Not being a participant I should not care, but waiting this long for results would have p....... should I have participated. There is no excuse for tardiness IMHO.

Dear Members, Readers, and Entrants,

AoB has experienced some technical difficulties over the last week, in which the forum was down and some content was lost. Please be assured that we are working together to bring everything back together. The announcement of the winners for the AoB Awards will come as soon as we are able to do so.


Thank you for your support.

What a bummer! Reminds me of the old saying: "If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all"

Thanks Robert,

Paul has been working overtime to correct the problems here and he has got us on a new server with a new update to the forum software. The whole editorial staff has come together (just like the old days) and are making this difficult transition possible.


Without the team, we may not exist now, they deserve all the credit.

Congratulations to you and the team, it must have been even more frustrating for you than it was for us.

Best wishes.

I don't believe a date was set for the results to be published so they are not tardy. I'd be willing to bet a doughnut that international considerations and language barriers are slowing down the judging. Now with the server problem, of all things a bonsai artist should appreciate - patience.

Hi Will

Just curious to know what the progress is on the results. Don't mean to be pushy as i understand the entire issue.

The last judge now has the materials he needs to continue his scoring, as we have restored most of the corrupted photo entries. We are currently working to restore the remaining entries.

Meanwhile, we have launched some excellent galleries, profiles, and articles, please enjoy these wonderful pieces while we push this contest to a close.


Thank you all for your Patience and understanding,

"Bonsai people have patience"
Wrong! Another myth exposed!
We only have patience when doing something we LOVE.
Now post those damn results!

The site sure is quiet. I hope there's a fix in the works.
