Greg

Question: is there a way we could implement an age verification feature for users so that greg could use this site to interact with us? he's stated on the LMBs that LEGO's social media policy prohibits interacting with minors online, but i don't think an age verification feature would be very difficult - right? also, isn't bs01 a lego partner site or something?

another thought on that, i guess we wouldn't want a ton of new users signing up on here just to talk to greg, and then potentially mucking up the wiki if they don't know the rules, etc. so another idea i had is we could set up a dedicated page for it or something - maybe on greg's theoretical talk page or something, idk.

It's been discussed before, and it's not in LEGO's purview to allow. -- Dorek Talk External Image 06:01, 6 February 2017 (CET)
what do you mean? like it's not their job to implement a system on our site? Intelligence4 (talk) 17:31, 6 February 2017 (CET)
We could implement a 13-only rule, but LEGO still wouldn't allow it. It's more complicated than just the age thing, and we don't want to create an age barrier for no reason. -- Dorek Talk External Image 21:37, 18 February 2017 (CET)
But why wouldn't Lego allow it? ~OnionShark 11:03, 19 February 2017 (CET)
Part of it is the legality of having adults talk to children, and the inherent liabilities. Other things are probably just related to corporate policy. -- Dorek Talk External Image 01:04, 20 February 2017 (CET)

GregCitation

" Can we make/create the Template:GregCitation without 6 or 8 votes on the AfC? It seems pretty necessary as the Book/Comic/Media/Online Citations were. -- SurelNuva (Talk) 15:24, 26 February 2017 (CET)

I suppose we could make it, but if we do we'll likely overhaul it later. Hopefully in the future we'll have a searchable Greg quote database where you can link to quotes directly. I'll have to figure out how to best do that though. In the meantime, maybe ask Dorek? -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 19:04, 26 February 2017 (CET) "

If you wanna make a database of all the GregF quotes, then we'll have plenty of time to keep using GregCitation. I mean, I made an estimation and there seem to be 60,200~ posts in the OGTs, and that's not counting the two Ask Greg and CwGF. And really, why go through making such a long database when someone can simply copy&paste the date of a quote on the search bar for the OGTs transcripts and find the quote immediately? ~OnionShark 23:00, 26 February 2017 (CET)
