A Review of 2011

Note: Not all users have been credited in this blog and not all users have a comment from me, I'll try my best over the next few days to write comments for as many users as possible, it's taken me over 3 hours of non-stop typing to type this.

This year we have had our ups and downs with the community etc… However we have achieved so much this year. For example we now have over 18,000 articles! We are becoming a more active wiki by the month as new users join us and help us in improving Brickipedia.

My background

When I joined Brickipedia back in July 2010 I never knew I would get this far. In the space of one and a half years I have become a Patroller, a Rollback an Administrator and now, a Bureaucrat. I never thought that I would get over 2-3 thousand edits in my entire time at Brickipeida, but I have. I have made a total of over 10,000 edits here at Brickipedia! But I've benefited so much from Brickipedia, not only have I learnt more about LEGO, but I've learnt new skills such as HTML, CSS, JS and Wiki mark-up coding!

Anyway, enough about me, more about the community.

Brickipedian of the Month

First of all I would like to give my thanks to those who were Brickipedian of the Month this year. They were:

Comments as a whole

"This year was probably the biggest loss for Bricki yet. Last year we lost some great users like LegOtaku but this year we lost a lot of kind, friendly, helpful and overall fantastic editors. I've been semi-active lately here, but during my time here I've seen a lot of hard-working commitment to this site. I met some great users this year such as CGCJ and Prisinorzero and many more, saw some awesome friends get renames (Nerf and King -_-) and finally got to know some users around here (Cligra, SKP and others). This goes out to all the users here, thanks for being friendly and hard-working. It's been a pleasure working with you. Now if I could get at least one or two mentions that'd be great! :)"

"This year was eventful, in the plainest of terms. Some users showed their true colors, some users earned their metal. There was disgrace, and then there was prestige. We've had our lowest days, and we've had our highest days. Many of us had disagreements early in the year, but it cooled down, and we knew some from of peace. Despite the low points, Brickipedia still runs as it should. The information is up to date, the new users are welcomed by those of us who remain from last year, and the wiki continues to grow. I'm very happy that I got to be a part of this amazing wiki. We all love LEGOs, and we can do anything if we set our mind to it."

"One of the best years in this wiki's history since the golden age..."

"The Good
  • Uh, I'll get back to you.

The Bad

  • Massive community explosion
  • Capitalizing the letter M. Muy importante, I know.
  • Scores of people "leaving" (actually dropping 9-paragraph rants to try to gain compassion, then becoming "semi-active")
  • Chat and all its nastiness
  • Me!
  • This "Best Wikis of 2011" crap (actually "Most Socking Wikis of 2011")"

"Content-wise, everything has been on the up. I'll leave it at that."
CJC95
"2011 has been a good year. We have gained many more articles, and some great users. We passed 18000 articles this year. Some great users that signed up this year include Francesco Mondada, Zaersk, and Mr. Minifigure. We've had a large increase in the number of bots; and I think that's great. More bots to do work means that users are freed up to do work that bots can't do, like creating complex articles. [...] obviously there are many other great users, and without them the wiki would not be what it is today. I just don't have time to say thankyou to all this personally though, so here is one big thankyou:

Thankyou for your great work on Brickipedia

And now, roll on 2012"

Captain Jag
"Wow, this year has been incredibly productive for Bricki. We've made a few mistakes here and there, and have lost a few people, but this year flew by so quickly. We did an incredible job in becoming the largest toy wiki and one of the best communities out there (No matter what any vote says). I just want to thank everyone, admins and users alike, for all your awesome work in editing, categorizing, voicing your opinions, and hanging in there with the wiki. Even those users who can't read this, I'd like to thank just for contributing to the wiki (whether an inactive admin or just an anon). This year has seen a lot of success, here's to next year being even better!"

"This year has been like the plot of a bad brick-film drama. But thankfully, ratings are up! Seriously, think about it :P"
Berrybrick
"Good half year for me, gained some great users including CP, Mr.M, Many bots and a few faves for me. I have become good friends with Zero, Power Jim, CJC's sarcasim, SKP and Cliggers."
Crazed Penguin
"Well, 2011 has been quite a time. It has had its ins and outs, but all in all I think it has managed us well. Here at Brickipedia we've lost members and gained members and made it through tough times. We still manage to keep the title of the best LEGO wiki out there."
1999bug
"A great first year on Brickipedia, many friends and many edits. Although not as many edits as some of you. Like to thank all Admins and user like: Crazed Penguin, Br1ck, Zero, CGCJ, Darth H, Bug, Cpt. Jag, Mr.Minifigure, Superspy, Cligra, Grand Editor, KoN, AwesomeKnight, and sooooooo many more. Thanks guys and Happy New Year (that's also my birthday, seriously :D)!"

"Good year but some people moan too much"

Nighthawk leader

"The #1 Brickipedian! When I first joined Brickipedia I first saw you as a leader and the man in charge and I didn’t talk to you much. It was only after a while that we started to talk more often and got know each other better. After I joined the admin team, I felt more involved and I felt I could always turn to you for help. Thank you. :) A true asset to Brickipedia!"
SKP4472

NHL is often forgotten about now, after five years of non-stop service to Brickipedia. He was the one along with another user who I've forgotten (sorry :( ) who saved this Wiki and made it stand on its legs. Without them, Brickipedia would not be the Wiki it is today.

"As always, thankyou for your great work. And FIVE YEARS!"

"Well, for my 1st year, I'm kinda Smiling/Frowning on the inside, good place, And sometimes had it's bad moments."
SilverLego
"Well, Brickipedia nearly gave me two heart attacks this year, the first when I lost 75 consecutive days, and the second when I lost 150 consecutive days. I'm still recovering from the last one. (I think that means it's become an obsession.)  :P (P.S. please, please PLEASE re-enable chat!)"
