  • This is the first contest where posts were properly placed in the contest thread by the entrants.
  • It is revealed in this post that, at the time, the only people allowed to host an LDC were Niklaw (Demonik), Superyoshi (Suyo), and Runouw R L.
  • This contest also started the age-old tradition of complaining about how long judging was taking... for at least 3 pages...
