Hello everyone. Recently, I've noticed an increasing amount of submissions to what I would consider the wrong gallery folder. So far, I've just moved the maps to the right folders, but it would of course be great if everyone puts their maps in the right gallery themselves. Even though we've changed the name 'Alternate World' to 'Alternate Earth', there still seems to be some confusion about what kind of maps should be in which folders. I hope therefore that this overview clears up any confusion there might be about where to submit the maps to. If anyone has different ideas about what fits where, please comment and we can decide what definition fits best, as this is my personal interpretation.

This is the folder for all resources which can be used to make maps. Think about tutorials, brushes, textures, map items, etc.

This folder is meant for maps depicting an entire fictional world. The definition of 'world' can change of course, but generally this folder is meant for maps which show all of some world and not just parts. This folder is not meant for maps of our own Earth, they can be submitted to Real World.

This folder is meant for maps depiction region of a fictional world, most maps fall into this category. Again, maps depicting a region of our own Earth can be submitted to Real World.

This folder is meant for all maps which have a tactical/game purpose. The main example are dungon maps, but also floor plans of castles and towns with a grid can be found in this folder.

Real World:
This folder is meant for all maps depicting a truthfull version of our own Earth, be it historical or of the present. They can either be of the entire world or just of regions. Remember that this group is meant for original maps, so a scan of an atlass will still not be accepted ;).

Science Fiction:
This folder is meant for maps depicting a future world or region, this will include most space maps (except those which are a realistic version of the world as we now know it ;) )

Town & City Maps:
This folder is for all maps depicting fictional human settlements, so from villages to large cities.

Alternate Earth:
This folder is meant for maps of alternative versions of our own earth. In practice, these will mostly be alternate history maps, so if you have an alternate history map, this is the folder to submit to. Maps of any purely fictional region/world which are not meant to depict a place which was originally historically real can be submitted to Regional or World, not to this folder.

This folder is for any map which doesn't fit any of the descriptions above. If you believe this to be the case, you can submit to this folder. Examples are a map of a Wyvern lair, a map of a ship and a map of a tide pool.

Hello, guys. What is I'm looking for a person to commission a set of maps? Is there I was I can look for those, aside from clicking on every member here? :>

Depends what kind of style you're looking for, traditional? fantasy? Real-World?
kevintheradioguy Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2016  Professional Artist
Fantasy. DnD, to be specific :>

Hey Kevin...
Best thing I can tell you is the website Cartographer's Guild
They have a sub-forum area for making a map request -…
Members of the site can then respond to your request with links to their portfolio and what they would charge to do the map.
That's the best way to go about it, I think. Hope that helps. Cheers, John

unfortunately not something I can help with but perhaps ask someone like :iconsirinkman:

I've still not received a reason why my map was rejected. It is not a scan of a atlas. It is original work and I created one similar to it for 1914 Europe.

I spent probably 1 month working on it.…

Your map was rejected because it received four votes rejecting it before it received four votes accepting it. There are thirty-one staff who can vote on submissions here and each one has their own way of determining whether or not to accept a submission. We have no rules governing this and leave it to each person to decide for themselves. We don't hold them accountable for their votes and we don't require them to justify their reasoning.

Your other map was likely accepted because four different people voted to accept it first. That does not guarantee a similar map will be accepted.

Personally, I would not have voted to accept what appears to be a very basic manipulation of a Google Earth screenshot. I'm sure you put a good deal of research into it and recreating the borders of that era was probably time-consuming. However, the bulk of the work in terms of pixel-count is not your own, and the work you did do isn't very interesting aesthetically or representative of artistic talent or technical skill. I know there are many such maps in the Real World and Alternate Earth folders, but I typically do not vote to accept them. I don't know why those four people voted how they did, however, and I likely never will because I'll never ask.

Hopefully this answered your question.

While I disagree with your standard of voting, I certainly appreciate your honesty and time in answering my question. 

I've seen many a map or other "cartographic" representation here that should not be here that were less aesthetically pleasing than mine. But that's neither here or nor there.

Thanks again.

P.S. For the record. There's quite a bit more to it than "basic manipulation". The final jpeg was certainly simple. But to enjoy the actual item, one should download the kmz file and use it in Google Earth. But unless you do that, you'll never know.

Probably rejected because most of it is blank
