We chose to sticky the thread here because it was more consistent with previous threads than for any other reason. Map of the Month threads were posted in the Showcase and keeping every monthly thread in the same forum is preferable to changing around the location. It definitely wouldn't hurt to have MotQ in ROM Hacking, but moving it because Rating/ Review is there isn't as appealing as keeping a nice consistency.

In previous mapping competitions (MotM, Get Togethers etc) the majority of maps entered were made specifically for the contest rather than entering maps from already established games. An announcement wouldn't really be necessary considering the closeness of the forums and how hacking members aren't known for exclusively belonging to specific sub-forums within Emulation.

Thanks for your suggestions Darth and Cyclone :)
