A bit of honesty



 I'm rarely on this site and have rarely posted about anything in any format because the honest truth is I've been on this site before under a different username, a different account.

 That account was bullied off the site.

 I was much younger then. I was ignorant of things and was just looking to have a good time with friends I made. Older members, adults, on this site came after me when I was 14 years old and bullied me off the site.

 That's the BZPower I remember and know. I made a new account later in life, this one, and hoped I could talk about my passion of Bionicle again without carrying the social stigma that was made against me.

 It, frankly, hasn't worked well. I see many of the same folks that hurt me dearly still posting and being active.

 BZPower, to be honest, lost its way. It stopped being about Bionicle a long time ago and became a clique. The forum was ran(both on staff and off staff) by a group of people that used the forum to flex their internet power points on others. Many things I posted, shared, wrote, whatever...were criticized and ignored for not being one of them. And that's a hard thing to take when all you want is to have fun on a website dedicated to a toy.

 There is not a single friend I made on BZPower that I still know today because of the environment created here. My friend, S, has become consumed by this site and I can't bear to talk to her ever again because of the venom built up in her over all this. It's too much.

 It's all too much for a toy.

 It was just supposed to be a toy fan site.

 That's all I wanted. I got a lot of other things instead.

 I'll probably still be around, here and there. I've said my piece.

 I'm done holding the sky up.

The toxicity and limitations of discussion is why I also departed this website. What you see now is a rare check up after Lord knows how long. Rest now in your Mauritanian bed Atlas, you deserve it.

Absolutely. The only reason I never left completely was because of the RPGs, but even that has become a cliquey mess of a microcommunity that I don't always feel I belong to, either. Some people never grew out of their power play phases and took this place far too seriously. And I'll admit, there were times I was among them—I'm no saint. 

Now the toys we gathered here for are extinct, but the egos never died.
