When & where did you find out about BrickPicker?

Recommended Posts

When I first got on BP three and a half months ago, stephen_rockefeller only had seven hundred some posts, and most of the people who post a lot now weren't even on the site. Whn did the forum activity increase so much?

You answered you own question man! In the the last three months this site has seen incredible growth. A lot of it can be attributed to the USA Today article, after the article was published in December many people became curious as to what we are all about. Another reason is the quality work and dedication Jeff and Ed put into this site. Also knowledge that members bring to the forums proves to be an invaluable tool in this investing game!!

Blackjacks thread made me wonder how everyone found out about BP, many found it after the USA Today article in December. I honestly cant remember exactly how I came across it but I think it was one day around April 2012 when I was googling the 10188 trying to find out more info about it. *EDIT I'm an idiot.......it couldn't have been April if I joined in August.

Someone I know mentioned a site called brickfolio one day, so I just Googled it one day, and here I am. I didn't really get on the forums until about a month after I got on the site though.

IrishGuy66 mentioned something called brickfolio, and when I Googled it, found BP! I told him about how awesome it was that night, and he'd never heard of it. I still have no idea where he got the name 'brickfolio'. :)

I was googling and trying to find a site just like this. In years past i had tried the same thing, but this site was not up yet. I was absolutely ecstatic once i came across BP!

It think I remember seeing an ad for Brickpicker from some Lego related website but I can't quite place which one it was. Maybe Brickset or TheBrickBlogger? I don't really know; it was just one of those random ads that is shown on the main page. It is weird thinking on it because I don't seem to see those ads for Brickpicker anymore anywhere.

More and more people are becoming exposed to other investors/collectors..this site is a great outlet to discuss, debate and speculate with fellow enthusiasts. This pattern of more active users on the forums is likely just going to keep getting bigger, which is good!

It may seem strange but I still remember the very first thread I created right after I joined. In Memory of Daniel Jezek Hell, Stephen, you were the very first one to reply to that thread, too! No wonder we got along just fine. Ha ha. :)

Oh wait a minute. No the very absolute first thread I started was this one. Stargate in Lego I had to do a check to be sure. Turns out the other one I listed was actually the second one I started. Whoops.

Man.... Things were a lot slower and quieter back then. Heh heh.

Several of my BrickLink forum threads were deleted when I tried to link to Amazon deals. I was told that those sorts of posts weren't allowed, and that I should go to Brickpicker. So I did!

Brickshow brought me here. They vetted for this website on more than one occasion.

Same here. It was a video about the top ten investments of the month or something like that. I've been watching their reviews for years, but for some reason I never really watched any other videos they posted. I joined the same day I watched the video.

Ed & Jeff were interviewed on the Beyond the Brick podcast. Unfortunately this podcast has since ended. No more Lego podcasts left. :(. Not audio ones anyway.
