    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:

    Thanks a lot Dev-FR! Also, the more people aware of the bounty the better. If you're in a position of authority at a relevant website please help pass on the news! Thanks [​IMG]

    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]

    Keep spreading the word. I hope to see some cool homebrew projects.

    That's pretty awesome. If I had a credit card, I'd definitely donate a couple of dollars every month.
    [​IMG] It adds up.

    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
