Nearly there!  :o
I think 10 entries is a respectable total, and a nice number for people to judge between.  Too many entries and people would get bored halfway through viewing them  ;)


As far as voting goes, 10 is a slightly awkward number to start with, if you begin with 1vs1 you quickly end up with an odd number of entries and things get messy. A battle royale style every entry in one round does give a solid verifiable ranking of 1-10, but if voters only get to cast one vote each it could look quite imbalanced.
I ddon't know how feasible it is but in a battle royale  I'd like to see each voter get to vote for their top three choices, first place getting 3 points, second place getting 2 points and third place 1 point, or a similar system, helping to lower the chances of anyone (me) scoring a zero  :P

However it happens, I just want to see the models

Not sure if the forum supports scored voting - it's not a bad idea. (EDIT) I checked, and it does support more than one vote, but they are not weighted, so you'd vote for your favourite 3 without distinction.
All I can think of is setting up three polls, with people voting for their first placed entry in the first poll, their second most favourite in the second and the third in the third - and then multiply poll 1 scores x3, poll 2 x 2 and poll 3 x 1... a bit too clunky.... :(

Well it is my fault I pulled out  :D

I am sure you can find someone to blame. Like the car, for example.

No, no, the poor car's completely innocent.
Work, on the other hand......  :D

But I can't complain because there might be a new development in that line, related to models and wargaming.

And with that....


TIME'S UP!  :o

Put your brushes down guys.

Ten entries in total, voting will be up later today I hope.
Two groups of five entries each, the winners go on to a final.
Any other way would result in probability complications with smaller and larger groups; and one single group will (as weighted voting is not feasible without multiple polls, unless I am missing something) make this a bit too 'sudden death'.

Thanks to the mods, to Prof and Nick for the support, and especially thanks to all who took part.
To those who failed to submit on time - make sure you complete the stuff you're working on.
And to the submittees (is that even a word?) - well done, and best of luck.

Re: BUILD SOMETHING COMPETITION 2018 RULES - SUBMISSION ENDS, VOTING SOON

VOTING IS NOW OPEN :D
I have split the 10 entries in 2 groups of 5, listed alphabetically by the forum name.
Voting will remain open until next Sunday, 18th March, 14:00 GMT.
The two winners will then compete in a semi-final.

In the case of a tie in any or both of the groups, the tied competitors will all make it to the semifinal.
If the difference between the first and second is two votes or less - well, let's hope it'll be clear cut! :D

Best of luck to all ten.  :D

Oh crepes, I'm sorry  :( I also seem to have missed this post. Shame I'd gotten the polls up and votes were in I'd probably have closed a blind eye to this.

Don't worry about it. There is no one to blame but me  :)
Also I probably wouldn't have finished it (though there is still room for improvements) if I had known the actual deadline...

Last reminder - voting ends Sunday at 14:00 - links to voting threads a couple of posts above.
Long day of work tomorrow, so I won't be around to remind you again.
Sunday afternoon - the final starts!

Group 1 winner - Andym, Statue of Liberty
Group 2 winner - Juxt, Sorcerer's Cabin

Well done to all participants, voting was definitely not easy.

I should point out a slight error in Group 1 scores: the 'Total Members Voted' is 101; but if you add up the voters per competitor, the actual total is 102! The % votes in fact reflect the latter figure, and not the false total of 101. No idea how this happened; in this case the first placed competitor was well ahead of the others, and this one vote does not affect the outcome.

The final round of voting is open - make sure you vote:

And it's over!
Andym wins again, can he make it a hat trick next year?
Congrats to Juxt for the incredible sorcerer's hut, and to all others who took part.
Thanks to the management for hosting BSC2018, and to all viewers and voters.

It's over - until next year.  :D
