Unfortunately, I have been busy with life. Working full time, married, attending grad school in the evenings, and most importantly: haven't been employed by Curse in 4 years. When you see me post announcements, it's done in the little spare time I have, which is why they have been sparse as of late. :(.

Is this the first time Blizzard has acknowledge us!?!
We should be an official link on their page.
Hope we get some new blood.
Blizz has posted about us a couple of times, especially early on, :-).

Wait, you're telling me there's no actual person on this board who has admin powers? Are you joking? I thought Sixen et all were admins?
Sixen was an admin, a long time ago. He sold the site to Curse, stayed on for quite a while as a paid Curse employee, and was then told he was going to lose his admin status because Curse no longer wanted to pay him. AFAIK he then had a talk with Curse and stayed on for free, but I still believe he's lost his admin privileges. I can ban his account, anyway, I know that much (Edit: I don't know how much that says, actually, I can ban every single Curse employee listed below). He hasn't really been around for ages either way and only ever still updates the front page with news occasionally, aside from doing some general maintenance/bot banning. Looking at his log, he did two things on April 28, two things on April 10, and some more things on April 7.
The Curse admins assigned to Mapster are Kaelten, Torhal and Prencher. The latter did some random site security updates on March 5 (but hasn't been here since February before that), Kaelten is around even less than Sixen and though Torhal is banning spammers on a daily basis, he has never even communicated with the mod team, AFAIK.
Hey now, while I don't read every thread of the forums, I do check the site daily.
To those wondering: the guy who made DiabloFans sold it to Curse in 2009. I was brought on as the community manager for DiabloFans. I had been a huge SC1 mapper back in the day and brought this up to the people at Curse who make decisions. Turned out, they were working on SC2Mapster behind the scenes, and they brought me on while it was in development to help make suggestions/decisions regarding how the site would turn out. I then took over the site and grew it from 1 person (myself) to the community that it became. Vjeux was assigned to help me with whatever I needed, at the time, he was a developer intern, or something of the sort.

So there's a warcraft modding forum before a starcraft modding forum. Lame. Still think it should just be one modding forum.
Well... The whole forum is a Starcraft modding forum... This is a warcraft-in-starcraft subform, ;-).

To be fair, I'm getting married in 34 days and am also transitioning into a new job at work (headed to research & development, woo!), so I've been busy, to say the least.
Renee: sorry for slacking, but done, :-). http://www.sc2mapster.com/forums/player-zone/war3-mod/
Thanks for the kick in the ass, Dogmai.

Im especially against a subforum. Not only do I feel like it would breed elitism (which the WC3 and SC2 mapping communities seem to be especially prone to) but also hurt SC2 mapping in a way. A strong WC3 themed mapping community can boost SC2 mapping itself, but if you try to seperate the WC3 stuff from the usual SC2 stuff, we run the risk of further drying out the SC2 mapping community overall and in the end we will be left with a bunch of WC3 themed mappers while SC2 themed mappers dont get any attention.
Im against any sort of seperation, because its all SC2 mapping and should be treated equally.
I think we can just... try it out and see how it goes. I imagine there isn't near enough activity these days to actually have issues like this occur.

Okay sweet, so it seems there will be a couple of you guys there in addition to the RTC winners. We'll definitely need to plan a hang out. I'll be at the community booth on both days so we can meet in that area. I'll update this thread with more details when we get closer to the event.
Let me know if anyone else is coming!
I'd be up for a meetup, too bad there's no formal mapping stuff happening, :-P.
