    I like entertaining people, so seeing people have fun/like my maps encourages me to keep going.

    It's a creative outlet for me, and it's always fun to run around on something that you made, seeing other people who are also enjoying it.

    Just like my old saying goes:
    Or it may also go like this:
    I am quite anti-social for sure, but this saying does the trick.
    At least it does for me. (So please don't judge me!) :<

    Mapping is fun, and my hammer skills let me feel like I'm good at something.
    Nah, im actually quite good at English and better at Russian than most of the Russians but would that count?

    That's an awesome way of looking at it. I'll keep that in mind next time someone plays on my maps.

    Entertaining others and just creating stuff or generally just being creative is fun and motivating to me.

    I want as many people to fall into cruel deathpits as absolutely possible.

    Nah, i've always been more of a creator rather than a player, ever since i started making levels for Mr. Robot on the C64. With Hammer, i can be creative and look at awesome things i created without having to wear pants. That's a big plus.

    Whenever i play a game with mechanics i really enjoy (which includes pretty much every quake-like arcade shooter) i always ask if i can map for that.
