Summary[edit]

LUGNET logo

LUGNET provides a forum for the so-called "Adult Fans of Lego" to discuss Lego-related issues and post about creations using its NNTP, e-mail and web interfaces. LUGNET members can track their sets, build web pages, rate postings and create polls. The website also features a database of Lego sets and provides links to other major Lego sites. The aim of LUGNET is "To enrich the online experience for the LEGO enthusiast in a growing number of new ways".[3] LUGNET is overseen by two administrators.
