OK, I've been watching this, and all the comments along the way without saying anything.
This is a community project. The contest was to choose the best one to do the project with. Simple. I fail to see the big deal about a tie. Although I would have rather had a clear 'winner', if the judges cannot decide, then a tie it is. Everyone is getting upset over NOTHING.
It went past deadline ... so what? If the deadline is past, does the world end?
Have 2 community projects.
Community projects are supposed to be fun folks.
