Congratulations, russell_snow, for seizing the trophy; and to you, Jade-Pandora, for so worthily sharing the podium. The field was lusciously thick with virtue, everyone warming well to the genre, planting inspiration with deftness and aplomb. Thank you for helping to make this a successful venture.
Yours was the challenging yet technically plausible task, judges, in determining primacy and supremacy. Hail up to you:

Super, super, Admin, for always being ready to take the little efforts of your members and clothe them palatably for public consumption.
You had some rather encouraging and beautiful things to say, JP, which others, like myself, should find inspiring:
"...this time around, I discovered a key to open a door that gave me an answer that this time worked after I quietly rethought what I had not figured out till then." This ought to be the modus opedrandus for everyone!
