Gale and L.A. I believe we are almost ready to begin. Is there anything else that needs to be thrown out here?

Well, I feel the need, being the stickler that I am, to point out a small inconsistency I think I may have found.
Quoting Commander CJ Potter The judges will judge on a scale of 1 to 10 the 3 that are chosen move on to round two (2)

Depending on how many people actually join this thing, just choosing 3 to continue may not work. I think that they should pass depending on the average of numbers given them by us, the judges. Like at the end of the round, we give a number, (Example: 8), which is the minimum average score that the people need to continue to the next round. Those who have the number or higher go to the next round. In the next round we can then narrow it down to one winner via how much they scored. I believe this would keep things fair.
Although, as I have just now thought, (I have such terrible timing X3) that that was your method before. Were you perhaps saying that the three people with the highest scores continue to the next round? If so, that may yet work.
Just the rambling thoughts of a madman :3

Might I say you have a much better thought process than I Gale. I think that was what I was trying to say. Since L.A. is now a judge I made him an admin as well. As for the method I think the combined score you helped me clarify might work best I don't have much time so I'll leave it to you. Thanks. Commander CJ Potter
P.S. sorry for leaving you hanging like this I'm just having to work on School stuff. Sorry

Great, I got confused and I erased the coments from Potter and me. I didn't realize about the selection option, I'm really sorry, please forgive me.

Basicallly, Potter agreed with you, Gale, and he said that he'll be busy these days, so he relies on us. Or at least that's what I understand before I failed. -__-

I think that the minimun isn't needed, we haven't got so many contestants. We could choose the six better ones for a MOC-off stlye round, and then a final battle.

Don't be so hard on yourself! We all make mistakes, it happens!

I believe we can take care of that. School is taking a serious toll in all of us, and I am aware that we all have lives outside of MOCpages. Life is more important anyhow lol.

Right, our options are many. I think it would be wise as well to start the contest, officially anyway, now. What do you think?

Life? Mine ended when I started Uninversity/College again xD

In my opinion, September isn't a good time for contests. But we can't wait until December, either. Is some kind of 'major festivity' near? If not, then I think that we can start it now. It would be better than doing it on November with all the exams and homework. Also, since weekend is near, we should tell people now about the start, so they can think an idea and start building.

I think we need another way for talking about this, without other peoples discover the 'round 2 theme' before it's even set...

Oh, also, we should 'spam' the members' most recent page about the start. And talk with famous MOCers for more publicity. What do you think, Mr. Gale?

Agreed. Someplace else to talk would be best XD

Hahaha, I doubt they'd appreciate that much. XD I say we let the contestants find us. If there is a little activity on their activity log, it may yet spark thoughts that the contest is going. I also think that publicity is not too necessary. I've found plenty of groups to join through just flipping through other things. I am of the personal belief that taking the group off membership by 'invitation only' would help with people finding us. It may happen slowly, it may not even happen at all, but it would boost our chances. I am a rather, self-reliant person, so my first reaction isn't usually to ask others their opinions, but rather solve the problem with duct tape and a little luck XD But if you think it would help, talking to other more popular MOCists might be a good thing to do :)

I'm usually a very pesimistic person, so I doubt we won't have even six concursants at the end of the time for the round. However, maybe people will hate us if we start to talk about ir everywhere... It doesn't harm us wait a time, and see how the things are going, before act too fast. So, as you order, master.

Pessimism is kinda boring sometimes. I used to be like that, now I just don't care whether things go good or bad, I know that I just am, and ain't nothing gonna chance me :3 Don't call me master, I know it was more a idiom than anything, but still. So, I've set the group to anyone can join. Let's hope we get some movement over the next two weeks, huh? :)

Oh my dear, when you had lived a life like mine, you'll understand that pessimism can't be chosen xD
Why no one want to be my master? I always wanted to be a butler, but due to that I'm forced to study Physics... (?) Anyways, I'll hope some people will join the party. Since I don't consider proper to enter myself, I'll try to convince some friends to have fun here.

No matter the situation, one's attitude is always of their own accord.
Hmm, I lack understanding as to why, but as I've recently learned from a friend, I should sometimes just not question things. I agree, I don't feel it would be too proper for the judges to participate. Call whom you wish, the more the merrier :)

Thanks. I wish I could sleep like that. But I'll be up tomorrow at 4 am, just like every day. Then I'll start school at 6:30 and try to finish before I've died of old age lol.

Don't worry, it was a joke. Well, I really want to become a butler, but on the way other one would like to be a football player or an astronaut. And I like Physics xD I'll call you on the way you want, as I want to be called on the ways I like to. Since it's your username, I'll call you Gale, but if you want me to call you in other way just tell me. Even Captain Awesome Sweetheart.

I figured, but I wasn't sure XD Thank you, Gale will do just fine. I will probably never call you that, but oh well XD I will simply call you as most do, L.A. :)

Honestly, it's not a bad idea, but if I may, I feel that there are so many bio groups out there, and most of them don't really have a purpose other than to post anything bio. Maybe once the contest is past we could make the group a more specific type of bio group? Just a thought. The deciding is up to you. :)

I agree Maybe Toa? If not Toa I would like to hear some of your ideas Gale. I'm sorry for not posting anything on here for a while I've been on school stuff for the last couple weeks I do a Co-op type thing and I bring home assignments. Luckily I don't have any this week so I'll have a bit more time. I can't wait to see everyone's creations and I hope we (Judges) can talk to each other again soon. Commander CJ Potter
