Late entrants are allowed. Sign up in the sign up thread and one of the judges will assign you a category in the round one thread (it will be an edited entry so you'll have to REALLY look for it. Most likely Yuri's first entry). Be sure you READ ALL THE RULES. We've had a lot of problems with people not following rules... don't be one of em. Good luck.

You are now in, since you added the required link. And you're in the "I'm Late!" category. Check out all the rules before building and most importantly double-check them when you post.

Am I correct in assuming you have an active internet connection?
One that could allow you to easily access a search engine in case, let's say, you don't know the meaning of a word or a figure of speech?
You did join a LEGO contest, didn't you?
At least it's what it looks like to me, since you went the trouble to sign in and read the rules...
So just what do you expect is left to do? Origami? Masonry? Open heart surgey? Spray-painting a Cocker Spaniel?

I just dont get the lego creation subject.

From the Round 1 rules (which you said you read)

"For this round, we are using "open" categories, giving you a very loose concept that you can meet in any way you choose.
Being this the case, you can see how questions about categories will be dismissed with a short burst of laughter."

okay, here I go. I have a question and it doesn't involve a salami.

I have very slow internet, and therefor uploading a MOC takes a while, sometimes a few times too. Just for safety, I wrote "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" on my new page while adding pics and text and links. does that save me from a hasty judge?

I'm asking this because Brandon Buckingham kinda got into trouble with his entry, and I haven't seen his MOColympics window on his page yet...Maybe he hadn't finished uploading yet.

Judges?

Good question, but no. Once you post the link in the R1 thread, it is fair game. He did not have the link, I DQed him, he added the link, and it did not work...still a DQ. Be careful loading, make sure your page looks right BEFORE you add it to the R1 thread. Hope that helps.

As a matter of fact, the "Official Entries" thread is a new element introduced JUST for this reason: to give people one extra chance to edit and double-check their entries before official judging takes place.
(It also gives us judges an easy index of the entries)

Simple question which has probably been answered a thousand times. But. . .the rules state 64 will move on. Does it matter if you win your category or not?

For the first round, it's the top 64 that moves on. Afterwards, it is fashioned like the NCAA b-ball tournament - single elimination. 64 dwindles to 32 then 16 then 8 then 4 then 2 then champion. (boy, did I just violated every grammar rule in that last sentence)

Yes, you did just violated ;-). And if it was like an NCAA tourney, it'd be seeded, with my alma matter getting the shaft and pwning the rest of the country anyway. This is more like a beer pong tournament.
