I know that this is probably a foolish question, but since this may be my first time entering an MOC, I need to ask it. How do I go about posting my entries? Do I send them directly, or host them on brickshelf? And if I have to host them on an outside source, do I have to pay a membership fee? Finally, how do I create a link that shows my MOC on brickshelf?
Thank you in advance for answering this very rudimentary question.

Okay, here's my entry. I'm still resizing the rest of the pics, and I will upload them by tomorrow night at the latest (hopefully). I'll start a topic when I've finished. But until then...

Sorry for taking so long to answer.

Hosting the pics on brickshelf is what I would do. Either that or some other sight that lets you host pics. You can't host them on CC. Once you have uploaded them on the host sight of your choice (I would recommend Brickshelf) post a link in this thread. You can post a link by typing [url], then the link's address, then[/url]. It is free to host on Brickshelf. I am not very knowledgeable about other picture hosting sights so I will say nothing.


Also, a note to all. I have update my first post with the prize info. Check it out if you care.

Question:
How many entrees are we allowed?
I am sorry if this was already asked, but I couldn't seem to see the question anywhere.

Hi Lamanda,

I believe it was as many as you can, but to remember quantity over quality...er.....quality over quantity :lol:

I hope that was the rule, cause I have at least two for-sure entries almost ready.

Thanks Mike, just wanted to be sure before I go all crazy with mini stuff. :wink:
(Though I will probably wind up with one entree anyway.)

Okay, here are my two entries[one was built by my sister when I told her about the contest]. I resized all the pics.

Village Castle-my sister's, and a lot more civilian-y then mine.

Mountain Fortress, which is smaller, but more detailed and warrish.

I have a quick question: Are any minifigures against the rules? Can you have minifigures even if the creation is micro-scale?

Thanks,

Thanks,

Do you mean like an all-grey minifig as a giant statue or something? I'm sure that'd be allowed, if it was clear it was a statue.
