(IKC) International Knex Competition Answered

Hey everyone. I am hosting a new contest starting tomorrow. Every week there will be a new section. The winner each week will be given 5 points. This will go on for two months. At the end of the two months whoever has the most points wins. And if there is a tie, a judge will decide who has done the best work overall. Anybody can enter but comment here and tell that you will be participating so I can get a list going. Round 1: You have one week to build the best pistol you can. Its as simple as that. Now you cant enter a gun Thats already posted. You have to design it yourself. Good luck. How to enter: Post an instructable or video of your pistol. And notify me by posting the link in this forum. Deadline: Enter by your pistol by July 4, 2009. Judges: Killer~SafeCracker I_am_Canadian Serial-Cricket Participants for round 1: yannyboy stale56 Good luck now start building. Update: I am canceling the contest for now. I will be reopening the contest later but I am going to organize it better. Sorry if this caused any inconvenience.

I guess I'll try it, I have nothing to lose. And is it alright if the gun is an RBG? AND what are you going to be judging the guns on?

Sure just post a video or instructable for it. I’ll be rating the pistols on: Looks Innovation Power And use in a war. The non-gun rounds will be rated on a different scale.

And I won't be able to participate in 1 or 2 of the rounds because I'm going on vacation next Friday to Thursday, so that's what is going on if I don't respond then. And I have the gun built, I just need to make it more reliable.

He said pistol. as long as its a one hand gun, it should be ok.

Sorry, but I'm withdrawing. I want to concentrate on Viccie's.

Maybe you could try running this in the future? I know yours was first, but Viccie's is so much more organised...

I'll be postponing the contest for now and will be getting more organized

Hmm, maybe. Does a (very) modded ZLG oodammo repeater count as my own gun? And do you have to post instructions for each gun? If so, count me out.

if it is modded so that you cant even recognize the original gun, then yeah, I guess its yours.

It's basically the handle, trigger mech, and pin. I may even change the handle because it looks weedy compared to the gun now...

My trigger mech can be entered as someone else's gun?

Ok, I was just checking though at this stage. No problem with that, I'll just do something else.

This is badly planned. The points system will not work if you have too many people, say you have 8 people, each one of them wins one week, who wins then?

All I have to say is if you don’t like it don’t enter it.

seconded. This contest is too long, has too many rounds, and the deadlines are too short. Also, there will be too many entries to judge, no elimination rounds.

Exactly. The other contest by Viccie is Better. MUCH BETTER.

If you don’t like it that’s fine. But for the record Viccie copied it from me.
