Welcome one and all to the 2011 MocAthalon!

Most of you know how this works from last year. For those that don't here's a basic rundown of things things will happen.

Step 1: Sign up in the sign up thread with your name and a link to your homepage.

Step 2: On your own, form teams of 5. Each team can have NO MORE than TWO AFOLs per team. You can have less or none if you wish, but no more than TWO.

Step 3: Once your team has been formed, ONE person from your team may create a thread for your group (with a cool name if you wish). ONE person from your group will open the thread with a list of the players on your team, after that, your thread will be used for posting ONLY links to your mocs. NO CHATTING! For chatting, we have a "chat thread" so feel free to clog that up if you wish.

Step 4: Each team must create a private group for you all to plot and scheme and figure out who is going to do what. You MUST invite the judges to this group.

Step 5: Once in your group, you will have the opportunity to decide who is playing in what category. There's a strategy to this so think carefully. How the categories work and what you can play in will be discussed in the rules thread. You will NOT be getting the categories until a day or so before the start date.

Official start date for the games is March 1st and your team will have 30 days to produce as many MOCs as you can before the end of the day (MOCpages time, 11:59 PM) on March 30th.

Good luck everyone!

Yes it was fantastic!

And to all the contestants this year, I am sure you will find it comforting to know that each of the five of us who will be judging you this year actually competed in last year's games! So we all know exactly what kind of effort you are putting into this whole thing because we've all been there too.

Good luck all, and most importantly have fun!

To be a bit nostalgic, for the last years players which hopefully play this time again and impress with their models - and for all newcomers:

Keeping you distracted from me is just a good thing in general while keeping you distracted from Kelso is required by law I believe...

Indeed. We are the most misfit bunch of underdogs to ever hastily assemble a team.
