Judges

 Group admin 
If you would love to join MELO but don't have the time to create an entry, you can apply for a judge spot here. As always there will be 6 judges (3 for each bracket) and 1 tie-breaker judge. Ideally 2 of the judges will be the winners of the last year (that's the tradition), for the other spots there are no existing requirements.

As I said in the main group, I'd be happy to help with the judging (I don't have enough time to compete, but I'd love to be involved).

Unfortunately I cannot enter the contest, but I can certainly be a Judge.

Before we can make it official, we need some important planning to be done (the prizes are probably the most important aspect)...

I'd love to judge, as I don't know if I'll have time to enter. I can be Tie-Breaker or one of the Bracket Judges.

I can judge if need be, because I will not be able to enter this year.

I may be able to enter, but I have looots of projects planned right now... I may judge or enter, not sure which right now... Maybe neither depending on life.

Is there going to be any effort to get back some of the old judges? Such as Mark, Grant, Lee, and maybe Andrew JN (last year's winner).

Of course (we already contacted most of them)! But we would also like to give some new people the chance to become a judge.

Because I have lacrosse starting up, I won't be able to enter...

However, I would love to help judge, if needed. :)

I will put myself up for judging just cause. Also I have many good ideas for rounds so if I am not put as a judge I could still give ideas for rounds or categories.

Just found this group here, and Andrew doesn't check his MOCpages notifications, but I'll let him know about it (he'll probably be glad to help out with judging).

UPDATE: The 5th judge will be Hildigrim Took. We will still have to wait a bit for the 6th judge and the tie-breaker judge though, because I would like to give Anrew JN some more time for his choice. I will add the final list next week though!

Greetings Michael! I have received your message and have thought it over. I am currently quite busy school, so I have to decline your invite to be a full-time judge. However, I'd be happy to be your tie-breaker judge if that's all right with you!

UPDATE: The last judge is Reese Hawthorne! This was a really tough choice though, because there were some really great builders and experienced MOCpages users among the candidates. At the end I chose Reese, because he has some excellent LOTR and Fantasy builds and furthermore he asked us three times during the application period if he can be a judge, which shows that he is really interested in the job. Welcome to the team!

The complete list of your judges for the 2016 MELO:

1. Reese Hawthorne
2. Hildigrim Took
3. Beardless Dwarf (Evan)
4. Kevin Moyer
5. Mark Murphy
6. Michael Kringe

7. Andrew JN (Tie-breaker judge)
