When posting maps to this forum please make sure you don't add any tag to the maps, especially not kz_, because this will lead to major cofusion and problems if the map will be denied or accepted but changed later (people will need to overwrite the old .bsp and so on).
Also your map is not kz_'ed in this stage of the submission yet, technically speaking, even if it will be accepted later.
The thread name must equal the name of the map. Your post must include the authors name, a download link and you must point out whether you want it to become a kz_ or a custom map.
Your map must include a timer and must be compiled using -nowadtextures, so that there are no seperate wad files. (screenshot)
You must post your map in a .rar archieve in a way that people can extract it to the counter-strike/cstrike/ directory.
-> This means that you should see the directories "maps", "sounds", "sprites", etc. in the root when you open the .rar file.
When you post an update of your map, make sure to mark that with a date (optional: beta number). You may write a changelog in addition to this.
If you submitted a map, make sure to save your .rmf hammer file in order to fix bugs and mistakes other people find.
Participating in a mapcheck
All site rules apply and do not go offtopic! These threads are just about the maps, nothing else.
Your help is welcome. Participate as often and as much as you want. You can, but you do not have to vote.
If you vote for a map, reason your decision. Simple comments that include a vote, but do not reveal that you actually played and thought about the map, will not be taken in consideration. The best way to prove your honesty is to participate in the mapcheck before voting.
It may happen that a live-check is necessary and useful. If that is the case, an admin will contact and inform you about details.
Please take in consideration that your map might be running on our online server and members might do a live-check with you as well.
Resubmitting your map
When your map was denied in the first place, it is possible to resubmit it after heavy changes have been made. You can find suggestions and ideas how to improve your map in the first thread. Please add a changelog when resubmitting it!
Thanks for your understanding.

|Joined: 22/08/2006||I would like to ask if we can use any national community tag while submitting, example: mapname -> bkz_mapname or mapname -> kzsca_mapname ? The question goes because you said "don't add any tags". |

|Joined: 11/05/2005||Depends on the rules of the national communities I guess, if it is fine for them, it is fine for XJ as well. |
But please note: custom maps can't be posted in this forum, they only go via maprelease forum -> nominations.
