This is frustrating to say the least. I posted the results in the interest of showing folks some of the work currently being done in Blender. There is a bit of a stigma (much of it earned, I know) against Blender and its users currently, and I thought that sharing a gallery of some decent completed work might help change that opinion somewhat. If we can't even link to contests or galleries in the general area, this essentially disallows any communication between communities.
The most frustrating part is that I don't believe it would've been moved if it it were a contest for any other software covered on this board. I understand that Blender advocates can often go overboard, and there's been an excess of Blender related (really inconsequential) news recently, but this move gives the impression that Blender and its users are simply unwanted, and I'd hoped that the environment around here might be a little more welcoming than that.
Instead, Blender is being sequestered away in its own little forum. Most sadly, moving the thread prevents the contestants from getting the exposure they rightly deserve, regardless of what tools they used to produce their work.
I'm sorry if this has come off as a rant, but I'm really very disappointed in the way this was handled, and it's dealt a tremendous blow in my interest in participating around here at all.
