The punishment for cheating seems really unnecessarily harsh. Wouldn't disqualification from the one contest be sufficient? They don't win, so it doesn't matter after that. Also, that section of the post seems really overemphasized in relation to everything else. It makes it appear as if you guys care more about punishing people than the actual contest.

It seems pretty fair, honestly. Cheating is bad and if you're not a cheater you have nothing to worry about anyway.

They cheated because they wanted to win the contest. They get caught, they don't win the contest. Problem solved.

I agree to a certain extent - maybe they should be disqualified for the next contest, too, and maybe have a proto drop in there too, but outright banning from all contests and the site itself seems quite harsh. Still, I'm not sure this is the best place to discuss it - opening a ticket in the tracker would have a better likelihood of producing actual results.

But why does it matter what the punishment is? As long as you don't cheat, it doesn't apply to you at all. Also, a harsher punishment will more likely discourage people from cheating. If they just get disqualified from one contest, they might cheat again in the next one, hoping they won't get caught. And if they do, they can just try again next time. I do agree though that it is somewhat harsh getting banned from the entire site.

Couple questions:

  • Is there any specific reason why the technic/system ratio changed from last contest?
  • Does this count as two pieces or one?
  • Does this count as a technic or system piece?

Details may change from contest to contest.That would count as one piece.That would be a System piece.

As long as they are rubber bands produced by Lego, yes.There is no piece limit in either direction.

No, it wouldn't be. If you have to get down to exact percentages, please increase the Technic and/or reduce the System by a considerable amount.

This is kinda late but still. What if someone isn't cheating, but is suspected to? The rules say that anyone who is caught or suspected of cheating will be banned.

 

Anyway, I might enter, but I somewhat hope I don't get into the finals. Don't know if I would be able to mail it, much less go there myself.

 

Can I make a phoenix?

Anyone have a suggestion for the eye color of my phoenix? It's mostly red, orange, and yellow, and I don't know what eye color would go best with that.

 

Also, would using a non-Lego rubberband to stabilize something count as cheating?

Blue might work well. Something that will contrast.

 

I won't be entering, but just wondering, is the technic-system ratio based on piece count or weight/mass?

Finished the basics of my phoenix. Thanks for the advice of using blue for eyes, jazz. I have to say I impressed myself with this, but that's not saying much, seeing as most of my MOCs are just the Inika build :P

If it's a rubber band from a Lego set, that would be okay.

Is it okay if some pieces have a thin coating of pencil lead? It really just makes the pieces look a bit grayer.
