    Map Submission Format
    Required: Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    Required: TF2Maps.net file ID number, OR url to offsite download.
    __BZ2 compressed files are greatly appreciated to save time for the host.
    __May NOT be a hosting site like mega-upload (wait times, codes, excessive ads, etc).
    First time submissions, Required: TF2Maps.net discussion thread number.
    __My scheduling system uses this number, I need it, not the post number. (picture)
    If you need a specific time slot: Available time & your time zone.
    __Only use if you aren't available for the whole testing period and wish to attend your map.
    Would you like the SourceTV demo of the test?
    __These are automatically recorded at all times.
    If your submission is a single stage out of a multi-stage map, please mention this. (orphaned stage)
    If you are a donator with upload abilities, please say if you have already uploaded the map.

    Testing options
    • A time extension may be requested for mature non-arena maps in need of fine tuning (this includes orphaned stages).

    You can keep the same TF2Maps.net file number by clicking edit on your file's page and then simply putting a new file in the upload box. This makes it easier for you (don't have to update all your links!), easier for me, and less clutter on the site. (picture)

    Rules
    The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, proper spawns, not fullbright, etc.
    __The purpose of this testing is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs.
    Filename MUST be versioned. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, NOT ctf_example.bsp)
    __Do not rename a bsp after compile. The vmf must be renamed before compile.
    Filename must be all lowercase. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, NOT CTF_Example_A1.bsp)
    __Our Linux servers don't work with uppercase names.
    Map must be IN DEVELOPMENT, finished maps do not require testing.
    Map may NOT use a point_servercommand to alter any variables.
    Map must be designed for normal play.
    __This means no melee, class restricted, too small for 24 players, or otherwise gimmicky maps.

    • You may NOT reserve a submission without a download.
    • Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission.
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.


    Information
    • First come first serve, until the 3 hour period is filled.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    • Submissions will be limited to 3 hours of testing.
    Last map can exceed the limit so long as most of the testing happens within the 3 hour period(30 minute test starting at 7:40 EST is allowed, 30 minute test starting at 7:50 EST isn't)
    Server with most author votes/majority of time slots gets used.

    Since nobody bothers to check whether the copy-pasted rules have changed i'll leave it in this second post.

    The event has been moved to 8PM in order that i (and others in a similar position) can eat dinner; this shouldn't be a problem since last Sunday's 8pm Game Day was a success (and even had maps added to the end). Hopefully it wasn't a one off.

    Also, i'm moving to alternate the servers rather than voting.

    Sorry for the delay of posting this event, the site has been down :(

    Bumbing this because another event made this thread quite unnoticed! ;)

    Well, considering friday was only half-full, and there's a non-tf2m event running almost at the same time, it's not that surprising that there isn't much demand for a gameday today.

    Usually the event gets 2-3 entries by the end of Saturday afternoon, but since the site went down literally as i was posting it I wasn't able to make the thread until early this morning; meaning nobody was able to enter submissions when they usually see the thread go up.

    Mike, your Drop Box link is broken (403's). Please sort it if you want to have your map tested. Can't play your map without the bsp.

    I'll throw axle on since i just released a new version this morning.

    This is fine and all but you didn't specify which one will be used today :p
    (or if you did, it's not obvious enough)

    US. Opposite of last weeks and the ones Okrag has run.

    It gets announced in the event announcement.

    Also, if nobody turns up, blame X-Factor.
