    Hello everyone,

    Just wanted to provide an update on some minor rule changes to the contest. To help protect map makers from popularity bias so that maps are solely judged on their quality and not on the popularity or how big of a following the map maker has in the community, the following rules are now in affect:

    1. When submitting a map for review, the map maker must remove any markings or mention that associates the map to their identity. This includes but is not limited to the map loading/splash screen and mod files. These files may be changed/added back in when the map is being submit for Final Review.
    2. Streaming* or posting the map for submission on Twitch, forums or social media is prohibited.

    If a map maker does not oblige by these rules from this point forward, their submitted map(s) will not be eligible for the Community Vote segment of the Picking the Winners process of the contest. This means, their submitted map(s) will only be eligible for a max of 40 out of 50 possible points available.

    *An exception to rule #2 above is if a map maker streams all or multiple contest maps while remaining anonymous and non-bias (judging, describing, and giving feedback on them equally) regarding which map may be theirs.

    I also highly recommend using only ONE building tileset per map. Not doing so causes performance issues not to mention has generally negative aesthetic appeal. Not doing so could severely limit your chances of advancing in the contest.

    Are there any exceptions to this recommendation? E.g. the urban tilesets don't offer any churches, This is kinda contradictng to urban settings.

    Yes. If it looks natural and doesn't cause any performance issues than it is fine.

    Kyle, is it true that if a map has been in the workshop, but has been incomplete, that it cant be submitted to the map contest? Thanks
