Welcome everyone to the 2014 MocAthalon!

Please read the rules thread first so you understand how the game works.

This thread may be used for general conversation. Please direct all questions to the question thread.

If you are new to the MocAthalon, here is a link to last year's games if you'd like to see how things generally work.

http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/22242

Now then, let's get this party started!

Looking forward to seeing how this goes! Sadly I won't be playing nor judging this year, but I eagerly await the slew of entries arriving in March. Glad you're putting this on again Chris, hopefully you get a large group of players and judges.

Hey folks. For the benefit of the poor fool who is stuck collating scores (Guess who?) can we remind you to please ensure you have posted in the completed teams thread once your squad is assembled and also invite all the judges to your group.

It will be an immense help for me so I can ensure I have created an individual scoresheet for each team to totalise those marks when they start rolling in - at the moment we have around 18 completed teams so there is the potential for over 500 mocs to have to score and record!

Thanks folks, good luck with your building!

can we remind you to please ensure you have posted in the completed teams thread once your squad is assembled and also invite all the judges to your group.



Another reminder - there are currently 24 registered teams (potentially 700+ MOCs!!!) but not everybody has invited the judges to their groups. I haven't checked with the other judges yet, but I have not had invites from the following teams:

Team SNOT pickers
Clutch Builders
Team Technic Tinkerers
Team Brickhead

Please send out the necessary invites as you get chance.

Also, a gentle word of advice to our earliest posters - Please, PLEASE ensure you put the appropriate links in the text on your MOC, as well as following the requested format for categories, team name, etc. in the description. These requirements are listed in the rules and categories and if you are not sure what to put where, please ask. There were/ are several very quick submissions which did not have the necessary links. There will be a bit of leniency shown for the first few days while these are sorted out, after which you run the risk of your build not receiving a score. Don't waste your time and effort building on a technicality of admin people!

These are rule requirements folks, you have been warned.....

Well, our team has one dropout, and another AFK, leaving us with only three members. Of course we are going to still compete, but we obviously do not expect to get anywhere close to the top. For now, it would be an achievement for us to just NOT get last place. Speaking of which, does anyone know our chances of not getting last place?

For now, it would be an achievement for us to just NOT get last place. Speaking of which, does anyone know our chances of not getting last place? Just wondering if there is some mathy-thingy someone could do to show our odds.

I think that, even with only three members, your team is still one of the better ones...

Well, our team has one dropout, and another AFK, leaving us with only three members. Of course we are going to still compete, but we obviously do not expect to get anywhere close to the top. For now, it would be an achievement for us to just NOT get last place. Speaking of which, does anyone know our chances of not getting last place? Just wondering if there is some mathy-thingy someone could do to show our odds.

Our team has 11 creations already! The highest of ANYBODY. I checked all the groups in the link below and the highest I could find were 2 groups that had 6 creations in it. Most of them have 4 or less. So I think you're good George, nobody has really posted anything yet.

This isn't important enough to put in the announcement thread so...

I'll be taking the next couple of days off the computer. I'll be back on for judging and followup on things on Monday night.

Looking forward to seeing lots of entries when I get back!

Oh, the entries inspired by Mr. Wright are coming. One does not simple build his architecture in an afternoon though ;)

Hey guys, I am very sorry I could not compete for the rest of the contest! Seriously. I know you are probably quite annoyed but I just prefer war hammer over lego! In fact I’m sorry to say I have entered my dark ages and will not be on MOCpages for a VERY long time! Enjoy MOCers, you are all great builders and people and thanks for being nice and welcoming me here… The good thing is that I have made it to the final round of the 40k tournament! Bye guys, see ya around one day...

Bill, its not that the judges "don't like you." Its the comparison. Like, my Under the Sea was obviously not as good as the other entries that came before mine. Therefore, I had to get a lower score. Don't let your low scores get you down! Heck, you are so much better at building that I was at your age. If you would like, I can try to dig out an old moc of mine and show you. Gosh, that would be humiliating. XP The point is, don't stop building.

I probably... Over did all of this but don't beat yourself up about the judges "not liking" you. You are a fantastic builder!

Hey guys, do to lots of stuff you don't care about I've had to reinstall firefox on my computer. It says that MOCPages is not verified on firefox and connot run, btu that you can change the security settings. So does anybody know how to bypass the security settings on firefox?

Use a bigger hammer.

Actually, "compatibility issues" is the topic you need to search in. Should give you instructions to fix.

Go to the help group in your browser and look for "compatibility issues". It will explain how to fix it.

Then post like the wind! (Wait, that doesn't make sense.) XD

EDIT: Sorry, browser help group is what you meant, right? I can't find anything useful in the Chrome help group.

Go to the Help topic in the toolbar of your browser (Explorer, Firefox, etc.) not in a google or chrome search. The actual Browser will explain how to remedy the issue. Look for "compatibility issues" there.

Yep, I never got a score from him on my first entry. I assume life kinda got busy and he hasn't had time,but no matter. Reality takes precedence over moccing anyway.

So after a day of recovery from building frantically, I finally took a picture of my workspace.
I did Iron Builder leading up to the Mocathalon, so what you see here the results of not sorting for two months.
