Once you have been assigned to a group, at the start of each round your group will be randomly assigned a category to build in. For the most part the categories will be open-ended, to allow for differing interpretations and maximum creativity.
You WILL NOT ask the admins for clarification, or whether you can do such-and-such. If the category seems particularly odd or confusing, you may discuss it with your fellow group members and come to a consensus that way. Getting an idea of what your groupmates think and expect, and letting them know what you think and expect, may be helpful -- after all, they'll be judging your build, and you will be judging theirs.
You don't need to mention the contest or category in your entry -- the link to it in the group thread will be enough for your groupmates to find and judge it -- but you are certainly welcome to. In fact, for certain builds, it might be a good idea to explain how and why your MOC applies to its category. Bear in mind that if it is not obvious, and no one gets it unless you spell it out for them, it is probably not going to be a high-scoring entry.
To be valid, a link to your MOC must be posted in the conversation thread designated for your group's entries by that round's deadline. Failure to do so will result in immediate disqualification! Deadlines will be on Sundays, 11:59 pm, MOCpages time (that's the United States Eastern Time Zone -- make sure you know how many hours ahead or behind you are and make proper allowances). Permalink
