  1. I like the idea!
  2. Is this a complaint or a hope?
  3. Uh oh! Why "death-to-zebras"? :classic:

  4. All good. Have fun building.
  5. This year we will be a bit lax on the rule that the entry must be created before the start of the contest seeing as we got a late start this year. Keep in mind, though, that you still have six weeks to build something new and only MOCs that were posted on Eurobricks will be considered for an exception to the entry rule. Thank you. Yes, that is acknowledged in the contest description but thank you for being about the 1000th person to remind us all that the Southern Hemisphere has opposite seasons every time this contest or a new season skin is introduced for the site.
  6. This will be allowed in the contest. Very nice work.
  7. No problem. Rick brought it to my attention when I asked what the plans were. I had a really busy November so he didn't know I had the time to run the contest this year. Be sure to thank him as well. He's much more organized than I am.
  8. We had this discussion and this will be allowed as an entry this year since we started a bit late and the answer had been given to you as "no."
  9. It's that time again!! The 7th Expand the Winter Village Contest is here! Check out all the details here.
  10. Days are getting shorter, snow is falling...in the Northern Hemisphere anyway... the Holiday Season is approaching and that means it is time for an annual tradition in the Town forum. TLG brought us a long–awaited Holiday Train this year! The Village itself, however, is lacking in new commercial or residential space so now it's up to you! Entries can be a building, public space, amusement park ride, train or anything you can think of that would fit in a Winter Village. Winter–themed sets don't need to stick to Christmas either, so represent the holidays you celebrate in Winter. We're all looking forward to seeing your unique creations to add to the Winter Village! The Rules Entries must be posted by midnight GMT, January 15th, 2017. One entry per member. Entries must be similar in size to an official release LEGO Winter Village set. Entries should be either Town-themed or Friends-themed and may include either (or both) Minifigs and Minidolls. Entries should be new (never posted anywhere previously) and be similar in style to the previous official TLG releases. All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed. Decals will be allowed if you've made them yourself, but no cutting, sculpting or modifying parts. Entries are to be placed in their own entry topic in the Town forum. The title of the topic should begin with "Winter Village: " and then give the name of the entry. The entry post (first post in your entry topic) may be edited at any time up to the end of the contest, so feel free to make improvements if you wish. Entries are to consist of no more than 5 posted pictures of 1024x768 pixels or smaller resolution but may also include a link to a folder of additional images of any size. The first picture will be used for your entry in the voting thread. Photos of your creation can be manipulated with Photoshop for levels, proportions and color correction but may not include graphic enhancements. We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not follow these rules.

  11. @fred67 I still have it. It is the bright colored brick with the red stripe in front of any topic you've posted in. Click that and it brings you to the first unread post. If you hover over it, it says "Go to first unread post" or something like that. Was there another place this used to appear?
  12. I like that too. I used to think of it every time I'd set a new default theme. I'm glad the Southern Hemisphere can now have a Eurobricks skin that matches their actual weather. I know there are worse problems in the world but still... I also like being able to force everyone to see the new theme first before they easily switch it to their preference. It's a pretty cool new feature of this version of the board software.
  13. It is the exact same difference in color as the old board.
  14. @makoy Thank you
  15. The ads should respond to the screen sizes now which should fit the hamburger menu to the size of the screen, no matter what device you're on. If you're still having the problem, update your device OS and the app or browser your visiting the site on. If you're still having a problem, let me know what device and browser, version, as much info you have, please. Thank you.
