How to Post an Approved Map Edit Request


This topic will show you how to correctly post an Approved Map Edit Request. This forum section is for requesting edits to be made to already approved maps. This is a purposefully thorough process to ensure that any necessary edits are made. We wish to take map approvals seriously.

To post a request correctly, follow this form:

Part 1 - Prerequisites:
This will explain in more detail the process of approved map map edit requests.

Spoiler: Show More
We understand the map approval system has its drawbacks, so we have created a forum section for requesting approvals, edits, and removal of inappropriate/outdated/low quality approved maps. We are allowing players to request that their own or other's maps be approved, which allows them to be used in Ranked and Approved gameplay in multiplayer. (Naturally this means only multiplayer maps can be approved)

When a request is made to edit, approve, or remove a map, anyone can comment feedback on the request, giving their own insights and either fighting or helping the case at hand. Feedback may also come from staff members or game development, who while gets the final say in whether a map is approved or not, value community input.

If you're the map owner and the feedback received makes you want to edit the map to make up for that, please cancel your map approval request and re-submit one for the newly edited map with a new topic.


Part 2 - Rules:
This will explain the rules relating to this forum section.

2.1: Your topic title should be in exactly the following format, square brackets and capitals included: "[EDIT REQUEST] map-ID Your topic should follow exactly the format of the Map Edit Form.

2.2: You must first check to ensure the map you are posting has not been posted before. You may post duplicate requests should the edit you're suggesting provide a significantly different result to the other edit request.

2.3: You must not use this forum section to discuss maps, to ask questions, or to post anything other than Approved Map Edit Requests. You may give feedback on a specific map using the topic.

2.4: Any discussion and feedback relating to the request will be posted in the topic for that request. Feedback may not be given, or it can come from other players, from staff members, or from game development.

2.5: If you wish to retract a map edit request, please lock the topic yourself, and change the topic title to "[CANCELLED] map-ID" Do not delete the topic.

2.6: Misuse of this section, including posting incomplete or incorrect approval requests will result in an official forum warning being issued, which can lead to a ban. Please ensure you read and fully understand the process of requesting map approval.

[C]
- Do you think this map need a minor edit, or a major overhaul?:
- In a few words, why is an edit required?: EG, Outdated map, unfair map, map glitches present, etc
- In detail, what exactly is wrong with the map, and what exactly needs to be edited?:
- Any other comments:


Once you've posted the Edit Request, don't touch the map. Wait until a staff member can discuss the required edits with you, and authorise you to make those edits. Once done, let the staff member know, and the map will be rechecked and re-approved.

If you've edited an approved map without authorisation, your map is now an un-approved map and you need to submit a new approval request, not an edit request.
