    All working, non-disqualified maps will be ran on the tf2maps servers April 1st, and probably for awhile after as well. I'll be testing them a bunch the following weeks to make my judgement, depending on how many we get.

    That reminds me. I wanted to make "2fort but it's Hightower but it's Powerhouse", but I never got the chance to.

    I might make it for the contest, but no promises.

    I don't think any workshop-tier meme maps will score high for originality points, but Muselk might play them.

    turrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrbine and 2fooooooooooooooooort were a mistake, I'm sorry everyone. (Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell is ok though, that took a bit of effort)

    Fun fact, I originally made turrrrrrrrrrrrrrrbine as a submission for last year's gameday but I didn't get around to submitting it for some reason (I think there was a rule against map edits?) so I uploaded it as its own thing for April fools. I had no idea how memey it would cause the Steam Workshop to become :(. I still feel really bad about a lot of maps that took weeks or months of effort being knocked off the frontpage by garbage like "turbine but highertower is copypasted in and it's fullbright".

    I am working on something for this years contest, and don't worry it's not another long map.

    @Whomobile You created them? Props to you, it was quite a novel idea in my eyes, but yeah, it's a shame people jumped at the opportunity to create low-effort meme maps. Don't feel guilty for causing it, because I expect it would've happened anyway, and it was with good intentions, heh

    Alright, so somebody made a prefab that I wanted to use for this contest. It was made like 2.5 years ago, and it was not intended for anything specific. Am I allowed to use it in this contest, or will I have to find a new idea?

    Depends on how much of the prefab your map is. Is it a small part, or the entire gimmick?

    It was going to be pretty much the entire gimmick, and based on how you worded your question, I'd say that means I should probably go for something more original. Thanks for the help!
