suspended is the same as banned isn't it? thats what ban and perma bans are for. As for mord well whatever.RyokoTK wrote:I didn't ban anyone. xyfbzi was suspended; he can come back in a week and a half. Mordekai was "banned" by his request in a different topic. He, quite literally, asked for it. And he's still around anyway.

It's not the job of all of the other scientists to disprove any theory brought up -- otherwise you'd have a hell of a lot of crackpot theories floating around. It's the same thing here. You made the claim that they're perfect, and it's your job to prove it. It's not my job to prove you wrong.

You guys aren't like the cream of a crop. Stop deluding yourselves into thinking you're greater than you are! You're just guys! You'll never be perfect, you'll never be amazing, so stop pretending like you're the definitive people on opinions.
RyokoTK, stop being pretentious. You don't tell me what a good map is or isn't! You can't write the definitions of what is good or not, since you don't even know! Didn't you learn anything from my original posts? Or are you just closing your eyes and going lalalalalala? Well, WAKE UP. You know NOTHING.
xyfbiz, your maps aren't good either, but if you practice and learn from people that actually ARE GOOD at mapping then you will get better! Until then, you will have boring levels like Bill's Level which is just a ton of hallways and stairs. Very talented! Just kidding, it sucks.
Your point that he has to substantiate his claim about perfection comes earlier: he's allowed to make any claim he wants (as are scientists), but the burden of proof, so to speak, is on him to convince you of his claim (crackpot theories don't fly around in the scientific community as much as they could because, quite simply, scientists -like you- are skeptical of claims and aren't quick to agree without being convinced). In this context, his map would be sufficient for being evidence. Of course, all you have to do to disprove his claim is take a look at it and realize (as irons did), inferior weapon placement or any other single point. Making a claim about perfection is pretty silly, in general, but he explained his reasoning (I suppose).

I don't really know about that.From what little I know of you guys, you just simply don't have the patience to throw 2/3 of your maps away and spend the required time to fix the other third.
When I release my map pack in a little while, I hope people will tell me what needs tweaking so v1.2 can be better, even if my modifications might be a long way off.

I was more commenting on your insinuation that other people don't have that patience. Between the metaserver and places like the Pfhorums, more and more mappers seem to be seeking advice and feedback for the maps they make, which means that even if they are clutching to their bad ideas, at least they're trying to fix them. Which is still a critical step forward.If you're commenting about the patience required to make good maps
I know that you don't clutch to your map ideas if they suck

I am much more in favor of trying to salvage a map than throwing it out, because there aren't that many maps that can't be fixed.
