    If the map is well-rounded but will get more content over time but doesn't have blank spots lacking content, it can be approved despite "not being done". Done means it's well-rounded and can be played to the end and has winning conditions if appropriate.

    So now I could assume Media Manager == Arena Moderator. :peasant-thumbs-up:

    No offense but that answer doesn't help too much against confusion, towards who takes responsibility in arena. It's not directed at you, but someone at least should know, or could answer. As for example on latest arena discussions there was like no arena-mod interaction. Or if it's not clear on staff side, that's totally okay, too, if it's at least somehow transparent. And together with your statement that Mythic, Media Manager, is the person who manages Arena, it just got more confusing.

    Mythic helps out in the arena but is mostly the news and PR guy. Those two often overlap.

    ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
    • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
    • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
    • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

  9. Rather than posting an entirely new topic, I'll just drop a quick line here if that's okay :p

    Just a quick sanity check on my end - I see some people (like me) are still working with 1.27b or earlier. I assume that's all fine for the map section/forums? I got the installer from the Battle.net forums here so I assume it's okay to link to that as well. Cheers :p

    Thanks in advance :)

    Hi everyone! I've posted a skin on Hive, without noticing that there is a separate section for Reforged skins. How can I move my skin from the normal Skins section, to the Reforged HD Skins section, without deleting the entire bundle?

    Use the green Report button and mention it. A moderator will move the post/thread.
