    The GekiHEN Contest deadline is approaching and time is running out to get your entries into the homebrew contest. There has been various projects submitted but some categories are a bit bare with just a few entries. While even the sections that have a good number of entries, its still is anyone's competition and we hope to see even more homebrew added to those catagories as well. The contest is winding down, lets take a look at what we have entered into the contest to this point. There is a lot of homebrew to checkout, but help developer improve their projects with some valuable feedback as developer can still provide updates for their projects.

    Note the website is back online, so you can resume submitting entries there.

      Such a great contest. While we have some pretty descent software I was hoping for more. There is wonderful things done that weren't added like O'ClockVita and Adrenaline.

      Not sure if they didn't care for the e peen which I am sure is the case for frangjarc and possibly TheFl0w. Regardless who ever wins deserves it as the system has come so far so quick with a miniscule database abusers compared to the 3DS.

      I really wish @STLcardsWS ran this as I feel it would have gotten more positive attention. Instead feels like he was left out and only involved for the cash side of the contest. These are MY THOUGHTS not Cards or Place, just let that be known.

      I think TheFl0w didn't enter it because he knew he would win with anything he entered, perhaps he didn't think that was fair.

      I am glad the competition happened, i only regret the problems it has been plagued with since since it started for example i am getting this on the GekiHEN website:

      But like i said i am grateful the competition happened, i just hope next time the CustomProtocol guys hold a competition such as this one it is better managed.

      Also STL any chance you could add a 'quote' button to the editor ?

      Its there,
      On the editor: the icon after smiley/pic/video.
      When clicked on the next one in order you should have the 4 options.
