A hint of things to come

I'll just let that sit with you all and confuse you for the next few weeks while I work on things behind the scenes.

Regarding Raffles

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZPower Dec 10 2014 · 81 views

When there's more than one prize (for simplicity, let's say there are two) in a raffle... could the same member theoretically win every prize in that raffle?
That'd be some seriously miraculous number crunching

Go and vote!

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZPower Dec 02 2014 · 84 views

The new youtube banner contest voting has opened, so you should all go and vote! Of course, I must advise that voting Entry 5 would be the wisest option, but really, whatever wins is going to be plastered across social media, so... select whichever entry you think represents both Bionicle and BZPower best.

I'm gonna be honest

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZP Library, Life, BZPower, Games & Trivia Nov 26 2014 · 100 views

I started working in a call center on October 20th (well, training, at least. I started on the floor two weeks later). I appear to be at least half-decent at the job - I'm an inbound CSR for things like home heating, cooling, sometimes plumbing + drains, sometimes water heaters, sometimes other things. Most of my newbie teammates get spoken to about their lack of sales or quality on a daily basis (or still don't know what they're doing) while I, in contrast, have been told once or twice that I am "doing alright".

I am okay with this. I'm averaging one sale a day and that seems to keep people off my back.

BUT.

I have been dealing with more stupid people these past few weeks than ever before in my life, and I have noticed it leaking (well, more like flooding) into my interactions everywhere else. While at home it is easy to avoid (I can just go into my room, after all) and it's easy to bottle it in at the YMCA (since I'm only there for 1-2 hours at a time anyway), I have noticed that's having an effect on me with regards to BZP - so if I've seemed overly harsh or whatever, I do apologize. They say that the first step to fixing a problem is to admit that you have one? So I will be doing my best to solve this.

This plays into the whole "I have too much on my plate" right now; I started this job, did NaNo, hosted Mafia XVIII, posted Book 2, started planning + writing Extermination, hosted Mafia XIX, hosted Bionifight, organized a variety of projects with different members, and started planning for future IRL stuff too (which would take too long to get into with this entry). So I'm doing my best to scale back, and hopefully that will help. In the meantime, I shall try to not let this newly negative-ized attitude of mine continue (or at least not let it continue affecting interactions here).

In other news, my boss at the YMCA might be looking for a "team lead" person for the days/nights that she's not in to sort of take on her role; I'm really hoping that I can claim that position, because it might give me enough hours to warrant leaving the call center. Plus, I've always enjoyed (and subsequently done better with) positions of responsibility like that. :)

Anyway that's my whole "insight into life" post for tonight. Looking back, I realize that I said I was going to start doing posts like this on a weekly/monthly basis but kind of stopped. Oh well.

That rank image is never there

And the profile link goes to Black Six

Plus the "add a friend option" became re-enabled for me and popped up for Luroka too

Those 17,000 profile views clearly broke his account

AMA?

Posted by CHRIS PRATT , in BZPower Nov 04 2014 · 180 views

I was wondering if I did an AMA specifically regarding the Mafia Epics series (or by extension I suppose the Mafia games that I've hosted), would people be interested? This wouldn't be for those random, absurd questions people always ask, it'd be to answer legitimate questions you have, to satisfy curiosity about actual decisions I made or things that happened.

So... interest level? Yes/no?

Remember when...

You could see which forum you were most active in on your profile? I wonder why that feature vanished.

Also, do you remember when your profile (I think it was the profile) told you your average # of posts per day?

Yeah, those were cool stuffs.

We're not teaching university science classes here, we're playing a text based fighting game where the objective is to beat your opponents into oblivion.

Get back in your grave, you.

*Slaps with tombstone*

Also, what pay are you gonna get as iBrow's slave?

Chro suddenly developed arachnophobia.

explain it with a convoluted quadruple negative.

Although everyone should go sign up for that game now.
And tell your friends.
And your moms.
Maybe not that last bit.

Poor Lhikan. Demoted from riding on top of an awesome Rahi to being packed in with a bunch of batteries as an afterthought.

However, this does not mean we no longer want to kill the rest of you for evading death. In fact, we would like to destroy you all, because we feel like it and we're the bad guys, the latter of which we only just realised.

...You guys didn't realize we were the villains all along?

You thought I was a good guy? ? ?

None of us are actually competent. We run around like headless chickens, if headless chickens were capable of wielding assault rifles and broadswords.

Man
I'm gonna bluff you guys so hard you won't even know that I'm bluffing
Or maybe you will
Except
It'll be a quadruple bluff



How is Chro's arms still on fire though? I bet Burnmad has something to do with it.

It's linked to Voltex's everlasting, endless fury.
