Community Update!

Hey there folks!

It's 2018 which means Emergency Bricks! has been around for 7 long years! In that time we've seen our ups and downs and grown our databases considerably thanks to community contributions from dedicated experts and novices alike. These contributions have been comprised of nearly 400 digital downloads, nearly 8,000 images and countless forum discussions sharing tips, tricks and techniques from all over the world. Finishing out 2018 and going into 2019 our goal is to further refine and enhance the user experience here at EB! with all of you in mind. To kick it off, we've updated our software to the latest versions for enhanced user experience as well as user safety. We now operate using an encrypted SSL certificate meaning the data you choose to share is secure. We've also boosted the RAM in our server to provide a faster experience with less load times and lag. Be on the lookout for brand new features soon too! Feel free to request any new features you think would benefit the community as well! We're all ears. 

Happy Building!

New Feedback Feature

We are excited to announce a new feature here on EB called "Feedback" for the community to use. Now this is not feedback regarding community posts or content, but feedback regarding transactions with other members of the community, such as the purchasing/ trading/ selling of models amongst members.

We have always provided the Buy/ Sell/ Trade forum, but if you are new to the community it could be a bit scary entering into a deal with someone you know nothing about. 

With our new Feedback system, users can rate their experiences and leave comments about the transactions, building up a buyer/seller reputation amongst members to get an idea of who are Grade A buyers and sellers, and who the flakes you should probably avoid are.
To add feedback you'll need the following info:
  Name of who you are rating. Rating you are giving the transaction. (Negative, Neutral, Positive, etc.) Your position in the transaction. (Buyer, Seller, Trading) Comment(s) about the experience. And optionally, if there is a forum topic such as a for sale listing, simply type the title of the topic to link it to your review and it will autocomplete in the form.

Download Database Update

Hello,

As you probably are already aware, we suffered some technical difficulties over the past couple weeks resulting in the loss of some data from our servers. We, fortunately, were able to restore just about everything, but in the process discovered that although all of our files were back in place, they had become corrupted somehow in the restoration. 

There is a silver lining however, as we have an older backup that contains working versions of most, if not all, of the 300-400 submissions to our download database.  The biggest challenge will be going through each one, one item at a time, reuploading the files until everything is restored. We ask, and appreciate, your patience as we work to get this done as quickly as we can. 

The downloads database is once again stable, and while you wait we encourage everyone to continue to share and contribute their creations for the world to see and continue to build EB into the largest one-stop-shop for all of your LEGO Police, Fire & EMS resources.

Thank you,
Dakota C.
