Title: Poll for the First GB of the Year/Forum...
Post by: GTX_Admin on January 15, 2012, 10:23:11 AM
Hi folks,

As promised, here is the Poll for the first Group Build of the Year/Forum.  I have tried to include all the suggestions made.  Some that I have excluded are those linked to a particular anniversary/date (e.g. Falklands Anniversary) plus a couple of the single platform themed ones - I figured with this first GB we want to be as inclusive as possible and unfortunately, single platform builds are hard to do with that.  Another that I have held off on is a "Blown deadline" Build - I think we will have this towards the end of th year to catch all those that qualify...

You can read the posts made in the Ideas and Suggestions for GBs/Themed Builds (http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=49.0) thread for more info before making your choice.  In general though, the following describe the candidates:



Anyway, go vote.  You have one vote but are allowed to change it should you change your mind.  I do ask that you take special care when choosing and especially give thought to choosing a theme that will allow for maximum participation by those from all forms of modelling (physical and pixel).

Voting closes Sunday, 29 January 2012.

Regards,

Greg

I went with the

"Anything Goes"/'Strut Your Stuff, the introductory Group Build" - you name it, just do it in the timeframe.  Preferably you do you favourite type of theme

I plan on doing my no guts no glory (I must be crazy :o) build idea.

I too went with anything goes, simply because I haven't touched plastic in over a year and thought it might be safest for me, and a nice overall introduction for everybody else.

While almost all of these interest me, I too went with "Anything Goes" as it seems perfect for an introductory GB and a great way for folks to show off what they've got a flair for.

Another for "Anything Goes" from me. While I generally prefer rather tighter GBs, this seems likea good idea to get things started.

By the way, are the poll results displaying oddly for anyone else? I'm getting the bars and numbers for the bottom half of the list displayed to the right of those for the top half of the list.... ???

Seeing the above list makes me rather hope we work our way through all of them.      :)

It looks like we have a definitive winner.  I will be setting up the GB later today (my time).  Proposed duration is 1 Feb - 31 Mar.  I am happy to Moderate this first one, though am also equally happy for someone else to take the role.  If anyone wants to, then PM me in the next 12hrs.

Regards,

Greg

Will there also be a pixel element for this Group Build?

You bet there will be and a story element if people prefer that medium.

I voted for Sci Fi... only because I need a nudge to finally build the Danube-class Winnebago Runabout I've been thinking about for years. :)
