    Hmm I am surprised that SimianCage.net isn't on here!
    It's a great community from the UK and they had a custommaps server for ages!
    Currently they added a second server so more room for testing! :D
    Anyway this is their mapping forum: http://www.simiancage.net/forumdisplay.php?79-Mapping
    The mapping forum is only accessible for registered members tough so your secret mapping projects are safe!

    Well, i'm going to try my favorite clan, i always play in the servers and i know the peeps there.
    AEROLITE GAMING! (main tf2 place, but they'll be happy if you posted acutal maps in suggestions and feedback, i think.)
    It'll be hard to try and get them to do it, because quickplay is kind of the lifeline of our servers, and payload server will occasionaly be empty for long periods of time.
    Has 3 servers: all-2fort, all-turbine and payload-vote (wich is pretty much frontier or badwater when i'm on, somehow people are very easily manipulated by "Vote 5 and get cookies!").

    I think it'd be a good idea to start a fresh and remake this thread so here's a few to start and once we have a few i'll update to OP or just trash this and make a new one. If you are not aware what is the point of this thread is for people to know of communities with filled servers who may be interested in trying out your more finished/pub player ready maps or if you're super lucky test them like we do without our cool feedback plugin.

    theharribokid,

    As one of the founders/owners of Critfest.com, I wanted to thank you for the mention of our community! Although the holidays have put us a bit behind, we generally averaged a "Map Playtest" event for our community on a monthly basis.

    We know we aren't a community for everyone as we're not a pure vanilla type of community. We focus on the "fun factor" of TF2 and have quite a few different server types (vanilla, 35% crits, 100% crit low-grav, 100% crit arena, and a sniper server -- we do have a freak fortress and dodgeball server, but they are currently down for rebuilding) which could appeal to many different map types.

    We will generally password protect our server and have our regulars jump in and have a formal map playtest. Our ultimate goal is to determine whether or not a map is fun (very important) as well as whether or not they are ready for the server map cycle on a permanent basis. We will also alpha test and beta test maps as well to ensure what maps we want to keep our eyes on for their RC or Final release status. One of my admins generally takes notes, we check for glitches/bugs, we look for class and map balance, and we get all the players' feedback and will provide it upon request.

    We take our playtesting seriously, so for any mappers who want to have your maps tested by our community, please feel free to contact me (email below) or on steam and we'll be more than happy to assist! Depending on the interest level, we've considered putting up a server specifically for alpha, beta and RC map playtesting and have a feedback section in our forums for our community to provide feedback on it; and then in turn I would post our comments/suggestions over here at tf2maps.net for the mappers information to assist them in making the changes they (and the general public) would like to see.

    Again, thanks theharribokid! :)

    Regards,
    SmackDaddy (at) critfest (dot) com

    Don't forget BT

    Don't forget BlankTerminal.net.

    My custom maps server is in the works, but as soon as it is up, there will be a huge variety of maps other servers don't support. Our stock maps server is up currently though. IP: 74.91.124.183:27015

    According to your post here you're only accepting custom map submissions from Gamebanana. Are you going to be taking them from here as well?
