Hi all!

A few of you have wrote in and let us know that you weren't able to log into the forum for the past few weeks.
Because we only have a few active members this correction took on a lower priority and we apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused.

With the increasing popularity of Social Media we are witnessing more of a shift from traditional forum-based conversations to more rapid & impersonal discussions on sites like Facebook, Instagram, Flickr & YouTube.

Over the past few years the customizing hobby has exploded and is no longer limited to a close-knit group of enthusiasts that share ideas, MOCs & resources. The rise of multiple 3rd party customizing ventures have made locating custom elements & printing simple enough to draw in thousands of casual fans who do not require a specific forum to converse with other customizing fans. Most of them - as already mentioned - post their creations to a variety of social media outlets. Nevertheless there exists dozens of other forums & picture hosting sites.

We went ahead and scaled back the number of forums, while keeping the original content. We will have designs on rebranding the forum graphics in a month or two once we release our new e-commerce website.

I also want to give Quickblade and the other members a giant THANKS for keeping the forums up and running while the BF staff has been busy running the 'Forge.

If anybody has any input on making the forums a better place, please reply to this post.

Sincerely,

Armothe
