How will be notified of our new opponents and categories?

At the beginning of each round, I'll post a list of who's against who, and which category each group has.

To clear this up, opponents will be assigned randomly, using a computer program.

I will tentatively say the 12th. I need to figure out what the best date is to start (and end!) each round. Hopefully it will be between the 11th to the 14th for entry round start.

Whoopsie, forgot to answer this one ;D

Each round is 10 days, with 4 days after for judging, like last year. The 4 Judging days will get at least a saturday and a sunday, so the build time only includes one weekend. I think that the build period WILL include two fridays though, for people who find it hard to fit building into their school schedule.

Alright, let's make this clear:

DO NOT ADD ANY MOCS TO THE GROUP RIGHT NOW!

The entry round hasn't started yet so there's no point posting an entry. Also, you don't need to add your self-MOC to the group. Don't do that. If your opponent needs to know what your self-MOC looks like, they can simply go to your page. Grayson, I advise that you lock the pool for right now.

Thank you.

Flickr allows mobile uploads. Try posting them there. If not, I don't know what to say- you've had a few weeks to do this, you shouldn't be given an extension because you didn't post until the last minute.

Not sure what you mean, but just in case you mean you want to continue in the second round. This is an elimination contest, so if you wanted to enter, you would have had to make a MOC for the Entry Round and post it and then if you made it past the cut-off, you would have been entered into the contest. But you didn't, so there is no way you can enter now. If this contest comes back next year, you can try entering then.

I have question, and I will clarify ahead of time I don't want sympathy or to be treated specialy I just want my question answered. I have never won anything in my life, does that mean I'm failing at life or just at everything I have tried so far? Again no sympathy, (I was laughing at my own misery while typing this thus entertaining myself with how, to be honest its kinda funny if you get past the fact that its really sad, the thought of all the times I've "missed it by that much").

*sigh* since nobody else is gonna take it...

I can't exactly offer any sagely wisdom here, but in middle school I felt the same way. One day I decided to follow this guy I kinda knew to where he sat at lunch, and I met a whole bunch of really funny great people, and now that first guy is one of my best friends. I guess that what I'm saying is that you just need to figure out what you want, and how you can get it, rather than dwelling in what you don't have. Find something you like or are good at and do that, even if it's not Lego. You don't have to fit in everywhere, just be happy with what you do, and find someplace you do fit.

Not really what I meant, i Do have friends. I meant I've literally just never won a competition or anything like that. In addition I do know what I'm good at, including mocing, I'm just unconfident. That and I'm extremely socialy awkward due to having asperghers, which is why what I say doesn't often reflect what I mean.

Plus I moc for the fun of it (and hopes of being recognized for being good at something that I like to do by a group of people who are also interested in the same thing).

I realize that, I was just trying to relate your feelings I guess. You know, it's also not always a good idea to just going around advertising yourself and your conditions, it's not something that other people really need to know. I avoid it.

OK, thanks, and sorry I'm working on it.

There is plenty of time left for another SMoT, but I gotta let other people do their contests, and give people a break. I hear Chronos is planning a contest, plus Gringat's been holding some good ones ;D
