Unfortunately, I don’t have time or the resources right now to maintain the store, so I’ve had to shut it down. All of the listings have been removed on Bricklink and eBay, and the Master Builder membership is no longer available (since we can’t give out coupons). Sorry about all this.
We’ve updated the Subscription system on the Get Started page. Now, instead of waiting up to 24 hours for a Brick Studdy Moderator to email you to set up your first monthly payment, you can immediately go to PayPal and submit your payment there. You might still have to wait until your benefits kick in.
BrickStuddy.com’s YouTube channel is starting to take off! After the first video was posted last year, popularity for the channel has grown. Now we’re posting more videos. Unfortunately, we didn’t post anything about the channel here on the website, so here it is: BrickStuddy YouTube
BrickStuddy.com is almost 1 year old! The website domain will be renewed on April 26th. Concurrently, the previous versions of the site (legonerd98.wordpress.com and legonerdblog.wordpress.com) are no longer necessary, and have been deleted. BrickStuddy.com is now the only site in the family.
Toward the end of June or early July, our limited staff was unable to maintain the schedule of weekly LEGO Set Highlights, weekly MOC Highlights, and weekly Quick-Brick Fun Facts, as some fans may have noticed. Now, officially, we have dissolved the schedule and now will post random LEGO Set Highlights and Quick-Brick Fun Facts independently of a weekly basis. We will continue in this manner until we can acquire more staff members, and decide whether or not to resume the weekly schedule.
Following the drastic changes to the LEGO Ideas website on September 8th, the Elite 50 page has been shut down, because ideas.lego.com has their own list now. Speculation is that LEGO Ideas saw the interest in the Elite 50 list here on BrickStuddy.com, and decided to follow suit. With this new feature on the website, the Elite 50 List is extraneous and no longer necessary.
There is a brand new forum on the Forums page exclusively for users of LEGO Ideas who want to talk with their friends and don’t want to clutter up the comment sections on projects. The moderators on the LEGO Ideas site have been more busy than they used to, cleaning up projects when users leave many comments. So this forum has been created to releave the moderators and help out. You can visit the new forum here.
The team at BrickStuddy.com have put together a unique list of the top 50 users (in Clutch Power Points) from ideas.lego.com. On the LEGO Ideas website, only the top 10 users are visible; but with this new ‘Elite 50’ list, LEGO Ideas users are able to see a larger leaderboard. There is a whole new page devoted to the Elite 50 List, found here, and on the menu bar at the top of the BrickStuddy site pages.
What started out as a simple collaborative building project turned into a brand-new Forums Page! Collaborators, teams, co-workers, and friends can go there to chat in a private, or public, environment. We already have 5 new private forums started by 10 different users! If you want your own forum, visit the page or go to Contact Us.
The Welcome page has new stuff added to it! There’s a Creation of the Week, Quick-Brick Fun Fact of the Week, the latest Update, and (coming soon) LEGO Set of the Week. The new Quick-Brick Fun Fact is a new feature completely, as it has interesting facts about The LEGO Group, LEGO parts, and more. The LEGO Set of the Week is also new, and features fascinating information about that LEGO Set. Because the Welcome page has these new things, we’ve had to switch the contact form to an all-new Contact Us page devoted entirely to helping builders with anything they need.
