Counted official topic request PMs (some not counted): 67
And that's going back to when I was a Forum Assistant and couldn't even approve/deny them.

PM boxes are ready to have messages once again, but I still have many PMs to delete. Don't everyone PM me all at once. tongue.gif

I'm not gonna lie; it's not easy to leave something you've done for many years (though I've done this type of thing more than once this year). How I view things on BZPower now are so different than how I used to see them. I spent several months as a Forum Assistant and roughly the last year-and-a-half as a Global Moderator, so I developed a knack for seeing oversize images or ones that take longer than they should to load. Let's just say it was borderline paranoia sometimes to see images and almost instinctively know they were over any of the limits.

Habits are hard to break. Bad habits are harder to break.

I Have An Announcement!

Posted by Toaraga , Nov 02 2009 · 35 views
What Was That?
I've decided to announce that I'm going to call a press conference to announce my decision to announce my announcement at the press conference. Therein, I shall make my announcement about my decision announced. After my announcement, I shall open the floor to questions, but only after you announce that your going to ask them at your own press conference.

That is all.

Messenger Full!

If anyone wants to trying PMing me, my messages are currently full. But I shall try to alleviate that soon... and no, I'm not planning to archive the messages (unless it comes down to that), as I really don't need many of the messages anymore, considering they are no longer applicable. happy.gif

Hmm, I guess I should change my blog name to make it less ironic.

and 1 more...
It's back to working overnights at Toys 'R Us again and trying to get non-work related stuff done at other times. I actually started back Tuesday, but this shall continue until after Christmas. It'll take a bit of time to adjust to a wonky schedule though, but I'm happy this way. Tired but happy. smile.gif

Why is the left wire shorter than the right on some pairs? There's not enough slack on one side or too much on the other. dry.gif

Blog Entry: This space is to catalogue all the staff of LEGO (and affiliates) that have joined the ranks of BZP. (These are in order of Join Date.)

Swiftone: I'm not sure what he does, but he works for LEGO. In his words: "I'm a writer here. Pretty much the same job description as Greg, but my focus is on Knights' Kingdom while his is on Bionicle."

GregF: Greg Farshtey- Current book author and comic book writer of our beloved BIONICLE, Knights' Kingdom, and other LEGO series. He is also the go-to guy when you need questions answered about the storyline.

Binkmeister: Kelly McKiernan- Former Admin of BZPower, he is currently filling the role of BIONICLE.com Webmaster while Leah is on maternity leave.

Brickgirl: Leah Weston- Senior Producer, LEGO Virtual: she is the webmaster for the BIONICLE and LEGO Factory sites.

poetryinmotion: Lee- "Among his accomplishments he is an adult fan of LEGO, a former employee of the LEGO Company, and is a solid supporter of the Bionicle line."

I don't think I've missed anyone, but if I have or made any errors, feel free to let me know, and I'll correct it as soon as possible. Just because Binkmeister's a LEGO Ambassador, it doesn't mean he needs a spot: he runs this site, after all. happy.gif

Thanks go to Kahu Rider 13, Clark Kent, Sidorak, Turaga Dlakii, Sumiki for the helpful info.

Stars? Are We That Young?

So why does the rating system use stars? Looking at those things, I feel like a little kid... we need something more BIONICLE-y.
