I'll turn sideways and congratulate Jim on his status at the top of the stairs. Thank you, Trumper, for making this very difficult decision.  :p

Thanks, Trumper for hosting our last G-Series Challenge. It is my distinct honor to share with OhLook the podium top spot! :-)

Now on to the new and greatly expanded Small Camera Challenge. :-P

Good idea to end this one in a draw, Trumper.:-)

The "G-series" has had long run and was lots of fun, but its time was up. RIP.

I am sure starting the merged challenges is a step forward.

I started a thread in the Canon G-series Digital Cameras and made it a Sticky:

POTN G-series Speed Challenges - Links and WINNERS LIST - Years 1 to 14

It has the WINNERS LIST and the links to every G-series challenge from #001 to #711
It is free of discussions, outdated rules etc.
Hope it will be usefull for those re-visiting the old challenges.

Rafael, I don’t know how to get the Sticky title to be bold face like yours. Mine is just regular type.

I'm confused... Do you mean here?:

The titles there are bold as long as the threads have unread posts.
Once yo read them the tittle goes to regular type.

The links in your sticky and in the first challenge post are just fine, they are bold.

Of course right after this contest ended I run across a Sleek and Shiny object. This is in the National Art Gallery in D.C. That's me just about dead center shooting the pic.
