Featured Map: Le Serpent au Diamant by amconline
Oh, amc, what a beautiful map you've map. The aesthetic is stunning — those perfect gold trails, those gently crumbling arches! — and it makes for such a lovely atmosphere. I have a weakness for maps that feel like real places, and there's nowhere I'd love to explore more than these mysterious ruins. — Tempus_Fugit
Regarding the (lack of) activity of the site
Because of this, I will allow one of the major rules on the site to be broken, if only temporary and within reason: frequency of posts. I will allow users to post as frequently as they want to, within the reasoning of not flooding the hot maps page and not, whether purposefully or unpurposefully, pushing other users' maps off the hot maps page. I trust the users on the site to intrinsically understand what I mean and to be mindful of others on the website.
Secondly, I will attempt an experiment. To give users further reason to post, I will be giving out custom titles to users that have been noticeably active on the site, whether through commenting or posting maps. Because a lot of us have custom titles already, I will allow users two options with this experiment. The first is to make a completely new custom title for them, and the second is to add a title on with a comma (ex., say your custom title is "Captain Obvious", and you want to add "Admiral Oblivious" to it. It will appear as, "Captain Obvious, Admiral Oblivious", with the title separated by a comma.)
Thirdly, I will be taking user criticism on this post [nmaps.net] to see what users think about these changes to the site, and to any changes at all.

NUMACon: Part Two
NUMACon: Part Two
This NUMACon is called Part Two. You must create a map that is a sequel to another map, it may help if the chosen map is well known. Your goal is to have your map resemble the other map’s style, concepts, and visuals without copying them exactly. Post your maps with the tag ‘parttwo’ to enter them into the contest. Every mapper can post up to 3 maps! Happy mapping!
Posting Dates: April 12 to June 1
Tag Happy Hellidays maps with "hellidays"
The future of NUMA: Reviews and other stuff
All active reviewers will remain on the roster for the time being, and I'd ask you to please claim a couple of dates - let's say a minimum of two a month, that sound good? - on this spreadsheet [docs.google.com].
If anybody else wishes to become a reviewer, please PM me with two sample reviews along with links to the maps that they are for. I can't really guarantee anything, but given the vacancies we have, your chances are pretty good of becoming a member of the review team.
Other than that, NUMA has been working pretty smoothly for me so far, but if you find any errors persisting, don't hesitate to contact either any of us admins (that's me, DaggaFork and sunset at the moment) or Tempus_Fugit (who's brother is the hero that managed to return NUMA to functionality) - we can all be reached either by comments on our maps or via the forums.
Happy mapping, and once again, welcome back!
Posting is back!
Haunt Results & NUMACON: Happy Hellidays!

You can submit maps to the Happy Hellidays forum post [forum.droni.es] or to the Happy Hellidays reddit thread [reddit.com]. Submissions must be in before the end of January. There is no limit to submitted maps. If you would like to be a judge for this or any NUMACON in the future send me a PM on the forums. Merry mapping!
