J.D. lees. I'm not worried about that, it's just how am I gonna post? My LDD is not working (won't start), and I don't have a camera at the moment.

I'm worried for the reason that this theme is something out of my comfort zone for the reason that i've never heard of the theme.

HELP ME! give me a hint or tip on what to do. I don't even think I can do it. My mom has a camera phone and dosen't know how to post things on the website. do you know how to do that?

you can text picture messages to email accounts. in place of a phone number, just put in your email, then save the attatched photos.

OR

some phones have a removable memory card. just find the card and use an adapter to plug it in to a usb drive, and you're good to go.

Heath - I don't think many actually pay attention, at least based on the questions. Chris has him some patience.

Chris - Thanks for doing all this work. We all owe ya.

We should start a pool on how many won't use the correct format for the title. Or email to see if it's okay to be a day late.

I have to admit it's kind of daunting to read all this stuff. there is just too much traffic here.

I got home from work and found 222 emails in my inbox and almost all of them from this group. Only one was worth reading, nothing against the general blather and jokin's around, but there's just to much and I don;t have the time.

Since I got a bye I'll have to wait another two weeks to find out who I'm up agaisnt in round 2. I know some of the guys in my sub-group but I can't guess who's going to take what. Good luck, ladies. Hope the judges like ya. Oh, well, stink or win, huh.

Hey Chris; I know there have been way too many comments around here and that you don't have etnough time to reply to all of them but I still hope you may answer this:

I got Short Story, can the short story be a YouTube photo compilation and embedded here??Or does it have to be added with pictures here in MOCpages.

Can I make a stopmotion movie as the short story? I am a stopmotioner and I could make one in 2 weeks with no problems since I enter school until the 24th.

If not of these avobe are possible then can I at least make speech balloons or short lines beneath the picture (sorry if this has been asked already)}

I was put in classic space for Round 2. Cool. But I was wondering I that has to be exactly classic space, or could it be something like M-Tron or Blacktron.

Sorry if this has already been answered, but every day this group grows about 200 conversation and it's all jokes and cr@p. I just can't keep up with that.

I have a question, Mr. Phipson sir, about the categories(don't hurt me!). In the popular fiction category, can you build a scene from a fiction movie that could also be placed in the guess the movie category, or does the popular fiction have to be a certain thing(spaceship, magic wand, etc.) from the work of fiction?

Pretty much, can you build a vignette for the popular fiction category?

I'm sorry but you didn't make the final cut. The problem was that I had too many players and not enough spots. A couple of the players with first round byes were nice enough to give up their bye so that people could play. At that point I had to make a decision, who of the players that were left over to let in. Being as you don't have any creations on your page, we didn't know your status and therefor that spot went to a builder who had posted before. I'm sorry but hopefully you can make it next year. Feel free to cheer on the rest of the players. ~Chris.

There was a VERY long conversation about this somewhere in the group (I may have deleted the thread so I'll explain) but the short answer is no.

This is a lego "building" competition not a "design" competition. LDD is fine in it's own right, but it's not right for this comptition. Sorry.

Sig-figs are "regular" people from mocpages, not movie characters. That would be for the "guess the movie" category. The number of figs is entirely your choice. 1 to whatever.

(sorry, I'm really nervous even though my opponent won't build his entry)

I have a question about the sig-fig catagory I'm in can it be a movie character(if not I have a back up sig-fig)and also how many sig-figs should be in the moc


Ok, I got your messages. Give me a bit to sort out how I'm going to figure this out. Not sure how you got doubled, but with "real names" and "online names" it's not to hard to get mixed up when dealing with over 100 people. I'll get it sorted out. You will be competing in sigfigs (just a lucky accident that both of your spots happened to have sig fig as the cateogry) so continue what you're doing. You'll only have to post once though. Good luck in the game. ~ Chris.

Also, to brickbuilders opponents LEgofanatic 18dude and Willis Legomancer. Both of you please post your creations because even though one of you "may" end up with a first round bye, you STILL have to post something in order to advance. One of you just won't actually have any competition.

Saw your entry Sebeus....it's showing on the front page. Hopefully the guy doesn't decide last minute Sunday to drop in an entry...otherwise you did a great build and you played by the rules, so according to those rules you'll get the bye. Great job!

Hey Chris, apparently I win by default, because my opponent is on a 2-week vacation. You can see it right here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/144112

He emailed me and said he did, so I thought naturally guessed I got a bye, but he emailed me after I posted my entry. Wait... I posted my entry... he emailed me... then I asked the question: Before I add it... I am in round two and I still not sure if I can post... I'm guessing I am... so cool!, then I said I got a bye, then I quoted Jack, then you quoted me, then I explained this... I have too much time on my hands...

Yeah, I saw it. But don't go counting any chickens before they hatch. There's still a few people who want to play that didn't get in... and now it looks like I may have a spot for them. Do your best and post your entry on time. If no one else joins, you get the bye, if someone does join... good luck.

hey Brady, I was talking to Yuri and he would like to have an actual opponent in round 1. If it's ok with you, since you won't be able to continue after this round, would you mind if I gave your spot to one of the new players that would like to play? Please respond as soon as you can so that I can notify the new player. thanks ~ Chris.

I know you must be swamped with questions, but would you consider this to be microscale?
http://www.flickr.com/photos/cemmsr/3820929297/in/photostream/
It may seem like an obvious question, but I'm just trying to make sure I've got the specifications of Microscale down. Thanks for your time.

yes, at least I consider microscale to be anything that doesn't fit minifigs; like the minifigs to scale to the model would be smaller than the real ones or something. like using a stud as a person rather than a minifig yet making it to scale with the person stud.

Your entry stands as it is. First off, let me say that I had NO issue with you writing a WW@ story, that part was fine. The issue we have is that you used a moc that was built before the round started. If it were my decision, you would be out. I've talked with 2 of the judges from your group and the decision is theirs to make. If they don't have issue with it, being as the jeep is not the "main" moc, then they will judge accordingly. It's out of my hands and I wish you luck. ~ Chris.

Well, Andrew Colunga used his "Satellite of Love" and he didn't lose. I repeat; I did not know you couldn't use a previously built MOC.

Andrew has a first round bye this year. if you're talking about last year, different time, different circumstances. As far as not knowing that you had to build something new, I refer you to Rule number 1 in the rules thread:

1 Deadlines: You will have 10 days from the time I post the round's match-ups to CREATE post your moc.

there's been many other posts about this since then. But like I said, the point is mute. The Judges for your group will be making the decision, not me. I wish you the best of luck.

For future reference, would modifying an older MOC count as reusing? I'd just like to know so I can continue plotting.

how bout to be safe, we just don't use anything that you already built period. It would make this a lot easier. I mean, how fair would it be for Eggy to be able to use one of his castles as a backdrop for a new smaller moc? sure we wouldn't count it (according to dave) but it would still stand out more. Just be safe rather than sorry please.

OK - here is my take on recycling past MOCs in this competition:

"THE CONTESTANT MUST REMOVE ALL TEXT AND IMAGES CORRESPONDING TO ANY RE-USED OR RECYCLED CREATIONS. THE REMAINDER OF THE ENTRY SHALL STAND ON ITS OWN AND BE JUDGED 'AS IS'. IF THE IMAGES AND CORRESPONDING TEXT ARE NOT REMOVED, THEN THE JUDGES ARE INSTRUCTED TO IGNORE SAID ITEMS."

This same logic should apply to any Photoshopped entries, LDD, Stop-motion, modified LEGO, or any other illegal entries. This rule should apply to an entire photograph containing the item and all of the text and any other related items.

Let it be written. Let it be done,

~dave
I've deleted the pic containing the Jeep. I keep saying that if I knew I wouldn't had done it, but I didn't, I know now.
