How this will work... hopefully
 Group admin 
Ok, first off, sorry I've been out of the loop the past week, I was on vacation. I do have to admit that I'm a little confused here. The group has 65 members but only 45 people have signed up for the games... strange. If you're a member of this group and haven't signed up in the official thread, please do so so I can keep track of everyone.

Now then, assuming that every one who is a member is going to play, we have all the players we need. To make the brackets work correctly, we need 64 players, and JD Luse is my alternate player in case I need a fill in. JD is the ONLY alternate I'm using so please don't ask to be an alternate.

I'm going to try to leave a comment on one moc from every player here just to give the next step in the games. You'll need to email me at mocolympics@gmail.com with your name. Please be SURE to add your name as some email names and mocpages names are different and I can't keep track of who is who... had that issue with the mocies and it wasn't any fun.

Your email that you are sending me is your "placement" in the brackets. Simply put, the first and second people to email me will be going against each other, the third and fourth and so on until all 64 players are signed up. Please don't "hold off" to try to get a better placing, email me as soon as you read this so I can get everyone in the brackets.

While I'm waiting for your emails, I'll be working on the categories for each round. I'm going to do my best to make sure that no one has to play in the same cateogory twice no matter how far you make it, but I can't promise. I'll do what I can.

What ARE the categories you ask? Not gonna tell ya just yet. And WHO are the judges? Again... shh, not yet.

Alright, stop reading and get to emailing me so I can get us going! Still looking at starting the second week of August, give or take a day or two. Good luck everyone!

Phipson, can you save me a spot? I cannot access gmail, yahoo, hotmail, or any web-based e-mail from work. I will not be able to respond until later tonight, but I will e-mail as soon as I get home. Thanks!

hey, don't worry about the timing of the email. This is just for your "placement" in the brackets. If you email me first, third or 22nd it just means that THAT is what number you are in the games. So emailing later tonight is not a problem.

No, just put that you are lord star blazer in your email. (some emails don't say lordstarblazer@gmail.com or something like that) You should have signed up already in the official sign up thread.

Then you can't play. I'd love to have you, but that's how the sign up works. If you're worried about your emial being "used improperly" ask anyone around here about who I am and how I treat everyone on mocpages. This is my "home" and I treat it as such. If you still don't want to sign up, no harm, no foul. The choice is up to you.

The simple solution here is to ask your mom to check it out and let her make the decision. Please let her read the following:


Mrs. D, I am a police officer and I completely agree with you that your son should NOT be sharing his email address with anyone that he doesn't know on the internet. I can assure you however, that by sending an email to the account that I set up for this competition, that is the ONLY thing that the email will be used for. The way it's set up, is the order that the emails arrive in is the order in which players will be placed into the game. ie: the first and second emails will compete against each other, the third and fourth and so on. I have a reputation here on mocpages as being one of the "good guys" and I'd like to keep it that way. The decision is yours of course and as a father myself, I respect the decision of any parent that they make in regards to the well being of their child. We would really like your son to compete in the competition and hope that you'll allow him to do so.

Thank you for your consideration,
~Chris.
