UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: December 2016

It’s the December 2016 episode of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas. Once again it’s your host SilentMode, hopefully aiding some more LEGO Ideas projects in their quest for 10,000 supporters. Once again I’ve missed the deadline for this edition, but I hope you’re having a Happy New Year so far. Preamble Here in the UK, allegedly as […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: November 2016

Welcome to another edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, exclusive to SilentMode.tv: the world’s most obscure LEGO fan site. I’m your host, and this is my first post on the site in a long time. It’s also our first UNDERATED post that’s on time for quite a while. Preamble I’ve seen quite a few people complaining about how rotten […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: October 2016

Welcome to another edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, exclusively on SilentMode.tv and with your host, yours truly. Unfortunately this edition is again later than usual, because of various other things that came up. Preamble This month’s preamble was going to expand a little more on my indefinite abstinence from events, and the parallels between exhibiting at […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: September 2016

Welcome to the belated September edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: exclusive to the world’s most taboo LEGO fan site, SilentMode.tv. This edition is late primarily because last weekend was the Great Western Brick Show, and I was feverishly trying to build and repair the new and improved Mascoteers mini site that nobody visited in the end. Preamble Speaking of the Great […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: August 2016

As promised, it’s time for another edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, exclusively on SilentMode.tv – the AFOL site that isn’t afraid to tell people what the owner is really thinking. Preamble I’ve been back on my day job and working elsewhere. On top of nine-hour working days and nightmarish commuting, I’ve been keeping an eye on […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: July 2016

Welcome to July’s edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, which you can only find on the world’s only taboo LEGO fan site, SilentMode.tv. We’re looking into a fixed schedule for these posts, and at the moment it’s a choice between near the beginning or near the end of each month. This month’s (August) edition is likely to happen closer […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: May 2016

Later in the month than we’d like, it’s time for another episode of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, which you can find exclusively on SilentMode.tv. This month we’ve found ourselves having to pull a LEGO Ideas, with an announcement that we couldn’t find any projects to feature this month. We’ve browsed through the Discover tab on LEGO Ideas at […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: April 2016

It’s that time of the month again, and not a red streak in sight: It’s UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, exclusively on SilentMode.tv, and I am your host. Here at SilentMode.tv, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes that people won’t appreciate. It’s often the same with LEGO Ideas projects, whether they reach 10,000 supporters, 100 supporters […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: March 2016

Welcome to this month’s episode of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas, exclusively on the site they love to hate: SilentMode.tv. (I say that out of exaggeration, whether or not it’s true.) Some people have appreciated my efforts to promote their projects, others shrug it off as nothing, and some have even tried to belittle it in various ways. Whatever opinion you personally have […]

UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas: February 2016

It’s that time again: welcome to another edition of UNDERATED for LEGO Ideas. Yes, we’re keeping the misspelling of “underrated”, because it seems to have stuck! Though the pickings for this month are relatively slim, I wanted to quickly address the very real issue of badmouthing. I’ve seen it happen countless times with crowdfunding campaigns and LEGO […]
