    Hi guys, it's been a while.

    Well as some of you may or may not know, I'm head Admin over at TF2 Wiki and I was thinking that maybe we could synergise.

    I was thinking a TF2Maps.net article on the Wiki wouldn't go amiss and we could announce your upcoming contest, or anything of interest from you on the Main Page.

    Let me know what you think.
    Thanks.

    If we are synergising than it would be most useful if there was a database of custom maps by gamemode, version, etc.

    I don't know how it's updated if it's user contributed or what but...

    I would be up for it! Just make it so the custom maps pages redirects people to here. :p

    Yeah, we're aware the Custom maps page needs work.
    It's just been rotting there.
    I was thinking about adding an article about the current contest, and perhaps add it to the Main Page.

    Sounds like a great idea.

    You could link to us, and we could link back to you, etc

    *looks on tf2wiki custom page*
    Anybody notice the maps on there? First map: "cp_2fortified. A map based on the layout of the original 2fort."

    I'd be up for editing the wiki a bit to clean it up, and a map database for this place would be insanely convenient.

    We don't add the maps. If you want to remove it, go ahead, but don't damn the entire site because one single person added their map.

    My professional, totally unbiased admin opinion; this idea is awesome-sauce :D I'll start working with DP on a TF2M history thing. Then we can figure out some mutual links and getting announcements for our major events on the Wiki front page.

    My opinion doesn't really matter, but it sounds like a great idea to me.
