Q: How does one become a LEGO brand ambassador?

A: We currently do not have a formal program for LEGO brand ambassadors. In the past, the LEGO Ambassador Program also included prominent fans from the mature LEGO fan community and they functioned as LEGO brand ambassadors. With the 2014 update of the program and switch to being the LEGO Ambassador Network instead of LEGO Ambassador Program, the focus moved to the ambassadors being representatives for their recognized communities rather than brand ambassadors.

Q: What is LEGO Ideas?

A: LEGO® Ideas is a platform that invites you to submit new, original, and creative ideas in the form of a “Project” that others vote on and the LEGO Group considers as potential for a new brick-based LEGO set. Since its merger with LEGO Rebrick, LEGO Ideas now also host challenges and contests. You can learn more at LEGO Ideas

Q: What is a LUG?
A: LUG means LEGO User Group or LEGO Users Group, depending on who and where you ask. The term originates deeply in the AFOL (Adult Fan Of LEGO) community and all the way back to when LUGNET (
www.LUGNET.com or the newer version at www.LUGNET.biz) was the core of all AFOL activity online. As for definitions on a LUG, we suggest reading this LUGNET topic from February 2001 (LINK)

Q: Does the LEGO Group support some fan driven events differently than others, and if so, why?

A: Yes, we know there are thousands of fan-driven events and activities every year and we cannot support or attend all of them. We do want to meet as many of you as possible, so through the Hub Event Support Program we’re offering additional support to a few select events that function as hubs for the community in their region – currently we offer this added support to the Skærbæk Fan Weekend (Denmark, September), Paredes de Coura Fan Weekend (Portugal, June) and Kobe Fan Weekend (Japan, June). We guarantee a minimum of one Community Manager at these events but always aim to prioritize them, in hopes that we have as many as possible there from the LEGO Community Team.
