LEGO Ideas will be offline May 30 and 31st for a Software Upgrade

On May 30th at 7:00am Eastern US Time (EST), LEGO Ideas will go offline for a scheduled upgrade. We expect to be offline for 24 hours and back online the morning of May 31st. This scheduled maintenance takes longer than usual because we’re upgrading our entire software platform to a new version. We’re migrating all of the site data (including your projects, supports, comments, and profiles) to new servers … including about 65 million unique events and actions since we launched the old LEGO CUUSOO site in 2008!

Most of this upgrade is behind the scenes. It’s like we’re putting a stronger foundation under our building, so we can build higher in the future. The most noticeable change is that all project URLs will change from a few numbers to a longer unique identifier. Don't worry though, any links to the old project URLs will redirect to the new ones. Other changes will be small, for example headers on the Guidelines page will look slightly different, and some links and buttons may move slightly. Overall, LEGO Ideas will continue to work as it always has. We’ll share more about future updates to Ideas when we’re ready.

Our team is looking forward to the new platform capabilities behind the scenes, and to building a better LEGO Ideas experience going forward.
