Should we do a BOTY contest?
« on: December 06, 2022, 07:13:55 PM »
It's getting a bit late in the year and no one has mentioned it on the forum so far. Is there enough interest for a BOTY contest? We've done one for like the 8 years in a row I think. But, if people are too busy or not interested I'm fine with that. Let me know your thoughts.

What if the winner got to pick a project, or got a free pcb, or just bragging rights.

If there's a BOTY, I'll sure be here to watch!
I really enjoy scrolling through everyone's submissions.

I love the BOTY contest! 
It is a great excuse to celebrate as a community.

I was wondering about this.  I have a build in the works I'll enter if I can get it finished

I'll get it started this evening. We'll do just one prize like last year. I think it will come together okay!

Of course! I may not have done anything particularly impressive this year, but I love seeing all the crazy things others have built!
