Winners and results of the 2017 Brick Hello survey and feedback!


This took a while, but we got to it finally! We also wanted to also share with you the results of our survey we conducted. Earlier in November, we asked for Feedback on our page and what you thought of it. We had 41 respondents and it’s always fun to look at statistics!


We put in a carrot (ok, actually 3 "polybags" of carrot sticks) for folks genuinely to really really really yes, really tell us about what they think, and heck, if we could get a few more likes on our FB page - why not, it will help in the long run. You can always unlike the page if it’s not something you like, but why not give us a chance? We were torn for quite a number of good feedback that we decided to award 4 winners, not just 3 as annouced.

Since we don't have names but only email addresses, we've redacted a few characters of the address, but I'm pretty sure you'll know if that's your email address. We will also be sending the winners a reminder on how we can get in touch with you. So please look out for that mail in your inbox!

Without further ado… the winners in no particular order are:

Respondent: f****.****p @ o*******.com



Brick Hello: Thanks for the thesis, oops.. I mean feedback! We hear you and keep a watch out on a couple of things you mentioned around interviews! We'll be sending you R3-M2 Polybag once we hear back from you!!!

Respondent: t*******_**y @ h******.**m



Brick Hello: Thank you for your very candid comments! Sometimes we like to think we don't know what we're doing at all but we're glad to hear that it's relevant and easy to consume for that's our intention. Keeping it simple! Look out for a Lester Minifigure Polybag once we get your address to ship them to!

Respondent:​ m*****6 @ g****.**m



Brick Hello: Very well said! Thank you for the suggestions, we look forward towards making the site better and easier to navigate and hope it helps you and others to consume our craziness easier! Reply to us with your address and we will be sending you a Batman Battle-Pod!

Respondent: o******p @ g****.**m



Brick Hello: Thank you for your thoughts and what you'd like to see! We're working on something along the lines of what you mentioned, we hope it touches the points you're after! Lookout for a Mini-Batmobile!

The survey results!

For the very first question, it looks like a huge portion of you came to our site for the carrots! Don’t be shy! You certainly were not! It’s all good! We hope it attracted you and keep you with us for a longer period!


Our second question, there were some canned responses, but we like that some of you came out with your own!!! I’m glad to hear that no one called it ugly, but a huge portion of think we need touchups! We’re also glad to see that content matters! We’ll keep doing what we do and hope you like what you see.


With regards to the content, it looks like most folks are good with what we do, but some just said we’re like any other site. We wonder why! Again, we’re glad that no one called us out on being unimpressive. we’ll take that a positive!


This is an interesting question. Again, we had canned answers, but we truly appreciate those that took the extra mile to give extra feedback. I’m glad to say folks want to see something random! To surprise them! That’s what we’ll keep doing! The other major areas are Set Reviews and Comparisons! We’ll try to do our best here!


Now, this is interesting too! Most folks are less than 3 years in the scene, but the’s a strong team of over 3 and beyond 5 years! We do have a standout who’s been an AFOL since the 80s! We think we know who you are! (*wink!*)
