For those not being in our Facebook Group:
The new alpha version is out now. It will be an alpha version till next tuesday 2017-10-31 (to fix minor bugs). We upload only a few maps for testing, if the system is working. All maps have to be uploaded after validating them again on the ExtraWorld website now.
The official version of ExtraWorld will be pushed online on 2017-11-01 to enable best stunts of the month and other features at month start.
Before the release every datas will be deleted again next tuesday (maps, records, best stunts, etc..) to have a clean start.

I will add a pranking manialink in some days, in case of competitions are based on points ranking and not on average map records ranking.
BTW, i think it's pertinent to have a different server login for each competition (i think about Fire cup ), then each time a cup is finished, you can have final ranking manialink in form dranking?firecup201711 (for example).
All dates in ExtraWorld are displayed UTC, you have to add or remove hours by yourself depending of your timezone.
I will work on that for next edition.
I removed karma system, it's now 'my favorite maps' system, simply click on star to add current map in favorite maps.
I will open a server 'Stars of stunts' with all maps with more than 5 stars (in a first time)
A second server 'All maps' will be opened too. Each time you upload a map on extra world, it will be added on this server automatically. (it's checked every 5 mins)
Best scores of the month are disabled in this version (server crash at each map restart, and i will not have the time today to inspect the problem), same for server admin interface (to choose match duration etc...)
My answer: "If the server is working well, a Fire Test Cup is eventually possible after the offical release in November and after the server admin interface is working (I think its necessary for a cup). We will see what is possible".
Spaii asked me, if we can test the Fire Server with the update.
The new title looks great and has new interesting features. Its really a big progress from the old TM2-Stunts title.
For thoses who have already the previous version installed, simply restart ManiaPlanet and click on the title, it will automatically update to next edition. For others, you can download and install title by yourself during alpha.
