Carl you are correct, there was definitely a truck submitted ??? John was entering it on behalf of his father I believe :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

Thought I'd make a chat thread to keep the submission thread in order for the voters in a few day time :thumbup:

And now to explain.

When I spot a rule infringement, I prefer to send the submitters a PM. Saves embarrassment etc.

Sadly the truck submission broke this part of rule five.
"No entries submitted on someone else's behalf"
This rule is an expansion to the rule;
"Must be a forum member to participate" which has been the rule from the start of the TOTM.

And as much as I wanted the truck to stay (it really is my personal favourite looking truck), I had to make a decision that I didn't like doing.

And now I've created this thread so it can be openly discussed (if anyone wishes) without derailing the submission thread.

Regards.
Mick.

Mick, why is PJ 66 not welcome? Is that a rule I don't know about, when you win you're not allowed to enter the next month? Has he won too many times? Is there a limit on how many times you can win?

I'm not complaining, or trying to start any trouble, I'm just trying to learn the rules.

I wouldn't mind someone entering a tank for someone else, as long as the two guys are related. For John to put in his father's tank is just fine with me, but I sure wouldn't want to see professional Builders having someone on The Forum enter their models for them. I would say the best thing to do on that rule is take it on a case-by-case basis and Mick's decision will be final.

And if we can't make an exception for the truck, can you at least post a photo or two here so that we can see what we were missing?

Gary, thank you, this is what I needed, people to voice their opinions.
The rules were made up, argued over and agreed before I took over. I made the decision based on those rules.
I want to see this truck entered, but I decided when I took over that I would be as impartial as I possibly could be.

We could take up your suggestion, whereby it's up to my decision, I'm ok with that, but it could cause problems down the line. Also, I'll need more support for your idea from more members.

You will find the truck here.

And now to answer your question about why Mr Panzerjaeger66 is not allowed to enter this month.
It has always been the rule that the winner of the previous months TOTM is excluded from entering the following month, see rules lol.
Particularly rule seven.

TOTM rules of engagement. - RC Tank Warfare
viewtopic.php?f=203&t=26425

Although, looking back over the winners gallery, one can see there were a few rule infringements regarding this rule. Even though I appear to have allowed this to happen myself, this was in January after the Christmas special. I wasn't at the time considering the Christmas special to be a normal TOTM monthly competition.

No worries! I agree with that rule and on the other hand it gives me more time to finish models 8)

I'm not sure what you mean :think:
All entries look finished.
If someone were to post an unfinished model, I'm sure the voting would go accordingly.

Ah, the penny just dropped, you mean, people get to finish their projects to enter, so people like you and me need our own competition for incomplete work :haha:
