There is, actually! This is what is sent to anyone who joins:
Welcome to TF2Maps! We're glad you decided to join us, and we hope you stick around and become a valued member of our community. Make sure you pop on over to the Introductions forum
and let everyone know a bit about yourself.
If you're just getting started with mapping for TF2, head on over and watch Crash's How to make TF2 Maps
video series. While you're learning, or even if you're a seasoned master Egan's Mapping resource links
provide an invaluable plethora of knowledge.
If you're stuck with a mapping problem, post up a thread in the Mapping Questions forum
. If you're having problems compiling your map, copy and paste it into the Interlopers compile log error checker, a super useful tool that automatically scans your compile log on errors which saves you a ton of time since it instantly gives you any errors that might be present in your compile log. If the error checker didn't give any errors yet you still encounter problems, or if you're still unsure about something in your compile log,
be sure to include a copy of your compile log surrounded in [code]...[/code] tags.
When your first map is done, head over to the Downloads Section
and hit the "Add Download" button at the top right to upload it to our site and share it with the community! We run regular "impromptu events" from our Steam group chat, or you can submit your map to one of our gamedays.
If you have any other questions feel free to reply to this message and we'll do our best to help.
