    I really can't understand people that are complaining about how they not been nominated.
    Why are you modding? Because you love to mod or because some nominations/prizes?

    Every finished project is reward by itself. If you only care about nominations and prizes, perhaps it is time for you to stop modding.

    The end.

    i mod with just a home made scoring knife, a dying 5 year old cigar torch a cheap rotary and barely any money at all.. i think doesnt matter how you execute your plans. the output is what matters.

    someday i'll make it to this elite list. congrats all nominees! happy new years!

    Congrats to all the nominees. :clap:


    Four days in and a measly 59 voters. :eeek:

    Right at this minute there are over 400 members viewing the forums and the same number at about this time yesterday. That's just now. There must be thousands of members who have visited the forums since the comp went up. It seems most people (including many modders) are just not that interested in MOTY. Even if a lot of peeps have checked out the article, very few can be bothered to vote. And this at a time when it hasn't been easier to cast a vote. I still remember the good old days when over three thousand people cast a vote for their favorite mod.

    A little sad really. :(

    Agreed but I have yet to find a link to the voting page from the article...or anywhere else. I found the voting page because I knew where to look. Am I missing something?

    Edit: Fixed!

    It is a little sad. But worryingly most of the members logged in right now have names like dfydtyfgjh and sdrthsdfgkv. Are they are spam accounts? I think they must be as most of them were made today. Looks like the mods are gonna be busy lol

    You have a barn? Lucky sod. I have a square meter of floor in a study. By the way, cast your own alloys? Made your own body panels? Milled your own engine blocks?

    Got to be guilty just loved that detailing and neat work. But in saying that, they are all damn good.

    Damn that's a tough choice. Model 01 just because it's a stupidly well built scratch build, methinks.

    Always nice to be spoilt for choice.

    With so many great builds, it was really hard to narrow my choices down. Great builds, every last one of them. Good luck to all.

    Dare I say it Attila, it's a sign of the times; the b*tching and sniping from an outsiders point of view can be somewhat off putting however justified some of it may be.



    kier in the past bit-tech WAS a community, nowadays it's just groups of individuals and cliques all under the same roof; quite sad really as it used to be the pinnacle of UK modding.

    Al I wanna say about this.... don't let casemodding be a competition. It's just for fun and for most of us a hobby.

    Wish you guys a happy new year with lots of great builds.

    I may have done enough damage in this thread already, but I'd just like to say it doesn't matter how a build is made, be it purely hand tools, dremel, scroll saw or cnc, it's about the imagination, creativity, execution (regardless of how it is done) that makes a build great. Probably something that gets overlooked is dedication, cause god knows i know i can't be arsed going down the shed when it's cold and wet, that's why it's taken me 18 months to do nothing but strip a case. Ha ha!

    And happy new year all. :)

    I know enough about machining to call much of the milled projects lessons in craftsmanship, as much as any other type of work. It's more about realising the vision needed than the machines available. You can have a hefty bank balance, your own workshop and all the expensive toys available, but it doesn't mean a damn thing if you have the creative capacity of a garden gnome.

    I would normally lean towards the hand-tool craft projects, just because the skill on show leaves me feeling completely inadequate but, on this occasion, I voted for The Microprocessor - because he's taken a relatively simple idea and blown my mind with the result.

    And I hate the Intel NUC! So much so, that I ditched my CPC sub in protest over the issue that devoted 25% of the mag to NUC! (that's a rant for another time or place)

    Keep up the debate - as far as I'm concerned, the more modding is talked about the better - shine a bright light on the creative efforts of those few who continue to entertain us with their skills and imagination.
