    Thay actually downrated Mr. Fawns new map because he deleted the brushes after rebuilding. Besides we had this discussion on the board in extenso it´s ridiculuos. I personally dislike it, but it has nothing to do with the quality of the map

    Yup, /me agrees. Technical shiznit shouldn't even come into a review unless it concerns framerate issues. The vast majority of UT players you see on the servers don't know and don't care what UED is anyway, much less whether the brushes have been deleted.

    so they got five possible verdicts, which I suppose spread out equally:

    :tdown: :tdown: = 1-20%
    :tdown: = 21-40%
    [​IMG] = 41-60%
    :tup: = 61-80%
    :tup: :tup: = 81-100%

    They gave DM-Ghostmine one thumb down.
    That is idiocy. Even with some serious out-of-line feedback the average score it got here was 5.5 which would have been a very secure horizontal thumb with upward tendencies.
    If you look at what the map tries to achieve, and then look at what it does achieve one can't possibly give it a thumb down.
    No way.
    One can't give a map like DM-Ghostmine a thumb down.
    And if one does it is idiocy, nothing short of it.

    That's just an assumption.
    It could be more akin to a Letter Grade, or anything the reviewer wants it to be. Leaving the whole thing basically a subjective score of "like" vs. "dislike"

    if you have 10 points, and you take away 2 points of the score just for an technical detail, from wich the whole community says its good, then u got a problem......

    Okay...
    So if a map is like fun and has great playability but the mapper deleted brushes no smo-player would ever miss to save file size that would constitute a "bad thing" an therefore recieve a thumbs down. On the other hand if the map just was technically brillant save bot paths, again would get the tumbs down. Well, I guess any demerit would be basis for a thumbs down. In that light, I should have rated Jerramie's DM-Alcatraz a thumb down after finding over a dozen flaws, but CliffyB found the map to be worthy of "Ownage". Silly me for ending up with a 7.5, shoulda been a 4??? (by Wolf's Cumspire Cotex % rating, oops, couldn't resist the homonym).
    I think Sunspire is off to a good start, and I'm happy that someone else has a review site after so many good ones fading after the fad had died. I encourage you to continue so we (NC and SC) can start toe to toe on UW.
    Don't in anyway misconstrue that I think either NaliCity or myself perfect. I have my tastes in maps that don't always agree with our readers and if not in a good mood can be sufficiently harsh, and in the same vien sometimes too generous if a map appeals to my senses. I will be forever your's and SC's critic NaliGirl, welcome to "The Wonderful World of Reviewing" ;)
