No one can see this page until we think it is perfected.

OK. First things first, Can you make me an admin so I can control the site a little more?
Also, youspelt a few things wrong in the rules and we want the rules to be VERY clear cause people never understand rules. :)

Sorry I was in a rush to get some print down.
Ps. ''you are now an admin.''

Thanks. Maybe change the group photo so it says ML CONTEST #1?
That way people wont get confused.

Alright, the contest is under way (though I don't know how many people are actually participating). It would be great if people told their friends about this contest.

I think there are to many contests going on et the present, and most of the sci fi people are building missions for the new group iron legacy..

Yeah!

This is a strange group. It’s a contest group, and there are 12 members…but nobody wants to enter any of their MOCs. Why don't I enter a MOC? Easy: Right now I’m far from home and have no Lego to build with (that really slows you down!). But what about you 11 other members? What's the deal? Mr. Eckerson, Mr. Flynn, get your guns up! I KNOW you guys have each built and posted Metal Legion MOCs recently…so get them up in here! Light this candle already! Metal Legion? More like “Stealth Legion”. Build! Post! Compete! Excel! Attack!

Not until we get some more entries. How do we spread the word without seeming obnoxious?

Ask some good people to join? I don't know.
Maybe we can comment on other sci-fi stuff and at the end of the comment say "can you check out this contest if you've got time?" or something like that.

Mr. Flynn, Mr. Eckerson, Mr.E, you all need to become ambassadors! Go out and post LOTS of POSITIVE REVIEWS on OTHER peoples MOCs. You should each go out and hit 7 or 8 different builders (as least). Leave GOOD feedback. I mean, really intelligent, honest feedback. Not "Epic MOC, join my contest!". Look hard, think hard, review hard. This is hard work, but you guys know how to do it. You want to build a good group? This is the "Building" part. You can mention the contest, but you don’t have to. Close your reviews with links to this contest. Also, be sure to leave reviews on MOCs of people who have entered the contest group, but who haven't posted entries yet (we have a lot of those guys). STAY POSITIVE in your approach. You guys did a pretty good job of explaining why you had to delete that one MOC, but now go and re-invite the builder. Tell him he should build a 16x16 landing pad and re-enter the contest! Be ambassadors. Ambassadors who go out and represent the Metal Legion, and who recruit through leaving quality reviews of other peoples MOCs. You all like reviews. So does everybody else! You guys are making headway, but you can make a lot more. Attack!

Is this like from a movie or something? Where do I need to look to get ideas? Or is this just a machine/war genre?

This is a sci-fi group. Go to the Metal Legion home page if you want to know what your troops should look like.

Mr. Eckerson, Mr. Flynn, Congratulations! You have gotten this group up to 25 members! Well done! Now you should go to EACH of those members and leave a comment on one of THEIR MOCs. It doesn't have to be a Metal Legion MOC. It could be ANY MOC, but it will encourage them to enter the Metal Legion Contest sooner. They are already thinking about it (or they would not be in the group right?) So make sure they know you are glad they joined!

Thats all right! Close to the Metal Legion armor is good enough. We understand that having a specific armor can be hard for those who don't have specific parts.

Is it alright if I use the old Dino Attack chests? You know the ones with all the gear on them. Because I used one of them for my Metal Legion sig fig and it looks cool. And if you don't want me to use those chests for soldiers then could they be smugglers or mercenarys that work for the metal legion troops? Other wise if you don't want me to use those chests at all then I could somehow pick up some BPs next time I go to the store. But I would prefer to save my money for other things. And if you want me to get some BPs then my entry will probably be late. Thanks.;)

Using the Dino Attack torsos is fine. But in the future were gonna try to stay with the regular BP torso.

Sergeant, stop playing 20 questions, get your bricks pressed together and build a MOC. You can use the Dino torsos, you can use storm trooper torsos, you can use Harry Potter Mermaid torsos...They can be soldiers, friends of soldiers, mercenaries, criminals, terrorists, emergency first responders, or an interpretive dance troop...but BUILD and POST! If you want to call yourself Sergeant, then act like one and "Take that hill". Build and post a MOC. Join the few brave souls who have actually done one in this group! Think of it as an elite unit: Military Occupation Command (MOC for short!). BUILD! POST! ATTACK!
