    Haha... I regret I didn't put more time on my other spell idea, instead of the spell I submitted :( Well, congratulation to the winners! :)

    It got actually reviewed! Nice. But I got 5/20 for my originality even with my unique blue hole instead of a black one, how could that have happened :p.
    Congrats to the winners, and I agree with the fact that no matter how long the code is the spell must be cool and usefull ingame.
    People that play the games simply dont care about code, and in the end they are the ones we make our maps for (well, that is my point of view).

    what about the beta keys?
    did anyone but me not get one yet?
    I really don't want to appear greedy since winning this contest, getting a few +rep and an awesome icon is pretty much already but the time will be over soon.....

    Gratz to the winners!

    Thanks for taking your time to review them, Trigger.

    Though, this contest seems the most dramatic contest ever, and not due to the judge. =_='

    People aren't willing to admit that it's their fault that they didn't win. Not that not winning is a travesty or anything, they just really wanted the beta key and are going to bitch and whine if they think it will give them the slightest chance of getting it. Back in the day I hosted T&S spell contests every few weeks with a negligible prize (10 rep), and there was essentially no complaining; everyone left happier than they came in. Prizes do things to people.

    Perhaps this is a likely scenario for some of our younger members, wanting to blame their loss on a technicality and use TriggerHappy as a scape goat for their shame. I would say that the same cannot be said for everyone who was complaining, though. I have absolutely no need for the beta key since not only had I already downloaded the torrent and gained access to the Galaxy Editor, but I was also explicitly selected to participate in the beta testing so I was able to sign on BNet too.

    My arguments were based on the rules of the contest, and my opinion of the rules still stands. I have been disappointed with the contest for months, and it has nothing to do with the outcome of the participants. As I said, some of our younger members may be a little whiny but don't start grouping everybody who was complaining about this contest together. I had, and still have, reason enough to be completely disappointed in this contest.

    Also, almost every single member who participated in the contest is more active than TriggerHappy, so they have every right to be pissed off that he isn't doing his fair share of the work. Everybody completed their submissions in a timely fashion (though the contest wasn't setup very well to begin with) only to have to wait for twice as long for the spells to actually be reviewed.

    I think that's more accurate berbanog. I already have a key, and was going to ask TriggerHappy to select a 4th place if I placed (which I didn't).

    Some of us, including myself, submitted a map the day the contest was announced.

    But even after all of that, I don't think that gives any of us the right to be disappointed with the contest. The rules are the rules and it wasn't our job to set them.
