    Just a quick note on updating jam stuff: any updates you make right now will get caught in the moderation queue. I'm letting through updates that fix gamebreaking issues like packing (or that one person who uploaded the wrong file, you know who you are) but not big changes and updates. Those will all go through after the showcase post on the weekend - so people get to see stuff as it was in the jam. You can of course get updated maps tested - if you're not familiar with how to do that, check the link in my signature.

    No, the counter in the download section counts a part of the old entries!

    I don't know if this has been answered, and if so I'm sorry, but is there's gonna be like a "best in show" winner or something? I know everyone gets a medal but is there one person who gets the top tier?

    That'd mean it's a contest, and need judging. No.

    Does an image post on this threat counts as a 72 hrs entry ?

    It's almost as if most people did it only for the medal... I feel that's stupid... The point of the Jam is to test your limits, not to get a medal... sure, it's nice to get a medal, but it's much better to know that you can make a functioning underground 3cp payload map in 72 hrs, than getting a small medal, that lets be honest, most of the people probably wont even wear...

    I personally did it for testing how far I can go. there were some mistakes on my map here and there. *COUGH COUGH* Sightlines *COUGH COUGH* But, it's not about the medal, it's all about how far can you go, before you can release your map.

    The medal being released in the update just means that it's now available for the admins to hand out. The admins still need to go through all the entries to make sure there's no low-effort entries (like those ms paint drawings that we got last year, which would take 10 minutes to do), and compile a list of who needs a medal. Once they have that list, they can then ask Valve to give the medals to everyone who participated in the Jam. It takes a while, especially with the number of entries that we had this time.
