    I want to share this news that popped up. Apparently Emporium Member Frying Dutchman has been in contact with Valve regarding community content creators. I thought I'd share it with you.

    This is something that affects all of us, and so I hope that you take this news in consideration.

    If it's an April Fool's joke, it's not outrageous enough to be funny.

    While I know it's April 1st, understand that I have no sense of humor and that I would not joke about something this important.

    If this is an April Fools joke, good one.
    If this isn't a joke, this is sad.

    I think it's sad either way. It sounds too typical of Valve to be a joke and if it's not it kinda sucks for mappers because we still don't have a fucking workshop.

    "Valve? Communicating with a member of the community? This is obviously an April Fools joke."

    Heh.

    That is unfortunedly very true, they don't have released any community maps in over a year.
    :(

    I never said I was happy to do it.

    The modelingish equivalent to TF2Maps... ish.

    I don't get it. What big changes? Did they already take place?
    What did he reform and what is the new robust workshop thread?
    Since when is the tf2 workshop clean and rearranged?

    Why would Valve discourage us modders, and how will they encourage contributing to the workshop when there ISN'T ONE?

    I'm not sure how we're meant to be able to tell the difference between "valve now" and "valve actively ignoring us".
