It's my first year, and am having quite a lot of fun already!

Though I don't get the smack threads....they just seem like a way for people to pull witty comments in a degrading manner towards other people...so I don't join that.

I like that it brings a lot of builders together for something a bit more "official" manner if you know what I mean.

Is each round always 10 days?

Yeah, that's why I went all out in round 1.
Are the positions in Round 1 used as people get eliminated in the future rounds as to who verses who?

the smack thread is all in fun - nothing is meant to be malicious - its all in the spirit of competition. Sorta like egging each other on!

It might have something to do with the fact that I was waiting for a BL order and sick:I I just really wish I made it to round two:/ *Cough* 2 more points and I would've made it*cough*

Yeah, that's tough...I was like that for the MELO. That's when I first got here and dabbled a little bit with doing contests and I was like "oh....I'm going to have to spend a lot more time to get up there...note to self"

Round two is when you'll be able to see easily who you're against in the following rounds. You'll be against the winner of the match-up above (for even numbered match-ups) or below (odd numbered) in round 3, 4, and so on. The match-ups aren't actually numbered, but you know what I mean

It's one against one for me, Xeno's vote is what will decide my match-up.

I'm rooting for Elliot/Legopard/Deus.

Tough! I think you have a good chance though. I liked your clean and professional look that yous has. It's a bit more realistic. Too bad you didn't have hundreds of those small teeth eh?

Does anyone know how the matchup a are placed from here on? Because I would hate to have ranked really good in round one for me to be matched up against LWC guy in round 3 :/

I think you are up against LWC guy :/ If my brother makes it he will be against Blake I'm pretty sure...

I think I will be up against Jackson Williams (since his opponent didn't get anything.


For the brackets I think they do the whole first/last thing for where you are in the bracket.

He's against Jacob, LWC Guy lost. I think. He built way off category.
I'd be against Simon if I move on.

I'm pretty sure it's:

1 vs. 8
2 vs. 7
3 vs. 6
4 vs. 5

in each bracket.

Then the winners from each bracket will face off (notice that it's the 4 people who get prizes besides the longest standing YFOL/TFOL) each other for the grand prize.

That's how it should be.
Still disappointed by how yours was judged. I can see how they'd vote for Blake's I guess, but I honestly liked yours far better (and knowing that I'm usually pretty blunt when I don't like something, that's a compliment). It was actually one of my favorite entries in the whole contest!

Hopefully if Blake decides to drop out you can take his spot.


I'm also disappointed that Deus got out (posted late). And that John 55555 got out. And Legopard. And Justin Knelsen. And a lot of the other people.

Also very disappointed that SuperSpy X didn't post >:/
