It's ok, that group has been scheduled to die anyways.

A few things that need to be stated right from the start.

1) If people start new topics without asking, it will upset the group and result in a billion topics all about the same thing (example: four Halo Rocks! topics).

2) Spelling and Grammar: Nobody's perfect, but PLEASE try to be right. It's annoying when you have to "de-code" a message just to figure out what the person is saying/asking.

3) "Famous" members shouldn't be the only admins. Admins and mods should be normal members, just like the rest of us. That way they don't think they're better than us (one of the things that I saw in the TFOL Private Club).

Just clearing these up before too many people join, trying to prevent problems before they start.

Halo does rock. There will be a rule stating that topics must go somewhere, instead of just a balatant statement that could be put in General Conversation.

That was going to be another rule. Bad grammar posts will be deleted.

Isnt a self moc something like a sig fig or something? I don't know, don't take my word for it.

I think there should also be a rule for demoting admins who start ruining stuff...I've seen such power abuse before.

This group has got a lot to live up to. Wonder how long it will be before we have 105 members and 13517 conversation topics. Also we should work on a contest like the contest ideas topic in the TFOLPC. Then a Poll for the ideas that got past the admins and mods and then of course the rules for said contest.

Also we REALLY need a picture for our group even if it's only a quick temporary one that looks real clean like the TFOLPC's. But then we should have a contest for a sculpture of like the TFOLC's logo or something that depicts the TFOLC really well. Because lets face it, non-lego icons for groups just aren't all that cool.

Even though the incedent in the tfolpc was a hoax, I will not shut down this group. TFOLPC has gotten a little too strict lately, and this last stunt was it for me.

Make sure you nominate your picks for Admins/Mods so we can vote on it.

I'll set up some more topics in the meantime.

I'd also like to annouce two contests in another thread.

I handed over those responsibilities to the elected members.

Quoting AA (Noname)
We are having a poll to check what most members think about our policies and rules. From now on, I'll stop talking about TFOLPC here, I guess it's really annoying.
Again, good luck with TFOL Central!

That's also arrogant. I hate it when people don't 'do the research'. Most of the TFOLPC administration was ELECTED. No one knew me before Flare invited me.


Arrogant? No, true. I would call Flare a "famous" builder, wouldn't you? And people know you now, and it seems like once a builder becomes "famous", or even widely known/respected, they tend to lose their sense of equality with the rest of the members. That's why I think admins should be cycled, so they become a part of the general members again.

That's my two cents. And the last word I will say on the subject.

Based on what I know, Eric based this group off of the assumption that the TFOL Private Group was going to delete itself and that Eric had enough of their quote "strict" ways. However, TFOLPC did not delete itself; it was only an April Fools joke, but Eric is still keeping this group for new members and for a more democratic rule.

There is a lot of false statements there.

1st) It's Eric, not Erin.
2nd) I wasn't paranoid. Paranoid is freaking out so much you shoot all your ammo at a shadow.
3rd) Not lazy, fed up. I want a democratic group where the leaders aren't there permanently.
