The Team Fortress 2 Blog
announces the launch of the Team Fortress 2 Contribute Website
to allow the community to contribute Team Fortress 2
items and avatars, which will be added to Valve's multiplayer shooter (pending approval). Word is: "we are now accepting submissions for fan-designed TF2 items and avatars, immortalizing you in the Team Fortress 2 pantheon forever while keeping our jobs safe. Pending approval, your item will get added to your backpack, and cycled into the random item drops in-game. Blow up stuff using a weapon you created! Kill an enemy, then let him know he died in a hat you designed! Weapons, hats, avatars -- designed by you, used by the entire TF2 community."
