Some may call thirteen an unlucky number, but here BZPower is thirteen years later and we're still going strong! I can't think of many other websites that I've been visiting for thirteen years, and so I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the thousands upon thousands of visitors and members BZPower has had over the years - especially those of you who think we're still worth visiting over a decade later. But you don't really care about all that, the anniversary is about fun and cool stuff! We'll be using this news story to keep track of everything, so read on to see what we're up to this year!

At the end of the month, I'll get my nine-year spinny. That's close to half of my life. Yet I have no intention of leaving, now even less with a possible return of BIONICLE imminent. Keep going strong, BZPower! :)

I feels like BZP has been around a lot longer than thirteen years to me, even though I've only been hanging around here for eight years and have been a member for only half that time. Here's to another great you on BZP! And hopefully it doesn't become too rebellious. :P

BZPower:  You have for years been a place of entertainment and fun, a place for debate and laughter on my favorite "theme" from Lego.  Thank you for being available to everyone and helping make the Bionicle community stronger and closer knit!  Keep chugging along!

I can't think of many sites that last 13 years, period. Add to that, I think most of them are probably product driven, rather than fan based. Although, with the advent of social media, that's changed the possibilities of site life spans.

I think the most impressive thing is that it has actually managed (thanks to the BZPteam) to remain quite active even after the end of BIONICLE.

Happy Birthday!
