Congratulations to all our winners! I will be contacting you via email with more details on how you will get your prizes.

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in our contest. You've helped us get the forum back on its feet — now let's try to keep to going. I'd also like to thank our sponsors (Acube, AtariMax, and Jakks Pacific), who provided the wonderful prizes.

The contest may be over, but the forum still lives. Hopefully, I'll see you all there soon.
