The LEGO Message Boards are an official forum on LEGO.com, in which fans may discuss LEGO-related topics online. Since the forum is intended to be safe for children, all posts are reviewed by moderators before becoming public. Users must have a LEGO ID to be able to post. On November 2, 2012, the Message Boards were updated with new features such as new ranks, badges, and users' separate and individual profiles.

Pre-Update Ranks

Higher ranks could be achieved by posting more. Starting at 1 post needed, the numbers would approximately double every rank you go up. The following is a list of the old ranks:

Name Requirements Image Notes
Apprentice 0 posts Apprentice Automatically earned once one joined, but users were not visible to others until they had one post.
Journeyman 48 posts Journeyman
Initiate 95 posts Initiate
JuniorBuilder 192 posts JuniorBuilder
MasterBuilder 384 posts MasterBuilder
Craftsman 754 posts Craftsman
Artisan 1,505 posts Artisan
Inventor 3,009 posts Inventor
Old Timer 6,017 posts Old Timer
Maniac 12,032 posts Maniac
Legend 24,064 posts Legend Only 12 users made it to the Legend rank.

After the 2012 update, the old ranks were replaced by new ranks. They are claimed to be achieved by quality, not quantity. The only known ranks so far are Caveman, Pharaoh, Spartan Warrior, Gladiator, Roman Soldier, Minotaur, Viking, Samurai Warrior, Knight, Highland Battler, Forestman, Ninja, Aztec Warrior, Conquistador, Jester, Alien, Bandit, Cowboy, Deceive, Pirate, Hippie, Musketeer, Pilot, Spaceman, Rapper, and Royal Guard.

Stud Ranking

On the old LEGO Message Boards, there were eight studs above the person’s avatar’s head. Some were yellow, and some were white. The yellow ones were the ones that the poster had obtained, and the white ones were the ones they didn't have. Users gained one of these for having so many posts. What made these different from the ranks is that the amount of posts users needed went up as more people gain more posts. (For example, the first person ever to post would be one of the top 10, and therefore have eight studs) Therefore, you got a stud for being in the top so many posters.

Notes

  • The Message Boards were updated in 2005 and were supposed to be updated again in 2011 along with the rest of the LEGO.com website, however, they were not updated until November 2, 2012.
  • Before 2001, Moderators were trained to view the messages submitted to the Message Boards. In 2011, they trained a new group of moderators and since then, moderation has been much faster.
  • Charge was seen on the front page in his Deep Freeze outfit. Today, there is no "greeting page" and the only minifigures seen are generic ones.
  • All the ranks that currently exist are based on a minifigure from Minifigures (theme)
