I don't know why, but MOCpages has been telling me that a lot of the comments in this group are "questionable". I, of course, don't see anything wrong with them (one of them was even the results for month five), but if I keep allowing them, this group could be shut down. Just please, try to monitor your comments to figure out what's going on.

The month 5 results were mine of course and while I hope that I haven't caused anyone any hard feelings, I like to think that my comments were fair and that they helped to explain my judging. I intentionally never said that any aspect of the MOCs were simply bad, I endeavoured to explain specifically where I felt the entry was not as strong and, of course, always made a point of what I thought was really good in every case.

I apologise if any entrant feels that my comments were unfair or harsh. My intention was to inform you what formed the basis of the decisions that I made in the judging. I would like to have said more in the results but time and space were constraints.

I invite any moderator to enter a dialogue with me if you have concerns and I will happily explain to you the basis of any post you would care to bring to my attention and why I feel that nothing that I have posted is questionable.

Finally, I would like to say that as an experienced builder, I feel I have a responsibility to guide and encourage less experienced builders if and where I can to help them to improve their building. I think that contests are a good way of doing this as it allows them to see how experienced builders respond to the same challenges but the feedback they get has to be honest and useful to them because if we must leave people to develop their building skills all by themselves, we ignore the greatest benefit that this very community has to offer.

Thank you.

Sometimes these types of warnings can be triggered (at least on other boards, not sure about here) by automatic checks for short messages, spelling errors, poor grammar, double posts, external links, etc.

I thought your comments were fine. Perhaps it was just a long message with some ALL CAPS headlines.

The problem is probably a result of discussing Heroica's general theme, making monster go missing, if you will.

You're probably right. I just got scared when a lot of the comments were marked as "questionable".
