The topic title here feels like a challenge. Climb the cliff, slay the Kardas Dragon, and...Introduce Yourself. Okay.
Hi everyone, I'm fishers64 and my pronouns are she/her. You may call me fishers if you prefer. I've been a Bionicle fan since 2005 and a member of the Bionicle community since 2010, when I joined BZPower. I remember back when TTV was a topic on the BZPower forums, and now it is its own thing, with its own board.
On BZP, I managed to rescue the 3 Greg Quote topics from the hacker apocalypse that took out the old BZP forum archive. I did this by using a Java program to read thousands of forum pages and lace them back together into an enormous text file. These text files were later developed by another member of the community to become the http://greg.greatarchives.com site. It warms my heart to see Greg quotes being referenced on BS01 in the citations section.
Originally, I had intended in making those large TXTs to organize the posts into categories - the infamous Categorical GregF Reference that never got finished. It's interesting to see that the community has executed about 60%- 80% of my original vision, with the archive site. Which is a very long way of saying that I am a reference/story nerd, and thus interested in the Ask Greg section of the site.
With that being said, I joined here because I have a MoC/craft project to post in the creative section that I'm working on. It also kind of goes without saying that I've known about the podcast and the YouTube channel and the board for a very long time, but I wasn't really the best lover of the podcast format back in the day. Also back in the day, BZPower had its own podcast, and also the BS01 guys had a podcast (I think they still do) so they were fighting for my attention. These days, the news reporting aspect is convenient - it was easier to watch TTV's video on the Quest for Mata Nui than to try to sort through the Discord, and easier to watch TTV's video on Faber than to sit through Faber's rambling stream.
And yeah, that's pretty much it for here.
