Ten Days

Posted by Sumiki , in BZPower, MOCing Feb 19 2012 · 40 views

So yeah. Ten days left to enter Blogarithm Contest #4: Fresh Salad!

In two months we've gotten ... one entry. One.

If this doesn't change soon, I may have to cancel it.

Don't make me have to do that.

Please.

The BΖРṘРĠ

After what seems like a decade of planning, I've finally become active in it.

Now I will proceed to terrorize the forum along with Brickeens and VampireBohrok. :)

Getting Back To The Archive Without Logging Out

Posted by Sumiki , in BZPower Feb 05 2012 · 43 views

Up until this point, the only way to access the archive without having to log back into the active forums was via another browser, as was posted by Lewa0111. I have found that if you turn cookies off in your browser, you can browse back and forth between archive and forum without the hassles of logging out.

Don't know if this is news to anyone, but I just came across this solution.

Potential BΖР Contest Reform

Posted by Sumiki , in Contests, BZPower Jan 15 2012 · 107 views

Folks, I am pro-contest. How else would I host the bizarre Blogarithm Contest #4? (Which totally needs entries by the way. Fruits are being neglected!)

But this entry does not regard that. It's an idea that has been banging around in my head for a while, but I think it's about time I proposed it to BZPower in general.

Different forums have different problems when it comes to contests. Art Contests, rare as they are (anthropologists have not yet confirmed the last one), seem to be plagued by an issue of theme, divisions, and how to execute it. It's always been this way, and as such ACs have a hard time getting off the ground. SBC, the forum formerly known as LGD, used to be afflicted with such an ailment, but the recent SBC Contest #1 seems to herald, hopefully, a sea change in the forum.

BBC Contests are a different matter altogether. The BBC folks have no problem coming up with themes, and that, to me, is the issue. Within the contests retainable in the logs of recent memory, the themes have been, for lack of a better term, hit-and-miss. The 80's theme and the rock-music theme were especially esoteric and memorable for their obscure subject matter.

So, is there a way to combat an issue that manifests itself in various forums as equally various problems?

Have a contest in every forum with the same theme.

An example: SBCC1 had a great theme. That theme could have easily been adapted to BBC or GA. The right theme is crucial, since some contests are more adaptable to BBC/SBC, and others work in Art and no place else.

Still, I would like to see something like this happen, at least once, happen on BZPower. The coordinating difficulties might be massive, but the end result would be quite interesting and fun. :)

I'm The Boss

Posted by Sumiki , in BZPower Dec 27 2011 · 40 views

So, apparently, I, of all people, have been selected as the second boss in this thing called Bionifight 4.

I did a quick scan of the important-looking posts in the topic, and all I can say is this: I feel overmatched already. :P

Ah well. 'Twill be fun.

SЅⅭ8 People's Choice Poll!

Posted by Sumiki , in BIONICLE/LEGO, BZPower, Contests Dec 11 2011 · 68 views

My SSC8 entry, "All Our Sins Remembered" was one of six entries to make it to the People's Choice Poll! This is my first SS contest, with only my second published BZP SS, and as far along as I've ever made it in a BZPower contest. I'm very excited to have gotten this far! :D

I encourage you to vote for the best entry, whether you believe it to be mine or another entry. :)

May the best writer win! ^_^

This Whole "ḶΕĠΟ Minecraft" Business

Posted by Sumiki , in BZPower, BIONICLE/LEGO Dec 07 2011 · 72 views

I don't care one way or another about a potential line/sets of this nature, but what I really don't get is why some members are so dead-set against the notion.

If you don't like a line, don't complain about it to other people who can't/won't do anything about it - just don't purchase those sets.

Yes. It's really that simple.

I have not seen such backlash against a line since BIONICLE's sets got axed, and while it's on a considerably smaller scale, I don't understand it.

Let's be realistic, folks. It was never a rule of Cuusoo to automatically put an idea into production if said idea got 10,000 supporters. Ten thousand is a heck of a lot of people, but even if they bought two of every set they supported, where would that leave LEGO? In the red. You see, Cuusoo is just a way to judge popularity. If it's popular, then LEGO reviews it, then puts it into production. The review step is one that seems to get lost in translation. It seems to me that a lot of members who didn't like the notion saw "LEGO Minecraft" on the front page and immediately turned the bash knob up to eleven. But even then, a lot of people don't like it - who know that there is a review process to go through (not to mention licensing issues in this case) - end up getting deathly afraid that LEGO Minecraft sets might happen. Gasp, shock, horror.

This is not a rant against the haters of a potential line, nor is it an endorsement for the seeming minority who support its inception. I really just don't get why people are getting worked into a tizzy over it, because in my mind, it's really not that big of a deal.

So, I ask you, supporters or haters of LEGO Minecraft:

Why do you, or do you not, like it?

Well, folks, I finally got it done. One mad day of writing until 1:30 in the morning, then weeks of editing to get it as good as I think I can make it.

If you learn one thing in life, learn this:

You should never, ever question why demons would possess a soda.

just a heads up - Cthulhu would probably eradicate mankind before bringing back Bionicle

so yeah, all I'm saying is, please think twice about this okay

nothing gets democracy flowing like erratic capitalizatION

[the NSA] couldn't say no when I offered them an ostrich farm in exchange

Sumiki -- nice try but we all know Toa Mata Nui stuffs its bra




You have a great understanding of history, but don't forget, war, murder and other poor decisions are also huge characteristics.

Also a long line of really great hats.

Shhh, I'm trying to focus on the negative to justify my dislike of history.

have we mentioned hats

To be fair, I am the one responsible for the invention of Mafia in the 1320s by seventeen bored italians locked in a mine shaft.

It's a long story.
