1,000 posts and 1 year!

Postby SSchmidt » Fri Jan 31, 2014 5:53 pm

Well, I missed the 1-year anniversary, but I did so in order to tie it in with the 1,000 post mark in one super thread ;)

You guys are fantastic, I have never been more attached to an online forum.

The Lord of the Ring’s LEGO got me out of my dark age, and I started collecting and building again. Then, one day while just googling Lord of the Ring’s MOC’s, I found a build that just stunned (I think it was Blake Baer and Amon Hen?). After browsing his FLICKR, I ran into LCC users, and this big “faction war” taking place on classic-castle.com. It really piqued my curiosity. I started lurking the forums and seeing all the fantastic builds, excited, but thinking to myself, “I can’t get involved, I could never build something that good.” In January of last year, I placed my first bricklink order of 30 Kingdom Dragon Knights, and the rest is history! I browse this forum multiple times throughout the day, and I cannot get enough. And while I am certainly no Derfel Cadarn, I feel my building has improved tremendously.

I want to especially thank all the moderators and Admins who put up with my lunacy and help keep me in check.

Since joining I’ve been able to participate in many contests, trades, hosted an online draft for the Council of Elrond, hosted a Jambalaya, and have made many, many friends, (and even received fatherhood advice from Bruce after the birth of my first son (I am eternally grateful Bruce!)). You guys have welcomed me to the group, eased me in, given me solid advice, and even been there for encouragement through the birth of my son and the completion of a Master's degree.

This is more than just a LEGO forum to me. It's a place where I can come and unwind, relax, get inspired, and laugh at every time Blue has to "reign the boys in" because we are notorisouly bad for getting off the task at hand :tasty:

I especially want to give a shout out to a few guys I regularly interact with (and pester); all of the people in the LCC roleplaying game, especially the Outlaw faction (way too many to list!), bronx, AK_Brickster, Lil_Curt and Aeridian before he went AWOL on us :(. Also all of the dynamic builders who have inspired me, my favorite being; Caelan (Gary_the_Procrastinator), The JJ's, Mark and Bro Steven, MattiusXavier, Disco86, and the one and only Rifirori (Adam your builds are arguably the best ever because of their fantastic story to accompany them).

Now my personal sentiments are over, thanks for reading ;)

Here's for another year and 1,000 more posts :mrgreen:

Absent without leave.
It is a military term.

I don't want to get too technical with it, but it more or less refers, "you have left your post/gone missing without permission."

That's from a civilian's perspective of course. Someone like Bronx could really elaborate if they wanted to ;)

I've enjoyed what interaction I've had with you, especially being part of the first online draft that AK hosted, and more recently seeing you get some builds out.
Congratulations on 1000 posts :)

Congrats on your 1000th, I am gonna celebrate my 200th post in some weeks/months :) On a serious note, your comments are very much appreciated! Thanks for mentioning me, I am glad that my MOCs and stories make you smile, I always try to make either/both of them entertaining.

I can assure you that your building skills have been continuously improved, especially after you finally switched to the Outlaws! ;) I mean that.

Cheers
Adam
