Metal Legion: Why are you guys holding back! There are about 15 or 16 members in this group, and only two members have actually posted! My hands twitch for want of bricks! Your inaction in the face of impending doom is baffling to me. Don't you realize that if we do not post aggressively, other factions, lurking on other worlds will perceive us as weak? As ripe for attack? As a hollow Legion? I urge you all, POST and LINK to this contest! To arms! Speak not of MOCs you are working on! Speak not MOCs you can't yet build! For the honor of the Legion, speak not at all, but build and post! Attack!

Mr. Eckerson, Your all over it man! I saw that you put up one entry, and then BAM, there were two entries. I am going to see if I can get Mr. Goldman to stand up and fight like an ape (that is to say, post an entry). If we can get one or two more guys to post, I think your contest will start to gain some inertia. By the way, I hope you don't mind me making all this noise. I can't build, but I do want to help. Attack!

Unfortunately, one of the entries is not on a 16x16, its a spaceship.....?
I guess I will have to delete it from the group.
Mark, we need to start rating the contest entries, alright?

Mr. Flynn I would advise you not to be so quick on the trigger! I dig rules and usually, they should be enforced (just like you are doing it man), but remember, this is the first Metal Legion contest, and you are trying to encourage people to participate in Metal Legion too! So the guy entered a space ship...ok...he can't win because of the rules...but hey, it's a guy who want's to participate right? If I were trying to make a group more popular, I would just let him stay, and say something like: "Hey man, welcome to the contest, nice ship by the way, but in order to really compete, you have to be on a base plate. Maybe build a landing pad for it, and re-enter?" Don't be in a hurry to press the delete gun to his head and pull the trigger man. I know your doing your job, and I'm not trying to throw stones. I'm no admin, I'm no boss guy. I'm just throwing in my two cents. Attack!

I agree Michael. The only reason I deleted his entry was because it wasn't a on a 16x16. I wouldn't of minded keeping his entry in, but what are people gonna think. Is someone gonna want to join a contest where the judges don't enforce the rules, probably not. Whenever I enter a contest and a judge doesn't call an overhang on a creation or something like that, I get a little ticked that they're not enforcing the rules.
But we'll see, maybe this contest will be a success.

Mr Flynn, I agree. Being an Amin is tough, and you are enforcing the rules. It's tough to ballance the need for law and order against the possibility of hurting some guys feelings. I read your review of the MOC, and I think you were pretty diplomatic. Well done. Just remember that a few encouraging words go a long way when you have to give sombody the boot. Your in a tough job, and your doing it well.
