Welcome to Round 1 of the 2014 MEMO.

This is the sixth time I've had to rewrite this, seeing as MocPages failed the first 5 times, so I'm just going to keep this brief.

This round is a Free-For-All. No matchups, no categories.

You can build anything you please from the Middle Earth universe.

You will be judged out of 10 points by all six judges, possibly 7 if I decide to add another, which is entirely possible.

This round will end on the 24th of July.

Please title your entry - MEMO R1: (whatever you want here).

Include a link to the group homepage at the tops of your entry.

Good luck, and let the games begin!

Not that I know of. Personally speaking, I'm a purist, so it's probably best to avoid them to avoid losing points from me

So how many judges will dock points for non-purist pieces?

| July 7, 2014, 7:45 am
Is there any possibility that we might get more points if we do a purist build about something from one of the books? Or is it gonna be more about the build than anything?

I won't be giving any 'more' points for a build being purist, or if it's from one of the books.
So yeah, basically it's all about the build than anything.

For me, it's more about the build, although I am a purist and might take off points for non-purist builds (within reason - a few accesories is fine, lots of modified pieces not fine).

Unfortunately, Mocpages is giving me trouble and won't let me upload photos. It says my "security settings" are denying me access, even though i've tried to upload from 4 different computers on 2 different wifi networks (standard and basic uploader). Hopefully someday my creation will make it here, but sadly not for this contest. Best of luck to everyone else!

It sounds like an issue I have had. Have you tried the "simple uploader"?

Go to the java control panel on your computer, under certificates or something like that there will be a place that allows you to manually allow individual sites. Type in both mocpages.com and www.mocpages.com This works on Firefox at least.

Alternately you could get a Flickr account and embed the pictures from there, although then you won't have a main picture. Hope this helps.

Hey judges, my entry has had a couple complaints about how dark the pictures are. Could I take a couple new pics and replace the old one? Or is that against the rules?

It's prolly fine, but I'm not a judge so don't act on my account.

By "end on the 24th of July" is meant midnight, right? Well, where I live midnight is 3 hours after MOCpages midnight. Does the round end local time for each of us? Because I'm just about finished - got home an hour ago - (and I must say this is some of my best landscaping and rockwork ever) but it takes more than 30 minutes to photograph and upload the pictures.

Feel free to just upload it. I'll accept anything that wasn't added by when I get on tomorrow. You can finish up and enter, even if it's past midnihgt MOCpages time. :)

We're still waiting on two judges to complete their scoring. If they don't do it soon, Andrew may total the scores we already have.

Working on that now. I got my sonic Screwdriver in the mail today, so I've been goofing off with that for most of the day. :P
