    Sadly, that's something that happens a lot with Maps. An example would be Green TD. Everybody thinks his edit is better or that different.
    It's not only a risk but a reality, reviewers will have to go through, restricting reuploads and stuff unless there are obvious differences that make sense.

    It's a good point, but I feel there's a difference between creative work/edits and technical work/edits.
    Edited WC3 models have some added creative value which should be protected to an extent in the context of this site, while ports are just the original work with some technical work done to make it function in WC3.

    That would be great to have some news , because we don't even know how to upload the ported models yet , like 90% are not approved and i'm not sure what method you guys use to approve them . BTW. Looking forward to it , this is a huge step on bringing together all the different communities under a single flag , huge respects to the staff.
