Hi all,

Obviously, we at the TC-RTC would like to see more images uploaded to 
the bi-monthly challenges, especially coming from the POV-Ray community. 
However, we are also in dire need of more voters. A fair number of 
POVers are member of the TC-RTC. We want to remind you that, even if you 
have not participated in a challenge with you own image, you still can 
and are encouraged to vote for the shown images when voting time is 
there. Too often, only the participants vote and those are too few to 
make a truly significant score. So please, spend a little bit of your 
time to vote and give your opinion on images which the participants have 
taken time to work on and are proud to present to the public.

And participate in the challenges, if you will!


Thomas & Stephen

Unfortunatelly I could not finish my Garden-entry this round (with the Minotaur
and Theseus of course) due to RL issues. But I will post it to the p.b.i as soon
as I'm through it. The actual round (Nov/Dec 2012 with the topic Garden) has 14
entries - more than the last rounds. But only 4 from POVers, 2 from a
autodesk-user and 8 from Dr. No. with his own "homemade Java OpenGL-renderer".
So I fear the voting results will be heavily biased if not every interested
POVer with an account at TC will vote this round. So please, vote this round! If
you have no account to the TC-Contest, it is the same procedure as to other
communities, the problem with the bots arise with an account to the TC-Forum if
my brain remembers correctly (which is a bit out of order managing some 20
intervention studies in RL in only two days now concurrently).

Best regards,
Michael

Hear! Hear!

Thanks Michael. Right out of my heart.

Take care.

Thomas

P.S. You remember correctly. The bot problem arises only with the forum. 
They (at the forumup.co.uk) seem not to be able to solve this once and 
for all.
