LEGO Castle Adventure
Bruce N. H. 27 III 09

LEGO Castle Adventure is an exhibit currently on display at the Children's Musem of Indianapolis. The display includes many activities designed for kids; great models like the Neuschwanstein above, built by LEGO Master Builder Erik Varszegi; and even a castle designed by a fan, who won a contest in the Brickmaster magazine. The display models were built by LEGO professionals, with the larger pieces built by their team in the Czech Republic and the smaller models of individual castles built in Enfield. Members of IndyLUG have gotten involved with promoting this event in their area. According to the press release, children will be able to learn about life in a castle, do some building of their own, dress up in period costume and even joust and shoot a catapult. It looks like a lot of fun. The display will be at Indianapolis until May 3 and will then travel to other children's museums around the country. They're booked for the next five years, so hopefully it will come to a town near you. We'll be sure to post additional dates as they are made public.

The forums are back!
CC Team 08 III 09

Welcome back, Classic-Castlers, and welcome to the new forum!

So far we've not seen any problems with the forum, but if you see something that shouldn't be there or is missing, please report it to an admin immediately. If you find a potential exploit, please, think of the greater community here and don't take advantage of it, just report it.

If you are having problems logging in, it's probably because there was a problem with your password getting lost in the conversion process. Since none of the Admins and Mods have had a problem yet, I expect this to be a very rare occurrence. However, if it's happened to you, use the "forgotten password" function.

Please expect some growing pains as we get used to this new forum software. There are many more features available to everyone than what we're used to, and there is sure to be some things we've missed to implement or turn off from the upgrade.

A little information: It's taken over 18 hours of work to convert the forum. About a third of this time was totally automated (but needed constant supervision to press "OK" buttons), and another third was for testing and tweaking.

We would like to thank you for your patience in this time of upgrade, and we hope you continue to enjoy your stay here at!

Classic-Castle Forum Shutdown & Upgrade

CC Team 03 III 09

Attention all Classic-Castle members:

The great forum upgrade is about to begin! We will be attempting to upgrade this forum to the new software version which will hopefully not only improve security, but also improve your experience here.

However, in order to not lose any data (or users) during the great upgrade, the old forum must be shut down so the database can be properly copied and migrated. So this Friday, March 6th, sometime after 12 pm Central Standard Time, this forum with be shut down. The process could take hours. It could take days. If it takes longer than a week we will abort the process entirely.

We hope when the dust settles there will be nothing lost and everything will be fine. However there is a chance something will go wrong. The documentation assures us that this forum will remain unchanged by the new forum software, so in a worst case scenario we'll do what FBTB has done - turn this forum into a museum and start over from scratch with the new forum. Second to worst case scenario is to continue to use this forum.

Use this time to build, come up with new ideas. We look forward to what you come up with.

In the mean time our sister site, the Forbidden Cove is prepared to host our users while they cannot access the forum. Your account here will not work there, so go ahead and join their forum now if you plan to hang out there.

Also, the CC Chat room (accessible from this home page) will still be active, and at least one Admin or Mod will be there most of the time during this process, should you need a CC fix. Thank you for your attention.
