Monthly update: July (New guns and contests)

Picture of Monthly update: July (New guns and contests)
So my last gun was posted months ago. In the past months, I haven't been dozing off. I made maybe two dozen new guns. There will soon appear an I'ble with most of my failed and/or old projects. Including new concepts, variations on other concepts, new guns and I'm currently making a K'nex gunner box with everything you need as a K'nex gunner. I"m also thinking of making an amusement game with slots or something else. 

Anyways, Here is the monthly update July:

Knexgurl's birthday was this month. HOORAY
KGB got his 250th subscriber this month.
Most guns made in July were old mechs in a new case. Except for Senior Waffleman and the other participants of Oblivitus' and Thedunkis' K'nex Innovation Contest. They made FMG9's and other innovative cool things. Keep up the good work guys!
Dr Richtofen posted more models, they look great Dr but why not make a shooting gun once?
I'blers have a lot more time to post cool stuff these days because it's summer vacation. Enjoy the sun and be sure not to burn.

K'nexers of the month:

1: Blackshadow12
2: K'nexgurl

For the awesome guns they made this month!

I'm holding a little vacation contest. I'm sure you also have too much free time sometimes.  Stop eating icecream and take a sprint to your K'nex because I'm holding a K'nex Pinball Contest
Make your own K'nex pinball machine with different paths and stuff. 
Post a picture of it in the comments and I"ll add you to my participants of the contest.
The first price is a subscribe and the first pictures of my new gun in a PM.

Now run to your room and get building (don't forget to open the window)

dare i say the obvious? wrong, failed and useless.

wrong - i was extremely active in july with quite a few guns that were newer and more innovative than anything else you wrote up there. kinetic and innovanna were also finishing their long kinno-1 project which is very innovative. you have to search for things and look around before you make these types of assessments, and even then i wouldn't make them. they don't help anyone.

failed - you can't just declare a contest just like that. you have to get people's attention first (by already having a lot of followers, talking with people and notifying them about it and so on), and you have to make it organized, have it's own 'ible, explain the rules, the deadline and the do's and don't's. you can either not offer a prize if you have nothing real to offer (a subscription and an early view of something that no one is necessarily interested in aren't sufficient. you need something like a pro membership, a collab, a great concept or just a title that is accepted in the community by other knexers), or you can offer something actually valuable. there are several more reasons, but those are the highlights to why you got no entries. it's just ridiculous you decided to P.S. a contest like this when you don't have anyone noticing it.

useless - no one is interested in reading this. anyone who would be interested would just search the guns himself, instead of looking into someone's wrong, understated and one-time-only 'ible describing (wrongly. have i said that?) the guns posted that month. if you want to have a knex gun newsletter, you have to be persistent, gain the stigma of a good newsletter and some followers to read your newsletter. for that you need to study, look around, let people know you're doing this and so on.

You're right, however I don't really appreciate your way of talking. Constructive critism is right, however
Writing a long comment full of hating isn't the right way. I advice you to be a little more discrete kiddo. I'll take your advice in consideration though.
