Kursed, from what I've seen of your builds they looked really good. Don't take what anyone says about them personally. I think that if you keep up the good work and work really hard at getting builder you will be able to get it very soon.
I'm enjoying not spending my entire day building for now, though.
If I finally stop procrastinating and start actually doing my homework like I've been telling myself to do, then maybe I'll take another shot at building.
Until then, I'll stick with the forum and IRC.
