    someone makes a base map, a simple gamemode, undetailed. it would detailed monthly in diff. styles depending on month. Jan: alpine Feb: desert ETC. the reward would be small, something like 1 ref a month or a similar value, just so it isn't reward orientated. this would be a detail contest.

    I kind of like this idea, but instead of having it be on a monthly basis, have it to where all participants are given a base map (no detail, all dev textures) and each contestant will detail it however they want; no setting given or the like whatsoever.

    that was My idea.
    Im not sure how all this relates to not being monthly. the theme idea is mostly to prevent staleness if it was monthly.

    What about a contest where maps must be based off of recognizable real life locations? For instance, imagine fighting on the Statue of Liberty, or inside Big Ben.

    That could be fun. although Clock tower and Big Ben would be very cramped

    I'm more than sure some yet another idiot would make WTC map.

    Didn't someone make a map of the WTC where one of the teams had to keep the other in there until the tower collapsed? It could've been a fever dream but I'm pretty sure I've seen something like that.

    This came up in a map session a while back, but a Map Your State/Region/Province contest would be a fun idea.

    Maybe a collaboration where people from the same area could work together as well, like California Team, or even Orange County Team.

    What if people don't live in a certain place, bu lived there before, for a while. might broaden the spectrum?

    I guess teams can form as representation rather than exact location. You could be living in Minnesota but you can choose to represent the Arizona team or something equivalent.

    I'd totally be down for a "World Tour Contest" type of thing, where you could pick a location for mapping sounds radical.
