As you know, the point of mapster is to help you, the map maker, whether that be by the tutorial section, trigger/data questions, or just getting your map out there, if we can help, we will try. One of the powerful tools we have is the front page. Though its true only people who view the site, will end up seeing the front page, the truth is we get a great deal of front page views that never make it to the project workplace section, or other areas like that, however they also come to check out new maps on the front page.
So today I bring you an easy way to submit your map. Simply fill out the information for your map and hit submit!
Things to know
-You must have a youtube video for your map.
-You must have a project page or thread on these forums to link to.
-Sometimes there are important things we need to news, or there might be people in front of you, so please be patient, if you submit your map, we will get to it (unless you PM with you an issue)
-If you have issues with submiting your map, please send me (molsterr) a PM
-Please try to keep your description simple, yet full of the "fun" and interesting information about your map that you want people to see.
FOR NOW, send me (molsterr) a pm if you submit something, so I can make sure everything is working good!

I have it stickied in the project workplace, we have so many stickies in this section already =P
and if we see an amazing map, we'll still PM the user asking if they want it on the front page.. but this way, more users will know that this is something they can do, so its just to help them out.
its also preferred this way...as I made a full system backstage that will automatically keep track of these submissions a well as auto generate all the wiki code for the news article =P
So..much preferred if people just used this =P
