Bionicle.com used to have a section called "The Buzz" which had a Ling to BzP and another fan site. I first found BZP through that page.

I found out about it thanks to my brother who is eight years older than me. He joined a loooong time ago. He told me about it one day. I lurked around the site for about seven years, before finally becoming a member.

really long time ago I saw it a few times, but didn't become a member.

Then I was looking for a Bionicle-related podcast, found the BZPowercast, and the rest is history.

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]How did I hear of this place? I wish I could remember. [/font]

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]It was probably from randomly getting linked here, or a google search. Like many people, I lurked for ages before becoming a member. I've been very on-and-off though, and after lots of forgetting passwords I'd say I'm here to stay. Well, I haven't been here since last year, but that's neither here nor there.[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"][color=#ff0000;]Hm...I am pretty sure that I first heard of BZPower in 2004, which I believe was back when Bionicle.com actually had a link to this place on the main website. [/color][/font]

 

So that wasn't just my imagination! Thanks a lot for confirming that, because I was sure that was how I found BZP, too; though I couldn't find any other evidence that the link had ever existed, so I thought maybe I'd just been confused at the time XD;;;

 

But yeah, I found BZP in early '04, too, via that link on bionicle.com. I didn't really understand what I was getting myself into at the time - I was a complete newbie to forums, only being twelve at the time - but it only took me a couple of days of browsing to decide that I wanted in. And, in hindsight, I'm glad that I did; it gave me a lot of useful internet experience I wouldn't have got otherwise - even if I did spend my first few years here just saying dumb things that I regretted later XD

I chanced upon BZP on one of my searches for Bionicle-related stuff 6 years ago. Then I joined after a couple of months. Back then, I have never heard of such a thing as a "forum" (being only 10 at the time) and members quickly noticed my naïveté.But after some time, I've learned how to express my opinion eloquently, and generally just find new friends who shared my interests. One could say BZPower had a great influence on how I interact socially, and served as a gateway for me to eventually use social networking (in a mature manner).I used to be active then, but after the discontinuation of Bionicle, I've rarely participated in the forums (this is my first post in 7 months), but I try my best to find time and reply to topics, or share one of my MOCs. I may have a lot going on in my personal life to be able to participate here often, but the BZP community will always be near and dear to my heart.

[color=#ff0000;]Well,........[/color]

 

[color=#a9a9a9;]A long time ago I was in the Lego message boards in a very popular topic-Secret Way To Game when I heard some members talking about how if you google searched "Mata Nui Online Game" the first result (BMP) would let you play the game....getting even more interested that such games would still exist on the web I quickly did a few google searches and found that some guy had a whole bunch of Bionicle game.  I stayed there for awhile then quickly found something even better-BOGA (Bionicle Online Game Archive), I then just went back to going to the Lego Message Boards and from time-to-time viewing BOGA updates.  One day I decided to check out their partners and came upon BMP.  I was quickly amazed by the large amount of Lego Games for download they had and stuck around there for awhile.  A few months later I started giving them a whole bunch of LDD versions and they invited me to the staff the first day I joined.  I heard quite a bit about BZP there and decided to check it out.  I created acount but, I didn't go on it for a month.  I then came back and started posting here and stuff like that.[/color]

 

[color=#ff0000;]Basically what you heard was one of the most major turns I've ever had in my internet history.  From 2010-2011.[/color]
