You're asking how long will it last?If that's the question,well,it all depends on the quantity of builders we can gather.

Well,they were instructed to do so.I guess real life and time are on the way of that.Some of them live in different places other than america(the continent).Take Chris for example,he lives on New Zealand,so he's probably sleeping right now.I'm sure all of them are going to do their best to help things move along!

7:30pm is about 1:30pm NZ time, so usually I'm at the office by then, unreachable to an extent anyways. As I mentioned earlier, after the 15th I'll be on holiday up to August the 3rd, so my activity here will be even less. I will try to keep an eye on you guys, though if any of you guys happen to be in LA or Miami on the 15th or Belize City on the 16th onwards, hit me up for a chat.

My question: can someone explain? Iv'e seen people already make entries, I have no idea what to do in this group. I'm confused please explain.

First of all, read the general rules in the group description. After it, go to the eliminaories topic, where the theme and round rules are explained. Them make your entry and post it in the group and the assigned topic. And last, but not less important: have fun.

Any other doubt ask here.

@Owl the Owl:

If its a completely new MOC, yes. If not, well... no. Anyway, you gotta ask yourself if that particular MOC would fit the theme.

There have been similar problems in other contests, but this is a bit less formal, I thnk we will be able to work a way around that. You should focus on passing the eliminatories for now.

I don't think so. If it don't fit the rules, I think it can be changed in some rare special cases (that would be only in the case of replacing non-allowed parts, but in this case we wouldn't even judge it, and the changing might have to be restricted to the replacement fo those parts alone). So, I would say that if you have already been judged, them you can't change it.

Anyway, this is my opinion, we gotta have an agreement between the jdges before stating anything for sure. You guys enjoy this first round, because its still the adaptation phase, so we may be a bit more tolerant...But don't abuse.

Sorry, but if we allowed one contestant to edit his entry after judging, we should allow all of you to do the same.
I'd hate to lose a great contestant such as yourself, but rules are only fair if they apply to everyone, I'm sure you understand that.
I have posted your case in the Judges' group, a decision will be made shortly.

Is there a limit on how many System pieces we can put into our moc? I know that in the rules it states that we should keep System parts to a minimum, but the only thing that has been bugging me about that rule is if there is a limit. That is kind of my only way of bulking my entry up. I don't have the most Bionicle pieces.

You should wait for the results of the first round,that will most probably be up at tuesday,even though we judges will have a handful of work to do until then.
When they're up,be sure to check it back here and se if you made it to the next and second round,and also what theme and opponent will be assigned to you,if,of course,you make it.

Possibly. 7/10 is a good score. Actually, it'll be really difficult to see us giving more than 9.

Probably.Seven is a good score,I myself haven't given a nine yet,the highest score I gave so far was 8,so you can say that seven is a pretty coveted score,hehehe...

I was building my first Titan for my self-moc's story and I was wondering, could I use him as my first entry? The possible problem is that he is my own take on a canon Bionicle character. But one of those that most people would probably have never heard of. Here is his Wiki page: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=3&ved=0CCwQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fbionicle.wikia.com%2Fwiki%2FTobduk&ei=OhQfTrnwAc3DsQLDx4iZAw&usg=AFQjCNHS8PmN-ITJ2Rzory4OBVqlonuULg&sig2=FnuRIwSKFdQMsKpcUsDcXw Let me know if he can be used in the contest please.

There's no problem mate,as long as he's a new build,it doesn't matter if he's an old character.We're not after the stories here.

Sorry, but no.Once it has been posted, it can't be changed anymore. Now, before you guys say about the case of Grimblade, his was special, in wich otherwise he would get DQ. Anyway, in the next rounds this kind of thing won't happen again.

And don't worry, Raviel, I'm pretty sure they'll judge it before the end.

Exactly how many "judges" doing scoring are there? 5 or 6? I know there are 6 admin people, but are they all scoring? Does everyone get 5 or 6 scores? If everyone gets 5 scores...might everyone be scored by a different set of 5?

Righto I'm not sure what the average points given out per Moc have been but I got a score of 34/60 which I saw why but I noticed that there are 115 members in the group 109 when you take out the judges but only 47 entries. So going by that I'm assuming that unless another 17 entries are posted by the 18th then it will be culled to 32 people. Anywho I was wondering how 34/60 would compare to others so far in the competition and what the likeliness of getting through would be?

Then...last I checked I only had been scored by 5 judges. Not that it will help any...but you never know... you may get a flood of entries at the last moment. In my case, hopefully to make the number of entries a bit over 64! :)

I already judged yours days ago. Be patient as some judges like to judge entries by the group. For me it takes me at around average 5 mins to judge and comment on all entry. Multiply that by a possible 50 to 60 entries and your looking at 4 to 5 hours of judging. So it does take a lot of effort on our part also.

I'm not sure about what you're saying there,but you can only build within the theme that was assigned to you.And it can be a completely freak looking TOA,not a completely freak looking thing.It has to be what you think an evil toa would look like.Hope that clears it up.

Just imagine how a Toa would see or imagine the incarnation of Death. Since for mankind it has the form of a human skeleton in a black cape, the Toa version should also be Toa-like in a way (this round's theme is Toa, after all) other than that, it's all in your hands.

He has to be a Toa that turned to the evil side.The story is not really the important here,we only care about the build,design,presentation,etc.More techinical aspects you see.But if you add a nice story to him,who knows,it my get you some points.

What a pity,you even were one the first few to be invited!It would be great to have you as a contestant,but I really don't see how could you step in at this point of the contest.I'm sure you would've passed through the first round,but now,well,the first round has already passed you,hehehe...
Perhaps if we have some sort of W.O. I think you could step in,but even then,we still have the contestants that joined the first round but didn't qualify to the second,so they would have to be our first pick.
It's a real pity,I guess that now the only way you would be able to participate is as a judge.
