Introducing r/afol

Newer Older

A few weeks ago a friend of mine and fellow hobbyist started up a new subreddit. r/afol is a new subreddit geared more for builders and hobbyists, not just people who want to show off how much they bought at the store.

It's been going strong for over a week now, so I felt it was time to spruce up the place a bit. I've replaced the normal reddit icon with this, added a specialized title, and made the little upvote/downvote arrows. As the weeks and months progress I'm sure I'll make more changes to the look of the place.

This was created mainly with two ovoid shapes. These are based on the Lowell Sphere (by Bruce Lowell), with a little modification (before the obvious ones) to that technique from myself.

To see what the original alien logo looks like, just go to the main reddit site.

Vote for this on LEGO Cuusoo! lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/8552

    Awesome... r/lego was kind of a disappointment to me.

    Nice job on the logo.

    I'm already in there. r/lego is really sad. :|

    Love the MOC!

    Sweet! Reddit is awesome, but since I'm not an AFOL I believe I shouldn't join.

    If you're a builder, go ahead. I don't think we age-check. ;)

    what's wrong with r/Lego? just curious.

    or is it a subreddit of r/Lego?

    Vote for this project on LEGO Cuusoo, perhaps it can get produced as a real LEGO set!

    Hey, I'm trying to set a debate on reddit here... Does this, or does this not use SNOT technique? I say yes, but the guy I'm arguing with says no, because the studs are showing. Thoughts, people?

  12. Pepa Quin 20 months ago | reply

    The Studs Not On Top technique merely means that pieces are placed in any direction aside from facing 'up'. This means that they are placed sideways, upside down, or really at any angle. This statue is certainly a good example of SNOT.
