The following is...well...a comedy. It's also a how to guide, but it's a comedy at heart. Or at least it thinks it is. Regardless of what it's defined as, read it to get to know the new BZP by the person who's been beta testing it. And by that I mean I've been on here ever since it came back. And by that I mean I've been here once or twice. So I don't know that much. Sorry. ====== Pridak: Hello today, everyone, and welcome back to the....new...sorta...BZP. Tahu: 'Tis wonderful to be back. Even with this new layout that was designed by someone who is very bad at it. Pridak: Hey now. I like it. Tahu: Oh yeah, there you go. When Pridak likes it, you know it's gotta be bad. Pridak: What's that supposed to mean? Tahu: Nothing. It means nothing. At all. Literally. Pridak: ... Tahu: AT ALL. Pridak: Anyways, we're here today to help get you up to date on some of BZP's new features, at least comedy wise. Tahu: First off is the archive. Not really new, since, y'know, it's old, but still noteworthy news. News about old stuff. Pridak: Shouldn't it be olds then? Instead of news? Tahu: ....no. Pridak: Why no- Tahu: This archive contains everything posted since BZP began, minus that which was destroyed in the dataclysm. It is obviously unpostable in, so for those of you that had, hmm, I don't know, a 1800 post 300 chapter + comedy going....well...sucks to be you. Pridak: He's rather bitter. Tahu: I am not. Pridak: The only big thing to point out here is that if you visit the archives, you will automatically be logged out when you return to the new BZP forums. Kinda annoying, but oh well. Tahu: Especially when you made your password 27 characters long. And you're only about 7 inches tall, so it takes you 12 minutes to type your password in the first place. Pridak: One of the next things we noticed is the new "following" button. It is in the top right corner of every topic, and people can "follow" topics. My guess this will become a new standard for judging comedy's popularity. Tahu: For those of you that want to give it a test run, head over to Aftermath 2, our comedy, and try it out. Actually, everyone do it, just to make sure you've got it down. Pridak: Brilliant way to make sure it works. Not that it wouldn't, but, you know, you want to anyway... Tahu: The individual forums themselves also have these sorts of "following" thingies. So enjoy BZP while it's still BZP, before it gets turned into...*shudder*...a social networking site. Pridak: We sit and eagerly await the "like" button. Tahu: Another cool feature we noticed was the new "reply notification." This will let you know when someone replies to a topic you've followed, or replies to a post you made. So for those of you who loved the RPG forum, but hated sitting there and reloading the page every 10 seconds to see if someone else responded...well...you have an early Christmas. Pridak: Back to new features you can find on most social networking sites, the personal messenger can also have multiple-people conversations. A cool idea for people who want to, say, plan a mass takeover of BZP. Tahu: Or just for people who don't like typing in other people's names and then pasting a PM that they want to send out to a group of people. Pridak: That's what I said. Tahu: I broadened it. Pridak: Whatever. Tahu: The last big thing to note is that, when posting topics, the "description" bar has been replaced with a "tag" bar. In essence, this allows you to "tag" topics into certain groups, similar to Wikipedia. Pridak: The idea is that you can search for all topics "tagged" with a certain word, and all the topics with that tag will show up, making finding what you want a bit easier. Although I will miss those description bars... Tahu: Miss them? How in the world will you miss them? All they ever were was some quote from the person's comedy. "Bob and Fred's Adventure! Description: "Look, Bob, a sandwich!" Pridak: ... Tahu: ...what? Pridak: And I thought I was in a bad mood. Ah well. That concludes our study of new items for today, people. If we find anything else interesting we'll post it here. -MT

Agreed about the sign out. I was JUST on the RPG forum, and making posts and moving around tabs and... well, it was pretty annyoing having six tabss, three on New BZP and three on Archive BZP, and having to sign back in before every freakin post. The description part is sadly adequate... -Toa Levacius Zehvor :flagusa:

Nice job. Another good one shot. @Levacius: Yeah, I was copy and pasting from old MH topic trying to start new one and it kept logging me out. I got pretty ticked off before Zero explained about that whole log in log out thing.

That was actually pretty funny for a how-to guide. I especially loved the discussion about the PM system. Nice job there! Also, Pridak's line about the "like" button was absolutely hilarious. :lol: :mirunu: Lewa0111 Nuva :mirunu:

Is it just me, or is reality beginning to collapse? I suggest we stay as far away from talking with the author as possible.

Nice comedy here, Toa Zehvor. The humor is funny and isn't random - that's a rarity in this forum. -TN05

92% of the humor in comedies is random. If your comedy is part of the 8% that isn't, copy and paste this into your comedy. -MT
