Be a famous AFOL, get promoted by Chris, Yuri, or especially Kelso, get enough comments on your creations so that you start getting noticed, annoy people until you get blocked, join a bunch of star wars and halo groups (I'm not suggesting these, just saying). A good idea:
Participate in a lot of contests-aside from the manual comments from the judging panel, you usually have other contestants see your entry, and with contests like the MOColympics are viewed because they tend to be so good.
Judge a lot of contests-you give out a lot of comments, people will be likely to see who you are as well as you learning about others.

Not at the moment, but a new option that would allow us to illiminate such threads is being discussed. It's a technical issue that may or may not be worth messing with. For the time being, just try to ignore it.

Many people think there's some big secret to this and really, there's not. All you need to do is build good mocs (that's how you get noticed first) and then be nice to people in comments and in groups. That's really it. It's not gonna make you "uber popular" overnight and it WILL take time, but that's how I did it, that's how Kelso did it... heck, that's how every "popular" person on mocpages did it.

Just remember this simple formula. Build well. Be nice. That's it. Good luck!

I would like to know what you think of some one who customizes. Not poor looking clones, but I mean some cutting and stuff like that. I really need to do that for historical accuracy, like a Dragoon Helmet. I would need to cut off the large end of a Firefighter's helmet, and glue some fuzzy felt onto it. What would you think of that? It's not like I would be doing a lot of it. Only when needed for Historical accurateness.

My philosophy has always been that it's your Lego, do what you will with it. I don't cut or glue my stuff because I may want that piece for something else later. I'm not a purist by any means (I use brickarms and brickforge) but I don't do a lot of stickers (even Lego's ones) or stuff like that.

Really, it's your choice. No matter what anyone else thinks, it's YOUR Lego, not theirs. I say have fun! Good luck!

Just remember that you don't get to take the machinegun home. If you were in Switzerland you'd be able to, (mandatory, in fact) but not in America.

You'd be wise to remember what happens to unpopular lieutenants, too: it starts with "fra" and ends with "ging".

Who says you have to miss college to go into the army? In fact, if you go into college before you sign up for the service, you can go into the military at a higher rank. The army is only for people who are up for the challenge.

The Army pays for many people's colleges, and they provide great benefits for when you leave, so a soldier isn't hopeless when they leave the services. Please check your facts before you say things like that. I'm proud for him and I know he'll make our country proud, because he is now part of less than 1% of our population who loves there country enough to put themselves in harms way. And our country does everything it can to support our troops.

Compare that to a salary of 10 dollars an hour. In the guard, I'm pretty sure the training is a long time...and fighting is even more time. Now compare that to working 2 hours a day, 5 days a week. that's 100 dollars a week, or approximately 400 dollars a month for a lot less work. And that's not an amazing job either.

Hey man, why did you say that on my MOC? I am not a pacifist. There are a lot of things for which I think violence is the only way, and the best way, to achieve them. Yes, I'm an idealist, but a practical one. That adventurers stuff? That's WWII era-not actually WWII. I never said you wouldn't meet "great" guys in boot camp, I just said that there would be hardships. And if you want to get rid of wars, don't make a big, strong army-that just encourages those who are drunk on power to attack. To try to show THEIR muscles as well-same as carrying a gun in public.

Bobafett22, (or whatever your name is, I'm too lazy to go back and memorize it) war exists. And if you want to survive in this world, you need a strong military before your country is blown out of the water. War=/= Good, but sometimes it has to be done.

War exists, and yes, there are times it has to be done. But really-it's almost never on the right thing. The few wars which were truly necessary include WWII and the Cold War, for different reasons. Many wars seem good in some perspectives, but at the same time were unnecessary....

War is fighting, fighting is war. Without war; You most likely wouldn't exist. Nor would the world as it is. LEGO wouldn't exist. You seem to think that war is unnecessary anytime. No, every war has a reason, be it expansion, defensive, property holding, helping another, an assasination etc... All wars have some purpose. You think that without armies their will be no battles? Battles are not necessarily large scale. There are minor skirmishes. Think about this: If there are no armies, no police, no sort of defense system for the public masses and a revolt happens to a very good government because a small group of people are not happy and then they storm the capital and take over, would that be good?

We aren't doing this just to kill. We are doing this to protect OUR country. Remember 9/11? If you're obviously arguing about this, then you don't. We are doing this to protect more innocent people from dying. When we're fighting the terrorist, we're not just protecting our country. We are basically protecting.... well.... everywhere.

War exists, and yes, there are times it has to be done. But really-it's almost never on the right thing. The few wars which were truly necessary include WWII and the Cold War, for different reasons. Many wars seem good in some perspectives, but at the same time were unnecessary....

I dont know if you heard but the Dan Jezek owner and founder of Bricklink(aka CrackLink) recently passed away I'm sure you know as well as I and most of the mocers here that this man has had a profound impact on this hobby. With your permission I'd like to make a thread here to inform the people here of his passing. If you say no thats your call. Honors, Daniel Jezek may you rest in peace.

OMIGOD! Where did you hear this? :'(

Well, Vietnam turned into a big mistake...

It was still necessary and we only lost that because the media was irresponsible

Ah, but you seem to misunderstand what war is. FIGHTING will remain-we will always have that. However, war, the brutal, violent, battles between large numbers of soldiers all under leaders, will not happen-because there are no armies. Yes, they will re-form, but it would help, for the time being.

are you a pacifist?

And if you want to get rid of wars, don't make a big, strong army-that just encourages those who are drunk on power to attack. To try to show THEIR muscles as well-same as carrying a gun in public.

You clearly understand absolutely nothing about war. Go educate yourself before you go and rip on the military.

As long as humans exist they will find a way to diagree with each other. Some of those disagreements will result in violence and wars. Correct me if I am wrong here...

Not only the media but the military was trained for jungle combat, but they couldnt readily handle urban warfare. Also the Vietnamese had a 'home-field-advantage' they knew the land, that means they could hide quickly and effectivly set traps.
