    hmmm, doesn't go for me, I totally don't care. There are loads of different people in the community, there will always be people that want to play andaction style maps, sit and hold down fire while moving round randomly and getting kills and so on. For me that is nothing to do with what ut is about and I'm not interested in what these people have to say about my maps. If they give my map a 0 because it didn't have 1000 redeemers or whatever sick requirement they have then I just ignore it. Joke's on them for wasting their time downloading a map which they blatently weren't going to enjoy in the first place :p

    aah, die UP leute bei ihrem lieblingshobby. "Warum hasse ich NC so sehr!"
    Sobald diese kinder erwachsen werden und lernen, dass worte einem nicht verletzen können werden sie es verstehen. Bis dahin kann man seinen spaß mit diesen menschen haben und sie verbal zu so vielen dummen sachen verleiten, dass man am abend mit einem guten gefühl im bauch schlafen geht ;)

    Balton, du hast NIX kapiert. Komischerweise glaubten auch die von UP daran, dass sie besser seien und zu einer anderen Community gehören würden - stimmt nunmal aber nicht. :p

    To everyone else: You always think UP and NC are two different communities because they visit different inet sites. You are WRONG. You play the same game, play the same maps, share the same opinions about most of the same things. Different community? Ridiculous.

    I like both sites, but they are a bit different. NC is usually too good for UP, or atleast has that attitude. You can't market yourself as the best mapping site unless your members think they are the best. ;) But what does that have to do with rating two different ways? Well NC has always leaned far from the funnel/sniper maps, as you called them or the andAction maps as we might know them here, and towards the "real" efforts, whereas UP is more accepting of the funnel/sniper maps.

    Most peeps upload them whereever possible to get there map out to the world.

    The biggest difference between these two site are the rating system. UP doesn't do userratings, NC does. And that's what deviding people in the long run.

    let me explain again, do you see people on nc bad mouthing up?
    and then some UPers are talking about offensive user comments and bad community. If they weren't so keen on having a scapegoat in the mapping community ( ;) ) they'd actually give the system a try and might learn to ignore the bad apples that like to joke. They shouldn't be offended by messages dumb people write on the internet, it's not serious business.
    this side of the community is pretty open as I see it.
    now don't do that damn weastcoast-eastcoast crap homie :)

    btw. this isn't actually an important issue, is it?

    I don't like flamewars and if someone's behaviour gets to be too much there is always the ignore lists; at least on these boards.....

    ............and have a nice day.

    Well
    I requested that silly map headake,and the dude here insists on reviewing everything he sees on his listorama.
    I will never agree with such rediculas logic there,hell go chop off your hands,cause it said so lol.................

    Oh sure enough it ended up on mapraider,and several other places,cause they all point to nalicity,however after all the lame freaks bashing the poor foamy gal mapper guy,gal this weekend,but then soak up a review spot up there with that map,it's like DUH fricking DUH
    So nalicity is wich,kiddy comments cause thier all so cool and killer mappers to slam that guys maps,OR post a review of the lamest map ever wich is soaking up a good spot,(plus my map is gonna get pushed off next grrrr) to show off all the quality everybody was slamming the foamy about .

    Man they got to take that F-ing map off of there,aaaaaaaaaghghgh,it's givin me a "headake"

    It's okay to mention me by name...
    You don't have to agree with it. Just don't abuse it. Like you did with Headake.

    That's your own fault. You requested the review.

    Look - no one else has complained about me paying attention to my list. Your complaint/criticism has been heard and responded to. If the community in general wanted me to do otherwise, they should say something about it.
    If reviewers aren't supposed to pay attention to their lists, then they shouldn't exist in the first place.

    You yourself said that part of a reviewer's job is to go find old maps that are good that got passed by. That's great, but we have personal requests, and hundreds of general map review requests. Why don't you use the fact that I pay attention to my list, go find some old maps that are good, and request that I review them.

    That would be much more productive than requesting a map like Headake just to see if I'll actually ignore something. If you continue to request maps like Headake from me, I'll decline all review requests I get from you.

    Look - I know you have a problem with how I choose to review maps. But we've addressed this before I thought we came to an understanding that we'll agree to disagree. And if the community wants me to do it differently, then I will. As long as it's just you, I'm not going to change. And trying to force me to by requesting maps such as Headake isn't going to do it.
    Red_Fist, can we put down this issue once and for all?

    Well don't worry,I won't pick any requests ever again,your doing fine with reviews.
    The other websites ,accept insite,have that list updated from nalicity,i don't see why others don't say anything,it is a highly coveted list .
    Now insite goes to far the other way,mapraider collects maps from anyone who sends them,but no reviews,or rarely comments.

    Look at richyB comment I bet he would rather have headakes spot.

    and this guy
    and on another map some ctf map in the comments list this guy

    Welp, I just wanted to see, and as I see it, this map sat in review que no longer than 18 or so days since today is the 19th. I have a map for over 1 year or so....you know what never mind, i give up on nalicity....Yous guys suck

    I bet he would like headakes spot too.

    anyway,it's good there are reviewers,regardless

    good day...........

    Please don't stop requesting reviews in general

    Ours is.... a bit longer than theirs. In theory I agree with you and I think it's a good thing to do. In execution for NaliCity, I don't think it's a good idea simply for the size of it. Plus, hasn't there already been a thread about that somewhere here?

    I don't quite follow you there,I mean to say the other sites automaticaly tie in to nalicity,and the same list appears on thier websites.And they also tie in automaticaly and grab the actual map when they end up in the review column.

    And what I mean about others not saying anything (accept me of course),is about how nalicity picks the levels for review.

    Sorry - I was unclear here. I was not referring to other sites grabbing maps/links/etc... from NaliCity. I was referring to a public review queue.

    Right - well, we talked about that already. Users and authors pick which maps they want reviewed, and the reviewers satisfy the requests. There's the general review queue, and a reviewer-specific queue. I review from my queue until it's empty, then I pick from the general queue. Other reviewers do it differently.

    NCreviewers are free to review ANY MAP they choose (that hasn't been reviewed or on another reviewer's list, duh).

    Arr... The Que is really just more of a guideline.
