A [[poll]] system is then used to determine whether the user gains access to the Guild. As you can see this system is very discriminating and is basically completely biased to somebodies skill level. This is ironic considering their motto at the site is build, inspire, befriend... Since all they really do is make fun of the not so well known MOC makers and make a reserved private zone of the website for themselves. Which is pretty plain pathetic. But CABG likes making people feel bad about themselves because thats the kind of fat fucking assholes we are at CABG :D

The Clone Army Builders Guild is a free internet forum dedicated to the discussion of Star Wars Lego products, specifically the Clone Wars line.

Forum Description

From the forum's 'About' section:

"The Clone Army Builders Guild, or CABG, is a group of Lego Star Wars lovers that particularly enjoy the Clone Wars era in the Star Wars universe. [...] Guild members Create their own Clone Trooper Legion, Lego creations from all themes, participate in Guild-only contests, view Guild-only areas of this forum, and most importantly, share their creations with other members for feedback and suggestions."

The Guild

The Clone Army Builders Guild's focus is on the Guild section of the site. This section is private, and is accessible only by sending a Personal Message (PM) to the forum administrator containing links to a gallery of Lego creations by that user. A poll system is then used to determine whether the user gains access to the Guild.

Site History

The site was created on January 8th, 2008. The founding member was CloneCommando007.

To quote from his post on January 8th 2009;

I’d like to take a moment here to look back on the year. Just a few (or quite a few) high lights.

These may or may not be in any order…

On the Date of January, 2008, a young man, or old boy, if you prefer, created a site called “Clone Army Builder’s Guild”.

It is now a year later. What’s happened in that time?

For starters we’ve allowed 83 members to join the guild. We’ve held 12 Contests, 9 Guild Builds, 4 Quote Contests, 4 Corps Challenges, 1 All Members Challenge, and one Christmas Exchange.

We’ve collected many famous members. We’ve collected two of the most famous customizers on the web to the site. We’ve collected two of the most famous Lego Movie Makers. We’ve collected quite a few prolific builders, and gotten large enough to pass up dozens of other small lego fansites.

We’ve collected members from USA, Canada, England, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Austrailia, New Zealand, Norway, Austria, and many other countries.

We’ve played two Mafia Games, one incomplete and another awesome, that will soon have a movie and Sequel. We're also in the process of starting another game right now!

We’ve had two comic series devoted to this site. We’ve had GIMP introduced, and we’ve had a bunch of cool comics pop up, all with great stories!

We’ve come up with different saying and references. It is only on CABG that you can be “Out Mongoose’d” or share your two credits. (Maybe you can share two credits other place, but the mongoose thing I think is here only…)

We’ve had our own Christmas Special, complete with a cast of several dozen of our finest members.

We’ve had members fade out, have had two resign, and have had two come back, one with an official statement!

We’ve posted over 62250 Posts.

We've started over 2225 Topics.

We've had over 610 people register.

We've built, we've contested, we've discussed, we've had an awesome time, and we’ll do it all over again in 2009!

The Administrators and Moderators play a very important part in keeping the forum running smoothly at all times.
