MLNO Boards

Q: I don't know where do I put my topic! What to do?
A: Contact a staff member, or post it in the board you think it belongs in and then contact a staff member. If he or she thinks that it is misplaced, it will be moved to the correct board.

MLNO Reputation

Q: How do I gain or lose rep?
A: You get rep by helping out the community in different ways, like contributing, or helping out a member. How to gain rep is supposed to be vague though, but you should get a PM when you get a rep point explaining how.

As for losing rep, a very simple way to do that is by breaking a rule. Major rules will get you on the first time, while minor offenses like excessive spam will allow a warning first.

You wil also lose rep for bugging the staff to get rep.

Q: I found a really cool story about LEGO! Where can I post it?
A: Feel free to PM the story to an administrator, and it just may get posted in the news!
