When a host is about to create a lobby, for example, in cp_process_rc3 instead of cp_process_final, or cp_badlands_pro instead of cp_badlands, there should be a pop-up warning that they're about to play in an unpopular variant of the "real" map that they probably want to play and provide an option to switch to the regular map (aswell as one to discard the message entirely, if they know what they're doing).


I ask this because as a lobby player it's annoying when someone creates a lobby in cp_granary_pro instead of cp_granary for the sake of whatever and I bet it's due to ignorance and sometimes dodging another Granary lobby that they don't want to play.

The preferred direction for the dev team is to setup a blacklist, which would allow new maps to be introduced, while preventing koth_viaduct_rc4 from happening (it's so easy to forget the pro).

sorry for necro but cp_granary is still allowed while every league i know uses cp_granary_pro_b10 wich isn't in the Create list
cp_metalworks_rc5 is also outdated in the list - latest version cp_metalworks_rc7

TF2Center does not force you to use cp_granary instead of cp_granary_pro_b10, but it does not give you that hint nor thumbnail. For me the best would be to add newest pro versions and make some kind of wildcard for thumbnails (i.e. cp_granary*, so that cp_granary_pro_b10 gets a thumbnail as well).
