Hey guys, this might not be the most valid of reasons to create a thread here, but I wanted to know: What are the specifications o have your MOC featured as MOTD? I know it's somewhat random, but I want to know what the filters are, like if it requires a certain number of likes.

Thanks!

I believe it is completely 100% random. I have seen plenty of Mocs with 0 likes, and a few with no pictures. But alas, in the 800+ days I've been on the pages, I have not achieved it. Blergh.

Haha, I've been on for 987 days, and I have yet to have a MOTD.

If it's 100% random, why is it that the MOTD is almost always a very popular Moc with 60+ likes?

From what I know... basically, if a MOC has reached certain standards, it becomes a candidate for MOTD, which is chosen randomly from within those MOCs. The problem is that we don't know exactly what it is that allows a MOC to be a candidate for MOTD.

For example, I've gotten a slew of MOTDs on MOCs with a decent amount of preexisting likes and comments. However, I've also seen MOCs with ten comments and about that many likes make MOTD, so I don't know if there's a correlation.

Or maybe I'm totally wrong and just not aware of commonly known facts?

Well they aren't going to pick something like this http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/371932 and think about that gas station the other day...

Most of the MOCs with very few likes are old MOCs. I think that the requirement is something relating to being one of the most popular creations for the day/week, rather than having a certain number of likes. Back then, most creations didn't have many likes, so one with just 5-10 likes would be considered as one of the most popular in a certain period and thus have a chance at MOTD.

Recently, the quality has been going down hill. So I'd say it's around 103.9% random.

My understanding is that it is definitely random, however, there are criteria for being included in the selection list, and that criteria was chosen by Sean and not shared. I believe it is something to do with likes, age and views, but what the lower limit is I have no idea.

It is NOT that they are the best as popular does not always mean "good". Nor does it mean ABS or family friendly as LDD mocs and those with parental guidance warnings have been MOC of the day.

I know the question was only raised out of curiosity, but to answer the inevitable follow up - NO there are no rules for HOW you get to be MOC of the day, it IS purely random.
