Whoa, did I join just in time for the fall of TWHL?
But you guys are right, there are too many ppl join too fast and submitting crap. Most of my maps get 3/5 and 4/5 ratings (thank god) but whenever I go to the map vaults, I see tons of 1/5's and 2/5's. It's ridiculous at the number of mega-noobs just joining and submitting maps that are made up of a room into the completed map vaults! Not only is VOX leaving, but so is Pepper.
This site is like a city. It's a pretty good small town, but people notice the beauty of the land around it, and many people come to the town. They find some minerals in the ground that would make everyone rich. More people hear about this and come to the town. Soon, there are big factories everywhere, polluting the land. The old town is ruins, because everyone now lives in apartment complexes near the factories. Soon, there are commercial bussinesses everywhere. People from all around are flocking to the city. The city grows massive, but the quality of the land goes away.
And that's the story of TWHL...
Here's some comparisons:
Land: The maps in the map vault
People: Members of the site
Apartment Complexes: Forums
Factories: Tools used to create maps
Commercial Bussinesses: Members telling others about their maps in the forums.
Old Town: Old parts of the map vault
"As the town grew into a city, the land quality got worse and worse" is the same as "As TWHL gets bigger, the maps get worse"
