Today TBs celebrates its 3rd anniversary.
163 posts later and over one million pageloads since one year ago , once more, the number of pageloads almost duplicated in comparasion to the previous year. The participation of our readership has clearly increased also, as seen from the average number of comments left to the posts and discussions taking place.
However it looks that TBs has reached a sustained level, that won't increase that much in the short term. With an average of near 3.000 daily pageloads and a faithful readership, it seems we have somehow reached a significant part of the LEGO Technic fans community.
New posts have not been published so frequently as before. It is not easy to find the mood and time available, to run such a project over the long run. Many other LEGO projects with real bricks are sometimes put aside, but after all it pays off.
On the other side if we look around over the internet for LEGO Fans related websites (MOCpages, YoutTube, Eurobricks and many forums) it is also clear that there is a growing LEGO Technic fans community, more mature, willing to show their projects and discuss ideas/techniques, that there was three years ago.
This is a very positive sign and somehow relieve the pressure to come here so often to publish new posts.
Very positive was the achievement of closer ties from the LEGO Technic designers team with the community, which allowed for instance to have here a new 2010 set revealed in exclusive, one contest with real LEGO prizes, some interviews with TLG personnel (there is more to come), and a few clarifications when there is relevant questions.
Thanks to all of you who come here everyday, giving your support and contribution to make this project keep growing.
You are welcome independent if you come to leave a comment, to participate in the polls, to e-mail us news and suggestions, or just to read about the latest news.
And a few more spots across the Pacific, Indian ocean and Atlantic. Again, there might be a LEGO Technic fan, almost everywhere...
Now lets celebrate with the already traditional anniversary Technic "cake", cooked by Alexandre.
This year in a static fashion, since our Chef left the scintillating cake version burn...
Edit: Well... the scorched cake got a fix and it is now served!
Being afraid it may be not enough to everyone, we decided to leave the first one on the table as well - Hey guys, just one piece of cake for each one!...
Now it's time to start another journey and hopefully we will get here again in 2011, to celebrate another TBs anniversary.
We're still plenty with new ideas to increase the TBs experience. - So we find enough available time to make them happen.
