Removing the Bionicle focus of the site, removing the Comics and RPG forums (Though why would anyone do THAT?), and possibly another Great Cataclysm Downtime. (Wait, is there a difference?) I mean, I love the new skin and features, but it was not worth a downtime that removed most of the content and made half the population leave (Dark709's third movie was something I REALLY looked forward to completion, and he left).

Removing the BIONICLE focus, obviously. Removing such forums as Artwork III would just make me want to stay more. :P Nothing would really make me leave unless they removed the Library, though, or any of the BIONICLE significance. Either of those reasons, or if some of my best friends left the site and I had no way to contact them, because that's one of the only three or four reasons I stay on here.

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...

Hmm... Lifting the cool dude word filter, allowing inappropriate content (PG-13 is a nice limit in my opinion), if the staff turned into heartless robots (seriously, I may not know all of them, but the ones I've seen around are pretty nice. Not to mention their sense of humor. XP), if they took the skin suggestion and omitted a green format (the horror) and if I were banned due to the color green being banned from the site for... reasons (they're there and they totally exist in logical form which would make the event plausible! I swear! D= )So, if all of that went down, I'd probably leave the site. Doubt that's going to happen anytime soon, though. XP

It was more or less a joke, but I can't take that forum. It just seems like an enormous chatroom, and the comics don't appear all that funny to me, with the exception of Taka Nuvia's. I tried to like the comics there, and I read about nine of Dark709's comics, and some of the newer ones, and I didn't laugh once. Sorry if I'm being honest, but I just don't like those forums because they attract spam. I'm not trying to pick a fight, but simply stating my opinion - if my opinion is offending you, you can either laugh it off or continue to argue, but I've been honest about my opinion and I'm not going to argue further. Your choice.

If the staff started to massively abuse their powers and began banning random people and deleting stuff. Either that, or if the Bionicle focus was lost.If they deleted my favourite forum(s), I would just be less active and/or migrate to somewhere else.

Removing the blogs and/or COT would be the main deal-breaker for me. Whether we kept a "BIONICLE focus" (which doesn't really mean that much to me even as a pair of words) couldn't really interest me at all for the most part--most of the time. As long as this board has BIONICLE discussion, I'm good. (In fact, shifting more focus to the non-BIONICLE or even non-LEGO side of things would just interest me more!)

Sorry if I'm being honest

I swear, this board attracts the nicest people. So, put down awesome and nice people (especially those I actually know--as opposed to those who just say something perfectly appropriate in some thread) leaving as the number one reason I'd leave.~ BioGio

If the rules got too strict. Not that they are at the moment. They just could be. There's a lot of potential for things to get bad.Also, if the few friends I have on here left. That'd be pretty depressing, so I'd probably grab my bags and take off.

If the moderation were relaxed to the point that the majority of comments began to resemble the worst of the LEGO Message Boards or Unmentionable Video Site. Or if non-BIONICLE discussion was banned outright, since the shift to broader LEGO discussion was what brought me back after the downtime.But yeah. None of those things are going to happen, so realistically there's no change that could automatically drive me away.

PonyPower can never ever happen why? Black Six is not a Brony (he even said he's tired of the "fad") even if everyone switched to pony avatars and sigs it would still BZPower. For me I think it would be if everyone became vocally intolerant of certain members' likes or dislikes. In other words if everyone started hating a group of members because they liked something. That or if BZP removed the blogs, COT, Library, and BS01 forums.

Not too sure really, I'd probably end up being one of those people who just slowly fade out over time than to leave due to some change or other. I do suppose, though, that if staff became all Sidious-like that it'd probably get me to leave (not that that'll happen, of course~)That and possibly if religion/politics became allowed. I say possibly because I'd leave based on how much of a mess it would become. (ie: how much flaming/insulting is going on).

Any changes would have to be ridiculous to get me to leave. Getting rid of S&T would probably reduce my activity, but as long as there are still MOCs, art and library forums, I'd still maintain some presence, and I can't see any possibility of them going.

Now that I think on it, if BZP became like a bunch of other forums on the Internet, full of adolesant savagery and lacking in inteligent debate...like that place that starts with an F, then I would split. Sadly, I'm starting to see that influence slowly seep in...:( :( Do you guys know what I'm talking about?

I'd say if the site restructured to be less inclusive of non-BIONICLE or even just non-constraction themes, that would probably be a serious incentive for me to leave. I might not leave immediately, but if it turned out that I wasn't getting the same level of LEGO discussion here then I'd certainly become less interested and active.I tend to put up with a lot of changes so I can't say any abrupt change I can envision would really make me leave immediately. Gradual changes in the community, such as people becoming less accepting of other LEGO themes, conversations becoming less mature and constructive, etc. might make me lose interest, though.
