Voting will take place in the LEGO Pirates Forum between now and 11:59PM/23:59 UTC±0, July 31st 2011.  

You must also have a Eurobricks account registered prior to 11:59AM/11:59 UTC±0, July 15th 2011 or your vote will be invalid.  

How to Vote

Each voter will be granted 5 points per division and may allocate them to the entry/entries he or she deems worthy of winning.  More than one point can be awarded to the same entry, providing the combined total of points does not exceed 5 per division.

This means you may allocate 5 points to the Forum Division entries and another 5 points to the Mailing List Division entries.

Contest entrants may also allocate 1 point to their own entry in each division!

A judging thread will be created for each division to enable voters to allocate points and leave comments.

All questions are to be asked in this thread!

The Rules

You must cast your vote in the correct thread. Votes will not be accepted in this thread or anywhere else.

Your vote must be made after the commencement date and prior to the conclusion date.

If you allocate more points than you are entitled to, all your points will be invalidated.

Before allocating bonus points you must first verify your participation in each initiative otherwise your bonus points will be deemed invalid.

You, your friends, family or co-workers must not register additional Eurobricks accounts to vote.

We reserve the right to delete comments we deem inappropriate and remove votes if we decide the voter is abusing the rules.

Has an email been sent to the mailing list? I want to make sure I haven't missed it.

Here are the MOCs that my husband and I built: Flickr and BrickShelf

My Husband's first novel, The Cleric, is published and available on
Amazon (both print & Kindle ebook)! It's a humoristic tale of moderate adventure with a dash of romance.

Great! I was afraid the sever had eaten the email. :pir_laugh2:

By the way, your link to the bonus points page actually goes to the front page of the forums.

Wouldn't it be better to put a photo of each MOC in voting thread???  :pir-sceptic:
I think that will make the chances more equal - some MOCs were "Blogged" and presented at the homepage, and some other has been seen by a few users only.

HERE'S the right thread.  :pir-cry_sad:

So, asking for the only-mailing-list people who might be wondering, do the mailing-list-but-no-account people have claimable bonus points for being on the mailing list, even though they don't have an account? Thanks for answering, sorry about the wrong thread thing  :pir_bawling:

I think it would be, but I'm not going to be the one spending the time doing it!

I'm not sure what you're asking so I'll take a stab: If somebody doesn't have a Eurobricks account registered prior to July 15 they cannot vote, so therefore cannot claim the Bonus Point.

PS has there been a rule change, allocating three points too own entry is not possible anylonger ?
Yes, the process to claim all 3 points was deemed too confusing for some people so now you can only allocate 1 Standard Point and 1 Bonus Point to your own entry.

Just curious, does spending the bonus point for your own entry still require claiming of all three bonus points?

No, that rule was abolished for simplicity sake.

The only requirement to allocate one Bonus Point to your own entry is verifying one Bonus Point.

Voting has closed!
Points will be tallied and the winners will be announced next weekend.
