Yes it is. Except, some were concerned that it could take away from here. Point: there is no reason to move The Best of Awards. Last year I hosted it and was planning on doing it again this year. This is where having too many sites becomes an issue. Just saying.

From what I understand the format by which you did your awards and how we are doing ours are different, however I can understand your negative feelings about it.

I was approached and asked to host the awards on Emergency Bricks by another member, wasn't my own idea and I just went with it and it seems to be working out well thus far. I don't feel it is taking away from MOCpages though as the sites serve two different purposes.

I also sent you an email asking if you'd like to be a part of hosting it with Paulo farseeing the possibility for some conflicts and hoping to keep everyone happy, but I never got any response.

Overall though, I don't think C60C should hold a monopoly over fan sites and feel friendly competition tends to result in better end products :)

Short version: We didn't have any evil plot to take anything from you, this is kind of our own version and if you still want to host your C60C version I think you should, it wouldn't hurt anything and the point is to spread the word about great creations right? Not what website it is on.

It is easy to spend a lot of money there too. If you look up the part you want in the Reference Catalog you can check the price guide to make sure that you have a good idea of what the going price is. This way you don't over pay.

Very good information to have, I see this every once in a while where a seller is charging prices that would make even Lego cringe.

So long as you do not post the incidents or the incident communications here on the group (IE, you keep it on your pages), I am fine with that. Thank you for asking also.

Hey guys,

Is anyone else having trouble uploading to MOC using Internet Explorer? I've been trying to upload something and when I hit "Done" it says Internet Explorer crashed. Never happened to me before, it's kinda weird. I'm going to try Mozilla FireFox now and see if that works.

Has anyone here seen this? Apparrently you can submit designs to LEGO, and with
enough support, they will make them into sets.
I think this is a good oppurtunity to tell them we want Real looking American
rigs.

I sent in a couple designs, and if you can all go there and support them, maybe
we can get what we all want.

Unfortunately, probably not. MOCPages does not allow Administrators to remove photos from the photo stream, or remove topics. Both of which I wish could be done. The only way would be if TK and any one else who post non-fire stuff would remove it themselves.
