Okay, I talked to my "boss" and the Monthly and Random Draw contests are open to anyone regardless of country. So join up! 8) Tell your friends!

The 100 Action Bases and BAKUC are NA only though.

There's something I suppose but still a shame the main BAKUC is limited to NA only...  :(

I'll be joining up soon and adding a few of my works.  :D

Perhaps this is the motivation I need to get me to finish a kit or something.  :embarrased:

This looks like a lot of fun, FF. The site looks great and I hope to be able to participate with you all.

Also need to figure out how to upload pics. Seems to not be working for me right now. Maybe its the Firefox browser I'm on. :(

Hmmm... I'll talk to the programmer and see what's up. I had no trouble in IE so try that first.

Whew! I thought it was going up today (Monday). Otherwise, I would've been online for more than two minutes yesterday.

It was an honor just to be part of something that has such vast potential. And kudos, props, snaps, and whatever-the-hell-else go to FichtenFoo for a beautiful site deisgn and to HobbyWave for some really sharp features (love the magnifying glass on the gallery pics!).

This is going to be all kinds of fun!  :pirate:

Excellent site design!  As a Firefox user I only noticed problems trying to upload an avatar image.  There were a couple of words spelled incorrectly in the edit profile screen.  But then we're not picky people are we?  ;)

Let me know what the issues are and either I or the programmer can fix them. The avatar needs an image larger than 120 pixels. I found that out by making mine 120 square first. Load a bigger image then crop it for now.

Yeah, don't use firefox yet. See the header on the bakuc site. FireFox support isn't as ready as they thought. LOL!

Sorry FF, but I used IE tonight and it took well over an hour to get my images posted.
It gave me all sorts of javascript errors throughout the upload process. 
I managed to "back and refresh" my way through it finally.  It still won't let me update my avatar.  The only one it took was an old pattern file I had that was 512 x 512.  I have the perfect image at 125 x 125, but it won't take it.
I just get a black screen when I click on done.

Who do I need to contact and what specific information do they need?

I was able to register using Firefox but was not able to upload pics using such, you really have to use IE to upload photos as of moment...

I was surprised to see:

"» ADVANCED CLASS BY 1 VOTE(S)"

I remember somewhere the "beginner" class....  :lol:
I'm waiting for the price to go down.....

I PM'd you about that last night I believe. Your pic is broken for some reason so we can't "approve" the entry. (You need at least one active entry toa ppear in the modelers list) You'll need to fix it by going to edit in the header, deleting that one broken pic, then adding the rest usign IE. Sorry about this... they're working on these bugs.

Seems like firefox support is functioning now. I just tested it with my Cloud09 powered GM.

Firefox already functions on the picture upload, however, uploading is slow and it leaves a blank black page and you need to refresh and go back to the upload image page just to view the progress….

Ok, the problem I'm having now is that my avatar wont show in my account. It uploads fine but when i click the done button, nothing happens. When using Firefox (my default), clicking the done button does nothing at all. With IE7, I notice that a little message appears in the bottom left corner reading "error on page".

Any ideas?
