BIONICLE Facebook Page

This wiki should probably have some way of referencing the happenings of the Bionicle Facebook page, which often releases images and videos that are either exclusive or are not released on another source until later and hosts events such as contests. Bionicle websites have articles so it should seem logical that the facebook page should as well. Even if a page is not made, there should be some way of referencing events that unfold on the facebook page as well as images, videos, and other content. This could mean a nav template or a category of some form. Post your thoughts.

I've made pages for each of the individual contests (just been really slow fleshing them out, since nobody else seems to want to tackle it...), but a page for the Facebook page as a whole could be interesting. -- Dorek Talk External Image 08:25, 30 January 2016 (CET)

I assume this is the official BIONICLE page (i.e., it was actually run by LEGO, and not a fan page)? -- External Image Speak to Me 07:25, 18 February 2016 (CET)
^Stupid question LOL^ -- External Image Speak to Me 06:36, 21 February 2016 (CET)
Somebody will create a sandbox section or the page? -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 18:43, 28 August 2016 (CET)

Generation 2 Elements

Anyone else think we should create separate pages for the Generation 2 versions of Elements like Fire or Jungle? The fact that they're used in G2 pages and link to G1 topics seems like it would be confusing for those unfamiliar with the wiki.--Wiriamu (talk) 05:43, 15 July 2016 (CET)

  3. Since we now have a full-fledged Elements (Generation 2) page, I don't think we need separate pages for them anymore. --Angel Bob (talk) 18:16, 15 August 2016 (CET)

It'd be tricky... but I'd like to see it get done. I think from an organizational perspective it'd be pretty useful, even if the page is super bare-bones. But I'm also not scrambling to make them myself, y'know? -- Dorek Talk External Image 10:19, 15 July 2016 (CET)

Unless the Gen. 2 elements are somehow inherently different than the Gen. 1 elements, I think it'd be easier to make "Gen. 1" and "Gen. 2" sections on the existing elemental pages. -- Toa Jala Converse 17:36, 16 July 2016 (CET)
Yes, it would be simpler than creating new pages with less informations. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 11:07, 19 July 2016 (CET)
I don't think we should bother, to be honest. The elements are pretty much the same, and it's pretty well known to anyone looking at G2 pages that there was a generation of bionicle before that. at most, we could add a bit in the trivia of the element pages to note that it was also in g2. Intelligence4 (talk) 08:45, 1 August 2016 (CET)

We have redirecting pages for them, so I think we don't need that pool anymore. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 09:41, 12 August 2016 (CET)

I realize now that the Gen2 elements are, in fact, inherently different from the Gen1 elements. For example, G2 Fire also influences magma, whereas G1 Fire does not. G2 Jungle deals with air and G2 Stone deals with sand. Also, G2 Water-users can breathe underwater whereas most G1 Water users could not. -- Toa Jala Converse 07:29, 18 August 2016 (CET)
But we still don't have enough information about them. And we have much more information about the G1 elements than the G2 ones. I think the Elements (Generation 2) is the best place for them. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 15:37, 28 August 2016 (CET)

Shadow Spawn

Dorek raised the idea of making a page for these guys (Umarak's doubles). I think it could work. I nominate Dorek or someone other than me to make a sandbox. :P

Yes

  1. Why not? --Angel Bob (talk) 17:08, 14 August 2016 (CET)
  2. Haha, fine, I'll make a sandbox. -- Dorek Talk External Image 17:40, 14 August 2016 (CET)
  3. If Axato has a page, so why not? -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 17:44, 14 August 2016 (CET)

  6. Sandbox looks good to me. -- Toa Jala Converse 04:38, 26 August 2016 (CET)

On a related note, do we want to add a set/combiner page for the model itself? --Volitak Boxor (talk) 23:55, 14 August 2016 (CET)

Seems like a good idea to me! --Angel Bob (talk) 00:01, 15 August 2016 (CET)
That's actually one I'm more hesitant on. It's not really an official "combiner" in the same way others are, same as Makuta not being one. It's buildable because that was the designer's intent, and it happens to only use pieces from certain sets, but it's not quite a "combiner". -- Dorek Talk External Image 10:27, 15 August 2016 (CET)
I can understand that. I guess all the relevant information would fit on a "Set Information" section of the page - but I think the Onua and Umarak set pages should still mention that they can be used to make the Shadow Spawn. Which reminds me... --Angel Bob (talk) 16:56, 15 August 2016 (CET)
I think both of the Shadow Spawn and Makuta would be listed in the Template:CombinerNav as the Ranama and the Kirikori Nui. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 13:35, 23 August 2016 (CET)

The Shadow Spawn is plural or singular? -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 01:23, 23 August 2016 (CET)

It can be used as a singular or plural noun. English makes no goddang sense. --Angel Bob (talk) 12:38, 26 August 2016 (CET)
Okay, thanks. Just because the G1's BIONICLE names' plural and singular forms were the same, and I didn't know that the Shadow Spawn is following this rule or not, and I thought I need this information to create the sandbox's section for that. (And yes, I created the section before I got the answer, but...) -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 21:19, 26 August 2016 (CET)
