It's been over a year since my last entry, talking about revising the folders for submission. The internal admin talks on that stalled at some point and never got going again. So, I'm going to go ahead and get things started.
The idea is as follows: A slight revision to the rules (for the sake of clarity), and a complete overhaul of the folders system. Instead of everything going into the Featured folders, we'll have things organized as follows.
MOCs Most Lego fans know MOC stands for My Own Creation. This folder would feature custom Lego System and Technic builds, large and small! There will probably need to be an MOCs 2 folder, maybe even MOCs 3.
Bionicle & Hero Factory This folder will be specifically for MOCs made primarily using parts from Bionicle, Hero Factory, Star wars Buildable Figures, and similar themes.
Official Sets & Collections This folder, as the name implies, will be for those who like to show off their sets and collections, along with scenes made from those sets.
Master Builders This is a special folder, which will be home to submissions chosen by the Admins of LegoFanClub as our favorites.
LDD MOCs A folder for works made in Lego Digital Designer. (Other 3D modelling programs not produced by the Lego Company are counted as off-brands)
Minifigures This folder is for submissions featuring only, or primarily one or more minifigures, without an accompanying model.
Artwork This is a folder for traditional and digital art of Lego products. This is a somewhat tricky field: It will not accept things that exist as Lego, depicted in a non-Lego form, such as minifigures as humans. Only things that do or can exist as Lego, depicted as such. The discretion of the Admins will be used as needed here.
Life Sized & Promotional This folder is for things such as Lego costumes, gear, and things like the display models at Lego stores and Legoland.
Reviews and Tips For written works on Lego topics, such as reviews on sets, MOCs, themes, etc, or tips and ideas from Lego Fans and Builders. This folder will not accept poetry or fiction works.
Over the next while, no telling how long, I will be trying to create these new folders and go about sorting the deviations from the existing folders into them. During this process, you can continue submitting to the Featured 3 folder, so that the deviations all stay in order. I'll post another journal when all that's finished.
Seeing as this took me a year just to get around to it, there's no telling how long it'll take to actually do, but I'll try not to let it take too long. And of course if anyone has any suggestions or comments on this change, I'm open to hearing them!
Playing well since 1995,
Dave "Taggerung1" D.
