In the upcoming weeks I'll be running a series of polls to gauge which direction our Grunt Builds will take.

Before we start please note that apart from the odd new release that takes Sonar's fancy, at this point in time the Grunt Build Series is the only GAF sanctioned group build. If you want a build that covers something else than by all means start one but it will be up to you to organise and run it. Please do not discuss it here as your posts may be deleted.

Please keep any comments not relevant to the specific poll in this topic, don't start a new one. All comments will be addressed.

I hope that the upcoming polls will give everyone a chance to contribute to the success of future Grunt Builds.

Each poll will run for two weeks and once cast you cannot change your vote.

I'd be happy to hold one again, if you're looking for hosts. ;)

Next two polls are up.

Hopefully these will establish what path to take and entry categories for all future builds.

As mentioned above please only comment on the poll itself in the poll topics and put anything else here.

Please note that Poll #2 has been altered.

A new choice has been added and the poll settings changed to allow you to remove your previous vote if you wish to change.

Refer to Poll #2 for more details.

Polls are in. GAF has spoken ( well at least 20  ::))

Theme & Timeline was a pretty clear winner but categories and build period weren't so clear cut. Open and Enhanced OOB were supported by the majority with Strictly OOB & Snapped split fairly evenly. No clear winner in the time frame stakes either.

So from the results I propose future builds will have:

1) A theme and timeline. These will be decided by whoever hosts the build.

2) Open and Enhanced OOB categories as a minimum with either Strictly OOB or Snapped as decided by whoever hosts the build.

3) Build duration to be between 2 to 3 months, once again decided on by the build host.

4) The finer details to be as per the last 3 builds.

Future build hosts step forward and be counted  :)

even though there werent clear winners youve still asked the masses (20 people :P) to get a better idea of the guidelines so at least now theres  basic structure of what a GBEX will be, hopefully that leads to less issues and more informed entrants come build time

I've got a theme idea. How about convert a grunt to non-combat use like construction, emergency, firefighting or even entertainment. (ala Lacus Clyne Custom)

How about you have to change the theatre of the suit? So from ocean to space or earth to sea or something
