Hello employees, Cave Johnson here. You all have permission to take a temporary break from your work to listen to this important company-wide announcement. That is, I gave permission for a mandatory break. Stop what you're doing or you're fired. Also, your pay stops until the break is over.
Every time I look at our little community here, I am reminded of the old site. Now, it wasn't big. Just a simple mapping site. A simple mapping site that produced great maps. These maps were the backbone of the activities on the site. Make 'em from scratch. Spare no expense. And never cut corners. Well, except for when making fancy custom aesthetics with rounded edges, obviously you cut them there. Point is, we had a pretty good thing going. Until, one day, the site up and died. Just like that. And I thought to myself, "Cave, that won't do at all." So I went and I built this site from scratch, with just a text editor and an FTP client. Inspiring stuff. Oh, and some other people helped too. Point is, we're almost done! Still some spit-shine left to put on, but I think it's high time we put ourselves back out there as a portal mapping community. So that's why we're having a contest to promote the site.
Allow me to introduce the first official mAI Mapping Contest! Community building event, with some advertising thrown in. The theme of the contest is Custom Content. A good map doesn't just have a difficult puzzle, it also makes itself look real pretty. Hold on... Greg tells me that the contest also allows audio content. Point is, make your map something special, so the judges will like it. That's right, you're being judged. Stand straighter.
All right, any questions? That was a rhetorical question, as this is a pre-recorded message. All right, get back to work. And get started on those maps!
