About This Site

We are a community of hobbyist and professional level designers who share insights, opinions, rants, and flames. While most of us focus on Quake and Quake III Arena, we also have members who map for Doom 3, Half-Life 2, Quake 2, Cube, and more. Our community had previously gravitated around the late QMap message board, but when that died, I built this replacement.

Though this website is copyright © 2002-2017 John Fitzgibbons, it follows closely in the footsteps of QMap, and as such some credit must go to Paul "Peej" James. All posts and threads are copyright their respective authors.

How do I submit news?
On either the news page, or the forum page, find a link labelled "submit news" and click on it. Fill out the form on the following page and submit it. Note that your news submission will not be visible on the news or forum pages until a moderator has seen it and approved it. If your submission is rejected, it will be converted to a regular post in the general abuse thread for people to read. 
What HTML markup is allowed in my posts?
You can use <q>quote</q>, <b>bold</b>, <i>italics</i>, <u>underline</u>, and <s>strikethrough</s>. You can create hyperlinks in two ways. First, any strings starting with "http://" or "ftp://" (up until the next space or newline) will automatically become a hyperlink. Second, you can use the HTML format <a href="url">label</a> to create a hyperlink with the label text you want. All other markup is disabled. 
I tried logging in but it just reloads the login page. WTF?
This is usually a problem with Func_Msgboard not getting the HTTP referer from your web browser. In Opera, there should be a feature called "referer logging" and you should enable it. Norton Internet Security also seems to block this bit of info by default. I'm sure there are others, so the trick is to look at the settings for your browser or security software to figure out how to send Func the referer. 
I have a question that isn't answered here. What now?
