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.

There's a little community competition for a Map Vault Award going on at the moment to try and get people more active in the 'Vault. All you have to do is write some good reviews before Christmas. Have a look at the forum thread for more information.

I've added a little checkbox to toggle the forum indicator key and (new) forum descriptions being shown. Go and have a look.

Beta versions of the ZHLT for 64-bit OSes are now freely available at the official site. Along with the 64-bit build there is a nice addition for those who map for Spirit, with Cpt_Andrew adding an env_sky fix to the code.

Along with the little avatars, people with small screens will now be shown fewer posts per page in the forums and similar.

Now the "big screen" checkbox in one's profile determines whether the reduced-size avatars are used on the forums next to peoples' posts. Nice, I hope.

Kasperg has now started our second Source competition, Transport Hub. Since it's a bit bigger than usual, you have seven weeks. Now, get started!

I've posted the results of the first Source competition properly now. It closed in September, but I had to wait until there were no competitions running to add it. Kasperg, Rabid and Cpl1nsane will now have nice trophies in their profiles.
