    For those that haven't realized it yet. GMT+1 09:00 was three hours and 41 minutes ago.
    So the contest was offically started at that point. So there's no need to hold back folks.

    That is all, enjoy the contest.

    Not really steampunky as of right now, but I think it's hard to tell with just the head. Steampunk is usually about gears. And steam. This looks like thermal energy or something?

    Well I wager I'll join in on this one.

    Its obvious - one use the sun to heat water. Using a furnace as a thermal source would just be plain insanity :grin:

    Aw man, stuff's about to get REAL up in here...

    I love these contests. Also I'm very gratified, MiniMage, that you chose to re-use my Judging Criteria (text-and-all) for this contest. :p I worked hard to make it clear & expressive. : )

    I had to laugh a little bit at the last bit:
    Judging prior to Polling? UNHEARD OF! :O

    Callahan, I mean that the steam aspect needs to be more prevalent than the heat aspect - right now it doesn't really make me think about steam power, but if he has like giant smoke-pipes or something.

    Well, judges make their individual judgements. The judgements will then by stacked up against one another. A poll will be held and then a final calculation will then be done, the votes and the judgements compared to see who won. By ensuring that part by part is finished, we will either get everything done quickly or we'll know who to blame for delaying everything. Win win.

    Btw, wanna be the math guy for this contest too? You did it rather well last time. ;D
    Oh and thanks for the criteria, saved me loads of time.

    Damn that's sexy. Steampunky engine is sure to follow? ;D

    Don't mess up Freddyk's gold. Steampunk essentially means steam powered. But rubber is nothing new and the concept of the vehicle is simple.
