A question of dates.
 Group admin 
It has been brought to my attention that a few nominations can't take place because the post was made before the cutoff of May first.

Attached below from the rules thread:
"Any moc (or person for the Newbie category) posted between May 1st of last year and June 30th of this year is eligable to win!"

Now, I am nothing if not fair and I truly see this as a democracy so I put it to you, the group members to vote on this. How lenient should we be on the dates?

On the one hand, allowing the dates to overlap a bit would let people get things in that were overlooked simply BECAUSE they were too new at the time.

But, playing devil's advocate, if we extend the date by say... a month, then why can't we extend it two months, or three... or more?

So I do understand both sides of the argument here. What are your thoughts? I really do want to hear from everyone and will keep my "vote" to myself for the time being. Should we extend the cutoff or keep the dates firm?

You, the MOCpages users will decide.

Quoting cj cutrone9
I think it should be allowed a few days grace. Like maybe 2 -5 days of grace.

I would like to know if their is a way tofind out what day someone joined.

I would look at the date on the first creation they posted.

I just thought i'd mention that Both Tom Simon and I joined close to April the 20th 2010. The anouncement for Mocie nominations was March 13th 2010. For this years nominations its from May 31st 2010 - June 1st 2011. So effectively the period in which we joined hasn't been covered by any MOCie awards.

Just to throw in what i've just found from research :) Other than that, this is great Chris.

My vote is to add some leniency. I would give one month. As Chris stated, the newer builders from last year were too new to be known or to have made a difference last year. Whereas now, they have shown us some seriously nice builds!
