It's a real stretch and I'm not really sure how to gain more level on my status but I know that I'm not helpless at mapping. I was wondering about how open the community is about collaborations, and I'm not talking about contest entries, just mapping in general. I enjoy mapping but find it's a bit of a burden for one person alone, and I know I really haven't got all my eggs in this basket so, who else just wants to jump head deep into a collaboration project. I feel like collaborations are a bit taboo in the community as we tend to leave it upto the professionals but I'm sure there's us less experienced here that could get along just aswell. I actuelly think collaboartions should try and be a lot more encouraged by the TF2maps.net community in my opinion.

I'm happy for this thread to be open to discussion, not just people saying yes or...mostly likely a lot of 'No.'
