NJC #100 :: NUKE ::

I thought we should go back to the beginning for our 100th NoJoe Challenge!

To the best of my recollection, the very first NJC #1 was in April, 2006. It started as an informal challenge among peers to create a version of Marvel Comics' NUKE using G.I. Joe parts. Participants in that challenge included JFAK075 (Keenan,) AdrienVeidt, Dark Horse, HypnoHustler, and me (forgive an old man's memory if I've missed someone.) JFAK won that challenge, and went on to become the winningest challenger during the NJC run. Other top winners include pluv and myself with 8 wins each, and Tim121RVC with 7.

There's been quite a few changes from that initial NJC, including a new site and changing the timeframe from a monthly challenge to a bi-monthly challenge, hoping to increase participation. There's been member turnover as well, and many of the names from the early days of the NJC are no longer active board members, and many new faces were added along the way, becoming part of the illustrious Voting Judges Panel.

Participation has waxed and waned over the course of the Challenges, mostly based on chosen topics, but also just due to the external forces acting on our hobby; the introduction of Facebook, the membership of the site, and basically, the aging and life changes we have all experienced over the last (almost) 12 years.

So, the NJC as a regular challenge is going on hiatus. It's presence on the site will be maintained, and I'm sure we'll take it out and brush it off for special occasions, but for now, lets close it out with a bang. A big bang. A NUKE-ular Explosion!

If you need background on NUKE
If you need to refresh yourself on NJC Rules & Guidelines

Entries are due Monday, February 26th at 12:00pm (noon, lunch) Eastern Standard Time.

Please send to projects@joecustoms.com along with your board name and NJC#100 in the subject.

I've been voting but haven't participated in quite a while. If this is the last regularly scheduled NJC I will have to make time to get in on it.

I have loved Keenan's Nuke all these years.

Have any attempts been made to contact all those hosers to invite them back to this shindig?
