The judges for the games are all admins of the group.
They are Matt, Dennis, Tyler, Nick, Mark and myself.
Some of these will also be judges for the MIT and some won't. That will be decided later. The person leading the charge in the MIT will be Hans D. with me as his backup. Over in the MIT, Hans' word is LAW and what he says, goes.
Thank you again to all the judges who will be working so hard to make this all come together!
I really expected more entries with the prizes being offered; however, this will have to do. There are already some fantastic entries so far, and this year’s MocOlympics should still be a real cutthroat show of outstanding Lego prowess.
Even with the lower amount of mocs in play, it will still take us time to judge, tally, recheck, and seed the field. In other words, DON’T ASK. We will keep you updated on the status of who placed where when we get it all in. Round 2 will start on September 19th at midnight. That will give us enough time for all the official business, so be patient until then. We will be here to answer all your questions as long as they are reasonable and do not involve the words, “When will you post the scores?”
Got it? Good.
Thank you all for giving us a difficult job in judging, as it should be your primary goals. We wish all of you the best of luck and truly can’t wait for the pandemonium that is called Round 2.
Just came in to wish you good luck, we're all counting on you.
And, to remind all of you that Round 2 ends tonight at midnight. I closed Round 1 after a thirty minute grace period due to the uploader issues last go. I will NOT be as generous anymore. Thirty minutes past midnight is NOT going to fly. There will be a minor grace period as always because I'm not one to care much about what time it is. But the emphasis there is "minor". For contrast, I consider thirty exasperatingly major. UNDERSTAND? Good.
As of this posting, I count twenty four entries out of sixty four contestants. As simple math dictates, that leaves forty entries that can be expected today. DO NOT wait until the last minute citing some sort of silly strategic purpose (nice alliteration there.) Get your entries in as soon as possible! Uploader traffic will get hairy today, so don't be THAT guy.
That certainly went much more smoothly than Round 1. Thank you to the Mocpages version of Roy and Moss, guess someone tried turning the uploader off and on again.
Yessireebob, Round two is in the books and that book reads, “To be continued” for some and “The end” for others. There were some fine entries here, definitely a few which are keepers. There can be, as you all well know, only one victor per category. We see that there are some that will move on unchallenged. Missed opportunities to dance on the big stage are your own regrets; live with it, for none of us are interested in your song any longer. We also have noticed that a couple of you decided to put a fight. This pleases us. Hopefully as much as it pleases all of you for it is that competitiveness which drives all of us to greater realizations about our own abilities. So, bully for you!
We judges will begin our job immediately and give you the simple result on your mocs. Sleep allowing and the ibuprofen lasting, we will complete our side of the bargain as soon as possible.
We will also keep you updated on the time for Round 3 to begin in the status bar on the home page.
Fine job builders, keep it up and have fun! Take a breather for a bit, ya’ll deserve it. ;) Permalink
