My names Jamie, but I prefer to be called SpooBoy. I play games, CSS and L4D2 mainly. I work for Opposing Forces 2 as their storyboard consultant, if you got any questions about the mod don't be shy to ask. Anyways if your looking at my profile I've either pissed you off or got your attention by pissing someone else off, please, comment.

Lately I've been messing around with the Portal 2 Authorizing tools and I've fallen in love with creating test chambers and making my own Portal universe. I've seen a lot of really creative Portal and Portal 2 mods spring up, but I know many of you are only making small maps, that are not quite mod worthy. There are websites to share these creations, but I strongly believe there should be a place to share these creations on Mod DB. The idea passed through my head to create a mod page called something to the extent of 'The Portal Map Experiment' where users can submit maps and share their work. The way I'm hoping this pans out follows:

1. User submits images, videos, and or downloads to a (Portal Map Experiment) developer/moderator .
2. Said (Portal Map Experiment) developer/moderator reviews the content to ensure relativity.
3. The user is sent a letter informing them of their authorization.
4. The content is posted for the community to see and critique.
5. The process can repeat as the user so feels inclined.

To me, Mod DB screams out for a community experiences. And nothing is more in the spirit of a community than sharing, critique, and revision. This would be an effective way for mappers to get a start, and put their foot out the door into the modding community. If anyone is interested in this idea, or would like to help out, please send me a letter, or comment bellow. It would be greatly appreciated!

hmm, I know this means that I went back to check the mod again, but I was curious to see how people took what I said... (Yep, I'm a total hypocrite in denial *smiley face*) Anywho, I'd have you know that there was no rage involved in what I posted, in fact, I'm not even slightly angry that it was delayed (again). I understand that the creator of the mod has a life, and that it doesn't revolve around pleasing me. My post was a resigned statement displaying my annoyance at the whole releasing process in general. It's just never to my satisfaction. Anyway, I'm sorry if it came off as whining/rage to you, it was never meant as such.

And yes, I like posting paragraph explanations whenever my statements are taken the wrong way.
