Didn't like the judges' decision? It's now your turn to select the winner: We have a special "People's Choice"-award! Smile

 

Your task is to read through all the build threads and vote who will get that award.

To make it a bit harder for you, there are no categories in this award! Evil

That's right. You will be voting for a single best build in the whole competition - and the winner will get an Acebeam H10 headlamp (provided by hc-lights.fi)

 
Voting starts now and ends in two weeks!

This thread needs a daily bump if it’s only on for 1 week.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Maybe some summary shots of the finished builds would be a good idea here.

Thanks, CRX! I believe you’re right. This will help people remember/decide!

Glad you agree mate, it was a mission!

This thread seems a bit glitchy – it kept canceling my vote when i was trying to post and hasn’t registered on my post count either. Also wipes out the text when trying to preview.

Yeah, it might be good for people with slower connexions etc.

Daily bump is a good idea, but you make the 1 week dl to sound a bit unfair. After all, the judges had 2 weeks..

=> Changed the duration to 2 weeks.

Please help and bump this as soon as it gets out from front page. Smile

Ps. Thanks CRX!!

At the end of every op the number of reads is listed and will give you an idea how well attended a build was. Innocent

Over 1000 reads, but only 50 votes? Really? What’s the matter with you all? You can do better than this!

thanks, it does, i wanted to go out of the box. however it is not always the best solution, but it’s ok, next year i’ll think of something either more traditional, or even more out of the box.
