  2. Sorry to say, but I am graphically challenged, and this competition just leaves me out in the cold. I have no real ability to compete and wouldn't even know where to start, although I would love to get one of the beta keys.

    I understand challenges like this are hard to design for everyone, perhaps next time it will be something that I can compete in.

    Yep, there's a few other forums. UOForums isn't as large as Stratics though, so I've never really bothered with it.
