The New Bzpower

downtime problems changes
To those who were regulars to my blog before the downtime (I wasn't aware of any, but I can live in hope when I type my blog posts), you will remember I had a semi-ellaborate image of a bookshelf in the content box on the right (it's in the style of the bottom image at the bottom with the RIP notice, or you can visit my maj gallery here). It was used to link to my various comedies and epics which I had done in the past, and not finished mostly. But a little publicity doesn't hurt for anything. Unfortunately with the new BZP, the bookshelf didn't put it's various image components together in the organised way, so I set about making it so it would work. Unfortunately, in doing so I had to recover the links to my works from the forum archive. In order to find these easily, I needed to sign in for the archive. Now it turns out, you can't be signed into both. No idea why, but it's annoying as it took me a long time to eventually come up with the much less semi-ellaborate library now on the right. This is due to when I submitted the entry, I had been signed out, because I had signed into the archive. No matter, BZP is eager to help and had saved the post in the form of a big block of code for me to copy and paste. And as far as I can tell this code was completely useless! The button in the top left of the new entry box allows you to enter code, but enter BB code, whereas the code I was given to paste was not BB code...

I'm glad that BZPower is back, but at the same time, I miss the old one. Many would say (probably not those on BZP) that I'm now far to old for Bionicle, BZP or anything like that. And in some ways, I feel like I am older. I've had a look at some of my comedies, and I'd have to say that they don't do much for me anymore. Maybe I wasn't funny in the first place, but that's not for me to judge. My more recent work was epics, but I never had time to fulfil them to a conclusion. Not to mention they were full of typing errors, grammatical errors, and almost certainly plot and chronology errors. I haven't tried to get into Hero Factory, I hold an irrational hatred and think of it as childish, when I'm sure it's not more or less childish (except possibly in name, seriously don't like the name). It's just that I'm older and am not going to get into a new line of lego action figures...

The old BZPower was a refuge for me, the nerdy kid who played with lego when he was age 11, then age 12, then age 13 and so on. At age 17, I'm no nerdy kid anymore, I'm thinking about University and jobs, and my nerdiness is turning to an asset for my CV.

The New BZP seems like something thats trying to barge it's way into my newer life, it's more sophisticated and modern, and I think I dislike that. The old BZP I could slip into the nerd role, and talk about Bionicle, comment on MOCs, and write works of semi-ellaborateness for the epic forum. With the new look, I find it harder to slip into that role.

I just hope my views change, and that I'm still here in the future.
