Because it needs to be said.

I realize the amount of work it takes to do something like this and I also remember the call from the community months ago to have a contest for LW artists.

So this shows you listen to us and I think in this instance you did an outstanding job and the contest was a real hit. I love how you laid out the website and the fact that you really gave the winner his moment. That shows some class.

It also has to be said that these things cost money. It takes resources to do what was done and I for one appreciate it. It really shows that it can be a win win. You give something back to us and we can contribute.

I am sure I am not alone in this appreciation. I hope that we will have more of these and that you will continue to have such great entries and winners and enjoy more success.

Cheers to all the NewTek staff and I hope Siggraph was a success as well!

Thanks! And I wait for another next year!

I agree. I work in a marketing department and know how hard it is for an overworked, understaffed team to pull resources off the "necessary" stuff and do some "fun" community building stuff.

I hope the directors and VP's realize that connecting with a very vocal community is just as important as the "necessary" work.

Good job and thanks.

If it wasn't for the contest I wouldn't have gotten off my butt and actually (almost) finished anything! It's really pushed me to get my act together and work! The prizes were great, not that I expected to win, but that wasn't the whole point. I finished something and sent it in! Cool.
