Let me add : the idea was to do a big custom contest, between all the best darthers among the different Zoids forums. So several forums will have their qualifying contest before the end of 2007 (for Zoidfans, it is the Sea Contest), and it is your chance to get to the Grand Finale. I hope we will have plenty of participant. Zoids Nexus will join the race too, it is the first time we will compete with japaneses.
You people better put forward a show like you did for the 2007 forum contest! Seriously, I think there was stuff in that that outdid the most recent Zoidscore contest, even if we didn't have as many entries. It was quite fun running it, so I'm looking forward muchly to being involved in this.
People on multiple sites...you can enter for all of them, just one...whatever suits your fancy. If you win multiple times you'll have to pick a single entry to send on, but there's nothing stopping you otherwise.
As for started before the contest - I'm not sure. Current house rules are a definite no, and we'll probably follow at least some of them this round. Sorry about that if so.
Speaking of which: our contest for this will likely be the racing theme suggested a few times in the 2007 contest thread...so zed, you can expect some poking once things are getting better organized.
