    I was wondering when this would happen... well as long as he doesn't delete all your feedback you should be okay

    You know, I don't quite understand why map attribution on Feedback isn't automatic and connected to the accounts on this site rather than Steam.

    Because the imp/gameday systems don't talk to the feedback system.

    I'm not sure how it could be automatic. You can't use data from who uses the uploader page since not everyone can use that page. You might be able to grab user data from VBot, but that's still not 100% reliable (plus not everything runs through VBot). There's features you could build to make this process simpler, but it's been functioning pretty well on the honors system until now, so I don't think they were ever seriously considered.

    map the mapname to map thread name and use its creator as author?
