Dear Eurobricks Community,

Since 2008, the Reviewers Academy has strived to help put good LEGO set reviews out to Eurobricks and the AFOL community as a whole. We teach students how to take professional-looking pictures and to write detailed opinions and facts about sets. In-depth lessons and one-on-one interaction teaches students everything from the basics of reviewing to neat tips and tricks to give reviews that extra flair.

Today, August the 23rd, marks four years since the Reviewers Academy was first launched. For four years, members of Eurobricks have come to hone their reviewing skills under the instruction of the Reviewers Academy Teachers. Today, we are still going strong and students are rising through the ranks. Since last August, we have had 7 new bronze graduates (darkdragon, Bricksan, SilentMode, JackJonesPaw, Stiel, Flare, and Ferrik), 3 new silver-level students (RumbleStrike, JackJonesPaw, and Pandora), and 3 new teachers (Brickdoctor, Pandora, and mostlytechnic), and we hope for that to continue in coming years.

To celebrate, the teachers have written 20 new set reviews! Be sure to check them out below.

And if you're interested in joining this great cause, join here!

Here's to another great year!

Sincerely,

The Reviewers Academy Teachers

Ah, it looks like that link still leads to the topic in the RA Teachers' forum, so you can't see it. I don't have the powers to edit posts in this forum, but, for now, the link of the picture of the Sopwith Camel still works. (or use this link)

Happy Birthday RA!

Thank you to all the teachers that make it possible for EB to have the best LEGO set reviews on the net! Without your hard work and dedication, the world would be much more shadowy, misspelled, and lacking in substance. :thumbup: :thumbup:

I'm looking forward to reading all of those 19 eviews in the coming days.

Happy birthday RA!

I'm happy to share this experience as hopefully I will have a shiny bronze tag soon! But an even bigger thanks to the teachers for making this entire Academy work in the first place, and I am looking forward to continuing on to learning the ways of the teachers! :cry_happy: You teachers really know how to teach, and are some of the best people I have ever "met" to be donating your time to everyone to make them better at a difficult skill!

Hats off to all of you teachers and active students. I really need to get around to seriously working on the text for my review. I usually think of so much I could write, but then when I get on the computer...nothing. :cry_sad:

...I should be more organized. :look:

But thanks you all! :classic::thumbup:
