Yeah, a combination of several things are seriously cramping me. I think I can sum it up like this: Little Time, other Sites, Strange Feel.
I'm still on an hour and a half of time per day, and I'm active on a few other forums.
The biggest thing however, is the strange feel. It's twofold, honestly. The first is the skin: it looks like [Mentioning social networking sites is not allowed, unless it's Twitter. -Takuma Nuva][This is what happens when I lurk for a month. :P -Zar], and because of that it really doesn't feel like BZP. Honestly, I am really missing the old skin right now. The second fold is, of course, the members. Probably half because of my inactivity, but it seems like pretty much everyone I know is a lurker.
Currently, I'm going to be holing up in the library forums. You might once in a while see a review from me, but I'll probably just be reading.
...I have like 10 chapters of Wings to read.
I'll be done reading them by summer, if Inferna doesn't kill me for procrastinating.
...Or if Aderia doesn't kill me for taking three months to review her SS contest entry.
...I feel scared now...
Well, I've been away from here this week, down in new Jersey on a mission trip. I could take a few entries to get out the whole of it, but let's just say in short that it was a great time, with a low level of sleep, and a high level of kooky people (including myself. ).
So yeah, I've been realizing just how much I've been drifting away from BZP. Some of it is unavoidable: I don't feel as comfortable with the new forums (I am currently desperately hoping for a skin extremely similar to that of the old forum...), The new forums are more advanced, and so are slower on my old computer. Now it's even worse, with only one computer usable I have even less computer time (my RPG game is on hold again, ftr).
However, I've also been spending less time on forums in general, and also have been going on another lego forum, which kind of killed my activity even more. Coming back here is rather a shocking surprise at how out of everything I am. I talk regularly with about two members of BZP...
So yeah, I am seriously trying to get back into this place. Of course, until my parents fix one of the computers, I'm not going to be on a lot, only about 1-2 hours of time a day, unless I get lucky.
And I'm also trying to get into Techa, which considering the size of it (LL, you =should have made a separate topic for each sector ) is rather insane. I'm currently looking for anyone to meet up with in game...
Children of the barricade that didn't last the night.
They were schoolboys, never held a gun,
Fighting for a new world that would rise up like the sun.
Where's that new world now the fighting's done?

[1/19/2011 9:34:40 AM] Dovydas: I advocate independence for adverbs from the tyranny of adjectives.
That special age when a person has been chocked full of "facts" and "knowledge" that he truly begins to lose sight of the magics of our world and decides Santa Claus is nonexistant and Hallow's eve is childish.
He decides the Boogey Man is blasphemy and Faeries are fraudulous,
that Centaurs ride in fables, not forests.
That Dragons are Delusions and Pixies are poppycock.
So they do not get that there are things that cannot be seen.
There are hidden worlds all around us.

@ Legolover-361 : If I use one of those corny lines at eighteen, I bet girls will call the police on me.
[20:36:26] @ Legolover-361 : If I try to explain that it's "true love," like people say in Disney movies, they'll slap me and then call the police on me.
[20:36:50] @ Aderia : if you sing them love songs outside their window, the same thing will happen
[20:36:54] @ Legolover-361 : See, Disney, life isn't all about princes falling in love with princesses.
-Legolover-361 and Aderia.
I don't care if these "plastic bricks" were a better marketing decision, or if it gives LEGO employees food, home or clothing, or even if LEGO is a business in the first place. I just want my wooden ducks back because I want to be happy and I'm not going to give up a kid's toyline, not even if there was a similar one being made like it right now with a different name OR they continued the story for the fanbase. LEGO is just a cruel heartless evil greedy big fat meenie head by canceling the ducks.
DON'T BE TRAITORS EVERYONE. JOIN OUR CLUB AND TOGETHER WE'LL BUG LEGO FOR YEARS TO COME UNTIL THEY BRING THOSE DUCKS BACK! !!!!
WOODEN DUCKS FTW!!!
if you were true fans to bionicle you would support it's return you are not fans if you don't want it to come back even if you followed the entire story and loved them and bought every set and had joined a website with a large fanbase for them and made tons of friends and talked about bionicle every day and then when it ended you moved on to hero factory and don't want bionicle to come back you aren't a fan then because you thought it was going downhill and didn't like every single little aspect of it and you don't want it to come back and you aren't petitioning lego like mad and throwing temper tantrums left and right and aren't carrying on bionicle's revolutionary legacy means you are all traitors to those who want their most favorite toy back we know our fantasy will come true because we are here we are waiting and we want our bionicle and if star trek fans had as a group said no point in talking about this anymore it's never going to come back it never would have come back and lego is pushing their poorly designed and overpriced hero factory in little kids faces bionicle didn't need it so we have evidence to prove that our toy line which we simply cannot live without is going to come back because we will hold our breath and storm denmark if we don't get our way which we will because we always get our way and get what we want even if it comes back in ten years we can ask for the entire new line of bionicle for our thirtieth birthday and when bionicle comes back we'll have plenty of money to buy them because we didn't betray bionicle and buy hero factory like you all did you annoying little black hearted meanies who call yourselves fans when you're not you stinky shoe wearing snobs who don't agree with the movement to bring bionicle back
-where did i go wrong.
