Re: WIP - VW Bug - looking for feedback

Thanks everyone for your feedback. I thought I saw one of these a week or two ago but you wrote work in progress so that means that it wasn't likely yours. So I did a quick search to see if my mind was playing tricks on me. http://www.brickshow.tv/news/2016/06/these-chibi-sized-lego-automobiles-are...

Re: FORUMS UPGRADES

Didn't their use to be an option to show active forum topics? Can we get that back?

Note: This is different from the button that shows just NEW POSTS, which also appears to only show posts where users have unread or recently read entries.

Try one more time.... I think it should be fixed now. Seems the forum permissions were messed up. I might just re-deploy permissions and clean up the hierarchy soon. Yayy!

Trying out another change. When you are in Public facing forums the theme will be Green. At this time the remaining forums will remain blue.

Can you mod the bumper cars so they work on power functions too? rotflol


Yes, I was thinking seriously about that. I think I could automate them with magnets underneath the floor, but it was going to require a major rework of the Arena, so chose to do the swing ride instead.

Re: FriendsBrick Review of 41127 - Amusement Park Arcade

Great review Tyler. I love that style (3rd person?) of writing for reviews. If you're looking for suggestions, one thing you could consider adding for future reviews is have some 'bonus' shots with the set including other parts/characters/mocs, etc. eg. Just for fun you could have had Mia visit the...
