Hello everyone! Over the past few weeks, I have been talking with Kim at the LEGO Group, a member of LEGO's CEE (Community Engagement and Events) team, who specializes in online LEGO fan communities. The point of my conversation was for us at Brickipedia to get support from the LEGO Group as a fan community. Such support can include getting contest prizes from the LEGO Group, sets to review ahead of their release, or the opportunity to do interviews with LEGO employees.
The good news is that after being evaluated, Brickipedia's request has been put in the setup for online community support in 2014! We will hear back from Kim and the CEE team in October/November 2013 for further planning.
I also explained the Brickimedia network to them, so when/if we do move back to Brickimedia, we will be able to work on transferring the LEGO Group's support.
