What annoys you on BZPower? For me, it's referring to the AA Toa Nuva as "Mistika" and "Phantoka", when technically, only Krika, Bitil, and Gorast are Mistika and only Antroz, Chirox, and Vamprah are Phantoka. Those terms apply to the Makuta, not the sets.

The fact that flame wars seem to erupt every now and then from things that shouldn't be argued over in the first place irritates me - though it really wouldn't be BZPower without the occasional bit of internet drama.The word filter, though solid, really should be updated in some form or another, so as far as something that could easily be changed goes, that'll probably be it.

The meme has been fuelled by the dark flames of the self-proclaimed boss of the Internet that is too evil to even mention. That is why it cannot die.Not that I have any problem with it.Anyway, my pet peeve would be bad grammar. I don't really care about people starting sentences with 'And', but it's rather annoying to see some people forget capitalisation and full stops.

Why are orange and black such a good color Combination ? Purple is pretty, and so is blue. Pink hurts your eyes, green is quite mellowing, black is very threatning, red is cool, orange is SO awesome, yellow's hard to read... But you can't see white at all! Oh, wait. I forgot brown.

Here's my thoughts: If a person tells the truth and says, " I always lie," Is he lying? Or is he telling the truth? And what has a mouth, but no head, and a body, but no torso? Do caterpillars like to tend to supporting colum of stone's every need? Or is that name misleading by nature? Speaking of nature, why are the children of animals called offspring? don't many young beasts come alive in spring, and thus, should be called onspring? Heeeeeeyy..... I got the first post on a page for the first time. Who knows; it may happen again. What the... It did happen again... and again...

Not being able to mention a popular video website. And, on that note, not being able to link to sites with forums.

The video site can't be mentioned because the comments usually have a lot of profanity in them, which is actually a similar case with Twitter, yet that's allowed somehow. =/Big signature images are exasperating most of the time, sometimes it takes awhile for the page to load if the images are too big. Also, I have no absolutely no problem with the MLP fad, it's much better than the fad that was going on right before the forums went down.

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

Actually, that may be reasonable. Would you like your MOCing skill now to be judged based on your first MOC, which was made before you became good at it?

...You are aware that those can be posted in COT, right?
Anyway, I'd have to say the rule about a certain video site. I understand the intention behind it, but it still doesn't really make sense. I mean, MSPA has forums and no one seems to have a problem with talking about it, yet we aren't even allowed to mention a video site that pretty much everyone has heard of just because it has comments.Also, the general attitude toward ArtIII. Sure, there are plenty of bad comics, but it really doesn't deserve the hate it gets and I wish more people would actually give it a chance. =/

Let me correct you on that. The staff are bound to the rules just as much as the members are. I suppose you are referring to the occasions when a video site that is forbidden on the forums is linked to on the front page. That exception is made when a video and its comments and links to other videos are appropiate. In the forums, it´s impossible to control all posted videos, so better not to allow them at all. On the front page it´s another matter because the staff controls what is posted there and knows it´s appropiate. In the forums, not even the Reporters who would post a link on the front page are allowed to link to any site you must not link to either. ;)My pet peeves are slow loading times when sending PMs, silly disputes and when people can´t simply respect the beliefs and hobbies of another.~Gata. ;)

You people can't seem to grasp the fact that Friendship is Magic is not a meme. Just like you are interested in Bionicle or Pokemon- You use banners of it or talk about it, people like FiM and use banners of it and talk about it. Most bronies I know of don't do it because it's a meme, they do it because they like it.

Props to Bambi for summing up MLP:FiM very well.As for me it's mostly the people who hate Hero Factory/FiM/really anything and only use the exact same argument. Such as "HERO FACTORY SUCKS CAUSE IT REPLACED BIONICLE AND IT'S SETS ARE BABYISH RIPOFFS" and "MLP IS A LITTLE GIRLS SHOW SO ONLY LITTLE GIRLS SHOULD LIKE IT AND ANY GUY WHO LIKES IT IS NOT RIGHT IN THE HEAD" etc, etc. Really, arguments are fine and I believe they are healthy from time to time, but when you only bring up the same arguments that weren't extremely valid to begin with.oh and some other stuff but mostly that one

Mostly that a lot of the rules are very archaic and outdated, and that there doesn't seem to be much effort in the way of changing that. The word filter, social media, various other sites that aren't allowed to even be mentioned, let alone linked to, etc. Some of the reasons given, to me, don't really satisfy the times.I also feel like there's an overall attitude that wouldn't allow this topic to actually be posted, but surprise surprise =P. There's definitely an air of "criticize me and you die", both from staff and members alike, that make it really hard to have open communication and dialogue; I'm hoping that this topic is indicative of a change in that feeling, and that people can learn to recognize constructive criticism, as opposed to taking everything as an insult.

He probably has rich-text enabled (because it was apparently made the default for some unfathomable reason?), which makes it practically impossible to do all but the most basic of code, and linking even falls outside that.

It's stayed off for me. =/I think it's been going back for some other people, though-not sure what's up there.Anyway, on the original topic, my biggest pet peeve would be the drama that comes up over nothing (or next to nothing). The word filter isn't my favorite thing either, but I get that there's a boatload of stuff that needs to be done faster.And finally, I wish the buttons could be used in the post editor when you're in BBCode mode.

grammar; is for' scrubs. e.e. cummings for the win.But I would say posting short stories. Unless you're already popular on BZPower, it's unlikely that you'll get more than a few posts on something that you've spent hours working on.

The code is pretty simple.[url=Insert URL]Text[/url]I don't know why typing that is so time-consuming or difficult.But anyway, a minor thing that annoys me is how a few things on BZP end up looking horribly mangled on my desktop, such as blogs and the replying window, while they work perfectly fine on my laptop. It's lame.~B~

He probably has rich-text enabled (because it was apparently made the default for some unfathomable reason?), which makes it practically impossible to do all but the most basic of code, and linking even falls outside that. I've been having the same problem; I think it can be disabled in your options somewhere, but I haven't quite figured out how to do it XP

Although I understand and approve of the reasoning behind it, I would really like to link to another forum site I'm on in my sig.

There's a little lightswitch looking button in the upper left hand side of the rich text editor. Click it, it will switch it back to the basic text editor where all the code work.

Yeah, but you have to manually click it every time you want to make a post, unless I've been doing it wrong =P

Funny thing about my post, I actually figured out how to link after I made the post. But thanks anyway guys.So my other pet peeve is the fact that there's hardly anyone in the library. I haven't posted a story but the lack of attention to new authors is stunning.
