So... who won?!?

Does anybody wonder..."who won the dxContent mini/module map contest"?

Well, lets say everybody won.  I mean after all, Map Runner got used, some bugs were found and squished and a few tweaks were made and so now the tool is better off.. and a better tool means less stress on the DM... and... less stress on the DM means... um... more effective games by the DM.  Yes, so players and DMs alike are all winners!

OK, ok enough spin. 

The reality is nobody entered the contest.  While it was just 3000 words and a simple map the prizes were...  what's the word I'm looking for... cheap?  I knew going in the contest might not garner much interest... but my big goal was to get Map Runner exposed, get some people using it and get some more people to create dxContent accounts. And on a small scale that's what happened. We are up to 75ish registered users (we started at around 60 before the contest).

So what's next?  Well, I'm off for a week of camping in the woods.  I should have a lot of time to think about what is next, and what can be improved.

Have a [PositiveDescriptor] week.
