It is a slower server to begin with.....but that being coupled with that fact that every plant head in the galaxy is hitting that thing right now.....she is dog slow.

Great! Thanks for the FYI. Maybe I'll get it together and enter the next one.

Kyle, it's draggin for me too. The site seems to be getting pummeled .

edit: And, as usual, my favorite tanks did not place. How can I possibly have a chance at such a competition when my style is counterproductive to....er...winning . How about a readers' poll to accompany the judges next year? No prizes needed.

IT may be slow but worth the wait, this has to be one of the best years for entries yet. It must have been hard to judge

GEEZ, considering the time and effort that went into some of those tanks, a lot of which are growing very difficult plants, a lot of those judge's comments are HARSH!

I wouldn't even try to enter a tank into that contest after reading some of those critiques!

It's loaded down temporarily with some folks trying to download every single Contest entry. It's an alternative to just buying a DVD with the images.

Actually there is such a thing and has been in prior years too: the popular choice award.

View any entry and at the bottom will be a button to choose/vote that entry as your choice for the best entry.
