Well I think some people are keen to start now/soon.

I assume we can let people start whenever between 1 Dec and 28 Feb as long as we verify their start date.

3 months is a long time, so with some January starter's they'd have almost 2 months to complete.

This might not be worded right so feel free to pull apart and change/add anything.
I am not sure on voting side of it.

Roadrunna ref my question earlier regarding taking part.
I really want to take part but I am worried that as I am helping to run it other people might think it wrong. I know you will be able to see all the models but will Martin and myself? If so that is the part that concerns me.

Are you taking part Martin?

Na I wont be taking part.

As I said on PM, probably a weeks voting poll beginning of march would be good. Let the people judge.

Oh yeh as I said yesterday, the rules are spot on
