    Sorry Krumlink, but the last thing needed is a crappy 'freewebs' website, it's really a sign of poor quality and no effort.

    Proper websites don't cost much at all, and look far more professional.

    These details needed for me & to others I'm waiting for replies.

    Can I know when we going to start this competition?

    When is the final date?

    can we put our own projects?

    Do we have 2nd, 3rd...prizes?

    Where we going to post our projects, video's etc?

    There is a new competitions column has put by EM.But cannot start a thread.

    Without knowing these terms how can we participate?

    That was about 10 posts back. An independant website looks like a dead issue, it makes sense to hold the contest here.

    Mostly we need to cool our jets till the powers that be get this sorted out. From what I understand it is being worked out.

    Hello all,

    We have some progress on the comp situation. The forums have been setup and we now have two new helpers at Electro Tech, 3v0 and Krumlink. Welcome aboard guys. They will be assisting with the running of competions and judging. And over the next few days we will be fine tune the first competition and will get it up and running shortly.

    Yes and I am currently setting up the first competiton and selecting a panel of judges that I see fit. As a judge, you cannot enter a competiton. Complete details below:

    As a judge you may not vote upon favoring that person, but only as each catagory is deemed fit. for example if 4 out of 5 judges give size a rating of 1 but judge 5 gives a rating of 10, each judge must then give a reason or when they do send the ratings to me they have to explain why they chose that value.

    As a judge you also may not enter any competitons, or if you do want to enter a copmetiton, you must premessage me before I start the competition and you must drop out as a judge. Message me for questions.

    As a judge you must also select a type of prize you want to send to the winner, and prizes must be a prize that the members want to fight over, aka nobody is going to want some alkaline batteries, but they will want to fight over some NIMH batteris and charger perhaps?

    I cannot wait to get started!

    _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    I am still working on the judges part. I believe the system I have set up and PMed to certain members will be the most fair system.

    So when will be hosted this competition? on electro-tech?

    How many judges will judge the projects? How can someone apply to be a judge? (i am talking about that since i am a qualified mechatronics engineer, during my master studies, so i don't have time to build a project, but still want to participate!)

    There will be 5 judges, they also must be very active members.

    Rami: The Judges will make more sense, since it will not be a great system to have votes.

    Is it possible for someone to critic the projects maybe 3 judges. Then they display maybe why they thought that way about it(Not to extremely lengthily)

    Then we read and try to understand it and then that person would get a popular vote from all of us as well.



    Edit: The popular vote will have no effect on the results. Judges stand supreme.
