Contest #1: Rebooted
Okay, so we have plenty of members now, right? I've decided to run a contest every two months to keep the hype going. Here's the rules:

1 - You must build a Bionicle/Hero Factory based creation. It must be a reboot, revision or recreation (they all mean the same thing, but whatever) of an existing character that has the status of 'alive' in the Bionicle Wiki (http://bionicle.wikia.com/wiki/The_Bionicle_Wiki).
2 - The character may NOT be a Toa, Matoran or Turaga.
3 - They can be either fully established characters, or just footsoldiers, entities, creatures or Rahi. So Bohrok, Rahkshi, Visorak, Skrall, Glatorian etc. are good to go.
4 - To sign up, you must type in this convo telling me which character you plan to do.
5 - The creations will be voted on by the group members. Admins votes count for three, mods counts for two and everyone else for one
6 - You may use any pieces you like, but the model must be primaraly Bionicle or Hero Factory. So not only are technic and brick pieces okay, but 3rd party and modified are okay too.
7 - LDD is allowed, but not recommended.
8 - The dealine is one month from now, which is on the 12th of September. Extensions will not be given under any circumstances.
9 - All MOCs mut not trip the parental guidance system. So, don't do anything like the Toa corpse haning from a tree or that toa with breasts MOC.
10 - Any questions can be answered here.
11 - The winner will get bragging rights, and that's it.
12 - NO OCs! That's for the next contest!
13 - Anyone (except myself) can enter.

14 - After you've posted the creation on the pages (and this is important), please give it a title like this

B2015HG Reboot Contest: _____

The blank can be filled with the name of the character chosen. For example, 'B2015HG Reboot Contest: Rahkshi', or 'B2015HG Reboot Contest: Makuta Miserix'. Got it?

I will answer any more questions you have for me. Enjoy.

Oh! That, right. Whoops. Ah well, this one won't need too much effort.

You can. I was just saying don't make MOCs that show off, um 'exposed body parts'. And, why not Roodaka? Wait, she's dead. Well, why not Kiina? Or make a female version of an existing character.

Roodaka isn't dead. She's still alive.

Anyways, if I were to enter the contest, would I have to build a new MOC, or could I enter a MOC that I've already built and posted?

For the uploader, use http://www.brickshelf.com/. Sadly, I can't help you with the other two problems.
Quoting Hawkflight _(Steven):
Nothing about a requirement to use a certain amount of CCBS? Seeing as BIONICLE's using that, it's time that certain someones start getting used to those pieces...

Oh! So that's what it's called. I said you could use 'Hero Factory Pieces', which means CCBS. Sorry, I got the name wrong.

Here's a question: are we allowed to make a previous form of a character who's still alive? For example, the Toa Hagah. The Hagah are still alive, but are we allowed to make them in their Rahaga forms, even though they no longer have those forms? Or do we have to make the character's current form?

b) he's a Toa. So I can't enter him, can I? It was also a joke. I built him for the fun of it.

Cool. He's my least favourite character in the series, but I'll judge him based on how he looks, not how he acted in the series.

If I do enter (which is very unlikely, I think I'll do a Bohrok Lehvak. I've been wanting to do that in CCBS form after a conversation on the TTV forums.

Go for it!

Well at least there's a Lego store in your country. We're the largest island nation in the world, and not a single Lego store is stationed here. This means no PAB cups. EVER. We have to end up buying it from places like Target, where they up the prices to more than double what you have them at. So, what you'd buy at $10 would be $25 over here. And don't get me started on the larger sets: $99 sets can be $300!

There's lots of Lego stores on the east coast, probably one at least within your state:

Interesting. When I was younger I cut up my Tarix mask a bit, and cut seven tall marks into it. Could I use that, per se, for a revamp of Tarix or would that be a step too far? I want to make sure before I start.

I probably would if we could revamp ANY character instead of limits on no Toa, Turaga, ect. Or if we could do non-Bionicle revamps, in which case I'd already have an entry with my Judge Slizer revamp/reimagining.

If I said we could do toa, I'd probably end up getting a million Tahu remakes. Would that be nice? I think not.

But, in hindsight, maybe it wasn't such a good idea to put too many limits. We've only got three entries...

Bots are fake accounts automatically created by AIs with minimal user help. Their purpose it to either hack the system or spam it with advertising. I've seen bot pages on MOCpages that were advertising, um, 'vitality pills'. Fortunately, they were taken down by Brickbusters.
