  • December 26, 2011 (UTC), like it says on the page. NightblazeSaber 01:03, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

No point me entering. Not shipping to Australia. Can we do a compromise somehow?--User:Crazed Penguin/PossibleXmasSig 07:09, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

  • The shipping isn't up to us, it's up to Wikia who are supplying and holding the prizes, who can only ship to the US or UK. NightblazeSaber 07:12, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
  • Do I just have to make a review, or do I have to tell the judges about it?

SuperSpyX Tell me your secrets You cannot hide 12:39, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

You have to add it to the entries page. Jag 17:52, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

Age Requirements

  • Shouldn't there be a section in the rules stating that persons under the age of eighteen years old should obtain a parent's/legal guardian's consent?  Zaersk  Talk  Contribs  (MOC) (Blog) 23:04, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
    Should there? ajr 23:08, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
    I would suggest. Its up to you guys. Because some states require individuals entering the contest to be 18 or older. And some say you have to be 13 or older but have a parent or legal guardian's consent.  Zaersk  Talk  Contribs  (MOC) (Blog) 23:12, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
    Well, in this case, we want people under 18 to be able to enter... Jag 03:15, December 22, 2011 (UTC)
    Why can't we just add it? It can't hurt can it? NightblazeSaber 04:16, December 22, 2011 (UTC)
    Well do we want it? Jag 04:35, December 22, 2011 (UTC)
    I don't think its a matter of decision of do we want it or not?. It should be there - not all laws in the US, some US states, and the UK are the same; there are different jurisdictions in different places. And if you're going to say the contest is open to all residents residing in the US, for example, and some states have certain laws regarding this matter, you might as well just add it for the welfare of the people dwelling in those specific places. This is just my opinion, you guys are the Administrators of this site.  Zaersk  Talk  Contribs  (MOC) (Blog) 05:54, December 22, 2011 (UTC)
    entering the contest - by that you mean this contest, or any contest? Jag 06:31, December 22, 2011 (UTC)
    Any contests :D  Zaersk  Talk  Contribs  (MOC) (Blog) 15:36, December 22, 2011 (UTC)

Review of unreleased product

Time entered: is of a yet unreleased product expected in 2012. Is this fair? SuperSpyX Tell me your secrets You cannot hide 18:17, December 22, 2011 (UTC)

I saw that, but I've been trying not to look at the reviews right away, I want to try and be more fair by reading them all at roughly the same time (not literally). It is only fair if he actually owns it. If he doesn't, I think that entry should be removed, along with the review. --Berrybrick (Talk) It's a Christmas miracle, Mr. Freeze!

Photo of prizes

Could someone get pictures of the prizes? I know what the V-wing starfighter is, but I don't know what everything else is.

Is the magnet set Lego? SuperSpyX Tell me your secrets You cannot hide 18:34, December 23, 2011 (UTC)

Really poorly run and formatted contest

I'd just like to take a minute now to point out how much this contest has not accomplished anything, not doubt as a result of two major things:

  • Only previously active users were allowed to enter.
  • The type of reviews were limited to Star Wars only.

Unless anyone here would actually consider five reviews (one of which might be removed) 3 days before the contest ends a huge success.

What a wasted opportunity, this could have been used to kick-start the reviews here. ajr 18:51, December 23, 2011 (UTC)

I agree with the Star Wars thing, but not the previously active users. --Berrybrick (Talk) It's a Christmas miracle, Mr. Freeze! XMAS.PNG 18:52, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
Why? What possible good does it do to reduce this to just a reward for previously active users? All that does is not tempt people to get involved with Brickipedia, which this could have done. ajr 18:55, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
Support - making it open to anyone. Jag 19:41, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
I'm okay with it being open to anyone. --Berrybrick (Talk) It's a Christmas miracle, Mr. Freeze! XMAS.PNG 19:48, December 23, 2011 (UTC)
  • Per Berrybrick.

SKP4472 Talk [[Special:Editcount/SKP4472|Special:Editcount/SKP4472 Edits!]] -3470 days left until Christmas! 19:50, December 23, 2011 (UTC)

  • Just making it open to everyone with three days left doesn't do much... can we extend the deadline another week as well? ajr 20:41, December 23, 2011 (UTC)

This contest was good incentive for me. It got me started on reviews, so far I have made seven. Three days is still awhile, three of the entries were posted on one day.

Oops, sorry about the double post. SuperSpyX Tell me your secrets You cannot hide 20:34, December 23, 2011 (UTC)

Star Wars

When you say "Star Wars" I assume you mean LEGO Star wars? Agent Swipe(talk) 04:44, December 25, 2011 (UTC)

Who won?

What's the holdup? The date to announce the winners has been changed twice!

SuperSpyX Tell me your secrets You cannot hide 12:46, January 2, 2012 (UTC)

  • One or two judges still haven't responded yet. I have proposed that we go ahead without the judges who haven't voted and tally up the votes, but there hasn't been any response to that either... Sorry for the holdup :S NightblazeSaber 01:23, January 3, 2012 (UTC)
