ok. One vote per IP, that's not that hard to do is it? Personal filtering should be administrated too. Ik Pansck doesn't want to have to do a lot of work but there are still atleast three active admins here right? If you don't feel a map is worthy remove it from MOTW. The people who truly contribute to bwm will care, even if spammers scream fascism.
Remove a vote if you don't feel they have a right to vote. BWM is not necessarily a democratic site. I can't speak for everyone but I trust the admins not to abuse (much).
People with no limited mapping skills (or who have shown none) should not vote. If they don't understand mapping then they should not contribute, that would ruin the site.
I thought my first maps were gosu (before I knew what "gosu" was :) ), I was wrong, and through time and effort learned what I learned about mapping. I make maps better than each previous one (generally) and can give constructive comments on others' maps (usually). For some I've given essay length comments on how to fix everything I see wrong. I feel for the "noob" mapper cuz I was one.
A noob map should be used to become a better mapper, but to make one MOTW is retarded. What I've done as a bwm member I think makes me a contributer to bwm. Someone who spams acounts to try and get a map to win which *clearly* has problems and much room for improvement is not contributing to bwm in a positive way, and should not be allowed to harm the system.
Don't ban them, let them learn over time; making DF MOTW is not however teaching anyone anything good...
Don't worry i have admin rights too, if someone dare to make DF MotW i will delete the newspost untill someone remove my admin rights.
Sorry GriG, you might be the only bulgarian mapper here and me, but this doesn't mean that i will cover your mistakes in mapping. You don't have to hear it from me. Everyone is pointing the problem(s) whit your map(s).
I have contacted Panschk.. if IP's are the same, im sure they will (the smurfed accounts) will be deleted along with the main account. Problematic members should not be tolerated.. expect a new topic about this from panschk soon. everything should be mentioned in that thread.
1) I do not log IPs (yet). Maybe I can do it later, but the difference between grig making smurf accounts and pushing his maps and grig telling his friends (who use other IPs of course) to just blindly vote his map is not that big anyway.
2) Just make whatever you think deservers motw the winner. "Winning" the vote gives you no right to a free newspost and publicity, neither the incredible fame of a MOTW-award.
I hope you manage to decide stuff like that on your own, my interest for SC and mapping is just too low atm to spend much time testing maps or to just read all the threads here...
