I think you should desist in making stupid assumptions, based on nothing but opinions. It was at the suggestion of admins that this subject be discussed, at a meeting, to determine whether or not it would be a good idea that it be furthered after that point. Coincidentally a member posted the same idea on the forum after it had already been suggested by admins. However what we have here are a number of members making silly assumptions based on nothing but some stray comments which may or may not apply. As I have said and will keep saying, admins will discuss the merits of the proposal, and if they think it worth bringing to the forum at large, then there will be a post made, with various options for people to discuss in an adult way. As far as treating admins like naughty school kids, I think you are being grossly unfair to school kids, many of who show more of an adult attitude than you do.
What people have to realise, and if they don't then I am quite astonished, is that as owner of the servers, TC, makes all the changes to the servers and no one else. Now many proposals get repeated over time, and receive answers, and these answer are not going to change over intervening periods of time, despite the same people asking the same questions repeatedly. When a player is told no we cannot do something, it is not someone being high and mighty it is because the same question has repeatedly been asked and the same answer given.
It was at MrsRapidByte's and her predecessors behest that a lot of the maps were changed on the servers for the maps you are talking about.
The map section is the domain of whoever is in charge of that section, and there are a number of people who know that it is the head of that section which makes the choices. I have appointed many different admins to that task, and left it entirely at their discretion to select maps for the servers, and I am sure MrsRapidByte will verify this.
Another fact you don't know is that I hold off putting maps onto the servers until they have been tested and accepted by players, again MrsRapidByte will be able to verify this.
Admins and players proposals get listened to, when they frame a proposal with a coherent question and some examples, just as Marmot has done on his first post, something that many people do not do, opting for the stamping of feet and acting like naughty school kids, in many instances.
I think anyone would have a hard time with such antics from people who are supposed to be sensible.
