Drop outs
 Group admin 
Did you or your opponent drop out? If so, put it here so I can get it taken care of.

If I already took care of it, you don't have to take up space here, just go build! ~C.

Chris what happens IF Aidan DOESNT post but i CANT. Are we both out?


Let's hope neither of those happen. If you don't post, then you don't advance, same for aiden. I've got plenty of people that want to play so IF both of you get booted, then I may just give the round two spot to one of the new players. Let's hope that doesn't have to happen.

Thanks, but you're already in. You don't get two chances. If I need another player, it will be one of the new guys that didn't play in round 1. If it doesn't work out that wyay and I really need someone, I'll let you know.

I suggest you post, Matt. If you get an opponent, it won't change the category. If not, you get a safe pass to round two.

If you don't post either, you will be disqualified.

You didn't think that you'd have school work when you signed up? What about the other 119 players that have work and school as well? You guys aren't the only ones doing other stuff (and just so ya know Reek, I work a full time job, spend time with my family, have training at work including law reviews, firearms training and physical training, run the MocOlympics for the 119 players that want to be a part of this AND I'm helping Sean with Mocpages. And I still find time to build, eat and sleep so please don't make comments about me not having to deal with "school").

I may be lashing out a bit here on you two, but I'm getting really tired of people who took up spots in the games that other people who were going to MAKE the time to be a part of it, can't play now. Not to mention the time that was wasted in putting people in the game who were just going drop out when their lives got a tiny bit busy.

Let this be a message to everyone. Not only for next year's Olympics, but also for the contest I'll be doing in January/Feburary time, if you "think" you won't be able to play, please don't sign up and take spots away from other people who REALLY want to play.

I Dropped out.


Why? Are you scared to go against Eylar? That's what everyone is going to think. Thanks for giving Alex a free ticket to round two and thanks for taking up a spot in the games that someone else who would have actually competed could have had.

And you people wonder why the AFOLs get more respect than a lot of the kids (not all of you, some of you are stand up kids and I don't have issues with you). It's because when you make a commitment, you stick to it. Don't go running off at the first sign of something being hard. That's a life lesson that I hope some of you take away from this.

In case you can't tell by now, I'm disgusted with the number of you dropping out. It takes a lot to get me angry but I am. DON'T make commitments you can't or won't keep!

Gio, kelso and Shaddix are the judges for your group. Also, I don't see Oucho's entry here and there's no link on your page to his so it's hard for me to find it. If you would be so kind as to tell him to add his creation to the group so that it can be judged that would be great. We're being cool with the "No link" thing because everyone is having issues with it, but we at least need his creation in the group. Thanks and good luck! ~ Chris.

Ok dude, you asked for it...

First off, we don't care what excuse you have. There are plenty of other people here that have real life stuff going on the same as you do and I'll bet dollars to donuts (just a little cop humor there) that a large number of us have MORE stuff going on than you could even imagine. Look, we get it, you're too busy with your school (just like more than HALF of the other players) and your boyscouts and then how you can only use your dad's computer for a few minutes a week... wait, if that's the case, how have you had the time to read and respond to all of this over the past couple of HOURS? I was trying to let you off the hook and not put you on the spot in front of everyone, but you forced my hand. How bout we do it this way... anyone that doesn't have ANYTHING else going on and just sits around and plays with LEGO all day, every day, you may speak up.

*waits...

Nope, looks like ALL of us have other stuff going on in our lives.

Now, if you'd like to stick around the group and help cheer others on, we'll be glad to have you. If you just plan on being a nuisance, I am going to ask politely that you leave the group. No hard feelings here, just know that you're not the only one and there are plenty of people here that managed to get their entries in with more issues than you. It was your choice to take up a spot that someone else could have had and then your choice to do nothing with the opportunity you were given.

Let this be the end of it.

I really had no choice. This is my first time on Mocpages in almost 3 weeks. I've been way to busy with School, Soccer, and Homework to even think about legos. The fact that i'm not home during the week doesn't help either:(
I'm truly sorry about having to drop out of the competition, I wish I could have competed in Round 1. Anyways, good luck to everyone participating right now, and thanks for putting up with all of this B.S. Chris.
