Join to comment
Ok, the contest is ON!

rules:
(1)has to be life-size (or close to it), no minifig weapons
(2)must relate to the categories “fantasy” or “actual”
(3)Must specify the category
(4)no picture caption are necessary, but an explanation of the gun and its features would be nice
(5 )no requirements for shooting/non shooting, though a working gun would probably get more reviews.
(6)The winner is the gun with the most reviews
(7)the winners from each categories will face off (each making a gun from the opposite category), to determine the best gunsmith
(8) contest starts the 12th January and ends on the 19th (a week from today), any reviews made after this time will not be counted

The judges are:
a. Marder II
b. Kenneth Kenneth
c. Master Cheez

If you are entering just leave a post on this page once your gun is posted.


If you have any other questions check the FIRST contest rules thread for the answer, (I want to keep this page as organized as possible).


Once the deadline is up, judges will have 48 hours (2 days) to count the reviews and record them. Once the 48 hours are up, judges will compare results to determine the winner, If there are any conflicting results the gun will be re-evaluated. After all the reviews are counted the results will be posted and the winner named!


GOOD LUCK TO ALL WHO ARE ENTERING!

One week? That's a short build time for a full scale contest entry. I'll see what I can come up with.

Also, how does the number of comments determine the winner. Comments may be either compliments, complaints, suggestions, or replies. I'm uneasy about how the entries will be judged.

I'm not in the contest, but just to tell you, the longest time it ever took me to make a gun was 5 hours (not straight of course). So I think one week is fair enough. But that's just me...

Also, to all judges, only count the reviews that have the little "i like it" picture by them.

I understand and know very well that it doesn't take long to make a gun, but getting it ready for a contest is another thing. Neither my Thompson nor my M1911 is contest-ready yet. Both are still WIP. A contest ready gun of mine is my HK416 versions 6+. I also have work and chores I need to do and school will be time consuming, too. I would like more time to build my entry and to get it ready for the contest. It's alright if I can't have that; I'll submit what I do in the next week.

I'm sorry, but I won't be able to enter the contest. I will also be nearly unavailable starting next week due to college classes. So if I don't do much, it's because I'm deep into studies. Thanks.

Thats exactly the same thing as what i suggested, when someone leaves a review with the "i like it" image, it counts as a smiley.

Here is something I should say as a judge. I think we should pick the mocs not by comments as on who is gonna win. Cause I don't wanna sit and count these comments all day!

It wont take all day, all your doing is recording the number of people who liked it. In fact, wou wont even have to count reviews at all, just record the number next to the smiley lego head it the corner where it says "blank" amount of people liked this moc.

This message is for all judges: there are only like 4 people that entered, so judging shouldn't be that hard. Each judge will check out each entry and record the number next to the smilery lego head. They will then post the numbers on this (or a specifically created) thread. The reason everyone is judging everyone is to make sure there are no miscounts. Any conflicting results will lead lead to a recount of that moc.

Too bad I added my Thompson one day before the contest started. It would be nice if entries dated on January 11, 2009 were accepted, because I'm quite in the lead. I feel sad now. http://mocpages.com/moc.php/90290

For the next contest:

I doubt that there will be many contestants, so the contest should encompass shooting, non-shooting, real, and fantasy full scale guns, no categories. Also, give some more time to build and upload as well as notification when the contest starts before it starts, because I had a creation that I submitted the day before the contest began. Also, I have school and work, so one week is not enough time to make my entry contest-ready. Give us a month to build, have everyone submit the same day, and count the smilies for a longer period of time, maybe two weeks. How does that sound?
