Rants And More Rants

Posted by Peach 00 , in BZP, Video Games Nov 09 2011 · 220 views

Yeah, this is yet another blog entry with just kind of everything in it, including my commentary on some decrease in discussion on BZP, me talking about Majora's Mask and how annoying Stone Tower is, and me complaining about the weather where I am. Isn't it lovely? :D

Well, let's first start out with BZP. I've seen a huuuuge drop of actual controversial discussion in some of the forums. I might be kind of wrong on this, but if you want a little bit of proof, go check out GD. It's become more of 'post it here' forum, so I've been wondering if anyone actually cares about the topics or not. Since Bionicle has gone, there's been a decrease in actual interesting discussion.

We used to wonder about what next year's sets will be like, what everybody's thoughts were on summer's line of Bionicle sets. Well, let's say that kind of died when Hero Factory came. Not that I'm bashing HF or anything, but there hasn't been much excitement about it. And, to be honest, I'm getting very exasperated with the countless 'Bring back Bionicle' petitions and clubs. Let's face it: It's not coming back.

Now that that's outta the way, let's move onto my current complaint. BZP's amount of diverse discussion is decreasing, slowly fading away into the background with the rest of the repeatedly posted topics. There mostly boost your post count topics more than anything, instead of actual interesting topics that people can state their minds in.

Anyway, I'm just disappointed with the fact people are almost mindlessly posting the same old topics. Not to offend anybody, but we really need to move on to different and more interesting threads instead of the same old boring things. =/

[/rantover]

Okay, well that was about 1/3 of this, lol. Anyway, remember how I was talking about Majora's Mask? Buckle up, get ready for a bum-py ride. :P

So. I'm thanking Nintendo for slowing down time in MM, and am reeeeeally glad you have the Bunny Hood. I'm currently playing MM, just entering the Stone Tower for probably the fifth time in the history of me playing this game, and I'm really hating the Elegy of Emptiness. Oh, why must I use this over a hundred times? >.< And, random observation with this before I keep going: Why does the Link clone look like a girl? o_o

Nonetheless, this temple is just overall really weird, but is still awesome. So many confusing details involved in it. Plus, I am really lost in the temple now, so I have no clue where to go, lol. This is more like a maze than an actual temple. -.-

[/rant2over]

And, last but not least, the weather. It decides to be really grey and gloomy outside, which dupes me into believing there might actually be snow, although it's not cold enough. So, maybe flurries - then, it just turns to cold weather, with a good chance of rain, but that doesn't happen either. And tonight, it's really cold and chilly out, with no sight of a moon anywhere, and absolutely noooo chance of snow or rain. Can we have a little bit of something please? ;_;

[/rant3over]

OK, well that was just about all I wanted to rant and rave about. Today has seemed like a bit of a lousy day, but that might just be in my eyes. Only good thing for me was going outside and actually taking pictures for the fun of it, but probably no chance of them showing up here. Sorry. =(

Anyway, discuss my thoughts on BZP, MM, or even the strange weather nobody is actually experiencing. :P

Bzp: Pros N' Cons

Posted by Peach 00 , in BZP Oct 15 2011 · 282 views

So, for the fun of it I decided I'd blog about BZP's new look. There's probably been five other members who did this before me, but eh, I don't care. =P I'm going to weigh in a little bit on the pros and cons, hopefully some people might comment and give some insight, too (which, might I add, is completely welcome). Read below for the review.

The New Look

Honestly, it's a bit dull - not much life in it. It's just blue and white. We need more flare. Blue and white are overused colors. I'm aware that the staff is going to be getting skins up, if I'm not mistaken, which might be better. But it would be nice if we some red here and their, or a really bright color. I'm not personally attacking the staff's decision with the color choice, but just saying.

Forums and Their Home

I like that the creative outlet is now its own forum area, with Art, Library, and RPGs and whatnot easy to find. They're all together. That's what it need to be. Before General Discussion was in the middle of it, which seemed out of place. Now it seems much better.

And LEGO sets and Bionicle sets are together, which looks nice instead of it being a 'Non-Bionicle' area at the bottom. To me, the whole area is laid out better.

Birthdays? People have birthdays?

Yeah, I don't necessarily like that it's a content block at the side. Rather have all the member names at the bottom like it used to be; seems like now there's a list you have to look through in a BZP link. It was easier to read the birthdays off, go wish the people happy birthdays, and move on. Now it's click, click, click typetypetypetype now. I don't consider this a huge issue, but would be better the old way.

Blogs

I like the layout, but no favorites list at the top? :( I liked that I could instantly go to my favorite blogs, but now I've got to either search through pages and pages or add them to that list or whatever on an entirely seperate page. I have no clue how to add the blogs there. *shrug*

Profiles are good, but...

...status? o.O Not sure why that's there, but I don't entirely dislike it. I don't see a huge need for it, but oh well. Either way, I like the profiles now, it's easy to see friends, check your blog, et cetera. It is more organized than before and easier to navigate through, honestly.

***

Those are my views, so now for just a list of pros/cons now below.

Pros

~ Yay, organization
~ Decent look
~ Forums/Subforums in their right places
~ Profiles look good and organized
~ Comments easier to track on profiles
~ Reply boxes are more fully-equipped
~ No having to worry about codes to put in! :D
~ Instant multiquote
~ IT'S BACK

Cons

~ Colors are slightly dull
~ Dataclysm repeat, noooo
~ How do I favorite blogs? >.>
~ Newest blog entries of blogs I don't view? Eh, might not be too bad...
~ Quick reply should be an open/close box
~ Confusing instant PM system

So in all...

Pros outweigh the cons 9-6, yaaaay. :happydance: Anybody is welcome to provide their own thoughts on BZP's new system.
