    OK, lets give this thing a go (slightly modified Okrag's event page format).

    Event will begin at:
    GMT: 19:00 PM

    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.

    Da_Man, FYI you gave me the wrong thread number. Also, what's with your download link? TF2maps is a free map file host, feel free to use it as it's also easier for us.

    We have room for 1 more 15/20 minute slot. For all the fuss about having an extra gameday and to have it on a Sunday there sure isn't a lot of fighting for slots.

    Since there was only 1 vote, for the EU, we'll go with that; since i'm also biased towards EU. You all had your chance to say otherwise.

    Nobody reads the rules these days... when making your submission tell me your prefered server.

    If you don't say, i wont know and other authors wont know what to expect.

    Grarz, your timezone website confuses me, it says that this gameday begins midnight, and it was yesterday.

    Since Levee is apparently Broken, and i dont have time to fix it, can i retract my submission? sorry for messing up, but it might well be broken to the extent of the payload not moving.

    Don't be a smart arse :/

    EDIT: Sorry wankhouse, i assumed Okrag linked the home page rather than the specific event time: here.

    Edit2: I've thrown axle on the end to fill it up a little.
