It's that time again! Alas, these posts still don't involve pie As I'm sure the more astute of you have noticed, our mighty webmasters have installed a handy Contest Timer at the top of the page. But don't let the number of days showing make you complacent. In actuality, we have 2.5 months left, give or take. With that in mind, I'm giving another shameless reminder that all users can create their own events; Events Forum Just make sure you allow enough time for moderator approval You can ask the donors and/or mods to upload maps for you, but they have absolutely no obligation. Or just show a little support and get VIP Status Please bug drpepper to change the 1-month limit He's just being lazy, lol. On a less serious note, we appear to have been over-run with hats. Second order of business. As promised, I have been keeping tabs on the contest, and thinking about having an extension. Before I do that however, I would like everyone to remember a few things. For all of the fun, this contest is very much a commitment, and requires considerable effort on your part hmy: If you have just been putting it off, or you open Hammer with no serious determination, then having an extension won't do you any good. Also take into account that PLR and assault-CTF are pretty much new to everyone. There is a good discussion regarding pros/cons of the latter here; http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=7611 The design philosophy for both modes is quite different from the norm, and getting your head around them takes time. Just keep all this in mind when I finally do make an extension poll (probly mid-July). Btw, I'm trying to make these posts bullet-point announcements for Steam, for those who are too lazy to read. How am I doing?
