No, I delayed them until today because I had hoped you guys would realize that I understand that you have been waiting for them for months and months, and I have been working on them as quickly as I can, but things get in the way of that. I have been struggling a lot this year, my freshman year of high school. It has been a huge adjustment for me, and I can't say that I've handled it as well as I should have. I've had a lot more work than I did last year in 8th grade, and the material is a lot harder for me. Hell, I've had to stay up very late many, many times just to finish homework, let alone study for anything.

Anyway, I wanted to get these done as soon as possible, but it just didn't work out that way. I'm sorry I've had to make you guys wait, but I would have at least thought you would sympathize with me a bit. I mean, I am doing this all on my own. But instead of sympathy, you guys have given me impatience and insensitivity. I've been wondering for a while why I don't visit this site anymore, because I still love brickfilming (I'm even working on a film right now). I think now I know why.

I'm going to edit the results into the first post of this topic right now. Check it in about 2-3 minutes and it will probably be there.

Running contests is a generally thankless job, and if you don't live up to your promises it doesn't help.  Sorry you didn't get the memo.  mini/wink

Re: Brawl 2009 Has Ended! (Results in First Post)

Congratulated to Legoshark and everybody who enterd, you were all truly greatly.
Thank you Munzapoppa for the second BRAWL, it's a contest I hope will keep its yearly tradition, but even if you don't have much time next year, I suggest you trust the contest to someone with way more time, but still thanks for creating this special or Updated THAC.
You were late and we were jerks

Believe me, I've been trying to live up to my promises, but like I stated before, things get in the way. Admittedly, I could have gotten these done and up a lot sooner than I did, but I am disgusted at the amount of impatience that I have seen in this thread. It's not like I didn't keep people updated on how I was doing with these results.

The handful of complainers could have been nicer, I agree.  What disappointed me was that you were so quick to show even less tact than them by delaying the results even further in retribution.  Especially when the results consisted of ballots submitted to you by a group of judges, it's disrespectful to the judges and the entrants alike.  It's concerning that you don't see the problem here.

Well, the reason for that last delay was so that people would learn of my disapproval of their impatience, so hopefully they would learn to not be as impatient about the results. Obviously, that tactic did not work out well, and I'll admit that was not the best decision I could have made. But what else should I have done to try and get the complainers to stop?

Anyway, the results are out, and I don't have to worry about them anymore. That's all that really matters to me.

...You post the results.

I agree that some people were a bit harsh, but really, I think they have reason to be.  I haven't run any contests before, so I can't pretend to know what it takes, but seriously three months just seems outrageous.

Congratulations to Legoshark and everyone else, there were some great entries.

Re: Brawl 2009 Has Ended! (Results in First Post)

Woah- sweet!

Thanks everyone, especially Munzapoppa.  Huge props to Mr. Durron and Mr. 2me.   Looking forward to next time.

Muchas gracias.
