Of course there be certain rules that each moc must pass before being given a certification:
- 1. Must be entirely a new moc that wasn't in previous CCC contests.
2. Can not be a exact copy of someone else's moc.
3. The moc can't enter if it was posted before the previous contest's entry deadline.
4.(optional) The moc was posted on CC forum "Castle Section".
5. Creator asked for certification in the moc's post or either asked in the "Certification List" forum section and passed all the other rules for certification. When asking you must also post your name/nickname, moc thumbnail/link image and name of moc.
- 1. you can enter for the next contest. As long as it fits in the next contest's entry rules.
- 1. the Admins post your moc for you. You still have to follow the CCC's entry rules that the certification applies too and apply when the contest allows for entry posting.
I'm guessing each time a Admin certifies someone's moc the Admins will have to write on a "certified mocs" list, in which the moc's name, creator's name and maybe one thumbnail image of each moc will be listed.
This is just a suggestion and I know this idea might create a lot more entries for future contests if it was applied. Which I think isn't a bad thing having more entries except the judging will probably take even longer to finish.
I guess I'm saying here, is to move the "posts before rule" deadline to the end of the previous contest's entry deadline. Which would probably require the "certification list" to keep track of the mocs of the people who ask for the certification and pass the certification rules, which will entitle their moc for the next contest, as long it follows/fits the next contest's entry rules. I hate repeating myself.
I welcome any comments and answers if this could be applied or why it can't? Or what might be missing in this idea so it could be applied in future contests.
