never did it, but i would like to participate, how many time do you have for it?
There is enough time pressure at school or at work, no need for a time limit when it comes to Lego stuff. However, if you join we do expect you to take it serious and follow the courses.

seeing that loads of people do have a full-time job or something like that.
eitherway i'm very interested in doing so, making a great contibution to eurobricks.
i've got my three sets already built-up, but i can buy a new smaller set any time.

i wanted a RC train to try anyway :)

There's getting to be a lot of people, but if there's still room, I'd like to join. My Redman's reviews could use some improvement. default_blink.gif

Well I also wouldn't mind making some reviews. I also have special equipment to make LEGO macro shots (Light tent + DSLR cam).

EDIT - I currently only have acess to one set, AT-AP, but in mid september I will be back home and have acces to more sets. What is your opinion on this situation? (I meet all other requirements)

I'm in, I have 3 sets, but 1 has a color change so it can be for a diffrent faction, and the other has a mod to make it more stable. noting major, and I can reverse the color change if needed. I found my camera just for this honestly.
So am I still waiting, for this world to stop hating. Can't find a good reason, can't find hope to believe in.

This really looks like a good initiative.
Every so often when there is a new review up, I fell it is so disappointing to see shaken and misfocused photos.
A good discussion on how to build up a review is also welcomed. We can hope for better reviews in the future.

I will keep making moc-post my own way though, with my own style of pictures, thank you   :wink:

Wow, I would love to join the Academy and learn from our master reviewers ;)
It won't be easy as it means hard work to follow the lessons and make homeworks, but I'm sure it would be worth the effort.

I'd like to apply for admission to the Academy.  I have plenty of sets and a camera, but I have problems taking good, quality photos.  My pictures always tend to be too dark, or overwhelmed by long shadows.
