The 500 Members Contest: July 1 - August 1
Join to comment
 Group admin 
At last the newest ABS Forever Contest is here, the 500 Members Contest! 500 - the HTTP status code for Internal Server Error, an all too frequent sight over the last few months here on MOCpages. Alas, numbers like this have delayed previous ABS Forever contests, and caused much grief. However, with the installation of new, faster servers, we won't see this problem again! Now, onto the contest.
You're tasked with building a scene which shows something to do with this glitch - a kid waiting at his computer to upload something to MOCpages, Sean Kenney buying the new servers, the old server's decrepit home, whatever you can think off! In order to be a contestant, your entry MUST have a link to the ABS Forever group in the write-up, and you MUST post a link to your entry in this thread. The winner will be immortalized in the ABS Forever hall of fame, be offered the position of moderator, and their creation will serve as the buddy icon for the group. Questions? Ask here, then get building!

Awesome. I'll try to join. But just as a question, I'm saying I will, but if I win, what happens? I'm already moderator. Do I get bragging rights instead?

Great to hear! Um... Good question. I might give you the honour of choosing the next contest and choosing its winner or something to that effect.

Interesting. I dunno if I will join, I have certain, uh, restrictions thanks to a certain carrier.....

If there is any way I can hold a judging position, I will be more than happy to do my best to take that up.

Haha, that ship certainly looks like a piece hog.
I appreciate the offer to judge, but for rather informal contests like this I make the decision based on my gut and what looks best as a thumbnail, and couldn't really give any judging criteria. However, I'll definitely keep your offer in mind and if I ever host a competition which is more serious you'll be the first to hear from me.

Yeah, my LEGO schedule's been demolished thanks to the carrier.....it can chock that up as its first kill! Thank you for considering me; ever need anything, drop me a line.

Is this contest still going? Also, I'd like to point out that there's a bunch of LDD on the front page of the group.

Thanks for the notice, and no, the contest has ended. Due to lack of entries, it will be closed and a new contest will be opened in the next week or so.
