After moving over the last month (or two), and only reading Eurobrick messages periodically, I was expecting a lot of new MOCs and messages in the History and Adventure Forum, but I don't think I missed a whole lot.  I see some old messages like white Fort Legorado but to my surprise, there hasn't been any new contests, a lot of MOCs (esp. Western and Adventure), or any fun or mysterious adventure material.  

I'm back; however, with a few cards up my sleeve, so don't be surprised if you see something new and/or different in the History and Adventure Forum.  The Ghost Rider is back! *skull*

Ah, right, you mentioned it once - and suddenly you were gone ;-)

Can't really speak for "over here", but "over there in the city" you missed a poll and another one's currently under way. Head over, check it out ;-)

When the leaves begin to fall from the trees and crunch beneath your boots... And when the dry dust begins to moisten and blow the tumbleweeds through the desolate streets, Ghost Rider will venture out from the Dark Chasm to wreak vengeance upon this town for it calls to him.  And let no man stand in his way for their death will not come easy.  There may only be one Ghost Rider standing in the streets of Ghost Town, and he will curse all others with the chill of his gun or the tightened noose of his rope.  Perhaps you are the one he is looking for... *skull*

Good move Jipay, just a lot of work.  Thanks for asking.  I have the same old configuration as I did in my old house (a computer room/office - about the same size) - and a lot of Lego in boxes in the garage.  I haven't even taken out one set yet with everything else that needs to be done.  But now that I'm settling in, I can start thinking about the fun stuff again.

Welcome back, Brickster! I'm glad your move went smoovely. :-)
You didn't really miss much, the History and Adventure forum has really slowed down :-( The pirate section has been busy though, but they also seem to have seperated themselves a bit from the rest of the forum.. :-/

Not yet, but maybe down the road.  I would like to re-visit ghost town now that I don't have to destroy what I put together (like before).  But I have some other interests now, so not sure.  I need the inspiration to sit down and build MOCs, otherwise, it's futile for me.  I have a few other thoughts aside from Wild West, but we'll see.

Thanks SD.  It's good to be back.  I missed posting frequently and thinking up new material.  In regard to Phes's Pirate Stockade, I new that this was a secret ploy to create a separatist movement- part of the Sinister Secrets of the Stockade - no, just kidding...  BTW: I really like your new avatar.  I'm delving in to Ninja re-visting some old sets.  You may see some Ninja material.  I like to hop to different themes from time to time.

Sorry Hobbes.  You always do a great job adding interest to the Town and City Forum.  I love City too.  It's a theme I always return to with my interest in trains (among my all time favorites in fact).  I bought the Truck/Bridge set after your review.  Have not seen the crain set here in the US yet.
You've got my vote for City Mayor- vote for Hobbes! ;-)

The Stockade was a very clever method of getting a forum just for the Pirates, wasn't it?  :-D  Honestly I don't really want the Pirate forum to seperate from Eurobricks entirely, rather its more like a small conjoined twin so therefore its contained within the same entity yet its still got its own personality.  How's that for analogy?

Anyway, its great that you've returned Brickster for you are the very backbone of the Western and Adverturer themes!

Mr. Phes- how's my old scurvy dog pirate friend doing these days?  Still running that Stockade like a pirate talk-show?  I bet you are!  X-D.  Thanks for the compliment.  There's other "old-timers" on Eurobricks that share the honor though.  Hope you're doing well like-wise.

I won't say the Pirate Forum is doing better than ever, but its still doing better than all the other forums  :-D

I just noticed the Title Banner for this forum...  Its very "Tatooine" because when the browser window is maximized at my current resolution (1680 x 1050) there's two suns!

I think I can give you something to look forward to.  I have a moc that I've started.  It's a silver mine using prisoners for labor and mine carts.  
I still need the work out a shaft and add some more equipment  for atmosphere.  Don't get  too excited though. It might be a little while before it's finished.

I love mines!  Not sure about the prisoners though, but looking forward to seeing.  I've only seen a few mine MOCs over the years.

Well what do you expect? The Pirate forum is only getting 50 posts per day instead of 150 so naturally I want to discover the reasons behind this.  But still, 50 is a lot more than most of the forums here, like the LEGO Trains & Town forum for example.  Maybe its moderator could take a few leaves out of the Pirate Forum book.   :-D

On an unrelated note, I was just admiring some of the different avatars from posters on this thread, and have to say, I would not trust the gambler with a smile like that.  Something says that he's the kinda guy that would have aces hidden in his suit coat. :-D
