good day to all competitors!

On behalf of Mechman, bones, and r8, I just want to make a quick statement here.

The contest is only two days away!!! actually less than 48 hours.

The pool will be opened at the VERY BEGINNING (12:01 am) of friday the 26th. That is when you can start building.

I think a good idea, especially for those of you who have joined recently, would be to review the whole OFFICIAL RULES thread before then. It's a great resource for everything related to the scoring, categories, judges, rules, etc about the contest.

Also, a quick note: we judges will try to be as prompt as we can when releasing our ratings. BUT, please be understanding. There are a TON of contestants and there will be many MOCs for us to review. We all have jobs, families, and other whatnots that will take time from the judging. Just be assured: EVERY MOC submitted to the pool will be judged by every judge. It may just take a couple days for everyone to get to it, ok?

Also also, Mechman will create a thread in this group for VALID questions and concerns regarding your scores. That will be up shortly.

is everyone else as excited as I am!?!

oh we didnt tell you? you have to be blindfolded while building those categories. And in classic mech, yours has to be remote controlled and able to solve trigonometry problems while firing less-than-lethal beanbag rounds.

I'm a boy, don't worry about not understanding my name, even if I told my real life friends "Lionytai" they won't even understand.

They do, but they very. Some mecha have treads, some do not. The major difference is the robotic nature of mecha.

this is just a note. remember, the pool OPENS tonight just after midnight. however, that is when people are supposed to START building.

so...what I'm getting at is...ah hem...if anyone may have uhhh...accidentally....put together a mech for the competition before build time starts, than those people may ummm...cough....wish to wait a while before uploading them, right? because, ah hem, it would be rather suspicious if we notice mechs being uploaded at 12:05...? right? Not that that would actually happen. that would be silly. But it sure would be suspicious if it did. Yes im sure glad no one will do that, forcing us to DQ any mechs right off the bat. Yes, luckily I dont have to worry. ok good.

way to go speedy gonzales. BUT, you forgot to designate which category your mech is an entry for. I also posted on the mech so you'd be sure to see it.

And that goes for everyone! remember! please put the category of your entry either in the title or at least at the beginning of your description.

Once you get your category on there Jake I'll be sure to judge
