    Great spam protection, large message storage space. Supported by the largest internet company in the world.

    I honestly can't think of a better alternative.
    And Valve seems to block Hotmail.

    Set up a Gmail account and have Hotmail redirect all your emails to Gmail.

    or

    Set up Windows Live Mail and run both Gmail and Hotmail at once.

    I do both.

    We are all still trying to figure out exactly what it is that Chet does at Valve, but at the very least he occupies office space on the 11th floor as self-proclaimed Mr. Awesome.

    Subject: [Contact Form] A question on the Artpass maps.

    Good day to all you fine gentlemenn. Hope all is well. With the introduction out of the way, I was wondering about the Artpass maps, and of course everyone's favourite axe-wielder The Horseless Headless Horsemann( Or Pumpkin Killer as we all affectionaly call him on the server before being stomped.

    What sealed the deal on Youme's and 3dnj's map, so to speak? What special quality(s) did they have that other artpass maps didn't? Did the team have a list of stuff they wanted in the map to help decide on the winner? I would love to know as I'm starting on creating a map and any answer would help me pinpoint what makes maps fun.
    Anywhos, on another note, was the Pumpkin Killer a idea that was already being developed before the artpass maps? Or did it only come in existence after? And if before, was there another Halloween map being made?
    Yours sincerely, Mark.

    The Response:

    Corey Peters
    to me

    Hi Mark,

    We had some basic guidelines to determine the winners per the contest rules: creativity, use of assets, visual quality, and if the map was in fact shippable (they did the work to optimize the level after adding content).

    It can be difficult to pin point down what makes any particular map fun. The scenario plays into that, the spaces in which players engage each other, the timing of respawns and run times, ammo and health, all of these balance the map between the two teams and make combat between them interesting in some way.

    The Horseless Headless Horseman was conceived by the team when we were designing the Halloween Update this year. The ghost was a lot of fun last year so we wanted to build on that and try something a little different. The timing of YM's entry just happened to be rather fortuitous (and of great quality) so we opted to have him live there.

    Corey
