About this creation
Racing Collab

Its no secret that Mocpages best times are done for. The recent stats have clearly shown that the hype for this website is long gone - mainly because of the unfiltered content (lets call it junk, bad quality pics or no pics at all) and the big issue to not host pictures like we do these days in 2018.

It has aged, but not in a good way. MOC of a day is some lifeform of its own and the 1000+ groups are a dead wasteland of unvisited creations where people just join to gain what little is left of peoples attention...

That further leaves a commiting, friendly community almost homeless with constant website crashes and no updates. The owner is nowhere in sight or reach for contact.
Į_(ツ)_/Į

THEREFORE WE ARE TRYING TO CREATE OUR OWN WEBSITE!:

THE BRICKLINK OPTION is now not of discussion anymore since we are allready brainstorming with some fellow builders with tech knowledge!

Please comment any suggestions/ideas or thinks you want to be different in the new website!

If you have tech knowledge, join the flickr group MC Legoboy posted in the comments somewhere ;)

Cheers!

Well, I'm done here too, I guess. I haven't been active at all lately.

I think I have to agree with you. The website is outdated, insecure and there hasnt been an update as far as I can remember. But I do not really have an alternative yet.

Quoting Rebel Fleet Trooper Mocs
They didn't stop building, they just left. Mocpages had a massive outage around that time and from what I understand lost a lot of pics and pages (I think that was when the servers were damaged from the hurricane. Not sure.) There were many other issues with the workings of the site that Sean would not address (shocking) and with the community as a whole. Flickr, Eurobricks, and a couple other sites provided substantial reliability, better quality, and way more freedom. Exactly like it is now, without the flooding.

I would love to see a usable Lego MOC website. I have technical skills and could do some work on this. I looked for the Flickr link and couldn't find it. I understand the need to separate adults from kids but I am sure there are many young adults who could add tremendous value. Check out Youtube BigPlanes. So I would like to see some discussion to make the site inclusive as well as lucrative for those who want to sell their plans, etc. Thanks to all the fans who have made plans available, I am not that original but really enjoy making models from artists. I am always happy to pay something for the plans.

Quoting Bacon Tomato
Why do you think Ron's assessment of the entirety of Mocpages was directed at you? That's quite a leap of logic to read "unfiltered content" as Bacon Tomato's mocs are part of the problem. If you want an honest critique of your work, then ask for it from friends or others you can trust to be fair, constructive, and sincere. If on the other hand, you are looking to be a martyr and somehow take full responsibility for all the actual issues with Mocpages, I'm sure that Sean will thank you personally once he repairs the site. No, really.

  July 11, 2018
After sifting through a few writing prompts or custom fig posts, this place has pound for pound the best moc quality. I prefer looking at the actual build instead of an io file, and reading the builders summary. Groups and contests are fun to follow too.

Quoting Henrik Jensen ...MOCpages isn`t the right place to gather supporters!
Where should we gather supporters then? Are you not seeing that this is to help the community regardless of the site? Should we all find a nice chair on the Lido deck and listen to the band all the while ignoring the rising water level and the odd angle of the boat? Seriously, Henrik, we all want to stay here on this free site, but it seems the captain left several lifeboats earlier. And just because we have no legal rights does not mean that we cannot want something better. We want this place to thrive, burying our heads in the sand or simply running off to Flickr will never help. This is not an attack towards Mocpages, this is survival from its inevitable decay.
  July 10, 2018
Nothing against this post here. But what about the real Mocs? The creations much love is put into, the mocs we usually all have fun with sharing, watching, commenting? Most activity is spent for discussions but I notice lack of activity regarding the Mocs posted. Don't get me wrong and this is no offense against anyone here. And @Ron my friend. I appreciate your effort and would give it a chance and try it out. Regards, Sven
  July 10, 2018
Let's face it: If MOCpages keeps going on like this, without listening to the members and hearing their problems, this place is going to die. Ron's posting here can be seen as a serious warning that must not be ignored!

good idea, but mocpages has a good commenting and group system. If anything, we should move to flickr and create a main group if there already isn't one.
  July 9, 2018
I know my post was a bit provocative, but I hope my point was clear enough! When you are a user of a free LEGO fan platform, you have no rights regarding how that platform is run. The provider can do exactly whatever suits him or her! and then it`s up to the users if they will comply with that, or go somewhere else. It`s not at all my intention to obstruct the way to a new and better MOCpage, actually I`m interested myself, but as LukeCV T.R. points out, MOCpages isn`t the right place to gather supporters!
  July 9, 2018
Alright, so I know a number of you are on Flickr in varying MOCpages related groups and discussions, but there is a new one that is solely centered on just MOCpages discussion and you all might like to see it. https://www.flickr.com/groups/3717060@N25/
  July 8, 2018
As a LEGO fan, I agree that the LEGO community could be better served by MOCpages. As both a LEGO fan and web developer, I think that the Bricklink site is still pretty mediocre and that switching to it is more an attack against MOCpages than any actual improvement. As an admin of this site, I do have to say that this post lacks any photos of LEGO, and is also explicitly anti-MOCpages which I'm sure you understand is not going to be allowed to stay up in its current form. I will have to delete this post if it's not significantly changed - you can do recruiting on Flickr instead.

Quoting Henrik Jensen ... But the fact is that the web all ready has numerous sites for LEGO fans, Brickshelf, Flickr, Eurobricks, or other social medias like Instagram, Youtube and many others...
Thats where i actually see the Problem, apart from Mocpages, none of the other sites are suited for MOC posting in a "lego" only environment. Flickr and Instagramm is everything, but MOCs tend to get lost since its only one picture to host and not a full "layout" with multiple shots. Of course you can edit here and there, but its not really ideal. MOCpages was (and could have still been) the Number 1 MOC place. But someone decided not to... Also Eurobricks as you mention it has really big issues with MOC presenting, right now there is a lot of discussion how to reorganise the Topics so that MOCs still have a chance to be viewed. Like Mocpages, the amount of replies per MOC or even any replies at all is almost going against zero. Thats why i was thinking to propose it to Bricklink. Its far from a mocpage, but they are the only ones to pull another mocpages off...

@jeremy: I'm seriously thinking of hacking into the server and fixing all the leaking pipes for him ;-)

  July 8, 2018
We have no idea why Kenney's chosen to become an absentee landlord with no interest in fixing the leaking pipes. Maybe the ad revenues don't cover costs (including time and effort), and he's a saint for leaving MOCpages up at all. Maybe the ad revenues are good, and he's happy to have a set-it-and-forget-it cash cow, with all of us providing the content free of charge. Maybe the truth is somewhere in between or something else entirely. Still, it'd be nice to know what Kenney's intentions are, and to feel like a valued content provider with a legitimate interest in how the site functions. Like many here, certainly don't know or feel any of that now. And I suspect it'll stay that way until the site vanishes one day without a word.

  July 8, 2018
tbh I donít think we should really seriously consider leaving, if we do Sean wouldnít have much reason to fix the next crash; then where would all mocpages small communities go, many of us donít have ways of contacting othe people on the pages since many are partial to this site. I think we should just remain active here perhaps even only making comments once in a while in but also join other sites if possible (like BL) so that when there is another crash and it isnít fixed, we all have somewhere to go and contact friends from the pages.
  July 8, 2018
After testing out the BL MOC section a bit, Iíve found it would definitely need improvements before Iíd completely leave MOCpages for it. Right now, this is my ideal posting place. I just wish Kenny would get off his lazy rear end and do something.

Just tried to post a test MOC on BrickLink. While their MOC section might be a viable alternative for some here, it's definitely not for me. Given the nature of my MOCs and what I want to share about them, I need to be able to embed photos and video of all shapes and sizes in heavily formatted HTML text, with text and photos working together at every step. And I need to be able to build my pages in my own text editor offline. To my knowledge, only MOCpages supports all that. BrickLink and Flickr don't come close. In addition, it would take a =huge= amount of work to move even one of my MOCpages to BrickLink with a result acceptable to me. If and when MOCpages stabilizes, I'll start posting my usual pages here again. In the meantime, I'll upload the YouTube videos I would have made anyway, with some adjustments, and limit my MOCpages to the embedded videos with maybe a paragraph of text. To sink any more time and effort than that into my MOCpages at this point would be foolish. All that said, I greatly value the e-friends I've made here. I'll continue to drop by to visit their pages, enjoy their work, and socialize a bit -- at least as long as the frustration level allows.
  July 8, 2018
@ Adam. Revitalizing requires the host to help revitalize it, and he has chosen to decline the offer. Repeatedly. @ Henrik. There is more to the site's instability and picture quality as the mere reasons for a search for a new home. Encouraging any of us to "hurry over there!" is unnecessary and unwarranted. We have endured and will continue. We are trying to make sure that our needs can be accommodated on BL where we are certain that they cannot be done here or any of the other examples of sites you provided. Please do not dismiss our work here as ranting or trying to destroy this home by our absence, we want Mocpages. What we do not want is Mocpages with its many other faults and no way to fix them because Sean refuses to do anything, nor do we want anyone refusing to see around the real issues. Mocpages will continue, but what will it be when the community is as communicative as the host?

  July 8, 2018
i think what this website needs is a revitalization.
  July 8, 2018
Yes, Mocpages is rather unstable, and picture quality is often poor, but I don`t see that as a reason for leaving for good. Bricklink MOC section already exists, sŚ no one`s holding you back, hurry over there! But the fact is that the web all ready has numerous sites for LEGO fans, Brickshelf, Flickr, Eurobricks, or other social medias like Instagram, Youtube and many others. Brickshelf has a great picture quality, but is hopeless regarding communication, just to mention a few pros and cons. Anyway on the internet you can choose whatever you like, a place where you feel good! I have an account on Flickr and here, and I buy my bricks on Bricklink, but I wont change anything, and I`m quite sure MOCpages will continue even though some of you might leave!

Quoting Classical Bricks Yeah, I definitely think that the BL site needs improvement, but at least they are willing to work on it, as I know from talking with some of their employees. I think this is a good idea and hopefully they will notice this and start making changes to welcome a greater community over there.

You touch some important points. But maybe it isnt a problem with just MocPages. Curiosly enough, the graphs and statistics of page activity resembles EXACTLY my own LEGO activity. If that is not a coincidence, it could mean that the hobby in itself is going down. -Or at least the way we go about it on the net. If that is the case, then there is no need for or solution in trying to go to another platform. In any case a big thanks to Kenney for his work on MocPages!

That is a fine idea, Ron, supposing the good folks at BL are interested in supporting a (relatively small) influx of a new active community.

Another aspect I find alluring would be the ability to execute games like Decisive Action on a platform that accommodates time sensitive play. The last iteration finally had to be scrapped due to the nightmarish roaming shutdowns here. Not only do games like that improve the community but they also generate a ton of traffic, there were weeks where new categories came out and there was nothing but DA mocs on the homepage. But the other link I find interesting is that BL would harbor no ill will from those who have already left MP vowing never to return. It's BL, we all pray at that altar. I know Keith felt awful for pulling the plug on DA3 and is dedicated to getting DA4 up and running. I'll pass the word on to him about this possibility so he can research and adjust the logistics for the game to be run there instead of Flickr, it would likely be much easier. But I can guarantee that DA4 would create a healthy boost of activity, might be nice for anyone at BL to help make happen and generate some revenue.

But, if this action wakes up sometime and make him put some attention and love into this site, then count me in! If it doesn't work, then this site seems to deserve dieing...

I completely support the idea. If we can ask things from Bricklink tech guys, some software utility would be nice which can import content from old MOCpages into the new subsite instantly (text, images, links, deep linked images). That would cosiderably increase the chance of shifting.

I think the big appeal for me is that the BL site will be run by people not named Sean Kenney, that alone is worth my own exodus from here. The BL site shows extreme promise just in that respect, and if they are actively working on it then they'll actively listen. And maybe even respond when there is an issue - WHAT A CONCEPT?! I agree with Digital about the graphic heavy sites being about as exciting as a root canal or any movie labelled Star Wars (Yeah, I went there), but that can be addressed and, from what it sounds like, resolved into an efficient site that can forego all the bells and whistles and get on with accommodating a sadly declining community. I definitely do not need another photo-dump that I have to check all the time, but I will be more than happy to move all my builds there if it will in any way reduce Sean's revenue to some extent. He gave up on us long ago and I see no reason to extend him any courtesy for the lack of respect and consideration he has shown. Sadly enough, I think the only way he would take notice would be from another mass exodus; with some place we can go, he can rot here by himself.
  July 6, 2018
Another place where I don't talk to people that often? Eh. I blame the mass exodus for that, but still, I don't know. I like the idea of having more than one image per page, but I'm not sure about it's layout. I just don't have enough experience with it to really know, but it feels a little scattered. And I also don't want another place to check in on. Call me lazy, I don't care.
  July 6, 2018
LOL... I literally JUST found out about the MOC section of BL ... IDK tho, I still think the site has some hope. We'll see.
  July 6, 2018
Is it possible to get a Bricklink account if you are under 18? Because that would be a big problem for me if you couldnít.
  July 6, 2018
Well I suppose someone should point out that ironically if we had active admins on this site that this MOC would probably get deleted for not having any pictures of LEGO :) As for BrickLink, that's at least interesting. I haven't uploaded anything or used it much so would be unfair to judge too early, but I would just say two things. Firstly, for me, the BL site has been getting noticably slower over the last few years, presumably due to increasing number of users, and between this and the somewhat heavy/bloated design having to use the site isn't one of my favourite experiences. Which brings me nicely to the second point. Oh how I utterly despise infinitely growing pages, especially ones that are graphic heavy. I don't know which internet site first came up with this idea (or why so many copied it) but I wish someone had buried a pick-axe into the designer's spinal column.

Quoting Sven ;o) You cannot shift an old tree without it dying my friend. That's my personal point of view. I'm old, I like this pages no matter how often they are down. I have lots of memories connected with it, I like the simple system for leaving a comment, a rating or both. Okay, pic uploader could be more modern, Mods could be more active (more are needed to do this job) and Sean could care more about this site. But I still like this place. Not everything is bad here. But it's my humple opinion and I will remain here as long as possible. And when I'll be the one who turns the light off. But I could give the new site a chance.
I also believe that it is not necessary to leave permanently. But to try a new platform-why not?

  July 6, 2018
Btw, it's fact when all decide to leave that this page will die... I don't know how to say it in english, but I try it: It's only a matter of time when the new page will experience a time of inactivity or leaving members. That's something which is happening on every site from time to time... I know this from several Forums I'm member at.
