I believe Hourences is right. Wouldn't bet money on it, but it does have something to do with servers :)

You want a map on a server, get a 8+ on nalicity and get on the hotlist, then you might find it on a few servers.
You can search to see if your map is being played if you go to ut.ngworldstats.com and run a map search.
One of my maps got a 7 and got on the NC hotlist, according to ng stats it's been played 296 times :)
That gives me a warm feeling inside :)

Seems like it would be a good idea to embed the "face" into a name of a map. It will immediately get a LOT more attention. Some suggestions for new map names:
CTF-Facetard
CTF-Feces
CTF-BruisedFaces
CTF-ImFacingThis
....

And the files are packed versions ... You can create them by UCC with proper command line options. These are not only the maps, it is textures, sounds etc... as well.

but i was a n00b back then; not with ued, but to the whole map distribution thing. I really with i could go back in time to change the name of it. People think mappers are n00bs when they place face in the name of there maps.

UCC is in your UnrealTournament\System directory. You can compress UT files (.unr, .utx, etc.) by typing "ucc compress <filename>". That will create a .uz file.
