2WC 6: The Post-MocAthalon
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Alright, first some announcements.
Finn and Bick Boy, thanks for doing your best to keep things moving, I fully blame March's competition for the lack of activity. Anyway, you both will be relieved of duty until either one of you winns another challenge like we usually do.
I'm back from the MOCAthalon and that means we can hopefully get things really moving again. So on to the Sixth Two Week Challenge's details!

Details:
So if any of you competed in this year's MocAthalon and are not burned out, you are a machine! So anyway, if you are not burned out, and you still wanted to build in the categories and get that thrill of competing, here you go. If you had ideas for categories but you ran out of time or another team member already had the category, or you misread the rules, here's your chance to build for those categories. If you didn't join a team in time or even know in time, here's your chance to get to somewhat participate. You will be without teams and are free.

So basically, we are making it very easy. Choose one or more of the categories from this year's MocAthalon categories: http://mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=22242&topicid=88086 and build one or more entries without duplicating a category.

Rules:
~Must be a 2013 category and follow its rules specifically.
~Must be stated which category is chosen in the post. (Preferably near the top in the introduction or first few lines)
~Must be a new creation for each build
~There can be more than one entry per builder
~No duplicate entries for the same category by the same builder
~If you choose to build in more than one category, they must be seperate posts, none of that combo stuff.
~The entries must be posted with a link in this conversation topic to be judged
~Your entries must be in by the end of April 12th, 2013, MOCpages time

Points:
A total of 20
5: Interpretation of the category. Thinking outside the box will give you a higher score.
10: Build. What techniques where used? Etc.
5: Presentation. You know blurry pics, big grammar issues, and that stuff aren't going to help you much.

Just to answer some frequent questios right away...
No, your title does not need to be fancy.
No, you do not need to have a link coming back to the group or the conversation page, just a link on this page to your post.
No, you do not need to have participated in any of the previous Two Week Challenges.

Any other questions will be answered as soon as possible.

Happy Building!

Post every entry. We don't usually have "Post as many entries as you like" contests. The number of entries will not hinder the scores in any way unless they're all not too good.

I'm not a smack thread kind of guy, but if you can find more people, I guess it's okay. I think that it'd be better to be building than try and show each other up with just words. Let the building do the talking.

I'd love to enter, but as you said in the description, some of us are still burned out from the MA. Along with that, I'm in Round 4 of the ALO, in a few MOC-offs, and my sister began a massive lego project, and still has a lot of my pieces. Again, sorry, but I don't think I'll be able to enter. :(

The number of entries is irrelevant to the score. They don't combine together. Now, say we had prizes and there was a 1st/2nd/3rd thing, you would only get one place. So basically, it's the highest score out of all the creations.

Look, I seperated the comment into sections so that people didn't have to read all of it, but it seem you don't want to even skim through and find the bits of information you want from one section of bullet points. Everything was in that first comment and it was brief. It seems you would have already read the comment before since you know what category, but you're not impressing me with your "9th Grade Reading Level" because that is a made up thing. It's a suggestion based off of what kids typically read by their 14th year of life years ago. That changes constantly and is most like dropping in standards with today's society. At a "9th Grade Reading Level" you should have been able to look at that comment and read it within a minute or two without thinking that it was too long because you know it could have been a lot worse. And I don't care about what I said earlier. You started a new topic in MOCpages Help about the activty bar being broken when there already was one that I recycled. You didn't even think to check the very bottom where the new comments were if you even clicked on the topic. So it wasn't just here. That first comment in this topic gave you all the information you would have needed but all you did was look at the title and say, "I'm all in!" If there was anything that was not specified or implied by the first comment and a reader was not sure about something that was not so specific like what to do or when this thing ended, then a question would have been fine.

Alright, we are clashing horns to often.
I did read the entire comment, but I simply don't have the time to read such things over and over again. Also, I DID read the other topic in MOCpages help...but I had a different question. Although the two things were basically the same, I felt the need to create another topic that addressed a specific question. I respect that you have power here, but that does NOT mean that you can tell me what to do outside your areas of power. As an example: I'm admin of LOM, but I can't just say "I want to run this group!" I hope you understand what I'm trying to get through:)
I simply asked the question of "when does this end" because I have a limited time to get things done! Now i'm not attacking you when I say this, why do you Always have the need to reply in a lengthy matter?
We could accomplish much more if we kept t short and fast.
Again, may I still enter if my entry is posted today?
I hope that we can stop these comment "wars!"

It's also getting closer to Final Exams for this semester of college, so little things got me agrivated. You see, just like in High School it seems that the teachers feel the need to not do a bunch of work until the last few weeks and then they realize they don't have enough grades to make a final grade, or so it seems, and they give projects and other things to deal with.

Well, due to unfortunate events, we have a tie of 45 between Finn and Halhi. Now, I'm not going to ask for a third judge because that could result in even more ties, and since I don't want to alter scores, we'll do this. This contest proposes problems because of all the different categories so we can't just vote for who's build was better, and since we can't fight to the death, I'm just going to go off of report cards. This means who ever has won more contests in all of the contests held here will win.

That means Halhi wins 2 to 1.

Congratulations Halhi on your third win in all of the contests held. You get to pick the next contest. And you being an admin and having many ideas that you have contributed to the group list, you can make the next Two Week Challenge no problem. I'll assist if you need me.
