I looked at the "bratpack contest" and the "armored up" contest and I didn't see a deadline for either. I think you should write the time/day that is the latest you accept entries when you post a contest. I guess maybe you have it somewhere, but it should really be in the announcemt of the contest.


ok I just looked again after I posted this and I see there's 2 links with the same name:

Announcing the Brat Pack Custom Contest -- Posted by Captain Coder on May 1, 2011
Announcing the Brat Pack Custom Contest.


one had the deadline but 1 doesn't, so either nevermind what I said or maybe put it in both? I guess it doesnt matter.

Strange, where are you looking to find the page without deadlines??

Here are the links and they both seem to have deadlines on them??

Character color codes ?

A list of paint brand and color for figures ? like the skintone used for a conan ? the yellow for wolverine ? stuff like that ?
I say this because maybe you get a figure and just want to touch up a paintjob without painting the full figure ?
eg 200x Zodak belt is bogun metal and chainmail highlights (gamesworkshop)
just an idea but I would def find it useful

I'm not sure if I understand. Do you mean collar codes for peoples customs or people trying to color code every new figure that comes out?
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

A bit of both really , like if you have a great mix for say..deadpool ,blood red and chaos black (sorry never made a deadpool) put it on the list , if you know the straight from bottle colors for gambit pink or angels flesh tone ? the purple for skeletors armour ??

think of a colour guide for new and old customisers who wanna try a character they have seen , they can look up the character list and see what colours match best to the original toy and what colours customisers use ? maybe even a most used recipe ?
like........
Deadpool ....custom color blood red /chaos black ...base used moonknight
wolverine..... ice blue and blazing yellow ...base used ml6 brown wolvie ?

you know like a more indepth description people can use ?

I know its a wierd idea but i would def use it . dunno if anyone else would .

I respectfully disagree. I find it far easier to use and. Much nicer looking.

"Blast from the past" feature? This is something I've seen on another site I belong to and think is pretty cool. Basically, an older figure is showcased, each day, at random, on the main page (I'm guessing, because it'd be a random selection process, that this could just be scripted/coded into the web page so that Captain Coder and/or the various moderators wouldn't actually have to maintain it from day-to-day, it'd be an automatic thing.) Anything in the custom showcase after a certain time period, let's say a year, would be eligible.

Might give people a chance to comment on, or just notice, something that they missed out on before they became a member or just because it slipped through the cracks. Or it could just be for nostalgia's sake for older members.

great idea really like that, went through the showcase once and trust me it is a long process, but was not registered at the time.

That's a great idea. I had considered adding something like that for the Checklists, but hadn't really thought about doing it for the Custom Showcase. I'll add that to the future project list.

Seems like there should be some sort of award for that :lol: Last I saw a count, I think there were over 30,000 customs in the Showcase!
