  • Sorry, I accidentally left put the 't' when making the page title, and I was wondering if you could fix the typo. Thanks. This film may not be as notable as some others, but it did have a large following, and I made it to have an example of one of Mackenzie's films, since he does have a very long filmograpy, and he was an influential brickfilmer when it came to early superhero brickfilms of the 2000s.

  • Can you add these brick films to the wiki please? And also for the first one add the NSFW warning

  • How is this not part of the series? It's listed as the last episode before Out of Time on the Out of Time page, and it was mentioned as being the first officila installment on the dynamic duos page.

    • I thought it was substantial enough to list as preceding Out of Time on its page, but I know Buxton considers Out of Time to be his first real film, so when making a delineation between main films and other releases, I thought it better fit in other. Similar to how I myself don't consider the film that was called Benny n' Lee episode 1 to be an official installment, so list it in the other section on the Benny n' Lee page.

  • Both films mainly focus on two characters, and both films have a more comedic tone. The Rick and Steve series is even mentioned on the dynamic duos page as a dynamic duo series. Please tell me, why do you keep taking both this and Weed Cops out of the dynamic duos category? I didn't mean to do anything wrong, but as far as I could tell both should be considered as dynamic duos.

    • The dynamic duo page says "Though there are some earlier examples of recurring duos in brickfilming such as Biff and Mario and Rick and Steve, the series that laid the foundation for the dynamic duo as a genre was Steve and Dave by Nate Burr." This marks a separation between a duo and a "dynamic duo" series, and means to imply that Rick and Steve is not a dynamic duo series (I am debating whether or not to take Biff and Mario out, as it is more borderline). Dynamic duo is more of a genre than a descriptor. Really, the best way to describe it is "like Steve and Dave", because that is where all the hallmarks originated. A lot of talking and sitting on couches; little in the way of major plot points. It's hard to explain, but it has been recognised as such within the community for well over a decade. Weed Cops may have two guys, but it is nothing like Steve and Dave. I would argue that the Unholy Trio better fits in to be described as a dynamic duo series, despite starring a trio.

    • Ok, thanks for the clarification. Should we make duo subcategories, such as buddy cop films?

  • So, I created a page for the 2009 brickfilm, LEGO Terminator, and I have files of both parts to the film, but I don't know how to give them to you to turn into brickfilm archives. Help?

    • I'm really not sure about these films you have been making pages on... They seem pretty random, and I don't see what is noteworthy about them. Some of them may have large viewcounts, but basically anything can with the right keywords and a bit of luck, especially in the old days of YouTube.

    • Ok, I'm sorry. I was looking for old, pre-2010 brickfilms that seemed noteworthy.

  • Hey Silleypenta, I wanted to ask a questiom. I am familiar with the policies about making pages for one's own films, and I also know that the main reason people passed the policy was out of fear that after one made pages for their films, they would leave the wiki and not come back. Well, I have been a faithful editor of this wiki for 2 years now, and I was wondering if I could have your permission to make some pages about some of my films, seeing as I edit this wiki pretty regularly, and I could also use some of the exposure. I will still stick around and edit other pages if I am allowed to make pages for my own films, and I won't leave, at least not for a while. Anyway, I know you're the admin, and I know you've made pages for your films, but I know that you are a pretty notable brickfilmer, and I am not as notable. Anyway, I just wanted to ask if it would be ok for me to make pages about some of my films. Thanks, and have a great day.

    • I have only made pages on my own films when they meet some objective criteria I have used to judge page-worthiness of other films, such as winning a notable contest or award

        Loading editor
    • So, what criteria do you use, aside from wether or not the film(s) have won a contest? Also, does this mean I'm not allowed?

  • It was the first brickfilm ever, everyone who is a brickfilmer knows about it, and lo of people discuss it and reference it in their films. How is it not a cult brickfilm?

      Loading editor
    • Most of those are reasons as to why it is not. Wikipedia defines it as "A cult film, also commonly referred to as a cult classic, is a film with a cult following, obscure or unpopular with mainstream audiences, and often revolutionary or ironically enjoyed." A brickfilm that is an extremely well known all-time classic as recognized by all people cannot be a cult brickfilm. It can't be a cult classic if it is a regular classic.

  • So, I've read the Dynamic Duos page, and understand what criteria a brickfilm must meet to be considered a 'dynamic duo' film, and I put The Cleaners and Weed Cops in the Dynamic Duos category, seeing as both films center around two protagonists. But my edits on both have been reverted, and I've redone the edits, and I just wanted your opinion. Thanks

  • You know the brickfilms that aren't suitable for younger audiences and that have the 'viewer discretion' banner? I'm gonna make a category for all of these. 

      Loading editor
  • Out of curiosity, what are the criteria used to judge which brickfilms deserve pages?

      Loading editor
    • To be perfectly honest, it basically comes down to me just knowing. It would be impossible to lay out a formal set of criteria that must be met. Some things mean automatically deserving a page, such as winning a major contest or award (i.e. BFG awards Best Film). Other than that, it just comes down to a judgement call based on a film's influence or standing within a community, or something.
