BIONICLE Facebook Page

Page will be created.

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.

Someone wanna get cracking on a sandbox for this? --Angel Bob (talk) 19:47, 31 October 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)
  4. It would be good enough to just replace the links on the G2 pages to the respective subheading on the G2 Elements page. Master Inika (Talk) 04:39, 5 October 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 information. -- 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)
I think surel has the right idea here. even though the elements are different from their g1 counterparts, (i'll agree with that argument) we don't have enough information on them individually to separate them out in their own pages. that's just unnecessary formatting work, and unnecessary dispersal of information.

Tuma's Sword

So does anyone think Tuma's Sword could use its own article?--Wiriamu (talk) 06:23, 4 November 2016 (CET)

Yes

  1. Personally don't see why not, although we don't have too much info on it. --777stairs (talk) 05:58, 12 November 2016 (CET)

I think Tuma's sword is just the leader class variation of the Skrall Tribal Design Blade, and the Star Skrall's sword is also a variant of the Skrall Tribal Design Blades. So why don't we reformat the Skrall Tribal Design Blades page because all the Swords/Blades of the Skrall are their Skrall Tribal Design tools. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 11:33, 4 November 2016 (CET)
I think STDBs refer to that weird alien pattern on the standard Skrall blades. Tuma's is something different.
Don't really think it merits a page, though. -- Dorek Talk External Image 19:11, 5 November 2016 (CET)

The Rising/The Truth

Remember back in 2008 when the big reveal happened and Bionicle.com updated with all the shenanigans going on? Remember that there were two podcasts released narrated by Tony Wedgewood with two images which I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND that told the story of Mata Nui's rising and eventual fall?

How come we don't have any pages about them? --- Creep 00:47, 13 November 2016 (CET)

Maybe they don't have pages because no one can find them... I remember what you're talking about, but we'd need the pictures or videos to make pages about them, just because, even though I know they exist, we wouldn't be able to justify having the pages without them. Master Inika (Talk) 06:33, 13 November 2016 (CET)

They were archived by the BioMedia Project - in the music section. --maxim21 16:05, 13 November 2016 (CET)

And I think, on the webarchive versions of the BIONICLE.com they're also available. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 19:04, 13 November 2016 (CET)
Do we know what images went with them? Intelligence4 (talk)

Yes, we have the images. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 11:27, 14 November 2016 (CET)
Heck yeah. Going to download them just in case. You're a champion buddy --- Creep 14:02, 14 November 2016 (CET)
Thanks. But still, I cannot find the poster or wallpaper or screensaver image for Radiak... -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 18:08, 14 November 2016 (CET)

But, if you don't want to waste your time with the pdfs, there's the link for the png versions: http://biomediaproject.com/bmp/voiceovers/ -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 21:22, 15 November 2016 (CET)

I'm a little rusty, how can I make a sandbox again? So I can fiddle around with the page a bit. --- Creep 13:18, 16 November 2016 (CET)
I usually use the BIONICLEsector01:Sandbox. For these I'd use the {{Template:Media}} the same way as we're using it for the Music page. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 17:01, 16 November 2016 (CET)

Generation 2 Characters List

So given our lists of various Gen1 and Gen2 elements, anyone think we should make one for the Gen2 characters?--Wiriamu (talk) 05:58, 14 November 2016 (CET)

Yes

  1. You mean like a G2 version of the Characters page? I'm down. --Angel Bob (talk) 17:41, 15 November 2016 (CET)
  2. In this case, why not? But it means that we have to rename the Characters page into "Character (Generation 1)"--Surel-Nuva (Talk) 18:03, 15 November 2016 (CET)

Addition of Fansite

Given that we have BZPower on here, I feel it only right to put Mask of Destiny on as well, and perhaps even The Toa's Hideout. However, Mask of Destiny actually has a good reason, as it is actually the longest running BIONICLE fansite with a forum on the web.
