I love the beach, biking, martial arts, rock climping, camping, travel, playing, and anything else that's fun. And I occasionally work too when I run out of money to play with...(c:

My all-time favorite LEGO themes are castle, anchient history and fantasy. I also love the now retired DUPLO Castle line.

I'm a purist in general, however for my minifigs I also use custom pieces from amazing customizers like Brickforge, BrickArms, Little Armory, Arealight, BrickTW, etc. Life is short, customize it!..(c;

I also run a LEGO-related blog, http://TheBrickBlogger.com/ where I share pictures, tutorials, news, and all things I learn and discover about the LEGO hobby. Updated frequently, so come by for a visit!...(c:

Okay, I just checked again and this is really weird; there are pictures where I can directly comment on the photo, and there are some where I can't. So I think this is controlled by the person who uploads the photo. I haven't uploaded anything for a while, so I'm not sure, but the point is there are definitely photos I can comment on. And not just old ones, but newly uploaded ones as well.

comment Personal part collection on the web (Bricklink or alternative)
@PSIXO - As I'm already registered I can't go back to the registration screen, but BrickLink doesn't take any of your financial information. BrickLink is operated completely separately from PayPal or other payment methods. It is up to you, as a seller, to choose your payment options later, and even then you will have to send out invoices manually, or instruct the buyer how to pay through their chosen payment method. So the point is you don't need to give BrickLink any sensitive information.

@Gabe - That's funny. I guess they rolled out (or more accurately; taken away) that feature greadually, because I was still able to use commenting just fine when I first responded to your question. But I just checked again and now I can't...)c:

comment Where do bulk lego sellers on ebay get their bricks
@Farhan - It isn't necessarily true that people who own LEGO know how much it is worth. Maybe they do, maybe they don't. Just depends on who they are and how they aquired it. Also, just like with everything else, it is not always about the money. Some people just want to clean house and get rid of stuff and they don't have the time to research what they have or sell it in the most ideal way. They are happy if you help them get rid of it all. I was reading a post on reddit about someone finding an almost new LEGO set in the dumpster!

comment Any good alternatives to BrickLink?
@Rocketmagnet - you can search the BrickLink Catalog by part type. Like for example you are building something and you run out of 2x4 red tiles. You go to BrickLink, you go to the Catalog section, look up Tiles, and it will be right there. From then you just pick the color you want and you are ready to order. :)

You can still comment right on the photos just fine. Just put your mouse over the picture and a little box will open up, drag it wherever you want it, and you can add your note. It works the same way as before. ;)

Good point. I can appreciate that. In my experience BL was easy to use from the beginning; I could find and buy the parts I wanted. However the site is quite robust and there are ways to take advantage of advanced functions. There are whole books written about how to use eBay, so BL is no different in this regard. The video and the guide are just ways to shorten the learning curve for new users.
