Logic Boy CAN NOT enter a wildcard slot.  

He posted his entrie before the wild card slots are open.

It's the Truth!

Yes, but wildcard slots are open Oct. 20-25. He posted his entrie 15 days before the wildcard slots are open.

Also, do you really think that all the contestents will enter something? Just wondering.

Not that I'm mad or nothing, but I did make a video showing the qualites of my SKAK. I even have proof(on my forum). Also, what about the new stock?

Just pointin' em' out.

Nobody can view the MOFF file, so I can't judge anything from the video.  I still don't like the new stock.  I like that you used bendies this time, but some parts are still bent and I am not a fan of bent stocks in the first place.
