I want to provide map author some comments/critism/bug reports etc. Unfortunately, the topic are locked. Why is it locked? I dont think map released topic should be locked to prevent necro. because, those map topic are the only practical way to communicate to the author and map players.

Anyway, great site. Long live WAW.

They get automatically locked if nobody comments on the topic in a few months(forgot exactly how long, but yeah)

I would vote for the topics to be remain unlocked. New player might try good old maps and want to provide criticism.

Is it possible to lift the rules?

Thanks.

You could provide criticism, but why would you if the maps are probably abandoned and will not be updated?

The point is, if the map is actively discussed, it means it is actively played/popular. And doesnt get buried. Maps that are not really good, gets buried faster.

The good thing with ugx forum is that you can sort my by date of thread created. So for the people that doesnt gives a shit about old maps, they can use that feature. For people that gives a shit about old but good maps, they can try old maps that are actively discussed.

If I have messages that are absolutely essential, I can PM the devs. Unfortunately, PM is unavailable to me at the moment.

If Im a mapper, I love to hear constructive criticism on my old maps. I love to hear my maps are being actively played even after years of release.

WAW is dying. BO3 has released its map editor. Having good maps sorted at higher thread might helps. Waw newcomers (esp during waw sale), might benefit from this.

Just my 2 cents.

Ok you're kind of all over the place with this post so, if the map is actively discussed then it won't be locked. But if the topic has been dead for more than 3 months (thread lock time) don't you think it'd be smart to keep it locked than having new comers add nothing to the topic. Also it's good to get criticism asap, not months after the topic is locked and they've already progressed from that point. Finally I don't see how new mappers can benefit from old locked posts when it doesn't relate to them.

It's smart to keep an old post locked then having someone post on it for no reason and drown out newer content.
