OK, but you have to be a constructive
Samuel L, giving some kind of helpful response to every MFG feedback request, even if you don't particularly like the genre of map.

That's a good question. For now, preferably within a week, definitely within a month. If there's a problem with people not giving feedback in a reasonable period of time then we can go ahead and set a time limit.

You can give any kind of feedback you want. Whatever feedback you think will be helpful. Whatever feedback style works for you. Whatever feedback you can give quickly without spending too much time on it.
Of course, people making requests can also ask for specific kinds of feedback (e.g. "Please tell me if the starting scenario seems balanced" or "Please tell me what you think of the graphics" or "Please give me a few ratings on a scale of 1-5") as long as they're not too demanding (e.g. "Please answer this list of 25 questions I have"

I know what you mean... Ideally, there wouldn't be any group. But with a ten-member group, for example, there are nine other people who have committed
to responding to your request, which means you should get nine decent responses
, which has never happened without a group as far as I know. So I think that's the value in forming a group: anybody who wants a good range of quality feedback can sign on at any time.
Looking at the forum today, I'm glad to see that we haven't prevented people outside the group from asking for feedback, and we haven't prevented people from responding to those requests. That's a good sign, I think.

Yes! The civility and thoughtfulness of the Map LAB community is the main reason why I think this group might just work.
