Tourney Intro
 Group admin 
Ok, the Tourney is coming up, and the entries are due. In case you guys want to put the entry up before I do, which is fine, here is the general format it should be:

It would just be a MOC of your figure walking into the Tourney ina parade or whatever. This part isn't too important.

It must include a single shot of your minifig, preferably in full uniform. Minor changes may be aloud, but please ask first. The uniform will most likely not be used throughout the entire tournament, but WILL be used for your first entry.

It must include the guild name and motto (Still working on the motto part).

It must include the link to the guild theme song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHZRKx98ync

That's pretty much it, anything I'm missing?

The full uniform is the red whatchamacallit in the guild intro, right? Nice theme song by the way.

I have question...can I PLEASE wear something decent? I'm all for team pride and what not, but I have a reputation to uphold with my MOCs. I have Halhi's figure, your figure, and my own all in our normal clothes...so could I just use those? Anyways, everything else is in order I guess.

What kind of reputation restricts someone from doing fun things with their FRIENDS? Not one I would want to have... Ughh, fine. Obviously I'm not going to force you to this. Unlike everybody else, you do NOT need to do the first requirement. I'm not being sarcastic here, I'm allowing you to do this. I just hope no one else gets any ideas, and soon EVERYBODY is building an entry without speedos, which are essential. I still don't understand what the big deal is? It's a speedo, it's funny, and a bunch of great builders are doing it with you! It's not like you are alone! Do you really want to be the loner who is the only one not participating?

You don't have red hips? Remember that you can turn around textured hips in you need to. But I think it would be rather funny to have no speedo at all! Nude for the win!

I think the current supposed theme song is detrimental to an intro anyway, as it conveys a completely different feeling than the moc's.

Nope. Remember, you aren't actually a full admin, just a momentary position to invite potentiometer recruits, so you can't make decisions like this. ;) maybe I'll depromote you if I suddenly become miraculously un-lazy or something, but that probably won't happen anytime soon...

So you'll be enforcing the song you want when most everyone else would like a different one?

I think the current supposed theme song is detrimental to an intro anyway, as it conveys a completely different feeling than the moc's.

EDIT: Just saw your reply to Lindel; I'll get searching for one, then. :P

Yep :P I will too...

I approve. =) Why don't we make it an option which theme song to use, so everyone can use whichever fits better with the mood of their MOC?

Quoting Halhi 141
Well I think it's pretty clear that there's several of us that don't like the current one / like this one better (like I said, different people have different tastes in music...). Perhaps making it optional would be better.

Did you see my reply to Lindel? It's not that I'm forcing this song upon you guys, it's that it's the song I believe fits the group and the essence of the group most. At this point, it literally is completely up to me. I am fully aware of how much I sound like a dictator, except for the fact that I said I am willing to change the theme song if I think it fits better than the current one. I do not like the "Tempered Steel" song as I don't think it is epic, a good theme song, and I think it is truly boring. Not being a good theme song what so ever was the main point though. No voting is gonna be aloud for this, only me and my personal bias. I am completely open for ideas, and I know people are going to start hammering me with links, so I guess I better get to it, eh?

If I had a choice between David's song, and Halhi's second song, I would choose David's in a heartbeat. I really don't want something slow and kinda boring, I want something fast and awesome, like something you would listen to while working out or something.

The thing is that there's different tastes in music among the group members; I see for instance that you only like music with lyrics, whereas Kai and I (and a few others) prefer classical/movie type music. I personally like Mt Everest a lot and think it works well for a parade MOC considering that the overall tone and style is very triumphant, as if we've already won the Tourney and actually entering it is just a formality. Just my opinion.

Yeah, I would NEVER have guessed that hidden meaning in that song. It does not sound triumphant to me at all, it just sounds full and boring. I'm looking for something that is fast and fun and awesome, not some boring classical number. Maybe it sounds epic to you band members, but not to me, and not to a lot of the rest of the world. And who said I liked songs with lyrics? The CURRENT theme song only has 4 words! I listen to house music and rave music, which might explain my lack of interest for your band music.

This is exactly why Halhi is suggesting that we have multiple choices. We have different tastes and personalities.

Quoting George Marshall

I almost laughed out loud when I read that. Here's why.

Quoting George Marshall
It's not that I'm forcing this song upon you guys, it's that it's the song I believe fits the group and the essence of the group most.

I read that as:
"I'm not forcing this on you, I'm just not letting you pick a different one. Also, I, not the majority of the people here, am the essence of the group, so we will pick the song I, not the majority, like best."

Quoting George Marshall
At this point, it literally is completely up to me. I am fully aware of how much I sound like a dictator, except for the fact that I said I am willing to change the theme song if I think it fits better than the current one.

I read that as:
"I am not completely a dictator because I'm letting YOU choose the song I want (but not the song you want."

Quoting George Marshall
No voting is gonna be aloud for this, only me and my personal bias. I am completely open for ideas, and I know people are going to start hammering me with links, so I guess I better get to it, eh?

I read that as:
"You're free to have any song, as long as I approve. therefore, you can have any song I like (The ones you don't) and none of the songs you like. But I'm completely open to ideas!"


Yeah, it would have been a sour laugh.
Sorry if this seems overly harsh, but I really don't see the significance for a set theme song, nor the reason for your overreaction to our attempts to change it.

Why don't we let each member pick the song they think complements their particular intro's feel?

(And if not, then how's this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5S-AjPDjgM or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRo1a7H2Cco)
