    This sort of thing needs a board of people rather than one person.

    I agree with Qjimbo, but this truly is getting rediculous to the point of cancelling or rescheduling for January or even the end of August, providing judges could be picked. I'd null My submission and Judge, but I'd doubt I have the correct qualifications to be a judge.

    Well, first off, I'd like to formally apologize on my behalf, and Nayr's behalf or the lack of attentiveness and responsibility in regards to this contest. I personally take partial, if not full responsibility in regards to a lack of communication about this contest, and any relevant events.

    However, I am now going to take things in a direction that'll hopefully be able to salvage this contest.

    The new, and final deadline is to be: September 30th, 2006: 11:59PM. Any entries submitted past that date will not be accepted under any circumstances, unless I am unable to enforce that deadline.

    So basically, you have almost two weeks to prepare or finalize a submission.

    As of now, I am the only judge. (TheLazenby is being 'trialled' as a temp judge based on the current submissions. We will see how that goes) If you wish to apply, feel free to do so, but however, please keep in mind that you may not enter the contest if you wish to be a judge. If you are accepted to be a judge, please make sure that you have the time (and energy) to judge submissions shortly after September 30th. (By shortly, I mean one week at the latest.)

    Submission instructions will be available soon.

    Great, we will finally have the results for the contest. I was worried it was going to be cancelled.

    Probably, I will not enter on this year's contest. Because I needed to rush with Sonic Gaiden (rush = no quality)

    Hmm...I may be able to put something into this contest with just 4 zones plus the new DEZ with this extended deadline, although I'm not gonna hold myself to it. I've still got quite a few changes to make and a whole act to finish up first.

    Oooh, nice. I may just release the current version of hack, which features water added to quite a few zones.

    Hello.

    I am now an official judge for this contest. I have some okay, good and bad news. The okay news is that we will be judging right away. The bad news is that we don't have all the hacks because either the links were broken or Samantha didn't give Mustapha the hacks before she left. The good news though is that we would like everyone who sent in a hack to resent there latest playable version.

    You can post it in the topic, or you can send it to either Mustapha or me (preferably both). If you didn't send in a hack, and send one in now, we won't be judging it.

    Once again, sorry for this taking so long.

    K, I don't really have an update to the hack that I DID submit, but would it be possible to trade that hack(a sonic advance hack) out for my main hack(StH:DX)? It's probably a stupid question, but I thought I'd ask anyways.

    Well I'll ask Mustapha and PM you what he says. I would also like what other people think on this too.

    -EDIT- Just asked and he said yes. Now Super, you may also change out your S3K hack For Sonic Uno if you want.
