2WC 5: Bricks From Above
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Alright, before we get on with the details, a few announcements.
1. MOCathalon seems to be affecting us a bit.
2. Transformers has been openned up in the contest ideas for a later time since we only had one entry.
3. finn tegotash will still be a moderator and we'll be adding Brick Biy so we have two judges for this challenge and the duration of the MOCAthalon.

Alright, so this challenge's theme is:
Bricks From Above.

Build anything from the heavens, but you must keep it within the atmosphere which means no cosmos stuff, and it can't be something we've seen. This means use your imagination. No airplanes or helicopters. We're looking for aliens living in clouds, dragons, flying pirate ships, stuff like that.

Piece limitations may be added by Brick Boy. It's difficult to say because I don't want to restrict you guys, but I am also not judging.

This challenge will end March 29th and judging will be the 30th. After that, I'll be back for sure.

Other than the deadline and theme, Brick Boy can make any changes to the rules and regulations. I didn't provide many, so posting requirements and stuff like that are up to him.

I will not be entering this one because of the MA but I hope to do a few of these in the future. Please keep the contests coming so that I can do some after the MA finishes.

You said that your entry must be an old model. Did you mean that it must not be an old model?

Hey everyone, sorry I didn't get a chance to compete in the last contest. School got in the way. But, if LDD is allowed, I CAN compete in this one!

I soppose we could look the other way in this contest.But you must ask MCLegoboy if it is okay.
I myself am fine with LDD.
But if MC leaves the decision up to me....The answer is yes.
Also, sorry if this comes out with some errors, I am not using my computer.

Hi! I'm new member in group and this is also my first contest I mean participate. So, here is some questions:

-Can i entered this contest or I'm too late because you must solve some elder contest to participate this one?

-What is form for name for my creation? Maybe: "2WC 5: Bricks From Above: Creation name"

-Can i add ground in mini scale? So it's gonna look like we look earth from sky.

Hi i'm Brick, and I can answer two of your questions.

Question1.Yes you can still enter, every contest is two weeks long.
I'm not sure if this one has started yet....so ask MCLegoboy.

Question2.Yes again!You may add ground in mini scale.
My one tip on the subject is that try to use forced perspective.

I think that anything to get entries in during the MOCAthalon is cool. Remember, I'm not judging this round, I'm too preoccupied with the MOCAthalon, so I'll be back next challenge.

1. Yes, you can enter in this contest and any others in the future unless specified otherwise.
2. No specific name, we're pretty relaxed.
3. Well, I'm not judging this challenge, I'll be back soon, but I would have still allowed it.

Unfortunatly the Mocathalon and the ALO are going on at the moment, which is making some people to busy to participate.

Did I say the 30th, I don't remember. It looks like only one person has entered. Anyway, I have a great idea for the next one to get people back.

Yeah, I just reread what I wrote, only one person, win by default. But I would say still judge them just so there is closure, but I'll be making the next category for sure.

I didn't know that the contest ended yesterday. But could you still look at it and give your opinion. I can remove it from the group if you want me to.
