Determining Founding Groups
Join to comment
 Group admin 
The way this thread works is that group representatives may recommend groups that they help run to member positions (this ensures that we don't agree to include a group without its staff's knowledge, commitment or consent).

EVERYONE in this group may cast votes on each nomination and is encouraged to do so.

If it seems that most people agree to accept a group, then it will be allowed to send representatives to the Hub staff group from its own, and the Hub staff from these groups will later determine amongst themselves which other groups may join in the future.

The Lands of Mythron - 11 votes for inclusion, 0 against*
The TFOL Private Club - 10 votes for inclusion, 0 against*
Star Wars Lego Creations - 10 votes for inclusion, 0 against*
The Insurgency - 8 votes for inclusion, 0 against*
The Fellowship of the Brick - 6 votes for inclusion, 0 against*
Christian TFOLs - 8 votes for inclusion, 2 against*
The Bionicle Weezhads - 8 votes for inclusion, 4 against*
The Technique Exchange Group - 5 votes for inclusion, 4 against*
ABS Forever - 5 votes for inclusion, 5 against*
Lego Fans of the Lord of the Rings Online Game - 2 votes for inclusion, 2 against*
Backup LEGO Lord of the Rings Gallery - 1 vote for inclusion, 3 against*
LEGO Fans of Jonathan Park - 1 vote for inclusion, 3 against*

*For now, I'm counting all of the people who say that they might yet change their minds about declining to vote for a group as "against" until such time as they do, in fact, change their minds.

I'll go first: I nominate the Lands of Mythron for representation on the Hub staff. The Lands of Mythron is one of MOCpages' most active groups in terms of chatter, group events and group-specific building, and it has been consistently active since March 2013 when it was founded. Turnout for its monthly challenges ranges between 10 to 30 builds, with at least as many (and usually more) freebuilds and other challenges participated in monthly. What's more, as a popular medieval/fantasy role-playing game, it regularly inspires passing visitors to join MOCpages and veteran MOCpagers to find new inspiration to be active.
All factors considered, I believe that the LOM is an important part of the MOCpages community and I sincerely hope that all of you will agree that it is well worthy of being represented in the Hub.

Can't argue with that. A few months ago I was one of those passing visitors. Now thanks to LOM I build like a pro. :P

I would Like to nominate THE BIONICLE WEEZAHDS, Its a small group But its also new and very active. I know the probability of you guys voting for TBW is about 4 out of 30 But still, The members of TBW represent a lot of the Bio-Mocing group leaders and I think they deserve a chance.

Thanks for nominating our group, Shock! It really has grown in very little time. We're about to reach 50 members and 500 discussions. Most of it has only been in the last month or so, but it is (actually) even more active than Okoto Station has lately been (What a SHOCK. hahahahahahahahah. Laugh with me, guys! Hahahahahahahahah!

I'll second (or is it fourth?) the LOM nomination. For the Christian TFOLs and the Bionicle Weezahds, they are definitely active enough, but I'm not quite sure they are central enough to the Mocpages community to be part of the starting staff of the hub. I may yet change my mind though.

If you represent the group (meaning you're not some random member of it, but have some authority), then you can nominate. For example, I couldn't nominate the Insurgency because, although I'm technically a member, I can't speak for the staff. You certainly could nominate the Weezahds.

The Weezahds do look pretty active, but I have two concerns. First, it's a fairly young group, so it's not as safe a bet as some groups that have been active for a long time. Second, the fact that membership is by invitation only means that it's not an immediately accessible group for most MOCpagers. I'm not going to vote against it quite yet, but I would like to see if any other Bionicle groups get nominated first.

By the way, sappy is good. Sappy gets the point across. : )

Although I personally am a member of a religious minority on MOCpages, it's easy to see that there are a lot of Christian TFOLs here and that a lot of them feel welcomed by the presence of groups like this. Since the CTFOL group can reach more members than the Christian Homeschool Group, I'll vote for its inclusion on the Hub.

Uh, my computer says it is public and anyone can join. I realize it is a new group, so I'll give you a pint across there, and if it IS by invitation only (Which I didn't even KNOW it was) then I'll change it.

Plus it seems likely that TBW will be the only Bionicle related group to be represented by this group, (Even Okoto Station seems very unlikely to be voted in) You can even look at the most popular Bionicle groups and see that not only are we about to be on the second page of the most discussed Bionicle groups EVER, but you can go through the groups above Shock's and mine and look at which ones are even ACTIVE anymore. (Very Little) I'll share statistics soon.

Oh, and sorry if I sound defensive, I'm in my school's debate program and I'm in debate mode at this time of year.

Groups I'm influential in and would nominate:

ABS Forever: Third most members, fourth most creations. Lots of reach with builders who are on the quieter end of the spectrum.

The TFOL Private Club: Up until a few weeks ago the most comments of any group, still the most active group in terms of discussion.

Star Wars LEGO Creations: Massive group, should see a renaissance with Episode 7.

I'll nominate the Technique Exchange Group. It has been Inactive for a while, but I'll be doing some things to try and get it more active again, and my hope is that the hub can help revitalize the group. Regardless of how active the group is, it has tips and tutorials for almost everything, making it very useful and giving it a large potential audience. If we can get the group active again, it has the potential to become very influential in the mocpages community.

I'll second all of LCV's nominations. ABS forever is obviously a huge group with a wide reach and a large audience. Although I can't see the TFOL private club, I suppose it's active enough, although its members are sort of limited. Star Wars creations is good to have because lots of new builders start off as Star Wars builders, and in that way, this group can reach out to many new members.

That point also works for the Cristian TFOLs, but that group does have a somewhat limited audience. Still, I'll back that nomination, in the hopes that the group can reach out to new members (who often are Christian TFOLs).

Hi. I'm a Bionicle Weehzahd. Are you? Cool. Once you are invited, you become a Weehzahd too! How do you get invited? If you make multiple MOC's that impress me, Saxton, or the other admins, we'll add you to the select few that are weehzahds. So get MOCing! Yay.

This was the comment that gave me the impression that this was a by-invitation-only group. Sorry if I got it wrong, but it might be useful to edit that message to be more clear. I'll still hold off on the confirmation, though.

ABS Forever - I vote no. It's been stone cold for as long as I can remember, so it's not really serving as anything more than another gallery. If it gets revitalized at any point, then it would be a great addition to the Hub, but it's not going to be much help until then.

The TFOLPC - I vote yes. Reading the actual rules makes all of the rumors of "purges" and the like sound less chaotic and cultish, so I have no problems with welcoming them in at all.

Star Wars Lego Creations - I vote yes. It's both old and active, and the revived activity bar and new movie will definitely help.

Technique Exchange Group - I vote no. The same reasoning applies here as to my thumbs-down on ABS Forever; although I think it's an awesome group, it needs to get its activity back before it should be admitted.

Everybody probably has their own opinions on this, but I personally would not use a site like mocpages to choose my religion. :P

About the issue in general, I don't think that making Christian TFOLs one of the founding groups is religiously biased. If there were any other religious groups that were just as strong, I would approve those as well.

I'm christian too, but there's a difference between individual promotion vs a group claiming to be a mocpages hub including only one religious group in its members. It's comparable to this: it's fine for most of Americans to be Christian and express those religious views, or for government leaders to be Christian, but it wouldn't if, for instance, one of the government offices was the Pope, and no other religious leaders get governmental representation. Or, to use a more accurate analogy, if the government officially supported any religious group with over x amount of members - not really fair to the other religions, even if it makes initial logical sense based on numbers, so it's best to support none of them to avoid any issues.

In the end though it doesn't harm anyone. People don't have to join the group just because it's part of the hub and the good Christian thing to do would be to allow anyone to join the CTFOL group if they want to so should there really be an issue here?

I agree with this. It's really not that big of an issue. Plus, if anybody get upset that the hub doesn't have a group for their religion, they can just go make a group for their religion, and when that group gets popular enough, they're in too.

I understand why everyone is against us. It's because we are a fairly new group.

Keep in consideration that we are the only Bionicle group who has been nominated.

Or is Bionicle not popular enough to be represented?

At least keep us in consideration for later if we keep growing.

But still! Bionicle seems like a pretty large topic and there is only one group that has been nominated and everyone is against it.

Even though it WOULD seem nice to have a Bionicle group in for inclusion, I completely understand your reasoning. We are a pretty small group, not known very much at all, honestly, and not very young (What you may consider young), but a fairly recent group here on the 'Pages.

And thanks to those who voted us in. It tells me that some people seem to recognize that our group may have potential. :)

Another thing to consider is that most of the groups aren't specific themed groups (LOM and TI are RPGs and they're large, so it's different); the only theme groups are FOTB and SWLC, both of which are large, super popular themes, extremely active, well-known, professionally run, etc

The only question now is, how large should the percantage of positive votes be to assure that a group will be accepted? Or should there just be more positive votes than negative ones?

I vote for Lego Lord of the Rings Online, because I see some potential there (I mean it's a great side-bracket for LOTR fans who also love to play the Online game). But I also agree on not including the other two groups.

Does a founding group have any responsibilities and things it has to do that other groups don't? If so could you say what they are please?

Founding groups have representatives on the Hub staff and will be featured in regular updates in the Hub news (other groups will still be featured in the news, but less often, and they won't be able to send representatives to the Hub staff). Eventually, other strong, active groups will be added to this category, but these are the ones that we want to draw our initial set of staff members from.

So the founding groups is just a way of getting the original admins?

More or less, yes.

I can put them on the list for consideration. They're kind of on the small side, though, so I'm sorry to say that I'm not going to vote for them. The largest is half the size of the smallest that's been accepted so far, so they're a relatively risky bet.

I also vote no on all 3

We should link my new group, Contest Central, into this thing.
