Good day everyone.
There have been some issues with the packager over the past week or two. It's a known bug, and there's a known work around for now. The root cause of the problem is being investigated and will be fixed.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you are US you may be going to the BlizzCon this year. You will be able to meet Sixen and Molsterr from the sc2mapster staff. Also most of the Curse staff will be there and we are going to organize a VIP Party :) Tell us if you come to Blizzcon!
Reminder: The Bounty Hunters tournament is this saturday, there are still open slots :)
Power Overwhelming Galactic Gladiators by Creation
Power Overwhelming Galactic Gladiators is a multiplayer Final Fantasy-like game under construction. It's no-where near release but it's already awesome. I hope it'll be playable soon :)
Island Terrain in 30 Minutes by ZeroAme
The Galaxy Editor lets you make quite amazing things in no time. Here's a small example: a detailed island made in no more than 30 minutes by ZeroAme :)
College Humor is known for making fun videos. This time they made one on Starcraft and it's actually not bad :)

Due to the number of submissions in the Blizzard Contest, they will be extending the judging deadline to October 8th. The winners will be announced then... As posted by Bashiok.
Also, congrats to Sixen on being one of the first Battle.net MVPs, ;).
There was a bug affecting people sharing their password in order to publish cross regions. You could not update a map if your editor locale was not the same as the one that first published the map. However it is now fixed! People can now update their european maps from my account without bothering me now :)
Poker Defense by Zinatic
Having a game based on random is a really scary idea. But Zinatic did not get afraid and worked on Poker Defense. I really like the concept and for once, this is actually fun to play. You can repick cards 3 times so there are great chances to get a nice combination :) The game is released on EU if you want to give it a try.
Tutorial: Metal Gear Solid Codec by Pshyched
I'm a real fan of Metal Gear Solid and when I saw that Pshyched developped the Codec interface on Starcraft 2 I was all excited! He did a full tutorial on how he did it and is providing the map :) [Skip the first 25s of the video they are useless!]
Tutorial: Update Libraries by Doubotis
You probably want to use the Library feature of Starcraft 2 for your triggers, and then release it to the public. However there's a big problem: when you update it, if people use your updated version it'll brake ALL of their triggers. This is really annoying and Doubotis found a quite hacky solution to solve this.
I really hope that we will be able to automate this process in order to make a greater use of libraries :)
Another round of blue posts. If you have a question do not hesitate to ask it there. If it's good enough i'm pretty sure Blizzard will answer it :)
