    I've had to resubmit my entry form as I've no longer available on the 3rd, so I've moved over to the 4th. I take it that that is acceptable.

    Thats fine. Sign-ups are still open for about three-four hours as of this post - i'll be taking down the form when I post the next schedule.

    Week Two Schedule

    Because i'm super lazy and because there are fifty entries and because this site's table code sucks, i'm just going to link to the schedule here, instead of copying it all out.

    Schedule is here! it's not a malicious link: just google docs

    If this is not right, or if you want to sign up to enter, please PM me, because the sign-up sheet is now closed! The same things as before apply, so i'm going to copy them out here too:

    The submission thread is here! For a submission you will need a download and a screenshot, though you will not need a thread on tf2m.

    As a reminder, if you require a grace period, contact me ASAP. The point of this is a speedmapping event, so I will only be handing out grace period for gamebreaking technical issues - forget your control point? You can have one. Forget clipping? Guess your map has a whole unexpected verticality, hope it plays well.

    I'll be asleep for the first few hours - if you need any help or testing, get in touch with a staff member who is around - your best bets are @Crash and @Freyja.

    Can I have my time changed to 4pm-11pm UTC, Sat? I won't be able to start when I wanted to and I don't want to stay up even later than I was already going to.

    I'm sure this is going to be completely 100% stress-free and my final map is going to be extremely high-quality. There's no reason to worry at all. No reason whatsoever.

    pls help, dying inside

    One question though, how exactly do detail maps get judged? Just based on aesthetics? Does the size of the area and the quality of the gameplay matter?

    @LeSwordfish I stated earlier that I will not be participating this Saturday, when you have time can you please remove the post from the spreadsheet. Thank you if you do.

    Edit:

    Thank you because you did. :)

    It's going to be a public judging process, so that's up to the public. I very much hope the quality of the gameplay will not - and i'll be including notes to that effect..
