    Sooooooooooo last night, the halloween map vote switched on but we were stuck with only halloween maps to vote on with no spells and no events. I think we played 3 maps until the server died down to 3 on 3 and then we switched to normal. Busey can you fix?

    OK, I moved the tf_forced_holiday command out of server.cfg and into autoexec.cfg

    Hopefully that corrects the issue.

    Can we limit Halloween Happy Hour to just 1 hour for each night that it is active? I've noticed that the vast majority of players get sick of halloween maps after 3 in a row, and after 5 in a row it can be hard to keep the server going.

    Only people I noticed questioning how many Halloween maps last night were other admins. Didn't notice anyone complaining about the map selection.

    Why are we so concerned with populating the server verses just having fun? There were alot of us ob last night that were having a blast playing the Halloween maps. Maybe ask Busey to fire up the comp server for regular maps only.

    I prefer playing with a full server, and it isn't like those halloween maps aren't already on the normal nominate list for the duration of the season.

    Well, the vote to start this is pretty clear. And only 3 people have come out saying they don't like this idea. If you want a full server and stock maps, there's always skial.

    Just sayin....

    You know I'm a big proponent of custom maps Gary, I just like to space them out, and most custom maps don't have spells like halloween maps do.

    This would be funny if it weren't true. We may lose a few players on these maps. Which we will make up for with exposure to new players searching. FYI, stating "This map has killed the server" will usually kill the server. Its generally not the map. You are stating coyly that YOU dont want to play it. And thats ok. This has been discussed again and again. There are other servers for you and when its done, head on back. But let us enjoy it.
