From time to time, we have the opportunity to add new faces to our stable of contributors. We try to bring on people who have a unique perspective and a good eye for a well-turned LEGO creation.
The latest member of our staff fits that description to a tee.
Please welcome Ace Kim!
Ace is best known for his former position at the helm of From Bricks to Bothans, the premier site for fans of all things LEGO, Star Wars, or both. In an unprecedented move, the Brothers Brick has purchased all rights to FBTB and will be running it as a sister site, under the TBB banner. A variety of personal issues had led Ace to rethink his desire to continue running a fansite. He was looking for a place to air his considerable opinions and, fortunately for us, we were able to work out a deal with him.
We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship between Ace and The Brothers Brick. For those people who are worried about the changes that will take place on FBTB, fear not. It will be a wild ride!
Welcome to the team Ace, I look forward to working with you!
I wish I could edit. To clarify my sigh, I’m excited to see Ace continue contributing to *any* site, just sorry for my (and other admins’) lack of participation with FBTB and the result that’s had on our future.
TBB-I’ve been reading this blog for 2 years now. And I say this is the worst thing ever. You did a similar thing last year.
Concur with Destro, this is a bit obvious ;-)
Strange, because the story Ace posted on the front page of the FBTB site says something different. I quote Ace: “I’m shutting down the forums. All forums and topics will be locked and preserved for posterity. I’ll leave the contest thread and one new forum open with this farewell message so you can post your thoughts and reactions and any questions. The chat room will eventually go away as well, just not sure when.”
If you try pulling something like this, at least try and set it up well…
Anyhow, FBTB stopped being relevant or even fun when their team of ‘moderators’ (and I use the term loosely) turned out to be more interested in themselves, their in-jokes and their witty sarcastic responses than in keeping together a community.
Uhh… April Fools??
Yes, for the record, April Fool’s. :-D
