In light of that, is there any restrictions on the size of the ships? I saw something about maximum size being 2 baseplates, but I'm not sure if it applies to that category.

Great categories this year! :)

One quick question, can we use custom third party pieces such as Brickforge, Brickarms, Brickwarriors and Altbricks in the two Miscellaneous Categories? In previous years it was allowed but it wasn't specified this time.

8. We will get back to you with the answer to that one.

9. The third party pieces are only allowed in customizing categories.

Question please.

1. Does the medieval warship category have to be realistic? Can it be fantasy in nature such as featuring Orcs and Sea serpents. Does it actually have to be a sea-going vessel - i am thinking of building something like a flying-dragon-warship-thing with orcs leaping on to a fortress wall. NOT steampunk no definitely not going there, but using medieval castle set style - wood, sails, wizards and magic.

My entry hasn't shown up yet... I posted it last night... Is it a bug in the system? Or did I do something wrong? Thanks!

10. You put your entries in a "folder" or "set" or "album" and link it in the entry form. The entry for CCC with only show one photo on the page, but it will link.

12. Nothing is wrong. All entries have to go through an individual review by the admins before they show up on the entry page. It will show up once it is approved. If it doesn't, you will end up on the "naughty list" and be told what needs to be fixed for it to be approved.

Please be patient with us. I know that annoys many of you, but like you, your admins have lives other than CCC. We log in and do what we can when we can. But currently, family and real life work obligations are the distractions. We WILL get it approved.

Oh don't be sorry. Asking is good. We're a friendly but busy bunch, but we know we fall behind. So periodically we give the "please be patient" comment...which has in the past annoyed. Sometimes we forget what it is like to be on the builders side of a contest. But we do the best we can.

Well, I am just respecting those who take time out of their life for my enjoyment. ;) Man, every year... That must be rough... :P

Was mine not approved? Mark of Falworth's build came out, but mine still hasn't...

Also, is posting it in the Castle Mocs Forum different than entering an entry in the contest page? If that is why, that would be what I am having trouble with...
