I checked out your chamber titled "tower pt 1". If your thumbnail picture really represents the map you made, you should really check out some guides on how to make good test chambers. Here are some guidelines: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=155812535¨

I tried out your map and I have a few notes to share:
1) It isn't fun. Why? Because it's a maze AKA a labyrinth, not a puzzle (at least not in Portal-kind-of-way)
2) Typically Portal test chambers introduce a problem, which you have to solve, working your way through a maze isn't the same as solving a problem.
3) Again, it's a maze, not a puzzle.
4) If your test chambers are BIG, make sure there's a reason for it. Again, maze isn't a valid reason.
5) In your map's workshop page I suggest you use pictures of your actual level. They represent it way more than what you have there right now.

Conclusion: keep revising your maps. Try to make them fun. Problem solving is fun, mazes aren't fun. Portal 2 is a game about portals, utilize them. And read that guide I linked above!

Also here is another guide to making good maps: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/discussions/-1/882949475710689142/?appid=620

In a more fundamental level, Portal 2 is a game about exploring solutions, not about exploring maps.
