This map is good in E2 gameplay. Unfortunately, not an id map. The homages ruined it. Why did you say it is an accepted homages Xaser? Homages are not supposed to be included even if they were good or not, we are mapping from our own creativity and faking that we haven't played the originals at the first place. Sorry for being mean, but this map fails to be an id map. I go for NAY!

It's like submitting the same map for more than one project, good or not, you either want it to be included in the megawad, or not. I'd say it still goes against some elemental rules of working on a megawad project.

That shouldn't be a factor at all. This map was submitted to DTWID, thus it should be considered for DTWID. I do think Daimon jumped the gun a bit on releasing it separately, since this is one of the better maps, but it's better to judge it on its own merits.

I'm really against including maps that have been released and reviewed in /newstuff

This is perhaps the only time I find mega-homages acceptable. In fact, it works great as a secret map due to this -- a nice, E2-y Petersen tribute that does its job well. I approve.
