So we've all said "check out my stuff" before, everyone wants to be noticed, and get comments. I've also been seeing a lot of comments with just "I like it" or "that's awesome!"

I think as Christians, we can exercise some humility and selflessness by pointing people to other great builders to help them learn, and get better. Instead of telling someone "that's awesome" say what part or why. Most importantly try to give advice to make their moc better, you can't give much advice to Mark Kelso, but just about everyone else on mocpages can use some.

I don't know if you guys know this but the majority of mocpages is sorta the bottom of the barrel, when compared with other lego sites. Granted most of you are just kids, and have a bright lego "career" ahead of you, and there should be a place for that, but I want to get better, and I want to help other people in the process.

I hope all that made sense, basically I think we should offer advice in our comments, to help people get better, and do less advertising.

I agree, but I don't believe it has anything to do with Christianity. In the future, please don't associate Lego with religion. It makes my skin crawl.

I don't think that should "make your skin crawl," every minute of our lives relates to Christianity. But this is more of a lego topic than Christianity topic.

I was thinking instead of asking to look at my things, people should ask, what would you do to make this better. It has a different attitude to it. Because if you can take that advice and apply it to your mocs, then you get better, and you get noticed without having to advertise, which I think is all the more wonderful.

This is one of my pet peeves/ideas, what do you all think?

there are plenty of groups to advertise on if you are one of the many new guys here try The Group for Unnoticed Mocers they will help you get started but they should only be temporary or try commenting on other peoples stuff they will usually return them.

yeah I don't like advertising, it doesn't feel right when someone comments on your moc, and all he says is, "look at my stuff."

On the subject of improving your skills, I found the best way is to look at other great builders, and copy what they do. Then you take the techniques you learned, and apply it to your own mocs. I didn't get better till I joined FBTB.net. Only after that did I get into minis, and start getting better as a builder.

How have you improved?
