A 100 pieces or less contest would really fit in a Table scap category.

How about this. We make a MOC and show all the pieces that were left behind after being selected and unused. Make an other MOC with those pieces and then points are awarded for the best or most creative Table Scrap.

MOC: 10 points
Table Scrap MOC: 40 points
-10 for proof of Scrapage
-30 for creativity

A grand total of 50 points

This is a good Idea. I don't know about prizes but think we should hold off on this contest until the MIT contest and MOColympics are over.

We could consider also categories with 50 pieces or less, but than again, while I'm building, I'm often left with more tablescrap pieces than used in moc..that could seem unfair to others :/

I have the same things happen. Usually with Domo. I have so many armor ideas and then some work and some don't and I'm left with 300 pieces on my desk!

That is a good idea. And how about anything that has been created within approx. 20 minuets, without any serious planning; basically built on the spot.

Well, I think anything would be allowed. I would love to do this...But in the end, it is up to the two admins: What do you guys think?

Well, I consider a table-scrap a thing made with leftover parts and/or things with which you come up while building something but is dead end considering the real intention of building.
At that point I just add the details. As for example: Here I was trying to build a dragon head with torsos and it looked horrible but looked interesting for a fig. Only swords and head where not in original pile . Than I just added display...

The moment you go "Ta-Da" on finishing your moc, look around you if there's something left over ..before cleaning...or take a box and put the peaces you decide not to use after all and build something afterwards :3

I meant that in the end, it is all up to the admins to decide if we should have a contest. And to host it if they do.

If you guys really want to, someone should try to contact one, or both of the admins. No point in continuing this topic without doing anything. Like I said, a contest should be hosted by the admins. They get to decide in the end.

I'm still new in this group, but i would hate to see such a fine group go to waste and disband. we should do anything to make members active again, like a contest of some sort.

It should be in a new group in my opinion; if it were here, everything would be WAY too confusing.

Probably, but I've seen groups that did stuff like that it was SO confusing. Plus everything would be more organized in my opinion.

Sorry I haven't been getting back to your requets. I haven't had much time to get on MOCPages. Anyway, i think we should start a new conversation to start brainstorming rules and ideas, then create a new group for the contest.
