    Some months ago I saw a map that made me lol, not because it were funny, because it was too bad done that I said to myself: This guys has had to make a big effort to map that bad. I mean, even being the first time you touch hammer you should know VGUI textures aren't for mapping.

    http://www.fpsbanana.com/maps/63561

    I rated it with a 0 and I gave this feedback which I think it's very fair:

    Pros: Made me lol
    Cons: All lol. Yes really, all the map is a Cons itself
    Improvements: All
    Notes: You're funny the way you explained it and all the vgui textures. I can't give you a mark for this. Here you got my 0, sorry.


    So he has appealed it now, and a moderator accepted it, so my 0 is no longer valid because "Insufficient feedback". Yeah, how can I give feedback to a box with VGUI textures?¿?¿?¿

    There's 3 10s and 1 eight. Well, one of the 10s is DJive but he made it for the lulz and sarcasm so it's ok.

    What do you think about such appealing?

    What pisses me off is it was a fair mark, but the kid doesn't want to accept that VGUI box is fail

    Oh yes, he also says:
    :\

    In the last decade the internet has become so easy to use anyone can make anything they want.

    You're never going to stop the flood of these idiots - whilst in the good old days these kids would have a real hobby (or a job down some mine) but now they're just free to plague the internet. You're never going to stop it, I doubt you'll even be able to change the attitude of one single person. so whenever you see something like this don't bother trying to step in and take action just think "heh that kid's gunna grow up to be a right prat" and move on.

    I think the problem is society seems to favor those so called Prats and thier behavior.

    ^ heh, i was in an evil mood that week i think with the rate and quality i was looking at maps posted.

    I was giving VERY honest review, and also giving a LOT of feedback, most of the times an honest 1-2 paragraphs and it was being over turned by a moderator so...

    Hence the comment and rating.

    Don't let it bother you to much, i stopped looking at fpsb a long time ago, i go there now to support the mappers who are part of the community here and also who look to put a ton of effort into their maps.

    I think he really wants to learn to make some custom textures. He would be much happier. That way he could make bad maps in style!

    Woot, I just got the last assessment that pushed it to being trashed.

    You guys have no sense of humour. This was made as a simple joke by the guy, you're acting like if someone just offended you personally. For 80% of you, mapping will never be serious business anyway.

    Making a humourous map is one thing - that can be good - but publishing it on a major mapping/modding site and acting like it's a real quality map is another. This is a site where people can submit their hard work for other people to download and rate, and clogging it with this stuff is nothing but bad. Go ahead and make horrible monstrosities like this if you find it funny, just keep it away from those who like maps with a bit of effort and love put in.

    Yeah anyone who really knows who they are and what they do hates them too.

    microsoft sam + poorly animated characters someone else designed + terrible storylines and bad timing (in the vast majority of CC stuff) + large groups of people voting 10 on other CC submissions JUST because they're in the CC too=/= cool

    oh and don't forget all the spin off abominations like the glock crew

    Groups like the CC are a plague on newgrounds in much the same way the braindead FPSB user is on FPSB.

    I think the best part is the part where everyone knows it's a joke submission but insists on critiquing it like a serious effort.

    There is no place for joke submissions. They make a mockery of everything mapping is.

    I don't know if it was a joke or not because I don't know the guy, I didn't want it to be trashed, what pissed me off is that he appealed a serious feedback and trashed my mark. He can make a joke if he wants to, but don't appeal the feedback because it was fair.

    Anyway, I still remember when I was a kid and I played CS 1.5 FPS Banana was a very good site with lots of real reeskins (remodeled) weapons and stuff. I hope it'll be like the old days

    Hmm. We're not going to agree on this; I think pretty much everything is fair game for well-done mockery. Not that I think this map is "well-done mockery"...I'm just amused that people are criticizing the map instead of saying "Dude, not funny".
