    Just create a pseudonym and submit under that name. I think either YM or tyler did something like that a few years back, but that was before I joined.

    That was not to game a contest limiting them to one entry. This would 100% be caught and punishment doled out for it.

    YM and I both did that. In both cases it was (1) not for a contest, and (2) to escape people treating our maps a certain way because of our reputations. I do not advise doing it. It is stupid.

    So when you mean old joke maps you mean ones submitted for this contest correct? Or does this cover maps made before the event started as well.

    We are looking for new content. If it's been public/ played for awhile or played in a previous april fools event it's not allowed. Submitting an older map that has been around long before the contest isn't allowed, the idea is something made for the contest. But, I was leaving it open in case someone had something they started before the announcement, or are updating an older map to make it a joke map.

    I had a fun idea for a map, but unfortunately there is a major bug with game_ui which crashes the server if someone disconnects while using it, so can't enter sadly. Also I regret not bothering to notice this contest earlier

    OK, here's a complicated one. I made a map last year that never got played because of bugs. A partly-functional version has been publicly available for a while, but never hosted on a server to my knowledge. The map was four-stage CP. I'm currently working on a joke map that is based on one of those stages, but updated to be a complete and fully fleshed-out map (and actually work properly!) Is this a valid submission? It's ancestor has been public for awhile, but not actually played since it was part of a broken map I abandoned.

    I'm using a segment of an old payload map of mine converted into a koth
    Since you're using a segment of a non-jokemap you should be fine

    Sounds fine, as long as there are big enough changes.

    Wait, can I ask?

    I've got some problems with applications, so I can play on servers, but can't host their

    Is someone wants to host server when I complete my map?
