A idea I need to run by you all

Don't lose heart. 
People are just busy these days.  Look at some of the past YbtC contests, many of those had gaps in the submission longer than a few days.  May I add a suggestion?  Perhaps run the next contest as an actual contest, with tight submission entry rules and a submission deadline of a few weeks, maybe a month, and then have a voting time or judges and select a winner.  Having some kind of reward like adding "Winner of YbtOP #x..." in the participants signature is a good way to peak interest for some.  



I'm not losing heart, just focus a bit. You all your guys blessing, I create a contest of some sort. But will you guys go for a contest where the point is to make the most mind-blowing, overpowered, extreme character build of a a sort type/topic? 

If so, here's my setup: 
1) Different name: To seperate it from the existing YBtO threads
2) 30 days to submit builds, 2 weeks for voting, 6 week turnaround total. I know we all have lives and other stuff to think about, done, work, etc. This timeframe seems the best I can think of.
3) Winners would have the same ability to add the title of Winner of You Build the (blank) #(blank) to your fourm sig. 

I will full commit to this only with you guys' input and support. Let me know.

I'd be up for it, sounds fun. I think you should leave the parameters of each contest fairly vague, though-with some wiggle room it will be more interesting.

I would certainly be up for it.  

While I do suggest somewhat loose parameters for the contest, as CHIA said, I would suggest putting a specific PB on it, especially if we are creating builds to be OP in competitiveness.

May I submit the Jedi build I made for the YbtOP #2 thread in the Jedi one?  It was pretty kickass and I'm quite proud of it

My little munchkin is asleep so I figured I'd get in on this. I generally don't do the YBtC because...well, I just don't. :P
But, I do like building outrageously ridiculous and gross characters, and then imagine having it go against my players. MWAHAHAHAHA!


I’d say go for underworld. I like the sound of that topic. Although, I suppose you could split that up into different YBtOP’s, and have each one be its own thing.

You can  I couldn't axe any build because it wasnt in a official contest thread.

The Underworls is a very broad topic, but it basically is any crime-related build you want, from any era you chose. You could have a Boba Fett build build competing against a Hutt crime lord against a lethal assasin, against a Han Solo build, for example

what book are the species stats for Hutts in?

If the first contest is underworld, I of course wouldn't submit the Jedi build

Now if you want sick you build a Hutt and a "Jedi" all in the same character.


Now is there anything special about adding some line to your signature or are there even any restrictions on what someone can put in a sig?
