PostSubject: next atltf build off thoughts/suggestions small talk   Mon Sep 01, 2014 7:20 pm

yup... lol i wanted to post it here about this topic cause with the atltf build off ending i wanted to make sure i didnt clutter up other forum or post but...i know this one has been a long one and was extended to help others out cause they needed more time but, I'm curious to see when the next one will be and i'm pretty sure ill be able to finish the next one lol kids in school now and i have 6 hours a day by my self to do what ever!! so well see what happens but i was wondering that in the next build off there might be 3 categories for the build off like for example 1. Mudding mowers 2. Pulling tractors 3. Racing mowers just a suggestion is all and i know some of you are thinking....why are u bringing this up when the first one just ended 2 days ago lol well curiosity is it my friends lol

If they start another build off relatively soon then i can enter my mudding/racing tractor but i'm sure it will be awhile before they do another one.

I very much doubt there will be individual categories. Why?

Well- what do we have right now- 5 finishers? Could you imagine how silly it would be trying to pick 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place out of 5 finishers in 3 categories? 'Nuff said.

Perhaps in the years to come, interest will be great enough to warrant it. Meanwhile... 5 finishers.

I sincerely hope we get more finishers next time through. We had a lot of people that entered, though.

For the next one, we're going to have to all put our heads together to try to figure out how to best improve the odds that a lot more people will see it through. If it were me, I'd like to see 15 or more finishers, so the vote gets to be a real nail-biter!

I say next one should be exactly one year long. Because some people have more time in the summer like kids that are out of school, while older folk like mentioned above have more time while the kids are at school. I say start on new years and end on new years. That would be fair for all.

Well, you'll get one more entry than you would have otherwise, if you'll allow what I have already been working on, to be entered at whatever stage it is at, (maybe even finished?) in the next one.

Otherwise, I will have built and crashed two during this contest, and have already started the next one, so if it isn't allowed, I'll miss the next contest as well.

I don't think we should do a money prize if anything I'd say we should have the admins get together and build something and have that be the prize

Y'all have to remember though. These fine Admins of ours don't get paid at all for hosting this wonderful forum.  If they'd build something you gotta remember that it will what it will take to ship it.  Like Doug had the tools and peerless manuals and stuff. That can all be put into a small USPS Flat-Rate box and shipped. Most likely if they'd build something it would be fairly large, and shipping would be tremendous. I think the prizes should be somewhat close to what they are now.

Stickers are a must though... (we all love stickers, Right?)

Right you are, sir! An further to that... Doug Fackler went entirely out-of-pocket on the prizes for this contest. Huge props for that, he most certainly did not have to.

Next time! The prep time should be longer, to gather parts and so on.

Doesn't look like ill participate next year. Unless I can do a go kart or mini bike deal, I'm out. I think that it should be the same time as this years buildoff, but more prep announcement time. Months in advance

Then... Go over the builds and vote based on the images you see, and the text you read. I feel a video (while helpful) doesn't always convey how much work went into a project.

Please... vote based on what info you DO have available.
