First entry for first round. Should meet both additional prize requirements.
Note: this was made in under 4 hours because I misread the due date. Still submitting it.

There's now going to be 2 winning raffle tickets per month, each worth $25. And yes, anyone that has more than 1 ticket does have the chance at having both drawn!

Theres a little bit of ambiguity in the creation of content, if I make a custom map using stock tags basically 70% of the map isn't mine since I used already created tags (even if they are stock)

 

What should I do in that case?

Sorry, I tried to word it to prevent that confusion.. it refers only to custom content that is not yours.
