in the name of the tmw development team and the tmw community i would like to thank you very much for the contribution. we really need some enthusiastic mappers.

you can send it to the developer mailing list ( themanaworld-devel at lists dot sourceforge dot net) or upload it somewhere and post the link here. then the developers can integrate it into the game and release it with the next version so everyone can play on it.

maybe you would like to make some more maps in the future? with the new tileset maybe? i can give you the link to the tileset and the mapping instructions for it as soon as the wiki is up again.

Crush... it seems to me you're being very theatrical. But maybe you're in drama school atm. :P

AoH, great you want to help and you evenmore did something. We can't guarentee we'll use your work before we've seen it. I'm sure you understand that. So if you'd like to upload the map, feel free to do so and we'll

The server hosting the wiki had been cut from the internet since last friday, but it's back online and the wiki will probably be back very very soon after some data and configuration restoring.

what was complicated about tiled? it was quite intuitive to me.

does your editor use our map and tileset format?

maybe you would like to make your editor public, so people who don't understand/like tiled could use your map editor instead. you should also consider making it open source, so other people can improve it.

Yeah, I'd like to hear any problems you have with Tiled, so that I can work on fixing them.

No, since it's human-readable XML, it's supposed to be "self-explanatory". That said, you can always ask questions about it on the user mailing list http://rpgdx.net/mailman/listinfo/tiled-user_rpgdx.net.
