If you need a judge, I guess I'll help out. Though if some more qualified people are willing to, I won't mind stepping down.

I'll fill in as a judge, although my activity plummeted, prepare a back up in case I fail. I would enter, but I fail at spriting. :(

I'll be Judgemagister as I don't think it would be proper for me to be to be a judge as this is the first event I have been active in

Start now. End the day before Xmas eve.

So we have Kage judging, and Xeno for tie breaker.
One more judge left.

Everyone feel free to start submitting, I'll have all the details up as soon as I recover from tonight's rather drunken food/toy drive.
It went pretty well, btw.

I've got my idea, and a few frames are already done. I could just do like 2 frames a day and finish if I wanted. Should we do previews, or would that cause a bias or something?

Right! So we have all our judges! Groovy!
