Yes, we said it would never happen, but that's because it involved a ton of work and we didn't think anyone would ever have the time or motivation to see it through. Well, someone (me) finally did... and after six months of thought, two weeks of full-time work, over 150 code-hours, and over two thousand lines of code written or changed, it has been completed.

It was a massive effort - and I really didn't feel like using two weeks during Christmas break to implement it - but it's something that everybody has wanted since forever, including me, and I figured it would be worth it. It had better be. ;)

It's in CVS and can be seen in any of the builds published since January 25.  And it'll be in 3.6.6, which we hope to release in a couple of days.

We gave the project leaders (and subsequently the hosted projects) a sneak peek at the feature so we could introduce it with a bang - hence the "Goob hates us all" comments and the allusions to the secret contest.

So, without further ado, I present the results of the Super Secret SCP Screenshot Skirmish*...

Winner, by Black Wolf...


And the runners-up...

Second place, by StratComm...


Third place, by Woomeister...


Fourth place, by Spicious...


Fifth place, by Singh...


Rankings were determined by a highly fluid and arbitrary series of criteria, available upon request.  Special thanks to Goober5000, for making this contest possible and for judging the entries; to StratComm, who was the only person to take advantage of the contest extension; and to an0n, for not giving anything away after getting access to all the internal forums. :)

*I needed a synonym for "contest" that fit with the alliteration

I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

I saw those pictures, but I couldn't make out any details on them. :p

Besides, I just took the best picture from each person.
