Transformer Challenge Update

Yes, the December Challenge is still happening. I've just decided to post all of the entires at once - when the contest closes. (So far I have entries from Doug, Pumpkinetics, George Fox, and Dan Main.)

I know this is a change from the normal "post as I get 'em" methodology, but there's only a week left to the challenge anyway.

Next time we'll go back to the normal routine...and hopefully pick a contest that will garner a few more entries!

Ahh now two more questions

1, How do I sighn up for a RSS feed for your blog

2, Can I sighn up for your forum?

Christopher Doyle said...

Doug:

1: Go get a RSS Reader

2: No. They're closed for a reason. (That being I don't have the time to maintain them.) A few folks who had signed up while they were active can still access them, but only until I get around to removing the forum entirely. (Which might be never, might be tomorrow, but will probably be with the next major site overhaul.)

Ok now two other thing, (Im so demanding! :p )

1, Could you tell your forum members that I have a (lego) forum that could use more members? Mabey I'll get some sympathy sighn ups.....

2, Look at your titel on my forum! I find it resnobly celver ;)

Oh well ok I have one more thing.
On my Forum can.... well you know your a member..... Ok Ill just say it, Your a member, You have a web site, Fairly popular, Can I set up an acount named oh I dont know "Reasnobly clever RSS" And When ever you have a new post in your blog Ill or you (probly me, Your really busy) will copy that post and post it at my forum?

Doug:

The old forum members all post to the blog as well, so they've already seen your plug for your forum.

As to reposting the RSS feed...there are many widgets out there that let you publish a news feed (like the Reasonably Clever RSS feed) to your web page. If you want to hook something like that up, go for it. (And no, I'm not going to research how to do that for you.) As to reposting the content directly as forum posts on your site? That'd be a bit too close to copyright infringement for my tastes, unless you were going to link back to the post here each time. (As an RSS feed listing automatically does).

A more important concern, though, is your reliance on copying my stuff. Why would anyone go to your site if you did, considering the source will always be here at RC?

If you want people to visit your site you need original content, not a xerox of my stuff.

In that case Gmail works! Yay!

Where did you get the stuff about my site? My site's down Im working on my website.... I just know that some of my members like your comic and might like your blog posts there... Yah I just made an account for my forum called "Lego Sanctum RSS" and I am posting at my blog on my site and copying and posting it with my RSS thingy, I just was wondering if you wanted that cause your a member.....

abbout the contest how many entries from each person have you got.becase if theve only entered once each there have only been 4 entries.it sais there is 1 1st prize and 3 second prizes.1+3=4.just thought id point that out.

Christopher Doyle said...

somesome:

Just one entry each so far - so yeah, if you've entered you've won. Assuming no one else submits something. In which case, the odds are VERY good...

doug7172 said...

Sweet! But to be safe I might try to make one other entry....

I can't wait to see your contest winners. I can't even begin to figure out how to design a mech that transforms.

I do have a contest suggestion of sorts - well, if you can call it a contest, and if you haven't already done it.

Build a mech using the part palette containing parts from the Factory in LEGO Digital Designer.

To qualify for entry, I'd suggest that entries must load into LEGO Digital Designer without too many illegal part errors so that there's a complete mech in the model window. They can be designed in the CAD program of the submitter's choice as long as they fulfill the Factory palette requirement.
