I went through and tried to identify authors for the missing ones
Thanks, I've added them to the root post, many with an asterisk. I don't think definite confirmation can be made unless Submerge or WastedYouth show up but neither have been active in 5yr+ and their known email addresses no longer work.

One thing to keep in mind is many maps turned into collaborations whether the original author knew about it or not. Like I said in the DW thread, I think the project turned into a free-for-all with mapper contributions, especially v0.98a-onward. It was like the maps were credited to the ST forum collective whole.

AgentSpork told me they didn't make that map, saying it "intentionally mimic[ed] the style of Simplicity", thinking it was Carnevil making this tribute level. I haven't yet heard back from Carnevil on whether he remembers creating it.

Same. The best explanation I'd have is it being like the Toke tribute WAD
situation where a base Toke layout was taken by another mapper that ran with it. Ænima, what makes you think Toke was involved in that level? The map title?
Tango wrote:D2ST3: pretty sure this is Carnevil; iirc this map was part of Skulltag even before its last big content update that added most of these other maps
I'd have to look at the old releases and betas. I know this map originally appeared in map slot D2ST1, at least according to the changelog.
Tango wrote:D2ST10: does this map even exist? I can't find it
Keeping you on your toes. Looks like this map was never made although its title was still in the WAD metadata.

I was referencing author articles on the DoomWiki. I've changed the root post to stick with Doom community nicknames.
