Unless someone else is running it for C60, I'm assuming EB will have one again.

Yep EB rules the galaxy, and its supreme overlord thinks he does too.

I heard bits and pieces of what occurred from my contacts. Needless to say I am not amused. Remember that old phrase about absolute power... yea...

Maybe we should make this site more active and clean house here. I'm not saying we remove members who are part of a particular group. Rather, we remove people who are just a name here, who has not contributed to a conversation or even created a MOC. Since there seems to be some frustration with what is going on at EB (whatever it is since I've been laying low studying for a state exam and trying to promote my business) maybe we can turn this place back to a nice, enjoyable place.

I'll try to help you with the group, Bob. I know I'm not the most active but I can help.

This new cleaned up place, will free speech be allowed or is that beyond the pale?

As long as it is within the rules of MOCPages, set forth by Sean Kenney, I don't see a problem.

Bob, as the say, great minds think alike. I actually started removing "just names" the other day, so glad to see we had the same idea. I'm shooting you an email later tonight.

I don't know what happened over there, but I'm down for getting this place going again.

Same here. I have no clue what is going on/had happened. I've been focusing on other personal matters, that I'm only on EB very briefly.

I don't see how removing lurkers or bumps-on-the-log would actually help. Get some activity going (Bob had plenty of tips/tricks conversations) and things will pick up from there. People who don't post now might find a reason to do so later. Ones that never posted may have joined only to have an idea of what was going on in the fire community. Some may have been afraid or turned off due to past happenings. Build a "nice, enjoyable" place first and the people will follow.

I would be inclined to agree, i don't think we should remove anyone for not doing anything.

However certain members who have been removed have clearly been done so for being troublemakers, and i agree entirely with those moves.

Whats been going on, all of us involved sadly has been less than pleasant and i would like to put it behind the community.

For the people that haven't been around recently, lets see if we can go and find them and get them back, if they have concerns or issues we can see if we can put their mind at ease about them.

I hear what you gents are saying. But some of the people that were on here brought nothing to the table. No creations. No comments. No talk on the discussion topics. Nothing in the entire time they were here. Some may be inactive. Some had pictures removed and never put them back up. Now, its not to say that they can not rejoin. They can. They are welcomed to rejoin. But lets be part of the group and contribute. At least it will tell if they have interest. At the same time, we have to try to police ourselves. We have banned people who have created problems in the past. We have to be sure that these inactive members are not the banned people, using a different MOC name just to troll around. We're just trying to try to keep a happy medium here.

I looked at people who had no pictures and those who had non-lego pictures to see what they were about. If there were no pics, I removed their membership. If they had at least one fire creation, they were left alone. If there were boxes with the red X on all their photos, they were removed. If it was only EMS creations or only PD creations, they were removed, as this is a fire department related group. Obviously, if your FD runs EMS, they were left alone.

We definately can put up tips, tricks and the like. It is always a good thing to do. Now, I think the Mods and Admins need to get together and perhaps andjust and loosen up some of the rules. That may have been part of the reason for the lack of participation here. But in the meantime, feel free to chat it up. If anyone has any issues or problems or suggestions, they can email me or any mod/admin. My email is legotwpfd (at) aol (dot) com.

I dont have time right now to read all the replies on this post but the few I have read im glad to say im not the only one who has lost hope and about walk out on all the lego fire groups.

Too many groups, we just need to choose one. weather it be c60c or EB. The most annoying thing though is that EB seems like it is about nothing but money now and its all run by one person. Where the heck did dakota come from. one day he just pops out and says he opened a site and people should join. the cool thing is everyone can be a part of c60c and that it seems to have been created on the simplicity of lego fire builders wanting to come together.

So everyone, lets just all agree on a group we wanna go with and leave it at that and leave all the others. :) its that easy.
