Sorry to go off-topic, but this goes to my friend Danielas:
In a forum where people communicate solely by text I think spelling is important to bring a message across. When face to face with someone, you have body language and facial expressions to make your point clear, when on the phone you can use intonation in your voice, but on a forum the only way you can make anything clear is via text.

I think constant incorrect spelling is the forum equivalent of an uninterested attitude, even if it's not meant that way or if you're not like that at all. It just gives off the idea that you're not willing to put any time into what you want to say but just quickly type something down, hit submit, and go on with things. I understand spelling can be hard for some people, namely people who don't speak English as their first language, or dyslexic people or those with learning disabilities, and it can be frustrating, but if you at least show that you're willing to make an effort to spell correctly, even if you have to read your post over five times, that would make a much better impression on people and you'll find everyone is more tolerant about a few spelling mistakes.

I hope you don't take this the wrong way, you're an OK dude, and I don't mean to come across like I'm trying to just tell you what you're doing wrong, it's not my place to do that. I'm just letting you know how it can come across, so you can pay attention to that, I hope you use it to your advantage :)

Alright, people, the moment you've all been waiting for has arrived! After much deliberation and soul-searching, I have selected this year's winners. This year was particularly difficult. There were over a hundred entries and the skill level sky-rocketed! I wish I had 30 prizes to give away, because there were about thirty entries that deserve an honorable mention. It was difficult to trim down the entries to the top ten. It was nearly impossible to pick three out of those ten. :)

But, without further ado...the Winners!

1st place:
Rocko's Goblin Attack

2nd place:
Weasel47's Family Reunion
Image

3rd place:
Olog's Stone Golem Attack!

Congratulations to the winners! Thank you to everyone who entered. It was a pleasure to see these great MOCs come flowing in.

Build On!
Josh

PS. I need the winners to PM me their addresses so that I can prepare the prizes for mailing...

Congratulations to the winners. I'm disappointed I did not place, but I happily concede to such masterfully built entries.

That was fast, well done, Josh! (and all entrants of course ;))

I was hoping for Family Reunion but Rocko's was extremely well done as well. Congrats!

Huzzah for Josh, and Huzzah for the winners! (and huzzah for all who entered!) Super-fast turn-around time Josh, I'm sure everyone really appreciates it! Great picks, I'm sure it was very hard to narrow them down.

I kinda had a feeling Rocko would place, congrats on the first place!

Super work everyone, it was fantastic to see all the entries, hopefully I have time to enter next year! (?)
