Why are there so many "MOC Olympics"
Can we put less emphasis on them and review creations that are not related to them, or just put more general creations up, please?

They are LEGO creations, and most of the round 2 ones are pretty good, so what reason is there to put less emphases? And what do you mean by "put... creations up"?

Why would anyone ever want to do this? I don't think I understand what you are getting at.

Okay, so your idea is that you want to remove everything that has to do with contests from the homepage because you don't like contests? Am I understanding this correctly?

Also... It just removes building reviews from everyone's creations... Detracts them from building real stuff!!!

"The real stuff"? So just because they are from the contest, they aren't "real"?

Anyhow, I don't want to argue, but I'm pretty sure the admins aren't going to just delete stuff from the homepage because is is from the MO. Sorry, you are just going to have to learn to be happy anyhow.

Seems to me that I like more reviews on my creations, possibly... I rebuild more of my stuff but do not put it up. OK. Most of my newer creations are rebuilds of older creations. Maybe that is what I am trying to say. :|

Suffer through it. Eventually, you will only have to see 2 things up there that say MocOlympics. That will be about December-ish. Oh, and while you're at it, why not tell us to get rid of the MocAthalon during March.

Are you insane? These builds are amazing, I don't care if they are for a contest or not. A good build is a good build. So you don't like contests, many other people do and sometimes it is a good way to practice building skills or get out of a builder's block. I would have joined the MocOlympics if I didn't have to deal with college. And if you look right now, the homepage isn't cluttered with them. They spam the homepage with great creations, that's the point of the MocOlympics. If anything, it's free exposure for up and coming builders.

You're lucky you weren't around for the Cubans though, they were worse than the contests. And don't ask me for links, search for them in the upper right corner.

And one last thing, stop making topics! You are acting like a kid named Oliver King from a few years ago. Just explore MOCpages. I've been here for over three years, and the best advice you can get is this. Unless something extreme happens like a web page is not loading and will continue to not load after multiple refreshes, or if the uploader, activity bar, or a function is absolutely malfunctioning, accept MOCpages' quarks for what they are. The website has had many problems, and it has hiccups. The last three topics you've made have no need to be in this group. Unless there is absolutley something broken or wrong, and you can't find it on the help page, which has a link at the bottom of every page, then report something here.

Uhh..... Dude. The official Olympics happen once a year. Other Non-official Olympics are going on all year. If you don't like the awesome creations from the Official Olympics, then go take a hike.

REAL STUFF!?!? What do you mean by, REAL STUFF? Do you mean, non-epic creations, and just pitiful MOCs? MOST of those MOC-olympics entries deserve 6 stars.

Okay then. Sorry mate, but I'm having a bad day, and I got a little upset when someone was saying that my favorite contest needed to be shut down. Sorry for being rude.

He's referring to the fact that the front page is ALL MOColympics entries and little else. Frustrating for people wanting more comments and likes on their stuff when they aren't in the competition.

My view is:

1. don't get so obsessed with being popular, make your mocs for you and likes are a bonus.

2. accept the MOColympics are popular and here to stay, if they bother you then don't post new MOCs till the competition ends.

Are you hosting a MocOlympics while the Official MocOlympics are going on? That'd be just silly.

Benhamin, why exactly do you feel the MOChelp group is the best place to discuss your concerns about discussions in the iBrick group? I'm struggling to comprehend what exactly you expect people HERE to do about it?

The MOChelp group is for people with concerns about how MOCpages works. I honestly don't see a question here that BELONGS in this group.

Please do not post these kind of enquiries here again, or respond about these kind of issues in this group. Problems in the iBrick group, or any other group, should be dealt with IN THAT GROUP.

End of discussion.
