Its been an outstanding year. There were high quality submissions in all categories.
I have the ratings recorded and I’ll go through and tally up the averages. I’ll have the results posted tomorrow.

Firstly, and as always, thank you for all the support in the contest. In terms of both donations and submissions we have had a wonderful year. There are a number of contenders for each category and the competition should be a good one.
Its very important for everyone to get out there and review all the submissions and throw down a rating. The more ratings we have the more accurate the scores will be. I will be sure to nag everyone on the site throughout the week.
Ratings that are counted in the contest will be open until 5/11. The week long period will help ensure we get a decent number of reviews.
Also, like in years past I’ll be keeping an eye on reviews that give very high ratings to only one submission in the contest. This generally happens when a screenshot is posted on DevArt or something similar and the author asks visitors to come to PF and drop 100’s on their submission. While its wonderful to have visitors come in and participate, its not fair to the other contestants if visitors rate only one entry highly and then leave.
So you’re encouraged to to promote your entries, but please ask reviewers to rate other entries as well.
Thanks and good luck!

Get those submissions in – the deadline is the end of today!

Just your friendly reminder that we have 1 week left before the SSC deadline on 5/5. Get those submissions in!

The prize pot for SSC 13 is currently at $130.
We have very generous donations from:
plus the $50 I put in.
Submissions are starting to pour in already with a couple that I think will be contenders.
I think we’ll have voting open the entire week after the deadline (5/5), so voting will be open until 5/11. During the weekend I’ll tally up the numbers and present the winners.
A word about voting: its very important that everyone get out there and vote. The more ratings we have per submission the more accurate the process will be.
Also, you can promote your submissions outside of PF of course, but if you’re going to be soliciting votes for your own submission, please ask that the voters vote on the other submissions as well. It wouldn’t be fair if there’s a bunch of people who sign up to the site, vote 100’s on one submission and then leave. We’re not looking for a popularity contest.
Best of luck!

OK here’s what I’ve decided on the rules for this year’s contest.
Prize money and kudos will be given out to the highest scoring submission in each category excluding the Mockup category (if you want money and kudos prove that concept).
The due date will be 5/5/2013. I’m not going to sit around and workout all the timezones but don’t submit it 24 hours late and expect it to be included.
I’ll create a new categories on the site for each of this year’s categories. In order to enter the contest, please submit to one of the new categories and include “SSC” in your submission’s title.
If anyone would like to donate some monies to the prize fund that would be super awesome. You can Paypal the money to my account (joshua DOT klina AT gmail DOT com). I’ll tally up all the donations and list them in a Thank You announcement. Bubba thanks you also.
Post comments, questions, errors, etc here. Good luck folks and thank you for keeping the tradition alive :-D

Getting into 2.0, figuring out some features and workflows. What are your biggest frustrations with the current iteration of pixelfuckers?
Feature-wise, what would you most like to see? Practically and totally off the wall.
I’d personally like a better browse system, obviously, maybe allowing filtering by multiple variables (screenshots by neiio), and some sort of user metrics.

Guys, PF needs more love.
Firstly, I need to apologize for completely fizzling out the first time around. I think that happened because I couldn’t find the energy like I used to to do all the front-end and backend stuffs.
I want to give this another try, but I’m going to need some help. Particularly on the front-end design and front-end development. I’ve let any artistic skill I’ve had atrophy so its more difficult for me to come up with concepts and ideas as to what an ideal interface for the site should be. The good news is that this is a site for UI folks and there’s a lot of you that are sharp.
If you folks are interested in getting on board, please find me in our IRC room. I think it would be a great way to learn some WebDev and I certainly don’t mind helping you get started. We’ll be using Ruby, HTML, CSS/SASS, JS/CoffeeScript for our stack.
My goal for tonight is to get a skeleton app going and up on github by the end of the night. This way we have something tangible we can play with.
Other then the application side of things, there’s been some ideas to change the name of the site to something a little more public friendly. This is also something I want to discuss.
Thanks for bearing with me folks, and I’m looking forward to getting PF2 out the door.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.
Anyone participating let’s see some pics!
