The first one is a bookie,
The pet cat is a rookie,
The dog's son is a wookie,
Their blogs are an oddity.
People come from town and city
To see their magnanimity.

We're marvel at the power
Of Dokuma's Family.
In the meantime:
existing as a fact; not imagined or made up; actual;true
The suffix "ity" is defined as:
(suffix forming nouns from adjectives) The condition, quality, or fact of being
Thus, the logical conclusion defining the amalgam of these two units of language is "the condition of existing as a fact".
To explain where Robo misused the world "reality" is in his RPG, Reality. First of all, the name of the RPG itself is a misnomer. It would not be out of place on a self-help book, but this title is attached to an RPG about a fictional world, which is imagined and made up. The second flaw is where he formally introduces the incorrect meaning of reality in the first post:
Whenever and wherever you can imagine, a Reality existed. In side of a Reality is an uncountable number of Dimensions...
Reality certainly exists. However, this makes Reality out to be a place, where within lies a number of dimensions. Instead of understanding reality as condition, it is misinterpreted as "a realm in which dimensions of a certain consistency are capable of existing." In other words, "location". One person can travel from on Reality to the next. It would be more preferable and more precise if he had instead replaced the title "Reality" with the word "Consistency" or "Continuum", or if he had made up a new word for the concept he had in mind.
I hope this has provided clarity.
Live long and prosper.
They are the people who have sacrificed themselves for the good of the site, always having good things to say and always filling people with their wisdom. Nothing that they ever say is on the level that everybody else does. They are selfless, always thinking of others, and never do anything wrong on this site.
Believe it or not, for as exaggerated as that sounds, it's actually what I thought. Now that I'm an orange orangutan, though, I see things from a different light.
Oranges do make mistakes.
When EmperorWhenua first reminded me of that, that they were just as good as everyone else, I thought it was just a little piece of poetry. Sure, I saw one POBZPC flat out break the no politics rule as bluntly as one could do so, but I still thought that they generally always had a higher moral caliber than the rest of us.
Now I am in their shoes. You know how I feel? Not too special. I'm orange, and I have made mistakes. Just look down about three blog entries and you will see what I mean. Even though I edited that entry, I still feel that I lost a lot of dignity over it. In the end, I feel more like a newbie than ever before. The whole "I'm the Newb POBZPC" banner doesn't seem all that out of place, really.
What's more, the only reason I am orange is because a true orange crusader bought me a premier membership. Twice. That counts for four proto. Of the five proto it took me to fill my bar, only one was actually out of anything good I did. Apparently my blog pleased bonesiii. Honestly, though, I didn't do much to get here. I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of other people have similar stories. EmperorWhenua once also told me that a lot of people have basically bought their proto, which doesn't say much for their character.
For those who have less than half a bar of proto, their missing pieces are usually due to single incidents. It happens with me all the time in real life. I can work all year in school to be good and, out of one bad conversation with someone, be suspended for the rest of the year. What you can spend forever building can be torn down in a day. It doesn't take much. Same case with those lacking proto. Certainly, you can make a generalized conclusion, like a person who has zero proto has had a bad history, but these individuals are nothing to look down upon. They could just as easily be me. Fate just had a different place for me.
What it all comes down to, the proto energy bar does not define one's character. It does not even define one's reputation, unless you let it. All members are equal, as far as I am concerned. I am glad I can respect that fact now.
I have to thank EmperorWhenua. I told him that I would be renewing my premier membership (and thus becoming orange) over the summer around my birthday. Personally, I wanted to do it by myself so I could feel really good about myself. I didn't want any help. Yet, he has saved me a bit of money, so I won't be quite as stressed with buying this summer's sets. Yet, dangit, I really wasn't expecting this.
So thank you, EmperorWhenua; I will never forgive you. Bless you and curse you.
There will be NO exceptions here.
How hard is it to understand that "NO exceptions" means "NO exceptions"? Yet, often times people do think that there are exceptions.
I have seen it plenty of times when someone might respond to something in the Immediate Association Topic with the name of a president. Granted, people don't have the time to retaliate to it because of the speed of the topic, but it still remains there. I have seen it when someone will say something negative towards a political group, religion, or nationality and try to soften it by adding something along the lines of "but that's just me". On and off, if you look, you will see that the rules are broken in the BZP underworld.
Even if nobody retaliates, it doesn't mean that a particular comment is acceptable. Although perhaps flame wars don't always get started right away, offensive or suggestive comments can still leave certain observers offended, whether mildly or critically.
To the people who make these kind of posts, they usually don't think much of it. Once the posts are published, and if no immediate action or recognition is taken place, they will think that such behavior is acceptable. If they get away with it one time, they will think that they can push the envelope further. This has the potential to lead to a flame war, and the worst part is that the participants will think that it is okay.
Flame wars are forbidden because the staff does not want anyone to be offended and hurt by the words and attitudes of another person. It takes away from the light atmosphere that BZP is meant to be, a place where one can freely discuss their opinions and tastes on Bionicle. The friendliness of the community is meant to be carried on to the CoT forum, and it usually is. However, whenever a flame war arises, the strong bond between BZPers is broken. Even if one comment does not take things to further heights, it alone can still do damage. No one deserves to be insulted on this island we call BZP.
In short, we should not post offensive material. The rules state their policy on flame so simply, and there is no excuse for not following them. The smallest offenses, even if you can get away with them, are as wrong as major ones.
Emperor Kraggh - "If elected, I promise to return you to a classical era!"
St. Kraggh - Well, my name in art is St. John, which you would know if you read my Glaedr blog entry, and the title is a unique one for a BZP name.
Bones Jr. - Don't worry, I got permission from Bonesiii first. For some reason, all he said was "sure" and used the tongue smiley.
The Altruist - I should hope you'd know why I decided to consider this one.
