John, I am currently trying to rank a map using classic style mapping. Sadly, after I got mods to it, most of them disagrees to what am I mapping, so I ended up (currently) remapping it in modern style while trying to be not to overkill jumps and stuff. As of the current developments in the mapping sector and thr state of ranked maps of today, I sometimes somehow feel hopeless of even passing a map to suit thier preferences, It's just to confusing on how to determine what is rankable and what's not (depends on who will do the checking and stuff). There are some maps that clearly defies logic and explaination on how it is okay (like a certain spike or overmap) to be it that way, and yet it passes though just to avoid the long texts of argument..This is the exact reason why a more conservative mapping community would be a good thing.
I might be writing something longer in the future just to express my view at this topic.
UC is a mapper called UndeadCapulet. You can search him up and see some of his mapsI see. I'm not familiar with his maps, so I can't continue this discussion. Please excuse me.
