    Most of the time when maps begin to get nominated nearing the end or beginning of a map, multiple players begin to nominate a map of their choosing, and considering there are only 5 options max during the map vote, many of people's nominations aren't in the pool.

    I think it'd be pretty useful to allow a map to be nominated more than once so that during the map vote, the maps with the most nominations are put into the pool, rather than having some nominations pushing others out of the pool.

    This would also allow players to actively weed out maps we don't want in the rotation to possibly get them removed in the future from lack of playtime and popularity.

    The menu can't fit anymore, the buttons don't go beyond F5. And making people vote between >5 different choices is going to result in stalemates every time. Many times the vote fails with 5 choices already.

    Also if you allow the map to be nominated again then you can end up playing the same map over and over again, which I believe many of the people here complained about in another thread.

    You misunderstand.

    If more than 5 are nominated, random ones will be left out, right?

    Ish wants multiple players to be able to nominate the same map during the same round.

    A map with multiple nominations in one round gets priority to stay over one that does not or has less.

    My suggestion wasn't to increase the menu pool. It was to add a voting system to the nominated maps so that maps that have more votes take precedent over nominations that have a singular vote. The idea is that the menu would remain at 5 options but maps with more nominations would be on the menu.

    Also, regarding your statement about maps being constantly revoted and played, most of the time when regulars are on, they are competent enough to nominate maps that haven't already been played multiple times within the span of a couple of hours. If anything, this would help the issue of overplaying maps and would allow the player base a chance to actually control what maps are played, and what isn't getting played.

    A better solution would be “first come first serve”, after 5 nominations the server refuses to accept any more.

    Why was this declined, in spite of the score being +6/-0?
