Hey, that's a pretty nice job. Well done (or to someone else if they did it). --Vartemp 12:02, 13 March 2012 (PDT)

I did :P Thanks --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)
Not bad, Bossman. :D Obitor

May I ask why the main page is so plain?--BIONICLE7628 16:27, 21 April 2012 (PDT)

I've been too busy at work to coordinate any effort to update it with content. That's all. --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

A Thousand Years Untold 2 Winners?

Considering S&T Contest 6: A Thousand Years Untold 2 has reached its close, will the winning entries be added to Biosector01 in the near future? Legolover-361 17:08, 22 April 2012 (PDT)

Dorek talked about that on the last podcast episode he was on, saying something about not having as concrete of canon confirmation from Greg as past contests have. He would be the one to talk to I think, because Greg's not going to be reappearing. `Song

Not at all? ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

From everything I know, I would be extremely surprised if he ever came back, especially in any comparable capacity to the past. `Song
According to this recent Bonesiii post, the contest entries didn't need final approval from GregF because the contest's premise was already approved and, I assume, because the judges ensured the entries adhered to Bionicle canon. Legolover-361 07:53, 16 July 2012 (PDT)
My point was that even with all of those tenants in place, I, personally (and I understand that the others feel this way as well) don't feel comfortable with it, especially given a previous instance, that being my own winning entry. For the Core War story contest, the initial premise was approved (suggested, actually) by Greg, and went through what I can only assume was a similarly rigorous judging and analyzing process. Even with all of that, after being selected as the winner, I was still asked to re-write the introduction by Greg, because what happened didn't fit in with his overall vision (specifically, of the Great Beings) and didn't mesh with the way he was going to expand upon them in the future (I portrayed them as cynical scientists, he saw them as repentant philosophers).
I'm not saying any of the current stories are like that, I'm not saying that there was or ever would be wrong with winners from ATYU2... but in point of fact, we can't know with 100% certainty. That is always how we've tried to run our ship over here, that's always how the fan base at large has been when it comes to "maybes" and "presumably"'s, that's how Greg worked to try and help us shape the story. I get that a lot of work went into the contest, I get that some of the winners may feel less than toward us for this attitude (our very own Grant Sud was one of the winners, if you recall), but I'm trying my best not to squander the spirit we have all worked together to build. I'm sorry the contest didn't have the benefit of timing on its side, but in the end, there were a few contributing factors that led to this decision, and I wish it could have come together a bit more cohesively. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 13:24, 16 July 2012 (PDT)

Please Fix Main Page

On this page it says that it is the Featured Chronicle but the Main Page says "hi".--FROGGER0 21:28, June 22, 2012 (CST)

The staff have been more focused on restoration of the articles, not to mention RL obligations, rather than more minor things like the FC. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Bug

The Threatening Dume link on KZNO2's page. It's eithier a bug or a error. - FROGGER0 20:13, 5 July 2012 (PDT)

It was a link to a old archive of the Dume page that's not there anymore. Nothing more. -Avlok (Talk)
