The anniversary of BZPower's founding has finally arrived! It's quite a special day, I'm sure, for many of us; personally, I'm being flooded with memories of when I first discovered this site back in the summer of 2008. I'm looking forward to many more years of an active community here.

I can also be found under the username Azani on SolisMagna.com and the BioMediaProject forums. Check out SolisMagna.com, as it is exactly what we need to maintain interest in Bionicle. Also, I highly recommend Check out the script for Mysterious Island, an adaption/reboot of the 2001 Bionicle story which I am writing. It's also a musical.

 
Bionicle is returning in 2015!

So happy to see BZPower going after all these years. While I'm skeptical about Bionicle's return, I do really hope it comes back, for the sake of BZPower. I'd love to see activity like we had before the downtime.

It's crazy to think that in less than two weeks I'll have been here for thirteen years. It's crazier to realize that I've been an Admin for a majority of that time - it felt like I was a normal staff member for forever. :P

Please, please.  He prefers to be called Tohu-kun.

 

In all seriousness, thirteen years - that's a moderately horrifyingly long time for a fansite, in a good way! Here's to many healthy more.

Even after thirteen years, Hapori Tohu doesn't show any signs of aging. He's also staring at the exact same spot.

What happens when Tohu gets old enough to drive?

 

We'll all die.

In any serious, it's been thirteen years since this place has existed, huh?

 

Man, hopefully the site'll live on for longer.

Indeed! BZPower is older than Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Tumblr. Wikipedia was started in January of 2001, only six months before us! In many ways we're a bit of a relic, but clearly that hasn't slowed us down.

In all honesty, someone make a cake, now. I'd do it if I could. It should have Tohu-kun's face with "13 years" below it. Surrounding would be the 13 most important Toa. Helryx, Lhikan, Vakama, the Toa Nuva, Takanuva, Matoro, Ignika, and one more...any ideas?
