thanks for taking the time to describe how things went with the judging, birdman, but knite already explained (very nicely) this a few pages back, and I don't think the problem is the judging process but the results.
the yellow linked text got my attention so I'm going to reply to this - there's a big difference between "crying because I didn't win" and "being disappointed by the results of the contest". it's so big, even you should see it.
anyway kid, I wish you good luck writing another nice wall of text I won't read either. I see you're good at it.
I see a hell of a lot more crying than 'disappointment'.
Only a few people stated their thoughts in a mature manner.
If you read back you'll see several 'angry' people stating vulgar and unnecessary statements.
I, myself, did not like the chosen winners...but what can you do?
I didn't want to join in on this topic until everybody settled down.
I must say, there were millions of other ways some of these people could have handled this situation..
It's too bad they chose to act more like a child than a man.
I chose to shut my mouth before making myself look stupid, then opened it up later when nobody cares anymore. ^^
