Well I'm not really a kid anymore (14) but still not really mature, no time to look it up but I'll surely find some younger members.

According to our site statistics, our average user age has actually gone down the last several years.

Generally I don't find any particular aspect of BZP annoying, other than perhaps the lack of provision of a group instant communication function and the linking to other forums rule. Though I perfectly understand the reasoning behind these rules and I support their continuation.

That's rather low, considering the age of all of the members that I know on here are in college or high school. I'm guessing that most of them are inactive, am I wrong?

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"][color=rgb(0,128,0);]Regardless of age, such discussion does not belong on BZPower. Adult-material does not necessarily mean that adults want to view/take part in it, but that it is better suited for adults. For example, bad language is not good, but it is better suited for adults because they are more experienced and better understand it. This goes into effect for all areas of mature discussion/material. Many adults don't want to see this kind of discussion either.[/color][/font]

Yup, If I would be at work (which I'm NOT) checking BZP, My boss would merely laugh, otherwise I might get fired. Also cmon guys we're fans of Lego, a CHILDS toy (no offence :) I also like it), if we wanna be fan of it, fine but let's BE a child then and follow rules meant for a 10 year olds.

Eh, kind of? The members you see posting all the time aren't necessarily the bulk of our active members, just the ones who are more vocal. The average active member doesn't have a blog and doesn't post in so many topics all the time. 

If that makes sense.

After some quick checking. I found that over half of our members have never made a post. And less than 2,000 of our members have logged on in the last year. and of those, around 260 have actually posted In that time. Clearly something is wrong here.

Remember that post count stuff got messed up too when we switched boards. It's back to normal, but it's possible some if it got lost in translation.

I did the checking based off of a year ago. but that should only affect the total posts. Other than that it should be fairly accurate. For the amount of people actually active, that's not a terrible number. It's just the amount of people active that's bad.

I don't particularly enjoy it when people talk about bad stuff, but I don't like the fact that I am uncertain as to whether or not I'll be able to be accepted back here, since my obsessions keep on changing and there are some rather embarrassing posts that I made in my weaboo days on here.

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=#800000;]New members can be annoying, usually due to their lack of education in Grammar. But as I am one to usually point out, everyone can change for the better. I did so myself several times over the last few years. Stopped caring what people thought of me, and started living for myself being the prominent couple.[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=#800000;]Other than that I dislike the ban on talking about banned members, mostly because I am friends with some banned members and they don't even know what they did to desvere it, or what pushed them into the "Ban" area on the Staff's radar. Some of the members tried standing up for something they believed to be right and were snuffed out. That I don't think is right, but who am I to state my opinion? Either way, I disagree with it.[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=#800000;]I also disagree with the amount of time the staff to make some changes. I understand you guys have lives and all, but somethings in running a site take only a few moments to complete, and yet you take months to implement them. And if you respond to this, I'd appreciate the truth. I've run a site before and know exactly how easy some things can be.[/color][/font]

When people just make topics without looking to see if there was already one. I guess some fonts annoy me, but that's mostly because of personal distaste for some fonts (mainly Comic Sans) However, that isn't to say people can't use them, it just looks a bit off to me due to how some fonts don't have proper kerning and things like that.

 

(Also, if you use comic sans, no offense, not trying to insult anyone.)

Trust me you don't, the whole staff team is online multiple hours a day to moderate, punish, find news, improve the site,... I know the staff well enough to know they spend very much time in Bzpower. But this isn't just a site, Bzp has forums, blogs and many more, it uses the most complicated software to run the site smoothly, so it is harder to make small changes. Bzpower is massive and needs more time than a normal site to run safe, family friendly and smoothly. And by so it logic we have to wait a moment for our small issues to be solved.

The fact that you can't undo the thing when you accidentally click the forum read button(or I don't think you can). Also, the topic revival rule. I understand it, but what if you have something really good to say about a set but the last post was like in December?

THIS. I've made that mistake too many times. It doesn't help that it's in the same place as the "go to new post" buttons within individual forums; if I forget which page I'm on and click to the left of the title instinctually, I then lose the ability to know how many new posts I've missed in any topic in that forum. If there were some way to add a confirmation query for when you click that button, it would be ideal.

The biggest problems I run into are on the mobile version of the site. For instance, there's no 'Last Page' button, so I have to hit the 'Next' button over and over and over again. Nor can you scroll through the Emoticons.The only problem I've run into on the regular site is every time I try to quote it says: '<blockquote>' or whatever. I don't know why. I checked to see if I accidentally broke one of the rules or something, but there's no notifications or anything that I did. I'm stuck on this one.:(

That's why I always switch to the full site when I'm on my iPod.
