Sorry for the long reply time, but work and a minor accident has kept me off the boards here...
Williamshade - yes, generally the wood plaques were reserved for 'Best in Showcase' and the like... but hopefully in years to come, we can expand our awards given at the event!
TwilightChrono - are you saying that you haven't received your reward or you haven't received 'wood'? If the latter, sorry, your award was a certificate (paper) award as we can only give so many wood plaques away each year. Hopefully we can get more for next year. If the former (not getting the award) let me know and I'll go find out what happened to it.
Moonie - yeh wood? I'll be sure to pass on your thanks to Otaku 5-0
