    Yep.

    We will have to revert back to waiting 30 minutes to download our sweet custom maps.

    Kidding. Our new system will only need you to upload to the game servers themselves. Immediately, the map will be copied, compressed to .bz2 format, and placed in our redirect pool on the fly.

    This means less uploading and more gaming.

    Thanks.

    D: But I didn't mind having to do the .bz2! D:

    I would have preferred if it did this THE OTHER WAY AROUND, but I'm ok with it :p. Less uploading for meeee.

    Yes, but it's not something we made ourselves.

    This'll be nice, but I agree with potato, it'd be nicer to upload the smaller file and have it automatically decompress onto both the US and EU servers.

    Again, it's not something we made, nor is it something we can change.

    Don't know if it's been said, but I think it would be better if we could upload the bz2 instead, less upload time for us!

    Why are you so interested in it anyway? You aren't around much and don't seem to be making any maps that would need uploading...

    I'm planning it and I went to 500 posts for that feature so I don't want to loose it.

    the reason we decided to keep the uploading feature to donator only is due to the abuse that happened a year ago.

    regulars where uploading pirated stuff to our redirect. having this donator only keeps this service to people who have something to lose and in turn they will think twice about abusing the service.
