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)

Missing Images

Unfortunately, due to the very annoying MLP prank my staff pulled on me back in April, when I began uploading photos they were skipped because these existed in their place. I've been far too busy to fix this, but I can do so today. Thank you for the links, and if you find any more PLEASE post it here so I can fix 'em. --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

Recent Revelation


I'm not entirely sure if you are the right person to bring this up with, but I'll just mention it anyway. In light of the recent reveal of the nature of the Red Star, I've noticed several characters who have previously been killed off in the past (including characters like Matoro and Teridax) have been listed as alive. I know that the new information seems to suggest that a lot of these characters would be alive and well, but I was wondering if it should be removed or not until more info is released.

Also, in regards to characters like Teridax and Matoro, I think it would be safer to still list them as deceased. I don't see how Matoro could still be alive, seeing as his life force was dissolved by the Ignika with what was left of it being scattered across the MU to revive Mata Nui (a range which I think would be too broad for the Red Star to try and collect what little remained of Matoro's essence and piece it back together), and I believe Greg has repeatedly stated that Teridax is permanently dead, so for now at least, I think we should take his word for it. So, should we leave this information up on deceased characters' pages before we start declaring Mutran's back from the grave, or should we take it down for now? --Makuta Mistika 02:32, 21 September 2012 (PDT)

One thing

Could you fix this file link?--FROGGER0 Ribbit?! 'Sig Services' 11:23, 27 September 2012 (PDT)

ZaneZX and LloydZX

kaizx is the brother of ZaneZX and LloydZX. They are members on The Ninjago Wiki. Could you please unban them? Fastcar700

See, I would like to believe you, I really would, but three brothers on the same iPad, using the same IP, signing up within a day of each other? I smell something fishy. --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

New Feature

I'm sorry, I just had to tell you how awesome and hilarious that spam feature for external links is. Did you come up with it?Toa Duran 17:04, 27 November 2012 (PST)


I'm pretty sure these stories got accepted into canon:

They are the ATYU2 contest. So, should we get to adding them?

Lord Nektann

See here. --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

Oh, didn't see that. I'm okay with that, though a lot of people may seem differently. This is kind of 'overreaching', but it would be a nice thing to bring up whenever you have a GregF meeting again. Lord Nektann

It's on the list of things that we might want to bring up, but we're not sure if we want to ask him to do something like that at the moment. We're keeping it fairly simple for the time being; the fact that he just doesn't have the memory for all of the story details like he used to means it's less likely to get a yes anyway. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 12:56, 20 December 2012 (PST)

Red Link Removal

Hey Swert. Do ya think you can fix the link to the general disclaimer here? (I know you can, if you just wake up for one minute :B) --Vartemp 17:01, 30 December 2012 (PST) wait... I'm dumb... >_< ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


How do you start a wiki like this, get no ads and stuff--Vakira 08:16, 3 January 2013 (PST)


So on HS01, Dorek showed your amazing images where you magically ditched annoying text boxes. Now on BS01, I gathered a list of the images suffering from text boxes here. I have no idea if they can be fixed, but if they can, it would be really great to see that happen. This isn't an request, and you don't have to do this it all, but it would be really awesome if you did. If you don't want to, I won't lose any sleep over it. Thanks. Lord Nektann

Unfortunately, the process you are describing is magic, not technology. With digital comics, they often create layers and impose text on a completely separate layer so that they can play around with speech placement design (especially prevalent in the BIONICLE comics, where they animated the whole process). Triggy was responsible for most of the ones from the .swf files back in the day. When they stopped doing digital comics, we basically lost our means of getting them textless. If they exist elsewhere online (as was the case with the Hero Factory comics) then it's possible that we could get them textless, but even then, not always a guarantee; only some of the HF comics ended up being layered anyway, and at a very low resolution. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 19:48, 15 January 2013 (PST)

Short Userpages

What exactly is the deal with it? ?_? --Vartemp 09:23, 20 January 2013 (PST)

It's a cycle. :P At first having a cool userpage was the thing, now the point is to have the shortest UP possible. -Avlok (Talk)
It's a joke. You remember Dorek was famous for refusing to have a user page and threatening to axe anyone who tried to convince him otherwise. Yesterday, I created my userpage with a single word so I could stop seeing the red-link on the RC, joking it was shorter than Dorek's. This is Swert's mock-response.
Speaking of which... Swert, do you really identify as a '-' like I do as Naina? :P I promise I will remember I will not forget 10:32, 20 January 2013 (PST)


A///know this is may be little late actualy a whole late....but Swert how may I fix my userpage? it's a red link and my page is gone...may I create it again?


Hey Swert, Hechidnat here. I just thought that you might like to know about an issue going on with the Savage page. The infobox seems to be having some issues, and it won't bring up the image of Savage from the Dark Hunters guide. --Hechidnat (talk) 22:46, 15 July 2013 (PDT)

That would be some issues we're having with tabber; it's on a few other pages too, and we're working on it (slowly =P). -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 08:44, 16 July 2013 (PDT)

Custom Wiki Skins gone

I noticed recently that I can't access any of the various skins released for this wiki in the past couple of years. All I'm getting are Monobook, Vector, and Classic. What happened to MNOLG and VS01?

--Wikipirate 18:48, 29 July 2013 (PDT)

They got taken out during the server update. We were told that they would be brought back afterwards. It isn't unusual for Swert to drag his feet a little with the skins, though =P ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Swert, Just a note to say that what you do is appreciated. We know that you are a busy guy, and life sometimes gets in the way. But your hard work and dedication to the site, and to Bionicle, in general, are greatly appreciated. --ToaJuaraevo01 (talk) 11:26, 30 August 2013 (PDT)

Uploading font to site

Would it be possible to upload the four metrumatoran font files here (not the readme though, that was just a test) to BS01's resources folder? As the name suggests, it's a font I made for rendering Metru/Mata Nui-style Matoran text, and I thought it could be used instead of Template:MatoranText and maybe even in the infoboxes of MU character pages (here is an example of this, although it doesn't work in Firefox; I think this is because the font isn't hosted locally). Thanks! -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 17:42, 7 December 2013 (PST)

White Ussal?

Picture Sources

Hello Swert! I'm currently doing some copyright-tagging of pictures on the Chronist-Wiki. Usually, a picture gets the "This picture belongs to LEGO" and so on-Stuff, but the following list shows real-life people, so the copyright holder might be someone different. Some pictures come from the LoMN DVD (=belong to LEGO), but I do not know where the others come from. Could you (or someone else who is reading this, I'm adressing this to you because you uploaded most of the pictures) please help me with this?

--Fippede 23:42, 22 September 2014 (CEST)

(Swert's only tagged as the uploader because of the way we changed servers; the original person is lost to time)
Aanchir might be your best bet for tracking down the sources; some of these are from comics or the LEGO Magazine, at least, while others might be from personal websites of the person in question. The GregF one is kosher, since it was taken with Darnzerf at his behest, and then bequeathed to us. I'm fairly certain the Bink ones are okay too.
(wanna do the same thing here on BS01? :U) -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 00:13, 23 September 2014 (CEST)

Ah, I see. Okay, I'll ask Aanchir about it. I agree with you that the pictures, not only the Greg&Bink ones, are most likely okay, but I just want to make sure to mention the source. I'll translate the template to English so that you can get an idea of what I mean. Unfortunately, I won't have the time to tag all 7000 pictures here (NtM and myself only got like 400 of the CW-Pics done so far), but this community is greater by numbers, so it will get the tagging done, I guess.

On Darnzerf's picture: Does this mean that the GNU FDL applies to it? --Fippede 13:53, 23 September 2014 (CEST)

Sounds good. Yeah, the Darnz one is fine. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 19:47, 23 September 2014 (CEST)

Interwiki – Extra Step

Hello, Swert. This is about the message one gets when clicking on an interwikilink: “You are leaving this site! You are being redirected to ...” I think that this is disturbing.

As far as I remember, when the partnership between BS01 and the Chronist-Wiki started, this extra step was put there because of BZPower. If I get this right, BZP only allowed links to BS01, because there are no “dangerous” external links on here. So, I'm not active on BZP, but this policy seems to have changed. For example, my profile page directly links to, without the extra step.

Also, I have noticed, that it is possible to use interwikilinks to link to other pages directly, like arXiv, IMDb and even to Wikis that have absolutely nothing to do with BS01 or BIONICLE. Sidorak and many other pages directly link to a page on Wikipedia without an extra step.

So why does there have to be an extra step to the Chronist-Wiki? There is a partnership between us, I'd even call us sister wikis. Unlike other pages, there even is a link back to BS01 at the target page. Also, that extra step is pretty annoying for me personally, because I switch around between BS01 and CW a lot.

So, I'd be happy, if you would change the interwiki-prefix de from$1 to$1 and change the link in the Sidebar. :-) Of course, I'll do the same thing in the CW, if you think this is fine. --Fippede 18:13, 24 September 2014 (CEST)

I noticed that the other day; I thought it was some weird inbound settings you guys had. I have no idea why it's just your site. I'll get around to changing that too, or someone else will. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 19:10, 24 September 2014 (CEST)

Awesome! Thank you, Dorek! --Fippede 19:16, 24 September 2014 (CEST)

I gave you temp admin powers because I'm on mobile and editing is hard. Have at. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 19:39, 24 September 2014 (CEST)

Umm, thanks, but I'm afraid I still cannot change it. One way to do this is to use Special:Interwiki, then admin powers are useful. Unfortunately, BS01 doesn't have this special page, so one has to have access to the server to change interwiki settings. This is why I originally adressed this to Swert, because I doubt that anyone other than him could change it. xD Anyway, I edited the Common.css, so we got that done, but I guess now we (=you) have to contact Swert about the interwiki. Of course, you can wait until you get back home, there is no hurry ^^

What I could do, is change the link in the Sidebar. But should I only change the one for the Chronist-Wiki, or all of them? --Fippede 20:09, 24 September 2014 (CEST)

Mreh, guess Swert will have to do it then. He'll get to it.... EVENTUALLY! -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 20:32, 24 September 2014 (CEST)

I modified it. It was actually modified in the database, so I had to dig pretty deep to fix it. On the plus side, I also added bing search :D --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

On a related note, I'm the original creator of the skin. Paladox brought the code to GitHub and cleaned it up, as well as modifying the skin quite a bit from it's original iteration at PidgiWiki. If you're not sure how something works, I'm probably the one to blame, because I didn't comment anything (didn't expect for there to be want for it). If there's sloppy code, my fault. :P Feel free to contact me with any questions.--Immewnity (talk) 00:02, 6 October 2014 (CEST)

MP Icons

Hi! Do you happen to have SVG/larger PNG versions of the new MP icons? I'm sure they'll come in handy at some point, plus if we use larger versions the icons will look crisper on screens with high pixel density. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 06:00, 14 December 2014 (CET)

Broken Special Page

Specifically, Gallery of New Files. A page I often frequent, and would be especially helpful right now with the huge wave of things getting uploaded.

Get the following error:

"Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 94371840 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 48000000 bytes) in /home/swert/ on line 543"

Just so, well, somebody knows. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)

Try again~ -- Dorek Talk External Image 19:30, 17 December 2014 (CET)
The cause of this is that one of the files is too large for the server to handle in its request. This error will go away once that file is no longer on that special page (so after you upload enough files to push it off the first page of recent uploads), but it would be a good idea to find which file it is and delete it. In other words, the server is using all the memory it can allocate to try to handle that image but eventually can't and has no more memory to call on. I'm having trouble reproducing this however. --Meiko (talk) 19:34, 17 December 2014 (CET)

Yeah, sorry about that; We had a vandal who insisted on signing up every morning with a dynamic IP uploading inappropriate images. I had to disable it until we can fix it. Feel free to email them to me at swert @ --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

User Offshoot Pages?

Are we still allowed to make personal offshoot pages (for instance, our own sandboxes)? If so, would it be acceptable for me to make a separate page for displaying bios of my own characters? -- Toa Jala The AFC needs your help! 08:56, 19 March 2016 (CET)

Welcome notice

Shouldn't you remove the Welcome notice at the top of your talk page Swert? :P --Luka1184 (talk) 13:55, 7 August 2016 (CET)

Nah, I'm okay with being a newb some days :P --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

it was broken when i got here must've been surel-nuva, better keep an eye on him. --- Creep 06:32, 9 January 2017 (CET)

I just downloaded the picture from BioMedia Project an uploaded here. And it worked on my laptop, so... -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 16:08, 9 January 2017 (CET)
Regardless, I looked into the file and it wasn't in RGB colors, it was set in "indexed RGB" mode which seems to hork the server up, similar to when we used CMYK formats. I also tried to upload it as a PNG, it didn't work, so I swapped to JPG. That seemed to work. No harm, no foul. We're good :) --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)
Okay, I was surprised that these two didn't work for the other pictures what I uploaded are right. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 20:12, 9 January 2017 (CET)

Mistake for Template:WikiNav (?) in Special:RecentChanges

I'm sorry, I have to bother you with this issue, but there is a mistake in Special:RecentChanges. Detailed information here: Talk:Locations. Vezon23 (talk) 01:17, 30 April 2017 (CET)

Rahkshi staffs

Greg said the staffs just focus the Rahkshi's powers. One more reason to get rid of the 7 Rahkshi staffs that answer claims that the shape of the staff doesn't matter, they are just the focus.[1] So Guurahk's and the Rahkshi of Heat Vision's staff are the same weapon, but being held by another Rahkshi. The citation clarifies this. — SurelNuva (Talk) 08:51, 1 July 2017 (CET)

Uploads... no uploads.

After spending an embarrassingly long time looking for the upload button that I knew was there before, I realized that uploads were restricted so the button has disappeared. Do you know why, and more importantly when they will be working again?--Harsulin's Ghost (talk) 20:49, 1 September 2017 (CET)

I've already asked Dorek about it, because I wanted to upload some of the missing instructions. Such as Tahu Mistika and Stars Tahu. — SurelNuva (Talk) 21:02, 1 September 2017 (CET)
Yeah. I got a bunch of those too.--Harsulin's Ghost (talk) 01:48, 2 September 2017 (CET)

Quick Question

A while ago, I uploaded a .png file for the instructions for the 2017 Scorpion polybag (this file). A direct link to the file works just fine, but if you try to link to the info page for the file (like this), an error occurs. Also, the list of uploaded files seems to have broken because of this. The file's resolution was kind of high (2550x3508), but the file size was only around 9 MB, so I'm not sure why these errors are occurring. I mentioned this problem shortly after I uploaded the file, but it was in some out-of-the-way place, and it doesn't seem like the problem has been resolved. Do you know what might be causing the issue, and if so, would you know how to fix it? Thanks! --Volitak Boxor (talk) 04:46, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
