I really appreciate the effort and I think having a picture collection is wonderful, but even my core i7-860 PC is coping with all the pictures in this thread. Could you please properly resize the pictures (rather than using imgpix) for the coming months? Thanks.

You made a mistake: Traiphum's Master Axis Skewb

I don't want to vote though, because I like SO much puzzles this month, including my Combo CurFaTRhoDo, hense making voting unfair or whatever.

Anyways look at this month!!
17x17x17
Master Pentultimate, smoother than any other 3D printed puzzle, same for royal skewb, Master Hexamate (matter of taste ^^) HOW can I choose??

:D

I can't find anything about it in the January 2011 thread, but are we continuing last year's rule of not voting twice for the same builder? :D

I don't think it's a definite rule yet, I was just asking if we were carrying it over to this year (Rentlix did it last year but isn't this year so we might have different rules). :D

Do you mean it's not coping well? My i7 is fine with 'em, and even my netbook loads it pretty quickly (on Opera at least, IE is probably a different story).
If you mean to download each picture, edit it to the proper size, and upload again, I seriously doubt I have the time. Currently, all I have to do is copy-paste a few things into pre-prepared code as they show up, and this alone takes a fair amount of time. I might be able to find a way, but I doubt it.
If anyone would care to take over and do that, they would be welcome to.

Bronze: Triaphumn's Praxis cube

All very nice puzzles, but I simply HAD to give it to the 17x17x17. Best puzzle of the year 100% unless Oskar makes something even bigger :shock:

I also liked: Cubic Hexamate, HeP Minx I and III, coffin skewb, and Curviminx.
