Hello everyone. Recently, I've noticed an increasing amount of submissions to what I would consider the wrong gallery folder. So far, I've just moved the maps to the right folders, but it would of course be great if everyone puts their maps in the right gallery themselves. Even though we've changed the name 'Alternate World' to 'Alternate Earth', there still seems to be some confusion about what kind of maps should be in which folders. I hope therefore that this overview clears up any confusion there might be about where to submit the maps to. If anyone has different ideas about what fits where, please comment and we can decide what definition fits best, as this is my personal interpretation.

This is the folder for all resources which can be used to make maps. Think about tutorials, brushes, textures, map items, etc.

This folder is meant for maps depicting an entire fictional world. The definition of 'world' can change of course, but generally this folder is meant for maps which show all of some world and not just parts. This folder is not meant for maps of our own Earth, they can be submitted to Real World.

This folder is meant for maps depiction region of a fictional world, most maps fall into this category. Again, maps depicting a region of our own Earth can be submitted to Real World.

This folder is meant for all maps which have a tactical/game purpose. The main example are dungon maps, but also floor plans of castles and towns with a grid can be found in this folder.

Real World:
This folder is meant for all maps depicting a truthfull version of our own Earth, be it historical or of the present. They can either be of the entire world or just of regions. Remember that this group is meant for original maps, so a scan of an atlass will still not be accepted ;).

Science Fiction:
This folder is meant for maps depicting a future world or region, this will include most space maps (except those which are a realistic version of the world as we now know it ;) )

Town & City Maps:
This folder is for all maps depicting fictional human settlements, so from villages to large cities.

Alternate Earth:
This folder is meant for maps of alternative versions of our own earth. In practice, these will mostly be alternate history maps, so if you have an alternate history map, this is the folder to submit to. Maps of any purely fictional region/world which are not meant to depict a place which was originally historically real can be submitted to Regional or World, not to this folder.

This folder is for any map which doesn't fit any of the descriptions above. If you believe this to be the case, you can submit to this folder. Examples are a map of a Wyvern lair, a map of a ship and a map of a tide pool.

Hey there! I am looking for someone who would be keen to do a commission for a continent map for my worldbuilding. Please anyone let me know

Working on a fantasy map of epic proportions.  Will need pro help to polish it soon.  Can pay in installments or all at once.  I'll send you the map so far you can give me a quote.  Note me for details.

I've just had a submission expire after three weeks in the queue. Looks as if the Founder and at least three of the Co-Founders haven't even logged into dA in months. I'll resubmit, once, but if I can't get fair consideration this time around then I'll have to conclude this is a dying group.

And the submission is declined in less than a day this time around. Nobody could bother to consider the map the first time, but it took almost no time for enough voters to agree to turn it down now. This despite it being similar to two other maps I submitted a while back that were accepted without issue. This despite many other maps, some of them of no higher quality than mine, which were accepted in the meantime. No one had the courtesy to explain why, either, although I can guess.

This is the worst thing about dA. The best way to get wide viewership is to participate in groups, but it's very difficult to tell which groups are actually active and ready to give all submissions fair and equal consideration. This one, apparently, is not any more. Fair enough - I won't waste my time or yours any longer.

You guys still active because my submission list is clogged up. There's five maps actually and none of them get any notification.

I still am.

Checking the log for submissions since like two weeks ago, you have two maps that I saw from there waiting for 2/4 yes-votes and 0/4 no votes. Almost all other things still lingering there had 2 votes one way or another, so it might be there's just been two people active, or that there's four people active and two of them have just skipped a bunch of stuff.

There is a lot of content being submitted so people have probably gotten bored of going through them all by rote. The vote thresholds might be a bit too high when there aren't enough voters.

You really need more people voting.  I had one submission cancelled a few weeks ago because the voting took too long.

Hey, I'm looking to commission a cartographer for a fantasy map - not a whole world, just a certain region. A mountain, to be precise. The style of the map should be like on Paper rather than geographic. Would love an actual on-Paper commission with the physical item being shipped, but would settle for digital as well (I'm in germany, Shipping can get expensive for me).
I'm planning on using it as a little extra content for a Fantasy Story I'm about to release episodically before the year ends, and would like to be able to update it with the Route of the characters as the story progresses, so in case of a digital commission, I'd like to receive the PSD.
If interested, please send me your Rates via Note :)
