    Comes a major headache for me, followed by a desire to raid the fridge :p Of all the things that have gone wrong w/ our Gamedays, I believe the last one was the most ironic. I would go so far as to say we suffered from being too successful. More maps and more time, but w/ less moderation and the same number of people playing. That and Arena is still retarded :glare: Some fair criticisms started here, and turned into a good discussion of how we can improve; http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=5362 Luvs this community I do. With that in mind, the new gameday thread is up. Obviously a number of changes have been made, so please read carefully; http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=5420

    In case you had forgotten, we had this little thing called a Payload Contest not long ago ;) Well the judge's votes are in, and we have an official winner. Though I think everyone who participated wins here, since this was not an easy contest. All of the authors get my personal kudos for their time and effort. Alas, [highlander] there can be only 1!

    Lastly, we're going to try giving more power to all of you server owners out there. Drpepper is working his magic on the forum, and users will be able to post new events. Please note, they will not show up right away. In order to prevent abuse, all such events are subject to moderator approval. Speaking of events, I'll be organizing some new ones to try and establish a player base on our servers. Seems like such a waste to have them sit there 5 days a week :( In no particular order; ingame strategy talks, ingame chat about Valve detailing, instagib, (don't kill me for this one) karaoke, and just friendly playing of customs. Here's to the future my friends :thumbup:

    Edit 1: Freaking awesome! http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?p=52472#post52472

    As long as one of the songs for the Karaoke is Dinosaur by King Crimson, I'm there.

    AC/DC karaoke. It will kill our vocal cords, but it will be worth it.

    Seriously, karaoke is a great event, and would really boost community involvement
