Spontaneous Lego build CONTEST
Join to comment
 Group admin 
From time to time I may drop in and host a spontaneous group contest to keep things active and fun. This is the first of many.

For this contest the theme is clone wars. You must tell your own story of what happens to Ahsoka. As we know, in the movies she doesnt exist. Your build must include some kind of vehicle, ship, walker, or speeder.

Deadline for entries is this Saturday. If you try to enter one on Sunday it will be disqualified. There may be some kind of reward given to the winner of the contest and maybe one for each person who competes.

All Mods and Admin must judge each build out of 20 points.

5 for story
5 for creativity
5 for wow factor
3 for studless (no studs/minimal studs showing)
2 for tying story into star wars universe

Begin!

When submitting, please post the link to your build in this thread.

Great contest idea! It's great that you are back and still loving your group! :)

My only suggestion would be to change the deadline, because I don't think that many people will find the time to add a good entry in only 1 week.

That's why it is spontaneous. For those that do compete I may even throw in my electronic trading card. The cards are widely collected among 501st members. What will make it extra special is that no one else has seen or recieved a card yet...

Other prizes will be given for the top winners.

As far as I can tell from my experience we won't get many entries until Saturday, because many people are busy with school and work or the MOColympics and well... then there is the short amount of time...

Yeah, it's a good idea... It's just from past experience, short term contests don't work very well for this group.

Yes...I agree. School is just starting for many people, and the first few days are hard on peoples time. Although it IS a great contest idea.

I agree with Noah. My suggestion: Expand the date to September 23th or 30th. I don't want to see this great contest fail. :(

I will expand the date until the 15th. For those that do submit by the original date there will be a bonus however.

That's sad, but true. 95% of all groups are dead in less than 2 weeks, so it is a great success that ours is still alive at all.

I understand that but still, it is your job as mods and admin to keep the group active. Until you guys get a successful contest going I may not host one again. There is your challenge.
