You and Coco don't even know how much time i spent thinking about of what this project should become. I had a lot of doubts and a lot of answers to find for my questions. So if there's someone frustrated, that's probably me. And you what? I'm fine with that, because that's what i wanted from the start, building something related to Inkscape.

The Gallery idea wasn't even on my mind at the beginning. It came later. Another rule broken.

We are talking about me.

When Spaventapasseri told me this i was surprised. Can you please send me a copy of the message where i say this? I'm sure that i talked about the doubts i had, but saying that the project was cancelled.. You know very well that, often, my English, doesn't really allow me to express my thoughts as i would. Are you sure it wasn't a misunderstanding?

I remember i told you to not worry about this. If you didn't finish in time, there would always be the chance to be part of the next year challenge.

Did i asked for your permission? Yes. Why would i didn't the same with the others?

I think that voting on this gallery of images which were NOT submitted as part of the contest (as far as I know) is inappropriate, if it is to take the place of the originally announced contest! If it is a new or different contest, it should be announced as such, in my opinion.
There are only nine drawings, and it's the first year. Why don't give a chance to anyone to be part of a challenge poll? They were already there. Is it that important for you that only the four from the "realism challenge" take part of it?
Honestly, i never meant to be dishonest or unfair, nor i wanted to break down anyone for their skills. I may have my faults, but all i wanted to do was building a project where i could collaborate with people like me, interested on Inkscape and graphic design.
Because collaboration is the keyword. Without it, you don't build something good in a day. Sending a drawing isn't collaborating.
And that's what i wanted from Rents, collaborate with him. I didn't receive any reply from him.
Is he upset? Did he really care about the project? Was the drawing finished? Why did he submitted that late? I don't know, I'm still waiting an answer. I just postponed his participation because i wanted to talk with him.Is this that bad for you?
Brynn, you're saying that I'm ignoring those artist, but that's not true. Feel free to be or not be part of it. It's easy, just tell.
