About this creation
Note: Made for humour, not meant to be serious

The third part of the popular ‘Outside the brick’ trilogy.

Today, we join Dr. Wolf and his co-host, Dr. Weston, as they explore the history of a lego forum, Outside the Brick .

We will learn about how the forum came to be created, what happened to the previous one, and we will hear from members and the staff of the forum as they share their ideas and thoughts on the forum. We will learn what it is like to be part of the forum, and what it is like to be the staff and the problems they face.

Anyway, on with the tour!

Good day! Today, we will be looking at the history of Outside the Brick, a new lego forum.

Adam Kaplan , a mod of the up-coming forum, ‘The MOCpages forum’, joins us now as the forum is under construction. We tried to contact the admin, Bob Flux, but he was unavailable. So Adam, what do you hope this forum will provide?

Adam: ‘Well, we hope it will become a successful and popular forum, where people from MOCpages can meet the other builders and learn new building techniques, such as SNOT. It will be a place for members to chat, swap ideas and show their latest models and ask for advice on how to improve it.’


world signing up. Bother moderators of the forum, Adam and Otto, join me now, so any problems?

Adam: ‘Nope. None yet. Everything is going smoothly, and the members are all behaving themselves and sticking to the rules and the ToS.’

Otto: ‘Yeah, I gotta agree, it’s very peaceful. It’s nice to see the memb…’

Joe: “Shut up Alexendre! Go stick your head in a Spanish potty!’
Alexandre: ‘Whaat the.. It’s AlexAndre! Get it right..’
Tim: ‘Joe, what the hell? What was that for? Quit it.’
Scorpier: ‘Yeah Joe, don’t start picking on Alexandre.’
Joe: ‘Shut up you stupid yank!’

Seems to be a bit of bother going on... This could get interesting!

This person, JOe or whatever his name is, seems to have taken control of one of the member's MOCpages accounts! And hes causing havoc with it too! My, my..

Adam: ‘Joe, calm down and apologise.’

Joe: ‘Shut up Kraplan! And tim, get outta England you stupid get! Go live in a hole you yank. And give me DC back! You stole it.’

Tim: ‘Whaaat the f… What are you on about Joe? I made DC, and you tried to Nick it off me!’

Joe: ‘Shut-up and getta out England. I have your account now and I have DC which was mine anyway but you stole it..’

Tim: ‘Woah, calm down Joe, there’s no need for all this..’

My god! Seems the whole forum has turned against this person..

Joe: I’ll get all of you! EVERYONE! YOU’LL ALL GET IT!’

Adam: ‘I don’t think so Joe. The deadline has come and gone, lets play.’

Scorpier: ‘It’s all of us against you Joe, you’re not going to win’

Adam: We did warn you Joe, now, let's see what to do now...

Well, seems the Admin and the Mods have taken control of this hairy situation! Good on them too! What a team this forum has.

However, even a forum's effective Moderation team coulnd't save it from the Big Boss of Invision HQ, the hoster of this website. Shut down and long gone, this is nothing but a ghost forum, foggetten and left to rot in cyberspace...

Is this the end...?

No, not yet.

Despite all the hardships, Adam Kaplan, a mod of the previous forum hs decided ro create another one, with the help of Lorothrigs, the technicalg Admin.

As you can see, they aare hard at work creating this forum on a solid foundation, or, as it's commonly known, a .com web address! Impreeive, no?

Dr. Weston: 'No, not really..'

Shut up you!

AS the fourm opens, the Moderating teamn make sure that who ever joins can be trusted, and is not some advertising-website-spammer-monster.

The team? Adam Kaplan, Otto and Lorothrigs.

I am joined now by Alexandre , Tim Ltd and Scorpier , as they share there views on the history of the foum, so, let's here you're thoughts.

Alexandre: 'Yeah, the old one got close due to Joe, and his.. way of speaking. So, aslong as he doesn't come back, we'll be fine!'

Tim: 'Yeah, to be honest, swaering, insulting the staff and being a pain in the backside wasn't the best way to stay on a forum... That and several other problems outside the forum, which, have to remain private for safety reasons. That, and suing issues..'

Scocpier: 'Haha, yeah, shame really the old one got deleted. Ah well, let's call this one a Phoneix from the ashes!'

Haha, Thank-you for your thoughts.

Of course, we live in the present not the past, so, let's here from members Evan Melick and Blue star Legos , and the mod Otto .

Evan: 'Yeah, it's a great place. Adam has really done well with it. Same to Lorothrigs. If we have a problem, the staff help out and get it fixed almost instantly!'

Blue star: 'It's a place to meet the other members of MOCpages, Flickr and Brickshelf. We're currently stating to advertise on some websites, so we should hopefully get some new members!'

Otto: 'As long as you don't be stupid or whatever, we're fine with any members.'

Okay, thank-you.

Our last members to comment are Killernoob and Mastergonfu , so, take it away!

Killernoob: 'Heh, whats to be said? It's a place to meet new people, learn new building techniques and just a place to chill out with some really cool people.'

Mastergongfu: 'I couldn't agree more! It's not a formal forum, and we talk about anything! We have a whole range of threads, from Halo to Military to Castle! So, there's something for everyone really.'

Haha, sounds like a great place to be!

So Adam, any last words?

Adam: 'Er, not really.. EWverything's been said. Although, We'd love to see some more members from MOCpages! Really, we would.'

Otto: 'Oh boy, this could get interesting..'

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is our final farewell. So, from Dr. Weston and myself, hope you enjoyed our small talk on Outside the Brick .

So, from everyone here, farewell!

Hope you enjoyed it! Made for Outside the Brick .

Most Brilliant. You couldn't have put it better. Retarted lifeforms out there justmost greedily want to steal other people's ideas for themselves, and thank God this Forum is closed.. for the moment. In my opinion I think the Internet should not exist at all.
