That doesn't even make sense. Maybe when people find out who Tau really is (s)he'll be more willing to co-operate in that sense.
Tau IMO in comparison with Minimoose is a little bit lacking qualities as an admin. I posted a thread in the website forum suggesting on how to improve the map DLDB there. I wanted it so that when people browse the map listings, they can see the author's name. But she was like no, most people put the author's name in the map description and that it makes things much simpler. Then I refuted her reasonings, but she kept using the same arguments for her own stance and offered an even more complicated alternative. It's not that I disagree with her decisions or anything, it's just that she doesn't really explain her reasonings as well.

Back to actual policy, I would oppose direct cooperation simply because they offer OSMAP as a download, which I continue to strongly disapprove of.
For now, I see the best policy as trying to keep links to maplantis to a minimum, and otherwise maintain a neutral bearing.
That's the kind of attitude I want neither us nor Maplantis to have.

Maplantis is just another version of SEN. Cooperation with them doesn't make sense.
Neither does having a cold or unfriendly attitude upon them.
I don't get why we are even making such a big deal about this. Who the freak cares if they support unprotection or not. Our websites don't focus entirely upon that issue. We focus on map making; not just map making, but we're both trying to expand into the melee world. Ok we don't necessarily have to have direct cooperation with them, these are the prime ideals that run behind both of our websites; why must we treat each other as if we're enemies. The way most of you describe "neutrality" isn't neutrality, but more like a stone-cold relationship: you guys fall more into the category of hating them rather than liking them. Even Tau herself doesn't want any sort of site war or rivalry going on between us two. But I can understand how she gets frustrated when people constantly PM her about how OSMAP is evil and bad.
