Look forward to it :smiley:

Hah. I can’t write about my 8KX, because I don’t have it. I don’t even have shipping information. Only been waiting since November.

See what topics 8kx forums are choosing :thinking: :thinking:

Oh…maybe the team is reviewing your order?

hmm, have you updated your shipping info following the guide sent via email by the customer service team?

Is the deadline for work submission prior to the end of the 22nd, or by midnight the 21st?

Also, given the small number of responses thus far, it might make sense to extend the work submission period a little.

Hello,

Yes sir, we are trying to extend the work submission period, will update soon.

Sincerely.

Just in case it is not clear already, my topics under the ‘submitted works’ category are intended to be my submissions to this event.

Please inform if this is not correct. Additionally, there are a few more things I plan to add, time permitting, including information about my long project towards using VR to rehearse physical assembly of CAD models (‘using 8KX outside VR gaming’).

Hello,

Yes, if you posted a review under the category, it will be your submission.

If you wish to add any more things, you are able to do so.
Or you can create a new thread too.

Sincerely.

Thank you for confirming so precisely!

So are you allowed to create as many threads as you want for the contest? Or is only one thread allowed? Or is it only 1 thread per topic?

1 Like

Last sent group pm. 1 Submission per contest Category.

Well then @mirage335 is currently exceeding that limit.

Tomorrow, I will move the original threads out and condense things into a single topic. I was in a hurry to ensure at least some of my work was before the deadline, which has since been changed.

That said, if we only see a dozen or so people posting in total, maybe this should be more of a pass/fail, than a competition, in the next round? Whatever awards are involved, I think most of the submissions will be rather high quality and not too many in total…

EDIT: Ok, not today, soon though.
