I wanted to be counted.

I like the map changes. Anything to keep the game fresh is good.

Sunday would be awesome, but I'd suggest invite only.


I respectfully disagree. Even if the person attending is a total newb this could be a great chance to teach them.

...ok, now I have to ask...why are we changing even more rules?


Pfft, just wait till I'm done with the new FAQ. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ;)

As to the transparency concerns, I do think Brad may have taken for granted how well aware most players are about how often the floor rules are updated. A post should have been up to at least remind them that an update was possible, possibley get feedback on stuff other than maps. Still free to dismiss it if feels like it. I know I'm not updating everything someone posts on my FAQ threads. As for who he discusses it, he is doing the work (and taking the blame). There are a very few select people I will be discussing some things I'm writing in the new FAQ, and it isn't the general public. While the Floor Rules probably requires less specialty than the actual rules, he still can't make all decisions by committee. As someone who constantly upsets players with rulings, I can understand why he would be a bit defensive.

Sunday makes sense for a map seminar. It's a bit tricky because any time I spend out of my booth during exhibit hall hours, my wife needs to cover it all by herself, and it seems like people always come by looking for me when I'm not there.

As for invite-only: If this was a self-run event that I put in the program book, I'd want to broaden the scope enough so that people with an interest in cartography could join us and ask questions, too. But I think it's too late to put something in the on-site book, so it would almost have to be a word-of-mouth event, which would be pretty close to invite-only...

Anyway, I'll look into it and try to get a room if you folks think there's enough interest to justify the event.

Just a suggestion:

It might be a good idea to reference the map erratas for Theed and Cantina directly in the floor rules map section. (host the pics on swmresources and/or here and give links)

Cantina:
