Approved proposals (please make these pages!)
BIONICLE Facebook Page
Page will be made.
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 don’t think this page has even been made yet, but I don’t see why we don’t just make a whole ‘Social media’ page with all of the Bionicle social media accounts including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc. all onto one page and just give them all their own section each. -- FirespitterVakama 08:22 AM, 23 September 2021 (EST)
- Was there a BIONICLE YT channel and Twitter? I don't remember that, I only remember them using the LEGO YT channel. ~ Wolk (talk) 19:10, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
Page will be made.
Regardless of exactly what we call it, I feel as though we need a single page for all the obscure merchandising items Bionicle had during it's run, such as the Toa Mahri Dart Shooter or the Sponge Morbuzakh or even the Soft Foam Takadox Mask and Twin Knives, which clearly aren't important enough to deserve pages of their own but could probably be compiled onto a single page. The only issue I can see with this is that some of these are very difficult to find reliable citations for that extend beyond photographs (Otherwise surely there would be some mention of the wearable glow-in-the-dark Piraka teeth on the wiki) --Snaptor (talk) 01:24, 25 September 2017 (CET)
Comments on Merchandise
I think this will be a good page to have - but i think we have to be very careful in drawing the line between regular sets and stuff and all the ancillary merchandise that was available. Intelligence4 (talk) 00:48, 28 September 2017 (CET)
I found a TTV topic that has a huge list of this sort of thing. It obviously wouldn't qualify as an actual source, but it could certainly help as a sort of "checklist" to see exactly what sort of things we're looking for. Are we allowed to link to TTV here? (Also, on a more amusing note, I'm not sure I've seen something gather eight votes this quickly in ages, I was expecting this to be controversial. =P) Snaptor (talk) 11:10, 28 September 2017 (CET)

I've been interested in documenting Bionicle merchandise and saw that there were plans for a page to be made. However, it doesn't seem like much progress was made on it. I've drafted up a possible merchandise page in my sandbox.
I define "Merchandise" as any officially liscensed Bionicle product that isn't a set or media (such as book, movie, game, or pretty much anything not already well documented here). I sorted my list by year and whatever partner company produced the product. It's not a perfect system, as I'm still trying to figure out how to address things like Legoland gift shop items, Shop@Home exclusives, and freebies that weren't widly available. Most of my findings have been through old BZPower articles. Currently, I made it through 2003.
If there is another way I should submit a page that's already been approved, please let me know.
Update: Moved to approved pages based on Surel's suggestion.
- I really appreciate the work you put into the topic, and since it was approved last time, I don't think we need a new poll for it. This could just go under the existing part on the top of the page, as a draft finally for the approved page. And in my opinion when you feel like it, you could make it into an actual page too! :) --Surel (Talk) 17:42, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

HEROSector01: Add Roblox and Poptropica Sponsored Events
Page will be made.
This one is for HEROSector01, as I tried to find an Articles for Creation page over there but couldn’t find one, so instead I felt like putting this here. Hero Factory had a Poptropica advertisement and two Roblox events where players could earn prizes. For Poptropica, it was a minigame level, and for Roblox, two games. You can look up more about them online but basically for Poptropica it was promoting the 2010 line of sets while for Roblox, they promoted 2012 (Breakout) and 2013 (Brain Attack). From what I can gather, Poptropica had a Stormer outfit and his ice blaster gear, while Roblox had quite a bit of prizes and Catalog items. -- FirespitterVakama (talk) 08:23 AM, 29 November 2021 (EST)

Create Quest for the Toa Walkthrough
Page will be made.
Something I've been interested in working on for a while is a walkthrough for Quest for the Toa. As one of the few games with something of a canon status (much less one that covers an exclusive part of the Bionicle timeline), I think it would be nice to build a walkthrough for it on BS01. I don't see this being a narrative walkthrough like those of MNOG or MNOG 2 (since what little narrative there is is pretty much recycled across every level). Rather, I've talked to Swert and gotten his permission to use the one originally published on Gamefaqs as a starting point, then refining it and expanding it with all the dialogue and any other pertinent information. This way, anyone who gets stuck on a level, or who wants to reference all the dialogue or information easily can find the information they need. --Gonel (talk) 23:01, 21 June 2022 (UTC)
Create Category:Set Collection, and Category:Supplementary Sets
Category will be made.
These would apply to different set pages, similar to Category:Small Sets, Category:Medium Sets, Category:Large Sets, Category:Promotional Sets, Category:Playsets, Category:Special Sets, and Category:Canister Sets.
Category:Set Collection would cover set collections, such as 10202 Ultimate Dume and K8605 Toa Metru Kit I.
Category:Supplementary Sets would cover supplementary sets such as 8525 BIONICLE Masks, 6638 Ultimate Creatures Accessory Kit, 3259 Shooter + Disc, and 5002941 BIONICLE Hero Pack.
I choose supplementary as "accessory" has been used both for this kind of set, as well as for gear such as watches and backpacks.
Comments on creating the categories
I think I'd prefer a different name for supplementary sets if it's going to include stuff like gear (Category:Gear is fine lol) but I think ammo packs and stuff can still fall under collectibles, barely. -- Talk 07:20, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
- I wasn't planning on including Gear, which is why I didn't go for calling Accessory Sets. ~ Wolk (talk) 09:16, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
- Eh, then I don't think Supplementary Sets would be necessary, it's a bit too broad of a definition. -- Talk 10:54, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
So... Mamru. According to the Trivia section, Mamru's speech box refers to him as Mamoru, while characters consistently call him Mamru: This occurs twice, once from Whenua, and once from Azibo. In definition for the character, is he called Mamoru, which likely is what assigns the name in the dialogue box, but further more, the conversation file too says
MamoruConversation.swf This would mean the two spellings are equally weighed as far as occurances are concerned.
Now, the vast majority of new names in MNOG II are taken from other languages, such as Finnish or Japanese. However, as far as has been found, Mamru is not a word. Mamoru on the other hand is a Japanese name, commonly given the meaning "protect," and according to some sites, it means "of the earth," which, regardless of that meaning's accuracy, may be how it came to be used by Templar. This is why I ultimately believe Mamoru is the correct spelling, and Mamru is the typo. ~ Wolk (talk) 19:08, 12 September 2022 (UTC)

Meta: Community Terminology
I think it might be nice to have a page with frequently used terms that crop up in the community (AFOL, MoC, that kind of stuff). I'm not beholden to the name. -- Talk 17:19, 13 September 2022 (UTC)
