Weighted score of Diwali contest

Here is the weighted score of the rangoli results. It doesn't change the outcome of the winning entry, although there are some changes in the placements, according to the votes received. The top entries in both the lists are more or less the same. And we must add that the weighted score can get skewed too. It all depends on how you slice and dice it. Smile

Rangoli contest - names of participants

Here are the names of the participants. We've marked a few of the submissions as "maybe" because we're not sure if these are for the contests. We're still waiting for the confirmation from some of our potential participants. Please contact us if you are a participant, and you don't see your name here, and upload (or re-upload) your image.

Server issues

This is the time of the year when the iKolam server comes under severe stress. Some members have emailed me personally and some have posted online about connection issues. Some received "Access denied" messages for certain pages. To alleviate the situation, we have disabled certain provisions of the server (like Account/Track, which burdens the server quite a bit). Hopefully this should enable us to get through this season.
