I think it would be good to have a sub forum under gaming, for mappers and modders, for all games, sort of like the Developers, Webmastering and Programming forum, except its just for gaming, and it would be a interesting and good learning experience for everyone, people who don't know much about mapping, and people who know lots, I will make some tutorials for mapping in hammer if this forum is created, and I could help other gamers (who don't know much/anything about mapping) and they could be making there own maps in no time, I know there is a few mappers in the forum, but this could quickly increase with this forum. Thanks
currently...we are not looking to add anymore forums. thats not to say that we wont consider it later down the road. right now tho, we have some other projects going on that are demanding more immediate attention/focus.
I don't see it getting enough traffic to warrent a whole sub-forum to itself. I like the "Official" thread you've already started. If it does get a bunch of traffic it will stay bumped to the first page. If it can't do that, there's no way it needs a sub-forum.
I do like the idea of tutorials though.
