out.

    The artpass contest had one glaring problem: Everyone who entered and didn't win had a map that no one would ever play, no matter how good it was. And that was after ending up with twice as many winners as we had planned. Usually if you don't win a contest, hey, at least you made something and it might still be worthwhile or at least you could always improve it.

    I personally treated it as much-needed detailing practice, but we got some damn fine entries that will never get played again. Hell, we got some damn fine assets that will never see the light of day anywhere else, too, although that's mainly the entrants' fault.

    The issue would be lessened a little by the fact SFM exists now and I'm sure people would love using the other detail entries as set pieces for their stuff. People also really like remixes of maps they love, like abandoned upward, so if you put it on the workshop people will eat it up even if it isn't a winner. That's just what I think

    Yeah the workshop exists now, it'll make it a little easier for those maps to be discoverable even if they lost.

    It's like the good side of the billion of 2fort rethemes.

    Yup

    There was some discussion about how a new one would go down on the previous page, too.
