Self-explanatory. I'd like to introduce people to ctf_Argonia and plenty of other great maps but so far you can only download maps the server has, not what you have :-/
And if you can't change that, then can the command /maplist be implemented so you can see a list of maps the server carries?
It would be a good ability but every n00b map maker will be voting their map every 2 minutes, which would disconnect everyone at the map change. Could this also pose server security exploits?
It's far too dangerous to implement it.

Plus, since everyone would be voting their own map, there would be no majority slection, thus no map change.
Yea it would be cool but this will not work at all.
People will vot every second indeed , casuing a spammage and no successful votes.
Since the file gets opened on the server it is not difficult to create virusses I think , like store them in BMPs , PNGs or JPGs (It is possible)
And last but not least: It will remove the pride of having your own map running on a dedicated server.

Maybe implement a system where you can only vote after a certain ammount of time (Something bigger, like 5 minutes or something)
Vote selection stays for 1 minute, if not enough votes, another vote can't be made until 4 minutes later?
Only problem I could see is if you get stuck on a [CENSORED]ty map for that ammount of time, but it's better then having spammers who vote the second the vote window goes off.
