This looks like an advert for a contest rather than an article about an existing one. 84.70.132.186 19:11, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

Possible Extensions[edit]

If anyone has time (I may try sometime later on) the possible extensions for this document are: competition controversy, reasons for the competition. Maybe list of exploits used in previous contests. Anything else? Nachmore 03:32, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Abandoned?[edit]

There have been no updates since 2009's contest rules, and no winners have been announced since it ended a year ago. Should it be mentioned that it's been abandoned? That's no way to run a contest with a prize. 72.48.75.131 (talk) 03:24, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

xcott.com site is down[edit]

Is there any information regarding the site that the contest is announced? Xcott.com is apparently taken over by a cybersquatter. Is there a new site? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.9.13.137 (talk) 15:37, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Site is back up now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.9.13.137 (talk) 15:18, 19 June 2013 (UTC)
