map vote, or new maps?

I am trying to decide where to put my UT energy. Please let me know your choice.

Expanding on the options:
Mapvote - I would need to write my own mapvote. Could be awhile before ready.
New maps, poor quality - I put up new maps with hardly any edits, turnaround time, maybe a week?
New maps, good quality - I edit a map to give it good gameplay, turnaround time, maybe 6 - 8 weeks.

Thank you!

I personally do not like map vote. In theory sounds great, you have a variety of maps to choose from, but then they keep voting for the same 3 or 4 maps, usually the stock ones, especially the way overplayed deck16  Sad , no, I prefer custom quality maps, as long as they are good, I don't mind which one I get.

The winner of poll, obviously, is good maps. I was hoping it was going to be something else, I was looking for a bit of a change. Having a good map on the go for weeks on end can be tiring. So I'm going to compromise, I'll go halfway between quick and quality.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.

It would be nice to see the server's map list. The good thing about map vote. You see the map list. You will know what they like by what they vote for. and people will probably stay longer.
I like this server because it's a simple server without all the weird add on's. I was selfish with my vote, not wanting to change.

Well yeah, but anyway, on the stats page one can see the maps that have been played over the years, so one can have an idea of what is coming. I don't know how many player who go on the server find the link though. I keep coming back to the server not only because deathmatch is my favorite mode, but because I prefer the custom maps way more than the stock ones. I go to other servers and its deck again, codex again, morpheus again, phobos again  Sad... I also get a great vibe here, I told Helen I am definitely no pro, and I get crushed by veterans with way more hours than me, but I do not mind, I am in it for the fun mostly.  Grin I can deal with that. What I don't have to deal with is attitude and trolling, and many servers have lost control over that, so I end up leaving.

Understandable, I am like that too, if I like something, I don't want it to change.

Ok just to give and idea, I will highlight some of the maps I have played and enjoyed on the server (personal taste, everyone has their own). Coke (large and regular), Compulsive, Distinctive, Alone In the Dark, Arktos (the planes map  Grin), Atropos, Vengador, Verdana, Unit (password room map), Foom and Foomflood, Empowered, Deck40 (yeah I know Helen, winter map), Real World Gone Bad, Sepulchrum, Judith, Lostlands, Mad Scientist, Arkhan, Fade, Toll, Words, Defiant, Ride The Dragon, Cityzen, Axon, Sweet Nothings, Vault City.

The map that so far frustrates me the most is the Z-axis Inspector. And that pink panther theme remix does not help.  Sad Does not mean I won't play it, but still...

Where have I been? Or where has Helen been? Most likely Helen, cause I have been on the server almost every night, even with the bots  Grin Helen is probably either working very hard on that map, watching hockey or drinking smoothies.  Wink

I have a bit of an online chess addiction. I play 1+0 bullet for hours. However I have been playing too much so it is time for a pledge. I pledge not to play online for one month. That should free up some time.

That's fair. It is always good to take breaks, so you don't burn out. You are always missed, you make the server fun.  Smiley I will eventually at some point go back to playing MAME arcade games with my fight stick. But UT99 is too addictive.  Grin
