    Here's the full voting results:


    Congratulations to the Winners!




    FYI:
    The Cafe Administration team has received comments from several members regarding the recent vote. In the month of December several new members joined the Cafe, voted and significantly altered the results. While no one can read minds and determine their intent the circumstances bring into question the legitimacy of the competition. As you all know the Cafe has a reputation for integrity and occasionally is publicly taken to task for being 'too polite.' The circumstances suggest the spirit of the competition, and the Cafe were circumvented for advantage. Since the integrity of the challenge had been put into question measures were taken to restore the intended voting process.

    To the winners, CoNgAtUlAtIoNs! This was a fun challenge and the photos were all terrific to see.

    Staceylynn, Please hang around, as I really dig your photos.

    What's the format for 2010?

    -Wowz
     
  6. I'm not going anywhere - and I also congratulate the winners. There were just some misunderstandings and this turned into more of a drama llama than fun, sadly.
     
  7. Congratulations to the winners and everyone that participated - Happy New Year!
     
  8. I am glad I entered the challenge. While I got only one vote I am proud of that. I will be entering more challenges when I can. Just have to try harder to up the quality of my photography to compete with all the awesome talent on the cafe. I feel that all members should be able to enter the challenges.
     
  9. To be honest, I was surprised that the better of my two entries to receive votes got as many as they did, considering the quality of the other work submitted. A big thank you to those of you who found my photos worthy of the votes you gave them. :cool: 
     
  10. FYI:

    This Thread is about the winners!
