1. HAS to be on 1 4x4 piece. Yes it's small, but seriously, it's amazing how much detail you can fit!

2. You CAN build towers. Only 3 levels though.

3. There is SOME overhang. Like a figure can hang over or something, or maybe a plant or gun, but no STUDS.

4. It has to start with "Caleb's 4x4 Contest round >insert round number here<". Got it?

5. MUST be a link or at least something for people to copy and paste to get to the group.

6. If you miss the deadline, you will get points deducted for each day its late.

It means you can have like a figure or something hanging off, but you can't put a 6x6 (per example sake) on top of the 4x4. Make sense?

What if the studs are bending outward from the center of the 4x4 and they overhang a little, but not a 1x1 overhang, more like a 1/2x1 overhang?

You can start building anytime you want, but you can't post until you see a convo that says "Official Start!" or something. And that convo HAS to be started by me.

Can we build one 4x4 for each category, in one entry? Or is multiple 4x4s in a single entry a no-no?

It's a no-no UNLESS you find a way to stack them

So, if I have overhanging studs that are vertically oriented is that OK?

Yes, but just don't over-do it.

Are figures aloud to hang off? Are there aloud to be as many figures as you want on the MOC? And are you aloud to put 2x2's or anything smaller under the 4x4 brick?

Yeah, Nathaniel, you need to do that, it was a bit too strict.

Hold on, Nathaniel gave his vote. He's a judge, it's only not fair to Josh.O because that's his opinion. Nathaniel gave his opinion. The vote is a combination of things. Although I did not particularly fancy those two, Kazuki's was better from a few other standpoints. Josh.O is just being jealous. It's not fair to Kazuki because then he's being apart of something not his fault, and it sertainly is not fair to Nathaniel because he was expressing is rights of the first ammendment and giving his opinion. He should not have to rejudge something.

The Stormtrooper inscident is not very pleasing but from what I saw:
His Quality of Pictures were better.
Creativity was where you had a bunch of clear pieces and had a droid which says, "Clone Wars", when he had a bunch of Stormtroopers which have almost been forgotten (And I am also to blame for that.) and are seldom used nowadays.
Detail was the same with you having just the clear pieces for the bulk of your detail, but he had the Stormtroopers on a smaller space.
And finally, Originality, where again, your downfall was Clone Wars, while his was Jedi Purge.
We're also forgetting the biggest part again, IT'S NATHANIEL'S OPINION! He want with what he thought was right. Am I happy that some people's score are the same when I think one is better and sometimes even more superior? No, but I'm respecting the judges' opinions. That's what I'm trying to say. You're not happy with your score based on your opinion so you've decided to target someone with a similar theme to get what you want. And in all reallity, one seven is not going to hurt your score as much as four sevens. You got a 9.5 and even a 10, add in a seven and you've got a total of 26.5 out of 30. You still have another judge before your final score is tallied and is out of 40 points. Don't get so upset.

Yeah, MCLegoboy's right. I think 7/10 is a fair score. I don't think Nathaniel should have to re-judge.
