    Maybe the tuorial section could become almost wiki-like?

    Frozen, I think that survey's broken, I don't see a question for when the contest should start. Maybe you couldn't think of answers for that question, so I'll supply some: "Now" "This instant" and "Right flippin now" are all good ones. Just to let you know ;)

    Or you could just take the answer that I have been giving you for the past week.


    "Soon"

    I'm quite surprised at how much I wrote in the comment boxes after i'd finished.

    Also i'd like to say I think the news reel under the latest maps is pointless. The large majority of the time it's filled with tf2.com blog posts which if the visitor is a fans of TF2 I doubt our front page is the first place they're going to hear it, or at least it could be shrunk down alot to a small feed of the the titles of tf2.com lastest blog posts and the date they were posted separate from news about the site, which tbh I think the scrolling image reel above the lastest maps bit is much better use for.

    Oh and the popular tags cloud is stupid too, nothing interesting to come from that ever other than the mystery of why the word 'M.Bison' has been so popular

    I didn't expect the contest until at least after the BATT voting process. No reason to steal Little's thunder. It's been a bumpy ride, that contest.

    Also, yea. Since the tag function doesn't seem to be used by anyone other than the tut posts, people have been trolling the tags in every thread they make.

    Tbh, I was experimenting with how many tags are needed for something to register on the tag cloud...


    ... that is why "alfalfa" is up there...

    It's nice to see the site owners are finding out what their users want. I rarely ever see that on any website (yes, Mark Zuckerburg, I'm looking at you).

    Anyway, done.

    You know, my only big gripe with the site is the lack of Involvement with Valve. But, that is hardly TF2Maps' fault, more Valve's. I just wish they'd rear their ugly heads every once in a while. They seem so detached sometimes.

    Other than that, yeah, the tutorial section is a bit outdated. An overhaul would be nice.

    Yeah youtube or some other type of video would be awesome as I bet not many people want to scroll though thousands of paragraphs all the time aswell as it makes making the Tut ore reasonable and easier.
