EB is not in the USA. If we violate COPPA we could be shut down.


Are you really asking us to RISK BEING SHUT DOWN after all we have been through?? Really??
No, I'm not, and at the risk of repeating myself, and with all due respect, I have asked a simple question, for your answer dictates just how much effort I'm willing to provide.

Would the Mods here like to see MLNO grow as big as EB one day?

Yes or no?

I was thinking about that the other day.


If privacy is the issue, making people prove that they are over 18 somehow would work.

However, we are too small a forum right now. If we ever become a global comunity tho, it could work.

One thing that could work as a prize is upgrading one's account to Pro on Flickr if people are willing to provide it. It would at least provide some attention, and can be granted as a gift without trouble. It's 25 dollars tho.

This is WAY off topic..

But personally, no. I don't speak for all the mods, but I never wanted to be BZP either. This is a warm friendly community.. like a home town rather than a city. I like that. I am not opposed to growth at all.. but I do not want to be Eurobricks when we grow up.

Thank you and no, it's not way off topic, in fact it's right on if you read my first posts last line.

I needed this answer to know where we stand as a community, and trust me, there is always a way to get what yo want even though the law may say no in the first place. I don't mean illegal, I mean creative ways to simply send Lego, I'm not through with this yet, but I will not speak of it until I have a concrete answer for you all.

Raks idea is cool, thanks buddy, you just proved a point.

So, bot, rep points, currency may not be the answer, so why don't we explore another avenue, any ideas?

ps. I heard you R8, wise words, though I wasn't talking about content, simply size and member count, a question you the mods have been debating since my arrival

Legodac's last post:

1. No. If it's against the law... no. It's not happening. Nada.

3. What are you talking about now, uses for Rep Points?

Legodac, the staff has not been debating size or member count, so whoever gave you that information is way off base.


As for rep points, when the staff is done figuring out the mechanics of it, we WILL open an official topic for suggestions and discussion.

As was said previously.

No, it hasn't exactly been on the priority list so far; but it likely will be on a list to get to. It's a case of, "For the moment, it works; but it needs to be reworked". Because it works now, it's not a huge priority, but when time is on our side, then it'll definitely have a second look taken at it.

I have an idea for solving the double posting predicament Legodac brought up: Instead of 'paying for it', the person who made the last post in the topic has to wait a day to make a new one, unless somebody else posts in the topic before 24 hours are up. That way, good topics won't be left hanging.

As far as rep is concerned, I don't really care what happens to it, so long as it isn't abused.

The problem I see with this is tha a mod still has to enforce it.. and send a PM or something.

As far as I can see the deleting the second of two posts by the same author is working fine... the punishment is that because they did not modify the first post, their words do not get seen by the forum.
I am pretty sure that people who care will learn to remember to modify. And as always, if a bump is needed, pm a staff member to make a bump post...

Sure, the moderators will have to enforce it, like any other aspect of the forum. I'm not exactly understanding why this is a problem. Every time a topic has been recently posted in, it appears on the home page, correct? All a moderator will have to do is check out the new post as advertised by the home page, and decide whether or not it adds more to the conversation as it is, or if it has to be modified.

I think the reason why people double post is to, as you said, 'bump' the topic to the home page so it can be seen readily. Does modifying a post bump the topic, as well? No (or at least, I don't think it does). That's the predicament as I see it for why people want to double post. They want their words to be addressed quickly by the forum. Waiting for someone to notice that their post has been modified isn't very expedient.

As long as the double post isn't just "bump", I think it should be allowed to stand, especially if the reason of the double post is explained by the user. I've been on plenty of forums where people can post twice in a row. As long as the two posts side by side are not identical to each other (like if there was a glitch with the reply button), the posts stood. It didn't faze the moderators nor did it create complaints by the users.

The double post rule was here before I was a member... and we now allow them in some areas.
This topic has become kind of twisted around and gone way off where it started.
It should probably be locked.

As for the double posts..we have no "merge" tool with this software, so we have to manually copy the new stuff, open the first post, paste, save, delete. Which is OK if it is someone new, who doesn't know yet.
But not OK when someone makes 7 double posts in one day. Or three or four  in a row in one topic.

We will still merge "innocent" double posts, but for members who know better.. it should be deleted.
