As part of our ongoing mission to engage with other LEGO communities in a spirit of cooperation and collaboration we’ve teamed up with Brick by Brick - A LEGO Building Community (BBB) to feature their build challenges over here - hopefully to encourage a few of you to tip out those bricks & come up with some creations to share here with your fellow sluggers. BBB run three regular challenges during the week - A 24 Hour Build Challenge with a different theme each week, A 48 Hour Minifigure Vignette Challenge with varying themes and baseplate size and The Dirty Dozen - A 12 piece weekly mini build challenge. Themes & results will be posted in both groups with a voting poll in place over on BBB.
Brick By Brick’s own values and beliefs are aligned with SLUG as a family friendly online LEGO community so we hope some of them will join us here to grow the LUG further. A few SLUG members are already part of BBB too so we know SLUG members will receive a warm welcome at BBB should they wish to join - just like new members here can expect when they join us. We look forward to help, encourage & support each other together going forward.
Our public group over on Facebook has seen some fantastic growth and engagement over the last 7 days.
Active members are up. Posts, comments and engagements are up. I put this down to the influx of new members we've just had and them learning what a fun, friendly bunch we are.
Building a community is more than just providing a space for people to come together. You have to fill that space with quality content and activity that they will want to interact with. You need to make the space a safe, inclusive one, one where they will feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and ideas as well as being able to openly comment on others posts.
I'm proud of the community we are building here at Sheffield LUG and I'd like you to be a part of it. You don't need to be a member to be a part of our Facebook group: it's open to all so pop over and take a look.
