Well April Fools Day is tomorrow. What do you predict the staff will do this year.I'd guess with all the MLP going around Bzpower will change to My Little Power.

Even when things look there worst. And the shadow of evil is upon us. Remember that as long as we hope for the best. Light will appear and overcome the darkness.

Please check out my projects on Lego Ideas.9.gif

I'm looking for an Inkay or Malamar with its event move Happy Hour. Pm if you have one I can borrow to breed and pass the move down so I can have an Inkay with the move for myself.

 

I'm looking to finish my berries collection. If you have any spares of either Starf Berrry or Lansat Berry. Pm me. I can offer a Shiny Spinda for one or both.

Doubt it will be anything MLP related (that may drive people away). Judging from the fear stuff I'm going to say BZP will become Fear Zone Power where you will meet your worst nightmares. Maybe not exactly like that but probably something along those lines, or they might just switch everyone's username colors. We'll just wait and see.

Rule of thirds. Something is always funny the first three times. They could potentially do this twice more and still consider it a joke. :music:

No clue. Today's the 1st, and I don't see anything so far. My guess is, they'll delay it until a day or two after to initiate the prank so we don't expect it coming.

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...

Doubt it will be anything MLP related (that may drive people away).

In 2005, BZP had KimPower, where they claimed they were selling the site to a Kim Possible fan. Boy was there outrage and we got fooled. Great times. My Little Power would actually work really well for a turnaround in lack of member pranking. But BZP has become so ungullible after those pranks so many years ago.

True. It's like every single prank has been done already and those that haven't been, people would guess. For example, MLP is so hot right now on the rest of the internet that to do it here would seem almost expected. Everyone(everypony?) would give a collective "meh, saw that coming" and go on with their normal posting. To do nothing would be slightly unexpected since they've done it before. But, whatever you want to do is fine. Like I said, I'm down with a good prank.
