Khreathor was kind enough to make a countdown to the deadline.

If someone could lend me a hand with testing I would be very grateful! I'm nearly done with this map, it only needs an artpass and different skill settings.
Heres the DL: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g6nwbrtynkw2ec1/xmasjam_spipper.zip?dl=0
Also what is the exact naming convention for this jam? Should I call the map xmasjam_spipper or xmasjam2018_spipper?

Just saw this. Feel free to send it to the event email listed in the original post and I’ll check it out tonight.
And also make sure it exits to ‘start’
Per Ionous it's xmasjam2018_pseudonym

Thanks for the answers.
Just sent you a slightly newer version of the map.
But otherwise no, haven't had it tested yet.

I always find these jams on the last day or when they are over! I seen some screenshots on twitter for some cool maps, so its looking good!

Discord is for cat pics and cuntflaps (meaning both skacky's links and Shambler's personality). The rest starves out Func in favor of an exclusive platform.

At least there are no anons there.
func is not a great place to drive new mappers. I'm not the first person to say this. It's an acquired taste. I do see func as the place to save "evergreen" information and I'd hate to see it die.
Using multimedia here is painful though and I think that an the immediacy is the best thing about Discord.

Inclusive platform, fully supportive of func, includes Xmasjam channel and liberal main channels.

I totally acknowledge Discord is a bit more (new) user-friendly than this forum, one could maybe even regard it as a modern version of the func_layout. And it's certainly nice for new people to be able to get mapping-related questions answered right away since there's always someone online, without having to search through the board or wait a certain time for a reply. But initially it's not as accessible being a private platform and thus indeed exclusive, because it requires invitation links and those are usually burried somewhere not immediately visible.
You can't deny the activity here has decreased noticably, and while this is of course not all thanks to Discord, it's still a downside if the majority of people choose to discuss jams and post feedback on releases (if at all) there instead of the public threads here where 'outsiders' can see them even long afterwards.
Just an observation.
TL, DR: Get Back On Discord For Some Epic Bantz, Neggerz.

The deadline is in 36 hours, so if you've got something in progress, you're in the home stretch. Hey, if you feel like even making a speedmap for this, go for it.

It's perfectly possible to interact on both, I always try to and encourage people to do so, posting news, map feedback, discussions etc (should be obvious from my threads on here).

We could always split the difference by reposting the important discord conversations here, like we used to do with the #tf IRC stuff.

i missed the activity of func in its prime
func also had the rare honour of being literally the only website i could bring up on my shitty mobile phone going back a few years before smartphones happened
i particularly respected it for that
i'd be on like a 3 hour train ride with just a nokia dumbphone, and func was the only thing i could browse.
really focused me
made me appreciate what was important in life
you could say that era shaped me into what i am today

fucking hell that's some damning condemnation of the func scene

I did have a useful point which is that: information posted on func is easily googleable, can be accessed anywhere without needing membership/invites.
Bottom line: if there is some good useful shit posted on discord that really needs to be archived, just repost it to func. I've done it a few times when I've discovered some useful compiling/mapping info that I think others need to be aware of.

These are all looking good.
Strideh's (the one with the red sky) is particularly interesting...love it when a new theme really pulls it off well.
Love that you are staying on theme. I like these.
@Kinn agreed about cross posting Discord goodies to func! Most of the time notice of speedmaps and jams are posted here first as the official resource and home. The we post news items in support.
I am on Discord and func daily. I'm not abandoning either one.
