Does a major overhaul/refurbishing count as DIY for this contest? Also, does it count as DIY if I designed things (specifically the lid) but didn't personally do the welding to put it together?

hmmm i would say yes if you could provide a method ofr design and a way to obtain a person to help you .... my only issue is really is it DIY if you dint do it???
over haul??? please be more specific... for example i had a major tank crash in my 29 gallon that resulted in an upgrade to a 50 gallon how ever the only "DIY" projects involved were the stand and the over flow not the transfer and all the work in aqua scaping..

Well I think I'm bowing out of this one I'm running out of time and really dont have the money right now, plus my new idea is going to take at least a month of research before I'm willing to give it a try.

Depending on the turn out you get for this one, might I suggest planning a contest like this quarterly like every 3 months or so.

In my non-official opinion it would, as long as you are building/modifying something to be useful (or useful once again). With the lid I would say yes to because designing it is apart of making it plus there might be other people here with welding skills that would like to see what you had constructed and how! Of course these are just my opinions, bear is the master and commander!

after putting forth the suggestion of having the contest run a bit longer the Team has decided that it is in fact a great idea!!! that said we will extend the dead line for this one until October 30th and start votes on November 1st....
a big thank you to zof for the recommendation and please folks continue to put those ideas forward....
