Hans, could you invite other AFOLS? I'm sure they would join if you invited them! Also, what should the group pic be? Feel free to put one up yourself! Thanks!

I will see what I can do about some more AFOLs after the MocAthalon. As for the group pic, I think the one you have is fine.~H

Hans, what do you think is the best way for an enterprising young man, such as myself, to gain fame and fortune here.

Also, what color do you recommend I principally use in my MOCs, grey or brown?

First, you find a time machine so that you can go back to a time when you were a young man. As for fame and fortune, if you find someone who can answer that, let me know.

When it comes to color, you should go with something that reflects your personality, so I suggest using pink or perhaps turquoise. =P ~H

Hans, if one were to get an internship at LEGO (when I'm older I mean), what would I have to do?...What kind of build skill would I need to have?

I think that quoting the comment may defeat the purpose of deleting it. Just sayin' =P

Hello Tom.

While i am not a particularly famous builder myself, i do see a couple of commonalities among those who are:

1: Originality. If you frequently come up with ideas for builds that no one else has made before, it will typically intrigue people and get more views.

2: New techniques. Coming up with new techniques when building will often impress people. If the technique is useful it will spread among other builders, who will often credit you on their build for coming up with the technique.

3: Skills. When you build something, try to build it to the absolute best of your ability. If you do build things that many others have made an attempt at, make sure your attempt is better, more accurate, more detailed and/or more elaborate than their attempts.

a host of other tips are available in the "how to make a popular moc"-moc featured in the group mocpages help.

When it comes to colors, theres really no telling exactly which color to build in. This depends entirely on the build in question - for instance, for scale model builds, colors as close as possible to the original will work best. Same thing with builds that exibit nature. Colors as close to nature as possible will of course work best. In other instances, a good eye for color combos that complement each other will help. Or using bold or hard to come by colors.

Hope this helps :-)

Oh, i forgot a point in my above comment.

BE HUMBLE!!!

Not that you cant say "Im really pleased with what i have made here" or something similar, but dont openly demand that people credit you with a technique or say "i did this FIRST (neener neener)" or "This IS the best version of this build out there". Let your build speak for itself and let people decide freely to credit you for a technique. If you do this, you will quickly gain respect in the community :-)
