I'm not sure about others, but if I'm going to download a mpa it'd need more than a massive lump of metal on the surface. I mean, if the rest of the map is impossible to set up in, and the iron is hidden in a corner behind the jungle, and your townies spawn on the wrong side of the river to begin with... you get where I'm going with this.
IMHO, it's better to have a good building map than a map with surface iron. If you manage to generate a map with a nice flat area with water at on side, jungle relatively close by (about a screen away from the centre of the plain), with metals and coal available close together for a 'mining' area, a nice patch of think grass for a park, and preferable all surroundded by hills and mountians at the map edges... well, THAT would be a map to upload
I'm not saying that you shouldn't upload the maps you're talking about, just that they probably won't be as popular as other maps unless they have some stand-out feature.
