My guess is 'no' since quake live is based on advertising, and id will run all the servers.  In order for them to accept customs, mappers could only use standard textures, would have to put up those billboard banners, and then somehow get official servers to host them.

I am hoping that they will run some sort of a mapping comp, with the winning maps accepted into the game.  They did this with q4, and it really got the custom mapping community fired up.

Yeah, good point :( In regards to the modding community, I don't like the direction id's taken lately. Ah well.

My sense from the forums is "no" in the short term.  I get the sense that they will be releasing more new maps from ID.  The maps they have released so far have been well-received, although one has rain falling which plays havoc with the FPS.  The Abyss is one of my favorites.
