Hello and welcome to the Bionicle Display's second Bio-BuildOff-Athon.

This contest is open to all Bionicle builders. Even if you think your skills may not be that great, you may surprize yourself.
None the less join up and who knows how amazing you can be!

Bio-BuildOff-Athon Guidelines, please read.
Contest set up and how it will work.

Also reading past contest rounds can be an excelant way to see contest submissions done correctly.

~1) To start it off there will be an entry round where contestants enter a creation. This is to show that everyone who enters, understands the guidelines. If by the due date there is an odd number of contestants, the entry round will end when one more contestant enters and it becomes and even number of contestants.

~2) Each round after will be a contestant versus contestant elimination round with a theme to build to.

~3) Each round will be 5 days. On a Monday a theme will be announced, builders have until Friday night at 12 midnight MocPages time to submit. If their submission is dated for the Saturday or is not submitted at all, they will be disqualified and their opponent wins by default.
~4) Saturday and Sunday will be for the judges to vote on one person of the pairings.

~5) The contest will run for as long as it will take until there are only two remaining contestants who will go head to head in the most challenging theme the judges can come up with. The winner will then gain bragging rights to being the winner of the second Bio-BuildOff-Athon.


For the contestants, when submitting a creation you need to follow the following guidelines for it be acceptable.

~1) It has to be a new creation not a previously built one.

~2) This is a Bionicle focused competition, but other forms of Lego is allowed to be used sparingly. If because Lego íbricksí are used in such a way it distracts from the Bionicle creation, you may not be favoured.

~3) Photoshop and parts modification is not allowed. We are looking at the skills of using Bionicle pieces and the imagination of builders to achieve the theme.

~4) White screens are suggested but not necessary. Itís the Moc we will be looking at not your photography skills, but it has to be clear enough to see the creation clearly.

~5) When you submit your entry you need to include these for it to be acceptable:
-A. When uploading your creation please have it titled ďBio-BuildOff-Athon Round(the number of the round you are entering) Vs (Your Opponentís Name)
-B. At the top of your description please include a link to your Opponentís Home Page as well as the round topic page, and a copy of the themeís description.
-C. In the Roundís topic post a link to your submission as well as the name of your opponent.

~6) As long as it is following the theme, any form of creation is accepted. Youíre encouraged to not just show off your building abilities but all of your creative imagination.

~7) Only post in a round topic if you are submitting an entry. All other posts will be deleted. If you wish to make comments or ask questions please do in the Discussion topic for the contest.
~8) Look to previous Round topics for examples of proper submissions.


For the judges to equally understand their duties.

~1) Themes will be decided in turn by the judges for when they start a round. Judge number one picks, then next round judge number two, then three and repeat.

~2) On the Monday after voting the next judge in turn will create a new topic labelling it Bio-BuildOff-Athon Round (number of round). The winners of the weekend voting will then be randomly pared and listed.

~3) The round topics will be structured as followed.
(Theme for the round. It is both a challenge to build the best as well as to come up with your own interpretation of the theme if it is not a familiar one to you.)
(Any further explanation for the theme if the Judge wishes to.)
(list of pairings for this round. This is to be made in any way so that it is purely random, this ensures fairness to all contestants)

~4) On the Saturday due date and Sunday if need be, each judge must vote on one person of the pairings in an obvious way. This way only one of the two contestants will be a clear winner and no ties are possible.

There arenít any set criteria except for the theme itself which leaves it open to interpretation. So build as you see fit.

You know what? I think for the next contest (I'm guessing there will be a next one), we could make the entry round MOc an actual advertising MOC. Could gather more people, since its seeing to be a problem in these first two, even tough the second already have more contestants than the first.

To simply make a creation to advertise the contest? Well that's why everyone is to submit properly with the title and all to in a way advertise the contest. Also to me, if we can get more people to the contest each time, then it's a win to me.

Sounds like a great idea to me! They kind of already are though, with the name being Bio-BuildOff-Athon and all... What exactly did you have in mind?

I'm thinking more of a free theme, only to advertise the contest. You know, with big capital letters and stuff, and posted in every group. Its more like a big advertising mission, could be before the entry round, actually. Maybe we could use past themes of the contest, to show exemples of how it is.

Alrighty then I'll set you as Judge number 1, I'll still help clarify questions and so forth in this topic but otherwise I'll be a regular contestant. I'll have to wait till next time to try out some of my more odd/challenging thems for next time.

Also no problem I enjoy helping out and Bionicle building is something I'm passionate about.

Heh I actually have a creation in mind I could build for the entry round, has to do with the story I build to but it'd work.

Don't worry, I'll delete this comment soon once that's been sorted out. I just wanted to ask if by 'titan' you meant a Bionicle titan (hero) like Brutaka, Takanuva etc or any large, non-toa sized moc.

Thanks.


Exactly,around the size of Brutaka.Heck,even something like Axxon would count,as long as it looks like a titan,and not like a toa.Of course,the bigger the better.Sorry for not putting the link on the tread,it has been inserted there now.

Good theme for a start, lucky I was already thinking of making a multi-limb titan for a while, now there's an occasion to make me do it.
Don't worry Chessy, I think you have plenty of potential to do a nice titan.
Anyway, I think the matches were picked by random, so its not Berial's fault or whatever.

There's no trouble.It's just that your opponent is a quiter that quit this the contest because,aparently,he's not capable of building a titan,and I stated what you must do in order to get yourself to the next round.Pretty straight foward.

Technically a titan is a rather large bionicle, it could be anything, heck, I am building a rather large kraata mech that is quadpedel, but ATRAKS, the lowest you can get is 25 cm, roughly 10 inches, the lego set Gresh is about that tall, this is fairly easy.

The only way you get better is with challenges like these.I have found myself in the same situation as yours many other times,but I never gave up,I always tried different things and in the end I came up with a more than satisfactory result.The bigger you build,the harder it is,but the bigger the challenge,the more rewarding it is when you can beat it.See one of my mocs,Azeroth,for instance.Now take a look at Thermyndor.You will see that the last is much better than the first,but only because the first was ever built and the first place.He was a hard moc,but I didn't give up,and that's why I was ever able to build Thermyndor,although,in a way,he has nothing to do with Azeroth.Get what I'm saying?Just try,you are a promising builder and I think you have the potential to surpass this challenge.

Just so you get the message ;)

The legs ARE custom, I cannot think of a new way to build them because I am short on parts, besides, if I am just going to move on to the next round, why should I rebuild the legs and go through the trouble of uploading them to my page? Not everyone can come up with something nobody's thought of before. Also, it would take away from the style I built it in. Sorry if I am being rude, but I am being stretched between two contests. One of which I have to build seven Bio-MOCS for. It is very chaotic and I am not willing to quit any of the contests I am currently in.

First off,his legs aren't custom.They are made of ready limbs that come in official sets and stuff.Second,the limb must be custom,not something that I have never seen in my life.In fact,you can use custom design of lego itself,presented in titans such as axxon,brutaka,takanuva,and others.Third,that other contest your in doesn't even has a day to end.I also made very clear what you were to do since your opponent quit the contest.I don't think I am being unfair here,you could have come up with anything that just met the rules.Plus that thing of yours didn't count for both contests you made it,so there it goes your attemp to kill time.

Now,I'm against the wall here,because while I would be too harsh on you by not letting you go to the next round just because your moc didn't met the rules,I'm also being too nice with by letting you move on to the next around,since you didn't even care to pay attention to the rules and make an entry that met them.Plus,you were quite rude,so I don't really know what to do here.

I am sorry for being rude. First, the contest I entered it in is accepting it, I just entered it in the wrong category, so I moved it. Second, not everyone is as good as you are at building, so I cannot be expected to build something that would impress you easily. Also I EXPLAINED that I hardly had any pieces left. I know you are trying to push me to my limit to make something incredible, but sometimes overkill is bad. If you make an bionicle insect, would you go for giant mechanical robo-legs or would you make them thinner and more spindly? It is very challenging to make spindly legs that are custom. The mech splits into two robotic insects, one is the upper half that is more tank-like and powerful. the other is the bottom half that is more spindly and faster for flight. Understand? Please, when the second round comes, I will do better.

Ok,I'm not going to drag this furthermore.My good nature doesn't allow me to hold you back,but my principles do.That's something of a clash.So I will be fair,and won't leave it up to me,I'll leave up to the other contestants,since they are the ones going up against you.If for them it's fine,then ok,you're in.But if not,then you're out.That is if any of them manifest themselves about this,if none of them do,then you're still in.

To me its OK. I mean, I'd rather prefer he change the legs(at least the upper part), but he was going to pass to the next round anyway, and its pretty hard to make a custom titan, even harder in only one week(my large MOCs usually take 1-2 whole weeks, and college takes a lot of extra time).

To me its OK. I mean, I'd rather prefer he change the legs(at least the upper part), but he was going to pass to the next round anyway, and its pretty hard to make a custom titan, even harder in only one week(my large MOCs usually take 1-2 whole weeks, and college takes a lot of extra time).

Seriously, has the due date been moved yet?
Can i have your opinion on my entry? the legs are not exactly custom, so I am wondering if you would object to me continuing in this contest. :)

No problem.In fact,since until now we got zero entries,I'm thinking of extending this one day or two,maybe three,and then giving the rest of next week for you guys as free time,since you and Infrax seem to be really needing it.

I posted my moc...yesterday i believe.

onto the other issue..rakashi party, I would prefer you change the legs, but yeah you can continue on for all i care. At least if he continues we get another contestant for the round.
It's called Insanity and its linked too on the topic...i hope.
Enjoy.
(i hope it meets your standard beriel)
Also its probably my most detailed and best moc ive ever made.

If requested by the contestants,and if not objected by others,the due date could be moved.But up until now the due date stills the same.I see,however,that how things are moving along I will probably have to strain this a few more days.

I'm aware of that.I'm so aware of that,that I actually commented on it and made a note on it about two of his arms that were not custom,telling you to rebuild them and post the pictures of him again with his arms rebuilt,so he would meet the rules.

I finished the new arms, so if you would like to see if they are good enough, it would be appreciated. Also each arm only uses 1 of those HF.2.0 long limb peices. the bits for the wrist come from some older sets i believe.
Well anyways, im glad i fixed that up because the photos and moc look better now.
one more thing...why cant i post my moc up in the group?

I agree about postponing the date, I haven't finished mine yet and i'll have little time today. Make it until the end of the weekend, I think its a good date for every round, sice most people build in the weekends.

I know,but still,this time it'll have to be adapted.Most of contestants are getting trouble to finish their entries in time,and asking to give them a little time so they can breath a bit before the next round.So I'm going to strain this till the end of this weekend or monday,and judge all creations in the middle of next week.Then,next round should begin friday or saturday depending on how things go.

Hmmm, not sure why everyone is giving up... Not enough time, other contests, lack of pieces? Maybe a combination of all these things?

Or prehaps lack of motivation? Maybe if there was some kind of prize for the runner-up and winner more people would enter.

What to do for a prize though? Any ideas?


I don't know. I would say a promotion as moderator or something, but I think this kind of prize is for the bigger contests, the ones hosted by the admins. maybe a certain number of comments from the judges, but dont think it would be much fair...
Maybe a cookie...

I'm sorry, it's just, with exams and such, it's harder for me to be online until thursday this week, when they end. But here's what I was thinking:
I have taken pictures, but I'm not at the moment able to put my advertisement MOC together, because of exams. Kai also seems busy, and I think John is too. Also, Mr. Yee seems busy, and I guess, it's just been really hard to keep up. So this is what I suggest:
Wait another 2 weeks for school to finish. Have a very long entry round. I won't be here for July, I'm going world travelling (yay, and getting new LEGO, and bionicle), and won't be back until August. So, first, the rounds. I think we should have a wild card spot, so even if you lose, there's a spot for all the beaten applicants. This spot will have a theme (picked by one of the judges) and the best one will be allowed back in. It gives people a chance to get back in, you never know. It's like my classics teacher always says (he drops our lowest mark every term as long as we're consistent) "You never know, they might have been having a bad day." This way, people who maybe weren't having a good day, have a chance to prove themselves again. You never know, someone might surprise you and beat your entry Kai.
As far as rounds go, same as we had them set up previously.
I can almost guarantee that we will have more applicants after I put up my advertisement moc. I can put it in all the teenage groups (which I am a part of), and I have a strange feeling that we will almost triple our applicants.
As far as prizes and cookies go, yes a cookie, but I was also thinking : why not have the judges collaborate and compete following a topic chosen by the winner and runner-ups. Not only that, but I will personally build a titan (I have very many bio. bricks screaming build me)that the winner will be allowed to put on his/her homepage as poof of victory. Also, I think some tother prizes might be in order... let me know what you guys think?

I like the idea of someone building mocs, that are placed on peoples pages as prizes, and sigsn of victory.
say a golden titan of the winner,
then a silver toa for second,
and third gets a bronze matoran?
and these mocs,get images posted and placed on the winners pages?

Gee, found this a bit late.
This is probably asking a bit much, but is there any chance that I could join in at this late stage? I'll even build a Soldiers of War entry if you want proof that I'm serious about this.
But hey, if I'm too late, 'tis all cool. Just thought this would be a good opportunity to start using MOCpages a bit more :]

Alrighty first there is a few adjustments I'd like to make. Any comments on these or suggestions for other changes that are needed for improvment.

1. Not so much a rule change but when ever the entry rounds starts, the guilde lines on how to properly submit a creation is to be pasted in the first post <_<

2. The no comments in the round topic will be scrapped, I decided to let it slide this contest and see what happened. It was no problem to see where the entry posts were and ect.

3. Rounds will be officially changed to 7 day rounds starting the day the theme is released. If all submissions are submitted before the 7 days are up the round will close once the judges have cast their votes and winners are decided. The next day a new round will start. If all sumissions are submitted, the 8th day votes will be made on creations submitted and the next day a new round will start.

How does this set up for rounds seem?

The only way rounds will be extended is for extreme circumstances such is exams falling onto that week or other such things that affect 50% or so of the contestants.

So how does all this sound people? Come on lemme know so we can get this crazy locomotive back onto the tracks of epicness O-o
There have been sooo many sign ups for being notified of when the new contest starts I can't wait to get the next contest started up XD There's a reason it's called a Marathon folks.

I pretty much agree with it. Honestly, My head is really full of stuff because of the Bio-Cup, but I agree that we should continue the BBOA. Lets just wait for thing sto calm down.

Sounds good to me, but should we wait until the Bio Cup is finished? I'm pretty sure a lot of people wanting to be notified for the BBOA are already in the Bio Cup. The Bio Cup only happens once a year as well, so there will be all the time in the world after that.


Well dang. How long do you think that will take? If so I'll just wait and check back with the group later on.
