    I am pleased to report that we have something huge going down right now. A couple weeks ago, our moderator Youme received an email from Dario Casali, a prominent member of the Valve mapping team.

    After a couple days of drafting, myself and the other officers wrote a reply, detailing the stand-out issues of Badwater, and thanking him for his interest in our feedback. It was my decision that our reply should be prompt, which is why we did not share w/ the community at that time. Suffice to say, we told Mr. Casali that since Badwater was updated, most of the present issues are aesthetic. We also pointed him to our wip letter regarding an interview. Three days we got this;

    And we have just sent out our reply w/ a couple ideas for this event. The methods we suggested are having an ingame discussion or a traditional chat if they would prefer not to do a live thing. I realize that some of you might be rather upset that we did not share this information sooner. That was my decision for several reasons. When Youme got the first email, I wanted the reply to be concise and fast. Spending a week debating the merits of Badwater and the exact wording of our response was something we really couldn't do. Same thing goes for our reply about an interview. That is also why I have summed up said replys rather than posting them here.

    However, time has finally come for everyone to get in on the action. Now that we've made the offer for an interview thing, we're going to need some questions. Nothing is set in stone yet, but we want to be ready. So if you can ask something of a professional mapper, a Valve mapper no less, what would it be?

    Mr Casali has informed us that he thinks the best option is to start w/ an email exchange of some questions so that he has time to prepare solid answers, and consider what is best covered in a live format like pointing out specific parts of a map. The questions thread has been updated w/ the list we'll be sending.
