Congratulations to Jason Catena, the winner of the March 2004 How-to Contest.

See the winner and runner-ups here: ... nners.html

Nice job to all who entered! It was a tough decision that the admins faced. I hope we can have even more entries for future contests.

Jason's prize, a custom forum name, shall soon be delivered by Troy.

And.... I just realized I promised to make a How-To article with all the entries. I'll get to that at somepoint...

Hey, hey! Congratulations, Jason! I was sure that his would be the winner. I guess I'm one of the runners up; thanks! Does my name coming before Jojo's mean anything? :wink:

WOO! Thank you so much! Now I have to build a castle worthy of that drawbridge. Good thing I ordered some old grey brick and plate packs. ;)

Thanks for the worthy competition: :shock: both the runners-up were beautiful and functional, and did a great job of demonstrating the principles.

The design I used was my own combination of line drawing and text ideas from The Medieval Fortress, by Kaufmann and Jurga (Da Capo Press), which I highly recommend.

Out of curiosity: will the posts I make as "Master Gatekeeper" retain that title at the end of thirty days, or will all my posts change back to "Villien"? I would understand if the picture wasn't kept past thirty days. If not, I'll just have to be happy with my new signature. :D
