There is a MOCer named Arnas Scheel who wants to join our group. He has no Lego creations yet, and he made a group called "The Wolf Pack." Arik, I noticed that you are the only other member of that group. What should I do? Do I let him join the group now? Or wait until I see a little more activity from him?

um, I'd suggest asking to see a Mech or two from him. this is just a contest group, and as long as he has something Mech-related for any contests we might do. anyone else have any suggestions? Bio?

Being as this is a contest group I think we should be open to pretty much everyone. (Minus MOC thieves.) So I say let him in. If he doesn't follow the rules or posts unrelated MOCs then we give him a warning then get rid of him. The point of a contest is that everyone gets in and we see how good everyone is, not just people in our group.

Honestly, I think this should be a non-approval group, meaning that people can join freely and without having to wait for you to let them in. That's sorta the idea of contests, isn't it? Anyone and everyone can join, no exceptions and no waiting time.

It's a good idea in theory, but I would rather make other people wait then have to delete spams, non-mecha MOCs, and the like.

Dude, it ain't that much of a hassle to do that. Besides, I highly, HIGHLY doubt we'll get any of that kind of action. MOCpages isn't exactly a thriving beehive of trolls and spammers. Bill Nye was one thing, but he was gone within a few days, and we haven't seen anyone else like him in a while.

So I was thinking, for a future contest, we should choose 2-3 frames already in existence (like maybe contest winners' frames) and have everyone build on to the frames. What do you guys think?

Okay, so we need to pick three or four themes for the next mecha contest so that the members can vote.
I really like the Remix idea. that has my vote so far.
Arik, ED, and Bio, you guys REALLY need to talk with me on this.

I'd like to ask all of you mods if you can help me tally up the votes on the creations to find the winner. You know, the whole x/5 thing (x being unknown). If we could have counts from all of you, that would assure the entrants that the scores are accurate.

I'll tally up the votes, but I want to do this systematically. There are ten valid entries, with ten valid entrants. According to the rules, there should be ten votes for each entry that should be counted. That said, I'll be assigning numbers to the entries and the entrants that correspond to each other. Meaning, andros and his entry would be #1, Jak and his entry would be #2, etc. Any extra votes won't be counted on my end. I'll post again once I tally up the scores.
EDIT: Sorry, that actually means 9 votes per entry.

Alright, this has quickly turned into a nightmare. Are we counting votes from Richie and Marcus Jackson? They never entered the competition, and I had assumed that only entrants' votes counted. LTE, did you just add all the votes together and average them out? Because if you did, that' a really sloppy way of doing things.

Nine entries, nine entrants, eight votes per creation. There is one creation in this group that is not an entry. I'm tallying, be back soon...
EDIT: Oops.. you mean Chunk. Well he hasn't voted on any entries and his isn't the group. So for now I'm not counting him.

Well I've tallied and divided by the number of votes and I'm very surprised to announce...
That everything is pretty much how I expected it to be. I think you may have divided all the vote totals by the same number, which would give you weird results. I assume we shouldn't be posting the rankings until they're official so I wont. Anyway I'm pleased to have lost so such worthy competition.

But these findings are nothing if not preliminary. Because only Jak's entry has been voted on by everyone (bar Chunk). The worst offender at not voting is Chris Davis, followed closely by Arik and Bryce. LTE also seems to have missed Bryce's entry when voting. I doubt those votes will make too much difference, but they're required nonetheless. Oh, and Chunk but I'm not sure if he cares to much about the contest.

I should note I haven't counted Richie, Marcus or Inexplicable Creation's votes. Luckily having judges should stop this happening again. And if everyone had done as they we're meant to his way wouldn't be sloppy, however people are very bad at doing as they're meant to.

I didn't average them at all. Remember, Marcus did enter into the contest, he just didn't keep his entry in the group.

Okay, well then his votes shouldn't count. I'm not going a step further in figuring out what the scores are until we figure out what to do.

First: Do votes from Richie, Marcus, etc. count?
Second: Should we ignore votes from people who haven't voted on everything?
Third: Once we have all the data, do we add the votes and average by five, or just add the votes totaled up (5/5 and a 4/5 would be a 9/10, and so on).

I gotta say, you're very vague when it comes to this stuff. Saying "count up the votes, tell me what you get" isn't the way to handle a contest like this. In fact, how you've handled this entire group hasn't impressed me in the least, to be honest.

okay guys, I think I figured out how to rate all the creations: Use only Jakthemad, Andros tempest, Thomas Z., LTE, BIO and ED as the votes that count. You should find that the scores make MUCH more sense. Oh, and on the entries that are their own, just take the first vote that comes up as not one of the votes we are taking and use that.
For some reason, Chunk removed his entry. So I'm not counting his entry or Marcus'.

Well, you could do that, or you could ask some of the people with missing votes to re-look over their comments and add scores to them, as I think Arik commented on everything, but forgot to vote on quite a few of them.

Oh, and I was chatting with Chunk on Steam yesterday, and he said he's forfeiting the contest since he didn't comment on anything.

I think we should stick with the way I'm doing it, because:
1.) Not all of the people are very active and may prefer to forfeit the contest rather than spend time commenting
2.) We all know who has the most votes anyway. (I think)
I don't mean to sound rude about shooting you down, but I think we should just stick with what we have.

sorry to be a pain about this, but are we any nearer to finalising what is happening about the next contest?

As I understand it:

size range will be up to 22 bricks tall - no minimum and length in irrelevant
style will be "racer", definition not established
start date will be - soon
end date - to be confirmed
judging date - unknown
judges - lte and... I'm not sure did we get a final list or not?

what has been asked so far:

what kind of "track" are we racing on. are there hazards or not?

new questions I have:

what will make an eligible mech? title, which group pool added to, member of this group, size, specs, etc.


once we have all that sorted I think we should be ok to start the next contest...

Well, seeing as how people are already beginning to post their entries for the second contest, I'd just like to suggest that the judges refrain from commenting, (or at least attaching a rating), then rate/comment on everything when all the entries have been compiled. It has just now struck me that part of the reason judging got so dodgy last time around was because everyone was commenting and judging as the creations came out, giving their opinions at the moment rather than as a collective consideration at the end. It has been my experience that you can have the most accurate judging if you wait until the end, not procrastination mind you, then assess all the entries and formulate an opinion based on all entries as a whole.

Hopefully this made sense and didn't seem like me wandering in my words. :S

I agree completely. how can you rate something when you haven't seen what you are comparing it to?

I'd much prefer the judges wait till the closing date to comment, either positively or negatively.

Oh geez, I'm so sorry. I've been busy with my Gundam-like 2.

In each area you will be rating the mecha from 1-10, 1 being worst, 10 being best.
Apparent speed of the mecha
Apparent aerodynamics
Apparent MPF (miles per fuel unit)
Overall flow
Coolness factor
Hope this is good for you guys. If you notice any problems, just comment right back to me.

Um, I dunno about those first three parameters. Something that looks fast to me might look slow to someone else. Aerodynamics is harder to underestimate, but miles per fuel is entirely open to interpretation. I think you should add a parameter like "Overall score", that will be a 20/20 score and represent the final grade of the model. Judging something made of lego by how practical or realistic it looks just won't work.

Here's my suggested layout:

Basic design: 5/5
Flow (Aerodynamics): 5/5
Originality: 5/5
Coolness: 5/5
OVERALL SCORE: 20/20

Firstly, for the most part those things in the above post were posted after I had already commented on two other mocs - I would prefer to mark in the same way as before (which was following the criteria anyway). And for your information, I did not give an extra mark for IRL, I was merely stating that it was nice to see an IRL moc in this contest - it did not affect the scoring in any way.

Edit: As a point, I just reread over BiO's above post, and learned that I had infact misread it. I was of the opinon that each one earned a mark towards a total of five (reading fail XD). If necessary I would be fine with changing my ratins to see fit with this criteria. ;)

Um, Jak, LTE and myself are both going to be waiting until all entries have been completed to give our final ratings. I suggest you do the same. I wouldn't change your scores to a 25/25 score until all entries are completed.

Fine, I have been convinced xD

Marks will be re-applied once all entries are in.

I noticed something strange after Thomas uploaded his entry; Hump-free seems to have bumped his creation to the top of the group. By removing it from this group and then re-adding it, he's moved it to the top. I see no way this could be unintentional, and I don't think this should happen again. I'm going to contact him, but I think if anything like this happens again, with anyone, they should be disqualified from the contest.

Bio, I have proposition for you. As you are a much more experienced builder and MOCer than I am, I would like to ask you to become an admin of this group. Is that okay? I'd also like you to run a contest at one point (maybe the next, if you feel like it?).
It'd be great if you would say yes. It's not that I want to alleviate pressure off of me as the only admin, but because of the points already stated. You've already helped me quite a lot with this contest an the last and I thought you might enjoy the idea of making your own contest.

Well LTE, I had been planning on making an official Elite Mechaniers championship group, but I'd be willing to cut that idea short in exchange for adminship of this group. Thanks for considering me. :)

Also, will you still be judging the current contest?

Yes. and I'm giving you co-adminship, not handing the group over to you. But the next contest is all yours.

so, you started brainstorming your contest yet? BTW, I'd prefer not to a judge in your contest. I'd like to enter the contest since you're leading the it and not me.

Yep, I've got a few ideas for it. And I think I'll be the only judge for this one (the third contest), if that's alright with you.

Also, I'm gonna start judging the entries for the current contest, unless anyone else has a very late entry. I'll hold off on posting it until you give the okay.
