Round 1
 Group admin 
Without further ado...

Round 1 - eliminatories.
There are only 16 slots in round 2, so this round is going to be demanding and competitive!

You have from feb 1 to feb 10 (MOCpages time) to post your entry.
For an entry to be valid, you must post a link to it in the Round 1 Entry Thread
http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=23570&topicid=94035


The theme is...


Single panel 4x4 mini-vignette

Build a humoristic 4x4 vignette on a single panel, single floor, minimal overhang. It can be without words or be accompanied by 1-2 lines tops.

You will be judged on humor and technique.

Humor: what was the judge's reaction?
Disappointment 0
Meh 1
Smile 2
Giggle 3
Laughter 4
Roll-on-the-floor gut-splitting laughter 5

Technique: how well is the vignette built?
Shoddy 0
Essential 1
Average 2
Detailed 3
It really pops out the screen 4

Each judge can also award 1 or 2 extra points for merits not included here, or if they're like, really good friends with you.

It's up to each judge whether or not they also leave a review on your MOC.

Scores are final.

Each judge will score each entry, the top 16 scores will move up to round 2.
In case of ties, I'll just show your MOCs to the first person I see (mostly my GF, sometimes it might be my brother or my captain if I'm using my phone) and ask them which one they prefer. This will save time between rounds.


Note: I urge you not to underestimate this category because it looks small and easy: If it was easy to make people laugh, everyone would be a comedian. The judges are extremely diverse, there's my lovely self, a BioMOCcer and a rather talented YFOL (watch out for him in the next few years!), so the scores might vary a lot from judge to judge.

Next round will be a blast, you will want to be a part of it!

Isn't Gringat an adult?

And also, Articulation in the build counts as extra merit, correct?

"Build a humoristic 4x4 vignette on a single panel, single floor, minimal overhang. It can be without words or be accompanied by 1-2 lines tops."
I don't really know how I could have been clearer, but if you need some examples...

Which, for one reason or another, his selfMOC does not have. :/

So the first round is something I've never done before (4X4), and something that's very difficult for me to do (be a comedian). This will be an interesting round for me.

The lower part of Kongu's mask has what seems to be a beard.
At least that's what I've heard Gringat say about it.

Can there be a ceiling?

Yes, as long as you don't use it as an additional floor.
Guys, please ask questions in the question thread, you may find they've been answered before.

Mr. Rowntree? I was not aware of my father advising you to join in the fun. Although, I'm quite certain that he would approve. ;) This nut does not fall far from the tree. (Yeah, I know the puns are endless. -sigh-)

Build like the wind! You have until tomorrow evening. I think. XD

...and we're done with R1!
With 57 members, I surely expected to see more entries, but as it is we have enough for r2.
Though the result is pretty clear, we still need a couple of days, because R2's structure requres a precise placement.
Stay tuned!
