Many thanks to all the members who have contributed to the Forums here at TWHL.

I am very impressed by the standard of replies, even those that respond to the more difficult (obvious ;)) problems.

Keep up the good work because without your help there would not be a such a great community.

[Pat yourself on the back now! :) ]

I spent an hour moderating two days worth of posts in the General mapping forum and deleted anything that did not add value to the thread.
Do Not post replies in the General Mapping Forum unless you are sure that your answer will fix the problem.
I will continue to remove irrelvant posts, spam and flames.
Stay On topic... I have a special surprise for those that continue to Spam, Flame and post irrelevant answers.

We were all new once.
Please try to keep on topic and refrain from swearing.
Help out where possible and ignore Spammers.

The Community is what YOU make it...

To those leaving, Good Luck...
I hope you find what you are looking for.

To those staying,
Thank you for your dedication and commitment.
I appreciate it, and am glad you remembered that we are here to help people 'new to mapping', not to provide for those who have outgrown the need of friendly advice.

Hey all,
I thought a lot of you would be interested in this.
Pixelgames are going to be going through a bunch of maps for regular HLDM, CS, TFC, DoD, etc... almost anything they can get their hands on.
If you want to get your maps reviewed and out then now is the time.
Pixelgames will be playing entries with a few clans and on public servers, when doing these reviews, ensuring that all the maps are reviewed fairly by lot's of people. This is a great chance to get some attention.
Go to Pixelgames and then 'Submit a File'. If you would rather Upload your map, you will have to register and do it through the control panel.

While your reading stuff, have a look at: Read Me First, It's a long winded look at design and mapping.
I expect heated debate in the forums about both these tutorials.

Honest answer guy's and girl's....
When was the last time you actually read the Hammer Help file. (Tool Bar>Help>Help topics)
Seems to me that a lot of posts in the Forums could be solved by reading it?
This doesn't mean that we don't like providing helpful advice, it means that I can't believe that we are answering some of the questions, when a full description is available already.
Do yourself a favour and have a look.

Just so you don't think I am sitting on my arse waiting for compo entries, I decided to review Minimicus by SlayerA and Timefall Recension by Tlax.
I went back and played both of them again and added them to my list of Favorites.
You can veiw my thoughts HERE.

So far we have three new moderators in the IRC channel.
Why?
Because I was getting constant complaints of spamming, rude language and inappropriate comments.
I started reading the Log's and agreed... something had to be done.
The IRC channel was set up by Skeeve, it is there so that you can discuss mapping...
Use it wisely, or face a ban from the channel.

Compo uploads:
Must be in zip format!!
Due to the unpredictable nature of the server, large files will sometimes be lost. Try to keep the size down.

I will check the uploads on a regular basis, and will attempt to contact you if there is a problem.
To do that, I need your e-mail address to be visible in the member profile area...

For those of you with access to your own website, I will accept a .txt file in a .zip that details the download path to your entry. Just upload that through the submission page as normal.
