Actually the mappers did agree that MFM will retain their last copy of their mp sent for compilation. Since we compile each week, it means it is a very current copy.
A true mapper thinks differently from others. He/she is not daunted by the huge task of mapping or remapping. In fact, he may not be happy if he takes over an almost complete map because he won't have the chance to do much work. That's why we started with blank maps.
If you had attended the mega GG, you would have seen how happy and enthusiastic robo, gerkeng, pauchai and mg were with their mapping and tracking. And they were very proud they progressed so much within a short period. If we had reverse-engineered Jerome's Johor-R, I doubt they would feel too proud about it.
If I follow the argument at MSM, MFM would have instant
detailed Sabah and Sarawak map with additional icons and polygons. We would have left MSM trailing far behind. But that will leave no mapping opportunity for tympg, edchuang, alyem, pgkent and johntan. I am highlighting the thoughts of a genuine mapper versus those who merely claim to be a mapper.
Many of you guys failed to identify the importance of the people versus the maps. You focus only on the map you can use, not the hardworking guys behind it. Therefore you don't really give a damn about the injustice of their hard work being blatantly copied as long as the public get free maps.
At MFM, it is the people and their enjoyment of the mapping process that matters the most. This is our secret formula
