haha Piercy, I know that problem from the ESL Website, being created in 1999/2000... you know how old THAT is :D
You are doing a good work and no doubtly you are doing great in favour of our community.
Nevertheless there are a lot positive aspects of having everything in 1 game on 1 plattform and I definitely love the idea.

It would also help to verify uploaded files before posting them. Corrupted .gbx files that don't load (challenge) or play back (replay) or fail other integrity checks still make it online, sometimes a replay is posted as the track download, and I even saw some thumbnail files posted as tracks. :roll: (And yes, before you ask, I already tried notifying MrA about them, but he didn't seem to care.)

I hope TMX will use some new way to vote, some new way to share, or i always never agree with them.
They must think that can come the time another user do what they do but better.
And do it from a day to another.
This is a suggestion, cause many times i tested to use TMX/Dedi on my scripts, but they are tooooo unfairy, and sorry, a tournament can't be based on unfairy. (only my opinion, don't flame please!)
I will be very happy if can we work all together, but always see blind users. :|

at this time there are SO much community based projects around TM.

i think it would be great to all combine them into an ingame browser, so you have TM-Tube, TM-X, TM-Rankings, TM-Teams, and allllll the other stuff together.

would multiple ingame windows be an option?
to toggle between a race and TMX?

or between a quest and some document hosted online somewhere

Maybe it doesn't seem as great now, but on the coding side of things, TMX is such an advanced application even though it's built in VB. I doubt anyone can come close to what TMX has achieved on the development side of things. It has taken 6 years and 6 developers (more?) to get it to where it is now.

The track upload wizard only checks for extension, so you can change a JPG extension to GBX and it could pass through. :| We'll surely do our best to create a better system. ;)

We have had numerous amounts of discussions about our award system including replacements, just there are so many great things/ideas we can implement ... we just can't decide. :lol:

A great community should be spread out globally and not kept in one place, centralism is just ugly and I don't like it. Ubisoft have brought many communities into one place and destroyed them.

i dont understand your meaning of centralism well.

i think of some websitebrowser ingame with a site to all the different community projects, not all the projects taken under one roof. TMx will still work on TMX, but its all reachable from ingame.

That's quite reasonable and possible if Nadeo would like it to happen. ;)

As for the original question; TMX will officially still be around so don't panic. :ugeek:

Just throw TMX admins and coders in Nadeo and they can make an integrated track sharing system similar to TMX but with Nadeoish details as well.

Problem solved :P
