The map is a little behind-the-scenes thing that probably won't get implemented due to security issues, but was something we wanted to test out.


You dreamt so much chaos while visiting this blog that you got the 1000th comment. Everybody take a bow, say congrats, and then continue on your boring everyday lives where this was the most exciting thing ever.

lol.

Maybe if I feel like it I'll make you a banner.

And actually, while I'm at it I should finally make that blog approval...

The Member Map Strikes Again

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZPower Sep 05 2012 · 175 views

First off, some of you may remember that back on July 18th, I posted this topic in Q&A, asking about a member map a staff member had added themselves to. Now, the only reason I noticed it was because it was the first notifcation I'd received since October, although I don't know why. If you know, please tell me. :P

That said, the member map has struck again, for tonight I received my second notification since last October when the staff member changed their place on the map or whatever. Needless to say, I'm curious about a few things:
  • Why are these the only two notifications I've received?
  • What is this member map? (Rhetorical, don't answer lol)
  • Will we ever discover its secrets?
Tue in next time to learn zero answers to these questions!

Also, if you have a recommendation for the next box art of the day, feel free to say so here.

iBrow On: Voltex

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in Life, BZPower Aug 27 2012 · 145 views

I've been asked where "Voltex" came from. What it is, how I came up with it, why do I use it, and so forth. So here's a short blog entry detailing it.

I was recently away for a month at a Leader in Training program at a camp I go to. At this camp, each LIT and staff member is given a special "camp name", one that nobody has ever -or will ever- have. It has to do with legacy, and leaving your mark. That said, "Voltex" is mine.

I am a storyteller, as should be evident by my rank title. I also ran a session on storytelling while I was there, and so they related me to Shakespeare. From Shakespeare they went to Benvolio from Romeo & Juliet, which I shortened to Volio. However, Volio doesn't quite have the ring to it I was looking for.

I worked with some friends, shifting the letters around, and came to Vortex. It wasa perfect, but unfortunately someone had already taken the name. I went cheap and shortened it to Tex, working in a Red vs. Blue reference, but to no avail- Tex was taken as well.

I pondered for a day and then decided to combine Volio and Vortex- that's how I got Voltex.

And there you have it.

I'm Back

With that said, name change has taken place. Explanations later if I feel like it, but rest assured you'll probably be calling me Voltex for a long time.

iBrow Voltex. Has a ring to it, eh?

Today is Awesome

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in Life, BZPower Aug 12 2012 · 165 views

Just as a note, I'm not actually on right now- this entry has been typed July 28th, 2012 before I left for a month. =P However, that doesn't change the fact that today is my birthday.

So I'm now 16, so woop dee doo I suppose. Time to drive and such. However, I thought I'd put a shout out here to a few other awesome people that have today listed as their birthday:
  • Kanohi Volitak - I've never actually seen this member, but the Volitak is easily my favourite Kanohi, so kudos to whoever this is.
  • Emperor Kraggh/Merida - Your reviews are pretty awesome, and I enjoy reading them (obviously). Keep them coming.
  • The_Professor - Never seen this person either, but a cool display name.
...you know, when I first looked at the list a few weeks ago I thought there were more. Oh well, two unknown members have now been given the spotlight momentarily by yours truly. Happy birthday you two. And to Emperor Kraggh.

Anyway, see you all in 2 weeks!! =D

On: The New Skin

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZPower Jul 24 2012 · 119 views

I like it a lot, actually. I find the muted colours pleasing to the eyes, while at the same time not distracting from the posts themselves. Having Takua in the blogs is cool, and he kind of goes with the colour theme of the new skin too.

Would anyone like to team up with me for this one? :P I feel like it would be more fun for me if I did so, and I might live longer. Maybe.

We're not teaching university science classes here, we're playing a text based fighting game where the objective is to beat your opponents into oblivion.

Get back in your grave, you.

Also, what pay are you gonna get as iBrow's slave?

Chro suddenly developed arachnophobia.

explain it with a convoluted quadruple negative.

Although everyone should go sign up for that game now.
And tell your friends.
And your moms.
Maybe not that last bit.

Poor Lhikan. Demoted from riding on top of an awesome Rahi to being packed in with a bunch of batteries as an afterthought.

However, this does not mean we no longer want to kill the rest of you for evading death. In fact, we would like to destroy you all, because we feel like it and we're the bad guys, the latter of which we only just realised.

...You guys didn't realize we were the villains all along?

You thought I was a good guy? ? ?

None of us are actually competent. We run around like headless chickens, if headless chickens were capable of wielding assault rifles and broadswords.

Man
I'm gonna bluff you guys so hard you won't even know that I'm bluffing
Or maybe you will
Except
It'll be a quadruple bluff



How is Chro's arms still on fire though? I bet Burnmad has something to do with it.

It's linked to Voltex's everlasting, endless fury.
