Featured creations
Featured LEGO creations Lately, a lot of you have been e-mailing me with questions or complaints about the daily creation that is featured on the homepage. How is it chosen? Why are creations featured more than once?

The short answer is: the creation is chosen programatically, based on ratings, comments, popularity, and so on.

The longer answer is that the creation was never intented to be a "best of MOCpages" or a "MOC of the day" as most of you call it... it was just something to spice up the homepage so that you wouldn't see the same old boring stuff everyday. And it also was meant to show you something that you might not have ever seen before... maybe from a long time ago.

It used to be chosen completely at random. But people fill my inbox with complaints (and alternate suggestions) when the creation isn't very good. So I added criteria that considers the creation's popularity before randomly choosing it. By selecting creations that have a lot of positive ratings and comments, the creation is likely to be something that everyone visiting MOCpages will like.

So for now, just understand that the home page features a creation that the community, as a whole, really likes... Even if you don't, and even if you've seen it before.
