I need you guys to help me out though. The feature will only help if you actually use it and use it as intended, so you all have to promise not to be silly.
Think you can do that?
Didn't think so.
But I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Suggest some fun nicknames, phrases, and other things I could put on a badge.
Bricks I already have include:
- Black Six
- DON'T PANIC
Let's see what you can come up with!
Edit: Alright, nice! Here's the current frontrunners:
- KEEP IT CLEAN
- Prince Andrew
Some other ideas I've had:
- Thread closed
- Bodyguard of the King
Yep, so that happened.
Similarly, is there anything you'd like to ask TLG's very own Kevin Hinkle? I hear he's a pretty big deal.
Post in the comments or send me a PM with your question. No guarantees that you'll get and answer (or one you'll like) but I'll try.
It is also the first day of BrickFair 2012 Virginia, the fifth such event held. (Congrats Todd!)
BrickFair 2012 Viriginia will be the tenth AFOL fan convention that I've attended.
Sunday, August 5 is my twenty-fifth birthday. A quarter-century!
Monday, August 6, will mark my eleventh year as a member of the BZPower Staff.
All this right after BZPower celebrated its eleventh anniversary.
It's crazy to think about all that - I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it all.
But I know one thing - I couldn't ask for a better group of people to celebrate it with than my friends from BZPower. I just wish more of you all could be there!
It made me think about how long I've actually been on the Internet (it's a long time) and the things I've taken part of and the people I've interacted with. Here's a quick list of some of the communities I have been or am still a part of:
- Super Soakers
- Warcraft II
- Star Trek TBRPGs
- Turn-based online role-playing games
- MUSHes (look that one up, kiddos )
- Console portablization
- Red vs Blue
- Bionicle communities before BZPower
I look at that list and it's like, 'wow, what have I wasted my time on?' But really, the experiences I had and people I talked to on each of those definitely helped shape me over the years.
Since August of 2001 though, BZPower has been my home-on-the-Internet.
How about you all, have you been a part of other places out there, or has BZPower been your only foray into the wilds of the Internet?
- Who's your favorite pro football team?
- Pro Basketball?
- Pro hockey?
- Pro Baseball?
Without question, my favorite team is the New York Football Giants. Football is really to only pro sport I follow. I like it because there's only sixteen games (plus playoffs) so there's a fairly limited commitment compared to other sports. Plus it give me something to talk about with my coworkers.
I used to follow basketball pretty closely, but not so much anymore. My team was always the New York Knickerbockers, and I fondly remember the days when Patrick Ewing was the big man in charge.
I've never been a huge hockey fan, but I did follow it a bit in the 90s. Back then my favorite team was the New Jersey Devils, so I'll go with them.
Baseball is probably my least favorite professional sport. And my least favorite team is by far the New York Yankees. So if I had to pick a favorite it would be the Boston Red Sox or the New York Mets, just to spite all the Yankees fans. I could also say the Baltimore Orioles since they're the local team for me nowadays and I don't really have any loyalty to another team.
Here's a quote from the IPS rep we worked with:
The long and short of all this is that the problem was with converting the tags in the blog. We've.. Still got problems there, and you have.. Somewhere around 69k tags.. Normally, I hit a site with 500 or 5000 tags.. Ok.. I can deal with that.. The sheer numbers here.. I had to get.. Shall we say.. Creative.
Geez guys, you got a little carried away over here, you think?
Anyway, they got through all the tags in the end, and hopefully it won't cause any problems in the future.
As a result of this, however, I have changed some settings for tags:
Maximum length per tag: 20 characters
Maximum tags per item: 5 tags
I think this should still be plenty for all your tagging needs.
We're not going to implement any new rules other than the above, but please try to take it easy with the tags.
