Don't apologize! ;; I actually think it is my fault as the overseer. I should've done something. But oh well. I'll make sure I manage the future contests. <3; Glad to hear you won't be passing on the next ones, though! I'll make sure to advertize a bit so you guys will have more competition this time around as well. :3
Believe me, I was just as disappointed in myself. ): I didn't find Fenneking all that reliable so I went ahead and posted what I had in my own thread. I would have done another piece if the due date had been extended, but I received no notification as such. Anyway I'll definitely, definitely, definitely be participating with all caution in the future. Sorry to disappoint!
I was really disappointed to see you dropping out of the contest. I had hoped Fenneking would step in and modify the rules a bit to take your entry into consideration but you went on to post it in your gallery so I guess he won't really be doing that. But yes, really sad to see you drop out like you did. I'm a big fan so it really hurts. ;; Here's to hope you won't really be shunning any contests in the future due to this unfortunate event. :c
