Yeah, so did I. In fact, it got so bad that Keith cancelled DA3, due to the sites unstableness. He also tried to contact Sean and asked him about the future of the site. Rather than respond, Kenny blocked him.

I’d recommend everyone to back up all their episodes. I don’t know what the future might hold but at this point, it’s not brilliant.

If the 'Pages ends, I won't have anywhere to go. I can't get a flickr account, either. I highly doubt that the whole site is going, though. If it does, I may get a GFLUG or REBELUG membership...

Wow he blocked him? I mean I guess he probably gets quite a few complaints but if he is so busy that he can't address them and do something about them, he should have someone else take over... Maybe not a cheap proposition but you can't just completely abandon a website with so many users.

A new website would probably be a good idea. It's not hard to make a website if you just use a template but it will be tricky to find one that shares a similar format as mocpages. And I like this format for posting series. I've done series on Flickr but I prefer seeing everything on one page rather than clicking through multiple pictures. There's also the option of having a replacement site in the form of a forum like eurobricks but not sure if I like that much either...

I've made a couple Wordpress sites before though it was a while ago and I might not remember things correctly... But primarily it's used for blogs which I would say is a format that works for TI. If we can get a forum plugin, we can move over the conversation threads. The basic templates are free but I'm not sure if we would need something that is paid. But it's an easy website to build and update and if everyone can make a blog post then it could work.

However if we do consider moving the group, I think Flickr would actually be better because of the large Lego community already there. It might be hard to get more members onto a wordpress site.

I think that's the only problem in setting up a wordpress is that it would definitely be a closed comunity, like a private group here. There'd have to be a lot of link posting and advertising on here as well as flickr if we wanted to "recruit" new members.:P

I reckon Flickr would be the best option. However, I'm also considering getting a WordPress for my Insurgency series, and then linking to it from my Flickr.

Other option is to do what R.K. does, which is to copy and paste all the images and create an album for each new episode, which works pretty well too.

Hey guys!

Sorry for not being nearly as active as I'd like to be, it's been a busy few weeks on my end! However, I'd like to try and kickstart things here again, at least as much as I'm able to.

Honestly, I don't have a lot of faith in this website anymore. I'll be sticking around, but after DA3 and Sean's lack of care towards the players, It's not my go-to anymore.

That being said, my Insurgency story is till going to be posted here, though I may start posting it on Flickr as well...

Cheers guys!

There are 4 moons in System 54. Rerador, Fuyoria, Etrion and the Earth's Moon. Etrion and Fuyoria have breathable atmospheres, Rerador has cities built in atmospheric domes and the Earth's Moon has no atmosphere to speak of.

Is Rerador also a moon? I thought it would be since it orbits Tirunei with Fuyoria which is one but the description calls it a planet. But I guess it matches the definition of a moon so..

Last night I had a dream that I had either an unopened mystery minifigure package or an opened one that I wouldn't show publicly what it was.Either way,it had to do with Karmunklin not being active(maybe the figure being a mystery to all[or everyone but myself] was supposed to represent not knowing if Karmunklin would come back?).

What did you think of Altered Carbon, Ben? Personally I thought it was a little simple and maybe cliche at times in terms of plot. Not very thought provoking but the world they created was incredible. Really hope to see more cyberpunk stuff in the future and it's something I'd like to implement into TI stories

Honestly, I really liked it. I absolutely loved the world it created for itself, one of the most incredible story worlds I've ever seen. The plot may have been a bit predictable at times, but I honestly didn't know what the ending was going to be right up til it happened. The action was top-notch, I thought, and I really, honestly want to see more. Overall, I thought it was a place that no one's really looked at before story-wise, at least not in that way. I liked it, and I hope they do a Season 2.

Yeah that genre hasn't been touched much I don't think. We got Blade Runner but not much in terms of tv shows. They say they might get a new actor for Kovacs if they do a season 2 which I understand though I liked this guy

Yeah, it really hasn't. Which is one reason why I liked Altered Carbon as much as I did. And I agree with you there. I did really like Joel Kinniman in the role, but the next book in the series that this is based off of has Kovacs in a new sleeve, on a different planet, fighting a war, so if they wanted to be at all accurate to it, then they'll need to find a new guy. But maybe Kinniman can come back as Ryder. That'd be fun, I think.

Honestly I’d rather move to Flickr though. I know that format can work for a group like this. It’s a reliable and reputable site with a decent UI and there is already a large lego community there for possible expansion. I like mocpages when the site is online. It’s not the best but idk there’s something about it... The irony is that mocpages is not truly dead yet. It dies when everyone leaves. But whatever I’ll follow The Insurgency wherever it goes. That’s really all I do nowadays kinda stopped actual mocs lol

I came up with some good ideas on how I can use System 55. I think most of season 3 will take place there actually.

And on another note I was thinking about bringing back Bernd Jager.. Like right after I killed him off I thought he could’ve gotten to Will’s suit and got off the Orbital before it exploded or something.. I liked that character lol didn’t really get to develop him the way I wanted to. Don’t know where he could pop up again though so he might just stay dead. Also considering Scotch Tattersall had a clone or something made haha... Yeah lots of spoilers.....

Another strange dream last night(I have quite a few of them).There was a misty forest and some of the sequal-era Star Wars protagonists(I'm not sure who or how many exactly) were there,though Rey showed up later,and then Luke.It was questioned where Finn was,and a hologram was shown of him,Rose,and BB-8 going past some trees,and the group started to leave.That's when they noticed the First Order AT-AT above them.Luke said he would take care of it.I thought he would block the lasers from coming out,but soon laser beams were coming from everywhere,slicing trees as they went,while many lasers were swirling around Luke.I don't know if this was a separate thing or connected,but I then there was this group of tan-robed people,as well as Ents,and they apparently were at odds,and they all ran out of the forest.

Dreams are just the subconscious merging our thoughts together. It's likely just stuff that you have been thinking about recently all blended into one. Dreams and fascinating. Did you know that one study suggests that we actually dream backwards? So, like, the entire dream is in reverse but when we wake up, we remember it the right way around? Not sure I trust that one myself, but still.
Incredible.

How does one go about explaining to parents, other adults and even teens for that matter, that building with lego when you are a grown adult does not mean you are being childish. I am currently dealing with my mother who has decided lego is the root of all evil and the only way i kept her from selling my colection was to say that (not kidding here) it was for my "ministry." yeah, i love my mother but when ya say i had a devil in me because i love lego (and scifi hence why i had to delete my account) ya might be going a wee bit off the deep end of religion. :P so, any ideas how to explain that being an AFOL is normal?

I'm at work at the moment mate so I'll have to get back to you. However, just know that I feel your mother really shouldn't be judging you so harshly for your hobby. And as a Christian, I fail to see what link Lego has to 'evil'.

Yeah calling toys evil is a little silly lol... Maybe it's childish but why should it matter if there's no harm. I know Solid Brix Studios is making a documentary about AFOLS maybe that'll help lol

On another note I don't really tell people what I do with LEGO because they wouldn't understand and unfortunately there's just a stigma about collecting toys when you're no longer a child. Hard to keep from parents though if you're in the same house. For me it's more of a guilty pleasure though to be honest lol

The way I think of it is as a tool for the imagination. Lego lets you build literally ANYTHING. If you have the parts and the imagination, you can build whatever you want to. From a mosaic to a set for a story, from a depiction of a Biblical scene to a life-size sculpture - anything you want. It may be designed as a toy for kids but in reality it's used by artists all over the globe. If your parents allow any form of creativity, then pitch it to them as an art tool. Show them what you can do with it. Build something that will impress them. Don't be defensive about it. They're more likely to be accepting if you get in their good books.
Hope this helps.

Feeling a little "nostalgic" about my early episodes lol... They were short and simple and I feel my newer ones are too long. I'm thinking about going unscripted for season 3 to make them shorter. First half of season 1 was unscripted in the sense that I had a basic story idea and just took pictures and then typed up everything...

To be honest it's kind of a slog doing the pictures... Writing is fun though, I like coming up with different stories to tell. And the current season still has about 7-8 episodes left... Kinda just want to get it all done with.

To lay out my big picture plan, I pretty much already know the ending of my series which will be season 4. I'm thinking season 3 will be about 8 episodes and season 4 maybe 6-8. That's less than half of what the first two seasons are but like I said I want to keep things short. Hopefully I can achieve that goal and hopefully there is still a site with readers on it until I do..... lol

Sorry for the random ramblings. Just thought I'd share. Been pretty quiet here anyway

I'm afraid my series might get put on hold for a while since I'm going to college very soon and won't have my legos.

Yeah, apologies for not being on it. I have virtually no free time atm. I've not done any building for at least 2 weeks. I'm still writing, but even that I've not done much of, as I only get to do it on the train on my way to and from work.

Wait, do I keep my points regardless of my reboot? And can you tell me what was confusing in my build so I can correct it in my next build?

Yeah, points carry over. Otherwise it gets too confusing. Haha.
As for the confusion, it might just be because you were using similar characters to before, but I was confused as to who was who and also, were they prisoners? But working for the GI?

Okay, to clear things up. The large ship we see is where the story takes place, it's a mobile prison colony where heinous criminals are put to work as soldiers of the Imperium. The inmates are divided into groups of four, consisting of three convicts and an Imperium droid. The droid acts as the leader of the group, relaying commands of higher ups, and are also linked to a sort of kill switch for each prisoner. Basically if someone gets too far away from the droid, or makes a habit of disobeying orders, they tend to have a shorter lifespan. The idea of the prison ship is that it acts as a large boarding craft. The Prisoners enter the enemy vessel, with each group being assigned diffrent objectives. Some groups might have to take the bridge, while others might have to take engineering and so on. Once the vessel is captured, it's supplies and resources are salvaged for the Colony.

I know it's kind of a strange thing for the Imperium to do, but I imagine that it's not common practice for reasons that I'll reveal latter on.

I think it's a pretty cool premise. The prison space ship aspect makes me think of Death Troopers

Fellow Insurgency members!

Hope everyone's doing well :D I just thought I'd throw in a quick post to mention where I've been as of late, and why I haven't posted anything Insurgency related since...erm..March.

The long and short of it is that my job's kicked into overdrive. I've been training for a new position, as well as operating within several different departments. Basically, life's gotten busy, as she tends to.

Apart from that, I've been dealing with a few family issues, plus I had to completely clean and reorganize my build-space. Couple this with Decisive Action 3 and its fall-out (due to the site's frequent crashes) as well as a healthy dose of writers block an...yeah, it's been awhile.

However, I'm back now! And more Insurgency stuff is in the works. My finale for Season 2 is almost ready for posting. i just need to finish the build for one final scene, take the photo's, and then it'll be sorted.

After that, Season's 3's kicking off with a bang, and hopefully it'll catch me back up with the main story. No spoilers at this stage, but let's just say that the 'tempest' is bringing the thunder.

I've also spent the last few hours reviewing what I missed and I just want to say how blown away I was with everything! There were some truly fantastic episodes recently, and it's nice to see Winslow finally rounded out a character and a storyline!

Two other things I'll mention is that the wiki page has gone through a minor update, but I'll be adding in a few things when I have the time, like a 'Beast' and 'Species' category to help refine the search tab.

The second is that I'm aiming to compete in the annual SHIPtember contest next month. This may inhibit my TI story output slightly; however, the planned SHIP is related to the Insurgency, and if I can pull it off, I reckon it'll be pretty sweet!

Thanks for reading everyone! All the best :D

That's sad to hear. We're sorry to see you go.
--Blast--

It is indeed. Life tends to have its own responsibilities to be taken care of.

We are hoping that somehow we can still do some things here in this amazing group of yours, for this was an amazing and outstanding group to be part of and write for. However, at the moment of time and space we have, we are so limited with things to do still. Which is why our own Star Wars comic series has to end on this site and be moved on as a story based book style on another site. If we ever get a chance to take part here again and have a bit more freedom to build up our side of the story, we will give out a shout. For now, we will still be active here and there, but won't be posting pretty much anything for quite a long while here (sadly the last post was 7 months ago from a couple days ago).

In all, looking forward to seeing more from you guys from the side lines.

- Director K.W. & CGN Crew
