-You can make any type of surf map you wish.
-There can only be ONE mapper per map.
-The deadline for the entries will be September 29th. No exceptions.
-All maps will be judged by the general public of Solidsurf.info ± pure unbiased judgement.

If you think you've got what it takes to be a winner, put up or shut up!
Post in this thread so I can mark your name down for the contest
if you have not posted in this thread saying you're going to make a map
then your entry will not be accepted on due date!
You can enter the contest at any time, even on the last day.

I'm in. It probably wouldn't be fair if I submitted evolution or stickybutts, and I don't want SSMC in their names anyway, but I'll make something.

I think Buck should use one of his servers as the contest server for testing. He can password it, and put the password in this thread?

Added contest bonus: $100 Cash prize directly from FAJ if the winning map is a combat map and I like it.

As with everything I do, the decision will likely be decided at the last minute and be mostly arbitrary in nature.

Its hard to judge a skill map against a combat map because even though both maps involve surf, they are made up of completely different elements. The only thing you can judge those maps on its aesthetics. Everything else is too different to be compared.

I think you are confusing judging/comparing maps with assigning objective qualitative asessments.

That, and have found that the aesthetics of a map are pretty much the least important element to me.

Anywho, it isn't about a quality judgement. The statement is just: If the winner is a combat map, and I personally enjoy the winning map: they get a bonus prize. Like an achievment, but for life. Then they can post in the mapping=money thread with new found personal life experience!

Cash prizes can bring out good/new stuff. People get less lazy when there is money on the line.

I only made ny_platinum because of the Akron Contest  \
