Mocpages isn't an image host, and if you got caught using it as one, it might not end well.

Do you have a Facebook? You can use that if so. That's what I did.

Flickr only lets you have +/- 100 photos, Brickshelf has unlimited capacity.

I might be posting this in the wrong section, so let me know.

Where would we post reviews of sets/custom items? In the theme where the set is?

Beeeeep! Wrong answer!

Flickr allows you to have as many photos in your photostraam as you want.
BUT, if you don't have pro account, only the last 200 will be visible.

Also, you can use pics from MOCpages on forum, but be sure you've posted a MOC with some text, not just
to host images.

Yes. And the title should contain the word review (preferably as its first word), the name of the set and the set number.

Maybe.
People these days have no knowledge of the classics.
Bit of a shame, really.

I wasn't even born when the first game came out '-'

Some classics deserve a remake to gain new gamers... I would totally play this if there was a remake. Perhaps my boyfriend could do one, he plans to develop a mod to try and score a job in the future...

There is the minor problem of villain decay.

SHODAN is apparently considered to be one of the most memorable antagonists in gaming history; a third game in which it/she failed to defeat an irritat-ting in-insect-t and take over the universe would turn it/her into something approximating a joke. Just look at any of Batman's traditional opponents; every single one of 'em is an idiot. SHODAN, on the other hand, is competent, if a bit overconfident.

Okay, with a little bit of help from Flare I've patched a few things up.

A link you've already clicked is now darker, so you don't click it twice by accident.

Quotes are actually legible now.

The FAQ has been added to.

Right now, I'm just fiddling with an idea I had; no worries though, even if I completely frak things up, the feature in question wasn't activated anyway.

Okay, thanks. What if it is a company that makes custom items? (Brickarms, Brickwarriors, etc.)

No, it doesn't belong here. It's a forum for LEGO.

I don't think so. I doubt it'd see much use even if it was.

I have a question: How is the new Moderator/Admin elected, let's say that one of the Admins/Moderators turn 18, so after 3 months, they are given an Honorable Discharge, and so after that, how is the NEW Admin/Moderator elected?

Presumably with an election.

That is how these things are usually done, as I understand it.

Is the Brickshelf uploader faster and beter than the one on Mocpages? I tried to upload a Moc, and I got really mad at the uploader because it wouldn't load! And I don't want to take up space on Flickr.

Yes, and no.

Yes, because it's simpler than the mocpages one, and you don't have to wait for the interface to load.
No, because mocpages changes photo formats when you upload a pic. Brickshelf keeps it how it is, so huge, poorly compressed files remain huge and poorly compressed.

I like it, though. It's why 90% of my mocs still have their pictures.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but can I, or someone else start an MOC Off topic? I'm dying to battle with someone (Evil smirk).
