MotR is so old his knife is nothing but a past memory. Still hurts though.
Also you need to be on Gmail. We have unimportant things to discuss.--dark lite 17:28, 8 December 2011 (PST)
Had to go to bed right then. So, are you on now? --Vartemp 11:42, 9 December 2011 (PST)
Well, I don't think so. xP

Juuuust since you're Tomana, I'll let you keep your welcome there. (And also the fact that I need a laugh once in a while) --Vartemp 06:59, 10 December 2011 (PST)

Retirement

Now you can get online more often. I'll introduce you to the wonderful world of the old, weird, retired editors. ~Dark Light

Sad to see you retire (even though I've pretty much done the same thing)... Are you still on BZP or anything? -Toa Nidhiki05 18:52, 10 March 2012 (PST)
I'm still on BZP every now and then, but not much since no one can ask GregF anything now. --Vartemp 11:40, 11 March 2012 (PDT)
Don't be introduced to the old, weird, retired editors Var. They are old, weird and retired. Also, we'll miss ya bro. Grant-Sud 10:39, 12 March 2012 (PDT)
I enjoyed out times together too, Grant. --Vartemp 11:59, 13 March 2012 (PDT)

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. ;_; Obitor

This. You've become one of the most skilled and dedicated editors I've seen in four years, and whatever anyone thinks of you, ignore it. You've made this Wiki a better place, and if you take away nothing else from your time here, then just remember the fact that you're an extremely talented individual who can use that talent in any way he sees fit. Much love, mate.--'Tyler Durden 17:21, 15 March 2012 (PDT)

Templates

Speaking of Templates, do you remember how the EL Template was set up? It needs restoring and I can't find it. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

I recall it being called "Template:EL Tablet". I don't seem to be having much luck either. I remember it had two shades of blue; one for the background and one for the outline of it. The background shade was lighter. It also required <li> tags to be around every event. I don't recall editing it, or looking at the coding, so that's all I remember of it. --Vartemp 18:53, 26 July 2012 (PDT)

Mmmm, I didn't remember the list tags... This is something I should have had on my history page >_< They have entries about KS01 after all... ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Archive?

Do you still Archive talk pages?--FROGGER0 Ribbit?! Sig Services 14:16, 23 August 2012 (PDT)

Yeah, I still do, even though I am technically 'retired'. Do you want yours archived? --Vartemp 18:16, 23 August 2012 (PDT)

Yes please.--FROGGER0 Ribbit?! Sig Services 22:03, 23 August 2012 (PDT)

Welcome Back

Good to see you around Vartemp. Thought I'd log in for once to say hello. It's coming on three years since the end of Bionicle. Good times were had. Man I haven't edited a wiki in forever. HAVE YOU SEEN THIS MAN?

The n0rb I helped out at random returns. Yes, I have seen your new signature, and that's good. I'm not nearly as good as coding as I was then. :b --Vartemp 17:52, 26 September 2012 (PDT)

lol --DL 10:34, 26 November 2012 (PST)

Haha just saying hi. Also, dude the "new messages" box... Oh myyyy it's like the old times all over again.
Oh my, it's like... Wow, dude. Sup. --DL 14:39, 28 November 2012 (PST)

Story

I wrote a story for the new S&T Contest, and I was wondering if you could read it and give me some feedback. It's here if you have time to read it. Toa Duran 17:02, 27 November 2012 (PST)

I would love to read the story, but at the moment, I am a bit busy. I might have time to do it on Wednesday though. --Vartemp 16:03, 2 December 2012 (PST)

Can you code this to make this work? http://web.archive.org/web/20110704010313/http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/BIONICLEsector01:Template_Messages. I'd restore the page, but I can't code.

I'd code the first one, but the second one is way too outdated. That color system was used four years ago. --Vartemp 08:22, 22 December 2012 (PST)
Okay. We need to work on something then. Thanks man. Lord Nektann

Hey

You're welcome =P ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Aha. I saw you mentioned my page on you file, and it's awfully empty, so I thought, "Might as well." I've just been lazy and stuff. :b --Vartemp

Same here. It took me waaay to long to get the new April event written up XD ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Prefix Categories

Hey, thanks for clarifying that for me and for alerting the Staff. I was on hiatus during the transition, so I didn't know that. Also, thanks for fixing the Ussal Race and Kewa Flying pages.

Come to think of it, it's been a long time since we talked. How've you been, man? SANTA JALA Happy Hahli-days 07:37, 16 December 2013 (PST)

Very busy in rl. I have more or less lost interest in BIONICLE. I'll occasionally come back to check on what's going on though. What have you been up to? --Vartemp 03:38, 18 December 2013 (PST)

Pretty much the same. My interest in BIONICLE keeps wavering. I'm mostly just doing self-assigned maintenance work now. Trying to keep things alive, as it were. But I've been well, thank you. :) SANTA JALA Happy Hahli-days 22:25, 18 December 2013 (PST)

Sorry about messing your header up; the header CSS was changed when MediaWiki was updated and I tried to recreate it again, but clearly I didn't get it right :P I think this should work: <span style="font-size:2em;position:absolute;top:.25em;line-height:1.2em;left:.5em;color:STEELBLUE;">User:Vartemp</span> -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 03:05, 2 April 2014 (CEST)

Set Names

They help organize the page so you don't have to read the whole thing to jump ahead to the part you want to read about, but without going through the hassle of deviding it into subsections. We could put it up for discussion if you disagree, but I think it would be really helpful. TakhamavahuExternal Image 01:24, 15 August 2014 (CEST) How about Italics? It would still be distinguished, but not such an eyesore on the page. TakhamavahuExternal Image 21:13, 16 August 2014 (CEST)

Stars

I understand we don't need to put minor scale notes about every set ever, but the Stars are very clearly unique case. Not a single one of them is to scale with anything else and half of them are canonically screwy with no explaination. When people read this wiki and get told that 2003 and 2010 Takanuva are the same when they clearly aren't, it's confusing. If we don't have an explaination, we at least need a note saying that there is no explaination. The same goes for Tahu and for the rest, the issue of scale is a much more drastic thing than between anyting else. The "Toa" page has a note saying that they are all roughly the same size despite the way the sets gradually grew over the years. But there is no "Stars" page. They each need a note individually.TakhamavahuExternal Image 12:15, 22 August 2014 (CEST)

I do not even remotely understand how one could find this confusing. At all.
They were smaller sets. Big deal. This isn't different from size changes in the past. If it's the same character, it's the same character. It really is not a stretch at all to believe that.
Minor set discrepancies are not considered notable. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)
@Tak: Another good example is the Makuta set from 2003 and the Ultimate Dume set from 2004. In canon, the only difference was the 2004 version had wings, but the sets looked nothing alike. --Vartemp 18:42, 22 August 2014 (CEST)

Soon

Heh heh heh hahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHA `Cykron

What's up Cykron? Where did you come from? --Vartemp 00:39, 21 September 2014 (CEST)
The depths of SPARTA. Heard Bionicle was coming back. XD I feel like an old man coming back to find a bunch of his WW2 buddies hanging out at McDonald's. `Cykron
Lol. I was gone for a time too. I started coming back here this past summer. Looks like we're both now veterans of the wiki. --Vartemp 00:50, 21 September 2014 (CEST)
Guess so. Life is cray cray lol. I feel like I have street cred heh heh. `Cykron
Sure, you have street credit. You have a line of street credit. And I'm the bank.
Your bill is overdue. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 10:28, 21 September 2014 (CEST)
Dorek s-sir! I'll pay just leave my kids outta this, please! `Cykron
I'm gonna stay outta this too. I don't want to get billed by the Dorek. --Vartemp 13:51, 21 September 2014 (CEST)
I didn't seriously think that my life would end on Var's talk, of all pages. `Cykron

Era Icons

Hey, Vartemp. I know the Era icons are broken with the new skin, but that's just because the skin itself is broken. Once it's fixed (or the whole shebang is discarded; whichever winds up happening) we're just gonna have to put them back. So, please stop removing them from pages.

Thanks. :) --Master of the Rahkshi Ask, and ye shall receive. Eventually. 00:52, 8 October 2014 (CEST)

I was removing them only from appropriate pages, because someone added them to event, object, and location pages, when Template:Era specifically says they only go on character pages. --Vartemp 01:55, 8 October 2014 (CEST)
So it does. Carry on then. XD --Master of the Rahkshi Ask, and ye shall receive. Eventually. 02:38, 8 October 2014 (CEST)

Swert found this the other day: the original, original site. Thought it might go well on your page =) ζoxHistories External Image

Wow. That's very interesting. It'll certainly be a valuable addition to my page (which I admit still lacks a lot). Also, congrats on finally becoming staff. Well deserved! =) --Vartemp Talk 15:45, 21 November 2015 (CET)

Thanks! ^_^ And I'm happy to have brought something to add to your page =) ζoxHistories External Image

I was really suprised to see that CM had two name changes. He must've not had the name, "Syphon" for very long. --Vartemp Talk 20:43, 23 November 2015 (CET)

Thanks

As the title says, thanks for helping out. Apparently I need to keep a closer check on the RC or something. ζoxHistories External Image

You're welcome. And it's all good. It's a good thing that I've been checking on BS01 more regularly lately. --Vartemp Talk 20:49, 3 February 2016 (CET)

Teridax's True Appearences

About the edit I made, I was meaning that in the movies, Makuta's Shadow Titan form looks the same as his "Ultimate Dume" form, but with no wings, though we don't know if there's a media element that said that, whereas not sure if believe if the characters look either in set form or movie form, thanks though. --BIONICLE 4EVER (talk) 02:56, 14 February 2016 (CET)

Pretty sure they are the same form in canon. Doesn't it make sense that he'd have the same form in Metru Nui as he did in Mangaia except with wings? --Vartemp Talk 14:33, 14 February 2016 (CET)
The two forms are the same, he just modified the wingless Ultimate Dume form. Surel-nuva (talk) 15:54, 14 February 2016 (CET)

Hey!

Hey, Vartemp! It's good to see you online again! It's been too long - a few years, unless I'm mistaken. How are you? -- 3.14159265359 Shall I continue? 05:35, 15 March 2016 (CET)

I've been quite busy irl. I'm still into BIONICLE though. Enough to at least follow the story. I usually check on here at least once a day, but I don't edit much. How have you been? --Vartemp Talk 12:53, 15 March 2016 (CET)
Not too bad, thanks. I hear ya. I'll have times when I check or edit every day, and then times when I won't go on for a month or so. I'm weird like that LOL. Guys like you and me - BIONICLE's not really something that leaves us. Anyhow, I've been working on a new project with another user who joined a few weeks ago. He's pretty much outdone me LOL. -- Toa Jala The AFC needs your help! 05:39, 16 March 2016 (CET)
