Grand Master and Sith Emperor thread
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Hi Duncan, congratulations on your new position. This thread is for you and I to discuss the group and for anyone else to ask us questions.

Firstly I'll just outline your duties as Sith Emperor.

1. You are in charge of the Sith Ranks. At the end of each mission you may move one person up one rank if you wish to. Just remember that it is a good idea to keep at least one active person in each rank.
You can demote people to based on activity if you want but I ask that you do not demote either Billy Bob or J Man as they have earned their positions.

2. You are now also a judge. You must judge each mission fairly before the following Monday, providing a score out of whatever rank that person is. (Scores for each rank can be found in the "IMPORTANT - Wrongly Judged" thread"

3. You must also try to participate in every mission, taking part in the Masters event.

4. When the Sith win a Mission it will be up to you to design the next one. Basically copy my layout of how I presented Missions 1 to 3 but obviously on different planets with different scenarios

5. Promote the group! We want to keep people active so answer questions and comment on stuff and just generally keep the group going.

I think that's it. If you or anyone else have any questions please ask them here. I hope you bring a new age of victory to the Sith, good ck and congratulations again!

Sounds good. I will try my best to judge but I am busy with school until late June because I live in Canada. Hopefully I can squeeze this into my schedule and find a way to judge everyone's.

I am really excited about this so I'm going to go make a MOC to calm down.

Also, are you making the mission this week if the Sith win? Because I'm going to be away for a couple of days.

This is what people get judged out of....

Padawans/Acolytes get a score put of 10
Kinghts/Apprentices get a score out of 30
Masters/Darths get a score out of 40
Jedi /Dark Council Members (Including Emperor and Grand Master) get a score out of 50

Harry, would it be okay with you if I made other smaller competitions just for my side? Maybe to keep the members active, the prize could be Council member until the next contest. I could judge and everything and it would be like once a month or something.

Im responding to Duncan's last comment here like he said. Yeah unfortunately I am going to be gone for a few weeks in June due to much more important life things than lego- sad as that is. I would love to help make and judge them as well. I do have some good ideas to throw around with you if you have an email address or other way to communicate ideas without having everyone see it. But all in all- Im totally onboard to do as much as I can with this side thing

If you just copy the last mission description and then change it to fit the one you're making up, keeping the same format as the last descriptions and giving the different ranks different sub-missions

This is mostly for Harry, but other people will read it too. I will try not to insult anyone and anything that sounds like I have, it wasn't intentional. In my personal opinion, if people don't want bad things said about their creations, then they shouldn't enter them into competitions. If people don't stop complaining about the way I judge then I'm outta here. I took a week off break and a whole topic was created to complain mostly about my judging style. (cotd...)

(...cotd) Honestly I feel people should pull out of the group if they feel they are being insulted by the scores. If not that, then do something about it. It's quite simple. We have given them advise on how to build better but apparently arguing about it is easier. I just think that people need to get their priorities straightened out. If this doesn't stop then I'm out. It has been a fun group until now. Lets not ruin it with corruption.

I just noticed I was still on the roster and I was reading all the posts/comments lately and yeah I have to agree with you Duncan, people don't realize that you and Harry are the JUDGES which means you can tell someone if you like their creations or not and everyone feels their builds should be getting 10/10, 20/20, etc. but they are honestly pretty bad and deserve the low scores...one of the main reasons why I left.

There was no group. He did the contest here, in The Great Force War.


August was Sith Emperor... Thats not a position that you can take and then just barely post any missions or comment in any of the threads. I didn't completely demote him to acolyte but due to his inactivity I had to find a more activer Emperor and Duncan was the best choice in my opinion

I agree Duncan, the group is beginning to get out of hand. No matter how many times I say quality over quantity we keep getting these scruffy little builds. I'm not trying to put anyone down either but there have been very few good quality builds.
I'm going to carry on the group for a few more missions but if people arent going to calm down and start to take the advice that we keep giving them on board then I wont blame for leaving and I'll just close the competition down.

FYI: me when I complain about a score its more debating it due to being spoiled by an art professor who allowed us to debate our scores, because such scoring is somewhat subjective. But if you notice what I primarily complain about isn't the scores, its your advice just isn't detailed usually. You can't expect people to follow advice if they have no idea how to do it.

Anywho, I do know sometimes I end up putting comments in hopes to help you that inadvertently spark stuff, at which I apologize.

We do give advice Fell. We keep saying that people aren't putting enough detail into their MOCs and that we'd rather see quality over quantity.
We don't want to spoon feed you and essentially tell you what to build because then all the entries would be the same and we expect you guys to be able to come up with your own take on the scene.
But just slapping some figures on a barely detailed base isn't what we want to see....

You missed the point, but thats okay. I was attempting to give an account for self, since I can't for the whole but can only account for self, and apologize for any hard time I personally have seemingly given you while attempting to help.

Anyway, you personally have been on about 3/4ths of them giving good detailed reviews, but there are two other judges. Personally I still would like it if either of the other two would answer my sincere question, not complaint but question to comprehend, on this thread http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=20443&topicid=82920 here.

I have been thinking, and I think we might need to think up something more than a promotion to the winners of side missions, because that has nothing to offer the higher ranks, and soon everyone will be the top rank, which will pretty much put the group in a halt, as it will get somewhat boring...
