Congrats to the winners!


I just had an idea that when someone won a challenge they get the badges added to their profile, or under their avatar. Does anyone else agree? Also, would this be possible?

Gratz guys and funky first of course.

Really great entries from all, and I think the top 3 just raised the bar for the next challenge... Brrrrrrr.

I am really glad you defended Ninja camp Legolas.

Sweet! BTW, how is the new site going? I haven’t heard any news on it in a long time.

Congrats FunkyBunnies! I thought it would come down between you and Jay, I would have never thought Jay would have gotten 3rd. Anyway, congrats for a great entry!

I also want to say, congrats to Legolas-hv for earning 2nd!
