Case in point, "workshop/arena_byre.ugc454142123" has the last character cut off and that's one of the shortest map paths of a workshop map in long form.

A fix for this was merged into 1.8 back in late June as part of Pull Request #226.

Edit:
Code:
Server has been empty for 60 seconds on this map, cycling map as per mp_mapcycle_empty_timeout_seconds
CHANGE LEVEL: workshop/koth_frozenrails.ugc454366797
L 09/04/2015 - 01:18:16: [SM] Changed map to "workshop/arena_byre.ugc45414212"
[TF Workshop] Preparing map ID 45414212
[TF Workshop] Map ID 45414212 isn't tracked, adding
[TF Workshop] Tracked map 45414212 has no filename and will not sync
[TF Workshop] Map failed to sync, load will not go well :(
CModelLoader::Map_IsValid:  No such map 'maps/workshop/arena_byre.ugc45414212.bsp'
Unable to change level!
Sorry, which cset do you think should be backported? Not that this is the proper forum nor thread at all.

We probably need a report button in Plugin subforum to remove bad plugin asap.

A report button already exists on every post, as well as private messages.

I actually liked a forum where I could see the new plugins.. Its so messy now.

Suggestion: What about having a "new plugin" section and then just move plugin to "plugins" after two weeks or so (without inspecting them)? Just so people have a chance to see the new plugins in an easy way. Or maybe create a forum that shows the latest XX threads created in "plugins" ?

This was addressed both 8 and 9 posts above your own post. You can tell the forum to sort threads by date created.

So.... can every plugin utilize the "servers with this plugin" field now?

I also find the forum names weird. "Plugins" and then right next to it "Unapproved Plugins". The former needs a better adjective behind it so it looks less awkward on the main page. Maybe like "Released Plugins" (bad example)?

I agree.

Suggestion: Move the order of the forum such that it is:

Plugins | High-Traffic Plugins | Plugin Gameplay Ideas & Requests | Unapproved Plugins

That makes it a lot less awkward IMO. Furthermore, if unapproved plugins are plugins that people shouldn't use, it deserves to be at the far right of the list.
