    [MOC] The Mountain Oracle

    @Amicus1 Yes exactly. And then the capital is placed on top with a bar sticking through it.

    Ooh that. So much that! A lot of it, in my opinion, has to do with demographics, how well known a poster is, the type of project, all that stuff. The fact remains that Ideas is always like the lottery in some ways. I mean, yes, you will always have several thousand projects that will always be at the bottom, and never make it past 100 or even 500. The other three brackets are made up of decent to fantastic projects that never gain much support beyond a small initial push, great projects that gain a lot initially and then trickle (some of these make it to 10k over the years). And then the top bracket which just seems to fly up there instantaneously (whether because of IP fanbase, the power of social media sharing, etc...) Not implying at all that the ones that shoot up are not good projects, there are all different levels of good or bad in all of these brackets. I think for me the only thing that makes me a bit miffed is when people suggest raising the number of supporters needed as if the above proportions have changed. They haven't entirely. I mean, yes, there are more projects making it to review, but there are also more projects overall being submitted all the time, which means the brackets stay the same, the total population has just increased. When I first started on Ideas (six years ago I think? I don't know, I'm old) you would possibly have twelve or fourteen projects approved per day that would go onto the pages. And there were days when nothing new would be posted, which did give the newest projects a bit of a boost since they weren't buried on the page for at least a day or so. Currently, there's a whole lot more being approved (I should know, supporting each and every one takes so long in the mornings sometimes! And yes, I'm one of those people, but there's a reason for that I promise). So nowadays it can be as high as forty-five projects in a given day, everything gets buried, and the time span required to get the initial support shrinks rapidly. It's a race to keep the projects from being buried. That was an extremely long-winded explanation but that's my experience. My only gripe with the raising the requirements is that because more projects make it through, people seem to assume that the top bracket has expanded while the others stay constant or shrink, which is not the case. All brackets are expanding. Like the universe!

    And the Lost City project that they have seems to still be there, so they must not have found anything with that. And I'm not entirely sure it would be the subject matter either. The other Orient Express project with 3k supporters is still up there. And the two times I submitted my version they never did anything. I can't remember, what else do they not allow. Weapons and religion, I suppose, but neither of those fit.

    I suppose that deleting a project happens too, but those usually take a couple days to accomplish, when I did it it took a week and a half for them to delete it. This one went rather suddenly, didn't it?

    @JintaiZ How strange. I wouldn't imagine it violating any rules either. Even when projects are similar to what LEGO has in the pipeline, they don't just disappear from the site. (I mean, except for the one or two that were employee submissions or something of that nature).

    I saw that they removed that one! It made me sad, I said if my version never made it at least someone else's version might! Did it have more than 3k pieces then?

    MOC: Gotham City Museum Heist

    If I remember anything about that film, it's the enormous statues and ice puns. Absolutely spectacular! Those details are incredible, and so much ice!

    [MOC] The Mountain Oracle

    Just a few hours ago, the Mountain Oracle passed the 100 mark. That's the fastest of any submission I've ever made, it seems to be gathering speed! I hope it does well

    [MOC] The Mountain Oracle

    Thank you! Yes, those gaps always bothered me too, but I might be able to find some way to fix it up :)
  11. Here it is! Refinished and redone, with a couple of added bits and bobs, the Mountain Oracle! Ascend the steps of her mountain sanctuary, and just maybe she'll speak to you of the future. This is a MOC I created a while back, I've made some upgrades since the first version. The fountain down in front, as one, as well as that waterfall coming out of the mountain. And a second partial tools up on the hillside to the right. And yes, that staircase is a lot more sturdy than you'd think. It's supported from underneath the platform landing as well as by several clear supports that are hidden behind the staircase itself. This is the original MOC, that's been improved. This MOC (the resubmission) is now gathering support with blazing speed on LEGO Ideas! If you like it and wish to support it, please consider doing so! Thank you! :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f31174e5-f828-4ea8-858b-9014d457cbfc You can check out more pictures here on the Flickr page!

    The bushes in front have a neat design, haven't seen that technique before. I love the little newspaper that says "Donut thief still hungry"

    Honestly, reading the live comments is more hilarious to read than watching the video at parts. Everything from the sound effects, to the wait for the modular, to the build. I haven't laughed this much in a while, this is great!

    Very true! You know, even the mind of Elysiumfountain, it has a tendency to forget

    Or Police Precinct. But that would be PP and I think there'd be more jokes coming from that than BS
