I'm glad, I have seen more that one that deserves to win, but there was 2 competing that were way above everyone and it was close between the two.
It is not a sponsored mod
What if a person owns a company or is an Artisan, are they considered sponsored?


Sponsored will be defined as it is for the regular vs. sponsored sections on the site.

Why not? Like my current build, is on going and on 4 forums now, but i update each one at the same time. I think it should be "as long as they are not in any prized competition on another forum (in that they may receive a prize on multiple sites)".
Also, anyone who gets PAID to do mods, like Bill for example, should not be allowed. I think that falls under "owns a company" and IS a sponsored mod in that the case may be done for a manufacturer to display at a show. If youre getting paid to do a mod for someone on here, the mod should be placed under the owners name not the builder, but should be allowed as the mod is usually the concept of the owner not so much the person doing the work.


The reasoning behind allowing only OCN exclusive builds is because the original reason for MOTM was to bring more traffic to the site. If the logs are posted everywhere there is no reason for the management to give us the money for prizes.

 

I will have to check with Tator Tot for each of those cases, but as a general rule it will be as I said above, based on which sub forum they are required to post in.

 

I severely disagree with one person's idea being executed by another person and then winning a contest that is supposed to be based on a person's own skills. I feel like if the ideas are all one person's but the work is another's that the build will simply not be eligible. I will still allow things like having panels laser cut by someone else, as that still requires the skill to make the drawings and is limited only by access to the machine.

I was talking like in the case of CJ's 800D, so he cant compete?

Has there been any discussion of putting this up up on the slider menu during the voting period to increase attention? Also, I think the rules are very well written! Thanks for taking this over! thumb.gif

I will have to look at it a bit more, but no, I don't think it is eligible. Particularly since he is no longer on the site.

But once CJ gets the case and all the parts he will be doing a work log. But since he didnt 'build it' would he be ineligible then?

Again, I will have to look in to him much was done by each of them, but my gut feeling is that it will not be.

Congratulations on the new tags Kev! I like the guidelines you've got so far, I don't mind OCN's contest being slightly more exclusive than build contests on other sites.. I'm curious about the concept of 'construction' vs design and who's responsible for a build. Mine was obviously worked on extensively by FannBlade, and he had conceptual ideas along the way, but it was also very much at my direction. He can attest to how nutty I was with the details biggrin.gif Any feeling on whether a rig like mine would be allowed to enter the new competition? There was a lot of work done by both of us in bringing the project to completion, it wasn't simply a finished product that got shipped back.

I would ask you both if you felt that the build could fairly be judged as your own work.I would ask that if you at all felt that the build couldn't be fairly categorized as one person's work that you withdraw your nomination. except in extremely obvious cases (there was a build nominated last year that the person who nominated themselves had done no work on their case themselves, they had paid someone else to do it entirely) I intend to leave it up to the honor of the people involved to judge for themselves if their projects should be included. I would hope members would be honest and fair about it. Like when CattleRustler and Syrillian's Polymorphix was nominated, they decided to not allow it to compete because they felt their teamwork gave an unfair advantage.

I do not like excluding any project, but I also have to keep what is best for the fairness of the competition in mind. I hope that makes sense to everyone.
