The most important aspects:

- Preferably Email your registration
- Can print it out and hand it in
- No registration forms avaliable at Armageddon

Chris, I'm moving this to the Announcements and changing the title slightly - I think it's important that it gets seen. :)

Oops! I did post the changes to the 'Geddon forums and meant to post them here.

We were getting, and continue to get, forms with no photos, no information and often no contestant turning up when they were filled in on the day. So if you know anyone who may be interested in attending, feel free to print a form for them (sorry, I have to send them as txt files to Bill or I'd make them all pretty and formatted) and make sure they get images for us!

The contest is getting so big that we can no longer be responsible for making sure every contestant has a form, that is something very few, if any, of you here need to be concerned with as I rarely have trouble with regulars :)

What I will do is leave collecting the forms until later in the day. So if you have a very real reason for not having the form, you still have a chance to get one ready in time.

Rules have been updated again. I'm hoping the web person will link to the new forms asap as we no longer have an opt in or out of the performance and technical categories.

People also seem to be having a great deal of trouble understanding how to fill out "how did you make it" sections so I'm going to do a mock form and see if it can be linked to on the website. I will also post a link from here and on the forums.

Once this is done there will be no more leeway with bad forms! I am going to email those who have sent forms with little information to get a new one in, but this is going to be the last time.

Ehehe~ It's meeeee~


ahem... yes.

I really need to work on my costume... << /spam


Out of curiosity, if I'm cosplaying as as character that doesn't talk would I be marked down for talking in a skit? /silly question

Make a valid reason for it- or if the skit is already taking characters out of their own reality it could work ;) But you don't have to speak to be effective on stage :)

May want to point out that for the contest of Wellygeddon the clocks go back. Smile There's bound to be those (myself included) that forget this change & arrive super early. Early's better than late, but if you've got an uncomfortable costume I'd pay attention to daylight savings. Razz

Just a reminder, now that the forms have been fixed to please try and get them in on time. You still have about 9 days for Christchurch and another week after that for Wellington :)

And to clarify, the rules have pretty much not changed, just been made more refined as time goes on. Make it yourself, make it safe and get in on time. Those are the absolute basics, all the rest is to make it clear what is deemed safe, what is deemed self made and when the time is!

I've always wondered about this phrase. Do you mean mentioning it, or putting in a picture?

Either :) Just make sure that if you show progress photos to mention that is what they are :) We have had people send in mixtures of images of premade items (from ebay usually) which is a bit confusing!

Right, I think tonight I shall stay up and cobble my dummy form up.
