I've added another damage picture, I can do a video tonight 2300 AEST, 1300 UTC. Just some flame being emitted from the muzzle will suffice right?

Also, can the entrants vote on the cannons barring their own? Fnord will be getting full marks from me if so.

I'll try to through something together in a half hour after school tomorrow. That should make sure a truly ghetto cannon!

Well, people, you have approximately 8 hours to get any entries in. Good luck to all of you.

Will update my entry post. And yes, the video is utterly shite, barring a few phone videos I've never really made a video before.

Camera autofocus. Some of my videos suffer that too. :D

Many still cameras have noisy autofocus.

@Zeus.. Man the feet shot.. I've really screwed up my photos.. no feet.. I'm beginning to feel I have been roundly beaten by the pros. Any chance of a shot with the cap on the chamber and a flame out the barrel?

The video looks like it would not launch a projectile with the chamber open and flaming.

No, the chamber fan died, so there's no way I can get a half good mix. I did do that at 2230, after being out since 0700, so I wasn't the most awake.

The projectile is hot air now. :wink:

I could have turned it off, I didn't realize it was so noisy however. Like I said, first time I've even experimented with the video function on it.

This is the camera

Making the chamber a rattlecan fan would have worked. Use a small ball and shake to stir. I didn't use a chamber fan either.

added. Of course, even if you could get the crappiest of videos of it working as a pneumatic or camera stills...


Don't worry, I think I might actually add this to the showcase(for lulz) once I get hybrid functionality back. Sometime over this week I'll inject thin resin into the chamber, pressurize it and slosh it around to plug the leaks permanently. I would have done so today but I don't have much time left to myself after work.

Alright, contest closed. Judging will begin tomorrow morning (my time), so about 14 hours from now.

INPUT TIME.

Poll or traditional judge by PM?

If we're judging by PM, what do you think of the following point breakdown (1-10 points for each)?

1.) Use of materials.
2.) Creativity.
3.) Overall ghettoness (free opinion category).

For contest entries, I was wondering how to solve the voting for self issue. I'm wondering of each contestant should vote for self to use the vote option then PM a vote for a competitor to Mark. This would ensure each entry received one vote (even) and then entrants could vote for the best other than their own in their opinion.

Can time be given for the last entry to complete a verification with the chamber closed? Zeus should be given a chance for all the effort. Other than a good function photo, it is really ghetto.

I'll try to through something together in a half hour after school tomorrow. That should make sure a truly ghetto cannon!


Deadlines are the pits..

If we go by PM, that's definitely the way to go, if it's a poll, use these criteria to judge anyway.

So can entrants vote, just not on their cannons, or not at all?

Tech, Zeus verified his entry. Of course, I would love it if those who haven't verified their entry would do so. :wink:

Entrants can vote, I'm just thinking not on their own cannons. PM voting would simplify this. If I could get more people to vote on the contest who didn't participate, there wouldn't be a problem with people voting for their own entry.

I've added a muzzle shot in my post. Just to prove it does "something".
