Ok guys, we need to finalize the contest theme. What are the rules for the crazies contest? I know I'll be a judge, and Zero will (most likely) be one. 1st place is an RBpistol, and we need 6 people entering. I'll say it can last until october 18, just to make the date long enough to get a lot of entries. We need a little bit more feadback then what we are getting at the moment, people!

Hmmmm rules.... As of now I'm trying to come up with a good point system, and I'm also trying to think up what should not be allowed, and what should be allowed, any suggestions on that?

Originality, implementability, and cleanliness. And, clever use of existing parts to do away with exotic parts. Maybe also a bonus point provision for hardwar store only builds.

I was thinking about reproducability, cost, and writeup quality. I like what Exo posted, also, and they should be added to my list (but if it's a "crazy" contest, I don't really think cleanliness matters.) I think everything should be allowed, unless it is dangerous. If their are any lurkers out their with ideas, post them for gosh sake!

Edit: I would also like a different forum to help support us. Nhaven and NHQ are out, so that leaves Nrev and FU. We have internal ties with FU, but those ties are a brother, and you know how they are, so I was leaning more towards Nrev. Also, it would be cool if we could get a blog to help us out. I'm friends with an author of Acenerfer's blog, but I kind of want something... bigger.

I would ask Vince and Rouge first.  If they say go for it then PM taerkitty and see if he'll help because he's great at hoese kind of things (I'm guaranteeing that if he enters he'll get a "0" in the cleanliness part of the contest.

Yeah I don't think cleanliness should be part of it.

It depends, what kind of assistance do you need, I may be able to work something out, depending on what you exactly mean. Also, even if, K1LL is a pretty cool dude too, he would probably let us do something.

I was leaning more towards advertising than anything else. K1LL would probably let us do something, but I figured it was best to ask the head boss man. Vince is pretty cool, but I've PM'd Rogue before, and he tends to ignore you (I was even going to sell him LS parts). Vince and Ozzy would probably be the ones to ask. NMaR would probably post something if we ask. I'm not really asking any other forum to judge, unless they want too, I just want to advertise more than just a link in our sig.

Ok, we need to get something together tomorrow, or I'm leaving it to Zero to plan. So, what we have so far:

-We can probably get Nrev. Vincent, Ozzy, and Ambience are the ones to PM. I might do this if I get a thread up by tomorrow.

-FU will probably let us. Zero doesn't need to PM Mega, he lives with him.

-The things we will be judging are: Originality, reproducibility, craziness, use of unexpected parts, cost, and writeup quality. I don't know what the scale will be. I guess something like 1 to 8, just to be different

-1st prize is an RBpistol, if we get at least 7 entries.

-All entries must be posted on HoF, unless we partner with another site. If it is posted on HoF, you'll get a certain advantage, though. Maybe 3 extra points.

-It will start whenever we post the official post, and end sometime in October.

-Me and Zero are the judges, and possibly more if we partner with more sites.

-Their is a possible of 48 points, unless you post your writeup on HoF, and then theirs 50.

-We'll finish judging when we reach a decision. No specific date.

-We'll ask germ and maybe Acenerfer if they will post a link to this on their blog.

-More stuff that I'm probably forgetting, seeing as I posting this as quick as I can for enough people to see it before tomorrow.

If their is anything I'm forgetting, please let me know.

I will send him a PM, more official that way... What would you like, a announcement on FU, or would you like it to be put in the news?

Either is fine, but both is better... GO BIG OR GO HOME!!!!!!!! Also, I'll post the official thread today. That thread is for entries only, this thread is for discussion only. I'll PM Ambience, Ozzy, and Vince. Let's hope to get this thing off the ground by today.
