    Could it be possible to edit the category section of Maps forum to something like this: http://koti.mbnet.fi/tmalmi/suggestion.jpg.
    This because I am often trying to find 5cp push/3-CP A/D maps from there, and can't find those that easy, unless I check pics or go play it myself as the categorysection doesnt clarify it instantly
    This could save some time of the searcher

    Added the image to attachments.

    Feel free to comment.

    Im totally for it, only that a dropdown menu would be better, because it doenst need so much space. And the WIP with an extra checkbox.

    and A/D CTF is missing

    i´m all for the change, only problem i see is that authors would need to correct their section their maps are in, but this shouldn´t outweight the usefulness of more precise subdirectories

    +1 for that idea

    A "contest entry" checkbox would be nice too

    Notice how you can select multiple :)O) options. Attack and Defend and CTF checked = A/D CTF.

    Youme is right, but it would still be nice if we had a PLR and KOTH setting (A Contest Entry checkbox wouldn't be bad, either)

    yeah, I think an addition of:
    King of the Hill
    5CP Push
    Multistage
    Payload Race

    would minimize confusion alot

    Agreed. PLR, KOTH, and something to distinguish the three CP modes.

    I like my list :p

    I mean if arena has its own notification then one needs to be there for koth.

    An option for multistage should be there so we can differentiate between the 2 primary modes of attack and defend. Like a dustbowl style map would have cp, attack and defend, and multistage checked. The ctf version would just replace cp with ctf. And to have something of the gravelpit style you just remove the multistage part.

    I am undecided if the 5cp notification is needed, I mean, is there any other type of standard cp map that is not covered by the other options? Is there a way to search maps using this criteria, if there is then you might consider adding this, unless you can search by excluding the other criteria.

    Also undecided if plr is needed, I think the most efficient thing would be to have something that can be used to refer to both 5cp and plr, then you could decide which by what else is checked. But for the life of me, I can't think of any term that could be effectively used to describe both. <_<

    And I don't think contest is necessary, I see no real reason why contest maps need to separate themselves from other maps from the start.
