Wow! Nice job on the contest topics, and it looks like we already have someone signed up... Are you, Johann and I going to make our own entries/voting/whatever it is meant to be threads whenever we want before the 3rd? Because mine may be up later than the 3rd...

Well seeya! I'm off to do my exams now :)

I'd say we make the contest threads on the 4th, just to give people time to sign up and us to have our themes and contestants chosen, since our time frame appears short now for preparing things. In that case time frame would be from 5th (starting the next day) to 19th. Is this a deal?

I've had a thought on my contest already. If you have nothing against it, I'll have the theme of fusion element toas. (Example: water + fire = steam or earth + fire = lava. This kind of idea :D)

There's a lot more people coming in the next days most likely, so think of your contest themes first, then let's sort out our contestants on thursday/friday :)

Actually, they give us options. What of them the contest will be about we choose... Also, not everyone's theme will match with theis desired oponent's...

Johann's got the point there. As much as I see it is that we variate the preferred themes people give us. Something 'normal' would be boring, eh? :) So I have already thought of the fusion element toa theme, so that is my variation of the given theme. I can take in that case the 'toa' theme on my contest. We'll see who can I have against each other.

Ahhh, right. Alrighty then maybe my variention for Makuta will be... Outcasts? Former toa/turaga? I'm really not sure...

Makuta outcasts sounds awesome in my ear :D

I have an idea for the titan theme, about non-humanoid titans, or even hal-animal titans. I don't know about you, but I think there's enough humanoids on this pages...

Hey, just a thought, can we enter as well? I don't think we would have an unfair advantage being hosts, it's just my holidays are coming up and it would be really cool to try Bio-BuildOffs myself :)

Of course! Isn't it obvious? Being a host doesn't limit our ability to take part along with others :)

Though I won't be joining for the first rounds, my 3rd period began and I'm having work to do. I possibly might build something in between my free time. (I just got an awesome idea, which I hope I'll build :D) I wish for as little homework as possible for this period :D (And every other periods too :P)

You could name it like this:

Bio-BuilOffs - Mr. Whatever x Mr. Something

You don't need to put your name in it, people will know you're hosting it.

Yes, but I meant for the actual topic name... I can't change it once it has been named and many contests will be hosted within the topic...


Oh, I got your point. Maybe this way:

Bio-BuildOffs - Pool #1

or this:

Bio-BuildOffs - Kai's Pool

Or something like that, I'm not sure.

Prehaps Dach will also have some suggestions, it might be nice to wait for him...

Who knew something so simple would end up being such a pain :)

:)

I'm thinking the title would be more like 'Bio-BuildOffs: Contest 001 - theme name'.

Perhaps Kai would have contest 001, Johann 002 and me 003. Maybe the next rounds after these are then 004-006, eh? We can keep on track on how many contests we've had :) Maybe at 50 or 100 contests we can have something special :D

Like it? :)

Oh also, it's probably time to share the contestants. I'll be looking possible candidates for the toa theme.

Ummm, I'm not sure how that would work... After you have created a new topic you can't change it's name... It makes sense if we have that within threads but the actual names (like Bio-BuidOffs - disscusion, Bio-BuildOfs - Sign Up etc) of the topics need to be something a little less specific...

Sorry if I'm not being clear, I'm not sure how to explain it any further...

Your idea of something special after 50 or 100 is great though and every thing else sounds pretty good to.

I think I understand. The name has to be bit more narrow. 'BuildOff 001 - theme name' maybe?

What Kai is saying is that we'll only create three match topics for the rest of the whole contest, each one for one host. So, we need some name that cabn last for more matches to come. I think like this will be good:

Bio-BuilOffs - Pool #1

So, we can annouce who will go against who and in what pool, like:

Mr. Brown is assigned against Mr.Pink, in Pool #3.

Or something like that...

Ah, I see. In that case... hmm... Something basic I guess like 'Bio-BuildOffs - Group 1/Pool 1/Battle Group 1 (though I don't understand the 'pool' word :P)

So each contest topic is cleaned after each contest.

We better choose soon, if we're going to have the contests up tomorrow. I'd vote for the classic 'Bio-BuildOffs - Group 1', no one can misunderstand it.

Also I've been looking a bit for the candidates for my toa themed contest. Most suitable ones are:
-Hank Hansen
-BobaFett 2
-Gorast Rockshun
-Callan Lord of Fire

There's more but these had more specifically preferred the toa theme and the contestants might need to be balanced. There can be smaller matches though if there's few preferring the unusual stuff, and I can take more people on my contest if necessary.

7 more people need placing ;)

So, since I'm willing to make the titan theme, the ones that could be in it are these:

Lord Oblivion
Chris Yee(he could actually fit in any category, since he asked for anything)
Adam Toth
Akara the Great
Baron Bon Ben~ (same case as Chris)

However, I wold need to balance these. Also, lord Oblivion and Toa Phosporuys want to duel with each other in the Makuta category, so I guess I'll let him to Kai.

As a metter of fact, since Von Ben asked for Chris Yee, and both were vague about the theme, I could put them together in a compltely different category (I got interested in this "greebled to death" one), so...

For the topic name of the contests though, my vote would go to 'Bio-BuildOffs - Pool #1' :)

Fine, we can have the 'Pool #1' if Johann accepts :P

Yeah, of course I accept it. So, let's do it...

One more question: About the one who won't get any match, what we do to them? Also, want me to delete the posts from the builders who got their matches?

No one should be left out. I can take Karson and Owen, since they're quite equal with the others I have and both prefer toas. A bit larger match, but doesn't matter :]

Don't delete the sign up posts. It's up to themselves to delete their post if they're not willing to participate the next games.

It's a little sad to say this, but my computer broke down. So I won't be able to be online much, thus I can't be hosting for the time 'til my computer is repaired.

I'm at my brothers laptop at the moment, but I won't be able to use it much, since it's my bro's.

I try to atleast be there to count the votes of pool #1, to finish what I started, but other than that, I need a replacement for the next contests or pool #1 will be closed for a period. (Hopefully you'll have pool #4 by then, so it wouldn't bother as much.)

So, I hope you figure something, since I'll have a little vacation from the internet.

Happy mocing and merry upcoming christmas =]

Can I be your replacement? It will be a lot more trouble to take out my TECHNIC LEGO again, and I'm pretty free this break.

Also, I'll be traveling this Sunday.. I'm not shure till when I'll be out, but its probably the end of January. I will keep coming back here everyime I can, and might be abl to deal with these first contests too, but I can't promise anything. So, it may be needed some assistance. I think Boba and Berial could help. Someone watch over the pool #2 when I'm out and them, when it over, they take care of our respective pools... This may delay the pool #4, unless someone accepts to deal with two pools at the same time, or another person volunteers...

But i'll try to come here and, if I find enough time, maybe it won't be needed any replacement...
