Excellent…again, I missed some posts that were removed, but given that those who are finished were ok waiting, have not seen anything yet that wound say this is unpopular!   I am in and commit to being ready for Valentine’s Day!   Merry Christmas all!

Hey folks. It's been a while, huh?

I'd like to apologise for going AWOL on this whole contest after starting it. I won't get into too much detail, but yeah, the second half of 2021 was more or less a series of Darth Real Life sucker punches, and I've pretty much had to take an unplanned break from everything for avoiding-total-mental-health-collapse related reasons. In hindsight, there's a lot of stuff I could have done better, like communicating with people and not just falling off the edge of the world, but yeah. I didn't, and that's on me. Sorry.

Anyway. I'm glad the contest is still going ahead. I'm hoping to sneak an entry in, but it's fairly low on my list of priorities right now (that, and I can't seem to get my hands on any soundboards. it's almost like there's some worldwide pandemic screwing up global shipping, or something)

So, yeah. Good luck to everyone, and fingers crossed 2022 is less of a clusterfudge.
Better late than never.

Sorry to hear about your rough times….here to a much improved 2022!

Not sure what sound board you are looking for, but Khal has proffies available on his site, so local shipping for you…he opens back up tomorrow, or maybe by midweek.  Would be nice to have you get in one of the contests that you dream up!  I am well into my project and will be done in plenty of time for the 2/14 deadline.  Best of luck!

Seems like Greenie, Iggy and Darth Brooks are definitely in and done, or close to it.  I will be done for sure by Valentine’s Day.  I remember Space and Eastern both said they were 50% in the fall and thought they would be in if we were tended - hopefully you guys have the time now! That would be 6, same as last year- hopefully we can get a handful more (JB, thunder possibly - know you had more important things to deal with last year.)

Anyone else planning to participate?

Hoping to get the thread going as we head into a month left…and ideally encourage additional entries!   

Can we get a post from those who are in, and anyone still considering entering?   Hopefully the extra time gave some of those who couldn’t hit the original timing (space, thunder, JB?) the chance to get in. 

I am just about done but have plenty to keep tweaking.

Bump!   Radio silence is making me worry that this thing has burned out!

I was kinda thinking the same thing. I’m still ready and waiting to show. Might be just you and me Scott.

I was ready by the first deadline. Part of me figured this would die out again.

I am all set, so at least the 3 of us can do the reveal.  Maybe Space can do another saber talk!

I’m working out a way to do the anonymous videos.

Anyway, for the rest (until I get the video bit sorted out), we can do it the way we did last time. Since there aren’t many of you apparently, we can add more pictures, just be reasonable in the amount.
May the force be with you all!

The sound you hear in the background is the clock ticking…

There he is!   Anything I can do to help you out thunder?  I want to see you finish this year after the near miss last year!

Have you got any influence with the British postal service? 'Cause right now, missing/delayed parcels are about the only thing holding me back.
