Hello Folks!! By Saig - Thursday, March 23, 2000
Hello! Saig here, informing you people that I am now an official "GMD Map Review Slave". It seems as though R1CH might have caught some of my work over at the Gloom Awakening and assumed I might be of worth to help review over at the GMD. I hope my stay here is welcome!! Ive already posted a review, just to test out the excellent review script that you all hear R1CH gloating about on the IRC Channel. You shouldnt doubt his words, the script works great!
Anyway, I think I've said too much. Later folks!


A new map - LV426 By R1CH - Thursday, March 16, 2000
A terraforming facility was set up on the remote planet LV426 approximately three months ago to prepare the planet for colonization. Three days ago all contact with the outpost was lost. The marines are being sent to investigate...

So goes the description of The Pyro's new map, LV426. Here's some shots for ya:

User comments for reviews! By R1CH - Thursday, March 9, 2000
I have just updated the GMD Script to allow you, yes, YOU to post what you think of the maps. Simply goto any review from the list, and you will find a nice little box at the end of the review where you get YOUR say.

Also, don't forget to send me some nice mail telling me how cool the GMD script is :P

The GMD script is LIVE!! By R1CH - Monday, March 6, 2000
Look on the left to see the all-new funky groovy Reviews section. All of those reviews have been painstakingly converted to the new review script format, which allows us to easily change the format of reviews, modify them, add new ones, etc.

Many thanks to Gumby, who spent a long time converting all the maps, adding map data and sorting them into chronological order.

Well what are you waiting for? Go use! :)

Map Poll Reset By Dragonslicer - Monday, March 6, 2000
For my first action as an official helper monkey to the GMD, I've requested that we reset the map poll. This means that all of the maps currently have 0 votes. Everyone should vote for any map that they want on the OneCall rotation, and I'll build the rotation off of the results. I might edit the list a little to prevent things like the little Gloom2/G2SE problem we've had recently, as well as customizing the rotations for the individual servers. Anyway, go out and vote, and get your favorite maps played on everyone's (read "my") favorite server, OneCall.
