You're right about it being something awesome! It's a version of the Grateful Dead "Steal Your Face" logo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steal_Your_Face

There are lots of different versions where the traditional red, white, and blue lightning bolt design in the skull gets replaced by something else -- in the case of the one I use, a sort of yin-yang.

I promise I will sign up. I'm just waiting for my buddies to come and sign up. I'd rather play with buddies or one buddy than a bunch of YFOL stranger.

So for now I'll flap my gums, but I'm guaranteeing you I'll sign up eventually. Why do you want ME to sign up? ;)

wooo! im so ready, when's this thing gonna start?

Probably the 14th or 15th. If we think we need more time to get more people to sign up, we'll push it back a week but no later than that.

The more people we have, the more fun this thing will be, trust me. And I know everyone that's signed up doesn't want to wait any longer than they have to. So everybody tell your friends to sign up, and soon!

As I write this we have 35 brave souls signed up to play, and 50 people in the group. Accounting for the five admins leaves 10 wallflowers out there. What are you guys waiting for? Sign up!

Eyeing up the competition perhaps? Trying to find a first group that they think they have a better chance of advancing from? That looks to be a risky decision to me. I notice only a few AFOLs have signed up so far (not that we are deities or anything) and I haven't yet seen the names of some of the stellar performers from the MOColympics or your vig-orama contest (Wes excluded) so it may be a tactic that could backfire if there is a sudden influx of talented entrants.

Of course, they could just be waiting for some buddies to join up and try to tweak the scoring in round one.....

I agree. Judging from comments during vigorama I don't think this is going to be full of 'Bio-system mix' type catagories. I'm intrigued to see what we do get, especially given the comments about asking questions (don't!). We could get some really interesting interpretations.

I can absolutely guarantee there will be no Aquastlenauts, Classic Spastle, or Bio/System Mix categories. Or Star Wars, or Halo, or Town, or Steampunk, or Mecha, or anything else boring and familiar for that matter.

Advertising a group which, when I click the link out of curiosity, turns out to be private so I can't see what's going on, seems pretty asinine.

How about you just ignore the people and things on MOCpages that bother you (like Keith should have done -- I'm still mad at him for deleting himself) and worry about the stuff you can control, like your building.

Who needs Goldman when you've got me, anyway?

I guess Ocean is to holy to get social with guy's like us.

Actually Ocean is probably nicer, and certainly less of an elitist snob than I am. You just don't see him around here as much anymore because he's been swallowed by the flickr beast.

Since he posts a lot of small quick builds and tablescrap type stuff with minimal description, flickr is more conducive to his style. I generally do more involved builds that need multiple pics, and enjoy writing captions and storytelling as much as I enjoy building, so MOCpages is more conducive to my style. Long story short, you may want Ocean but you're stuck with me!
