Sad, but expected news somehow. If one could convince the Dev to allow bots for
the TC-RTC-site the archiving would be no problem. In this case the site would
be archived by the internet archive automatically, but is visible to Google too,
a trade off.

@Normand: Yes, it cannot be assured that every entrant will have his images at
the new site. But it would be convenient, to give you a general permission to
copy the data to your site. I would like to do so, to save the time to upload
all my poor content again.

And last: if a new site will be created, the voting system should be questioned.
E.g. since all software is allowed, the technical voting makes no sense to me.
An effect you can create with Blender at ease may be a real challenge with POV
(e.g. particle systems in this special comparison).

Best regards,
