Thanks for all the kind words guys!
It was super fun to run and was great seeing everyone's maps take shape, it was also great to see participants giving other participants really decent feedback. - great job!
Im glad you all seem to have liked the idea of the mini site, it was a little extra work to pull off but seems to have been worth it. I think im getting better with putting sites together so expect the next one to be even better
I have quite a few ideas for future competitions so stay tuned, just need to sort out some new prizes!
The only downside of the whole thing was that I couldn't enter the competition myself.
But im working on a level myself at the moment which ill hopefully get around to revealing soon.
I should also say huge thanks to Blink for his support and putting up with some of my noob moments, and just in case anyone from Valve is reading this, Thanks for the awesome prizes!
I'm curious about the judging tho:http://www.interlopers.net/theforgotten ... rizes.html
After the contest concludes a poll will run to allow the community to determine the top five map submissions.
From these final five I will then choose a final three and decide which will be first, second, and third.
I haven't forgotten however that was written in anticipation of there being slightly more final submissions, I guess I was over optimistic
But as there are only 7 entries I am planning to go over all of them myself and write up some feedback and critique for each.
However if people really want a poll to determine the final 5 out of the 7 then I will happily make one.
