    So I ask ID a couple of days, probably a week or so, I don't exactly remember but the point is there was plenty of time left before the submission deadline, to find some competitive players to judge.

    The contest ends, he whacks up a prelim thread without even talking to anyone about it, at this point I'd asked for a judges subforum and all the judges to be added to it so we could discuss how to conduct prelims.

    The prelims thread closes since it's just plain stupid.

    Ages passes.

    Just on saturday I finally get a PM from ID with the names of the competative judges, the judges corner is up by this time, just and the rest of the judges are casting votes.

    The last of the judges votes for prelims came in yesterday, except for the judges I had ID pick, he tells me they've all played the maps so I PM them today asking them if they could hurry their prelim votes up a bit

    I get a reply telling me that on sunday ID asked them to vote and then they started looking at the maps.

    So their votes wont be in for prelims until at least Wednesday or Thursday, especially as one of them is on holiday.


    I am sorry to pick on ID like this, he is an all-right guy. But just can't do anything right.

    So I'm done. I will keep mapping, most likely for TF2. But helping to run this community is too stressful for me.

    oh well, if you say so.
    I'm expecting you to release some more great maps then, what with all the free time you should have now! :)

    Makes perfect sense.

    It's also the reason why I don't have any aspirations to become site staff :p

    At least you'll still be here.

    Koth stark should be hitting beta early june. Furnace is rc, cp stark will probably see a new version early-mid june.

    Then I'll have time to think about new maps. I might do something small, maybe prophunt even.

    Until then... exams!

    And another titan of the Team Fortress 2 mapping community falls.

    Youme, you are a god among men in the TF2 community. Not just the mapping part, but in all parts. A good percentage of players actually knew of your name.

    However, stress can get to anyone, and with this, I wish you'd keep mapping, if only but for yourself. Best of luck to you in any future (or current) endeavors you take.

    :(

    Please stick around in the chat room, you know so much about mapping and you've been so helpful to me all the time you've been around. I know I'm a pain but it's great how you put up with us despite that. :)

    All the staff members sound like hiphoppers. Yo yo Dr Pepper, Immortal-D, DJive, Nineaxis.

    You're the odd man out.
