I find that the actual difference between Minecraft World Map and Planet Minecraft is how our primary traffic uses this site. Since this site is almost entirely run by Skeight, we are often unable to supply the demands of the constantly evolving community. Due to this, new features are not added in a timely matter, administration of maps can be minimal, and people often have confusion with the functionally of our site. When rendering issues arise, we take the approach of having the user fix the issue themselves rather than us adding exceptions to avoid the issue as a whole, no matter how common. This causes a lack of excitement, as our site always retains the same feel that our active members have grown to love, but new users may not. Currently, I am the only active forum moderator, meaning that I deal with 99% of all user-submitted problems and reports, which can be problematic when I am not around.

Don't get me wrong, this site sees plenty of traffic. Our services have rendered, "22 maps in the past 24 hours 202 maps in the past 7 days 996 maps in the past 30 days 9675 maps in the past year", which is enough to allow our site to stay active, but not become overloaded with too many requests. We also provide plenty of popular maps, and we often get boosts of traffic for when YouTubers such as EthosLab and CaptainSparklez use our services.

Additionally, each of the icons on the top of your screen represents a logged in and active user on our site, which does not include the traffic from guests simply visiting the site. We receive plenty of traffic on our service; though we could receive more, I find that our current traffic is sufficient enough to keep our services steadily, effectively, and efficiently running, avoid long queues and rendering times.

Ah that explains a lot, though I have to say I primarily hit up map sites to try and get some feedback/scope for design tricks I might steal which seems like it would scale almost proportionally with traffic. (what are your "maintenance and programing fiddly-bits" to me? You IT peoples job is to be invisible magic gnomes who magic away all problems instantly regardless of whatever constraints you operate under. *cracks whip* bring me traffic gnomes!)

sorry if I got a bit weird there at the end (long day and too much redbull)
