It is legit Lego, but has been MAJORLY spammed. I don't know if it should be reported or not.

Here is the link to the spammer: http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/51124

In fact, all of Nodoudt's (http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/9045) most popular creations are seriously spammed. If you ask me, that's mighty suspicious.

That one is okay. But thanks for checking on it.

As for the spammed pages, unfortunately there isn't anything we can do about it for the time being. I've asked Sean about setting up something, but that's still on the backburner I think.

I've started a list of spammed pages. If you and the rest of MOCpages wouldn't mind keeping us informed of others that you run across, I'd greatly appreciate it. My thought was that the list would at least be a good starting point, and give us an indication of how bad the spamming is.

it may be an attention seeking "moc" but it does still have some bionicle in it, so I'd say, as annoying and unnecessary as it was, it doesn't break the rules.

It probably did, once.

See, way back when (2008-sometimes this sort of thing makes me feel old) you could either use the mocpages uploader, or you could give it a link to a brickshelf or flickr image. Thing is, though, once the early-2009 update came along (which added groups, "favorite builders" and the new system where only 4-5 ratings show up, to spare people's delicate feeelings) support for that got removed, so all those old pages that linked to brickshelf got 'x'd. There WAS a moc there; it's just no longer visible (and the poster is long gone and doesn't care).

all so true, when I see a masterpiece overlooked and low on comments & smileys versus some bionicle MOC for example which someone haphazardly slapped together that has over 100 smileys in the first day it brings a Lego tear to my eye. Its not a popularity contest people, your smiley should represent your praise and support for genuinely outstanding talent and hard work of the builders and creators on this site.

The "quest" for smileys has helped me in one way: In the "quest" I have tried to become a better builder and enhance my skills, which I believe I have done in my time on MOCpages. And you know the really cool thing? It works better than being in a group like that one.

Yes, your quest is for genuine smileys and feedback but some people are just propping up each others MOCs and its not about improving its just about popularity and getting noticed. If you have talent and you produce cool and notewothy MOCs you will eventually get noticed. At least thats how it should work.

To the posts above - this I way I really don't like the smiley system. Out of 5 for me was so much more meaningful - now I can't tell what people rate unless they say so in the comment (which I always try to do).

And to those who always give their mates a 5, no matter what they post;

1. How will you distinguish when they do really exceptional work if you give everythng a 5 / I like it?

2. You and they will stay being average, or below average builders, but thinking that you're actually good. Then when someone comes along with an honest review you shout 'They're being mean!'. No - they're being honest, unlike the comments you've had before.

It's like when someone goes on the Xfactor, after all their family has told them they're great, then they get a dose of reality that no, they're not even close to greatness, but by then it's too late and they won't beleive it.

This explains it rather well:

This is so true!
I really dislike it when you find a so called MOC on the homepage that took little effort or imagination to build but it gets exposure due to the current (ineffective) rating system. I must admit I have fallen into the habit of rating most things i comment on 5* but i will be changing this habit and start being more truthful, any MOC i feel is not worthy of the Homepage will be rated accordingly.

The homepage should be for MOCs that have taken time, skill and thought to create. Not just a silly 'Siggy Figgy' for example, anybody (including my 5 year old Niece could do that).

Ape has already explained it very well (that Wiki link is so true) i think the rating system is wrong at the moment and needs revising.

How will you improve your skill if you are falsely led to believe you don't need to.

On a lighter note;

Happy Christmas Everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely time!

Chris your comments are so true! I have been on the Pages for around six months and i am very surprised how my popularity has risen (It feels like I've been on the Pages for so much longer. I must admit I was guilty of asking for people to look at my creations but soon learnt (from other people doing this to me) that it can have a negative effect. Popularity cannot be forced, you need to earn it. I find popularity is helped if you give encouragement and constructive feedback to other peoples MOCS. I know i will usually spend the time to comment on peoples creations if they say nice things about mine. What goes around comes around :-)

But my point is, as it is allowed, being a Lego clone is frowned upon enough that, in a sense, it's its own punishment for using a clone.

bob, no offence, but how many times do the mods have to remind us that this is not the conversation to report SPAMMING before we stop using it for that?

please search for a dedicated spamming conversation (I think there is definitely at least one still open) and if you don't find one, start one.

This is for "not lego" posts ONLY, other types of enquiries are likely to be ignored.

I've noticed quite a few (I don't have examples but there have been plenty posted here recently) people are using their "mocs" like emails to their friends. If they are planning something, advance advertising for something, or just to share what they got for christmas.

These people are not clueless, they are savvy enough to put HTML code in their mocs, so why can't they appreciate that it would be more appropriate to mention this stuff in a conversation in a group?

Might I suggest that the group rules be amended to include a more specific definition of MOC.

plus some of the people being reported here have done this sort of thing more than once. I see regularly, particularly amongst the bionicle groups, people using mocs to advertise competitions - which is against the rules of MOCpages. why aren't the people doing this getting bans as they clearly haven't read or any interest in taking note of the rules?

If a ban is too strong, then maybe they need to be put back to the same level of moderation they had when they first started. At least if they have to wait for their mocs to appear they might actually start thinking about what they include in them. It is far too easy to press continue and worry about the consequences when or rather IF you get caught.

I've always considered pages with advertisements for Lego related contests to be acceptable, as long as the pages included appropriate content and
proper imagery.

Sometimes it's easy for me to run on auto-pilot, though, so I went through sections of MOCpages to see if there was some written content regarding posting of contests that I had forgotten about. Couldn't find anything saying such pages were against the rules, however.

no lego in it and posted ONLY to provide a link to an outside website.

my understanding was that this constitutes a breach of the terms of use.

Uh-uh, doesn't work like that. IF you have permission, and IF they aren't the sole purpose of the page, you are.

Reposting other people's mocs without permission = naughty.
Including a picture of someone else's version of something at the bottom of the page as a comparison, with their permission, = not naughty.

I would have put money on the wording of the "group" set up screen says you should use groups to advertise competitions, maybe I misunderstood that it was a request not a rule.

Rules are rules. This is why contests should be run in groups, he could announce winners by adding a conversation there - no need for pictures of lego in that scenario.

You may not like that it's here, but it's not against the rules. You can post pictures of Lego collections and Lego themed events (i.e. Legoland trip). They are not per say "creations" but they are completely allowed. And I, personally, like these creations. It gives me something to shoot for. But, that doesn't matter. It is not against the rules so it shouldnt be deleted.

sorry calvin, but that doesn't break the rules. all of the images include lego and I'm fairly sure one or two aren't official sets but customised ones.

I don't expect there is anything you can do to rectify this appart from removing the post and re-posting it, right? Any help/advice much appreciated. And if you could check out the convicted spammers page too, John has said he's done it on more than one of his creations. Thanks in advance Tom
