    well I couldn't help but to come back and see what people were saying about our new site. all i can say is "wow!"

    it seems a lot of the negativity is focused at our hosts, which is too bad, but i hope that having two sites being productive will have a positive effect on everyobdy and not such a negative one. it's just a game! don't get so worked up

    "sorry for being bitter, but these guys need to open themselves up to some good ol'fashon flammin." - I was hoping we could avoid flames for a little while
    "I admit that the reviews at Sunspire are not bad, but it could never replace NC." - thanks 'wing. btw- we're not trying to replace anybody.
    "in fact I have nothing against the site itself." - thx to anybody who can keep this open atitude :)
    "but they've not ****ed up.... yet. give it time" - we'll behave as long as you're still looking over our shoulder :)
    oh... and i'm sticking with one thumb up for Obsessive :D looking back, i agree that the textures + lighting are maybe not so great but it felt a lot more orignal than dozens of other maps i tried in the last month or so
    "Methinks it's alot harder to slip up on a review when your rating system essentially has 3 ratings, good, ok, and bad :)" - i hope people come to read the reviews and not to wait for us to slip up
    "No need to condemn them from the start" - thx
    "They want to make clear that they review for mappers, not for players." - we're still getting used to this whole reviewing thing and we're still trying to figure out if we want to review for either mappers, players, or both... like i said... we're still figuring things out
    "They only have ~1683 to go!" - we never said we were trying to catch you

    it's nice to see people are at least talking about the site even if it isn't always nice. yeah, i guess there's a little "atittude" in some of our banners or whatever but we're not out to get anyone

    why review the older maps? because we just picked some out of nowhere to begin with but now we're getting enough requests not to have to pick things out of the blue

    good to see ya guys again... i'll check back in a few days

    Sarah :)

    The only thing to compare the new site with is probably frag-facilty in it's prime, and even that was undermined by poor old Dooing being torn between his desire to give Anubis a 5 star review & trying to please his 'leet' mapper chums who thought it was a POS.

    The thing is UT has -never- had a decent MPQ/lvl style review site - only community map sites (nothing wrong with that) and laughable LevelSeekish/Headshottish sites that screwed the pooch (without lube) weekly with terrible reviews.

    So your site is something of a novelty :)

    Multiplayer Quake, Warren Marshal used to run it but it changed hands and went to seed. I think peej was running it at one time but my memory isnt what it used to be.

    They're writing good suff-and pumping out reviews @ sunspire consistently for the time being. It's a well designed site with some good stuff-I kinda like the attitude-don't take it seriously tho. Plus the people running it are really nice folks too.
    Having said that I don't think it ever will replace NC-no matter how much GSI pushes it-unless they take over and start funding it but I don't think the webmasters there would want that. Besides NC is run by capable people, have a little faith in them-maybe a little competition will start NC pumping out reviews regularily again*hint*;)
    anyway they call this place mother nali for a reason:)

    SunspireCodex is a great review site and they are welcome!
    NC was mainly just a database and a great forum.

    well how anyone can say its great when its been open like a week yet? have to wait and see.
    reviewing a bunch of older mostly crummy maps isnt a resume :)
    but they seem like they are trying to do good, so lets hope they do.
    the bad attitude is prob just becuz GSI started by pimping them so hard. again have to wait and see.
    websites always start off gangbusters, its what happens after awhile to see if they are any good.
    right now, middle thumbs :)

    I like their review-style. It´s not this classification BS. What I read up to now is pretty accurate.
    DM-Obsessive was the best reviewed DM-Level of them so far.

    I'll inform Inoxx that he must try harder

    His textures are pretty bad, too. He needs to improve.

    That Phobos map is a load of boring, uninspired, unoriginal trash.
