Yeah sadly very few of the original members are actually still building regular or at all.

It looks like a copy and paste of the member list, except the bold words.

Yep copy and paste and edit out info. Then add in what I can remember about how active at building people are.

Cln-cmndo, Comrade Faie, & Brandon9: are the only 3 members that I can think of out of the first 50 users that didn't: quit, go inactive, or become staff/VIPs.

Edit: Faie have you only made one MOC this year! Shocked

You have to be tied for about the most active non-builders! Hola Wow! Sad

You make it seem like this site is dying. Quite on the contrary. There are several people on that list that do still build, and we have 100+ active members weekly or even daily! So, unless you don't realize it, people grow out of LEGO, and others rediscover it. Many TFOL's lose interest, and it's those amazing AFOL's that keep this community going. The LEGO online community is relatively young, at 6-7 years old. I think we ought to get over the losses of the past, and move on. Wink

I am sure he wasn't pointing it out as losses, it was more of stating a fact of the original members. Rook is the first one to tell you that people grow out of lego or get to busy in life to continue building.

Yeah the point was more about the fact that Faie has been here forever and yet some how has slipped by the eyes of the staff (mainly me and CC for the first two years and LRV, DP, and me for the last year) for a leadership role. Then when you look at it closely you see that Faie is very active in discussions but not so active with the bricks. Thus the reason why he's been over looked for a leadership role for the past 3 years. 1 MOC in 12 months isn't going to cut it if you want to be a leader in this part of the community. Builders Guild, not Chatters Guild. Razz Wow this thing looks

Post by Wickedskillz on Thu Dec 09, 2010 10:34 am

I haven't been at CABG for long, but I would really like to get involved in stuff once I have got used to the environment. I notice that quite a few people(here and there) don't actually build many things with Lego, but enjoy talking about it. Some other people don't think that their creations are worthy of being online, but otherwise, I wouldn't understand why they wouldn't post/create creations. I will be applying to enter the guild soon, just to let you all know. And, how high are the expectations to get in? I would like to know what I am up against and whether it is worth trying yet...

Best person to talk to is Gerrard. I think he tried out about 6 times until he finally made it in and think he's glad he took the time. The main things most of us grow up building for ourselves and if something wasn't quite right we just let our imaginations fill in the blanks. The point of Builders Guild is going from building for your self to being able to build something that everyone enjoys looking at. The main part of that is exploring new building techniques. Basically you need to be able to build almost well as TLG. You MOCs should look like a set or better. TLG keeps their sets pretty simple because of prices. Thus the huge AFOL community, that takes Lego to that next step. This form is a training ground. If you push yourself to learn new material, build, and compete regularly your skills will improve. Better skills means you're more likely to win contests on this forum and others and therefore prizes. And who doesn't like free Lego! Wow this thing looks

Thanks for the hint. So I have to match/surpass the skill level of actual Lego sets... This might be hard, but I am going to try my hardest with this one.
