    So, this year had its up's and down's and we're finally done.

    "It has been a very long and trying contest for all of us, with judges and hacks both coming in at the 11th hour and the apparent loss of Samantha, who we all wish well. I am just glad that this year's contest is over, and I promise you, next year will be better for all of us.

    I can't believe I freakin won A trophy, and Bets Level Layout at that. I was shooting for Art, and I got soemthing much better. I have to say, I am proud of myself.

    I won two trophies?

    Best palettes? Damn, I thought my palettes were good, but I didn't think they were GREAT! Nice to see that people find my palettes appealing.

    Longest level? Geh-heh... and people are always annoyed with my GHZ2. Hive, you were an evil sod, but I love you. You allowed me to win the LRZ trophy. I can't thank you enough for letting me use your old layouts.

    I have to say, the four seconds of work it took to make that was worth it. This is probably the best day of my life.

    Next years contest will be starting around New Years, and probably ending around the start of August. There have been a lot off good hacks lately, and I hope I get to see them next year.

    Argh, fuck. I don't see my hack anywhere, unless I'm blind.

    I should've fucking kept my Sonic Advance hack in there. =P

    EDIT: "Rainbow Trophy - Sonic The Lost Lands"
    Was the dynamic palette system part of the reason he won? I'm not trying to take the win away from SF, just wonderin'.

    "Most like a Sonic game" is pretty much what I was aiming for.

    How did my Shade hack not win ANY trophies? D:

    I didn't really expect S1NS to win anything much anyway, after I realized how horrible it was myself. Therefore, I am currently in the process of majorly revamping it to make it better. Hopefully next year will be better.

    I think that may have contributed to it, but that wouldn't be the main reason. I was proud of those palettes. However, both wins do say "Sonic: The Lost Lands", so he could be referring to both of my hacks, or it's just a typo. :P

    I did have rather nice palettes in my S2 hack. :)
