    Most certainly! Ptrope hosts all the entries on his domain for all to see (if you know where to look). A suggestion to @Ptrope though: would it be possible to show which of the entries won? I understand if the old ones of years gone by are almost impossible to figure out, but it shouldn't be such a big problem for the more recent years right?

    We used to post a list of links to past contests when starting a new contest. I think it has been couple years since we did this.

    I have searched Ptrope's site at least 3 times; not finding any art...

    Your powers are weak, young padawan... ;) There is no regular index, so if you just change the year and month you can browse the Art Challenge Historia!

    [EDIT] It has to been said, though, that some of the entries are missing. It's a bit of a hit-and-miss thing...

    OK, guys, I'm having problems with putting this poll together - it doesn't seem like we followed the instructions, or maybe I'm not understanding what you're trying to present. It's my understanding that each entry should be 2 images - the original design, credited to its designer/source, and a single image of your redesign. So far, I've got

    • Single finished images from Klaus and BorgMan, but no source images
    • I have an image from B.J. that has the original and redesign in 1 but no credits or a name.
    • I have an entry from Joshua Lee Peryea, but I don't know your username here, and I'm not sure which, if either, of your images is the source and which is your final, or if they're both finals - I can't go through the site you linked and pick your source image for your entry.
    • I have an entry from Lord Other , but it appears to be a final design only and no source.
    • I see here that Finn e-mailed me, but I don't see your entry.
    • Soran 77, I received several images but I can't pick your ONE final entry image.
    • I have an email from "Greenheron9" with no details.
    ========================================

    Everyone: PLEASE resubmit your entries as defined in the first post:

    Your entry will need to consist of two pieces:
    • The image which will feature your redesign;
    • The image containing your source and credit to the original artist(s).
    • In the subject of your e-mail, please include "March Challenge" and your TrekBBS user name.
    Thanks, guys. It's been a long week - I don't want to make it any longer, but I can't make sense of what you've sent me.

    ^I sent you an email with the picture attached. I just checked the sent box and it looks fine on my end.

    Just use the picture I posted for this month, I guess

    Joshua Lee is me; sorry that wasn't clear. My entry is the larger image; the big one w/3 views arrayed vertically. The other image file is one of the Original Work, which has no name on the sheets, but the page for it on Cygnus listed Shane Johnson as the artist. I have since attempted reaching him to see if that is correct; but I don't know if I have the right Shane Johnson.

    ==Re-sent from the correct email.==

    According to the system, it says Ptrope was last see April 8. Not sure what that means...

    Ptrope had been switched with his MU counterpart who's wreaking havoc in his RL
