Totally! The only threads we have locked are the ones that are old and don't apply any more, we actually have mostly intelligent discussions, and when we see that a MOD, or Admin is on, we are REALLY happy about it. Wheras on fbtb, you're thinking, oh dread, oh dread... Wink Blue Arc

I know, what's the point of even having a forum if most the threads are locked, or that things get locked because of the MODs sheer whim? Roll Eyes Blue Arc

Its because you have to use an email account thats not a free one, gmail, yahoo, etc. I used my Comcast account. What also works is your student email account, work email, etc.

Building BIG 101

Building Big. I want to build bigger what can do, and I donít have a lot pieces?

Here's a list of things you can do to increase the size of your MOCís.

Shred. Yep that's right recycle extra sets and old MOC's. You can always build them again and probably better the next time. I took 2 Droid Fighters, 3 TIE Fighters, 1 Clone Scout Walker, 3 Droid Tri-Fighter, 1 ARC-170 Fighter, & 2 Vulture Droids sets and recycled them this morning. All doubles in my collection leaving still one of each on display. I had done this before with several other doubles but these were still in my display collection. Ah more pieces to build with and more space to display new Official Star Wars Lego Sets.

Build frames. Use Technic pieces and build a frame the cover the frame with bricks & plates.

Vision. Think about what color it needs to be. Do I have enough pieces in that color? Plan ahead. Buy sets that have the color you need.

Illusion. Build you model out whatever colors and pieces you have and save all the of 1 to 3 colors (see Color Theory 101) for the outside pieces that are showing.

Design. Open and simple shapes like a fish or ball are going to use less pieces then something complex and busy like a centipede or poly-winged ship.

Buy more for less. Shop on EBay for small amounts of bulk bricks at low prices. Go to thrift stores and clear out their Lego inventory. Buy sets on sale. Often, larger suppliers will have clearance sets up to 50% off, but it means waiting and being patient. Finally cruise around and check out yard sales on the weekends. I think on an average Lego bricks cost about $0.10 USD if bought in a offical set. Try to find pieces for less then $0.10 USD. Every ten cents you save is another brick. Wink

Have Fun & Keep Building

I think that is close enough to yard sale. Razz

There's also crime but I didn't think that was ok to add. Razz

On an art topic, is using my blood to create realistic blood-stains weird? I wouldn't hurt myself to do it, just if I had a bloody-nose or something, my mom says it's been used in art a long time.
