    Gotta love how my comment was completely ignored.
    - Considering it comes over to me as more offensive than anything Flad said.

    Sometimes, silence is in itself a statement.
    Your comment wasn't ignored, not by me at least.
    I just didn't have anything to add to what you said.
    You asked a question, which i didn't know the answer to, because i didn't realize there was a difference in the terrains displayed in this thread, so i couldn't answer as to, if i suggested it for "top 10" or "legendary" since i still do not understand the difference.
    And also, since you have already decided that the terrain i suggested isn't good enough, why should i answer it? It made no sense to me..
    As for the second part of your comment, it was your opinion, what do i have to add to another person's opinion?

    So, i simply chose not to say anything.

    For the top-ten list?

    Well, we'd have to brush up the Jury first.

    That could work, but we still sit around with that problem that back when I merged the top ten list thread and the legendary thread I let famous stay as "top poster" and without moderator powers, I'm unable to edit his post >.>

    I'm sure you can just ask Ralle or an admin to edit it for you.

    People should nominate, and whoever is in charge can make a decision. I guess someone needs to go get permissions. I might not be a great choice since I'm going to be on low activity for 2 months due to work.

    Alrighty comrades, terrainers and lovers.

    We're going to revive the Top Ten Terrains List, and uncle Keiji want's YOU on it.
    Keep terraining, get better, produce quality and you'll eventually end up on a list
    among other great terrainers, for glory and praise.

    I'd like you all to visit fladder's thread: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/terrain-board-267/top-10-terrain-nominations-237093/
    And start posting your nominations for the list, we're going to update it shortly,
    be sure your terrain is nominated, lest it won't be there when we update it!

    Edit: Also, updated this thread somewhat, now the top ten list is at the top and the legendary terrains part is at the bottom.
    I did this because it just makes more sense, seeing as the top ten list is a contemporary thing whereas the legendary terrains
    part haven't been changed in ages and probably won't be changed in ages either. I also fixed thedeathunterxx's terrain, so now
    it's previewed correctly. Sorry for any inconveniences that's been making for you, but we've not had a bloody moderator in a
    while.

    ...shortly after.

    So, now I've (finally) updated the list with the final scores from the Jury, so if it looks a little different from the poll, then that's why.

    We'll be updating the list again sometime around christmas/winter vacation, or in the spring. Whatever suits me best,
    suffice to say: Keep terraining, who knows, maybe you'll end up on the Top Ten Terrains list!

    There really ought to be links to the full-resolution versions of those.

    How hard is it to go find them yourselves through the "Complete List of Terrain Galleries" thread?
    Also, I see no purpose in keeping a list of which old terrains that's been on the list, but I'll see what I can arse myself into doing >.>
    - So much gratitude...

    Edit: Alright, added high res links to all the top ten terrains, now,
    persuade me to add a list of past entries and I MIGHT do it.

    Well, maybe not in the top 10 list but they should maybe be listed in the hall of fame.

    No, that'd defeat the entire purpose of the top ten list.

    It's meant to be a temporary spotlight thing,
    as to entice terrainers to keep terraining if they want
    to keep staying on the list, and if you really want to
    view the terrains again, you are more than welcome
    to find them in their respective galleries.

    okay, but that raises the question why are the other terrains beneath the list still there? Shouldn't they be replaced the others who didn't make it into the top 10 but got votes?

    It'll make viewing the terrain all the more enjoyable and easy, that's all.
    Plus, it's not such a complicated task.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about, but if you're talking about the Legendary Terrains part, then my only answer to that is that it is separate from the top ten list.

    The Top Ten Terrains is a dynamic listing of simple viewing pleasure, while the Legendary Terrains are timeless pieces in the sense that they all represent a cornerstone of the evolution of terraining. These are pioneers, terrains that brought forth new techniques or others. That's why.

    Maybe I'll look into updating it a tad, to make that clearer.
