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?

I just got back but I will share some thoughts with you and others who may be asking themselves this question.

Many Alternate Earth/AH maps are not really what we (individual voters) are looking for despite the group itself incorporating the category and encouraging their submission. The reason for this is that many present as low-effort jobs that aren't really transformative of stock world maps. Despite whatever steps were taken in their creation, we often see the ability to reproduce them near-effortlessly with a few custom paths.

This is a problem because we aren't showcasing your worlds, but the images you create to represent them. If that worldbuilding isn't more than starkly represented in your map then it isn't likely to stand out from the waves of AH we're often hit with.

We've never enforced mandatory voting and we never will. We're also pretty lax on standardization - some people will accept anything that is correctly categorized, others enforce their personal standards and aesthetics, most people falls somewhere in between. That's not something I'm willing to take away from them and I'm sure the other co-founders feel similarly.

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.
