Pet Peeve Contest -- Help Fight Survurlode!

Posted by bonesiii , Nov 04 2007 · 169 views

Evil Lord Survurlode


Today the Bones Blog brings you a contest an information gathering drive about Pet Peeves, creatures that feed on things that are annoying. We believe they might be useful in the war against Evil Lord Survurlode, so we want to find more kinds!

All of the following is placed inside a spoiler tag, because our sources tell us that Evil Lord Survurlode and his minions cannot open these tags due to a glitch his own minions caused.

Pet Peeve Species: One-word-post
My Name: Xaeraz:KKFN's ghost/Zephyr
Bio: The one-word-post is a vague creature. It likes to eat short posts and bad short stories. The one-word post keeps things overly simple. The one-word-post is highly annoying. The one word post makes short, quiet sounds. Xaeraz owns a one-word-post.
Description: A floating outline. Very vague in shape.

A wild BRAKALATABASAASTA appeared!
Stats: Feeds off spam. Lots and lots of spam. Survurlode is kinda afraid of that, because as we all know, Floods are made out of spam. Pretty obvious, isn't it? rolleyes.gif
Ownership: I don't have one, because I don't spam.(Well, maybe a little when there is a full moon on a dark and stormy night.) There was this guy called connor who had one(I think), but he got banned.

Pet Peeve Species: The Corrector
My Name: Uh... I suppose it's xccj...
Bio: This wild peeve tends to infect other members (I have been a host for it before). It makes the host correct every single problem it finds with other members, be it minor spelling mistakes or storyline errors. While initially beneficial, over-infection by this peeve is a source of irritation to the victims of its correction, lowering their resistance to Evil Lord Survurlode's powers.
Description: It has lots of spikes. biggrin.gif

Uh... no offense to anybody who's been infected by this peeve. lookaround.gif

Pet Peeve Species: Flame
My Name: Wysp
Bio: A Flame is a small, almost cute creature that many people have thought cute and brought into ownership. Although it starts small, it expands as it is fed, eventually consuming whole Metrus and setting them ablaze. It can reproduce like a bacterium, splitting itself into smaller halves, and appealing to its prospective owners.
Description: A small floating flame with large, cute orange eyes. When it expands, its true being is revealed as its eyes turn bloodred and it actually becomes a real fire, blown to expand by the wind.

Electric Turahk
Nov 04 2007 06:39 PM
Pet Peeve Species: The Misinformed
My Name: Electric Turahk
Bio: This particular Pet Peeve goes around posting false information. To make matters worse, they make it seem genuine! These Peeves are also rather foolish, being oblivious to the fact that what they are saying is incorrect, even going so far as to believe in what they are asying.
Description: Various witnesses to their actions all report different appearances of these guys, but a few things remain consistant: They drool a lot, have wide, blood shot eyes, and a body of writhing tentacles.

Kopaka's Apprentice
Nov 04 2007 07:12 PM
Pet Peeve Species: Bad People
My Name: Kopaka's Apprentice
Bio: An ugly, foul, stinky peeve that makes its home in open graves and slime pits. It feeds off of vulgar speech and foul sights. I own this peeve.
Description: A green or gray blob with putrid, foul smelling breath and yellow razor sharp fangs. It's fat, oily, bumpy skin and sharp, twisted claws make this peeve very grotesque.

Pet Peeve Species: Ignorance
My Name: Kopaka's Apprentice
Bio: This peeve is able to make one proud and ignorant of other people. It twists the mind so that one because selfish and unaware of one's own sin. I own this peeve also.
Description: A mist that floats in front of people's eyes to blind them and make them unaware.

Pet Peeve Species: Complaining
My Name: Kopaka's Apprentice
Bio: A peeve that loves to have cheese with its whine. It inspires greed and pickiness so one becomes rebellious and selfish. I own this peeve.
Description: A peeve that normally takes the form of a spoiled 4 year old that will always try and get its way.

Pet Peeve Species:Double Poster

Me Name:EmperorWhenua (Yes, Emperor tongue.gif )

Bio:Double Posters seem to accumulate with the floods, rising and falling with the tide. They will eat up a server, taking a toll on the innocent members who attemp to wade through the waters, but their displacement of mass makes the waters rise further, eventualy drowning the member as it simply surrounds the hapless members. It's power, as it dwells in the floods, increases with the tides, thusly being able to inflict much damage even to the more senior of the members who seem invincible to others Peeves.

Description: These are strange, amoeba-ish cretures that live in the waters, a pinkish tint of board messages the only sign of their gathering, brought about in a wash of the deadly pink-ish red-ish board messages.

~EW~

Pet Peeve Species: Crazy Guy
My Name: Adventurer
Bio: Respected creatures that post long incomprehensible posts that make an otherwise simple topic extremely hard to understand. Most common in S&T and if prolonged exposure occurs, an infection will take hold. After three days you become a Crazy Guy and the process starts again.
Description: Crazy Guys can appear in any form, though there is a rumour that one of the originals looks liek a pile of bones...

Eljay: Toa of Mangosteen
Nov 05 2007 03:48 AM
Pet Peeve Species: Post-in-the-wrong-Links to forums are NOT allowed.
My Name: Lewajohnson: Toa of Mangosteen
Bio: This post's in the wrong forum, no matter what. It can make
so many topics that the forum will come down. If banned it will come
back again, and again. It uses locked topics as weapons.
Description: A blob, with 10 arms on all sides.

Pet Peeve Species: Trigger Happy
My Name: Aanchir: Rachira of Time
Bio: A parasite that causes unintentional double-clicking (and subsequent double posting) in posters, frequently targeting hosts such as newbies and people with broken mouse buttons *coughmecough*. We think it somehow gets sustenance from the extra posts. In that case, the variety that causes double reports on those double posts, while equally annoying, sure isn't getting invited to any peeve parties anytime soon.
Description: Looks remarkably like a "Post New Comment," "Post New Topic," "Send Message," "Send Report," etc. button superimposed over another similar button, both shivering occasionally from that dreadful case of flood control that's been spreading through the site. They'd be an unusually sickly blue if they weren't that color already.

Pet Peeve Species: The Unapproved
My Name: Xaeraz:KKFN's ghost/Zephyr
Bio: Another peeve that Xaeraz owns, The unapproved is a relatively minor peeve, taking up residence in either Artwork II, Bionicle RPG, or Games and Trivia. This peeve will latch onto an unexpecting BZPer, commonly part of the "member" group, and will drive them to post an unapproved game, rpg, or shop. Once it grabs hold, it will then attempt to crash the server by sending as many reports as possible, and then will grab onto members that also try to report the topic.
Description: Looks sorta like a bohrok head, with lots of clawed tentacles.

Pet Peeve Species: The Constant Spammer.
My Name: Xaeraz:KKFN's ghost/Zephyr
Bio: Yet another of Xaeraz's peeves, The Constant Spammer, or TCS, is prevalent in nearly every forum. This peeve will take over a member, forcing them to write spam, and nothing but. These members can rid themselves to TCSs, but they usually need half a year to do so. Reports suggest that this peeve feeds on spam, as well as popup ads, which may be why We don't get very many of those on BZP. TCSs often only use members, but will use premier members, outstanding members, and outstanding premier members, although very rarely. It appears that BZP staff are immune to this creature.
Description: Looks like a noobish sprite, lacking shading or poses.

second worst username ever
Nov 05 2007 12:12 PM
Pet Peeve Species: Baby Gukko
My Name: The Infection
Bio: It doesn't like it when you say 'lol'
Description: Guess.


Pet Peeve Species: Tpyofrg Typofrog
My Name: bonesiii The Infection
Bio: The Typofrog is a very common creature and usually weak. However, the Tuponyfrog Typofrog's saliva has a unique chemical embedded in it called 'Tiribomba' (no relation to the Matoran) that causes whatever it hits to temporarly make clumsy spelling and grammar mistakes ans and also sometimes causes pimples. It doesn't help that the Typosfrog Typofrog has a pretty good spit range. These guys are wild as far as I know, though they seem to spit on me all the time.
Description: It looks like a frog, bones =P

Pet Peeve Species: Polloflower
My Name: The Infection
Bio: If anything can be turned to a poll, the Polloflower will be sure to mention it. It lurks in the shadows and springs out whenever someone makes something can be made into a poll, whether it be a topic, a sickle, a cake or even a poll. I've got one of these in my basement. You're free to have it if you feed it every three hours.
Description: A pink dandelion with option check boxes for eyes and a mouth that looks like an ampersand. (&)
    • 0
Pet peeve species: Spameroko (Spam-er-Ah-Koh)
My Name: Hihkan:ChosenOneofLight
Bio: This creature has no form. In order to take one, it jumps into the mind of a BZPer who is posting and makes them spam. Whatever the spam is about, the Spameroko takes the form of. If the spam is just letters, it takes the form a stick-figure. Its michevious nature makes it quite hated. And no vaxine has been made. When it's formless, it blends into the pixels behind it, waiting for a poster.
Description: Inivisible unless spam is made.

Now this is a contest tongue.gif .


Pet Peeve Species: Old Yeller
My Name: ~Kativa~
Bio: The quiet, serene atmosphere of a discussion topic is something one cherishes. That is until an Old Yeller shows up. Spawned from a ignorant caps lock, these deluded peeves believe that it is causing no harm while talking; UNAWARE THAT ITS ONE SENTENCE POST IS AN OBNOXIOUS ALL OUT CAPITAL LETTER FEST LIKE THIS WITHOUT ANY PUNCTUATION
Description: This particularly annoying peeve looks like another harmless Bzp member, until it talks. It reveals a freakishly large cavity that puts those kids in the Honey Comb commercials to shame. I have one, can't really say I like it. I was only able to get it to shut up after I shoved a LaZboy recliner into it's mouth.


Pet Peeve Species:Pica'huge
My Name: ~Kativa~
Bio: This peeve is yet another species ignorant of it's massive annoyance factor. Like the Old Yellers, these are also big and obnoxious. These critters appear out of nowhere in a sig *usually a new members* and increase a topics actual length by more then a quarter of it's actual post bio-mass. When one of these things is around, you had better hope it only appears once, lest your topic be 6 times larger then it really is.
Description:No two Pica'huges are alike. Some doubt any are the same speices as the other. However, they all have two things in common. One, they take on the appearence of a unedited image in a sig. Second and last, they're freaking huge. They bloat topics to dangerous proportions, to the point of exploding. I used to have one, but after a member kindly warned me of their lethal potential, I banished it.


Pet Peeve Species: Lookness Monster.
My Name:~Kativa~
Bio: Unlike the other peeves, this species is more then aware of the devastation it leaves in it's wake.This sick creature spends the time to look and read fan-fiction, but doesn't bother doing anything else, leaving the ambitous and well done story to die. Like the Lochness Monster, there is indisputable evidence that it is there, yet it never actually reveals itself.
Description: A treacherous, sleek and slimy creature that glides through the Library forum, reading topics with it's large eyeball. The better the story is, the more it's likely to turn around and sail away, laughing rudely *Unless the member is popular or a celebrity. If this is the case, it proceeds to be a kiss-up* I don't own one, infact I protest against such creatures being allowed into the Library forum.

Never said it had to do with BZP, guys.

Pet Peeve Species:The Miwo
My Name: Lluvio
Bio: Manifests itself on computer desktops as a poorly designed text program. Once opened, it will open a program called Microsoft Word, and will swiftly change anything you type, incorrectly. I formerly owned one of these, but I abandoned it somewhere on a busy highway in Arizona.
Description: A "W" in compressed form, with scribbles underneath. In open form, it is a white box with a bunch of smaller white boxes around, each containing icons that cannot be understood.


Born of my hatred of Microsoft Word. I think there's at least one spelling error in here...

Pet Peeve Species: The Tattletale
My Name: Rakuna the Miner
Bio: It runs around the forms, and when spotted by a member, it attempts to make that person report every post he/she dislikes.
Description: It has no ragged edges, two legs with small feet, short arms, and a big head.


Pet Peeve Species: The Eraser
My Name: Rakuna the Miner
Bio: Invades posts members are still typing, and when one moves the typing bar to and already typed word to correct it, when that person is typing a letter, it replaces it with the old one.
Description: A tall skinny, spiky creature.

Sounds interesting....


Pet Peeve Species: Ughhmm-Links
My Name: Gakurak, or Gakurahk. It varies.
Bio: Though rare, in a random manner, they will often randomly do some or any of the following, or whatever:
1,Mis-linking; It causes you to forget the last thing you've copied, and, if you're unfortunate enough, that is, cause you to link to something utterly off topic and random; like a sorta-classified video of someone picking his nose, or an MAJ gallery containing the aftermath of Kopaka spray-painting Tahu pink, or a website run by someone who thinks that fruitcake flavored Mentos are proof of a conspiracy to feed our minds to aliens, or something crazy like that, or something. SOMETHING!

2,System manipulation Links; though quite rare, these thingies will link to stuff that exploits BZP's own software. They range from simple log out links, to ones that mess around with your account settings, and sometimes even stuff that will lead you to posting trillions upon billions upon milions empty responses. And it can get worse. I mean, it would certainly be horrible to have your member title changed to something like "I am a banana!", or "moo" or something, wouldn't you think?

3, I CAN HAS PWOTO PLEAZ Links; these things while old, and mostly hunted down, are often found in peoples' sigs. Basically, they exploit an old flaw with the system via something I won't mention. Usually, when they are labeled in the likeness of "CLIK HEAR FOUR PWOTO", they are quickly, if not immediately reported. How is this annoying if you get free stuff like that? When it raises your "Proto Bar" to full, and you never did anything for it, and you come up as an outstanding member on the active members list, regardless, you're going to get eaten by the moderators in trouble for quite some time. IT'S NOT WORTH THE PWOTO!! YOU'LL GET EATEN!!

4,Brain Eating Links; These will link you to either A; a website that floods your screen with popups, B; a link to an ENORMOUS image (As in 7000x1200 pixel images, one of which I own), or C; a link that causes the server to "ping" your router/computer to death. When this happens, you'll meet this wonderful hardware error known as the BSOD or BLue Screen Of Death. Encountering these will cause you too become overjoyed and run around screaming and stuff, which will usually lead to physical harm, which is never good...
Description: Seemingly harmless, cute, cuddly, but evil. As in it will eat you, or something. EAT YOU. Panic, if you will, please.

The Big Cheese
Nov 06 2007 12:28 PM
Pet Peeve Species:Stefus Aniclerus
My Name:The Big Cheese
Bio:Native primarily to the mythological region only referred to in ancient posts as the Creative Outlet, the Stefus Aniclerus is a stubborn creature. It produces numerous offspring(known as MOCs) on specific dates. These dates are set by the Stefus itself, and if it does not produce the amount of offspring promised by the specific date, the Stefus will undergo what is commonly referred to in the science community as "self-destruct." Only one known specimen of the Stefus has entered other regions of The BZP. This specimen produced offspring beyond the limit of what can be counted by a normal human. Attempts to tame the creature and help it produce offspring that would have a positive effect on The BZP were consistently proven futile. Eventually, this Stefus had to be elimanted by INCA(Interforum Noob Containment Agency) Bionicle Rex.
Description:Unknown. The Stefus can take numerous shapes. Reports of wild specimens vary in description from giant organgutans to microscopic pigs. WARNING! The Stefus can disguise itself as a normal member of the Memberus family by using proper grammar and mature statements! Do not be fooled by this deception!

Well, thats the best I could think of. Great contest bonesiii!!!

Pet Peeve Species: Typcgraphical Gremlins

My Name: Arpy

Bio: Typcgraphical Gremlins lurk in the text fields of webpages and Word documents, where they take great delight in causing typists of all sorts to misspell words. One of their favorite tricks is to cause the electrical impulses from a keyboard to misfire, displaying a different character than intended. They sometimes replace letters with similar equivalents, i.e “c” for “o” and “I” for “l”. Gremlin-infested texts are not to be confused with poor spellers, though the less experienced Gremlins often bear a resemblance. The wiliest of these Peeves, the Bcss Gremlins, are adept at inserting themselves into long, dull sentences where the reader's eyes simply skip over them. Only the sharpest-eyed individuals can spot the work of these Gremlins, and even then rereading the sentence may be necessary. Typcgraphical Gremlins are extremely prolific, and due to their unobstrusive nature, their typos are rarely realized for what they are.

Description: Squat, rotund humanoids with one large, googly eye on a stalk, dark skin, and tattoos of the letters and words they have successfully inserted into unsuspecting sentences.


I quite like xccj's and ET's Peeves FWIW.

I’ll edit later with more Peeves as I discover them.

Takua the Wanderer
Nov 06 2007 09:34 PM
Pet Peeve Species: Zeus
My Name: Takua the Wanderer
Bio: A shapeshifter which takes the form of the most common myth/misconception of the day and throws its mighty lightning bolt at it. Practically everyone in S&T has at least one. I have eight.
Description: A shapeshifter with no natural form, although in all forms, it carries a lighning bolt around. In the past few months, I have seen it take the form of a dead Ignika, Matoro wearing the Ignika, and three zombie Nuva.

Pet Peeve Species: Stuffed Shirt
My Name: Takua the Wanderer
Bio: Feeds on the image of staff members being all stiff, impersonal, and upper class. A good number of the staff have these, although how effective they are remains to be seen.
Description: A stuffed shirt.

Vezon The Piraka
Nov 07 2007 02:03 AM
Pet Peeve Species: The Crelkranoid
My Name: Vezon The Piraka
Bio: Comes from an unknown world, though pretty weak, it still has it's own defense methods excluding the fact that it's covered in armor. The Crelkranoid is a very dangerous creature, it searches for rude members and keeps an eye on them like a security guard and when they catch the member arguing with another member, the Crelkranoid reports the user and BAM!... your banned. They even report members for the slightest argument. Some Crelkranoids also have IP-vision which allows them to see a member's IP Address.
Description: A short creature, but very scary. It has sharp teeth and they usually come in the color green. They have legs which run faster than four times the speed of a Kakama Nuva. They usually bring shock and stress whenever a member sees one of them.

Pet Peeve Species: Moderation Crushers
My Name: Vezon The Piraka
Bio: Merciless and powerful, the Moderation Crushers are a big threat to any staff member. Once they see a moderator using their moderation powers (they can see when a moderator moderates using a special vision they have). Like let us say you try to close a topic, but a Moderation Crusher comes. It could do so that instead of closing the topic, you turn a few non-spam posts to spam. Or if you try to delete a topic, you move it to a random forum instead. And sometimes but very rarely, instead of closing a topic, you self-suspend yourself.
Description: They are 6-foot tall creatures which can shape shift. From a good and patient member to a nasty clawed bug-like creature. They are sometimes seen wearing a Hau. (usually after battle with a Moderator)

Pet Peeve Species: Toktomee
My Name: Wyattu
Bio: This peeve is one of the Dreaded Real Life peeves, annoying the victim in more ways than one. The Toktomee disguises itself as a program which allows you to speak into a microphone and have your words turned into computer text. However, after costing you a large sum of money, it maliciously translates your words into a jumbled up mockery of a sentence. "Meet me at the movies" could become "beat three at a goopy," and so on. These creatures generally attempt to cripple BZP members by slowing down their posting speed. They apparently feed on sonic energy, text being their waste matter. I was a victim of the Toktomee for a short time, before realizing the futility of using it.
Description: A living earmike. With teeth.

Here's my entry. Love everybody's pet peeves-they're all funny, and pretty true to how things often are. tongue.gif

Pet Peeve Species: The Dreaded Piecheeseoneone Beast
My Name: Lukos Bassai
Bio: This Pet Peeve is especially dangerous because it does not appear to BE a pet peeve. It comes in the guise of being funny, and people trying to spice up their blog entries or comedies are especially prone to it. This Peeve is very contagious, and often all it takes to catch it is to see some well known member using it, even once or twice. One infected, a person will fill their posts that are meant to be funny with jokes that almost always relate to pie or cheese. Also, it tends to make their posts look noobish, and while they think they are being funny, they are actually being annoying by posting with "chatspeak." An toned down example(this is a milder example because if I copied what it actually looks like it would break the rules) is this: "Lol COOL MAN I like ninjaz too!!1111!!11piepie!CHEESE11!" While the awesome power of this pet peeve has recently been fortunately brought to a much lower level by the staff, it still lurks in dark corners of blogs and the Comedy Forum, waiting for its next innocent victim...
Description: The Dreaded Piecheeseoneone Beast is a monstrous looking creature, having three heads: one that looks like Swiss cheese, one that looks like pecan pie, and one that looks like a computer screen with chatspeak written all over it. Each of these heads has a large mouth that tries to devour as much good, wholesome humor and conversation as possible. Its body resembles a large dictionary of incorrectly spelled words.

Sounds fun to me!
Species name: The Shortenator
My name: Axinian the Chronicler
Bio: This peeve is only capable of surviving in the light, humorous air of the comedies forum. This little fellow will hide in comedies threads, watching those reading the thread. When it finds a possible host (usually new members) it will jump from the computer into their minds. It makes the harmless suggestion that the host should write their own comedy. If the host decides to do so, it then influences him/her to keep the comedy under 300 words. The host will proceed to post the comedy, which is in turn closed for lack of words. The Shortenator however, continues to influence the host to write more short comedies. This process will continue until the host is deducted in proto energy. It is then that the Shortenator is quite a happy fellow, as his favorite food is proto energy. This peeve will then leave the current host, and restart the process with another. This peeve is easily beaten by word counting programs and mild warnings. It is currently unknown exactly how physically strong this peeve is, though it is suspected to be surprisingly agile, as it has faced an angry group of Spartans multiple times and always won. I do not own this peeve, I have beaten it with a word count.
Description: Translucent blue, jellyfish like creature, that uses tendrils to latch into hosts brain.

Species name: Elasti-pic
My name: Axinian the Chronicler
Bio: Elasti-pic has the elemental power of pixels. This peeve prefers to dwell in BBC and General Art forums. It will find someone preparing to post an image, and create many pixels, then add them to the image. The unsuspecting member will them post the image in their topic, and find that it stretches the screen to twice it's normal length, and increases the loading time of said image to roughly 1.055892 eons. This peeve can be defeated by careful resizing of pictures, or linking the images instead of posting them directly. I used to own one, but he left after I figured out how to resize pictures.
Description: A grainy-looking body that moves and ripples as it relocates. The body roughly resemble a photograph of two red glowing eyes with slanted eyebrows...

Species name: The Outstandingly Annoying Block of Uncreativeness
My name: Axinian the Chronicler
Bio: This peeve is not limited to Bzpower alone, however it mainly finds prey in the forum Epics, Short Stories, and Comedies forums. Other non-forum sightings have been confirmed in various schools, novel writers' houses, the residences of speech writers, and one particularly bad one in Uncle Frank's Chicken Shack. This peeve will take host in a writer's mind, and is extremely hard to remove. Whenever the host writes, the peeve will sap the creativeness from their minds, leaving the writer banging their head against the wall trying to think of ideas. While extremely difficult to remove, this nasty fellow can be temporarily surpressed by well-thought-out book passages, creative writing techniques, and long periods in front of the computer fueled by large amounts of junk food. I own one, and it strikes nearly every time I try to write.
Description: It would be easy to mistake this fellow of a grey inanimate square block, if it wasn't for the large, Fenrakk-like teeth that it uses to maintain it's hold in the host's mind.

There they are! Yes, I had some fun with this.smile.gif

Pet Peeve Species: Blockout
My Name: Master Vahi
Bio: The Blockout is an annoying creature. It loves to type in usernames and passwords until someone is blocked out of signing in for a set period of time, then uses that screenname to spam like there's no tommorow. The only problem is that it has a habit of hiding it's spam messages in normal-looking posts, making people not notice the spam. I temporarily had one before it ran away.
Description: It is long and thin. It is also very fast and moves very fluidly, it is easy to spot though as it is bright orange.

Evil Lord Survurlode Says...



"Brave Knight Binkmeister thought he could banish me with new software. Ha! Lord Survurlode is immortal--I survived because I retained a connection with the One Refresh To Rule Them All. Sauron tried to survive in the telephone system with his One Ring--but that dastardly Frodo tossed it into Mount Dume. Sauron was lost. But the Refresh still exists, oh yes, and as long as it does, I live also, to bring my floods to the BZP forums!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode,
in a BZP interview


"Killeth them with kindness. That's what my mother taught me. So I figured, instead of trying to fight Brave Knight Binkmeister's attempt to overthrow me... I would instead give him the one thing he loves most. Bubble Wrap. Not only him, but all of his followers. BZP members once knew me as their common enemy. But now... am I just a kind old man who has free Bubble Wrap?"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"Why in the world am I calling him Brave Knight Binkmeister?! That term sounds... nice. It makes him sound like a hero! NO!!! He's my enemy! No, no, henceforth he shalt be known as 'Cowardly Scum Binkmeister'!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"Yes, my new minion, you now see the dastardly plans BZP members have--they seek to avoid my floods by getting on in the morning or the late evening, or worse, the nighttime. Sauron might have been a sleepless creature of the night, but personally I can't stand coffee. But not to worry! You, my friend, will go out and enslave the members. You will sit enthroned on their shelves, hung from their walls like a cursed mark, and wrapped around their wrists like handcuffs. Even they shalt know the constraints of time! Behold, the Evil Clock!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"What is that you sayeth, Evil Clock? BZPower is now five long years old? So what? I am thousands upon thousands of years old! I am, in fact, as old as the ocean that I command with my floods! I am even older than clocks like you! What's that? Yeah, yeah, but I just don't feel like AARP is for me..."

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"What do you mean, I'm not speaking in proper Old English? I am Lord Survurlode. If I say this is Old English, it iseth!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"What doth mine eyes spyeth? I see-eth a member attempting to posteth! No! I shalt not alloweth it! Rise, ye Floodes! Riseth! ...What? No, I ameth noteth tryingeth hardereth to speaketh Oldeth Englisheth! Ye Silly Clocke!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"No, I am NOT an April Fool's Joke! Just because my power increases tenfold on that day doesn't mean my existence depends on it."

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"Frodo? Why would I be scared of him? He sailed off to the West--it means he died, yo! Besides, the One Refresh cannot be melted in some volcano. It would take a... No, wait... Sorry, that information is classified. Muahahahaha!"

--Evil Lord Suvurlode


"The term 'Yo' can be Old English! Yeesh!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"See, my problem is that I am far older than Old English. To me it's that newfangled slang those Anglo-Saxon types speak. You'll forgive me if I get it confused with the five million different versions that came out since then. Yes, you will. Or else."

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"..."

--Evil Lord Survurlode's
Kopeke Impression


"What do you mean, it's really 'Mount Doomah?!'"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"You are getting veeery sleepy. You need more Bubble Wrap. That's right, little member. Wallow in bubble wrap forever. Say it with me now. 'Must. Have. More.'"

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"Brave Knight--I mean, Cowardly Sponge Binkmeister has attempted to attacketh me once again! But lo, I am-- What? Sponge? Is that what I said? I meant Scum. Brave Scum Binkmeister-- What now? Oh, be quiet, minion."

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"No, I am not a girl!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode,
on his power over water


"Muahahahahahahahaha*cough* *hack* *gurgle* ..... *ahem* Must remember to watch the evil laugh when the floodwaters get that high..."

--Evil Lord Survurlode


"Oh, that's an easy question. See, Sauron's One Telephone Ring looked like a metal ring, right? Well, the One Refresh looks like a ring made out of those green arrows... like on that refresh button up there. Wait... why am I telling you this?!"

--Evil Lord Survurlode,
in a BZP interview


"No, I do not get rusty! This is Stainless Steel! What? Yes, yes! They had stainless steel thousands of years ago. Yeesh."

--Evil Lord Survurlode

Profundities

"While it's all well and good for someone to turn the other cheek in daily life, in times of great hardship another thought comes to mind instead; namely that one cannot turn a blind eye to the actions of evil and still call himself good."
---Nako



"This is a discussion forum for a reason; it's a place where opinions can be discussed and debated civilly, not where one person can claim their opinion as fact and all others as "just opinions." Every person should, however, support their opinions with facts and evidence of all kinds."




"'The challenge of being a Biological chronicler is understanding why Lego are using another method to sell better. It gets boring using the same ones all the time. Variety is the spice of selling, after all.'
— A Biological chronicler"



"I could convince a thousand people that the moon is made of cheese... and yet it would remain as rocky as ever."



"This is simple, people! If it hurts to hit yourself with a hammer, then don't do it!"



"A famous drummer sits down to do a drum solo, but he has to keep his solo up for five minutes. Does he do all his amazing stuff first? no! If he did that, he would loose all attention because the end would be so boring. If he were smart, he would start out with something simple, and then add to its complexity as he goes along, so that more people would be into it.

The point is, writing either a drum solo, or is like a mountain, the bigger the base, the higher it can get, and the more amazing it is. Think about it, when building a mountain of dirt or sand, you need to slowly create your huge base, then as you build towards the peak things get faster and easier to pile on. The High points are where the story is fast paced and we are reaching the climax--what we just left on the last mountain of story we had (the MU story arch), and now Greg is building a new story mountain for us."

Logic is the key.


QUOTE
I am insane. I know that I am insane. In fact, I know that I am so insane, that I am incapable of realizing that I am insane. Therefore, I know that I am not insane.


QUOTE
Forgetting things since.... umm....


QUOTE
Creativity should not be confused with nuclear weapons.


QUOTE
I heart logic.


QUOTE
Only dead things do not change. Much.


QUOTE
Pay attention now. Repeat after me. "Bones. Can. Be. Wrong."


QUOTE
The problem is, "Tradition for tradition's sake" is like flying blind in an airplane. It's like saying as you approach a mountain "But we've always flown in this direction before... why would we change direction? It isn't the tradition!"


QUOTE
Remember that -- clever absurdity, designed to harmonize with certain tastes, is the key to originality.


QUOTE
Ironicles.


QUOTE
People are like snowflakes. No two are the same.


QUOTE
Yes, the Toa will win somehow. But let me give you a challenge. Write a story. In which the good guys win, or the bad guys win, doesn't matter. But write it with only introducing the challenges that the winner must overcome, and avoid showing how the winner wins. Just set up the problem, then skip to the end:

"In the end, this character wins, somehow."

Now, do you think this is a successful format for a story, that anybody would really want to read? [...] Readers demand that you as writer have thought through the "how" of the story.


QUOTE
Where is this idea coming from?


QUOTE

QUOTE
[L]et's not mince words here -- all LEGO products are toys. It's a toy company, in the toy business. There's nothing wrong with that.


QUOTE
[A] wise Daoist once said that a name is merely a label. If a person calls me a "nerd", then that is their label for me. If a person calls me a "human", that is a label. If they call me "bonesiii", that is a label. I would simply reply that, if "nerd" is the term they wish to apply to me, like "human", then so be it -- I would thus be proud of that label, because I am proud of who I am.


QUOTE
I'm not telepathic.


QUOTE
I don't know if this is just the way I'm wired, but I don't really think like "hey, wanna be my friend?" I just be myself, treat others with respect and friendliness, and those who would make good friends just sorta show up. And I really don't think like "well, you're not my friend, you are, you aren't" etc. Anybody can be my friend.

Bionicle doesn't revolve around ANY one fan. Not even you.

Besides, show me a brown rock, and I'll use your logic on you. "That's not a rock, it's hardened lava."

The best symbol of stone would be gray. But it would probably sell almost as bad as brown -- LEGO needed a "flashy" color, more like what Ta, Ga, and Le Toa have.

Can you imagine MNOG ending with the Turaga and Matoran executing Ahkmou?


QUOTE
So here's the question: If LEGO working harder by listening to fans is "lazy", then wouldn't they be "lazy" if they listened to you -- a fan?


QUOTE
You don't need to hate to say it.


QUOTE
Four extra letters. "Bionicle sets." How hard is that?

Actually, three extra letters since the s just moves.


QUOTE
If they are "Bionicles", then you are "History".

Of course it's cruel -- did you think bad guys were Mother Teresa?

Brevity is the soul.


QUOTE
Which I suppose is a fancy way of saying, "I have no idea."


QUOTE
I attack my own theories. I'm weird like that.


QUOTE
If only books could be updated like web pages.


QUOTE
Bionicle was supposedly a betrayal of everything LEGO stands for, its pieces far too clunky, a horrible turn away from the more "intelligent" Technic and a total stabbing in the back of the good old brick, an insult to AFOLS, evidence of a mythical trend away from the construction toy, far too violent, etc.


QUOTE
It's really pretty simple:

Gadunka is one of the "coolest" sets ever. Most inventive, most unusual, most striking. Thus, he is horrible.


QUOTE
Of course they're weird. All Bionicle names are supposed to be weird. Show me the Bionicle name that is "normal".


QUOTE
You just completely contradicted yourself. If Mata Nui was working out great, then wouldn't Metru Nui have made less money?



QUOTE
If that's greedy, then you are greedy for driving in a car to get somewhere far away fast, for wearing shoes so you can walk at a reasonable pace without cutting your feet, using silverware to better eat your food, using a telephone to avoid having to make a trip and speak, using a computer to type a forum post when you could walk personally to everybody's house and speak what you just said over and over and over again.... At least 2000 times to account for all the possible active BZP members, and preferably about five million times -- and you'd have to go door to door throughout the whole world to even figure out which people were Bionicle fans anyways before you started confusing monks in Tibet with strange words like "Kongu" and "Cordak". All within your own lifetime, regardless of whatever else you had wanted to do in your life.

And forget speech. You have to scratch out the message with your fingernails in stone. Then maybe you wouldn't be greedy. Maybe.



QUOTE
Nobody would surprise me, so it's probably Makuta. But I went with Hydraxon, because he's a weapons master and it would make sense, no?


QUOTE
Why didn't I think of that earlier?


QUOTE
I don't just ask rhetorical questions -- I answer them.


QUOTE
I knew you'd say that.


QUOTE
You're a body with a head. So what?

QUOTE
I hate typing Roman numerals above three.


QUOTE
I always find these topics funny -- everybody goes in circles, pointing to the exact same aspect of the set and going "See that? So it's obvious it's horrible! How can you not see that?", and then someone else saying, "See that? It's obvious it's awesome! How can you not see that?"


QUOTE
Obviously, not everybody sees I to I.


QUOTE
They have their uses -- like if you're making a MOC that's supposed to be a light green faceless humanoid.


QUOTE
I hate it when I can't tell if someone's joking.


QUOTE
Yes, that's an excuse to be lazy.


QUOTE
Hold on just a second. I think you have things backwards. Mata Nui was not paradise -- it was a place of horror and war for a thousand years!


QUOTE
Lol.


QUOTE
I'm a logician. I can tell you that your argument does not merely sound illogical. It is.


QUOTE
Yeah, that'd be bad. Next question?


QUOTE
We'd still have wooden ducks, no plastic bricks, and definately no LEGO if change was prevented. Really, we wouldn't even have that.


QUOTE
It is unfortunate that it's this way (at least for us). But it is. We might as well come to grips with it.


QUOTE
And I walk away in peace.


QUOTE
You have no idea how many times I've read this style of opening to this kind of topic, man. I must admit I am very very tired of it.

*deeeeep breath*

*shakes head madly*

Okay, I'm good.


QUOTE
My memory doesn't go back that far.


QUOTE
If I didn't agree with something, I'd try to find out the reasons for it before doing anything else, which is something I think some people forget to do and instead they dig themselves a hole for no reason.


QUOTE
Lol, I think you missed the point -- BR isn't going to think your forum deserves approval if he has to be told it exists.


QUOTE
I'm a coolomaniac.


QUOTE
But I like spam!
Wait...


QUOTE
This is not a country. This is a website. Countries are led by governments. Websites are owned by owners. Countries are places you physically exist in, and may have difficulty leaving. Websites are places YOU choose to go. Countries are places you may be born in, or grow up in, etc.

BZPower is a place YOU sign an agreement in order to join. Blame cannot be placed on us when a member violates that agreement. And if a member chooses not to like that agreement anymore, they are free to leave at will. If a member violates the agreement they made with us, we are justified in punishing the member as agreed.


QUOTE
I'm a logician -- I think in terms of what makes sense all the time. I don't just agree -- I know why I agree, and I think my reasons are pretty sound.


QUOTE
If I'm breaking a rule, it's because I gave myself permission to allow myself an exception, thus I am not technically breaking it.


QUOTE
[A]lthough Evil Lord Survurlode does seem to be making a bit of a comeback, just like Sauron, so we might have an epic war that will spawn a novel and three giant books of a trilogy soon... but yeah...

I object to the wording of this question.

Take an election between two candidates. Obviously, both candidates will get votes. However, one will get more votes, and one will get less. You would be, in this example, voting for the one with less votes (Mr. Olderfanson). You see why the fact that you, one person, did vote for that guy, doesn't prove that he won the election? [...] "Mr. Newerfanson" won the election.


QUOTE

QUOTE
In general, I do enjoy debates--but I don't enjoy being flamed, no. Nor do I enjoy wasting time when I have tons of PMs I need to reply to and top secret reference projects to work on and all that responding to things that could have been cleared up with more thought before posting, heh. Debates can still get tedious when it seems (please note "seems"!) that a few people refuse to approach them with an open mind.

Lol. I never said I'm always right! Yeesh, what do I have to do to convince you guys I don't think that? Purposefully take wrong positions or something?


QUOTE
Guess what? I could draw before I learned to write, but does that mean I should get all huffy and insulted at the fact that not everybody shares my particular talent? This is just absurd, isn't it? Did you honestly think that everybody has the same talents and gains proficiency at the same time?

Can we sing kumbaya yet? Sing it! Koooooooo----oom---bah-----yaaaaaaaaahhhhhh.

Or something... Sing it! You don't even have to agree with me! Just sing it anyways, maaan!

Sing!


QUOTE
Your mistake is that you are thinking in terms of a simplistic "formula" of strength, and thinking that can be used to predict everything. It can't--every situation is different, and sometimes a weak Matoran might catch a glimpse of a passing Rahkshi while a powerful "Toa Ultimaultrasuper" might get blasted to bits when the same Rahkshi actually attacks. You need to be realistic--think in terms of the situation. Stories are based on that--they are a "game of seconds and inches" where dangers both big and small can occur to both powerful and weak people, and how you perform depends on your brains and the time you have to prepare more than your actual power level.

You can make any innovation look bad if you point to the non-innovative ways (the old "normal" ways) and claim they must be followed blindly.


QUOTE
But what I don't get about it is -- why the apparent desire to kill characters off for no reason? In real life you meet tons of people who you will never meet again, and they're not dead. Is that to you a problem? I don't get it -- you'd go insane if you tried to stay in touch with every random old lady that said hi when you were walking the dog...

Yes, my post in this topic is product placement. So sue me.

In addition, high gravity affects spacetime on a fundamental level, slowing time down and bending the spatial brane. Not to be confused with the spacious brain.


QUOTE
It would create a field of electrogravimetry that would pull all nearby matter in and then make it explode. The explosion cloud would take the form of an anchovy.

There's only a slim chance that we exist.

I love taking myself out of context.


QUOTE
I think it's admirable to be careful not to offend people where it makes sense. But at some point, you have to be willing to stand up for yourself and be confident enough that if someone comes at you with an unreasonable accusation, you don't take it.


QUOTE
I think aliens invaded already and have fooled us into thinking they are mere animals who "meow".


QUOTE
Good stories aren't puppet shows. They are tales of life, with realistic characters -- people -- living out their lives, with really minimal "guiding" by the author.


QUOTE
Oh goody, a complainer to blast to oblivion.


QUOTE
To begin with, I disagree strongly with pretending it is "killing off", rather than a serious story being told, with serious themes and life in the story. Characters aren't "killed off". They die.

I find this term somewhat offensive, because it implies the writer kills the character like a TV show host telling a contestant to leave. This is not a game show. It is the events of the storyline that kill the character. That term is merely a psychological shield to avoid the emotion of the moment in the story. IMO, that's a kind of immaturity.


QUOTE
Um.


QUOTE
You can't always get what you want "now now now". Your logic makes no sense -- if you want to know what's in the books, that means you support the books' existence. Yet you apparently want spoilers to go up the day it's out, so in the countries where it is bought, people could just read the spoilers and not buy the book, risking its sales going down and the books ending, and thus no more spoilers for you to read!


QUOTE
Truth = Truth. And nothing else.


QUOTE
I had spammed ten thousand times.


QUOTE
A good comedy is a development, like a story, not a punchline. You start with a situation, and it goes in unexpected, funny ways, which leads into other twists, to a conclusion that often can be more serious than funny, avoiding random cliches and developing enough logic that it doesn't feel like you slapped random nonsense down. Comedies Forum has this bad rap of having a lot of Unfunny Stuff -- I think it's the temptation to write short punchlines drawing on typical one-liner cliches that causes this. The 300 word rule is a good basic start to avoiding that problem.

Dude. My voting precint is a "23". ph34r.gif


QUOTE
And what people are saying about randomosity is true -- I hope that it's not surprising that as a logician, I understand how to be funny (though I won't try in this post ). Logic isn't for Spock who refuses to smile -- you actually need logic in your comedy to make it funny. In my experience, a balance of logic and random nonsense helps -- even logic OF the random nonsense.


QUOTE
I highly recommendate it.


QUOTE
Another mistake a lot of people make is thinking a comedy must be 100% funny -- reality is that that tends to just overwhelm the reader and come off more as spam. If you look at my Survurlode interviews, for example, there is always at least one serious theme that the whole work revolves around. The serious aspects support the humorous, and vice versa.


QUOTE
*strongly approves of the use of the term "bionical"*


QUOTE
Well, my observation has always been the opposite -- more established official facts inspires MORE fan imagination -- at least with imaginative official facts. It was really only once the "gappists" starting complaining, in my observation as a 2003+ member here, about "tons of official facts" that I saw the fanfiction community here really explode with creativity.

Think about it -- imagination feuls imagination. Less imagination doesn't -- it starves imagination.

How much wood would a woodwood wood if a woodwood would would wood?


QUOTE
But my point related to that isn't that I literally think it should be FULLY sun-sized. I'm just saying, there's a whole range, from a little larger than Earth, to a LOT larger, to a TONTONZILLION larger, and it's all possible if the story team just feels like it.

GD is NOT for storyline-only discussion. That discussion belongs in S&T.

Sure I'm sure -- it's Bionicle. Anything's possible.


QUOTE
I never understand these claims -- how do you know what "proportionate" is for that character? He's a fictional character, made out of plastic LEGO parts.

So why get annoyed at it? When you look at a giraffe, do you get annoyed? It makes no sense to me to do so.

Besides, you're setting yourself up for it. Nobody ever told you these characters were supposed to be exactly human.

If you look at an ape, would you say it's done wrong, just because it resembles a human?

I plan not to, but I guess if the site shut down I'd kinda have to, wouldn't I?


QUOTE
...they usually give their jokes when they have the upper hand at the moment, though, or when they've just run into a frustrating difficulty that's not immediately dangerous, which are realistic IMO. When they're in immediate danger, I am not aware that they pause to crack jokes.


QUOTE
I strongly disagree -- everybody capitalizes their name. It's cliche.

(I do not capitalize because 1) I hate being cliche, and 2) it is symbolic of humility.)


QUOTE
I knew you'd say that.


QUOTE
Seriously though, obviously the focus groups like silver, guys -- there's no mystery, those of you portraying it as odd that LEGO keeps using the color. This is how personal taste works -- it differs, and you're gonna find yourself in the minority sometimes. Best get used to it -- that's life.

I heart silver. My favorite metallic. If I had my way, gold would be considered lesser than silver.


QUOTE
The red eye thing is the closest thing you have to evidence, but I could argue that Berix is the traitor for spending time away from the villages, or Ackar is the traitor because his name sounds like Admiral Ackbar and there was a traitor in Star Wars called Darth Vader.


QUOTE
Ultimately it comes down to this for me -- YOU choose to dissapointed or miserable.

If you expected the universe to be perfect, that was your choice, and really not very sensible of you.


QUOTE
If I as a writer were to try to appeal to the attitude you express in your post, I would feel like I am constantly walking on eggshells. Everytime I had a cool idea how to use a character, or more importantly logic told me the character naturally would be involved in something, I would have to worry about whether I shouldn't do it as it might offend someone.

That's a miserable way to write, and I wouldn't wish that on the story team, myself, or anyone.

QUOTE
But one thing. Everyone expects something when they do something.


Very true. For example, when I posted the above post, I expected somebody to reward me with this point, giving me an excuse to discuss it in a separate post so as to give it better focus.


QUOTE
Therefore, the more "things to expect" from a "donation or whatever the heck you want to call it", the more likely we get mooooolaaaaaaaa. Therefore good.

QUOTE
I don't see what the anology has to do with this. "Chevys" (or "Chevies") makes sense. Like "Keets" or Morby or my personal favorite for Makuta -- Terry Mack. "Biological Chronicles" referring to beings makes no sense. And as I typed this, a Chevy ad came on TV. They called it "Chevy." Seriously, exact same time.

Oh my, you're completely irrelevant metaphor makes you look sooo intelligent.


This is obviously getting out of hand, so I guess I have to close it. Also, you failed to answer my question. When a moderator asks you a question, answer it. Capisce? wink.gif

Please do not attack people like that. That is flaming, or at best trolling, both of which are not allowed.

4) Proto.

No matter how you slice it, sending in that money is NOT just buying proto. Even if proto is all they want, they're still buying YOUR right to be on here for free. Yall should be grateful.
