Wanting Money
Just lately, this guy has been asking people for money, so he can do better MOCs... is this allowed?

If you ask me, that looks way out of line. MOCpages is not a financial support provider, it is a Lego display site. Not really the place to ask for money.

Caleb is a nice guy, I just think he's got ome poor intentions right now. Also, this was brought up in the spamming topic. Caleb's going to be so mad when he sees this.

He isn't asking for money directly. just saying that without small donations, 'bad' things could happen. Personally I say not on in anyway, shape or form. That's all from me anyway, also, if you think its a big problem you should talk to one of the MOCpages admin.

That's the point of Help, to make it to one of the admins without clogging up Sean's e-mail. Caleb is not directly asking for money, but he is basically saying that MOCs will snck without money. MOCs only snck without skill, patience or a love for the hobby. His plan is going to flop anyway, so what everyone is getting mad about is because they see this and don't wan to have people pay for a failing plan.

I liked your first comment better ;) But yes, the first plan was outrageous.

Sorry if my previous comment sounded as if I was angry, I am not, it is just that I see it as inappropriate to be asking for money, for all we know it could be a scam (though the fact that you were only asking for less than a dollar tells me otherwise). Also I think that if your serious about this and the Admins don't mind, would it not be wise to but your details on the page (a possible preach of your own privacy). I just don't see how you can make it work well, stay safe and anger anybody.

No hard feelings. And as for the privacy, I will not be posting anything personal, so it'll be okay. And I don't think people will be as mad with this one, if they are, I shall delete it

Bro, this was nothing personal.I don't want to have bad feelings between you and I, as I like you, but I don't like the idea. It's a little rude, and maybe greedy... I agree with MC's first comment completely... No hard feelings?

He's trying to cash in on his comic.

It's been done before, but IIRC you need a readerbase of at least 100,000 to have much hope of really succeeding.

It's a bit sad, but I don't really see a problem.

There is a first for everything. I think we are done here. Mods, if you would be so kind as to lock this?

This is directed mostly at Tim who opened this conversation, but the rest of you might as well be aware of this too.

The case has already been referred to Sean and notification given in the non-lego thread. Here is Mark's reply

Quoting Mark Kelso

I'm always amazed at the degree of creativity members can manifest in themselves when it comes to bucking the system.

Personally, I'd delete these two, given their actual purpose, but I think I'll pow-wow with Chris and Sean to get their input.

Hang tight for a bit, gang. Thanks.



So please, can we not continue this discussion until Sean has responded.

Nothing is gained by debating opinion on a loophole in the rules.
