[VOTE] 2011 Podracer Challenge Fan Favorite/Qualifying Round

Postby onions » Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:19 pm

It's time to VOTE!

This is the qualifying round. The top 24 finishers will advance to the race. They will be seeded in order according to the number of votes they receive. Additionally, the podracer in the pole position, that is, the one with the most votes, will also be crowned Fan Favorite and will win the Fan Favorite prize package.

You have 5 votes to spread around. Be sure to use all 5 votes before casting your ballot. You won't be able to revote later if you pick less than 5 now. This poll will be open for the next 7 days.

After this round, the podracers advance to the race of three laps. The first two laps will each have an events round that will be broadcast on the internet. I don't want to retype the whole thing here, but for more information on how the events will play out, visit the contest announcement thread.

Good luck!

some of you may be wondering why some podracers made it through even though their image was broken in the thread. allow me to explain.

in my zeal to set up an iron clad contest that would minimize the opportunities people would have to change/alter/rebuild their entry, i made posts on this particular board uneditable. which is both good and bad. i didn't realize how many people would have so much trouble posting images.

also, replacing images on flickr would prevent someone from changing their entry since they have this neat built in function where the image address would change if it was replaced. it was never explicitly stated in the rules that that sort of thing was not allowed, just implied. so we went over the entries where the image was replaced for whatever reason, and accepted the ones that still followed the submission guidelines (orientation of podracer, clean or gradient backgrounds, etc).

i realize this contest was a headache to submit pictures. trust me when i say the admins do not want to repeat all the drama that this contest seems to have brought up.

going forward we are changing one fundamental rule of entering contests to the following:

- when the deadline of a contest is reached, the thread will be locked. that will prevent anyone from editing their post. any entries submitted prior to the lockdown is considered your entry.

what this means is that any picture you post you can change, remove, alter, edit, or whatever up until the deadline. if you have problems posting a pic, this should give you enough time to correct it. if your picture violates one of the rules (such as adding backgrounds, labels, text data, logos, etc), you should have enough time to correct it.

in other words, under the old rules once you submit your pic, you're locked in. the new rules, no one is locked in until the deadline passes.

so, all that being said, i want to thank everyone for the patience and tolerance for my crazy rules. we'll try harder to make things run much more smoothly from here on out.

Agreed, it's certainly a lot harder than I thought it'd be. I'm thinking the fan favourite is going to end up being quite close in itself, let alone the next 23

But what if you only like 4 of the entries and don't want to use the last so as not to help out the opposition/competition? Huh, huh? Yeah.

Yes, the inability to edit our posts after submitting them was rather annoying. Simply closing the entry thread after the deadline has worked very well so far over at Eurobricks, so that should be a better procedure for next time.

So you're the naughty kid who screwed up the poll? You could've just voted for an entry that you think is least likely to succeed, but that would have been un-sportsman-like, so you probably shouldn't have voted at all. :S

Can't wait for the race to begin! :D

No, I used all 5 of my votes for entries I want to do well/win. That quote there was merely me hypothesising.

Man this one was really tough and i wish i was able to come up with an idea for this one. This prize was actually one i really want now that i've had a chance to look at the toyfair pics in detail. That spongebob one with the two ships w/ sails was so close to an idea i had for my PotC racer that i scrapped it and couldnt think of another good idea in time.
oh, and just wanted to say that all the models came out really great. good job everyone!

My guess would be that it violated the rules in some way and was therefore disqualified.
