I'm not saying that it is somehow the "duty" of people to submit maps. But I am saying that when the community as a whole produces this sorry a crop of maps, the community as a whole must bear some responsibility for not having that kind of spirit.

Maybe this is a little ridiculous, how I'm wording it...it is always a choice to submit to the OLDC, and I guess hardly anyone chose to do so this time. I don't know why I chose the words "anger" and "shame", as they are ridiculous exaggerations of what I actually feel, which is really just mild disappointment. It's just sort of an expectation thing...since all contests before had much more creativity on a regular basis, there can be an illusion that some right has been taken away or some duty has been ignored. But...yeah, you're right about it.
