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!

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...
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. Permalink
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. Permalink

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. Permalink
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. Permalink
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 Permalink

rly sry, but I have to keep to the rules on this one. Maby if you had let me or one of the other judges know we could have made an exception. Rly sorry, I'll try and give more of heads up they next time i host a contest. Permalink
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? Permalink
