Eliminatories!
 Group admin 
And so it starts!

For this free-for-all round,we are using "open" categories, giving you a very loose concept that you can meet in any way you choose.The more creative and smart you are,the more chances you have of passing on to the next round.Only the top 32(or 64) scoring contestants will pass to the next round.

An entry for the qualifying round will be considered valid and reviewed by the judges only once a link to the said entry is posted in the "Eliminatories entry thread".

All rules in the main page of the group apply.Be sure to read them.

The time frame for the eliminitaries is from the 11th to 18th of July.Up until now the time frame is subject to change(to more days,not less).

And the theme is(rumbles):

"Behold the power!"

If you have any doubts regarding the theme or the qualifying round,be sure to ask it in this topic!

Good luck to you all!

Can there be edits to an already existing character that we have, or does it have to be a completely new one?

Well,you can use an already existing character that you have in a history,but not a revamp.For instance,my self moc,Berial, was built quite some time ago,and if I added some stuff to him,it would only be a revamp.It wouldn't be valid for this.Now that first version I unbuilt a long time ago,and the one that I'm building now is completely now in terms of design and build,so I could very well use it here if I wanted.
So,the build has to be new.Of course you can use some of the techniques you used in other mocs.

Not so sure if was so clear.Got it?

Thanks man. I already built my entry, my new secondary self-moc. It is based on an old character that I posted only ONE picture of on MOCpages. My entry and this old moc look nothing alike. Thanks!

so, when is the deadline for this?

Well,if 64 divided in half would get 32.Then 32 divided in half again would get 16.After,16 cut in half would get 8.And 8 divided in two would get 4.Then,4 divided in 2 would get 2.Finally,2 divided by 2 would get the winner.So that's 6 weeks.Unless some people get cut.Clears things up now?

It will last a bit more than six weeks,but I don't think that's what he's asking.I think he wants to now how long this round will last.So far it's going to last a week,but as I said in my first post the time frame is subject to change.

Nope,I'm sorry.Do the little cat face of shrek and ask here to have at least your legos to play.Tell here is for some important stuff.If that doesn't work,just hide yourself somewhere and build with them as you will.If there hidden somewhere,make sure you find them and then build your moc.After doing so,take the pictures and put the pieces back into the place they were.She'll never notice.

Nope,you got it wrong.Round one will end monday,independing of the number of people we gather.Of course,if few people join(higlhy doubt it) then we may prolong this for a while.I may prolong it for while even if we get a lot of people,just to make sure less people are eliminated to round 2.For now it ends monday 11:59 pm mocpages time.

I'm assuming you mean "extended for 24 hours" and not "in 24 hours". In that case, I'll really have to rush because I have nothing to enter as of yet. (Lack of inspiration. A.K.A. "MOCist's block".)

You see, Raviel, the reason a Moderator of MOCpages has to approve your first MOC is of October 24, 2010, (Correct me if I'm wrong) all new applicants of MOCpages are invisible until their first MOC is approved. This is kind of like a background check. This is to make sure you aren't a hacker or something. I hope this cleared up some things. ~David.
