Good, that fits in with needing to have a two week voting period. So the 
shortest time span will probably a four week minimum.

Oh no! Second challenge is CSG? Since going to Blender for most things, I think
my Pov skills have gotten a little rusty. I hope to dazzle this round, hehe.

Hmmm.
Can't seem to log in.

The links for viewing the results and entries don't seem to work right when
you're not logged in.  I even get another entry that I didn't see when
voting....

I think the website might need some testing.

Would you check again. The developer was working on it last night.

I think Lanuhum's alternative version of the exporter does support CSG. :-P

And here's one I prepared earlier. :-P


Not a bad example of CSG. :-)

OK,
Log-in works now.

View All Entrants still gives vastly different results between "guest" and
"logged - in".  Final scores only lists 2 entrants in either mode.

I don't see what you describe.
Can you give a step by step path?
Thanks

As guest, you see the entrants' overview for each current Challenge in 
exactly the same way. The only difference is with Challenge 2 when you 
select an image and it brings you first to the image info page where a 
thumbnail enables you to view it. This is *not* the case with Challenge 1.

As logged in, you see only *your own* entries, either for Challenge 1 or 
for Challenge 2. That is not different from the old site version.

I do not understand your comment on final scores however.
