I'll play a few of yours and BionicCryonic's maps and see what I think.
Because most of this is fairly subjective, even if i don't think you guys are good mappers for beginners, that doesn't mean that everyone will. I'll leave a few comments on a couple of both of your maps that will hopefully help you figure out how to make better maps.
Also, Conen__TG_, that means that I liked your maps back then
Haven't played a map by you in a while I don't think... I assume you're even better than you were then.
