    Yes, fanfiction is allowed if it relates to TF2

    I dunno if I can do it for this but I had a TF2 Crossover Fanfictions in progress. I have those in DeviantArt, so is it allowed? I'm curious

    I'm interested in doing this, but I have one question that may be considered a dumb question, at that.

    Does music made for TF2 count as well? Because I can't do anything else but that.

    I can't make maps, but I am an artist of sorts, so I will see what I can do. Definitely interested.

    Heads up, anyone who wants to use the fancy countdown clock made by @Geit that All The Cool Streamers™ are using these days can find the information they need to set it up here:


    The instructions are for an older version of OBS, but the clock still works and the setup is very similar.
    The UNIX timecode for this year's Jam should be 1487008800, correct me if I'm wrong.

    If you want to customize your clock and re-skin it to fit your needs, @fubarFX figured out how to!


    If you're lazy, here's a link to the default one with this year's times already set up:


    Also, are we getting the clock back at the top of the site? I always liked when we did that.

    Seeing that I can write some fanfiction, I wanna ask how I have to post it.

    Do I just copy+paste it in a new discussion that I made or...?

    (Terribly sorry for being so clueless, It's my first time.)

    We prefer that you start something new - though perhaps this could be a new chapter.

    No worries! The important thing is that you create the "download" as if you had a file, as described in the OP. You can then link to a google drive file or similar, upload a word document or something, or just copy it all into the download details (though I don't remember what the word limit is for that.

    Is there any way to start and end my 72 hour period LATER than schedule? I'm stuck at hospital and, ugh, quality of state healthcare here is plain horrible.

    I do hope operation will pass well and that I can attend normal time corridor instead of screwing up with everyone's plans.

    I hope everything's okay! Starting late might mean you can't get into the showcase post, but the medal etc will still be available.

    I think you'd be the first to do a music piece! If dance is allowed then certainly an original composed music piece would be too.

    RIP my entry i was anticipating so much for past weeks. Everything went "well" except... that i have to stay here for 5-7 days with only smartphone having internet connection.

    P.S. Lesson to be learnt : Life is cruel. And you can only deal with it.

    Hi,I'm very new to mapping but I think I'll give it a try. I got a few questions. Does the map have to be perfect with skybox,lightnings etc? Can you only use dev textures on your map?
    Thanks
