I have a policy which does seem to reduce the harsh words toward each other. I do make an effort to contact an author of a campaign 3 times over 3 weeks before I go ahead and repair/fix/convert their campaigns. Most time folks are ok with me working on their stuff because they aren't interested in maintaining it anymore or they just don't respond at all which makes me feel the work is abandoned all together. I usually can figure that out for myself from the comments it gathers over time also. However, on occasion I have someone who doesn't want their stuff fixed and I just leave it lie. This has only happened once. Not a biggie as there are over 1600 campaigns out here that need love, most of them 1 maps or 2 maps etc that aren't finished. Add a few of those together and you can have a killer campaign. :) This method gives new life to old campaigns that would otherwise fall to the wayside basically wasting all the hard work the original author out into them. Trust me, sometimes just fixing them up takes enough work in itself. One thing for certain is that I do try to make my best effort also at fixing up the campaigns. I don't know everything but I am way persnickety about my work. However, you know what they say about pleasing everyone. :) On the topic of porting L4D1 campaigns, I know there are folks out here who don't appreciate it for a myriad of reasons. Not sure why? As long as I got credit for my contribution I personally would feel flattered that someone felt my work was worth their effort to pursue. I guess this is where I interject a "to each their own" on that one. Well guys, Peace out and happy creating. Off to run my son home :) PLUR - Timelord out.;

Thanks, Dave, I know there are many who appreciate what you and Huck do!

I guess you're just more sociable than Huck or just willing to explain yourself.

Which is all I've ever done but it makes me appear to be "defending" the "bad guys".

And I still find it funny I don't see anyone complain about you doing what you do... it's just Huck.

Now if Rayman or whatever "staff" is still left would actually clean up the harassment from RainingMetal and Hortenc.

"Fixed_zoey" from the topless spitter user needs to be removed.
When y'all can be bothered, of course.

Noticed something unrelated to thread itself, but I find it hilarious:
"Content that is not allowed on GameMaps.com"
"Copyrighted content or content without due credit."
goodbye to more than half the website xD
You... I know you.

User has already repeatedly stolen my mods before... and now including screenshots.
He also thinks he's clever and social banned me from commenting further proving he's a thief.
You should just ban this guy.

Edit: I made a second account to get around his attempt of social banning to warn others.
