Congratulations to all of our winners! Note that our top three prizes in each category were awarded by our Mighty Panel of Celebrity Judges. Each judge nominated a first, second, and third place winner from the entries that our expert commentators identified as "best." Those nominations were compiled, and in the event of a tie the earliest entry was deemed winner (that didn't happen, actually). I'm mildly surprised that our community voting identified the same top scripters in each track - the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-place award process didn't factor in the CrowdScore at all.

  1. Congratulations to the winners of event 1. I'm looking forward to testing some more of event 2 once i'm back in work tomorrow, i threw up a quick 2K Pro VM on the HyperV cluster to do a proper test.

    Don, the leaderboard currently lists email usernames in their full glory. I'm sure it's a quick one to sort out.
