    I have a couple questions regarding the contest for this month if anyone has a concise answer. I have a few screenshot links to illustrate, so hopefully it won't be too confusing.

    Question and example #1.
    "White/red wool must alternate every other block" This quote from the rules would lead me to believe that the cube should look like this...
    http://photobucket.com/user/Sclean/media/2017-12-20_06.38.10_zpsbha9vopm.png.html
    Is this correct? If this is correct then the next 3 example/questions can be ignored.

    Question and example #2.
    "White/red wool can be alternating on horizontal or vertical" This quote from the rules sort of confuses me. Part of me believes that the example #1 is still correct in that the colors alternate on BOTH the horizontal and vertical while "White/red wool must alternate every other block" both of the rules still hold true, but the horizontal/vertical rule just confuses the situation, leading me to almost believe you want something like this...
    http://photobucket.com/user/Sclean/media/2017-12-20_06.34.20_zpsrzfsgxvx.png.html

    Question and example #3

    If example #2 is closer to the definition the rules are seeking, then is a solid top/bottom or side/side acceptable? Or should the cubes look like this...?
    http://photobucket.com/user/Sclean/media/2017-12-20_06.35.19_zpsthacmt0z.png.html

    And finally... Question #4.

    In the event that you are looking for a solid top/bottom or side/side configuration as mentioned in Question #2... Is it acceptable to incorporate a solid, world generated, layer of red wool as a bottom side of the cube? Or does it NEED to be player placed as to be "in the spirit of the competition"?


    With the time and effort put in by the various teams just in clearing the areas to build cubes, I would hate to see anyone disqualified because of a lack of clarity regarding what the desired final result should be.

    Looking forward to your response, and thanks in advance,
    Sclean

    According to Satsao this is the desired method for cube builds.
