Confederation Day 44. Dec. 1, 2008: First and foremost, you can see that you did not have to scroll down as low. I have moved the news from October & November to a new page. (See the above link.) Next: The TSC Christmas MOC-off! Here are the rules:
Remember that we NEED 4 PEOPLE to enter in order for this to work. Here are the rules for the build-off:
1. Steps of the tournament: Eight people must be entered. These 8 people will be pared up at random to face each other in MOC-offs. Confederates who are not in that particular MOC-off must comment on the page of whom ever they want to win that MOC-off. Whomever wins will go on to the next round. Who ever wins all of the MOC-offs that they have to beat will be crowned champion, we will be using standard tournament system. (i.e. 4 pairs, 2 pairs, 1 pair) The current champion will not be competing untill there is only one person left, who will battle for the title of Champion.
2. Rating system/ How you win a MOC-off: Rating will be based on the following: 1. Size of MOC (5 points) 2. Quality of MOC [colour coordination, and, if you are replicating something real, the likeness to the real thing] (10 points) 3. # of smileys accumulated from Confederate reviews (1 point per smiley) 4. # of positive confederate reviews (2 points per review) 5. My personal oppinion (5 points) 6. Christmas Theme (or New Years theme if it is AFTER Christmas): 10 bonus points!
3. Rules for cheering: 1. You can not jeer people you do not want to win. 2. Those people need your reviews, so get out there once the MOCs start being posted.
4. Setting up the page: The Title must have "TSC MOC-off:" at the beginning, to distinguish it from other MOCs. This is pretty standard people.
5. Other: 1. There is no theme requiered. 2. Once a pair has been called, and you are in it, you have all day of that day to post a creation. If you fail to do so, you forfeit.
Here is a list of competetors:
1. Alex Ruiz
2. Googoo the Great
3. Avenger 08
4. Corpral Gober
Current Champion: Phazonix Aran 2010
Good luck! And sign up!

Confederation Day 46. Dec. 3, 2008: Someone has declaired war on us. His name is Christian Collins. He says that "the entire Empire of the Dragoon Isles" declairs war on us, but that is the name of his home page, and he has no allies. None the less, be on the alert.
update: Our twenty-first member and first knight has joined. My old friend, Tom Olivieri.
update: Our twenty-second member & second knight has joined. Duncan Life.
Confederation Day 47. Dec. 4, 2008: Alright, I have checked what is comming in 2009. It is going to be damned confusing and I fear for the safety of our alliance and alliances everywhere. What ever happens, we have to work together and keep the old ways of alliances alive. Our way of connecting may be at risk. You must promise me that we will stick together and do things the old way, the way we are donig things now. This is going to be a wild ride... Also, we need more people for the MOC-off. START ENTERING PEOPLE!
Confederation Day 48. Dec. 5, 2008: You know what? I am going to look at this from a different angle. I am not sure how new "groups" as they are called will work, but we will cross that bridge when we come to it. Should we have to rebuild, I will send invitations to all of you. I am not sure how other people will join, but we will figure something out. This is going to take teamwork to figure out the new version of our pages. I just hate to see this version go...

Confederation Day 65. Dec. 22, 2008: Corpral Gober Of the Galactic Republic Founder of the Republic of Texas has quit The Silver Confederation. He and I did not see eye-to-eye politically, there was a misunderstanding, and he has left. I hate to be blunt, but he wasa the newest TSC member, so we should try to cut our losses and move on. It is best for our own stablility. Anyway, Googoo, and Avenger-keeper of a new camera-, get going with your Semi-finalist MOCs.

update: Fed has "returned from the dead" so to speak. You can see him at his new account here.
Confederation Day 71. Dec. 28, 2008: No news.
Confederation Day 72. Dec. 29, 2008: Emergency News: Alright. I did not expect this new MOCpages to come so soon. I am afraid that I need to swing back and regroup. Once I have figured out the new system, I will return. That being said, The Silver Confeederation wil be inactive untill my return. MOCpages' society is crashing: The Army of Trinity, one of the most famous of the Old Alliances I have ever known, is all but finished; and The Clan of Equal Men may be next. This is a dark time for us all. Untill I contact you, the MOC-off is post-poned, and as are all Founder's Council meetings. I will see you all again shortly... I hope. It is slightly ironic that I sohuld be so worried: I got 2 new videogames yesterday, and one of them was Force Unleashed.
