Welcome to the refreshed LEGO Ideas!
Over the last months, the team has worked towards giving LEGO Ideas a brand new look focused on simplifying, modernizing and improving the visual experience and consistency across the site.
As we have added new experiences and functionality over the years, we came to the realisation that this was not done in the most consistent way and needed an overhaul to get it all aligned.
During this time, we also took the opportunity to make minor tweaks in various places including:
- Moving the Blog into the top navigation and subsequently moving Community into the Explore tab
- Moved from a 4 column design in Explore/Search to place focus on the individual design. Focus on the design submitted is further enhanced by a reduction of the supporter counter.
- Adding a "Supporting" flag on all Product Ideas you have already supported
- Moved your "Followers" and "Following" in the profile tab to the left side of the profile page, making the central part all about the content you submit
- And more...
In order to maintain a clean and consistent look across the site, main images of submissions will no longer be allowed to contain any text or titles, unless otherwise specified.
The only exception is text that is a part of stickers/prints on elements that are explicitly a part of the LEGO model submitted. Text/titles placed on LEGO elements so as to bypass this will not be allowed.
To allow for a brief transition period, we'll first start moderating based on this new rule from Monday the 22nd of February, 2021. Meaning any submissions submitted after midnight Danish time on Sunday the 21st February will not be allowed to have any text in the main image as indicated.
Submissions that already contain text in their main images or are submitted before the 22nd February are not affected by this rule.
Let us know what you think!
We look forward to hearing what you think about the new look.
If you do come across any issues, which can range from minor graphic details to functionality issues, please do drop a comment below.
