I haven't been getting homework. I am taking classes that haven't been giving much of it. I could be doing Trig homework, but I already know everything within the first three chapters, and probably even half the class.

Basically, it's a huge contest run by one of the people who help run MOCpages. The contest itself is like this: in a time of 30 days, up to 30 MOCs that fit with the 30 categories given may be submitted by teams of 5. The more MOCs that the team makes, the better the chance that team might win. Each MOC is graded out of 5. Only one MOC per category may be submitted, and all of the MOCs must be new.

I hope that helps!

Quoting Monsterlego ,

Your jouney in this group ends here. Sorry, you were not chosen. However, there are many options you can take.

Option 1: Give up. This is not encouraged but can be done.
Option 2: Keep looking around and be the fillers of incomplete teams.
Option 3: Form your own team of the four of you and find your own filler.

I personally like Option 3 for you guys, but Option 2 is also really good. There are a bunch a groups just looking for one person, hopefully you meet their expectations. Best of luck to you all.

Quoting Bad Guy XD

HEY YOU! Congratulations! You have been selected as part of our MOCAthalon team. Get comfy while you can, it's about to get intense.

Okay... I guess we need to do some explaining.

We basically had Bad Guy chosen and we agreed on it in our staff group for eXtreme TFOLs. So what was the wait all about. Well, Dan Church was invited, and he must have declined our invitation, because he's no longer being shown in the Group Members section as being invited. He's not even there. We were going to give him until the end of today before just giving it to Bad Guy. So that's our story, and we're sticking with it.

Anyway, thanks for being patient, best of luck to the four who were not selected.

Yeah, this was for the people who have been wondering, and for those who do not recieve e-mails when they are replied to.

Well, except for the Wasjig bird, but it was only Nick that gave him a four, so it counts.

I agree. I don't want to try and find his creation, but this one guy made a great build for Tropical Paradise and everyone gave hime 4s and 5s but Nick gave him a 1 because the shot was a little blurry. You could see everything just fine but nick said he couldn't tell what everything was. Bullcarp.

All he freaking builds are Halo guns! They might look cool, but I don't know what the heck they are! It also looked like he had only been in the MOCAthalon last year and the builds weren't even that impressive. I'm doing it again next year for sure, I just need to time manage a little better and get my team on board.

Their collection is larger and they are better organized. That's why he got 10 build out. Time is only an issue when searching for pieces.

The collection, yes, definitely. I have an okay system, but not what I want. I'm searching for good organizing bins. :)
