Did anyone submit a map to this site or give them permission?

    I was clicking each of our sponsors on the frontpage, and happened across this; http://teamfortresshq.multiplayernetwork.net/fall/cat/tf2maps/ Maps like Castle, Mach, OverFlow, Snofort, Impact, and a bunch of others. They were submitted under the user name Yourcatch22. Do we have an agreement w/ this site and I missed it? Or just a massive theft. If the latter, admin peeps please contact me so we can sort this out.

    I think it's reasonably clear once you click on one of the maps that "submitter" does not equal "author", since it seems to display the contents of any readme file found in the archive.

    On the other hand, someone just scanning the list without actually downloading maps could easily come to the wrong conclusion.

    Yup, submitter and author are definitley not the same. I know I didn't submit 2bridges, and yet... there it is!

    I was kind of happy to see my map there. I wouldn't have if they had omitted my author notes, but it's all there. So they're pretty much just spreading my map around. And I like that.
