Out of the three I voted for, I'd have to say sales and deals are the most important to me. Most other LEGO fan sites are focused on MOCs and reviews. Sales and deals usually get pushed back or go unreported so I think that this could be something that Toys N Bricks could really capitalize on this. New sets are probably the next important because everybody is always on the lookout for what they can get next. This one is usually covered by everybody though so sales and deals are still the most important and most time sensitive issue.

There's my 2 cents.

I voted for everything - I'm interested in most of the stuff you guys report on, though I'm mostly looking for sales and deals.

You've been great so far at reporting sales & deals and new sets. So, I voted for reviews as it seem to be the only part that your coverage is lacking.

The most important thing should be sales and deals. Not many other websites provide much about that, so that is very important, especially with the economy trouble lately. Also new set coverage is a close second (and by close, I mean CLOSE - sales = 50.1%, new sets = 49.9%) on my priority list. I first found out about this site looking for just that. Those two topics should be the main priority.

However, I would enjoy seeing a great MOC more often on toysnbricks. I mean, who wouldn't?

That was how it was for me. I followed a link here off of Brickhorizon and it seemed that every news article dealt with sales and deals and I followed up on them. I actually thought that was the main purpose of this site until I joined and found other little tidbits and MOCs, etc.

Yeah, if you did a "MOC of the Week" post that would probably be enough... or one post every week with a "MOC Roundup" or something - I don't think each and every MOC that's of high caliber necessitates an individual news story. I could see Tuesdays having a "Weekly MOC Roundup" post and Thursdays having a "Weekly Review Roundup" post, with the rest of the news being "Rumors/Info", "New Set Finds", and "Sales/Deals", and then whatever site-specific news stories are necessary smattered about (announcements of new contests, voting, site upgrades, what-have-you.)
