About

Classic-Space.com is a discussion site and community with resources centered around the LEGO theme of Space. In addition to forums, Classic-Space.com hosts Chris Giddens' Pre-Classic Space creations and an extensive gallery of space concept art for inspiration.

Although it isn't directly hosted on Classic-Space.com, the C-S home page also includes a link to the Moonbase standard -- an important and popular fan-created building standard.

History

Classic-Space.com was created by Jon Palmer. For a long while, its sole purpose was hosting the Moonbase Module site. In 2004, the Classic-Space Forums were added.

Controversies

In May 2007 a decision by the CSF management to ban (later revised to separate) clone and non-pure bricks in the forums led to widespread controversy both on the forum [1] and on the flickr group [2]. The subsequent activities and debates led to at least four people quitting the site, with two later returning.

Technical Information

Classic-Space.com is based on the open-source e107 Content Management System. It includes a news page, discussion forum, bug tracker and picture gallery, among other things.
