The LEGO Message Boards were an official forum on LEGO.com set up in 2001, in which fans could discuss LEGO-related topics online. Since the forum was intended to be safe for children, all posts were reviewed by moderators before becoming public. Users needed to have a LEGO ID to be able to post. On November 2, 2012, the Message Boards were updated with new features such as new ranks, badges, and users' separate and individual profiles.
On March 30, 2017, it was closed down and re-setup as a redirect to LEGO Life's website. The users Astrokid12, Helios, Keplers, and TopSecretSpyGuy set up LMB Eternal after the announcement of the shutdown as a continuation of the boards.
