    2019 Update

    I will look into a dark mode option, I think that is something that can be done rather easily. I will also ponder some ideas for holiday themes again in the near future. Thanks for the feedback!

    2019 Update

    Hey folks, I hope this message finds you well. I've been using a more hands-off approach and letting this community sort of steer itself without much guidance lately and I'm happy to see that, overall, it seems to be working. In recent years, Facebook groups and social media has reduced the frequency of forum visits by users as a whole, and that is true here as well. That being said, I still strongly feel there is something to be said for a dedicated platform that keeps things shared and easily accessible all in one place for niche communities like ours. Despite the slumps, we maintain an active user base and so long as that is the case I will continue to support you guys. Which brings me to the point of this posting. It has been quite some time since the last site overhaul/ update, and I am seeking suggestions for anything you folks would like to see altered around here. The forum structure hasn't changed much, are there any forums you'd like to have added? Are there forums you think we should cut? How are the galleries serving you? How about clubs? Do you like the current site design or would you rather something else with different colors? Please share your feedback and wish list, though I can't promise I can make everyone happy, I will do my best to implement improvements to enhance the experience here as much as I can. Thanks guys, hope you find yourselves having a nice summer.

    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! - Dakota

    Well since no entries have been submitted yet, and we typically open voting by this date, we may have to wait another year or do something over the summer. We'll see if entries are made over the next week or so.

    Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
  10. It's been a productive day. All downloads restored! And EB Groups are restored. Some misc topics and posts throughout the site may be missing/broken, but that issue is minor considering everything that had to be done to restore what we were able to :) Enjoy

  11. 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. Check it out now: http://emergencybricks.com/index.php?/feedback/

      Boy I'm hold. Had an acct for over half that time now.

  14. 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.
  15. @Sven give it a try now

  17. FYI to Staff: The staff forums have been expanded and moved to the bottom of the forums. :)

  18. Welcome to our newest staff member, Matt, who will be assisting in the moderation of EB. 

  19. You were unable to reply to the staff application topic due to a permission mismatch. You should be able to now. Or if anyone prefers, they can also PM applications as well.

  20. To create status updates. Click the "+ Create" text in the top right of the forums and choose to add a new status!

  21. I just wanted to take a moment to thank two of our staff members here, Dustin & Bruce, for their assistance with Emergency Bricks. It is almost always Dustin making sure that your submitted LDD files are approved for public posting within a timely manner, and when it's not him it's Bruce. Thanks guys.

      I'll second that :)

    3. Dustin


      No problem. I want to apologize for not being as active other than approving LDD files but I do peruse the site 2 or 3 times a day but the site seems to run itself since we have gotten rid of the trouble makers.

    4. Dakota


      Yup, it's not as active these days but it has grown into a decent little community.

  22. Didn't know BURN was available to watch on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/560584

      I haven't used Netflix since they split up DVD by mail and streaming. Not worth it for me.

      Is it just the cramped size that makes it suck?

    4. Dakota


      For one I hate how they look, they look like wheelchair vans to me.

      But in this case it was just everything about the interior, the cot positioning, the cramped work area, the lack of storage. They definitely shouldn't be used as ALS units if you ask me
