I've just (finally) posted three tutorials which have been a long time coming:

<ul><li>Detailing Maps</li><li>Diagnosing Problems</li><li>Globals 2</li></ul>

Congratulations to their respective authors.

The new competition has been posted. Looks jolly fun to me.

I have finally actually coded the 'modding capabilities' section in users' profiles which many of you noticed mocked-up in Seventh's profile. Go and check the appropriate boxes in your profile.

Also, I've fixed the reply count issue leading to the "invalid thread" errors.

"Seventh monkey", who so kindly impersonated a staff member and spammed the forums, turned out to be jay-dk. His accounts have, of course, been suspended. In future, if people spam the forums, ignore the threads. Posting "OMG LOL HE IS SPAMMING WHERE ARE MOD?" is not helpful.

Edit: It has recently come to our attention (via IP tracing and whatnot) that we have, once again, been bombarded by a barrage of spam accounts. This act is not tolerated on this site and will result in banning.

However, I will not leave it there. The main instigator of this activity is none other than Jimmi (whom some of you know). What follows is a list of known aliases:

-The Protagonist

There is also the possiblity that there are many more. If you have any information, please contact either Ant, Seventh-Monkey or RabidMonkey.

I've added the tag "[s]", which provides <span style="text-decoration: line-through">strike-through</span> text, to the bbCode parser. You can use it in the forums and journals, etc., now.

There, the results for competition #19 have been posted. Phew.

The next competition will appear soon. It's a From Base, too...

Good news, everyone! Penguinboy<a/> has supplied us with a new Source tutorial, this one concerning the construction of 3D Skyboxes! Check it out <a href="">here.

Rather than create a new post, I've decided to tack this other bit of news onto this one: DarkKilauea's long awaited Blinding Tunnel Light Trick is finally online.

By the way everyone, if you've sent us a Tutorial Proposal and haven't heard anything about it for a while (be it after you've sent a draft, or if you haven't receieved a confirmation), please PM me and I'll go chase things up. Us mods have real lives too you know...

Good news, everyone! Captain P, Daubster and MuzzleFlash are now assisting Ant and I in marking up tutorials. Hooray! This will mean a quicker turn-around from draft to release.

Good news, everyone! I've put the Biographies section of user profiles back. Some of you oldies may remember them. They were replaced by our Journals, but I think they're worthy of seperate inclusion for more permenant babble, so have stuck 'em back.

Righty, the Transport Hub competition results have finally been posted: Dr. Mapper got the gold by default, as nobody else entered!

On a cheerier note, the new competition is MuzzleFlash's HLDM one. Have a look.

The Transport Hub competition closes in a day and a half. Send in your entries if you haven't already done so... even unfinished, they'll be likely to win you a trophy.

If you're banned, go away. If you keep making accounts Alex and I will be forced to initialize the super-banstick on you, and it doesn't feel very good.

Within a day or so of each other, both our long-awaited Source server, and a suprise HLDM server, have both become available. MuzzleFlash is the owner of the HLDM server, which he has kindly made public. He even put "TWHL" in the name so you can't miss it. Have a look at the details.

TheBlackViper is, in turn, just finishing work on the Source server, which will be playing CS:S, HL2DM, and other games. Its details are here.

Both server owners are, of course, accepting map submissions from TWHL members! Take the opportunity to playtest your map with your forum buddies and get some real-time feedback.
