Out of Africa Rules
« on: July 27, 2019, 05:38:41 AM »
Well, here we go, my first moderation job. I'll do my best.

Rules:

1. The Out of Africa GB begins at 00:00 on the 1st of August Local Time, and shall run until 23:59 on the 31st of October Local Time (with the potential for extensions at the moderator's discretion).
2. Entries may take any form (physical model, digital profile, story, interpretative dance, it's up to you).
3. Entries must represent some sort of subject closely related to Africa - either in service with an African nation or having been designed and built in an African nation (so a South African design in service with Sri Lanka, for  example, would be fine). If you have any doubts about an entry, it's best to enquire before starting.
4. Already started entries are permissible, as long as they are mostly incomplete. Once more, if you have any doubts, just ask.
5. Have fun!
6. That's it. Extra rules to be found on Page 94.

Never trust a man who tells you that you have too many paints, for he is obviously a liar and will most likely try to deceive you again in future.

Sounds good to me! Now for a little research.

At least you're more organised than someone moderating a current GB who shall remain nameless. :-[

Does it include aircraft and ships involved in the embargoes of Rhodesia?

The moderation has contacted me to say they think it would be better to keep the GB as only one poll, and as such I am in the process of merging the two back into one single set.

No, not just a single poll.  The Rhodesian Bush War Sub-GB is to be merged into the overall Out of Africa GB.  There will be only one GB.  That does not exclude Rhodesian Bush War themed topics since, last time I checked Rhodesia/Zimbabwe was part of Africa.

Correction: two polls (physical and non-physical).

Sorry everyone that I havenít been very active in recent weeks, Iíve had a hell of a lot going on surrounding school and now Iím getting a break, but Iím off sailing, so, no modelling (I donít want to try and glue things together while a boat is heeling at 20 degrees or more....). As such, unless anyone has any objection to me doing so, Iíd like to extend this GB by two weeks or so, which should be enough to actually get multiple finished physical entries.....

See my message above. If people think it would be best to just call it a day and move my one item to the Clear Your Workbench, Iím happy to do so but personally Iíd quite like to finish it and at least have multiple physical entries.

At some point while I was asleep last night, this GB came to an end. It would have been nice to get some more entries, but, even so, I had fun with mine and I can only apologise for my inactivity.

Thanks to everyone who took part and everyone who stopped by for a look.
