  1. Restrict the voting process, Introduction of voting limits

    In the first and second review period, an incredible number of projects made it into the review.
    The reason for this is an unlimited possibility of voting. Some accounts shows more than 2.000 votes per year.To avoid this:


    • Limit the number of votes to 150 per year or 50 review period. (max 300/year or 100/period)

    • Re-introduction of the poll before supporting a project.

  2. Allow editing an entry you have posted for say 12hrs.

    The images I posted look rough on my recent Dream Holiday entry "Cow Dreams", but they were fine before I uploaded them. I'd like to try uploading again but I don't have that option. Once they have been approved that's fair enough and I understand I have to accept it.

  3. Removing and editing the sequence of activities, contests and product ideas entries on user's page

    Well the header says it all. Sometimes you're not satisfied with your entry anymore and you'd like to remove it or you just want to show your better submissions higher than others.

    Also, since activities entries are shown in squares it almost always cuts of most of the picture and it just look bad (is there a way to make them appear just like a regular contests/product ideas?). Furthermore since I took part in voting for the Afols book thing it now shows it on my page for some reason - it's weird and I'd like to remove it. I…

  4. Make unsuccessful 10,000 vote ideas that aren't made into sets, instructions available in Bricklinks studio.

    There have been many good ideas builds that have gone through the process of reaching 10,000 votes only to be curtailed at the last hurdle.
    Now that you own Bricklink, would it be possible for the unsuccessful builds to be made available as do it yourself builds in Studio so any person that may have voted and would still like to build the unsuccessful idea can use the platform to do so?

  5. A support button on each submission on the scroll screen

    Sometimes I see something I know I want to support just from the first photo. At the moment I have to go into the project to get to the support button. I think it would help projects get support faster if you could hit a support button on the scroll screen. This may lead to a higher turnover in popular ratings as well. Thank you for taking the time to read my suggestion.

  6. An idea to change the order of projects on the homepage every week. To give every project a fair chance.

    My suggestion is to change the order of the projects on the homepage every week. Randomly. Perhaps it is fair to do this with the ideas that have obtained 100 supporters. Those that are on top get so many votes within a very short time. I think that they will now also reach 10K within weeks. If you would change it weekly or within two weeks ... maybe it helps to decrease the amount of 10K projects in a short time.

    I also get the impression that only projects that have been built digitally get the most votes. Other projects…

  8. Do a yearly second chance review

    Every year, as “Christmas gift” to the community, the board could re-evaluate all the product ideas that were not given the green light for production during the year’s review periods. Similar to the 10th anniversary contest, but on an annual basis. (The special anniversary reviews could still happen by reaching farther back into your archives.) Lots of times, let’s be honest, reviews can sometimes flop. This can allow some of the “best” projects of the year to get a second chance! I’d be quite a bit of work, but I’m sure the community will appreciate it!

  9. Need to press "support" second time when signing up after pressing it first time

    When a new member wants to support an idea and presses the "support" button he then needs to sign up or use he's google / facebook account. Once he's logged in most of them think that they have voted and just leave. They don't even see that a support button is still active since they were redirected to a main page.
    Conclusion: please count the votes from members who signed up for the first time after pressing a "support" button on a certain idea without a need to press it again (new members just don't get it)

  10. Send a notification when someone you followed has a new Product Idea approved.

    It would be nice to get a notification when someone you follow posts a new product idea. Right now I don't see the point of following anybody. If I want to see if brickybrick has submitted a new idea, I have to scroll to the very bottom of my follower list to find his profile, or look through hundreds of recently submitted ideas. This notification would change that by instantly letting you know that "Brickybrick has submitted a new idea: Modular Skyscraper! Click to view."

  11. Add the option to link your Bricklink account in your profile

    A user's page already has places to put links to one's youtube, flickr, et cetera. I think Bricklink, though not as popular as those other websites, would be a good addition to this because its features are specifically made to be able to showcase Lego MOCs in great detail. It could also be a good way to promote the website.

  12. Collaborations

    On Lego ideas, you should be able to collaborate on an idea together, basically, with permission from both designers, you put two ideas into one.

  13. Pick one of your Project images as your banner

    Could be a cover image or an additional image. (Update images not allowed). These would already be approved during the submition of a project so you would not have to worry about people misusing this feature.

  14. Additional filter & view options

    Please add the following quality of life improvements:

    1) filter to show only the NEW ideas since my last visit.

    2) instead of the current 0 or 1000 as smallest supported filter options, allow us to filter in numbers between. Example by the 50 or 100 / 200 supporters and so on.

    3) filter and icon that shows the ideas you are already supporting

  15. Improved Visibility and UI on Homepage

    It’s currently too difficult to find or discover things of a particular interest on the IDEAS website. Along with better use of filters, I recommend a different homepage UI of stacked containers with horizontal scrolling, similar to what you see in most media layouts (ie Netflix) instead of the endless, seemingly random vertical scroll and buried navigational options. It’s perfectly fine to have staff picks and most popular at the top (or listed under a Contests section) because you want people to have a good first impression of the website and IDEAS platform, but then just under that box there…

  16. Contest entries should be ordered by newest by default

    As stated in the title, old but much commented entries get on top for new visitors, however they are not necessarily the ones worth checking, yet they get even more and more popular just because they are on top, therefore they receive new comments more easily. Pretty self escalating... And self explanatory. :)

  17. Make it where you can see what notifications are “new” and “old” again

    Recently LEGO seems to have taken off the “new” and “old” notifications. This used to really helpful because I could see new notifications without having to remember what the old ones were. Now I can’t figure out which notifications are new and which notifications are old, which means I might miss a notification and not notice it ‘till days later.

  18. Highlight those who have achieved 1000 votes, not just 10000

    In the project comments tab, comment writers who have achieved 10000 votes are highlighted. However, achieving support is as much about selecting the right subject for the model and marketing it as it is about building a great model. The best model of an obscure item rarely achieves more than 1000 votes.
    Therefore, highlight also those who have achieved 1000 votes because they have useful experience similar to those who have achieved 10000 votes. Use a different colour to differentiate the two but give more recognition to the experience of 1000-vote achievers.

  19. Separate Product Ideas from Contest Entries in profile page.

    Often I enter in other builders' profiles to check their builds. Would be great to have Product Ideas right away on top, not mixed with contest entries and activities. The filter doesn't help much in that way.
    Otherwise you could let the builder to personalize his own page.

  20. Make a new badge - Laurel Wreath - for those who have won more than twice.

    It is quite frustrating to see that someone has won the grand prize 5 times!
    It's hard for those of us who've never even come close, and if they've already won more than twice, they have enough.
    Instead of prizes, could they get a badge instead of a prize? Please?
    They then have arguably the most rare badge which is just as good, and it gives other people at least a chance.
    Thanks!
