Great Idea, Owen!!

One suggestion if I may, Probably should limit bragging rights to a maximum of 30 days or 30 boastful posts.

I'm pinning this to keep it near the top until you can get it rolling. Ya'll need to figure a way to let a bunch of people know.

Owen...by way of an incentive, could you and Bob not award the entry a 30 second "supermarket sweep" inside VINTAGEPRODUCTIONS HQ? (Just askin')

Ian, I think Owen was holding off on making the announcement as a surprise. I think his plan was one minute for each monthly winner and five minutes for the yearly winner. All winners must provide their own transportation though.

Craig...why do you think I've been saving up my Air Miles these past months!? :lol:

 

PS. I just noticed I missed out the word "winning" from the post above! :o

Where do I sign-up for this competition ??

During the five minutes, do I have to carry everything I want outside of the store, or can I just pile it up on the floor?? :w00t:

Hey JS...it's virtually on your doorstep! Just hire a pick-up, park it right outside the door and just sling the gear in, by the armful! ;)

This is great! A friendly monthly show off......er......Contest!

 

My only suggestion is "No Sweeps" meaning once you won the only other contest you can win is the finals. Just so the same two collectors aren't winning each month and one is trying to put their best up first.

 

I believe this is one of those things we just need to start doing...I'm sure we will resolve any issues that might come up.

 

Looking forward to participating in this one!

Thanks T .

 

L ,

I feel with the level of collections on these pages its gonna be a very tough fight every month ,

The chances of a sweep are pretty slim.........

This will be a fair fight judged by all of us together.

Hi all ,

 

I think because of the harsh times out there competition will be open to all.

 

Voting and submissions close 20th .

 

Winner announced 21st

 

Game on again 22nd .

 

 

pretty simple .............now get cracking.

 

 

 

So one vote per member and no changing your vote once cast ...so post carefully.

There will be NO retracting your VOTE once the edit function ends.

 

This will be fun lads and ladies , I wish you all the best.

And if you vote for yourself everybody knows it. Hahaha, I'm sure somebody will though. So we get ONE photo correct? No more no less!

Good point Carbine ............

 

I think one would do the effort and entry an in-justice.

 

After much thought I honestly think there should it should be limited to four.

 

Front

Back

2 close up ..........what-ever you want that floats you boat.

 

This way we all have a level playing field , and not 47 posts per entry, but on the other hand am I wrong in my thoughts , what says ye?

Owen,

 

This sounds like fun.

 

As I understand it you are going to open a new thread each month with a poll on the 22nd that is open to all? You will then close the poll on the following 20th and count the votes and announce the winner on the 21st. Then, everything starts over again on the 22nd of each month.

 

Great idea!

Just throwing this out there....can this idea be expanded to include a display that doesn't necessarily involve a dummy/mannequin/torso?....as not everyone has a dummy or mannequin, I'm thinking along the lines of a "tribute" display that shows a variety of related period items for a specific campaign/tour/battle/invasion etc (set up maybe with a helmet and/or tunic with related regalia or patches, field equipment, weaponry around it or something similar) assembled in a cohesive and distinct manner.

 

The idea is to be inclusive to all forum members who may not have a mannequin type display....or does this complicate things too much..? :think:

 

(I have a few torso dummies so I'm set for the contest, I was just thinking of others who may not have any)

Rick ,

I think that would mix this up to much , keeping it simple is key.

Now why not have a different thread with the other displays as the focus.

 

Launch day is tomorrow .........

 

So get cracking .

 

Thanks Sarge for the support .

copy that, thanks Owen....just thought I'd see what you thought of this...and I agree, maybe another, separate thread is the way to go at some point, but let's see how this one works first
