Teridax's Plan

This was a pretty important idea in the Bionicle storyline, especially in later years. It had a lot of moving parts, and different parties involved with various motivations. Most of the info is covered on the wiki, but not condensed into one main place. Thoughts? (Also, I don't know whether or not it would be better to just call the page "The Plan", which is less specific but more commonly used.)~ Volitak Boxor (talk) 18:58, 26 March 2015 (CET)

We actually had a page like this ages ago, and it was really unfocused and meandering. It was classified as an "event" page, but that was an enormous stretch, since nothing about the actual plan itself really qualified as an event. Once I saw how awful the page was, I reformatted it into Mata Nui's Reawakening, since that was the focal point of the entire plan and allowed for a more objective perspective anyway. I'm open to a redirect there, but I personally don't really see how a Plan page could be structured in such a way so as to be more helpful than other pages.

If you want to take a stab at sandboxing one, be my guest =P. -- Dorek Talk External Image 19:32, 26 March 2015 (CET)

I could take a crack at making a sandbox. I'm not sure I have a full understanding of all the details of the Plan, which is why I thought a page would be nice, but I'm having some discussion in S&T on BZP to try to get things straightened out in my own mind. I don't know how to do any of the titlebox/templates/etc., but I can try to look at other pages and learn that way. At the very least, I'll try to get the text ready. I wasn't aware that the Mata Nui's Reawakening page had some Plan details, but I think a Plan page could keep from being redundant. If not, or if it won't fit well within the same style as other articles, then it is what it is. At least I'll have learned something.
On the topic of categorization, I agree it's a big stretch to call it an event. Could it almost be grouped under society? I mean, achieving the Plan was the main goal of a major faction of one of the most powerful races in the MU. That sounds like an aspect of society to me (at least, enough to justify the categorization. Things like the Plan are hard to categorize in the current system). ~ Volitak Boxor (talk) 04:47, 28 March 2015 (CET)
I mean, it could be one of those exceedingly rare pages that doesn't actually have a template, but its ability to defy categorization doesn't necessarily inspire much confidence in it as a page =P -- Dorek Talk External Image 05:17, 28 March 2015 (CET)

I've brought this up in the past once or twice. It would have to contain every twist and turn, as well as mention the fact that no one but Teridax himself fully understood it. it would also have to include all setbacks (i.e., the Toa Metru imprisoning him) as well as his built-in solutions for such setbacks (i.e., the Visorak invasion).

Gallery:Set Functions

There's a lot of images from the Bionicle website depicting the various functions of the sets, so I thought it would make sense to collect them all together on one page. I don't know if we want to include G1 images, too, since there's probably not an easy way to find and collect them all, but there's at least a lot of G2 images readily available.

Yes

Page will be made

Rough draft is in the sandbox. I think this guy deserves a page; the scores to the film trilogy are a part of what makes fans enjoy them so much. There's enough content for a solid page. --TheSkeletonMan939

Category:Characters without Visual Depictions

--MOVED FROM Talk:Main Page--

So I thought it might be handy for organizational purposes to create a category for characters-and possibly creatures and other such things-that have not been depicted visually in the series. I'm talking no set forms, MOC or otherwise, no official artwork, and no contest-winning drawings. This would include the likes of Jerbraz (pre-invisbility, of course), Johmak, Varian, Angonce, Kojol, and so on and so forth. What do y'all think?--Wiriamu (talk) 07:33, 20 October 2015 (CEST)

I think that would be difficult. First of all, it would be a very large category. Second, we have countless Rahi with no image provided, like Cliff Screecher and Crystal Serpents. Would those be considered "characters?" Second, it'll snowball into an argument regarding what constitutes an undepicted character. For instance, Nikila and Nidhiki both have forms we have seen, and forms we haven't. Furthermore, I just don't see the need for it. -- External ImageHeadless Jala 08:49, 20 October 2015 (CEST)

It's an interesting idea. We don't have too many "wiki-specific" mainspace categories, they mostly tend to be focused on in-universe stuff. I could probably go for it. -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:14, 20 October 2015 (CEST)

My thought was that such a category would be limited to characters who have no visual depiction whatsoever-since Nidhiki and Nikla have forms we've seen, they wouldn't bee included. --Wiriamu (talk) 21:58, 20 October 2015 (CEST)

I think that's a good rule to follow. If we were to make this, though, we'd have to be careful about who gets added; there are a few characters, like most of the Toa Hagah, who have visual depictions, but not of their current forms, and someone might wrongly add them to the list because of this. That's my only concern as of now. -- External ImageHeadless Jala 04:46, 27 October 2015 (CET)

Gallery:Nuva Symbols

I found out that in the Nuva Cube article there are more than 6 images of this object i found another but i didn´t put it because i wanted to put this request. I think it should be created a gallery so the page can be more organized and also it can contain the symbols from G1 and G2 as well as the cube.

Yes

  2. Nuva Symbols are coming back in 2016. Seems like it'll be useful, though I agree that Nuva Symbols might be a better gallery title than Nuva Cube. --Volitak Boxor (talk) 20:47, 28 December 2015 (CET)

Personally, I'd recommend expanding it, making it Gallery:Nuva Symbols. It could cover the symbols themselves as well as the cube. SANTA JALA Happy Hahli-days 07:45, 28 December 2015 (CET)

I like this idea a lot better. If you want, I'll try to put together a Sandbox within the next day or so. -- External Image Speak to Me 06:16, 19 January 2016 (CET)

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)
