Some competitors allow (essentially) unlimited free use when maps are public, and only require a subscription for private maps. Is that something you consider to allow? (On my testing account, I cannot create public maps when I already have 3 private ones.)
Hi! Yes, we are considering how to encourage public maps e.g. by making them not count against your map limit.
As a quick fix, I have increased you map limit by one, so you can start your public map right away.
