Hello all :)

Thank you all so much for joining this group, it is great to see you all here.
15 members in less than a week is a great start guys. Hopefully this group will swell to numbers large enough to get noticed. At the very least it will be a great go to for finding currently active members. So please all invite as many users as you like. I can see some of you guys have already being doing so which is a fantastic effort.
So just throwing this out there but does anyone have any ideas on how to get the 'powers' that be to take notice and maybe fix the uploader?

There is no help line to speak of anymore.
I have tried leaving a message on a Sean Kenney Moc.

Perhaps we could all do as such?

I have to agree with Seaman SPb. I personally don't think this will result in much, but it's worth a try. At least we can still comment, so this is better than the 'Pages being down all together.

That's the way it's looking right now. I'm personally not happy with Flickr because it's not meant for Lego MOCsharing. It's a place for sharing photos, and I don't feel that there's a sufficient MOCing community on it. I have always liked the ability to comment on creations here on MOCpages.

Another problem there is that you just have space for uploading 1000 pics for free. If you wanna add videos or more pics you need a Flickr Pro account (quite some bucks required). It's a nice place and many other moccers are there but it has it's limitations.

I really hope MOCpages would be fixed, even if itís just the uploader. But as many have said, getting a hold of the higher ups is just near impossible at this point. Having said that, I do believe itís still worth a shot to reach out. You never know what might happen :)

Yeah, they're thinking about a new site, but from what I've seen, it's months, if not years out of completion, and just looks like an obvious knock-off, which might be the intent, but I would rather have the features of MOCpages with a unique design to give a new feel to it and not just bring back all the memories of this site people do not want.

Yeah, it's definitely a while away from completion. However, it is being totally built by the Pages own LukeClarenceVan the Revanchist. From what he's been saying, he's put an awful lot of work into amending issues many had with MOCpages, such as downtimes, server and security issues and uploader problems.

As for being a rip off, I don't think that's entirely fair. The actual design and such have yet to be decided and honestly, the biggest similarity between the two so far is their focus on Lego and nothing else.

However, I can't deny that this all stemmed from users wanting a stable place to go to after the Pages died, with an administrator willing to listen to the users (something Sean hasn't done in years).

I fell that LCV wants to have a website with the 'feel' of the Pages, without the darker memories of the site's past.

From what I've seen so far, there is little to no interest from the site administration to run it properly.
So, what means would it take to,..., take over the site and run it on our own?
Maybe a few of us would like do it. At least, I find the thought quite interesting.
It's also time for some refurbishing in regards of design and functionality.
Maybe a cooperation between Flickr and MOCpages, for better picture quality on the pages and lower prices on Flickr for MOCpages users?
Dunno. Just letting my mind go...

I know right?
I guess there must be no money it, else it would be functioning. Maybe it costs Sean money so he has lost interest? I mean, if the site made money why would you let it die?
I guess the fact that so many other platforms now show Lego builds this has become a dinosaur? A shame, cos this was Lego only. Let's face it, back when the site was big, the AFOL mods got basically trolled into leaving and that was the end of the site. Maybe the design of the site left it open to what killed it? Was never going to last. Maybe the whole groups and competitions thing is better left out. Just make it a site for posting cool Mocs and receiving comments etc.

There were a few pics I needed to resize before the uploader accepted. For regular size photo shot with an iPhone (2688 x 1242), it seems that the simple uploader accepts 4 photos. Yes, itís time consuming especially if you have more than 10 photos for a creation, but hey.. itís better than nothing ha
