BZPower has now been around for 7 years, And I have been a member for just over five of them. In this blog entry I'll be reflecting on my early days here, talk about now.When I joined
: When I first joined BZPower, I was rather new to the whole internet thing, and the only website I was a member of was the Lego Club (Man, has that sure changed). I had been a guest for a few months, spending time reading the news posts every day. Once I finally discovered the forums (23-December 03) , I joined the website, blissfully unaware that rules were rules on the internet. Yes I had been a part of the Lego Club for a while, but I only joined for the games
). So naturally, once I finally figured out how to reply to a topic, (Which was posted by someone who had sent in for a replacement orange Vahi, to discover that he recieved the last such kanohi in stock.) I posted a spammy response... Twice. That was when I discovered the proto-meter. I spent many years missing one proto point until recently, but more on that later.
A month later, Hapori Dume took over BZPower for a day. Not realizing that it was April Fools day, I actually thought that the site had changed, then logged off for a while, simply because I wasn't as active as I am now.
I was never a very active member until after I discovered Rayg's Halo kit. I spent a lot of time messing around with spritesheets learning how to use them. I even went as far as to make a very bad flash animation using them. Once Rayg stopped making sprites, I joined Voho in the Innerrayg Halo Kit Continuation Project. I spent a considerable time recoloring spritesheets for people to use.
When the project finally died out, I tried my hand at a few BBC contests, losing all of them in the first round. I always seemed to be put up against some of the best MoCist in BZPower every time.
I eventually started to move out of CoT and started making the bulk of my posts in General Discussion, which I still do.
I posted an epic about my Bionicle alter ego: Toa Attei, which I have built two MoCs of.The Present
: Well, I now have my proto meter back where it was when I first joined, thanks to an offer from Toys R Us and Black Six. I'm not involved with any big projects, and am just your average member of BZPower.
I'll end this entry with a sample of my artistic talents that aren't seen enough here on BZPower, something that may or may not change.
