    A few years back, a contest was put out for the best hack. Esrael, the creator of Sonic 2 Delta won the grand prize, with Kojichao?s ?More than a Memory? making an easy first. With the new ease of hacking with utilities and the hacking scene blooming with more and more hacks, this makes it a perfect time for a completely new hacking contest.

    I might enter, I might not, all depends on my schedule <_< . Frankly, I don't think I'd win if I entered regardless.

    It's not about what you think... there's lots of prizes to win, so you might as well try... and there's no "hope" about entering. If it exists and you want to enter, I'll take it. It can be as good, as bad, as inappropriate as you like. Just enter it and you're done!

    You are probably right .hack. Fiz will love this! If you want a starter take this.
    I will update it later so you can count on something new.

    Hm...

    I'm usually not one to join contests.

    I'll think about it.

    I might just enter with one of the hacks I already have done. :\ I'm lazy as of late.

    I should probably enter my Sonic 1 hack level, Canopy Cane Zone. It would probably win the Amy Trophy. Same with Rusty Realm, for Rainbow Trophy.

    Actually, I came back from the dead the very day I posted this. Scary, huh? Oh, and Mustapha, you've been added to the judge list.
