Re: proof that jemcontes winner cheated.

Thanks dude, but let's not overkill this, Ibanez is already on the job. At this point though, it's hard to say that he's innocent.

Sh*t could get real. lol

To be fair it's fractal, so a computer might have generated it.
Let the computer decide!

Re: proof that jemcontes winner cheated.

Yeah, it's obvious he cheated, and I'm glad you're trying to bring it to Ibanez's attention

But.... they already know. Still, glad you found the original source so now we can put this guy in hot water.

The source doesn't matter as it has been so altered it is not the source anymore. He may have taken the EASY rout, but there was nothing in the rules that said he had to slave over anything for hours, or minutes.....

Re: proof that jemcontes winner cheated.

Yeah, there was, considering the content had to be original, not something that was copy/pasted from a wallpaper site and further fracted to look more like a swirl design.

It specifically was in the rules. Then again, the rules don't seem to matter to the guys who set them. PLUS, the original source was found.

I mean, a mosaic is one thing, but this is absurd.
