    I know what I want to do, I have my build order sketched out in my head, I just need to get around to actually doing it.

    And grabbing a screenshot of the thing it's inspired by.

    That said, bear in mind that spreading your efforts across 3 builds will almost certainly dilute your quality. Anytime I've found myself with 3 (or 4) awesome ideas, I found out later that at least 2 of them (a) didn't qualify because of a prereq I skipped or a rule I misread, (b) was a copy of an existing build on this or other forums, and/or (c) was just absolute garbage that only seemed cool when I was drunk.

    Screw the scores, if you are drinking and think it's cool then you already won. I'm actually fairly sure most judges will agree with that.

    Or you could post it openly so all the judges know who made what, and we can all laugh at the newbie.

    Yes, but you shouldn't reveal such telling details, lest we be able to determine which build is yours. I suggest you edit that out.

    Bad news bears, Iron Chefs:

    The TABLE code is changing. This is being done as part of upgrades to the site that will make the Table a more dynamic, useful function. However, it also means that all existing tables (including those in past rounds) will be broken. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, as we will need to update our OP to include the new table formats once the changes go live.

    Just saw that as I logged on. Frankly, the biggest worry for me is that old tables won't automatically change over.

    Oh, they absolutely won't. The mods are kind enough to change the brackets in the old threads so the code is preserved, but it won't present itself as a table.

    Either that or we'll scrap it and just operate off of the trusted Google Doc (which I need to update for recent rounds).
