Before you take a swing at someone for being unobservant, YOU use your eyes. Even cursory inspection of the planet contest entry threads, or this one, clearly show we are talking about the never-yet-announced runners-up awards.

Again: Awen awarded the top prize, said two runners-up would be announced, then dropped the ball. The whole planet contest, as clearly shown in the history of the threads to have numerous issues, was nothing short of a fiasco that leaves me wanting nothing to do with further "fun" Cryptic contests.
Guys, I'm human. I make mistakes. I had a tech issue and I've been scrambling since then to correct the situation. I've answered privately PM queries about this issue and I'll now tell you all the same thing - The runners up will be notified privately and their forum titles will be changed.

I didn't feel that it was appropriate to make an issue out of it with a new contest in the works. I am disapointed that you would feel the need to ruin the spirit of the current contest with it.

Alas, mistakes happen, but branding our serious criticism and discouragement as "ruining the spirit of the new contest" is silly.
Perhaps organizing a new contest without resolving the problematic issues of the previous one was another mistake?
Just a thought.

It really doesn't matter. The people who were runner-up have been made aware, and life goes on.

Could have been worse. Could have been on the bridge of a Klingon Bird Of Prey and made a mistake.

Kidding aside, I do agree that some slack should be given here.
