I can find the hidden hint in this entry, because I read your reply in a certain topic .
Obviously it can be annoying that people have been making a MOC for months and then just enter it to a BBC contest and win the show. The idea of building according to the theme is dumped. On the other hand, these people have worked very hard and BBC contests are the best way to make people aware of MOCs on BZP. So why not let the builder enjoy that, after all that work?
At the moment, I don't have a clear opinion on the subject. I'm not staff, so I don't have to .
But I can't understand why the enjoyment has gone. Or is the only enjoyment in the chance of winning? Isn't entering fun at all? Obviously everyone wants to win and should aim to victory, as BR said after BBC 39, but I don't really like the idea that winning is all. BBC contests are also about showing your skills, seeing what others have done, voting, getting reviews, reviewing other's MOCs...
I still have no idea what to enter. That's far more sadder than anything else now .
A hidden hint? What hint?
But about the skills part - they're about showing your skills, yes, but there's a time limit for a reason.
Oh, and you might want to check my epic, btw. -S
