I think this video perfectly describes the turn of events we had from the mid-point of the competition:

Great effort by everyone, regardless. Stay awesome, folks!

Great choice. Will it be Chrome pony?

Nah  Twilightsmile 

I'm looking to get a Lyra commission and then get it tattooed if I like it.  I do like their art style.  I went thru all their galleries on Deviantart and Derpibooru.  

As much as I would have liked that pretty RX 580 in Dashingly Blue  Rainbowwild Heart

You're in luck. It is very likely that one of the top 10 will not respond, giving you a chance. Also, after half of the prizes are gone, some people will skip on a prize and pass it along  Heart Twilightsmile

You will be getting something... Nekolepsy has already declined to receive any prizes, and the second place guy has not logged in since the 18th last month. Chances are you will end up getting 7th pick or something. In the past we have had ponies logging in like a month after the competition ended and "oh hey I won a ... oh, I was too late to respond." This is kinda sad, we want to give away the prizes to the respective ponies, but we just can't drag the prize picking phase on for months.

Here is a picture of the two plushies... had to boot my phone into the operating system I hate using (android) but it did not connect to the internet at all so I should be safe-ish.

The things around the hooves are removable, and rarity's mane+tail have wires in it so should be able to form it in other shapes. I bought a spitfire plush for myself from the same person and they donated three other plushies for competitions. I asked if she would be willing to make additional plushies for undefined future competitions and she agreed, need to find that email address though. They are rather nice.

maybe when setting the competition up, have something in the rules about that? like, if they don't pick within a day of the contest ending then they lose their chance and the next one gets their spot or w/e. timeout value subject to tweaking since idk how active/responsive this place is for stuff like this.

This was a good run and enjoyed the early stats that came up in the competition,
as well as the 50mil+ppd goal we reached, the team rank in 20th place and 8th rank on the team (for now lol).

Also congratulations to Team Anandtech to their victory and for this awesome run we had this round.

And also congratulations to all the winners in the local competition. Get your prizes while they are still hot! Ajsmug

A shame I could not fold more, that 2 week hiatus my computer chose to make upsets me slightly, but that is just how things go IRL.
I am taking a break from folding for a while but will be back. Need to save on the utilities for a bit, heh. Fluttershysad 
See you all on the forums!

PS: Where can I personally say congrats to Anandtech on their site?
