Technic Hall of Fame Discussion

Recommended Posts

DISCUSSION TOPIC (THIS IS NOT THE HALL OF FAME!)

Welcome to the Technic Hall of Fame Discussion topic.

Recently, we have created the Technic Hall of Fame!

The Hall of Fame is used to eternalize some of the amazing MOCs created by our very own respected Eurobricks members.

Criteria

When will a MOC be added to the Hall of Fame?

  • Frontpaged MOCs will be added to the Hall of Fame
  • Contest winners
  • Possibly some older iconic MOCs
  • When it fits the "Could this be sitting on Blakbirds shelf?!" criterium
  • MOC needs to have it's own Eurobricks topic
  • MOC should have it's own Eurobricks topic submitted by the builder of the MOC
  • MOC needs to be Technic, Model Team or Mindstorms

Jury

Who decides which MOCs fit the bill?

  • Models will be elected by Technic staff members and some gifted builders (whose identities will remain unknown), known as the Chosen Ones :tongue:
  • Suggestions can be posted in this topic, but ultimately the jury decides

Update frequency

When will the Hall of Fame be updated?

  • There's no fixed time frame
  • It can take a while between updates (adding entries)

How New Entries Are Added

  • The editor will first make place holders, he adds new entry's in one big clump (when time is available).
  • The editor prepares the new entry's in advance on a secrete part of the forum.
  • You will be (or should be) aware that the forum has a time limit that needs to be reached in order to make a separate reply and not to merge with a existing reply if it is the same forum member , this means that each new entry gets post separate reply. This also allows the editor to link to that reply directly.

Guidelines

I know these guidelines might sound a bit harsh or unfriendly, but I hope you'll understand that they are necessary, in order to make this work for everyone, and for staff members in particular. So please refrain from:

  • Sending suggestions via PM to staff members (we read the forum too, we'll see great MOCs)
  • Elaborate debate with staff members (I like this one better than that one, so why is it not in the Hall of Fame?)
  • Asking questions like "when will this MOC be added?"
  • Asking questions like "why hasn't this MOC been added?"
  • Suggesting of hundreds of old great MOCs

So am I even allowed to do something in this discussion topic?! Of course you are!

  • Have a civilized discussion with other members (and staff)
  • Suggest MOCs for the Hall of Fame.
  • Post ideas and suggestions about the Hall of Fame setup

Hopefully we will have a great Hall of Fame for the years to come! :thumbup:

NOTE

When posting suggestions....

PLEASE ADD AN IMAGE AND LINK TO EB TOPIC TO YOUR POST!!

As I said in the other topic I nominate Han's stone trailer truck:

http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=86042

Also, Sheo's beautiful front shovel excavator:

http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=91329

Both are beautiful, intricate designs, with a lot of very complex functionality. They also look just like the real thing, and are fully RC.

So, when will these MOCs be added? And why haven't they been added yet?

I do like the excavator.

Did you read the guidelines Jantjeuh?

As for adding classic MOC's, I definitely think this is a good idea as well. I can name 20+ off the top of my head that would fit there, but as you said you don't want people to list a lot of old MOC's I'll limit myself to five, in no particular order:

Jennifer Clark's JCB JS220: http://www.genuinemodels.com/jcb.htm

Designer-Han's Articulated Hauler: http://www.designer-..._hauler_6x6.htm

Grazi's Tow Truck XL: http://rebrickable.c...Grazi/tow-truck

Nathanaël Kuiper's Concept Car: http://crowkillers.c...l=NK-conceptcar

Jurgen's Backhoe Loader v2: http://www.jurgenste.../backhoev2.html

Did you read the guidelines Jantjeuh?

No, should I?

I am a car person, so I'll speak for 2 people themselves and say that these 3 should be in as well. Looking at brickshelf, it certainly seems these are 3 of the most rebuilt models posted under the technic tag. Every time brickshelf updates another one of these pops up by someone.

http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=80296

http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=73723 <-Can't find the original thread, but I remember much controversy surrounding this one both here and technicbricks. :grin:

I would also add Sheepo's Porsche and Landrover since they generated so much positive Lego interest all around the internet.

Okay, if you add a link, would it be too much trouble to embed a picture of the model?

Hmmmm....

*starts thinking out loud*

That way you guys are actually making a user generated Hall of Fame.

*ends thinking out loud*

One could way to help predict if something might end up in the Hall of Fame is to ask yourself, "Is this model currently sitting on Blakbird's shelf?". By this criteria, the models you have suggested have an excellent chance.

Are instructions required for consideration in the Hall of Fame? Many of the suggestions thus far have been for models with instructions. There are some excellent builders that don't make instructions for their mocs.

No, I don't see why instructions would be a requirement. However, instructions make the model more accessible to more people, so it helps.

Yeah, let the criteria be that the model is built by Blakbird. Then I can make it into the hall too :grin:

What? And do your job for you? Psh! :wink:

I have slept about letting you guys create the Hall of Fame......and it gave me nightmares :tongue::wink:

Let's stick to having this topic as a discussion/suggestion topic (the unofficial Hall of Fame) and staff will maintain the official Hall of Fame.

Can't argue with that. Technic gold.

Can't argue with the can't argue :wink:

Do any of you guys have a link to an actual topic about this model? I feel that a Hall of Fame MOC needs a topic to link to.

No, I don't see why instructions would be a requirement. However, instructions make the model more accessible to more people, so it helps.

Agreed! :thumbup:

Is was thinking about having an instructions Yes/No indicator, but that might change in the course of time. On the other hand, I can start adding this information and see how it turns out.

One could way to help predict if something might end up in the Hall of Fame is to ask yourself, "Is this model currently sitting on Blakbird's shelf?". By this criteria, the models you have suggested have an excellent chance.

I slightly rephrased your criterium, but it's in the Guidelines of the first post in this topic and in the Hall of Fame itself :wink::sweet:
