Comprehensive best order of consumption?

Hey guys, it's been eons since I interacted with Bionicle in as much depth as I did pre-2010 (like geez that was almost a third of my life ago). So I was wondering, has someone ever made a list that documents the best order of consumption for all the canon and/or semi-canon media (books, serials, animations, etc.) of the original universe? If not I would think it would be a useful guide to have here on this wiki for both all the newcomers to Bionicle who want to explore the original universe, as well as all of the old(er) people like myself who have started to forget things. Thoughts on this suggestion? -- External Image (Toa Zoxim/IDNK since apparently the image has broken)

There is one on BZP that I totally said I would incorporate somehow and I haven't and I will. -- Dorek Talk External Image 10:01, 23 February 2015 (CET)
Haha k that sounds good. If I have time I'll see if I can help out -- External Image
Sweet. -- Dorek Talk External Image 01:52, 26 February 2015 (CET)

Feature proposal

Hey guys, so with Bionicle 2015 underway and [hopefully] a new wave of Bionicle fans being brought into the theme, I thought now could be a good time to make BS01 a community with more interaction among its members, both socially and constructively towards the wiki. Since BS01 is officially a registered LEGO Users Group, it feels right to allow its members to communicate more effectively on social and constructive levels on this site. I feel like implementing a new feature, a chatroom, to this wiki could allow for that interaction and socialization among members. The chat extension, which was developed by BS01's affiliates at Brickimedia, has several functions that could allow new fans and senior members of the BS01 community to interact with each other, whether it be talking about Bionicle or about the wiki, which can be easier for new members than talk pages (or just quicker to use for anyone), and is more engaging than any "social" aspects of BS01 such as the community portal. As a LEGO User Group, it's important for members to be in touch with each other and be able to have that method of communication with each other, and a live chat is the easiest way to do that. The chat extension is very lightweight on server resources (so we don't have to worry about the server crashing or anything), is able to be moderated (such as kicking off of chat or blocking a user from accessing chat) by a chat moderator user group or by administrators, supports private messaging, and is easily accessible on the wiki by any member. If you have a Brickimedia account (or create one), you can test out the chat extension at http://en.brickimedia.org/wiki/Special:Chat. It's just an idea to allow for some more member-to-member interaction in this community. Feel free to let me know what your thoughts on this wiki feature are, and if you have any questions feel free to ask. --Meiko (talk) 23:33, 23 February 2015 (CET)

Already said that I want it~ -- Dorek Talk External Image 00:04, 24 February 2015 (CET)


Background

Just so you guys know, the new background makes it impossible to read certain things (such as things in page descriptions).--Kopaka Master of Ice (talk) 13:04, 25 February 2015 (CET)

Yes, it's very pretty, but the color of links should probably be changed -- Tables of Contents are now almost completely illegible (!). Maybe stick with some shade of blue? --Angel Bob (talk) 16:35, 25 February 2015 (CET)
@Kopaka Master of Ice: Were you referring to the link colors as well? That's something we noticed last night. That'll get fixed. Anything else? -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:53, 25 February 2015 (CET)
Mainly table of contents and categories. There are some others, but I don't know what to call them.--Kopaka Master of Ice (talk) 21:34, 25 February 2015 (CET)

Right, that has to do with the link colors. That seems to be the big one =P. -- Dorek Talk External Image 22:18, 25 February 2015 (CET)

In my opinion the links should be blue. It is normal and looks good. :P--Kopaka Master of Ice (talk) 22:24, 25 February 2015 (CET)
Blue is the plan for standard things, like the table of contents and the editing boxes, so we're working on fixing that. -- Dorek Talk External Image 22:33, 25 February 2015 (CET)
Good, there's a lot of stuff I can't see. Don't Ever make the links white again --DL 00:58, 26 February 2015 (CET)
I do what I want! However I did not actually want this, so yeah yeah it'll be fixed. -- Dorek Talk External Image 01:15, 26 February 2015 (CET)

Glad to know it'll be changed, this is probably the only issue I have with an otherwise great skin (vector <3) »Zapnox«

Tabs on Character Templates

The tab switching on various templates (Toa, Rahi, etc.) seems to be broken for me. I tested with multiple skins and browsers, and it still doesn't work. Any ideas?
And now that I've noticed, the gen-switcher on the top left of various pages also seems to have disappeared... »Zapnox«

It appears to be a mass JS thing, since the twitter feed somehow disappeared too. I'm not really sure why? It was working up until it wasn't. Might be related to using vector (Tomana will be happy =P), so that's something we'll have to figure out. -- Dorek Talk External Image 19:18, 26 February 2015 (CET)
I'm wondering if this skin change (setting the default skin to a vector variant) required some extra backend changes, because I've been using the default vector skin since like forever, and all the tabs and gen-switches worked totally fine. Can't comment about the twitter feed since I barely visit the MP anyway, haha. »Zapnox«
It's probably related to the two unneeded closing braces at the end of Mediawiki:Common.js causing a syntax error. --maxim21 19:47, 26 February 2015 (CET)
Well HOW ABOUT THAT.
Thanks =P. -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:26, 26 February 2015 (CET)
The twitter feed's still dead though :( »Zapnox«
Refresh your cache or GET OUT. -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:34, 26 February 2015 (CET)
...nevermind, I'm just dumb, Adblock and Ghostery were hiding it. Sometimes I just forget they're there. »Zapnox«
Yeah, adblock does that =P. Should be all good now~ -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:47, 26 February 2015 (CET)

Fishers' Categorical Greg Reference

According to her blog on BZP, the light at the end of the tunnel approacheth. We going to find a way to incorporate it into BS01/use it as reference for Greg F details? ζoxHistories External Image

Cite it like we do everything else? -- Dorek Talk External Image 03:23, 3 August 2015 (CEST)
we need to be sure to actually cite it though... So much content on here isn't cited. Intelligence4 (talk)

Past Featured Page

Hey guys, I've got a weirdly specific question for y'all - just because I've been trying to figure it out myself, and can't quite seem to do it. I remember, a few months ago, that there was a Featured page on here, and it was a really interesting little blurb, but I can't remember which character it was about. It was a character from the 2009 saga, and the blurb talked about how, although the character had been reduced to a few angry lines in "The Legend Reborn," he had been more or less the real bad guy of 2009. It also said that he was actually one of the more interesting villains from Bionicle because he wasn't fighting for power or anything like that, it was really just to save his people. Any ideas? Thanks! - Agenttv (Talk) 08:21 22 August, 2015 (CEST)

Yeah, that'd be Tuma! You can check out a page's previous revisions by clicking "history" towards the top... however, the code for the Main Page is actually on another page, so you can check out its history over there. The description you're thinking of can be found in this revision. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 08:25, 22 August 2015 (CEST)
Whenever I write the FA's I always try and approach things from a new perspective. I know the idea of Tuma being a nuanced character isn't exactly novel, but it was just interesting to see how the contrast of his attitudes based on his various media appearances changed. -- Dorek Talk External Image 08:39, 22 August 2015 (CEST)
Awesome!! Thank you guys so much - love this community!! - Agenttv (Talk) 17:17 22 August, 2015 (CEST)

Image Sizing

Why are images (ones being treated as external at least) misbehaving suddenly? I thought it was a Main page issue, but Door Wreck's sig is also messed up. ζoxHistories External Image

Probably to do with some bugfixes related to external linking. I'll change my sig until it gets fixed. -- Dorek Talk External Image 06:42, 8 October 2015 (CEST)

Issue should be fixed now, if you still see randomly sized images, re-save the page and they should be fixed. --Metax「Talk Page」 07:17, 9 October 2015 (CEST)
