Mocpages.

I just got off the phone with Kelso and Sean and I have some distressing news. Due to work related issues and then compounded with an incident earlier today in another group, Mark is going to have to take a hiatus from the Lego community.

I’ll still be in contact with him by email and phone, but at this point, it’s unknown if he’ll even be able to make it to Brickworld this year. He’s also told Sean and me that for the immediate future, he’s going to be unable to take care of his moderator duties.

What does this mean for you? Simple, it’s a very heavy workload with 3 of us as it is and there’s no way that 2 of us (Sean and myself) would be able to handle everything on our own. Consider this a “job posting” announcement. We need a new moderator to fill in while Mark is away. It could be 2 months, it could be 2 years, we don’t know.

What I’d like you to do is to tell us why you think you’d be a good mocpages moderator. Consider this like a job interview. Put your best foot forward. Sean and I will be going through the comments left here and choosing the best person for the job before the end of the week.

Thank you.

After a rather frustrating morning earlier today with a particular MOCpages individual, I've decided to call it quits with MOCpages.

I know this may come as shock to many of you, but the ongoing stress of work, combined with the rude behavior of this particular individual has been the straw that's broken the camel's back for me.

Chris and Sean have told me that they'll be able to find a replacement soon. Meanwhile, I'd like to say thank you to all that have been so supportive and kind for so long. I'll truly miss being a part of this community, but I simply can't take it any longer.

Best to all, Mark

Mark, I do hope you come back soon. I can not believe I am saying this but...Chris, I can probably fill in for Kelso until his return if you so desire. I have the time to activly moderate and I have the ability to distinguish between what is proper and what is improper for the site, as my daughter is also on these pages and I have a good idea what I wish her to see and not see. I have always tried to be supportive and friendly to the masses on the pages as well. I would like to know more about what the "job" would entail, you could do that here or contact me via e-mail and I can give you my phone number.

I don't expect to be chosen, but I think it would be good to have a responsible TFOL to help lead.

As many call me, "the most active person on mocpages" you can tell I won't have any problems with things along those lines!

As for leadership, I have and am functioning as a leader in real life, so I have learned a lot about leading.

Kudos to whoever earns this glorious title. :)

Is popularity determined by who's on the most? If you're sitting at the homepage, or drooling over a MOC, that doesn't really count as active.
In my opinion, conversing in groups and actually GETTING somewhere counts as activity, but the "other side" of the site considers that as social status, the 'pages are really lost.

I think you have a legitimate concern. Do you have a solution for this problem? If so, perhaps you should sign up to replace Kelso.

Due to work related issues and then compounded with an incident earlier today in another group, Mark is going to have to take a hiatus from the Lego community.

Personally, I think that whoever this 'bad person', (for replacement of scathing words) whoever he or she is, should be ousted for all to know. For leaving a hole in our moccing lives, they should have a hole left in theirs. (Unless that person has already been banned for eternity from here. If that's the case, then forget it. I'm really P.O'd right now, and I can tell I'm typing out of anger. I just need to vent somehow.)

I guess my frustration lies within the fact that there are people who have total disrespect for those of higher authority and age level. In a span of a week (is it? It may be two weeks...) two prominent members of the online Lego building community (Goldman& now Kelso) have quit Mocpages because of knuckleheads. I'm starting to see why TBB has a little thing with Mocpages and its inhabitants.

My compatriots,

After a prolonged conversation with Mr. Phipson, I have been able to verify the verisimilitude of these exceedingly regrettable events. It is with genuine remorse that I am compelled to inform you of this information.

As a community, we have all worked diligently to be supportive of each other, and we should look at this as an opportunity to strengthen our camaraderie, examine the role we wish this population to play in the collective zeitgeist, and move forward with a shared understanding of what civility means.

In times like these, I find it helpful to reflect on the words of the 35th President of the United States, “So let us begin anew - remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof”

Yours in solidarity,

Dave Kaleta

APRIL FOOLS!!!

Sorry gang, but the position of moderator is NOT, in fact, available. And I'm sorry to say you guys are stuck with me for at least a while longer. MMMWWWWAAAA-HA-HA-HA-HA!

I know,I know...Phipson and I are COMPLETE jerks! But we've been wanting to do a colaborative you see, and when Phippy told me what he was up to yesterday (yes...credit goes to Phipson for instigating this fiasco) I couldn't resist joinging in on the trouble-making. Not exactly the kind of colaborative project I was thinking, buuuuut a colaboration nontheless.

And now a few more serious follow-ups...

1) There are a tremdous number of wonderful people here on our beloved virtual homeland, and despite the "bad apples," I hope that all of us can avoid allowing them to ruin our experiences here on MOCpages. I don't know Keith's situation, but I'm not going to let the rif-raf run me out of MY town! Yes, I had a bad experience with a builder yesterday who was rude and disrepectful, but it's certainly not going to keep me from enjoying the rest of my friends and aquaintences...hopefully when you guys encounter similar situations, you won't let it get to you either.

2) A heartfelt thanks to those who spoke so well of me in my "passing from the pages." Of course, now that Phipson talked me into participating in this joke, you'll be cursing me instead! ;-) But, I want you guys to know that, all joking aside, the good words are very sincerely appreciated.

3) And this is the important one...next year, don't believe a word that either of us say! Hahahahahahaha!!!

Oooooo! Cattle prod...I like it!

Unfortunately rude behavior is a difficult thing to control. Different people have differing views on what's acceptable and what's not, so it's difficult to create any specific rules. But here's the thing...

We all know when someone's being a @*&$! We don't need a rule to tell us when they've crossed the line. I think the best thing to do is to stand together as a group and let the do*chebags know that such behavior isn't going to be tolerated by the community as a whole.

Of course, it won't completely eliminate such behavior. The world's full of thoughtless and selfish people, but if we stick together as a community and consistently ask members to show respect, then it will go a long way toward controlling the problem.

So earlier yesterday, Bones, Shifu and I called Phipson out on this whole little charade of yours, Mr. Kelso. We all deleted our comments though and watched the ensuing chaos. It was quite entertaining. Still, I'm glad that we were right, and it had been a joke, because if it hadn't, and you really had left, then....in the words of the baby from "Meet the Fockers", we would have felt like total

"Aash...hoooooles"

Joke?? You mean I don't git to B a super epic mod?? Ah.....Mark, can I clean your zapatos? HAHA, nice joke though and Matthew is right, after I wrote my original comment I thought to myself, if this turns out to be true, I am going to feel like a mule.

Although unlikely, I'll be the first of the... weird people... to volunteer to the challenge.


Now thanks for the laugh guys - cause that really would be funny.

Let us see - somebody who is slightly right of George Bush and insults everybody not of the same religion/belief.

Or somebody who has a the habit of insulting whomever they talk to. Albeit, apologizing afterward for doing so.

Look at your calendar people and bang your heads into the wall - too funny.

HAHAHAHAHA! Valid points. I have a slogan if we ever run for office: Need a MOD? Call Jones and Bones!

As my previous comment is in pending for no apparent reason... I'll just say you had me totally fooled... I should have known this was an April Fools prank, as it just had to happen on the 1st of April... And you're right, I'll never believe a thing either of you are saying on April Fools again... Nannan is also apparently behind bars for smuggling weed, though where he got that sticker is beyond me... at least in all consideration you're still here and that's what matters....

I just don't get it.
I went through about fifteen minutes
of trouble to make a going-away MOC for you, Kelso,
and you come back to just scream "APRIL FOOLS!". Now I'll delete that
MOC and you won't see it again. For that mean joke, I would (Although I'm not your boss, apparently) like you to please, please donate some posts to Theme & Set Discussion. Not the funniest joke, but funny nonetheless. I saw it coming, not really, but your decision of the day to do this really gave us a clue. And I knew you didn't get in a tussle, because if you did get in a tussle, I would've seen it in your groups. Also, if you were leaving, you would probably post it on your homepage just to show visitors you were leaving. ~~William

So to all of you who picked up on the yesterday's date...kudos. To the rest of you...

APRIL FOOLS!!!

Sorry gang, but the position of moderator is NOT, in fact, available. And I'm sorry to say you guys are stuck with me for at least a while longer. MMMWWWWAAAA-HA-HA-HA-HA!

I know,I know...Phipson and I are COMPLETE jerks! But we've been wanting to do a colaborative you see, and when Phippy told me what he was up to yesterday (yes...credit goes to Phipson for instigating this fiasco) I couldn't resist joinging in on the trouble-making. Not exactly the kind of colaborative project I was thinking, buuuuut a colaboration nontheless.

And now a few more serious follow-ups...

1) There are a tremdous number of wonderful people here on our beloved virtual homeland, and despite the "bad apples," I hope that all of us can avoid allowing them to ruin our experiences here on MOCpages. I don't know Keith's situation, but I'm not going to let the rif-raf run me out of MY town! Yes, I had a bad experience with a builder yesterday who was rude and disrepectful, but it's certainly not going to keep me from enjoying the rest of my friends and aquaintences...hopefully when you guys encounter similar situations, you won't let it get to you either.

2) A heartfelt thanks to those who spoke so well of me in my "passing from the pages." Of course, now that Phipson talked me into participating in this joke, you'll be cursing me instead! ;-) But, I want you guys to know that, all joking aside, the good words are very sincerely appreciated.

3) And this is the important one...next year, don't believe a word that either of us say! Hahahahahahaha!!!

Jerks to the BONE!...in a good way.

I must say... the moment I read Phipson's note the first reaction I had was that of rejoicing, and not sorrow. "You mean, MOC pages may be a bit more sane? Really?"

Then it hit me, like a frakkin' load of bricks. April 1st. "Duh!"
Nice joke... you really freaked some folks out.

"Jones and Bones" huh? Now THERE'S a ticket I could get behind! Although I wouldn't want it behind me...

And thanks to everyone who played along (and the few who helped out) with the joke. We had a lot of fun and you guys are all good sports.

But it does raise the question of those few bad apples that just don't take the hint. Of course we're not calling for a lynching of these individuals in any way, but I think that if we all pull together as a group and try to help point out this kind of behaviour in a POSITIVE manner to those doing it, MAYBE we can help to make mocpages a better place for everyone.

Does this mean that everyone should always be rainbows and unicorns all the time? No, of course not. But what we should do is try to foster a creative, positive environment for everyone so that situations like "this one" or the "Goldman incident" don't happen.

Just food for thought.

Oh, and archy... I saved that link dude... FUNNY!

woah woah wait a minute - what the heck kind of a site is this? Is that some kind of...code talk?

For sure though. We can't lose anymore AFOLs' support. Or else before you know it, there won't be any left. Then there will be no where for us care-free adult laygoe-lovers to hide from from those critical bloggers and overly eccentric flickr-ers. flickrettes? flickets! yup, that's what we'll call 'em.

Yes. All our first MOCs were scary. My first is. The reason I asked is, I am going to build a scary MOC soon. You will have chills down your spine. And, scary music to go with it. (It will be in a player. Not the autoplay music like I usally do. Due to some people's computer speed like Architect's.)

Don't mind admitting it gave me a case of the heebie jeebies, but you've got to admire the patience involved in attaching over 7000 levers.

Oh and Chris, Mark and all the others who played along - nice job, far more believable than most of the Lego related Apil fools I saw yesterday, mainly due to the proximity to Keith's departure. I kept my trap shut because I usually go looking for these (The British sports press can't resist them) and don't trust anything I hear until after lunch!
