I saw my dad use the Alexa website to track his website data. I used the site for bionicle.com and found bzpower through the related links.

I really don't even remember how I stumbled across the Bionicle Zone back in the day. I remember I was running my own Bionicle community on Yahoo!, so I was probably searching around for info about upcoming sets. Almost as soon as I joined, I realized this site was going to be bigger and better than the place I was running and encouraged all the members to come here. Four days later I was running the Promotions forum.The rest, I suppose, is history...

I was looking for info on upcoming sets in early 2007, when I found one  of BZPower's toyfair articles from the time. My usage slowly grew until I decided to join in 2008.

Now I remember. (This was how I joined) I was surfing through Bionicle wikia when I found a page on Glatroian Arena 3. I saw that you guys had it, so at first I was going to get it at Media Fire, but I decided BZP was the best.

I'm pretty sure I looked at the BOGA and sure was interested in more. Then I found that-other-BIONICLE-media-site-that-now-has-forums-so-I-can't-mention-it (try to say it three times fast) and found out about this, joined after... 1 minute? 

 

I don't really know, it might have been the cool look of the site, the riddle-of-a-name (back then) or just that I was crazily joining every BIONICLE site in a "I have internet now YAAAAY" way.

 

Nope, it actually was that I wanted to see members' profiles. :P

As the majority of the people seem to have done; I found the site thanks to the LMBs; back around the summer of 2007 or so. I waited a couple months before actually joining, but, well, I think we all know my eventual decision. =PIt doesn't really seem like nearly 6 years ago, though. xD

I don't remember if I found Do NOT bypass the filter. -B6 (is that still around?) or if I found BZP first. I checked the site to see if my account was still active and, yep, it is.  I'm posting in part to see what my spinning mask is. Man, my account is 12 years old in September. (EDIT: I have no idea what that mask is.) I used to be Toa Pohatu. Is there a way to check user lists by number and join dates? I remember that used to be possible way back. (EDIT: Cool, found it. I'm on page 10.) I remember when the first Mata Nui Online Game came out. I was stuck in Ga-Koro for the longest time because I didn't know how to find that gear. Good times.
