I've played on the maps you have been hosting and they have been fun, thanks. I have a suggestion though. You need an admin team desperately. Your server is a cheater heaven, and it is difficult or impossible to get rid of them because of their tactics with bots. Running a server is more than just throwing maps up...

yes that may have been *cough* Ultimate tank *cough* and his bots, and yes I would have to agree with Joevano "you need a admin team desperately"

I have SSH access on bzfmaps, and I have to say I like it. Servers are fast, really good uptime, and it's free! Like told before, you need admins and cops or whatever to get rid of the troublemakers and cheaters from your servers, else they will become corrupted..
Admin @ bunch of servers
And much more!

The person who submits the map to him can provide him with a group file.
Here are the instructions on how to get your map hosted.

1. Make 3 or 4 files with the template as fallows.
My_cool_map.bzw :::: Your bzflag map file
My_cool_map.conf :::: Your map's configuration settings
My_cool_map.desc :::: A text description of the map and any extra setup notes to the server admin.
My_cool_map.groups :::: (optional)Bzflag group settings file.
Perhaps he can add a group to the map if they do not provide him with one.
