The Big Mek Challenge seems to have caught on in a big way, which is great. As suggested by Orrik, we've pinned this thread to give you all a place to post links to the threads in the Mek's Garage.

What we suggest is that you organise your challenges by PM or in a thread here in the Fightin' Pit, then one of the challengers posts an announcement about the challenge here, with a link to the thread in the Mek's Garage. The announcement can be a simple post, or you can include a bit of fluff and/or humour - remember you're trying to attract an audience. Rather than posting again on the same challenge, you should update the original post as you like (for instance, when the challenge has been won you could edit the original post to say who the winner is).

You may want to start a new voting thread in the Trophy Rack when you've finished painting your models (asuming the challenge includes painting - if it doesn't then the voting thread should be in the Mek's Garage). That's up to you. If you do start a new thread for voting, just remember to update the links here so people know where to go to vote.

It would be a good idea not to fill this thread with posts discussing the challenges, or it will be harder for people to find the relevant links. If necessary, the HQ will prune this thread to keep it clean.

We'll see how this goes. It shouldn't be necessary to have a whole lot of rules, as we think the forum's Big Meks can be trusted to agree on the terms of the challenge (or, failing that, to sort out out the traditional way with lump hammers at dawn). We're assuming you'll be determining the winner by use of the voting buttons. One issue is prizes. You can agree between yourselves that the winner of a challence gets something, but it's nothing to do with the HQ and we won't get involved in any disputes (other than to kick heads if people break forum rules). So perhaps you might want to just enter these challenges for the glory and adulation rather than material gain.

Remember you can nominate the best builds for including in the Oila'z Blooprintz or the Bigmek Klassiks.

To date, there have been 3 challenges:

Sukigod v Uberdark - Boomwagon Build (Challenge won by Skuigod; both models are now immortalised as Klassiks).

Ug Thok v Dakkabu - Da Warbike Boogaloo (Still underway).

Orrik v Magus Gar Kan - Da Looted Wagon Buildoff (Still underway).

Check them out if you haven't already! Happy modelling!

Please post a notice of your challenge in this thread when you start the challenge!

The inordinate amount of new challenges that have been created are not conforming to the above rule, Which means that less people see them. It is of benefit to both you and your fellow forum members If you post a notice in here. as you can see from the above post, I have already posted a link to DKoK and RB's challenge. From now on it is your responsibility!

Sorry if I was a bit above myself mods and admins, I just think that there should be a notice in here for each challenge.
