I don't know if your really taking mapping seriously with this map, and yes it probably should have gone in your infinity's topic. The map is too narrow in some places, specifically in the area with the lava texture where the vacuum bob teleports in. I can barely get past that area. I also felt like there could be a few more textures too. The end is untextured. There isn't a lot of monsters, and no guns other than the pistol, either. Adding more monsters and guns would be good. Keep working, though, and you will get better.

First, make sure the entire player path doesn't get narrower than 0.5 WU. Next, try some rooms instead of just hallways. Third, try some height variation. Once you do that, you can graduate to lights and liquids and switches and all the other basics.

If you're not testing your own maps, which looks fairly likely, then shame on you. To present a map which you yourself are unable or unwilling to play is condemnable.

You didn't change the height of a single polygon in any of the maps, or use any lighting. If you actually want to try putting effort into making a map then I'll gladly review it.

The ceiling is a bit too low over the stairs, making it hard (or impossible in some places) to go back down them. They definitely are stairs though.
