    Cool :).

    Before you release the themes guys, Post them on your website with a link here so I can use it maybe heh :)

  3. Alex, how do you feel about picking a winner? I mean no disrespect to the past entrants in the Style Contest, but this Theme Competition is loaded with a ton of themes which, IMO, all deserve some sort of prize.

    Are you offering to sponsor a prize for each entrant? :)

    I think the issue of how a winner is chosen, no matter what category they win in, is a worth discussion...but best done after Mr. Contest "King" has time to find his life again after this whizbang contest.

    I'd love to hear from those who judged, looked, and debated over who should win. DO NOT DO IT NOW, but I think it would be interesting. I'd hate it to be come a "I think X should of won" but more a look behind the scenes at what the judges were looking for and how they made their decisions.

    BUT LATER, okay. Let the poor soul recover some. And pity the poor judges having to make the decisions. Yikes. There are some awesome entries.

    Last time there was some ugliness from a few individuals regarding the judging, so this time I'm not even releasing the names of the judges. Sorry, I wish it didn't have to be this way.

  8. Don't worry Alex, that is totally understandable.

    Will you update the themes one last time before judging? At least for my theme, I corrected a lot of IE compatibility issues.

    ...this time I'm not even releasing the names of the judges
    And there goes my master plan of buying off the judges:-) Oh well, looks like I have to find some other use for this suitcase of money...

    Alex, I'd just like to say "thanks". This is a great thing for the community as a whole. And the "theme browser" makes life SOOOO simple!

    Great job all around!

    There are some really great themes in this competition, gotta say.

    And,(no offense to the earlier entrants) the themes kept getting better and better as time passed.

    Prissed, I agree wholeheartedly. And as I posted at the Theme Blog, there are NO losers, everyone wins; the designers who got a chance to strut their stuff and give back to the WP community and the WP users whose heads will surely be spinning what with the dizzying array of wonderful themes to choose from.

    My contributions can be found on this testbed and thankfully, Midnight Pacific Time means an extra two hours past midnight here to work on possibly some more!

    Later!

    I've started processing the themes that came in yesterday, about 40 new ones and 30 updates - hope to have them all up this weekend.

    It takes time to review each theme and fix the bugs before posting. :)
