Do you guys think we should just limit the Map of the weeks to just maps that are made within like 14-21 days? Because seeing failed candidates from the past constantly popping up in the next motw listings is getting ridiculous. It's alright if it's just a few maps doing this, but when I'm seeing about 4 or 5 maps doing this, i think it's getting stupid and defeating the purpose of the "map of the WEEK."
And also, adding old maps from the past (not necessarily ones that were constantly submitted to MotW contest) is also dumb in my opinion because I think Map of the Week should be mostly focused around good somewhat fresh incoming maps.
map of the week is centered around map quality, and pretty much every single map on this site is fresh because none of them get played. let the BEST maps become MOTW, not just ones that are made at the right time.
Pretty much what you are suggesting is quantity over quality, millenium. Even though if everyone on this were to sit down and shit out a map every week the chances of making some good ones are greater. It would suck because There would be a time where people made a bunch of good maps all at once. But Mostly there would would be times where people make imbalanced trash that is boring to look at and play. so the map of the week would be 90% crap.

And that's why good maps sometimes come again week after week. We had weeks with great maps and others with low ones. Just look through the MOTWs, especially at the beginning. Some are... well, they are motws and we won't change it afterwards :P
