The Review-Hub ranking process introduces a voting system which determines if you are allowed to drop your map from the ranking process.
You may not drop maps that have not recieved an (denied) vote.
Any map that has been nominated may not be dropped, unless it is discovered that significant changes which require a remap were found that would have resulted in an (denied) vote.
Your rejected maps record is a list of maps you have recently decided to drop after receiving (denied) votes in Review-hub. If you reach 3 denied maps, an offence will be applied. Your amount of denied maps will lower through the following actions:
This system aims to incentivise mappers to submit quality maps to Review-hub, and to avoid situations where mappers continuously submit sub-par maps to Review-hub.
An offence will be applied if your rejected map list reaches a total of 3 maps. This list will gradually decrease.
When an offence is applied, you will get banned from ranking maps for the duration listed below. Your next offence level will gradually move down as time goes on.
First offence: 1 month + acknowledgement
Second offence: 3 months + appeal
Third offence: 6 months + appeal
Subsequent offences: 1 year + appeal
You will move back one standing after the amount of time of the next tier has passed.
For example, 3 months after the 1st offence ban you will return to 0 offences again.
6 months after a second offence you will move back to a standing of 1 offence, and 3 months after that you will return to 0 offences again.
You must never delete/reupload a ranked map because doing so will make the ranked map unavailable to players.
If you break this rule diciplainary action will be taken and you will be banned from ranking maps in the future.
The length of the appeal wait time will depend on previous offense history.
