FYI here are the search results for "canals" on game banana http://www.gamebanana.com/maps/search?search=canals My map does not even show as well as there are dozens of others maps with "canals" in their names. Why are you the only one with a problem with my map? especially since this is my first level EVER. Also you say the map name needs soul... then why did YOU pick that name also? X(
Do you have something against me? I WORKED SO HARD TO MAKE MY FIRST MAP A MAP... Also do you have anything against the map itself? It's just a name and your making large posts complaining about it... there are only so many words in the dictionary. Also I never copied you in any way so it is not violating you...
Why are you making such a big deal about it? My brushes are recognized as my brushes not yours. And besides you mostly copied VALVe >.> All my work is original. every brush I put in there, I made it from scratch. you copied the same idea VALVe had. I stole nothing of yours so just leave me alone.
I'm not trying to advertise my maps, I don't need it. I just want you to name your map somehow else than "dm_canals". I asked you about this five days ago and you don't seem to think about it. I'll ask you again, choose another name for your map, please.
About your map's name - I'd better recommend you to use some non-standart word, and try to use words which begin from first letters of alphabet. If your map is named, for example, like dmabracadabra, it will oftenly appear at the top of the list. I'm always thinking about how "is it, on my map?", and the name of the map often comes just from emotions. If my map is a radioactive swamp, I call it "dmradioactive", not "dmswamp" - the last one is way too simple. And of course, somebody already could use such a simple name (in case of "dmswamp", it's already used). I hope I was helpful.
