Getting in the top five for my first MoCAthalon is a really satisfying accomplishment. I'm fortunate to have the teammates I do. Thanks guys :D

Wow...4th place for Intrepid is a dream come true. As TheBricks said, a big thanks to all of my team mates for making this possible, all of us gave 100%. Getting for 4th in this competition is just amazing for me.

I must point out a very simple fact: Our team did not have a single AFOL, just 4 TFOLs and 1 YFOL. From an age to point ratio, I believe we did the best out of any high scoring team.

Congratulations to Common Elements, Gaia, and Jigsaw! Awesome work guys.

Considering two teammates didn't build and the other three pretty much quit at week 2, 23rd is great for My Little Pwny!

12th isn't bad, just wish the last 3 entries we had got in on time. :/ Congrats to all, this was a fun MA, I think I did pretty well, I was on a decent team with NO AFOLS! :D So, in other words, teenagers still can do good in one of these contests. :3

Great job Bazinga Bricks! Let's do it again next year!

Congratulations to Common Elements, and everyone else! (Well, except for the people who did worse than the Expendables. {I kid. ;)}) Everyone who participated and did their best should be proud, this was a stunning year. Great work, and here's to more MocAthalons to come!

Congratulations to all the winners, you enriched the community of some memorable MOCs. Congratulations to everybody participating in the athalon, cause it is a remarkable achievement to speed build for 30 days. I bow low before the judges, knowing how much work it must have been to judge, coordinate and discuss this mega event. As a mere member of the audience, I say thank you everybody for the fantastic entertainment.

Oh yeah, and thank you judges! Your dedication and hard work is admirable, and we wouldn't have a MocAthalon without you. Speaking of such, I'd like to thank Mr. Phipson for coming up with this whole competition. My hat's off to you all!

Congratulations to the winning team! Common Elements was clearly in their element (no pun intended) from the moment this contest started!
Team Jigsaw and GAIA should also being congratulated on a stupendous job! Jigsaw, for me personally, was a favorite: they came out of nowhere in the second half of the game, and unloaded a flood of amazing creations upon the playing field. As for GAIA, they were a solid group from the start, and their creations were all a beauty to behold!

Congrats to the judges as well, who kept the peace, judged fairly, and put up with an un-holy amount of nonsense! You guys were the best!

Finally, I would like to thank my fellow MOCtley Crewers. If you would have told me that a hodge-podge group of builders who barely knew each other existed and had virtually no MOCAthalon experience between the five of them could manage to land in 6th place, I'd call you crazy. But it did happen! If I'm still around next year, Lord willing, I can guarantee you that MOCtely Crew will come back stronger and harder. Well-done, everyone, well-done!

As much as I'd like to say it's a surprise that we came in second, it really isn't due to the skill set that beat us.
Common Elements was quite the team this year!
Congrats guys, it was great fun to try to take you down this year!

Though next year.... Next year will be very different indeed.
;)

Thanks to all the judges and contestants for working their hardest to keep this contest running smoothly.
Special thanks to my teammates as well, without whom I would have actually slept this month and probably not done any building.

Next year isn't gonna get here fast enough!

Congratulations to everyone for making it through to the end. I have to say I lucked out with being on a team with three awesome builders. Not sure what happened to our 5th builder? Anyone heard from Louis? Seriously, I'm starting to get worried here... he kind of fell of the face of the earth.

Thanks to Nannan, Legohaulic & LIttlehaulic for inviting me to be part of such a dedicated team. And I thought I was a fast builder! Geez guys! If I'd not been out of town for a week, we might have completed all 30 categories...

Anyhow, it was great to see so many awesome builds from Team Jigsaw and Team GAIA and loads of other MOCers who put their best stuff forward on little to no sleep and virtually no life beyond the brick.

Finally, thanks to the judges. It's not an easy task I'm sure. Thanks for putting up with all of us.

Huge thanks to the judges for taking time out of each day to host and oversee this competition the entire month! Although we may have had some minor qualms over some scoring decisions, you all did a fantastic job putting up with us and sticking to your standards. I hope to see you all around next year!

(And correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Common Elements down one member the entire time? I don't think we could have come as close as we did to their score without that handicap.)

Huge congrats to all the teams! This was an excellent year that saw some absolutely brilliant creations. Looking forward to 2013!

No offense but i'll just try and derail praise or credit for the guy who puts a lot of his personal time into trying to improve our community, sometimes without much in the way of thanks and often while being derided, questioned or occasionally being outright insulted or mocked.
