A few days ago we put up a short and simple survey to give us some feedback about the site. As we move into a new year, we're going to start working on some improvements to TF2Maps.net based on the results we've obtained from the survey. You might have noticed some things have changed as we've rolled out our first wave of improvements, and I'd like to run you through exactly what has changed: Tutorials is now its own forum Before, the tutorials forum was a subforum of "Mapping & Tutorials". This made it be hidden from a lot of people, so we've moved it out, made it the Tutorials & Resources forum, and "Mapping & Tutorials" is now just Mapping Discussion. This should make finding the tutorials forum easier for new users, and hopefully will encourage more tutorials to be posted. We've reduced the forum clutter We'd like to think our site is pretty important, but does it really need two forums to handle its business? If we have any major announcements, they'll be posted to Featured News. Everything else site-related is now handled through the Front Desk. Also, the Portal 2 and Minecraft forums weren't getting much traffic, so they've been archived. A new Games Talk forum has replaced them, and includes threads from the previous two forums as well as some discussions that have been moved out of Off Topic. This forum should be used for the discussion of any game that isn't Team Fortress 2, which has its own Team Fortress 2 Talk. Team Fortress 2 Talk, Off Topic, and VIP Lounge have been moved to a new category alongside Games Talk, for better forum organization, with all mapping and content creation discussion in one place, and more general discussion in another. Also, Introduce Yourself is now a subforum of Off Topic. And there's even more! Here's some other, smaller changes we've introduced: We've added a vdc bb code. Wrapping a word in tags will produce a link to that page on the [url=http://developer.valvesoftware.com]Valve Developer Community.[/url] [*]We've added a tf2wiki bb code. Wrapping a word in [tf2wiki] tags will produce a link to that page on the [url=http://wiki.teamfortress.com]TF2 Wiki[/url]. [*] Maps and Downloads are now separate links in the navigation, with Maps going to the [url=http://forums.tf2maps.net/forumdisplay.php?f=44]Maps forum[/url] and Downloads to the [url=http://forums.tf2maps.net/downloads.php]Downloads section[/url]. [/list] We'd love to hear your thoughts on these changes, as feedback is important to us as we work to improve the site.
