Plagiarism is a big turn-off, especially when I was expecting to read an in-depth, genuinely written expo on the construction of a truly epic MOC and find something blatantly ripped off. Frequently the victims are foreign builders unable to defend themselves on an English-speaking board, and infringers almost invariably use awful spelling and grammar.

And to those who find the flood of Halo creations irritating, you might get a laugh out of this MOC:

What's wrong with Star Wars MOCs? And don't go yelling at me. If the MOC is quality work that someone spent time on, it deserves the same respect as any other themed MOC. It's the work that counts. Being original however, gains them more points. And yes, a Star Wars MOC can be original.

I'm a bit tired of people who think they're better than everyone else and NEVER reviewed any MOCs by the people who wrote comments on their creations. This includes many great builders, who are a bit arrogant I think. I'm trying to give a review for each review I receive. But some people may think MOCpage is Brickshelf. I won't give names because most people know theses guys. It's not very important, but sometime it just makes me sad.

Man I didn't know Mocpages turned into a Teachers room because I thought is was for looking at mocs, not there grammer and writing skills.


'Elite ARC Fed', making proper use of grammar, writing skills, and punctuation isn't a bad thing. Work is usually considered more 'professional' when English is properly used. People also tend to take you more seriously. In my opinion, using English correctly improves the quality of the MOC.

Unless you happen to be from a country where English is not the primary language, there is really no excuse to not be coherent. Today's prevalence of spell-checkers and grammar-checkers make it so.

I'm sorry to be insulting, but really gives the impression of either laziness or stupidity. And "leet-speak" or whatever does not make you seem cool at all, if you are for some reason doing it on purpose. The days of it being a pseudo-secret geek/hacker/whatever code are long, long gone.

It is my right to point out lapses in grammar and spelling that go beyond mere typographical errors simply because I am a teacher. However, I must point out that there is always a need to communicate clearly in the commonly accepted (meaning proper) format so that readers aren't spending precious time figuring out exactly what you are trying to say.

In fact, we are all teachers in some way or another. For instance, I try to learn from what other builders are doing. I do not now, nor do I ever intend, to claim ANY building technique or style as my own. I may not know the source, but I'm willing to give a tip of the hat to the builder when I do.

It grows on you. It NEVER leaves you.....well in your teen years it does..... but you will never stop speaking correctly, but your writing will change, so maybe some people should read books more often.
And by my family.....I mean Dutch, not English..... even though i live in Australia, i still have to write and speak Dutch right down to the finest detail.....but since my Opa died my dutch writing has lagged behind, and i don't want to catch up because it reminds me of him.

True, I didn't see any need for the upgrading of the god old MOCpages. Personally I think that one of the only cool features the new version has is the ability for users to officially have groups and 'Alliances'. But I appreciate Sean's good effort.

One thing that really annoys me is when no one reviews my stuff, because I live in a place where my timezone is different from almost every else. Every day I check, but there are NO REVIEWS... Hopefully somebody in this conversation will take pity on me and review some stuff. Lots of my stuff in the the 'military' category have ratings but no reviews. Futhermore I've never gotten a review from someone who's a well-known builder on the site. Luckily I'm moving to America in February so not only do I get more reviews; ...Bricklink!!

There's a difference between a REVIEW of a set, in which a builder expresses his thoughtful opinion on the quality of a stock LEGO set and suggests possible upgrades which other owners of that set may make, and just saying that "this set exists". When reviewing a set, there is an enormous number of viewpoints you can take as to its quality and potential for improvement, and thus six different people reviewing the same set will end up producing a valuable and diverse wealth of opinion. When announcing that a new set is coming out, all you can really say is "look! LEGO's going to be releasing this soon!" You don't need six different people to make that announcement.

I´m brazilian for example, portuguese don´t look nothing even a bit like portuguese, so I studied many years to speak english as I do today. And even like that I make mistakes. Bruno

I am fairly certain that misspelling is an intentional stab at the spelling skills of some of the Star Wars builders out there.

There are certainly some good Star Wars and Halo MOCs out there, you just have to look deep. Most that I have seen come from people that have no desire to be a clone, though. (Anyone else remember when individualism was the cool thing?)

'Sturmtruppen' is a german word that acts as the original for the english word 'stormtrooper'. The meaning is identical, but the germans had it first and thus their spelling is technically correct. And yes, I prefer an uncommon word to the boring standard ones.

I do not mind instruction requests; I think it's a good indication of whether someone likes the moc itself or is merely rating the builder. If they want instructions, they obviously like it so much they want one of their own to play with and hold and look at. Physical Lego® is easier to understand than photographs, anyway. Often the part they want instructs for is simple, though.

Really, a bit more trial-and-error would be the story; they build what they see, and then they fiddle with internal parts until it looks right.

But really, I consider instruction requests to be quite nice: a truly reliable sign that someone likes it.

While I agree there are far too many SW creations on MOCpages for my taste, this is the place for people to share their creations comfortably, and if they want to post SW or Halo, so be it.

My personal pet peeve is fuzzy closeups. Some builders might benefit form finding the macro feature on their digicams. I'm no expert, but I simply can't enjoy a MOC if the photo is terribly out of focus.

There are few things that have turned me off Mocpages recently.

Firstly, and I know it's been said before, is the sheer amount of Star Wars... well... junk. I'm not saying that anything Star Wars is immediately crap, its just the sheer number of bad Clone Wars 'Mocs' that are basically official sets with an extra brick here and there. 'Custom' clones with paint, or God forbid, permanant marker scrawled all over them make me cringe. Also on the same topic is the number of 'Army of the Republic' groups that exist. Why not just have one you all join?

Secondly, is the term 'legos'. I know this isn't just on Mocpages, but it seems to be here more than anywhere else.

The whole 'ths iz orsum chek owt me mocz' review thing going on is just irritating.

And lastly it just seems to be slower and takes ages to upload pics than other sites.

Sorry about that little rant and rave there but it was just asking for it asking 'what annoys you about Mocpages'

I admit that I do not like the flood of Clone Wars, Halo, and Mechs, on MOCpages. But, I look at those as a necessary evil for the time being. If it were not for all those youngsters on MOCpages, it would be hard to get enough advertising to keep this web site up and going. There would be tumble weeds blowing through here, and this hobby would be a good deal less interesting.

However, here soon, we will see these Cloners and Halo fanatics either start to tire and switch over to other things, or just give up the hobby. If these guys can "cut their teeth" on clone wars MOCs, then when they get serious and switch to their own unique building stuff, they will be better builders for having learned what they learned with the Halo and Mechs and Clone Wars junk.

So I try not to look too far down my nose at that stuff. It ain't for me, and I keep to my own little circle of stuff. And, I won't discriminate when someone took the time to comment on my non-star wars stuff, and they only build Clone Wars MOCs; I will still comment and try to help them out. Once, long ago, I too was a youngster just getting started and I thought silly things like Clone Wars and giant robots were awesome. Heck, that stuff ain't too much different from other sci-fi stuff. It's just that there is so much of it on MOCpages...

As for getting comments on good MOCs, just be patient. There are several people who spend their time cruising MOCpages looking for good MOCs to leave helpful and constructive feedback. Most of them are Lego Ambassadors or are Lego employees. Lego watches these sights and will many times see what Lego fans are up to so that Lego can provide better sets in the future. They pay attention to their customers. So don't think that you are not getting noticed.

Hey, some of us newer builders (such as myself) would actually like to not only get noticed for our work but we would also like to have some feedback from our creations, too. Just because some of us are not a Mladen Pejic, Paul Hertzog, Molly Friederich, Daniel Jassim, Dali Zheng, Crismo Giger, Mindrunner, or some other famous LEGO Space or LEGO Star Wars builder does not mean that we deserve to be shafted simply because we are new. If you want to inspire the newer builders to actually build some better creations, then by all means please be kind and drop by their works and give them a comment. Who knows? It might inspire them to become just as great as those other people, if not better, with their creations as well as also spurn them to making more original and revolutionary LEGO MOC designs.

You speak rather insightfully... if you are a new builder, then I am guessing a bit older than the average new builder. And, you are right. The Picasso's of this artist community need to hang out with the Jackson Pollacks to help them learn how to do this art, rather than looking down their nose.

Thanks for noticing me, Mr. Crisp. I am not a new LEGO builder (I am 29 actually), I kind of have just toyed around with LEGO really more or less than become a serious builder for most of my life. In fact, truth be told, I am more of a video game player than a LEGO builder but then again, people have said that I possess a skill with LEGO, so I guess that means that I should be improving my creations with LEGO as time goes by in my life. However, because of a similar set of arguments that was made by people like Mladen Pejic and others on places like LUGNET, it had essentially caused me to enter a second dark age of LEGO (or was it the RPGs that did so to me...I can not be sure) because of their negativity.

People like him had made amazing creations but I often wondered if they had built their LEGO creations with love that came from the heart rather than just mere technical abilities and needlessly adding arrogance, egotism, egoism, and elitism to their way of living? It reminds me of that one episode of Spongebob Squarepants where I believe that it was King Neptune that had challenged Spongebob to a cook off and while this king had been massively making all of these hamburgers, it was Spongebob that was the winner because he had built his Krabby Patty with love and with their complete heart rather than mass producing inedible crud like King Neptune had done and then falsely proclaiming their skill to the masses.

The point is this, though, Alan. I have seen people like him and people that thought the way that he did and they produced the most amazing products that I had ever seen online but looks are not everything in life. Something can be quite beautiful but if a person responds the way that Mr. Pejic had done to me with my multi-colored disasters, then they could very well potentially kill off the next great LEGO MOC builder before they had a chance to grow and such a person that accomplishes such a goal, no matter their agenda or their skill level, in my book, does not deserve the title of a LEGO fanatic on any age level.

Thankfully, people like yourself, mindrunner, Crismo Giger, Daniel Jassim (one of the few decent LEGO Space people on LUGNET to have my back along with Paul Hertzog and also a fellow member on here as well), and a smattering of others on here have been nothing but kind to me when I decided to join MOC Pages.

While you have criticized how I built things, you had done so truly in love and respect for me and you have also helped me out and that you had also went out of your way to help me out on here and for that, I thank you guys for giving me my life back not only with LEGO but also helping me out of some serious offline issues.

Mechs annoy me, especially if they are presented as a viable battlefield option. They are not. Theyre a huge walking target for antitank rockets. Halo/Starwars mechs annoy me the most.

I'm a bit tired of people who think they're better than everyone else and NEVER reviewed any MOCs by the people who wrote comments on their creations. This includes many great builders, who are a bit arrogant I think. I'm trying to give a review for each review I receive. But some people may think MOCpage is Brickshelf. I won't give names because most people know theses guys. It's not very important, but sometime it just makes me sad.

Well put Crimso, I share the same feeling...

And also people with random Clone wars episodes with like 50 "i like it", but the MOC itself is not even close that good.

yes, there are good halo and star wars mocs, and the thing i HATE MOST ON MOCPAGES, IS PEOPLE WHO HATE THINGS LIKE STAR WARS AND HALO FOR NO REASON AT ALL. there are too manystar wars and halo mocs, and the majority arent super-good, but some are very good. but still the people are trying to make good mocs, so leave them alone

You know what I hate? I hate people like you who try to defend other people who make terrible, terrible, terrible creations. They have every right to put their creations on here, and we have every right to criticize them. So next time you say something like this, try and think before you write it, and then use proper grammar to make yourself seem a little bit more educated. You may also want to change your repulsive star wars name to something a little bit more respectable, and then maybe people will listen to what you have to say

I'd have to say I'm annoyed by the MOTD selections. Sometimes it's something really worth seeing, but others it's something that makes me think 'Why did that get MOTD, when I'm struggling to get views?'. Also, seeing builders who don't need the views going around begging for them.

Sorry to double post, but I had to answer this:
Think about it, a mech is actually practical, just not now. It could, in theory, be used in conditions and environments that would prevent a tank from functioning at full efficiency, or even at all, and it provides an elevated view of the battlefield. Sure, it's a bigger target, but so is a tank. When the tank was originally developed, the anti-tank weaponry followed. For every advance in war, another weapon that can counter it will eventually come along. So should we build a mech, it could have any number of anti-projectile devices with it.

Who said tanks were of any use on the modern battlefield? they are obsolete. their capabilities are used infrequently, they attract IEDs, and they are expensive. A mech suffers the same limitations. In modern warfare there is no utility in having a giant walking thing with a sword and/or enough rockets to level a city block. leveling city blocks which may or may not have a mix of civilians/combatants doesn't pass the proportionality test most of the time, and the same job can be done by a robot airplane with JDAMS. There's no need for a big walking thing in modern warfare.

I never said anything about swords or rockets. I'll happily agree a giant sword is about as impractical as expecting a non-biased report from most news channels. And a mech could range anywhere from a hardsuit (I consider it to be in the mech family) to the size of a Gundam, which is what you're probably thinking of. Now, what about those in the smaller end of the spectrum? A mech about the size of a one-stoy building could provide that lovely view of the field, and not attract everything in a twenty mile radius. Now, Mechs may be more towards the impractical side of the argument, but so are a few of the more advanced fighter planes (They cost far too much to maintain). You say a Mech is impractical due to cost and the fact that it draws fire. I admit those are both some major cons, but can't the same be said for an airplane? The point I'm trying to make is, no matter how you look at it, a war machine is going to be incredibly expensive. And even after you've built your machine, maintenance is going to keep draining money. Now, I'd imagine it'd be just as high to create and maintain a smaller scale mech as it would be to build and maintain a C-17, F-22, or B-2 Spirit.

Yes, Ribbits M, expensive manned combat aircraft are quickly growing obsolete. The capabilities offered by the F22: stealth air supremacy. It won't be long until an unmanned drone can offer the same capabilities in a cheaper disposable package, not that we need that capability anyway. The B2's capabilities: fast, stealth delivery of nukes/bombs. we can deliver nukes with submarines or with ICBMs. we can deliver bombs with a wide range of aircraft. It's merely an expensive toy. The manned aircraft that we need are the C-5 and C-17. Those are useful and used often.

Battleships are another good example of military hardware whose niche has disappeared. if a target is not at sea or on the coast, the battleship can't hit it. Its range is limited when compared to the aircraft carrier.

As for that argument up there about building sized mechs for looking around, remote control airplanes are already used for tactical recon.

There is one tactical niche that a mech can fill: transport of troops/equipment through mountains. This would not be one of the human shaped mechs. it would be a 4 legged thing more like a big metal pack mule. Don't count on it to fill a combat role. if a tire gets shot, you change it. if a leg gets shot and broken, its just not functional. But then again, the osprey aircraft and the blackhawk helicopter are already used for rapid transport of men and equipment in mountainous terrain.

True, UAVs are slowly replacing the majority of combat roles, but they still have the limitations of payload. Currently, the MQ-1 predator has a complement of several missiles, which isn't ideal for prolonged field operations. They're fantastic machines, don't get me wrong, but I don't think they're right for major field operations at the moment (By major field operations, I mean if one advanced country should engage another). I believe that a mech could readily fill an infantry support niche quite well. For that, it wouldn't even have to exceed one story in height. In this case, I believe the height and design of a Mech would mostly be for shock value and to attempt to break enemy morale. Now, the mecha prototypes we have now are incredibly slow moving and far too clumsy to be practical, but with some more research they could have possible use in a field operation, or for civilian purposes. I think it'd be best for us to just agree to disagree on this topic, because I'm not going to convince you, and I doubt you'll convince me. It's been a great debate, however. You've brought up some great points!

After I've commented and rated I usually scroll down to see what other people might have to say. I get really irritated when I come across someone who doesn't rate or comment, just says, "hey, look at my awesome whatever!" I just can't stand that, even though it's not happened to me yet. It's incredibly rude and inconsiderate.
