The Future of the Contests

Hi all!

I just wanted to say thank you all for participating in the contest. Whether you entered an animation, helped answer questions for the contestants, or simply voted. This participation is one of the reasons I love this forum so much. I hope that everyone had a positive experience with it.

That being said, I've also found a greater respect for Lost Marble. Volunteering to moderate this remarkably tame (that is, minimal conflicts and virtually no complaints; suggestions don't count) forum, was more work than I had anticipated (hence the unfortunate delay in the judges decision). I'm amazed at Lost Marble's patience with all of us making insane requests, stupid questions, and blatantly false accusations, all while trying to be cheerful and helpful. Hats off to 'the Marb'.

For the future, I'm going to have to step back as the moderator for the contests. It was fun, but I don't have the time to run it as it needs to be run (even in a less formal format). That's not to say that the contest forum will be dissolved, but only that I won't be in charge of it.

Thank you all for your participation. I hope you enjoyed it, and that it will continue on in some form, even as an informal "challenge" based contest. Next time we meet I will be a competitor. :D
