TFOL stands for Teenage Fan Of Lego, AFOL stands for Adult Fan Of Lego. =)

My advice: a good understanding of the english language/or-any-other-language-you-may-speak, specifically grammar usage. I don't read through MOCs or posts with "spechh liek dis". It shows they don't care, so why should I?

I don't think so, I would if you said it like this: I think my use of the english language is alright, do you agree? Do I type like I don't?

See?

You'd need a youtube account to embed the video. Flickr has that oppurtunity.

In groups you can add your creations to the group (relevant to the group's topic, of course), create discussions like the one we're in right now, and hold contests and stuff like that. You can also become a moderator or an administrator of a group, if you create your own or get promoted by another person, in which case you can invite other people to your group or remove them.

I think it has to do with Bionicle. You make your own Bionicle Figure thingy and that's it. I'm not really sure though cause I don't build with Bionicle.

First off, welcome to MOCpages!

Ok, quick version on this (even though it was stated above but I think the ages might have been missed).

YFOL = Young Fan Of Lego 0-12 years old.
TFOL = Teen Fan Of Lego 13-17 years old.
AFOL = Adult Fan Of Lego 18 years and up.

You said you were a "tween" so I'm guessing you're not quite 13 yet which would make you a YFOL for now.

Also, what Eric was talking about with the language thing. You wrote:
Quoting nathan shaffer
hello my name is Nathan and im new to MOCpages


And what he meant by what he said was that it probably should have been written like this:
"Hello, my name is Nathan and I'm new to MOCpages."

See the subtle changes? There was no insult there so please don't get offended. I think Eric was trying to help you by saying that if you take your time, use proper punctuation and capitalization and grammar, that you'll find you'll gain friends faster and easier around here. They're not asking that everyone be a language scholar by any means, just take your time and do your best.

This goes with MOCs as well. The more time you take on a moc, the better it'll be recieved by the group as a whole.

Hope these little tips helped and good luck to you! Again, welcome to MOCpages!
~Chris.

Take a look at this: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/193188
Then you'll know what all the Lego terms means, they may be confusing if you are new.

Nathan, I'm an English teacher and I'd be proud if my students wrote as well as you do.

That's one thing that doesn't belong here. This group is for help, not self-promotion.

It amazes me sometimes how mind-bogglingly sensitive some people can be. Would've thought people like that would get scared off after five minutes of browsing, but no...

What forums were (was?) he referring to? Who exactly was this sensitive kid? And why is it that Areetsa always seems to just hang around until the end of the discussion? The world may never know.
