Just wanted to give a big thank you for updating all those video links! Good stuff. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 06:39, 27 August 2017 (CET)

I wonder why we don't use the reference/citation format what I used in the video names, and on the Aquatic Power Blade instead of the reference list. Sometimes it's bug me when I see the long list of references on the pages. Also, we have most of the sets' instructions on our wiki, so why don't we use them instead of the external ones from the — SurelNuva (Talk) 15:43, 27 August 2017 (CET)
I'll defer to the other staff on the first question. As for the second one, yeah let's use locally hosted instructions when possible. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 20:22, 27 August 2017 (CET)
I've posted some suggestions on the Splash's talk page recently. — SurelNuva (Talk) 20:27, 27 August 2017 (CET)
I've made a sandbox about the replaced refs. The Other Kanohi page was full of them, so I chose that one. — SurelNuva (Talk) 17:01, 29 August 2017 (CET)
@Morris, what's gonna happen? — SurelNuva (Talk) 23:33, 8 September 2017 (CET)

I think before making any more changes, we should have a discussion, maybe on the main page talk, about where to go from here in terms of citations. Some people have spoken out in favor of exclusively inline citations, while others have said they want all citations to point to a References section. Best to talk it out, preferably with Dorek and Swert weighing in. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 09:22, 9 September 2017 (CET)


Hey man, please try to keep a friendly tone on here. I'm referring to this edit specifically. Everyone has made editing mistakes before, you and me included. Also, everyone's on here for fun, so if people don't feel welcome, they won't edit, and the site won't get better. Thanks, -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 20:46, 29 October 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I know, I was just out of mood, and exactly regretted the summary after the eduts were done. — SurelNuva (Talk) 08:29, 30 October 2017 (UTC)


your edit summary here... was that a real quote? if so where's it from?

BIONICLE Legends 8: Downfall page 32. It's at the foot of the page what I used for citing the Dekar-memory stuff on the page. :) — SurelNuva (Talk) 18:56, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
i gotta find the time to reread those sometime haha Intelligence4 (talk) 05:20, 18 March 2018 (UTC)

Re: Wolfrat

I was thinking the same thing as soon as I saw the "wolfrat" design! That does mean that one of us needs to reach out to him... and with Greg having recused himself from BZP, and the LMB forums now shut down, I'm not sure how one can get in contact with him nowadays.

By the way, while we're discussing Rahi... if you're wondering why I haven't been citing MGttU for the creation of each Rahi, it's just because it's one of the few BIONICLE books I don't actually own. Because it's a bad idea to cite something you haven't actually read (since that easily leads to spreading misinformation), I've decided to play it safe and just let other people cite it. --PeabodySam (talk) 20:45, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

while i'm replying to the other one, i'll just step in here... i know there was a pdf version of that book floating around the internet at some point, either on reddit or bzpower or something. the only book i haven't been able to find is the bionicle: world one, which is a huge bummer haha. almost everything else should be on the internet somewhere if you google it. Intelligence4 (talk) 05:20, 18 March 2018 (UTC)


I have a question, what happened to the user known as Bold Clone? I only ask because his page is still there on this site and his page shows nothing on there. Do you know what happened to him? (User: Kota9999) Kota9999 (talk) 18:47, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

I'm sorry I don't know, I never really had a conversation with him. — SurelNuva (Talk) 20:25, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

Oh, I see. Maybe previous users know who he was (User: Kota9999)

Oh really?

You reverted my Hunter Mask edits for unnecessary wording? I was trying to have the page make sense Kota9999 (talk) 17:43, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Don't get me wrong, I didn't want to be offensive, I've just have some really bad weeks/months/, and I can be misunderstood. The page makes sense, it means the same what you exposed with more words. "[Used to weaken the creatures] to unite with it [with the hunter mask's power]" makes sense since it a verb-based structure and means the same as "make them unite with him" and "teleporting" as a gerund also makes sense and means the same as "being able to teleport." — SurelNuva (Talk) 21:31, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Oh (User:Kota9999) Kota9999 (talk) 20:27, 10 September 2018 (UTC) is gone....

If you now try going to the site it transfers over to Lego Star Wars..... (User:Kota9999) Kota9999 (talk) 18:56, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

It's working but you only if you search for it like this :) — SurelNuva (Talk) 19:01, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Oh! Still online I see....I still wonder how long it will be until it’s taken off (again) after the original site was shut down (User:Kota9999)

Well, using the link now in 2019 just brings you to Lego's main website, which now tells me that G2's website has been fully removed. (User:Kota9999)


I'm not against shortcuts, I was just trying to hide it on the actual template page (so that we don't have a red link to 'Set'). I assume the tag should just be placed elsewhere for it not to break, though I don't know where exactly. »Zapnox« 16:39, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Well, I originally just put the shortcut link to every set pages, but Morris said it is to complicated, (or something similar, it was a while ago) so I inserted it into the template. But if we put the include only tag the shortcut will not appear on the other pages, as I've seen. The current solution may not be a good solution for that, but it's still not a bad one, I think. I'm not a coder, so someone else could come up with a better version someday, I hope, which doesn't show the shortcut on the template, but does on the set-pages. — SurelNuva (Talk) 16:51, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Product Descriptions

If you're going to add those, could you maybe possibly start here so that we have everything in one nice centralized location? -- Dorek Talk External Image 04:53, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Okay, I might be able to start there. Sorry for being late with the answer, I didn't have too many free-time lately. In RL I had much to do, and I worked a lot... okay I had no free-time at all, that was behind my mostly inactive status, I'm so sorry.— SurelNuva (Talk) 19:01, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Radiak Ref Link

Thanks for fixing that for me. I'm not sure how my edit ended up with two brackets. I have no idea how these references work LOL. I really appreciate the help. -- Toa Jala Converse 02:58, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Mobile site

Hey, we're thinking about removing BS01's dedicated mobile view because the desktop view adapts to small screens now. If I'm not mistaken you edit pretty much exclusively through the mobile view, so I don't want to remove it without getting your input. Have you tried reading and editing BS01 through the desktop view? (There should be a link to it at the bottom of the mobile view.) If so, what do you think of it? Are there any features that could be improved? Or if you haven't tried using the desktop view, could you try it out and see what you think? Thanks! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 23:28, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

Oh, thank you for asking my opinion on that. I tried it, and, for me the desktop view is better than the mobile site. I used to edit the pages on PC back then, when I was more active, so the desktop view solved every problem what I have with the mobile version. It is much nicer when I'm looking at the recent changes on an article. The differences between the two versions, and the page below them is clearer, and easier to read. My only nitpick could be when the sidebar is activated it's overlapping the page, but this could also be a problem only on my device. And I'm sorry for my bad english, ever since I begun to work, I used it less and less, and now I'm unsure that it is understandable or not. — SurelNuva (Talk) 11:50, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback! I think I'll disable the mobile view then. When you say the sidebar is overlapping the page, do you mean it completely blocks the page so you can only see the sidebar? The sidebar is supposed to cover the left part of the page and leave the right part visible. Then you can tap the right part to close the sidebar. I can mess with the CSS if the sidebar isn't working correctly. Also your English is very understandable, don't worry! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 19:49, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Also, what do think of the book citations on Tahu (Generation 1)? They should appear when you hover over them on a computer or tap them on a mobile device. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 20:01, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Oh, don't worry. I meant it covered the half page, and it didn't want to leave, but apparently it seems like I only had connection problems, for now it works fine. With the sidebar, I noticed when the hungarian language was chosen, there was a 'BIONICLEsector01' subscription over the icon and the 'BS01 Wiki' script. I made a screenshot, but this problem resolves itself when I switch the language to english in the preferences. Other than that I have no problem with this.
I saw it, and I like the way how the information is hidden, but my problem is the long list of references in the end of the page. I know, I know, on most of the wikis retains that same method, but if we could merge the two, the hidden script, and the outside citations (like the BookCitation & co.), it would be pretty nice. We would have organized pages, with "hidden" sources, (as I assume the Lein page will have the same fate and it only has citations no other sources iirc) we wouldn't have a half-page list of references. :) — SurelNuva (Talk) 20:21, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Cool, glad it's working now. And thanks for pointing that bug out. I'll look into it. As for the references section, we could do something like Wookieepedia where the References section is small and you scroll through it. What do you (and others) think? -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 20:48, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
It works on PC, and maybe here it would work on desktop mode. But on the mobile Wookieepedia page, it's just a very long list. Maybe because it runs on a different server and don't have and adapting desktop version I guess? — SurelNuva (Talk) 21:01, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Ah I didn't check on mobile, sorry. Yeah Wikia has a separate mobile site, which is probably why it didn't show up for you. I've set up a demo for small screens on Tahu (Generation 1). Also, the logo issue should be resolved now. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 23:42, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

I like it, at first I didn't even notice it while I checked the bottom of the page. And yes, the logo issue is solved, thanks.— SurelNuva (Talk) 07:01, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

Recently, I checked the Timeline page, and on the mobile version, the display is broken, at least on my phone. Same with any other subpages, the infobar goes out of screen, and can't be moved. — SurelNuva (Talk) 09:44, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

Update, the same thing appears on the main page. — SurelNuva (Talk) 16:06, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
Do you mean that the top bar is not fixed to the top of the screen? If so, that's not a bug, it was a design choice. Since the bar is transparent, if it stayed fixed to the top of the screen while you scrolled, you wouldn't be able to read it since the article text under it would be visible. If you mean something else, can you provide a screenshot? -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 18:55, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
I took some screenshots, here's the gallery. The whole table, containing the links to the individual Timeline subpages, is immovable, and doesn't display on the screen properly. I can see only what is presented on the screenshots.— SurelNuva (Talk) 20:33, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
Will these help? — SurelNuva (Talk) 21:07, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
That issue should be fixed now. Temporarily anyway. The real solution is to redesign the Main Page, Timeline, etc. to be less wide.... -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 07:21, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, I think it's fine like this, at least I like it.— SurelNuva (Talk) 14:16, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
The navigation bar's first column on the recent changes page is still broken, as the navigation bar can only be moved towards the left side (to show what was't shown in the right side) of the screen. — SurelNuva (Talk) 14:20, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
Would you mind if I just remove the navigation on mobile? It's so wide as-is that I don't see how it's very useful. If you (or others) want it to stay, I can work on a temporary fix. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 06:02, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

I need help on HS01

Hey, I've been updating quite a lot on HS01 wiki, but I need help on how to insert images into a few new pages. The pages I'm trying to create are for that of Splitface's Weapons, The Poison Plasma Gun and the Shredding Claw. -User: Kota9999

Do we have images of the weapons on the wiki? — SurelNuva (Talk) 09:56, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

Rahi pages

Thank you for updating all of those Rahi pages! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 03:32, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Well, I'm just trying to be more active, as I used to be... with more or less success.:D — SurelNuva (Talk) 14:26, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

On using podcasts as sources for pronunciations

I wouldn't say Greg's podcasts can be used as a source on pronunciations, and perhaps not the movies either. Wolk seems to agree here, as he removed the pronunciations of the Agori. Greg has pronounced things in various ways over the years, even the same things. He also says Vakama and Matau in a really weird, fast way. Voice actors and narrators are people and can accidentally screw up pronunciations too, or just not know beforehand what something is supposed to canonically sound like. Personally, I wish the story team had just figured out a basic Matoran phonology and made a guide out of it. That way you would also not have "i" being "ee" in certain words and "eye" in others. (compare noo-ee and try-new-mah). And what's with "zya" being pronounced "ZUH"??? LOL, so random. --Lukas Exemplar (talk) 15:23, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Greg basically said that the Klakk should be pronunced as track and in the podcast it's pretty clear, but I'll update it :) — SurelNuva (Talk) 15:31, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
