I just checked to be sure there was nothing said about a contest in that thread that I seen as of the time of this post.

Carlman, don't ever again accuse me of doing something I did not do! YOU (Carlman), should know better then to do that.

Maby.

Why do you want to know?


just thought that some sort of acknolegement should have been included if you used his idea..


i did post about him stealing my idea... but it disappeared.... (it could have been my crazy internet though...)


I deleted it because it is/was in the contest thread. You are more then welcome to join/enter the contest because at the time of your post there the discussion thread, (this thread) wasn't posted yet, it was in the making.

Alihisgreat: Yes, he stole your idea. It was wrong, but you're making a big deal out of it. If it was some revolutionary idea or something I know I'd also be mad, but as soon as you post it online without a patent it's fair game for everyone.
That's why I generally keep my ideas to myself for a while until I decide to build them (if I decide to build them... if not I'll share the idea with everyone).

As long as the chamber isn't lined with glue.


There is going to be some mandatory picture rule changing, I will let you all know when I figure it out and post it up.

If anyone has a suggestion or thought about the rules, feel free to share. I want this to be fun for every one to join in on or just admire from a far or what ever. The idea is to have fun! :D
