    @All: THanks for the appreciation for Chirag’s work! And he did it in least possible time with elan! πŸ™‚ THanks again, Chirag!

    @Amit: CHirag definitely deserves an award but I can’t ask him to design an award badge for himself. πŸ™‚

    @Vimal: yes, badges have undergone sea change since you last saw them. I am glad at how badges turned out. πŸ™‚

    @Ruhi: I am sure you could get that award, but I ahve somethingelse for you. πŸ™‚

    @Museditions: See my answers to Amit about Chirag’s award. πŸ™‚

    @Sulz: Yes, I too was disappointed to see that category go, but somehow there never were more than 2 nominations in that category.

  27. 30 Poonam Sharma November 5, 2008 at 12:39 pm

    @Daniel’s Critical Corner: I like your confidence. πŸ˜‰

    @Crazy Sam: It will take another week for polling to start. Judges are almost finished, it will take time for admin tasks for the same.

  28. 31 Arpit November 5, 2008 at 11:08 pm

    These badges are brilliant. I am so jealous of your creativity πŸ˜€

  33. 37 Poonam Sharma November 12, 2008 at 1:15 pm

    @Arpit: I wish I could design. I have zilch graphic design skills. But if you have some other odea of showing appreciation, do let me know. πŸ™‚

    About the boxes, you seem to think like your sister, who said the same thing. But I thought that blue face gave the badges a distinct personality. I liked them as is. πŸ™‚

    @Chirag: Polling starts end of this week. Most judgements have been done. There will be announcements shortly.

    @Ashish: YOU have a tough competition, short story category has fetched many entries. Wish ya luck! πŸ™‚

    @Vaibhav: I agree, and thanks for imparting your appreciation to Chirag. I read your recent travel posts. What a knife-carrying knave you are? πŸ˜›
