SHIT.


I am alive and will begin judging tonight! Apologies, been busy with life and shit. Mostly shit.


EDIT:

Entries have been judged! I think that's the most I've ever posted at once, this calls for a drink or three.

Thanks, mate. Glad you're not dead.

Tomorrow last day for judging for final judges scores.
If they're not in, I'll ask for a replacement judge.

Scores are in! There a couple topics not marked with BB17 that have had scores submitted to them. I'm assuming they're not up for judging?

They were on Quantum's list so I think they are up for judging. :mystery:

If they're on the list at the bottom of the OP, they're meant for judging.

I found two that need judging.

Goldman Sucks

Immortal Head-Hunters

For future reference, please make a new thread entirely for contest entries to cut down on confusion, even if it is a copy of something you've posted in another thread. As long as it's an original build, I don't foresee a problem.

Also, after this contest is finalized, any future contest posts not tagged with the contest identifier will be disqualified at the time of judging.

Judgment has been passed. Sorry about those last few, I didn't know there was a list in the OP, I just used the search function for anything with BB17 in the title.

Thanks to all participants for your entries into this year's Blarney Build.

Another astoundingly successful contest, we had 30 entries by 14 unique participants, which is on par with last year. We really got a diverse range of builds this year, from the very small to the very large, with a good deal of complexity and cleverness inherent in each. I didn't envy the judges their jobs this year but, on that note, I'd like to thank them as well for the extraordinary job they did. I'm was very glad to see constructive criticisms and additional comments made along with the scores. Props particularly to aoffan, who found something positive to say about every build. I hope that this year's contest and its many badass entries will inspire more builds in the immediate future and I look forward to next year's buildoff. Honorary mentions this year go to Captain Camper for his extraordinary Walking Tank, a build I know he spent a great deal of time on and which won an easily deserved second place in Brik by Brik and Duerer, the only builder so good, he tied with himself. Without further ado, I announce the hugely deserving winner (who holds 5 of the top 6 spots) of this year's contest:
