I can’t see Meeting Times/Info since i’m not a full Member yet :(
@ EmilyGeekX « Sep 10 7:14 pm »
Hi! I would like to attend the meeting this friday but am looking for details?
@ TroopaDee « Aug 21 10:43 pm »
Hey what’s up
@ Bricksky « Feb 19 6:54 pm »
hi...?
@ Bricksky « Jan 5 4:50 pm »
Don’t forget to order some GBC balls! ;P
@ TroopaDee « Dec 24 10:55 pm »
Merry Christmas my dudes
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:55 pm »
CYA!
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:55 pm »
Later, everyone!
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:50 pm »
So it seems.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:47 pm »
True, but most people lose the differentiation.
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:47 pm »
Good suggestions and feedback isn’t complaining.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:46 pm »
Well, I’ll try to not be the complainer out there... I’m just happy to be there... and helping where i can.
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:45 pm »
Yes, but there’s a good argument for each. I’m personally a fan of non-random teams, but I totally see the other argument as well.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:44 pm »
Okay, back to work I must go.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:44 pm »
As is any topic related to Lego in a group of Lego fans... haha
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:44 pm »
That’s a very divisive topic.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:43 pm »
True. I did like the random teams that happened at BrickCon. Kepts from going up against a stacked team!
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:43 pm »
That is exactly it. No event I’ve ever been to has ever done it in the most logically correct way.
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:43 pm »
We’re going to test run it at BricksLA. BrickCon is also keen on it, I think. There’s a few more complex things to figure out such as teams and concurrent events. It’s mostly just logic figuring out.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:42 pm »
Awesome! Can’t wait to see how it plays out. That should keep those who’s bottom pick is a certain game (chosen just to make sure to get something) can differentiate their preference. Seems everyone is a passionate about certain games, and no two like the same selection of games.
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:41 pm »
Remi & I are partway through a thing which lets you choose in priority, then auto-assigns the best possible fit of people. Currently have more spaces for participants for games (300+ spaces for 250 attendees) so everyone should get into at least something, probably multiple, if they try.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:39 pm »
Pick in order of preference, or anything like that?
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:39 pm »
Awesome. Any new plans for how game selection will go?
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:38 pm »
Okay. I’ll go with the excel again. Scheduling is what I plan to get on asap in the new year. More games to fit in!
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:38 pm »
I formatted it in Excel. Any format that I can copy and past from is great... essentially not a picture or a PDF.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:37 pm »
We haven’t hit our min yet... but many haven’t weighed in yet either.
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:37 pm »
I know I sent you guys a probably terrible excel sheet of it. Is there a format or software or something you’d recommend using for the future, to make it smoother/easier for her (and you, if you get involved)?
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:36 pm »
Side note to the DKK voting thing, where people say that’s not fair to people who buy less, the "little guys": In the example of VicLUG, they struggled sometimes to reach the minimums - so it was essential that the "big guys" get to spend lots, so the order was even possible. Probably not the case with you though.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:35 pm »
Yes I did assist in making it fit and behave itself
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:35 pm »
Yeah I better get some work done too...
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:35 pm »
Other topic for Jason: I think you helped a bunch along with Sarah when it came to the schedule formatting for the BrickCan program. RIght?
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:35 pm »
I want the whole process to give everyone a fair chance. I’d like to be treated fairly, and thus I try to do the same for everyone else.
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:35 pm »
time to get back to work ha ha ttyl. ;)
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:35 pm »
Bingo, Tyler.
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:34 pm »
Ignore them.... Many wouldn’t complain if it was in person....
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:34 pm »
OKay, that GIF is disturbing... gonna remove it
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:33 pm »
Yeah. I have nominated Keith for a new role in the directorship: Enforcer!
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:33 pm »
Anyway. Not trying to tell you what to do, by any means. It’s totally your thing and I have no skin in it. I’m sure it’ll turn out great, just was surprised with some of the hate going on in the thread.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:33 pm »
Me, trying to get things in place!
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:32 pm »
That worked well
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:32 pm »
The last year I ran it, we cut from about 200 to the 85 and I think there were about 4 parts that people defended with good reason, and we adjusted appropriately, and all was well.
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:31 pm »
Crickets are good, it means no one cares enough to bother or speak up. Most people only care that much when prompted.
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:31 pm »
that works... give people a chance to move dkk to another part, or speak up to save... ie for project...
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:31 pm »
Silence to me means they won’t miss the parts.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:31 pm »
Tried that.... got crickets....
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:30 pm »
Not the dark, necessarily. I did a thing where I’d highlight parts that were going to be cut, so people who really cared would have some warning of it happening by a day or two, and could speak up to defend it if they had a good case.
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:30 pm »
Where’s the "EVIL" smilie... :twisted:
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:30 pm »
:)
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:30 pm »
Yeah, I’m now in control mode. Follow the rules or lose your say in the matter. :)
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:29 pm »
Yup. The law has been laid down now. Only those who have registered under our LUG have access in order to limit the amount of chatter about it. I wouldn’t exclude you John
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:29 pm »
yes, keep them in the dark, people will notice cuts, no need to explain (justify) them...
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:28 pm »
Likewise... lol. How useful is this really then.
@ J1A3L5 « Dec 21 2:28 pm »
About the lugbulk thing (Pierre never invited me to the sheet, even to view...) but most clubs seem to have found that the more discussion about the mechanism it happens, the less happy people are. Some of the comments seemed a bit outrageous, but I think just taking control and doing something reasonable is the best way.
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:28 pm »
Now that I have an audience i have nothing to share... ha ha :|
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:27 pm »
I like it. Its how I knew somoene was here....
@ Bricksky « Dec 21 2:27 pm »
WOW! acknowledgement of existence. Intelligent life form confirmed! :P
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:26 pm »
I’m not a fan of the sound effects...
@ TheRebricker « Dec 21 2:26 pm »
