Hi,

just in case you're not also subscribed to irtc.stills, this is what has 
  evolved over the last week:

As announced by Steven, to get voting etc. on tc-rtc.co.uk working "as 
used to be", those technical changes are most likely to happen:

1) new topics are announced on the 17th of the respective month
2) uploads are possible from the beginning of the following month.
3) uploads end on the 17th instead of the 31st/30th
4) voting on a topic is possible from 18th to 31st/30th

In short, the length remains at four months, it's just shifted by 
approx. two weeks. Uploading is possible at the earliest two weeks after 
the topics announcement (not much of a problem, i'd say).

This most likely means that your "The Mother Hive" animation better be 
ready by Dec. 17th instead of Dec. 31st...

-Markus

"Dec. 17th? <whimper>" ;)

Hi, me again,

(cue: groaning from the audience) ;)

another question: from the descriptions and message exchange 
over the last weeks, it seems the timeframes and intervals 
for voting, uploading etc. are pretty much hard-coded into 
the scripts driving the tc-rtc.co.uk. So are we going to 
have a chance at "re-commenting/re-voting" on "Black Robe" 
on the webpage at all, or is this simply not practical 
because the scripts don't support time-shifting, and should 
we talk about our opinions on the videos here on 
irtc.animations instead and label "Black Robe" as 
"Beta-testing" instead?

(in that case, could "someone" punch in 1/1/1 for my entry 
so that i at least show up on the "ranking" page? "0/0/0" 
seems to fall off the ledge somehow :)

Another idea: if, on Sept. 18th there is a "fake" stop time 
entry of Sept. 17th retro-created for "Black Robe", would 
this mean that voting/commenting would work again up to 
Sept. 31st? Or would this mess up the whole 
upload/topic/etc. system?

Markus-
I expressed how I felt in regards to your animation. I would put marks on
the board for you, but the tc-rtc web page will not give me access to the
voting page. I keep on checking.................Darin
