Welcome to our new admins - Blue and Dave

Postby Bruce N H » Wed Apr 17, 2013 12:32 pm

Hi all,

We are quite happy to welcome our two newest admins, Blue and Davee123. As described in the FAQ, "The admins are in charge of modifying the site, helping facilitate putting up new content, running our major contests, and setting site policy." Blue and Dave are long time members of CC and the larger LEGO community, and they've played a big role here already - Blue as a mod for the last few years and Dave more behind the scenes helping out with coding the site for the CCC. Dave will probably continue to be more in the background, but he'll be helping out a lot with site design issues. Please join us in welcoming them them to the CC administration!

-The Admins

(Oh, before someone asks, their custom titles will be forthcoming after they decide what they want. Also, I know Dave's name isn't showing up in red yet - I have to figure out how to alter that in the forum administration settings.)

Congrats guys, I noticed earlier today the change on Blues name going from green to red, and I thought she is an admin now. Cool :D

Congrats to both.

With the addition of Blue, will the skin change to a red theme, just to deflect any suggestions of narcissism. :D :wink:

As noted above, Dave is a member of CC since just about the beginning, and also of the larger LEGO community. His personal site is here. You may remember his Viking village being a category winner a couple of CCC's back or have used his LEGO-to-real-life measurement conversion tool, or seen his work in person at various cons. He's probably not as prolific in posting in the forum (or even posting his MOCs online - I remember an amazing multi-dragon layout at BrickFest years ago that he never posted online), you may note when he does post it's with deep expertise. Where he has been very active is behind the scenes - he's done a lot of programming for things like the CCC. That's more what he'll probably be focused on as an admin - working in a more official way on site architecture.

Okay now that was truly funny. Thank you for the laugh...seriously.

Thank you for all the congratulations.

And welcome Dave! I'm excited to have him around for programming.

Hey, I'm Dave, AKA DaveE, AKA Dave Eaton, AKA davee123! And as your new admin, I claim the right of Primum Figurae Femininae, the right to all your first female minifigures! ... Or... no? I'm being told no. Darn.

I've been in the LEGO community since 1999, back when LUGNET was pretty much the be-all, end-all place for LEGO discussion. That was one of the first places where castle fans battled space fans, and I put in a good fight to keep our post count higher than those ne'er do-well space-heads. At the time, I was a prominent castle builder (I built mostly castle and Star Wars at the time), and got a few awards at some of the early BrickFests (2001-2006). My Medieval Village from 2001 was considered really cool at the time, and was featured in Ikros. I also built some Rock Golems and a Red Dragon which have been referenced in Classic-Castle's Brick-Built-Beasts. In more recent years, I haven't done as much building and posting as I'd like (I've got a son who's now 19 months old), but you might remember my Viking Village from CCC VIII.

In my day job, I'm a developer. A web developer, as it turns out. I've done a few projects for the LEGO community, like a LEGO Scale Converter, a BrikWars 2001 Vehicle Scorer (back when it was painful to score vehicles by hand), the current CCC system for Classic-Castle (since CCCVI), a LUGBULK interface for my local club (which I've been trying to get LEGO to adopt), and a BrickLink price history utility (similar sad fate, awaiting approval by BrickLink admins), and even some minor work on LUGNET, Peeron, and (technically) LDraw.

As mentioned, I've been here on Classic-Castle since ... pretty much the beginning. I joined back in June of 2004 (a short 9 months after C-C started), I've just never been uber-vocal. And on that note, I'm probably not going to be doling out reprimands for abuse in the forums, or sponsoring any new building contests or anything. I'm more interested in doing some fun things with the site software itself-- like improving the CCC code to allow other management of other contests, turning the set guide into a bona fide database, and maybe getting a different CMS set up for various content.

Anyway, that's me!

Aha, now I recognize you from the past! Looks like you've taken up multiple personalities as a pass-time. Did the Admins know this before they invited you?

Oh, and power grabs on the first day are not quite kosher.

Congratulations! I could see Blue's promotion coming, and I hope to be able to get to know Dave a little more. Thanks for all the behind the scenes work you have already been doing Dave!
You would rather be building right now.
