I assume you mean FBTB by this? I don't know why you would consider it an enemy, let alone your worst one. Sure some of their policies are a bit different from the policies here, but how does that make them enemies? FBTB is a great site, and I admire their standing by their "Respect the Brick" policy in the face of pressure to change. If anything, assuming for the sake of argument that FBTB's policies are bad, those who like this site and dislike FBTB should welcome their policy as it will drive people from them to here.

FBTB is great for US fans. Especially with their excellent coverage of sales. And if you look around, many of the other sites are based on its design.

I for one enjoy both sites (and a good number of other sites as well, i.e. Classic Castle, Lugnet, Adventurers.dk, etc.). I post on them both. I share my MOCs with both. I like having multiple sites to visit. It is fun to see which one will "scoop" the other on Lego related stories.

So lets not fight, lets all come together and join hands in a show of AFOL solidarity and sing "We Are the World."

P.S. I don't hear you singing! :P

I thought it was obvious that I´m a member of fbtb as well...
The enemy thing was a joke!
My real thoughts of fbtb is that the site have lost the big greatness it had.
I´m not saying it´s because of the mods or anything.
There are still a few good things with the site...
And I do understand it´s a good one for you how live i nthe states or in Canada.
It is also good to use the contacts that I have got over there in some matters.
For ex. the Buy Sell Trade thread that I have used several times...

So if you just make me a tone, I can sing...  ;)

I suspected as much. I had, however, noticed that there seemed to be a little animosity around the forums (or is that fora?). Mostly this came from former members. It just seems like the Lego Community has gotten a little grumpy lately. What with the changes at Lego and all, it seems like a lot of people are not happy as they used to be. I know I am feeling a bit down about the state of Lego too.  :(  Maybe we can get some kind of a support group together, like what they've gotten for those people who were so upset with our election results?  ;)

And I would have to agree with this, but that is why I've supplemented the fbtb greatness with a little bit of the eurobricks greatness, even though I'm from the US (I hope that won't get me kicked out  :-D)

And for me: 86 sets 10987 pieces and $1,334.34
I will try and change the prices into £'s so I can work out my cost. But that sure is alot of money spent on Lego, and that is just Star wars, there is alot more than that!  8-|

Yeah. I've just checked my Peeron inventory :$
Totals: 708 Sets (452 unique), 145,925 Parts, $14,923.85, 1,105 Minifigs.
And this of cause does not include Pick-a-brick, Bricklink orders, BULK boxes and all the other strange way to buy Lego   *wacko*

I think it is time to stop buying more. Or maybee not  :D

I have no idea how much my collection is worth other than a good guess for Star Wars. It has to be at least $30,000. Some of the sets and bulk bricks I have bought at half price and some at a premium price. Then there are the large 60 lbs collections I have bought on Ebay that are worth thousands if you were to count how many sets make up the collection or priced by piece.

On a side note...

I myself like FBTB as well as this site. I don't look at the whole FBTB vs. Eurobricks as a fight. I look at it as a friendly competition. FBTB has lost a little of its luster when Tim walked away (when are they ever going to change the poll) but the team that runs it now do a good job. I know that FBTB are trying to do the right thing with their "Respect the Brick" policy and I respect them for it. My one true complaint is the megablocking and fighting about what not to post in the forums. It just became too much to handle.

What I love about this site are the people that post to this forum. We all get along much better than most other forums I have ever posted to. I feel like we are all one big happy family and are always ready to welcome the newest member. I also have to thank FBTB because that is where I found the link to this site.  :D

Please lets not forget that sites like Eurobricks, FBTB, BOTB, Peeron, Classic Castle, Lugnet, ILTCO, etc. are all fans based sites that were created by fans for fans and make no money and rarely get donations. The people that run these sites spend their own cash and use their free time to update the site and post to the forums and do it because they love to. I started and ran a huge fan based website for the Dave Matthews Band for five years until I just had enough of people complaining and I shut it down. It just became too much for me to handle and at the end was no longer fun for me. I would hate to see this happen to any of the Lego sites. We all “Respect the Brick”, lets work on the “Respect each other” policy.

Just my 2 cents. Thanks for reading!

YES.

Even Lugnet has turned into a "I hate the company for changing the gray" or "Jake it is your fault".
What are people thinking.
I have stated that I hate the new dark gray. And I truely do.
But this does not make me hate Lego.
I love playing, building and so on.
Instead of ALL that time complaining they should build something great.

True.  But there is a lot more complaints than necessary on Lugnet.
Some of the complaints though are well-grounded.  Changing the colour
of the brick after 30 years is pretty megablock especially for no reason.

However, I would like to add that I use Lugnet's database feature,
which is pretty close to accurate on piece counts (most of the time).

I have over 999 sets on my set list, over 180,000 pieces, and my collection
is more than $1000... actually its probably close to $12,000 US now,
assuming average $2000 US per year x 5 years I have been
"actively" collecting, plus my childhood collection.   :$

Now starwars lego, that's significantly smaller... that's probably barely $300
worth, with about 15 to 20 sets, with around 3000 pieces.

Me to. But I think Lugnet is very slow to update the piece counts.
I have tried to put a suggestion in admin. Nothing happens  :'(

The mainproblem of our communities is that we can do a lot of noise and we know how to protest against lego... But we are not their core market  :)
