    What's more, these 50 dollars will be offered to the first runner-up
    , which means homebrew authors have two chances of winning a prize! Many thanks to the Dev-FR team for joining the project and rewarding homebrew authors! They will be entitled to 5 votes every month.
    Speaking of votes and judges, we on GBAtemp have finally completed our list of judges for this month. Our 10 judges will be:We have also decided to start gathering a list of websites who regularly relay Homebrew Bounty news. Our current partner sites are:
    HomebrewWelt.com ([​IMG]) - Radio Ninty ([​IMG]) If you wish for your website to appear in this list, contact me by PM.

    Last but not least, I am extremely satisfied to announce that, within a little less than two weeks, we have received over $200 worth of donations! Huge thanks to all 17 donators - the list of donators will be published at the end of the month. Donators who sent $10 or more will receive an e-mail containing details on how and when to vote.

    I visit dev-fr quite a lot (although only as a bandwidth sucking leech) and I am happy they are onboard.

    This homebrew bounty is really starting to take off. There've been a lot more donations then I thought there'd be! [​IMG]

    That's pretty awesome. If I had a credit card, I'd definitely donate a couple of dollars every month.

    Google'd "Urza" to see what I could find and it turns out that's the name of a Magic: The Gathering set ): that strategy didn't work
