Hello all,

This is just a general question for the map making committee, but I'm posting it here in case others would want to get into the action.

I have been checking how many maps currently exist on all the databases, and the number of individual maps is somewhere in the ball park of 100000 maps. I was thinking that if we sorted by letter and by player, it would be easy to find new map types... but this only works if the selection of maps are very low. The question I am posing is this...

What type of categories and selection would you suggest for making maps easier to sort through?

There are some examples of some of these categories....

AWN Design Maps

AWBW Map Search

WWN Map Categories

I think choosing the right amount of categories and "tags" would go a long way into organizing the huge number of maps that we'll have in the database. Another idea I've heard was to let random maps appear from the list. We can also have someone officially rate the maps for balance competitively. There is plenty that we can do to make the process easier, but the earlier that I can get ideas the better.
