Studio Audience (general OOC)

It's back! Year 12 of this competition is here! Let's get some chatting happening as this year's Iron DM competition warms up! And don't forget to get those round zero entries in, somebody has to go get that crown I'm leaving vacant for you all

Inem's not participating this year?

This couldn't have come at a worse time, work-wise. But by god I'm going to give it a shot!

Inem's ghost has summoned me back into this accursed arena!

Hopefuly this will be my year, or at the very least the year my nonsense forces the judges to come up with a new rule for the next time around, like in a certain other competition...

Unko, I am really hoping to face you this time, so give it your all!

Worst timing award goes too */ drum roll /* the 2019 Iron DM contest !
My Robotics competition season lines up perfectly with this - so the award actually goes to me

I have to say though that I've always wanted to mix it up with you guys on this one. HUGE respect to those carrying the Iron DM badge.

If I remember correctly, there is a 5-7 day turnaround on this, correct?

Going to dig deep and see if I can do it this year but I'm with Qiksilv by saying, good luck to everyone that takes this on!!

Glad to see some interest starting up.

I know timing is always the issue, but we've got to navigate around other site competitions

I'll refer you to the rules thread for the details (specifically point 6), but in principle you are correct that that is the length of a round. Followed typically by roughly the same time for the judges to get in their scores during which time you have a break before the next round begins.

I've gotta wonder-- with three IronDM medals, can you trade them in for a MithrilDM badge? Also, now that I think of it, why isn't this called ColdIronDM?

Only made one post last year due to school and was always bummed that I didn't finish! Fingers crossed I can get through it this time!
Congratulations Inem on taking up the mantle! It seems only fitting

I have been waiting for this. Last year I just caught the middle of it all when I came back to the site, and I only paid a little attention to it. But it sounded interesting. Unfortunately, I had more work shoved onto me at work, and though it is only a minor workload addition, it is much annoying as it cuts down on my time I can enjoy this site.

I'll probably still give it a try, but I feel I won't be able to give it my all

Hmm. This is an interesting idea. Might throw my hat into the ring.

Or at least I would if I wore hats.

...My gloves. Let's use those instead.

If I recall, you have a flat-cap that you could use in this scenario... Or maybe your cigarette will do. I think you'd have to consult the judges?
