A big thanks to all 12 communities who have put forward fantastic bids. You've spoiled us with great work in earlier contests; but this time you really blew our mind.
On the World Cup topic we also would like to announce that we have improved the match fixtures for Round I of the World Cup. Thanks to all users in the NT community who have been part of the discussions around this, and a special thanks to Jestar (the manager who suggested the revised schedule).
