Welcome to the rules thread! Please take the time to read the rules carefully! It is important you don't just skim over them. Thank you. Rules:
1)Using Photoshop, Gimp, etc. to alter a builds appearance will be in no way tolerated. These tools are only to be used for creating backgrounds, text, etc.
2)LDD will not be allowed in this contest simply because, having unlimited bricks just isn't fair compared to the people user what real bricks they have in their collection.
3) You will be required to title your entries as follows. For round 1: NLO Round 1: (your title here)
Come round 2 and so on you will title them: NLO Round 2(3,4,5, etc.): (Your name) vs (your opponent's name)
4) All entries must include a working HTML link to the contest's home page. All round 2 entries and so on must include a working link to your opponent's home page. A link to their entry as well is helpful but not required. If you have HTML trouble just let me know.
5) Only NEW builds will be accepted. Please refrain from posting old MOCs.
6) Finally please note that from round 2 and so on judges are NOT required to give feedback on their voting decisions.
7) Failure to comply with the rules above will result in disqualification.
I believe that's all, but be sure to check back here regularly in case I add anything. Thank you!
