Forum Topic URL

Each MOC Blog Post should have a corresponding topic in the LEGO Pirates Forum – if it does not, set a  Source URL in the second input field.

For imported topics the Topic URL will often be set automatically.

If not, you will need to manually copy and paste the URL into the Eurobricks Topic URL Input field.

When extracting the URL, ensure it links to the first post, not one of the replies.

To do so, delete the parameters from the URL – the parameters are everything after the final forward slash.

For example:
https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/186997-moc-captain-redbeard-faces-budget-cuts/&do=findComment&comment=3437670

Becomes:
https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/186997-moc-captain-redbeard-faces-budget-cuts/

So the following is deleted: &do=findComment&comment=3437670


Source URL

The Source URL is the address of the primary webpage which you found photos and information about the MOC you’re blogging.

This could be a Social Media platform like Instagram or Flickr, or it could be a website like The Brothers Brick.

You may have sourced content from multiple websites, so select the website which is most prominent.

Example 1: Flickr
https://www.flickr.com/photos/117866292@N02/49696445758/

Example 2: Instagram
https://www.instagram.com/p/CcSDEL0ufGp/

Example 3: The Brothers Brick
https://www.brothers-brick.com/2022/04/09/eyes-right-for-an-interesting-villa-build/

Important!

  • You may set a Eurobricks Topic URL and a Source URL if both are available.
  • DO NOT set the Eurobricks Topic URL as the Source URL.
  • DO NOT use non-Eurobricks URLs as the Eurobricks Topic URL.

LEGO Ideas Project URL

If a MOC which has been submitted to LEGO Ideas, include the Project URL.

A typical LEGO Ideas Project URL will look like:

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/984edd06-6718-4053-bcfe-2ea38bdc259c

Again, ensure you’re linking to the main tab by deleting the parameters from the URL.

For example:
https://ideas.lego.com/projects/984edd06-6718-4053-bcfe-2ea38bdc259c/comments_tab#content_nav_tabs

Becomes:
https://ideas.lego.com/projects/984edd06-6718-4053-bcfe-2ea38bdc259c/

So the following is deleted: comments_tab#content_nav_tabs


Building Instructions

If the MOC builder has made building instructions available, copy and paste the URL to webpage hosting building instructions.

Building instructions will be usually digitally available on websites like ReBrickable or the BrickLink Designer Program, however, occasionally they will be hosted on the builder’s own website.
