Yes well I was thinking about publishers and how they handle the games and stuff. They publish it, obviously, but they also create the box art, manage the advertising and basicly round off the project. So, I thought about what would happen if we had publishers that "published" the scenarios that our designed here. They can tell the creator if the scen/campaing or whatevr is good or not and if they do like it and decide to publish (which is a good thing ) they manage the advertising (create the threads in a number of diffrent AoM fourms), design bitmaps for it etc. It would basicly give the creator a load off their mind. Is this a good idea or is it just crap and pointless ?

Hmmm...but it would really destroy the persons confidence if publishers rejected it...and then they would just release it anyway...

Well, I like the idea if a publisher looked at my map. I think if they'd reject it, as long as they give good, vlaid reasons, then it'd be great. It's like not listening to a doctor if you realese it anyway, so long as the publisher is a well respected and professional.

Releasing a map through a scenario design team is like publishing it, in a way. You get a webpage for it where people can download, places to show screenshots, list features, a project picuture, and you get it advertized in forums like these.

OK, but if we do, we can set up a sticky post(if Cheezy accepts) where you see the e-mail of the(or more) Tester(s) who know a lot about designing, they can give suggestions and tips how they can make it better, they will do this at a kind way not like: MAN YOUR SCENARIO SUCKS GET LOST STOP DESIGN BLAH BLAH... that's not really nice to hear when you are trying to design

I prefer not. First, we have limited people who are experienced with the editor,
second, they don't have that kind of time to playtest so many scn, they have their own projects to do.
Third, such public playtesting can easily set up a prejudice for or against the scn. IMO it is best done with PM, instant msg, or email.

How about we either release our scenario normaly or through a design team? Who wants to waste time advertising for someone else's scenario and not get paid for it?
