Take your time, and get well soon. You're doing a great job 
keeping this all running, and communicating about it.


Ah, the pages are back online! Still some things to sort 
out, i guess (topic isn't yet showing at 
http://www.tc-rtc.co.uk/display/animation.html etc.)

Yeah, the voting/commenting really needs a bit more 
fine-tuning, at least a secondary timeframe from deadline to 
maybe a week later - i tried voting, and what do i get? 
Totally disappeared from the tabulated list ... ah, the joys 
of betatesting  :)

Well, at least i can report that voting works, not giving 
points to one's own entry works, and commenting works, too :)

However, for a vote to "work out" (this includes the math of 
adding the results), i suggest that either we need the panel 
judges approach back, and at least require all entrants to 
vote or none at all, for the vote to be valid. Otherwise, 
those that do vote get a penalty over those that do not vote 
(on average by 100 % * voting entrants / number of entrants, 
or something ;) because by voting one boosts all other 
entries except one's own - which is OK, if everyone in the 
current round does it.

I hope that description does make sense...?
