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.

Guys, I submitted my map on Islamic China and it's still awaiting approval since the 6th of March. Actually, I have five maps and all of them expired before getting any verdict. 

Is there something wrong with my map or this is just an issue with the admin side of things?
Naeddyr Featured By Owner 4 days ago
At a guess, there's maybe half a dozen people actually voting, and a map needs 4 yesses to pass. If it's not a slamdunk, it's pretty likely to get stuck in limbo until someone clears some backlog. AH maps are also less likely to get approved, mainly because this isn't really an AH map group per se, and we get so many crappy ones they taint good ones by association.

I have a map that expired as well for regional and is back in awaiting approval. Others in the past have had similar instances. Is it the quality that results in acceptance or denial?
Naeddyr Featured By Owner 2 days ago
It's just luck. There are only a few people voting and the vote thresholds are high. There is no process, there is no committee, there is no discussion, there is only a vague hivemind of people who mostly go "ok i guess this one is good enough" but occasionally go "this one doesn't appeal to me but i guess someone might want to vote for it so i'll just abstain" to very, very rarely voting no on something.

Abstentions are about as effective as no-votes because there aren't enough people voting as it is, and it is rare for something to get voted down. Usually, it's just someone doesn't like it enough to vote yes, and it gets stuck in limbo.

^ What Naeddyr said. A lot comes down to personal preference and since we've had a saturation of AH maps lately I (and a few others) tend to skip them in favour of more original content. Its like when Game of Thrones got popular and we had an oversatuation of Westeros maps, we just stop voting on them

Hey guys
I have couple maps submitted into Tactical category. is there any reason they are not approved? or just waiting for more votes? I don't know if i should just cancel those.
Naeddyr Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2019
Waiting for one vote.
