Any users that fail to comply will be on suspension. Any contestant that votes for his/her model with other usernames will be disqualified, and put on suspension. A separate voting thread for each category will be made.


Progress Thread:
A progress thread must be made to enter with the title of the thread labeled Contest Entry. If you do not have a thread labeled contest entry, the entry will not count.


Deadline:
The deadline for final picture entry will be 12:00AM EST December 1, 2004

Submission:
All entries must be submitted by the deadline. Entries are limited to one picture, a link to the completion thread, and a link to the progress. Please submit your entry by private message to GTmike400. The PM must contain the following: Username, Modifications, Vehicle, ONE picture of the final product, link to the completion thread (optional), link to the progress thread (optional).

Um, its perfectly suitable. Its controversial, but suitable. Im not going to say bye bye forever. We have had these problems before with other contests, they are usually put on suspension until contest voting is over.

Re: Re: 2004 Best Modified Diecast Contest

I don't think people care how many modifications you have as long as the car looks good. A simple rim swap may be too little but you don't have to chop your car to pieces and rebuild it to have a fine looking car. Don't feel intimidated.
