    Hi all,

    I was wondering if you have a review queue that mappers can check the progress of their maps on?

    I'm interested in finding out roughly when or if my map will be getting a review?

    Thanks


    Tical :D

    The list would be long, and would also open the door for more n00b complaints. Though I can see why people would like to have one. But that's just my opinion. :hmm:

    in general, maybe we already talked about this a long time ago, but shouldnt requests from the author themself get a higher priority ? kinda logic since that would mean the guy really wants a review, while now 60 procent of the review list is filled with random people who select "random" maps, sometimes years old
    so currently the people who really want a review for their own work have less chance on getting a review like this

    Right. I requested a review for my map 3 times and the request button always gets yellow again after a while. 6 months and nothing. Not even queqed.
    Nevermind me and my stupid maps.

    I usually try to do that, can't get all of them though, or if someone specifically requests me to do a review, I make it prioity.

    I was informed that you get your map reviewed quicker if you dont specify a reviewer, so is this not the case??

    not at all, specifying an active reviewer could give a far quicker result, in the general que its very likely its going to get lost

    However, if you request a inactive reviewer, you're not going to get anything either.

    Well I've been waiting since the start of September for a review and it doesnt look like I 'm gonna get one here,

    So is there any hope of getting my map reviewed??

    Is there any way I can select it for review again and specify a reviewer??

    Would anyone of the reviewers be willing to review it for me??

    Thnks sorry for being a pain :2thumb:

    I've had other people put my maps in the review Queue. The one map is been in their since june, it would be nice if a person could only have one map in the queue at a time to lighten the load on the queue.

    We've thought about that or limiting the author to request only his own maps. I think the latter might be the best choice. Suggestions?

    I don't know about limiting to maps only the author has made, there are probably some good maps out there that could use to be brought to our attention. But I do agree that it could help if there was some limiting. If there is going to be some limiting, don't take away reviewers ability to request reviews for ourselves.

    The other thing that would help is for us reviewers to get more reviews put out, (I know I've been guilty the last couple weeks of being slow, but I got slowed by quite a bit of homework.)

    It might be good to let the map owner change the person they requested to get a review from, incase the person get a inactive reviewer and switch to a active reviewer. Show active reviewer's (anyone who has done a review in the past 2 weeks or so) names in green and how many many they got to review. Then inactive reviewer's name in red. Don't know if you could do that or if would work, just a thought.

    I'm not sure if changing who reviews your map would be a good idea if they already started the review and you don't know. Reviewers will have to give an opinion on that one.

    As for colors, not possible... however, I can make only active reviewers show up.
