Bio-BuildOff-Athon Discussion
Join to comment
Groan. I hate to admit it, partly because I just finished my entry and will post it shortly, but you're right. I think it's mainly because Berial never showed up to host Pool 4 that the BuildOffs sort of fizzled. But to show that I'm not just that guy who keeps complaining about everything, I volunteer to help out! Just tell me how I can be useful and I'll support this new tournament however I can. But I think there need to be some rule changes:
First, telling somebody to make an entry in a week is impractical. Hardly anyone will have an entry ready on time. 2 weeks just works better. Also, scoring is most easily done as it was in the BBOs, with voting by any group member deciding who wins.

How can I help?

(when I went to edit my first post it hasn't appeared O.<, So I'll put it here until it does)
Firstly I mean no offence to anyone when I say this but, the Bio-BuildOffs seem to have died.
I suggest a re-start, but this time bigger.
Now I'm not very knowledgeable with the Bionicle storylines so I wouldn't be very good at running this/coming up with themes, but why don't we try something like the Mocies?

I am willing to help get it going though but I would also like to participate as well.
Each round could be 2 weeks with the final weekend used for judging.
~First round is an entry (it's how you 'apply' to the contest) and fairly simple theme that everyone builds into. This is so that if there are and odd number of contestants, someone will get cut. Also to see who is serious about this and is not just saying they want to participate.
~From there on each round is a particular theme that could be Bionicle focused or not to throw in curve balls that mocers may not be familiar with testing their abilities. Pairing shoulder be random, I donno someone draw from a hat.
~Last round between the last two contestants could run 2 weeks and the theme should be the hardest but possibly the most epic theme the judges can think of.
~Winner get's, well bragging rights for winning the first ever Bio-BuildOff-Athon!

How should scoring be done? There be an odd number of judges that either vote for one creation or the other or give each a score out of 10 or 5?

I'll try and contact a few people who have successfully operated a Bio-BuildOff for help and see if they are willing to be a judge.

If we can get this planned out and moving I'd be willing to help with going through the entire members list and commenting on something of theirs as 'advertisement' XD Also a Bionicle creation advertising this would help.

All in all, why go small when you can shoot for the stars!
-----
(below is after the second post of course)

By adding ideas your helping a lot.
Hmm I looked and the first Bio-BuildOffs were set at 2 weeks and not everyone would submit something. Alright agreed on that.
The reason I want to have it scored by judges is to get around that problem. Doing it by popular vote can be unbiased and what if not every single contestant votes? Perhaps for the last round maybe but if this is a large competition, depending on contestants to vote for reach pairing is unreliable. Which is why I would want an odd number of reliable judges to do the scoring.

Also you can help by leaving comments on peoples pages about this idea, asking for help with it and partake in it.
I'm going to start with the Admins, Mods, people still submitting creations to the site and if all else fails, go through the member list @_@.

I wouldn't lay the blame squarely on Berial in this instance. Many things happen, so organisers like myself should have taken control of the situation early on and keep the flow going. Coupled with holidays, end of year stuff, beginning of year stuff, interest waned. Attempts were made, albiet disorganised, though I was curious to see how those two could handle the responsibility. Not too bad, given the situation of disinterest. But this is the new year, full of new faces and new contests. I will try to support you guys as best as possible in any administrative tasks that need to be done. Could do with a few more active mods at the very least. *glances around at potential candidates* You know who you are :P

Okay, lets sort these pools out.

1) All remaining pools have until the end of the week to finish up. We need to start fresh again and properly this time.

2) When pools are created, they will go through discussion approval first by Admins and Mods in one of the discussion threads for Pool Contest Ideas which will be put up at the end of this week.

3) Pools will be run by Admins, Mods or VERY reliable members only. No random pool starters.

4) Any Pool Contests created will require formalised rules which HAVE to include:

A) Theme, including specifics to the theme B) Start Date and End Date C) Part usage specifications D) Photography outlines E) Posted Link to the Entry

Obvious rules such as One entry per person and New MOCS only are a given, but are usually included anyway.

5) Only one Pool to be run at a time.

That should be it. Let me know if I missed anything.

Oh so that's how it works o<o... Heh sorry about that I'll be more pateint from now on for when my posts don't show up.
Also good idea for making a guideline for random build-offs so people fully understand what they have to do for them.
Hopefully once this Bio-BuildOff-Athon is fully set I can get a go ahead ;D

@Kai Heffernan:
Thank you, and yes the intention is a big annual event. I was intending to ask you to help with this and perhaps be a judge since you handeled a Bio-Build off very well. Do you know any other people that would be good for judging?

I'll tiddy up the outline for the contest and start asking people if they are interested tomorrow, I need sleep @-@... and yes I will wait if my editing doesn't show up right away >->

@Chris Yee: Also how about you start up another topic with that guideline and have that where people can suggest the pool ideas?
@Kai Heffernan: Ah splendid, how would be being one of the judges sound? Also any input on how to outline the contest would be appreciated as well.

Revised Bio-BuildOff-Athon guidelines.
1) Each round will be 12 days. On a Monday a theme will be announced, builders have until the Friday of the next week to submit. If their submission is dated for the Saturday or is not submitted at all, they will be disqualified and their opponent wins by default.
2) First round is the entry round. In this round anyone can submit an entry as long as it is before the due date. This is to see who is serious about contending and is able to. If there is an odd number of contestants the due date for submissions will extend only slightly to allow it to become an even number.
3) All rounds after are head to head elimination rounds. When the theme is announced by a judge random parings will be listed as well.
~A. When uploading your creation please have it titled “BBOA Round# Vs (Your Opponent’s Name)
~B. At the top of your description please include a link to your Opponent’s Page as well as a copy of the theme’s description.
~C. In the Round’s topic post a link to your submission.
4) For each round, voting will be done by the 3 judges. For each pairing they are to only vote for one of the two, allowing for no ties. On the Monday winners for the round will be listed and the topic will be closed as a new one will be made for the next round to start that day.
5) The contest will run for as long as it will take until there is only two remaining contestants who will go head to head in the most challenging theme the judges can come up with. The winner will then gain bragging rights to being the 2011 winner of the Bio-BuildOff-Athon.

-----

1)Is 12 days enough build time and have the Saturday and Sunday enough time for judges?
3) Is that clear enough for a good way for submitting? Or if there is a paring list on the topic is any of that really necessary other then posting the link into the submission topic?
4) Now I think 3 judges would work fine since there’s no chance of ties.
How does it over all look? Also something important, how should the judges come up with the themes? There’s no Personal Message system for MocPages it seems so I don’t know how the judges would be able to talk to each other without other people seeing and getting a heads up on coming themes. Unless they already had each other’s e-mail address I would figure posting their e-mail would feel risky to some. Should it just be that the judges take turns picking a theme?

As I stated, I figured i'd wait until all the pools are done and dusted. I'll put it up in a short while since it seems a fair amount of attention has been diverted to the new Build Offs anyway. Which probably means Andrew Rose is the winner of Pool #4 by default. Congratulations!

A. Name of theme
B. Explanation of theme, refrence links if needed.
C. Further outlines if needed (Part usages, size, ect.)
D. ”White screens are suggested but not necessary, it’s the Moc we will be looking at not your photography skils, but it has to be clear.”
E. ”Photoshop and parts modification is not allowed. We are looking at the skills of using Bionicle pieces to achieve the theme.”
F. Ending date for submissions.

I really liked the idea, I hope it works. I wish I could have helped more with the first BuildOffs, but this time of the year is complicated for me. So, I volunteer to help with this new contests, if you need.

Also, about the communication between the judges, we could make a temporary e-mail for it, so the judges could talk and exchange e-mails trough it. We could greate a group fpor it too, but I think it would be unnecessary, since the point is to get this one group active.

@Andrew Rose: I'm a natural organizer for such things. I enjoy doing this. Also I accepted Kai as a judge based on that he ran a Bio-BuildOff successfully. Your duty would be to vote for each pairing on the weekend and to make a Round topic following the guideline with a theme of your choosing and random pairings of previous winners when it's your turn. Do you accept?
Also I'm planning for the Entry Round to start on Feburary 28th That should be enough time to finalize the guidelines and sort out anything else.

@Kai : Even though you are the first judge, would it be ok with you if I started the Entry Round? Then you started Round 1 and then so forth as normal. I've got a good simple theme in mind as a tester as well as a lil bit to say to welcome contestants.

@Johann Dakitsch:
Thank you and I do hope this goes well. I decided a simple system of the judges taking turns to come up with a theme and setting up the topic would work and be much simpler. Thanks for the suggestion anyways.
Also we may have our thrid judge at the moment and I think 3 is enough. You could help out though by spreading the word about this contest.

I'll post perhaps the final version for the guideline shortly, there are a few things I need to take care of right now.

Judges:
1-Kai Heffernan
2-Porcratus Finch
3-(pending)


Bio-BuildOff-Athon Guidelines, please read.
Contest set up and how it will work.

~1) To start it off there will be an entry round where contestants enter a creation. This is to show that everyone who enters, understands the guidelines. If by the due date there is an odd number of contestants, the entry round will end when one more contestant enters and it becomes and even number of contestants.

~2) Each round after will be a contestant versus contestant elimination round with a theme to build to.

~3) Each round will be 12 days. On a Monday a theme will be announced, builders have until the Friday of the next week to submit. If their submission is dated for the Saturday or is not submitted at all, they will be disqualified and their opponent wins by default.

~4) The contest will run for as long as it will take until there are only two remaining contestants who will go head to head in the most challenging theme the judges can come up with. The winner will then gain bragging rights to being the 2011 winner of the Bio-BuildOff-Athon.


For the contestants, when submitting a creation you need to follow the following guidelines for it be acceptable.

~1) It has to be a new creation not a previously built one.

~2) This is a Bionicle focused competition, but other forms of Lego is allowed to be used sparingly. If because Lego ’bricks’ are used in such a way it distracts from the Bionicle creation, you may not be favoured.

~3) Photoshop and parts modification is not allowed. We are looking at the skills of using Bionicle pieces and the imagination of builders to achieve the theme.

~4) White screens are suggested but not necessary. It’s the Moc we will be looking at not your photography skills, but it has to be clear enough to see the creation clearly.

~5)When you submit your entry you need to include these for it to be acceptable:
-A. When uploading your creation please have it titled “Bio-BuildOff-Athon Round(the number of the round you are entering) Vs (Your Opponent’s Name)
-B. At the top of your description please include a link to your Opponent’s Home Page as well as a copy of the theme’s description.
-C. In the Round’s topic post a link to your submission as well as the name of your opponent.

~6) As long as it is following the theme, any form of creation is accepted. Your encouraged to not just show off your building abilities but all of your creative imagination.


For the judges to equally understand their duties.

~1) Themes will be decided in turn by the judges for when they start a round. Judge number one picks, then next round judge number two, then three and repeat.

~2) On the Monday after voting the next judge in turn will create a new topic labelling it Bio-BuildOff-Athon Round (number of round). The winners of the weekend voting will then be randomly pared and listed.

~3) The round topics will be structured as followed.
(Theme for the round. It is both a challenge to build the best as well as to come up with your own interpretation of the theme if it is not a familiar one to you.)
(Any further explanation for the theme if the Judge wishes to.)
(list of pairings for this round. This is to be made in any way so that it is purely random, this ensures fairness to all contestants)

~4) On the Saturday due date and Sunday if need be, each judge must vote on one person of the pairings in an obvious way. This way only one of the two contestants will be a clear winner and no ties are possible.


So how is this? Simple enough so that anyone can clearly understand? I think could be the final draft for the contest.

Also Kai and Andrew can you promise you can follow the Judges duties to make sure this contest works smoothly?

Yeah, it was one of the reasons for having consistently airtight rules so that we wouldn't have mid contest discussions on loopholes. It's not fun having built a massive creation only to be disqualified.

Hey cool creation here. You should check out Bionicle Display's Bio-BuildOff-Athon! It's a Mocer vs Mocer theme based competition and everyone who builds with Bionicle is invited to participate. The Entry Round has opened so make sure to hurry and submit an entry if you wish to participate and have a lot of fun. ( http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=28&topicid=65214 <-Entry Round) Also it would be handy to check out the Guidelines topic to properly understand how the contest will work and how to properly submit creations.( http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=28&topicid=64525 <-Guidelines). Come on and show your skills at the Bio-BuildOff-Athon =D

Sadly I might not be able to participate... I injured my arm recently and I cannot move it properly, plus small wrist movement really hurts, making writing and building tough.

Hey there guys, I'll be puting up the first round later today (in my time zone it's monday today but I suspect that's different for most).

Before I do I need to be sure of a couple of things:

I think of a theme

Randomly pair all of the entrants (Infrax, Overlord Galaxus, Chris Yee and Toa Atraks?)

Set guidlines

Give them two weeks to enter and the two out of four winners go onto the next round

Correct? Sorry if the questions seem simple but I don't want to screw this up for everyone XD

Yup that's exactly how it works, I may just use what you said as the guideline for Round set ups XD
Just one things needs changing.

I think of a theme
to
I think of an EPICLY AMAZING theme.

Go a head and make the Round. Remember it's two weeks time and the round ends on the friday night of the second week. Just so there's no misunderstanding.

Also yeah I did quite enjoy the submissions as a show of skills.

Alrighty the first contest was a pretty good success! Congrats to Galaxus!

Now I would like the entry round for the next one to start on the 18th. (it's called 'Marathon' for a reason people XD)

There's a few points that I will be addressing tomorrow by altering the Rules and Guidelines.
main ones are.

~Length of rounds. Would 1 week be enough? It would make the contest become more aggressive but move along much quicker and keep the energy and excitement going easier, especially if a lot more people join the contest and are very quick builders.
Pro~ Faster contest with a quicker pace
Con~ May limit quality and ability to finish for those with very little free time.

~Topic for Comments&Question on current rounds. Reason why, if there are a lot of people participating in the contest, the round would get cluttered ALOT more with comments. Allowed comments would be people posting the entry links as well as the final comments made by judges and their pairing votes.

~Free for all battle. Pretty much just like the Battle of the Judges topic but anyone not currently involved in a round is welcomed to build and see how they would've faired against others. Perhaps people they wish they could've gone up against for this particular round but can't because they're both out of the contest.

~Suggest a Theme topic. Simply put, have a cool theme idea? Post it there and it could very well get used if the judges feel it could really challenge people's skills.

~We need a solid sure fire way of advertisement. Any suggestions on something we can post on peoples pages? Needs to be catchy, create interest to at least learn more about the contest and what it's all about and of course a link to the discussion topic. Also how should we advertise to people? Simply comment with the advertisement on the new creations appearing in the bionicle section of mocpages?

~Should we start the Entry Round as soon as we have the next contest laid out on how it shall work and ect. Then have it go on for 2 or 3 weeks?

Please give me some feedbacks on these.

Oh and who would like to be the Judges for the next contest? Chris Yee you said you would like to replace me on the judging table. Still up for it?

I would like to try and see how many rounds I can last XD I will still take on the responsibility of answering questions and general Moderator things of course, but other than that just a regular contestant being judged on skills.

Thanks. I need to work extra hard this term.
anyway, here are the rules I gather are for me

By Portacus Finch
For the judges to equally understand their duties.

~1) Themes will be decided in turn by the judges for when they start a round. Judge number one picks, then next round judge number two, then three and repeat.

~2) On the Monday after voting the next judge in turn will create a new topic labelling it Bio-BuildOff-Athon Round (number of round). The winners of the weekend voting will then be randomly pared and listed.

~3) The round topics will be structured as followed.
(Theme for the round. It is both a challenge to build the best as well as to come up with your own interpretation of the theme if it is not a familiar one to you.)
(Any further explanation for the theme if the Judge wishes to.)
(list of pairings for this round. This is to be made in any way so that it is purely random, this ensures fairness to all contestants)

~4) On the Saturday due date and Sunday if need be, each judge must vote on one person of the pairings in an obvious way. This way only one of the two contestants will be a clear winner and no ties are possible.



So, there is an individual judge for each week. After that judge has done his share, the next judge chooses a topic and the week round commences. Judges then vote unanimously on the best, and the clear winner moves on. Is there anything else that I'm missing? If so, can you please fill me in? Thank you, very much appreciated.

I'd love to! Actually, I'm finishing 2 bio mocs that I'd like to use for advertisement!

Since I will be away this summer and this will probably run through late June, I can't judge. Too risky. But I figure that joining would be less of a risk, as long as you know that I may have to drop out if this runs too long (assuming I make it that far). Would that be all right?

I hear that as "I give the judges permision to rig the contest so I fail"

No worries there will always be the free build topic. (much like battle the judges but everyone can build that's not currently in the contest)

Thanks. But I may not be able to enter anyway - got exams coming up and an MOC under construction. Whether I enter or not is largely up to how much homework I get in the next while.

Aww shame. Well the contest entry round is up! Also the Free for all topic is set up as well.

For the heck of it I bumped the rules and guidelines topic so people would notice it easier XD

Also I`ll have my advertising moc up here tomorrow as the only camera in the house is gone for the day <-<.
But for those who want to post their mocs as advertisements just put the contest's name as the name of the creation and include a link to the Entry round =D

Thanks ya'll.
