What about 3d printers? Are we doing traditional 10 cents per gram of filament? Or is there a set cost?
3d printers are fine to use. I suppose an estimate of the cost of plastic would make sense, though I doubt that will amount to much unless it's huge. :)

Where to post the project ?and how ?
"You’ll have until August 31st, 11:59:59PM CST to finish your project, and post a project log thread in the competition section (you'll need to include a parts list with cost and source for each part, too). I’ll open up that section a week before, on August 24th, to give people time to make their threads"
The thinking behind waiting until the last week or so for allowing people to post their projects was to eliminate the possibility of people stealing/copying project ides. Thinking about it now though, it would be pretty fun to see people's progress along the way, so maybe I could open it up for people to post project threads from the beginning. What do you guys think?

Maybe we should post our idea on a thread first, and then we can make our project threads during the one week. Then we’ll know who thought of the idea first.

Well, you've made me realize that if people get their project threads out there sooner rather than later then that would also serve as a sort of ledger for any claims of copying... I may just go ahead and open it up for people to put build logs up.

I doubt this will be an issue anyway -- this is such a great community and the only issues with things like this that we've had have been with custom parts people have been trying to rip off and sell. Obviously that wouldn't be the case here. The prizes aren't that big and really it's not about the prizes, anyway. :)

2 ESP32s ordered. This should help nicely with my "you have to have four projects started until you can finish one" requirement so I can get something else finished. ;)

I have no idea how to use an ESP32 or what I'm going to make, but I'd better get started if I want something done by the end of August. :)

I would have a go, but several projects on the go + life means that I just won't get the chance. Good luck everyone who does!

Alright, I went ahead and created a "Project Logs" section where you can make a thread for your project to let people see, if you want. I'll create a "Completed Projects" section a week before the deadline for people to post their finished projects in; that way it will be easy to see finished projects for voting purposes.
