i Brick Chat #16: 1 Year Anniversary
 Group admin 
It's been a year, if you can believe it! i Brick was founded on November 30th, 2012 by Isaac Cremer. The group grew fast, including a record-breaking month that introduced 201 new members to the group. The branches of i Brick were created soon after, however they have since become inactive, but are still a great place to share creations!
The chats especially were active nearly all day, and the group continued growing quickly, soon to become one of MOCpages most prominent groups. Tom (TX-008), Timothy Wallace, and Isaac helped push the group upwards rapidly. Unfortunately, because being pressed for time like the rest of us, they have not been very active, though they occasionally drop by to say hello!
On May 11th, 2013, the infamous i Block and marquee incidents occurred. It caused a lot of strife, but we can all have a laugh now can't we?
After the results of i Brick surveys, the blog was created. We are quite proud of it, so do have a look every so often!
The faithful staff as of now are Michael K, David FNJ, and Halhi 141.
As of now, we are the 6th most discussed group on MOCpages, the 11th most members, and 17th in most creations. We look forward to another great year on one of MOCpages' greatest groups!


Long live i Brick! Continue chatting :D

This group has been my home for 11 out of 12 months. Now I feel so proud of its prominence and current status. The i Block incident can be forgotten about, and now let's see how far we go again.

We will run into another accident down the road, but this group is forever. LONG LIVE I BRICK!

What a great year! I joined recently on iBrick, but ive been on mocpages 2 years... Like I said in discussion #15, I think we should make a mural or something to commemorate iBrick.

What do you mean? Only thing I can think of is a mosaic of all the members' avatars.

Besides that, because I utterly fail at castle MOCs, and can't start building my next planned MOCs until tomorrow, due to pre-scrapping requirements.

When I look at who's liked it...it technically says 6, but it doesn't matter that much. It's just sorta strange...on the bright side, I made it to round 3 of the contest:D

Congrats! So did I! I'm really worried about a certain hen though, my lack of motivation to build for this category might give him the win...

Hey, David, quick question: If I were to create BIONICLE-sized versions of LOM characters, would I be allowed to add them to the LOM group? (I have no real plan to actually play as a character, unless he/she is large-scale as well...)

You could probably make your character large scale. I was thinking about doing that but decided against, I will be including large creatures (Bionicle scale) fairly often though.

Once I am 13, I probably won't watch most movies that are PG-13, only epic films like the Hobbit:P Eventually, when I am 17...I will probably never watch an R-rated movie. I find most/some to be overly gory.
ON the bright side, in 2 years when the new StarWars comes out and is undoubtedly going to be PG-13...I will be able to see it=)

Calm yourself. The intro isn't being judged. Why else would I require the "goofy" uniforms? I doesn't matter to me much what apparel you wear in the other rounds, but this intro is the one that will define what our guild truly is.

Calm yourself. The intro isn't being judged. Why else would I require the "goofy" uniforms? I doesn't matter to me much what apparel you wear in the other rounds, but this intro is the one that will define what our guild truly is. In the later rounds, however, I would prefer you keep as close to the colors as possible, Red and Yellow.

And that concludes my one and only comment in i Brick.

Nevertheless, I'm glad I don't have to wear enchanted speedos to be in my guild :)

Well unless someone gets attacked during the parade they won't have to use the enchanted speedos to their full potential :P

I just got over a cold - but I still have a slight headache. Better to get sick now than at Christmas right? :D

I also just got over influenza, and am now thinking about ideas for my next CS spaceship. It will have to be something amazing though, my last (and only) one didn't get much recognition :P

Ooh, nice! The great thing about homeschooling is that you can make your own schedule. I'm in grade 9 and part-time, as in I take my options, PE and extre-curricular stuff at a public school and my core subjects (math, science, etc) at home. Pretty awesome set-up!

Well, the problem is this - Nerogue has been around in LOM time for a few months leaving no time for Nerogueian ruins. We are building cities now. The only ruins in Nerogueian territory would be those left by Mythronians or other lost tribes.

Regulations - I'm not sure what you mean by that, but you won't be allowed to reveal your scores given in round 1 and you won't be allowed to comment on creations until the deadline is over for that round. (TT intos are exempt from that of course)

It is like the MocOlympics in that way except that the 3rd round before the final round is a free-for-all round between the top two players in each bracket.
