I've come to realize, and accept, That I only really stick around on bzpower for 3 main things. The Main thing, the Bzprpg, specifically the one centered around the Island of Mata-nui, not all those other bionicle rpgs which I have no interest whatsoever in attempting to get into. The Next two can kind of be clumped together, Bzp Hitman and Mafia games. Those two series of topics are really the only 'areas' of bzpower where I don't feel like that awkward person standing in the corner at a huge party, with no idea why they are there. I mean I like to think I'm somewhat accepted in those two topic series, especially since they typically have the same people generally playing, so it's more of a longterm 'hey I know you, and I know how you play'. *Shrugs*
That's not to say I haven't tried to dip my toes into other parts of Bzpower, but everytime I just encounter this overwhelming... Aura, stench, Miasma? Not sure what the best term would be, but it's just this wall of semi-elitism or people so high-strung that just need to unclench, or just cliques in general, if you aren't well known or know somebody it's next to impossible to really get involved.*
These are all major turn offs for me really. If I can't enjoy a topic, I sure as heck am not going to stick around in said topic. But I don't get those impressions, that's the word I was looking for, from the Hitman and Mafia topics. Bzprpg only slighty in regards to elitism, but that's mostly because it's players who have been around for so long who have a rather good grasp on the game, yet generally are willing to take time to rp with newer people, so it's kind of understandable.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that if those three 'area's' of bzpower ever disappear, I probably would follow shortly after.*Reminder that these are just my personal opinions from what I've experienced and encountered, and may not be shared by others.
