Indeed I did. It arrived on Jan 6th, three days before my birthday. By the way, I would really like to thank you for these awesome contests and fir supplying these great prizes. I'm glad that I could participate last year, and I hope to compete again this year. This contest will hopefully help me get out of my recent MOCing block. Thanks again for the prize! It's an awesome set and I'm unsure if I should take it apart just yet.

UGH! Its getting close to the competition day, and NO ONE has helped with getting me a TEAM. Will someone please do it! :P

Wish I could help but I already have a team. Remember, there is no rush to be getting your teams. Just get together five people (including yourself) and make a team, it's as simple as that. Maybe asking some friends to join if nobody else wants to.

I can't wait until March. These contests are the one of the main reason that I enjoy MOCpages so much, it really gives me something to do. It usually takes me a while to come up with something to build, but after competing in these contests you learn how to think and build fast. It's great fun, even if you don't do too good. In my point of view, these contests are for the fun of it and not for getting extremely mad because you didn't win.

True...I forgot that he's a judge for a second (my mind is all over the place today.) But it does sort of make sense: Kelso makes a grand, late entrance as High Judge, comments on everyones creations, decides, "Pathetic! I can do better than these kiddies!", removes himself as a judge, and then proceeds to build a 500,000 piece MOC incorporating every single category just to prove he's the best :D

Well gents, things are going quite smoothly!

So far 125 people have signed up for the games in the first 4 days! Last year we had 129 sign-ups, in total!

The MOCAthalon has consistently been one of the largest LEGO contests in the community. Lets see if we can make this year's the largest!

You could always just throw in with some team who's just doing this for fun without hope of winning and make a few quickie entries in your spare time.

I guess that's true, but I already turned down like five different team offers (one of which was really tempting). After telling that many people "I'm not playing", I'd feel kind of cruddy joining in after all.

By my count, we have 27 teams signed up. That only adds up to 135 players. Taking out Kaleta's team (who will be all posting under his account so the numbers will be off for those of you trying to do the math) it's only 131 members signed up on teams. We have a total of 225 members in the group. Minus the 6 judges that means... (carry the one...) there's still 88 players NOT on a team!

If you're NOT on a team and you wish to play, you NEED to go to this group:

http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/19981

and get on a team QUICK! There's only 2 days left to get your final team formed and signed up! We'll do our best to help the stragglers form groups but we can't be expected to find homes for all 88 of you.

If you're signed up in the team building group actively looking for a team, you WILL be able to play, we'll find you a team. If not... well... we can't do everything for you.

Hey guys, remember that we only have 1 day left for signing up.

Make sure you that you join the group here if you need to work out a team:

http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/19981

If you are in the group and actively looking for a team, the judges will help you find a team once the actual sign-ups have closed.

Oh, about 2 hours ago.

In this case, it was not your fault at all, but theirs. My suggestion would be to go talk it over with them. There's not much we can really do about it right now, but you can at least let them know about your situation.

Sorry about this bud.

Yeah, I think you joined after they already had five members so they kicked you. Sorry.

Um.. Quick question? Am I still able to apply my team? The reason I wasn't able to was that I wasn't allowed on my laptop. Let me know if it's possible that I can.:s


Ooh. I don't know. I doubt it.

Looking through the final team thread, I found your team. It seems that they are already signed up. (Though the sign-up is missing a link to your group)

OK, this is fun. My first entry is built, my second is a WIP.

Anyone have some good tips on making a mosaic?

Here's one, don't try too hard. Be free with the colors, let your spirit flow. Even if (when) it looks like crud in the end, don't worry, I'm sure the judges will love it!

...In other words, this is not the place to ask for advice. XD

I'd say use ONLY one color when you build it, and keep it real small (like 8x8), and while your at it use only Mega Bloks. ;)

Actually, 4x4 is preferable. >.>

All good mosaics look amazing from a distance, then when you look closer it looks like completely random pixels. So, just spend a few hours throwing bricks together, then walk away. With any luck it'll look fantastic from a distance. The longer you spend on it the better.

Looks like a few people have already fallen victim to the "working-link-required" rule, which states that you MUST put a working link to the MocAthalon in your creation. Real shame for the people that got '0's; sometimes, it's the little problems that cost you big :/

Hey, so I've already committed to a team, and I could have sworn I signed up about a week ago. But it seems I forgot to submit my comment, and now you have locked the conversation.....

Anyway you can add me down for the Ballistic Brickers, pretty please?

Mr. Church,

Since I saw your post saying that you "signed up" and because your team has signed you up, I will allow you to continue with your team as normal.

Best of luck!

Oh, there is an actual technical issue with the links not working? I didn't know that; I was just saying I feel bad for the people who forgot to put them in. I actually like the mandatory link rule; it makes the contest seem "legit", if that makes any sense :P Personally, I always double-check to see if a link is working before I upload a creation to a group or contest.

Why do the entries have no smiley faces on them?
They have plenty of likes.

There's a little bug circling around MOCpages right now that is causing some problems with the 'likes'.
