What if MOCpages had a news page where everyone could see first-hand what competitions were going on and when? Or a place where MOCpages members who belong to different circles within the site could go to see what other people are doing? How about an area meant to help new groups get started and provide support for existing ones?
About this creation
The MOCpages Hub, an unofficial center for the site founded by representatives of many of MOCpages's most active and popular groups, is meant to do all of this and more. Either keep reading to find out more or go to the Hub to see for yourself.
The Hub's creation area does not contain general creations, but rather news posts relevant to the MOCpages community. After this, the next few posts will cover some of MOCpages's most influential groups, but then the news area will be opened up for reviews, competition announcements, how-to guides, and other articles of interest to the community, either written by the Hub staff or anyone else who wants to take a crack at journalism. The Hub also has a news center thread for less-elaborate updates and an open advertisement thread for anyone to make announcements.
Group Connection Point
The first goal of the Hub was and is to bring MOCpages together, and so it has connections to many of the smaller communities within the site, from the old and massive groups that have been going strong for years to fresh start-ups. Any active group can be added to the list in the group log-in thread so that potential new members can find it, and anyone with a group can use the open advertisement thread to drum up more interest.
The entire point of the Hub is to serve MOCpages as a whole, and that doesn't work very well if only a small part of MOCpages uses it. Every member of MOCpages is invited to join. Even if you don't want Hub chatter clogging your activity feed, you can still bookmark the homepage, join and leave when you need to, and follow the Hub account for regular news updates.
Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing you in the Hub.
