Ready to kill someone dead Madness; Raeg
This is why I'm steaming mad.

Apparently Reep's been yanked into this too, along with who knows how many other people.

I call for a petition to get Amazon to take this down. I dunno who's behind this, but he better hope he never runs into me.

EDIT: Apparently I'm not the only one incensed about this. Thanks for letting me know, Saya!

Supposedly, when other wikis like Herofactorypedia got into these books, Wikia was contacted and they said it was perfectly legal. Although a wiki like this being compiled and sold might be a different case, since it publishes many people's intellectual properties without their consent.

If you can find a way to contact Amazon about this publisher, by all means do so.

LEGO should have grounds for a lawsuit on this, it being copyright infringement in all. Even if they consented to this, it's still wrong. Plus, the fact that nobody was informed or made aware of this? This is pretty big stuff, one way or another.

Not sure how many have downloaded some of these stories, but if there were more than ten downloads, that's at least two hundred dollars in all that this 'Wikia' has been making.

And, I agree with Chols. Contact Amazon ASAP - the sooner, the better.

Techincally, LEGO cannot do anything about this. Wikis can contain information on their IPs for reference purposes. Furthermore, publishing such content isn't necessarily illegal either. What seems to be illegal here is that "Books LLC" is just printing random wikia books (and selling them at ridiculous prices too). The wiki content is being taken and sold for someone else's commercial use, which violates Creative Commons licensing.

I say get some of the Admins of BZP to contact Amazon. Maybe they can have something to say about it.

Any way, this is crazy. Who could sell stories from BZP on Amazon?

Welcome

These halls have seen much. From tales of heroes and friendship to tales of villains and death, from stories familiar to the ones out of our world, they have seen them all.

Enter Seneca's Keep if you dare. These halls ring with the laughter, screams, and sobs of those that enter our realms and listen to our words. Many leave in the end, but there are those that fall so under our spell that they never set foot in the outside world again.

They still haunt the Keep -- you may see them out of the corner of your eye, pale and wane from lack of proper sustance. They will not harm you, so long as you do not give them reason to, but take their tale as a warning. Delve into our otherworldly plots with caution -- immerse yourself too deeply, and even we Seneca will not be able to prevent you from becoming part of the Keep and our stories forever.

Join us at your own risk.

The Toa Seneca And Their Wares

Who We Are: "Seneca" means "place of stones" in a certain Native American dialect. This relates to the Amaja Circle on Mata Nui, the story-telling pit where the Turaga used stones to represent various points of a story. In some way -- be it through Role-Playing in the RPG forum or CoT, writing stories in the Library, or creating comics in the Creative Outlet -- we all tell stories to others. By ourselves and with the aid of others, we bring these tales to life. We are the Storytellers. We are the Toa Seneca.

Quote-A-Monium


Nuzar the Pinapoconut : That is just plain cute! Kopaka's expresiion is priceless.



Turakii #1 Lavasurfer : Kitty ears for Mata: $6 apiece at Hot Topic

Shrink ray to make them fit in teacup: $200,000

Kopaka expression once he discovers what the others are about to do to him: Priceless



~La Pantoufle Seule ~: OOC: ME TO THE RESCUE. -fanfare plays while I jump off building-

-falls-


Kothra: OMG! BAD INFERNA.


Alex Humva: Zarry has the powers of prediction, guys. Listen to him, lest you become a fly on honeypaper thats on fire with a nuke aimed at it.


Shot by a PHYSICIST!: *Spittake* Three point five? That does it. I'm moving to Washington.


Japoro (in an arguement with Kagha about the possiblity of AeolusxAmph in H&H): You say she wants to dump me for some loser air toa?! I KILL YOU FOOL!


Akaku: I'm not scared of Inferna -- just fearfully surprised.


Sir Kohran: If your parents think you're too old for Lego, simply ask them what you should be into instead, then enjoy the bewildered silence that follows.


Me: On a weird scale we're all normal, but on a normal scale we're all weird.


Half-Dragon: Seems like everyone and their archnemesis has a legacy. Me? I don't even HAVE an archnemesis, let alone a legacy. Does that make me shallow or just really lucky?


Akaku: I like to pretend everything is going well whilest in reality its nothing short of the apocalypse.


AlchemyFox: All love is tragic... Unless you're Shakespeare. Then it's just plain "Whaaaaaat?"


Dalek: I guess I can blame this confusion on your being knocked out with smoke. You are currently in a cell, with LK in the cell to your right, Tahu01 in the cell to your left, and Turakii in the cell to the right of LK's. I turned on Tahu01, knocked you all out, and stuck you in these cells. Now I'm gonna hold you all for a ransom of 500,000 widgets each.

Smeag: WHAT! I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS! *BURSTS INTO COMPOUND* WHO WANTS A PIECE OF ME?!?! *PROCEEDS TO KNOCK OUT ALL THE GUARDS* *SMASHES HEAD THROUGH NIKI'S* CELL* I'M HERE TO RESCUE YOU!

Dalek: *teleports Nikira to Smeag-proofed cell* Pay the 500,000 widgets, or I test my new ray gun on her! >=D

Smeag (in Nikira's profile): There is no such thing as a Smeag-proof cell. My blundering bombast overcomes all. As you can see, I've already rescued her. >:3


Necro: A lie is just a great story that someone ruined with the truth.


Varderan: Violence makes the world go around.


Along with pretzels and assorted hair products.



Kagha (about something I told him from LST): ... DEATH?



Amph's gonna die?

*runs into basement, pulls out hammer, and runs after Inferna*



Kagha in KG: Anyway, curse you all and your stupid fast-moving RPG. ><


(My personal statement) "Interjection: Silence, meatbags!" - HK-47

Mangai (in my profile): @ Personal statement: Oh, yeah! HK RULEZ

Too bad I never played KotOR, or its sequel XP

Me (in his profile): Actually, that quote came from a MMO trailer that follows KOTOR II. =P


Mangai (in my profile): CARKITALL

Oh, well, now I have proof that I am unawesome for Zar. Thanks! :P

More Quotes

Alex (in KG): YAY-*Choughhackwheeze*


Necro: Wait.


If guitars are universes, and I play with and own multiple guitars, does that make me a God?

KNEEL BEFORE ME


Alex (in Starscape): an era when Natsirt claimed to be guns

King of Shadows (in Starscape): BEST ERA OF ANYONE'S HISTORY ANYWHERE


Peach 00 (in PM): Always loved the Song of Double Time on Majora's Mask. Watch, we'll figure out somebody on the planet has an ocarina and is the source of why the year is going by so fast. :P


Myself (in an AIMRPG; as Toa of Psionics Kalima): "Who's he?"

Akaku (in the AIMPRG; as Toa of Undeath Akuji): "He ... He is part of everything ... He is the age in a being, the disease in a society, the bullet in a gun... He is what gives this world balance. He is the one who looks after the fallen, and either sends them to the pit or the realm of the great beings ... He is among all of us, even now, especially in my kingdom ... especially in me."

Why Inferna Shouldn't Play Rpgs

Rockhound (in the BZProvince Discussion Topic, fighting Xom and Kagha over my character): We really should get all three of us together and brawl it out. Winner-date-'Ferna. :P


Kagha (in KG): Lol, Xom, Inferna can only have so many romantically involved characters. XD

Rockhound (in KG): Says who, Kagha? :P

Xomeron (in KG): If by "So Many" you mean Infinity. In BZProvince, she had four people chasing after her character at once! My character included.



HN (in KG): OOC: Inferna, I am not going to IC six guards all fighting two people. xD
And Inferna, wouldn't that mean that you're fighting Mark? o_o; Do you want me to take Mark.
OR ARE YOU GOING TO USE VERT BECAUSE YOU'VE INJECTED THE SERUM GASP GASP GASP GASP.
..
-i didnt give Inferna an idea I DIDNT I DIDNT-
-in denial-

Me (in KG): OOC: Thanks for the ideaaaa.[/singsongvoice] :evilgrin:



Me (in KG): OOC: Hint to HN: Don’t give ideas to the evil genius co-Moderator. :P




HN (in KG): OOC: ZOMFISH I SEE WHERE YOU’RE GOING WITH THIS INFERNA
O_O
YOU ARE GENIUS. XD




Akaku (on AIM): (If people are flirting with you in RPG's again, I will note I now fully reserve the right to yell at them XP)
