Well, you have to put warp nacelles on the wing tips, first.

Well, as per Xen's recent newsletter...it seems there will be no 2015 contest unless someone else runs it. \

I hope that does happen. I'm in the mood for a good contest.

I suggest we can run our own contest. We don't need prizes, just bragging rights.

Set up a poll with a few topics for the contest, the most votes win. Then set a deadline. Once the deadline is up we poll the results and voters pick the winner(s).

Bang! Fun had by all.

I completely agree, we don't need prizes. Just a contest for fun and bragging rights.

I say a 2-3 month entry time.

I like these contest topics for the poll
1. Damaged Vehicles (previous suggestion)
2. Auxillary & Support Craft (previous suggestion)
3. Theme Build (silverloc's suggestion)
4. Freighters & Cargo Ships (my suggestion)
5. Non-Federation: Includes all Alien + Civillian craft (my suggestion)

We should nominate 1-2 members to be judges and tally up the user votes, decide draws, etc.

I second that motion.

We should start a new thread with the poll, ask for a volunteer to be the contest arbitrator for the final voting if there's a draw. Maybe Scotchyn?

I don't mind being the contest "manager" that posts all the final entries for public vote. But I still want to compete as well. Which shouldn't be a conflict of interest since the winner is determined by public vote, not private.

Thoughts everyone?

You do realize, my suggestion is just the generic term for the other 5 suggestions right? :D

Surely not. I just figured you were being vague and would expound upon your theme idea when the contest became more of a reality and less of a conversation.

Did you have a specific theme in mind?
