  1. Streamline the voting process, especially for mobile users

    Three ideas to streamline voting, which really puts people off, especially on mobiles:


    • Remove the age page, or make it easier, like "Are you above 18? Y/N"

    • Do not require entry of a confirmation code to vote. This extra step really annoys people, slows down the process, and turns them away. It also makes it harder to vote using mobiles.

    • The site must be designed with mobile phones in mind, not laptops, as that is where most people use the internet now. Right now the back-and-forth confirmation is so clunky on a mobile, that people will abandon the process.

  2. Allow Star Ratings in statistics to be viewed over a specific period of time

    Hi! I'm Viv, AKA toastergrl, creator of the "Sonic Mania - Green Hill Zone" LEGO Ideas project. I previously suggested a statistics page to see how Product Ideas have been reacted to over time, which I'm very thankful the team has implemented.

    Recently, the Ideas team also added private star ratings, to allow feedback to be provided privately. This is an excellent idea, but I'm currently working on a major revision for my Product Idea which might make some of the previous ratings irrelevant.

    Would it be possible to look at your Star Ratings over a specific period of time?…

  3. I think you are too strict avoiding project with religious buildings

    I believe it's right to keep a prohibition against strong religious or political references, but at the same time I think that to include a church in an "architecture" project is a bit exaggerated especially if there aren't explicits references or symbols. Do you know that the "leaning tower" in Pisa is the bel tower of the cathedral? And that San Marco in Venezia is another cathedral? But you have inserted them in your models! So why can't I publish a model of Florence with the cathedral?

  4. Lego Comic as a format for a contest

    Every Lego magazine has some fun comics.... what about tapping into the creativeness of the community and let them have a go at making a comic (page(s))... with the prize that the comic gets published in a Lego magazine

  5. Make it easier to edit the profile

    I have tried editing my profile and customizing my avatar on LEGO Ideas, however your site is NOT letting me do so. I have tried looking on your FAQ's and other sites but in summation: all the information is WORTHLESS.
    So can you please make it easier to customize my LEGO Ideas avatar or tell me what I'm doing wrong and tell me how to customize it

  6. Keep Me Updated...

    I've just noticed that there are no options in the settings to notify one when a Saved Project has posted an update. I miss having this notification feature from both the standing of a project supporter and submitter and I believe having this setting option is important for member's projects for a variety of reasons. When a member makes a change or to add something to their project, you'll get feedback on it from a different point of view from a member who has already supported based on your first version than from a member who has seen all your…

  7. Easier Support of a Model

    Is it possible to make supporting easier, maybe just click on where it has the number of supporters of that project, the blue circley thing. I sometimes find that I don't support a project that I would normally just because it takes to much time to click on the project and view it's page.

  8. Other than themes, introduce categories by number of supporters

    Hi guys, the new themes categories seems a good idea. Maybe you might consider to have categories by number of supporters as well (500club, 1kclub, 3kclub, 5kclub). Projects gets a lot of supporters in the first 2/3 weeks, with the top5 under 100 supporters and with the staff's pick. Especially if they go in the trending page. After that the numbers of supporters decrease drastically. It could be a good idea to get more visibility to "older" projects. Now seems that either you reach 10k in few weeks or maybe never.
    I hope it will be a good feedback

  9. Let people delete excess updates

    I recently made an update that got duplicated, but I just needed one. I want to delete it, along with those that accidentally messed up on the updates...

  10. open crowdfunding for those models that reach 10k but do not get picked to become a real set

    There are many beautiful rejected 10k models that people would love to have. You recently released several models through the Brick Link coop. Why not do so for all the 10k models (those that do not have any license problems) so that more models would become available?
    It would also be another incentive to post models, because you would actually get to see your model being made after 2,5 years of hard work at designing and promoting.

  11. Make a person's username clickable in their support notification so you can follow them

    So when you get a comment on your project, it's easy to follow someone because their username is a link to their profile. If you just get told they've supported your project, you then have to search for them under Community to be able to see what else they've supported and to follow them. If their name was a link to their profile in the support notification, the need to search would be removed. Big time saver!

  12. Require a piece count

    Make it a requirement when post new projects that an approximate piece count be added to the listing so when someone supports the project and is asked to say how much they would pay, we have a better idea of what the cost of a set would be based on the number of pieces

  13. Add an "I don't support" option to projects, which then filters them out by default

    This would make it realistic for regular users to view all new projects. They look at every project once, and give it a thumbs up or down, then next time they visit they can see only the new projects, without their view being cluttered up with projects they already supported or decided they wouldn't.

  14. Hide The Number Of Supporters For Projects (Or At Least An Option To Hide The Number Of Project Supporters)

    This may sound weird to some people, but I think there should be an option to hide how many people support your projects. I believe people would choose to support more solely based on a project's merit or creative value instead of how many others are supporting it.

  15. Put Staff Picks on the top of the home page that day

    Currently not many people know when projects receive a staff pick, only the people who had saved the project. It would be awesome if they got put at the top of the home page that day (where JacobM366's activity poll is now).

  16. Create an Open Forum/Blog for Community Questions/Requests

    Within the LEGO Ideas Community, please add a forum for discussion, ideas, advice, and questions. This should be open to all members and moderated. LEGO Ideas staff may not have to be the only moderators. Volunteers could be screened and selected.

  17. Let the main image be a GIF file or similar (some kind of repeatable image sequence).

    I have repeated watched extremely creative and thought-filled and well-worked-out projects be completely ignored (and consequently, expire unsupported), simply because the main image does not "grab attention" well enough. I think if the main image could move, it would allow users to show more aspects and functions of their creations all at one glance. It would take a little skill to create them, but who knows, maybe Lego Ideas could have a tutorial for how to create GIF files, or better yet, maybe they could create an on-site GIF creator.

  20. Not only one Idea on the first page

    I think it would be good if not only an idea or ideas appear first on the Lego Ideas page but the succession changes.
