    Unreal. I can list 100 maps on FPSbanana that have custom content from other users that dont list them as authors. They are thanked in the readme. Its the way its always done. What the hell are FPSbanana playing at here. I appealed the decision to the guy that has withheld the map so lets see how it goes.

    Easy way to solve the problem: give credit where it is due. Why wouldn't you want to show appreciation to the folks who made part of your map possible?

    They are in the readme. Like the way every one does it and the way its done. As I said there are 100's, probably 1000's of maps on FPSbanana with other users content that dont list them as authors. Why is my map so special that it needs to be withheld.

    You're talking about FPSB here.

    Your expectations were obviously a little innocent.

    This is rediculous, I've got custom content from lots of different people in hoodoo (all credited in the readme) and its not been withheld for improper credits....
    having to put the names of the texture makers as authors is stupid, on that ground you should be saying your map was made by valve since they made all the stock textures, entities, editor, etc etc...

    You can contact the moderators and they can sort stuff like this out, its best to get in touch with a mod on FPSB and befriend them as early as possible so they can help out with lack of common sense issues like this.

    Reminds me of YouTube actually.. They delete individual videos's because they're by somebody else yet they all seem to lack the ability to look to the left of the video and see over 50 other video's of entire episodes which is even worse.

    I too have problems with FPSBanana; i sometimes wonder why i even signed up for it in the first place to be honest.

    Oops, missed the part where you said they were in the readme. That's crazy dude. Sounds like some mod got trigger happy.

    Why don't you host your map on a nice site like TF2Maps.net? ;)

    I think TF2maps.net needs a little more awareness out there about our downloads section for TF2 custom content.

    It'd certainly increase traffic..

    that's ridiculous, just because he made the water texture (it's ctf_malice right?) he's not an author of the map -.-

    I've just found out that I've been put as an author of cp_docks (made by darker side of your shadow) for the same reason... This is completely rediculous I had next to no part in the creation of his map (he used my dev textures) and yet i've been listed as an author, this is even more incorrect than not listing me at all...
