I'm there right now if anyone has any questions before the games start. It's almost 9pm central time USA right now. I'll be there for about another hour and a bit.

The newer, better, MocOlympics chatroom. http://www.mibbit.com/chat/
Enter Esper as the IRC, and #MOColympics as the channel. It is case-sensitive.

Why would I want to use a chatroom where I need to sign up when there's a completely open one already?

Mibbit is a TON better than chatmaker. On mibbit, you can control people because of OPs. You can tell if some is writing or not. And the best part is that mibbit has smiley faces while chatmaker does NOT.

Chris, I have my Creation ready but am having trouble uploading. I tried everything and may have to use another laptop in the meantime if i dont upload it becasue of these technical difficulties by the 23rd will i still be disqualified?


I'm sorry to say that if you don't post by 11:59 on the 23rd, you will be disqualified. I can't make any exceptions especially with this many players. I'm sorry and good luck to you. I hope you get it sorted.

this is a technical dificulty issue, and as it is so early in the 10 deadline, I'd say he isn't bluffing. also, since the majority of MOCs will probably be waited on until the last day, there is also the issue of internet problems. just sudden loses of connection and stuff.

You're not there now so back to the good ol way-
What is Microscale? It may sound silly But I really need to know. Is it like a Miniature version of a bigger ship? Could you clarify ASAP and possibly give me a link, so I can start building right away!

In case no one's answered you yet...I would define microscale as "smaller than minifig scale." It can be any subject.

so is it possible to mix categories? as in, if you got microscale, could you make a classic space moc that's microscale? and if you got classic space, could you make a similar moc?

For some categories, that would work. For example Microscale and mech as seen here:

http://mocpages.com/moc.php/76366

But for some others, not so much. Now that the games have stated, I kinda have to let you guys make a lot of your own decisions, so I'll leave it up to you.

Good luck!

Let's say I got Castle. would I be able to do something similar to this?: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/146659
And would that MOC also count for Black Fantasy or Apoca-Lego?

hey, where's the conversation with the explinations of the themes ?
I want to know more about the genre vehicles,
are imaginative vehicles allowed ? does it have to fit minifigures ?
so far my questions,
I somehow doubt a big 20-gunned pirateship fits in the theme...
