I didn't win either, but I did get a special mention with something like 5th place or thereabouts...

Well, you beat ME, so you should be happy =)

CL: I think maybe a bonus could be implemented, say cut the price by an exponential number based on the number of days (including fractions)  left to the end of the contest from the time the bridge is submitted. If not, all the "heavyweights" on the board wont see any reason not to wait till the last minute to submit

Sorry if i missed it, but as far as I could tell, there was NOWHERE specified what the objective of the contest is!!

Now im not stupid so i *guess* it is to make the bridge as cheap as possible. But some confirmation of this would be nice.

I would also like the contest to be to make the bridge as *beautiful* as possible ( we do a vote on the bridges after the deadline), or to make it as much earthquake proof as possible.

Can someone officially confirm that the contest is about making the bridge as cheap as possible?

hmm, falkon, imagine somebody isn't able to download the contest bridge before the 25th, then he wouldn't be able to win a prize. do you think that's fair ? Nobody says you have to send your bridge when you completed it, maybe you even want to take a second look and find a cheaper solution ?

Regarding the settling period:  We will wait until we feel the bridge is "settled" before we test the bridge.  We do not want to specify an exact time, nor do we feel like we should.  Our point is that we don't want bridges that only work under certain conditions (TT'ability being one of them),   we want bridges that, once settled, will always work.  
Thanks for that, much clearer.
The reason we said we'd wait a few seconds, is that we have yet to see a bridge that takes more than that to settle, but in the event we do, we'll give it the time it needs.
I guess you're not sitting in front of a PII/300 then ':D'

Hmm... you mean, you didnt work on Sunday? What a concept ;)

BTW: Contest rule 6 asks a password.
Do you mean the password I use for the forum or the password I got via mail at registration time?

Calis, I like your alternate contest concept and I really hope to see BOTH kinds of contests take place here in the future.
taffer, very good point! Though I do think they mean as cheap as possible, it could be CL didn't state that on purpose... How about commenting on this, CL??
