I understand the feelings that some contest take a long time to be judged, however, I've learned to be grateful for the long contest periods some have allowing you the time to create and enter into more contests. If more people enter, it makes sense that the judging will take a few days. It was frustrating to me when many of the contests started around the same time and all ended within 5 to 7 days. Now the timeframes vary allowing those of us with not a lot of time to devote to Urstyle more opportunities to enter different contest.
Also there is the issues of unpredictability of the website working properly. Clipper can be down for days or the website may not be working properly allowing you to create and submit a set within a short timeframe for a contest. This is a continuous issue. I got the 503 service error this morning and couldn't access the site.
