    Yes, I know we had talk of a twitter/Facebook group. But I want to ask the question: what of a youtube channel?

    A couple people could run it (staff maybe? Someone who is good with youtube?) and what it could be is a channel where we can feature videos of our mappers, either of flythroughs of completed maps, development timelapses (like Coldfronts)... and maybe even a few sped up speed mapping recordings?

    Just a thought I had... something to help get the community contributes out to the TF2 community a bit more.

    EDIT: it appears we have one... with 143 subscribers... can we start using it again?


    EDIT:EDIT: I have taken control of the YT channel -evil face- If you have a video of a map that you want to be added, I'm making playlists of "Flythroughs" and "Timelapses," and will add the video to the appropriate playlist.

    Whoever has the password to that (nineaxis probably), just make a playlist called "TF2M Maps" or some shit like that and add videos from our members to it.

    I was thinking about seeing if we could get a custom one that is TF2y... Like my channel just uses Lumberyard concept art, but if we could find something nicer that'd be cool.

    I will, I just updated the YT channel. I don't have a background yet, so if someone wants to offer suggestions, that would be marvelous.

    Penguin, I will do that right now.

    I currently have Koth_dropdown fly through set as the featured video, I also posted a bulletin annouceing gerbil as a finalist.

    Not 3, but I like No.1... it would work well, its main point is offcenter, so that would work.

    EDIT: also, they need to tall... the channel page is pretty tall.

    Those are good, but not really anything at all to do with mapping.

    The first is neat.

    Could always just use the grid. Tiles, and it's kinda clever.

    Oooh, I really really like the blue print backround.

    Now though, do we want to feature maps in the background, because then it would only be far for other maps if these too were cycled through... and to switch 'em we'd need a new image like every/every other month.


    Uhh what?

    Exactly that, rotating the maps every so often.
