I see scantily clad girls, so I figured why not this?"Entry 6: "I've heard rumors that Hapori Tohu's head grants wishes if you spin the gears counter-clockwise, so I was just wondering if members could get proto points by bribing him with cake?"Entry 7: "Given that Bfahome's pet ferret is out of town this week, will the General Discussion forum be filled with boring topics that do not spur discussion?"Category 2: "There is a precedent, but we don’t talk about that - so, yes, as long as it’s not too large."Entry 1: "I'm currently working on a brand new comedy, but I'd like to obtain clarification on the rules before I post it. I wish to include the text "Do NOT bypass the word filter. -B6" in one of my chapters, to make it appear as though Black Six has edited it, for added humour. Would this be allowed?"Entry 2: "I made an image of Lewa dressed as a ballerina.

Why is that? And may I host the contest and announce it with a banner in my signature?"Entry 6: "Is there a limit to the size of an ego on BZP?"Entry 7: "There's this member who keeps calling me "an cool dude" and it's really been doing wonders for my self-esteem! I wanted to give him a proto boost, but I was just wondering if that was allowed?"Entry 8: "Hi, I was recently contacted by a member with a higher proto and post count than me, stating that my overuse of the word "post" in one of my posts had caused his own post to go unnoticed, despite the fact that my post was significantly less intelligent and much less of a post. he then proceeded to tell me not to use the word post in my posts, because posts should be insightful, not posts about posts being post-ful. However, i also heard that there was a quote about making your posts count and I feel this directly contradicts him, as talking about posts in a post can lead to interesting discussion. I just wanted to know if there is a specific limit on how many times a word can go into a single sentance, and more specifically, if we can post an entire post with simply the word post, as I did."Entry 9: "It has come to my attention that there is a McSmeag fanclub. Now to me this unprecedented in BZP's history and should be a joyous celebration. Unfortunately these fans want me to make a picture of what BZP would be like if McSmeag was in charge. I don't know if we can make pictures of what BZP would be like with someone other than Black Six. Am I allowed to make a picture of what BZP would be like with McSmeag in charge?"Category 3: "He was joking. The rules clearly state that it is allowed in most cases; this one is uncertain."Entry 1: "Help! I want to make a comedy that has "LOL!" and "cool,bro",but is this allowed?"Entry 2: "Am I allowed to post in this topic?"Entry 3: "I was told I was not allowed to enter this question into the contest.

I mean, can't I write 'LOL YOUR SO AWESOME'?"Entry 9: "Can I start running around the site posting everywhere someone says "Bionicle is DEAD!" with, "OMG, the zombies killed Bionicle!"?"Entry 10: "Yeah, so there's this member running around the site who yells "BURN STUFF!" in every post in every topic in every forum and he/she follows it up with an 1801x4532 pixel image of Kopaka with a lighter. I heard from a reliable source that this behavior is not acceptable, however I have yet to see any of the staff members take action. Is this allowed?"
