Creation/Clem Maps: Huh?

Postby Olong2 » Wed Jul 17, 2013 4:22 pm

Maybe this has been covered, but why do the Creation/Clem maps go to outside links, therefore avoiding ratings and reviews? Not that anyone would objectively rate or review most of that work poorly, lest you had a political axe to grind. Still...

Creation always had very strict requirements about where their maps could be hosted/distributed from. Clem/Creation gave at least a couple of people permission to host their maps so if The Tain is pointing to external links then the Tain must not have permission to host the maps, and the Tain admins are doing the honorable thing and respecting Creation's wishes.

Or more so just trying to make sure that Clem doesn't get pissed since if it wasn't for him Creation's stuff would be posted normally like everyone else's.

I don't see how bringing personalities into the mix is helpful.

Clem was, by all accounts, the head of Creation (along with being project leader on most Creation maps, and contributing color maps to the vast majority of projects), so whether Creation's rules were his idea alone or a consensus of Creation members is really irrelevant - they are the rules that were distributed with every Creation map. The rules are what they are, and The Tain is following them. No need to hold grudges :^), and kudos to The Tain - in these days of "everything should be free I will download whatever I want whether it's legal or not" - for respecting mapmaker's stated distribution wishes.
