8th Old Lumens Challenge is CLOSED !!!

So, I’ve been working on my project all the afternoon/night, and it is almost done. It is a fully functional “flashlight”, that uses a pill.

Given what was said above, in particular gchart (about djozz) and G0OSE, could my “build” be considered as a modified light then?

If so, I documented all the process and can put it one thread in the “Modified Light Category”!
If not, no problem at all, the fault was mine for misreading!

I will be looking to hear from the organization, please :slight_smile:

At CNCman, I guess my build could be a “frankenlight” indeed :smiley:

Thanks again for all the words here :+1:

Great to see you competing MascaratumB :smiley:
You guys contribute so much here at BLF :slight_smile: , keep carrying that Old Lumens Torch :+1:

Hello, sorry for the delayed response. I’ve slept on it and sobered up ….err… I mean thought about it some more :innocent:

I’ve had a couple of questions along similar lines ” can i just use this one part / do this one thing without jumping categories? It’ll make it sooo much easier for the rest of the build ” The rules seem pretty clear cut to me so I’ll continue to take the hard line to make it fair to all the persons who have previous asked (and might’ve altered their build to suit).

@MascaratumB I can still add your build to the mod category if you wish but it looks like you’ve removed the build specs in your thread. Alternatively if you come up with another idea before the end of the comp you are still welcome join.

What i will do is open a discussion thread regarding the rules for next year. I was going to do it after this years comp was finished but I guess we should open discussion while it’s a hot topic. I will not change this year’s rules so the contest is consistent and fair.

Rules discussion thread

Thank you for your words and explanation! :slight_smile:

Well, as my thread isn’t locked, I will probably use it to make the thread under the Modified Light Category! I saved the information I had there, and now I can add it again with the due changes

During the day I was working on the build and finished it so the thread will be “complete”… Sorry, no excitement to see what’s next :person_facepalming:

I will do it when I wake up and I will refer it here on this thread to make it official :+1:

Once again, thank you !!!

I am back to the contest, under the Modified Light Category! :innocent:

This is the build thread :

Sorry for all the nuisance before :zipper_mouth_face:

My project is finished! [06 - 12 –2020]

Name: WooDJewl :smiley:

I think we need a prize for the cutest teenyweeny 13mm pill lol! :stuck_out_tongue: :person_facepalming: Bless it’s little cotton socks!

Aww, it’s just a wee little pill.

That seems a dancing pill :wink:
Sweet, I like it! Nice job :wink:

Less than a month to go everyone! If you missed it we had another entry by EasyB :arrow_right: It’s coming into the silly season so everyone stay safe :beer:

Quick question- was wondering if I can participate in the contest with a lit up sign, as in would that qualify for the handmade category? There are huge protests going on in my country and in the effort of “shedding the light” on our corrupt government I wanted to create a sign with lighting.

Most of the time………

^ Yea, the political sign itself is going to be against the forum rules.

I’d be really curious to hear from sb if there’s a good way for this to work. Blurring the text or something? Not photographing the message portion of the sign? I don’t know. I’m pretty curious about the tech itself…

It is planned to be in Hebrew so 99.9% of BLF members will not understand it

Hmm... I don't think we've had a question like this before. Everyone just accepted the purpose of the device is to illuminate the environment not to illuminate the device. Having said that, the rules do not specifically exclude such devices. A bit of a grey area but i think it'd be interesting to see such a build. With regard to the politically motivated message on the device i have sought a comment from sb to help clarify BLF's position. Until I hear back from admin i will play it safe and say the entry does not qualify at this time. If anything changes i will let you know asap FearOfTheDark

BTW welcome to the forum

I am not going to join the contest (yet), just wishing everyone a good luck and happy flashlight building. Really excited to see the results!

Okay i had a chat with admin. His advice to me was to exercise caution.

So with that in mind, I think it best to not allow this project. Point 3 of the BLF rules - please avoid divisive subjects such as religion and politics. Sorry FearOfTheDark. If you have another idea that’s non- political you’re still welcome to join :slight_smile:
