Talk:2015 Online Animations

From BIONICLEsector01

So, the kicker; do we include The Legend Animation on here, or keep it separate? It functions basically as an "episode zero", and is included on the list of things on the website, but is not labeled as anything specific, so could theoretically exist standalone. -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:28, 28 November 2014 (CET)

I guess, because these are more teasers than episodes. But what would we name the page? I suggest "2015 Teaser Animations". Toa Green Ninja - Bearer of the Mask of Spinjitzu (talk) 21:28, 28 November 2014 (CET)
I wouldn't call them teasers, they're functioning as one of the primary story mediums, from what I can tell. Just 2015 Online Animations might not be a horrid choice. -- Dorek Talk External Image 01:16, 29 November 2014 (CET)
So you basically want information on every animation released from NYCC to the end of next year on one page? I can try. Toa Green Ninja - Bearer of the Mask of Spinjitzu (talk) 02:48, 29 November 2014 (CET)
I'm not really sure what the context was of a lot of the NYCC animatics; are they stuff we're going to see in the future, or was it just conceptual pieces? I'd say wait until they actually debut until we can be sure. -- Dorek Talk External Image 03:17, 29 November 2014 (CET)


Well I guess that leaked Q&A paper was correct... Merlin Mann did write it. --Boidoh (talk) 21:06, 16 December 2014 (CET)

Vahi

Where is it in the 3rd episode? I think I see something at the one minute mark, but it isn't very clear... --Boidoh (talk) 21:09, 16 December 2014 (CET)

Pause it at 0:55. It takes up most of the frame lol.
Which reminds me, I think we should definitely note the time of their appearance in the trivia note. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)
Oooh... I was looking at it from the wrong angle...
I guess we can do that.--Boidoh (talk) 21:13, 16 December 2014 (CET)

Appearance

So how are we going to label this under the appearance section, just 2015 Online Animations or every individual animation separately? --KZN02, The Master of Tediousness (Talk|Contribs) 22:27, 16 December 2014 (CET)

I think each episode should be listed separately, with no mention of "2015 Online Animations" anywhere... They're no different than issues of a comic book. Which is why I never liked putting these all on one page in the first place. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)
My issue was that we don't know how many episodes they're planning, or when they're going to be released, etc. Heck, it's not even 2015 yet and they just dropped the first three episodes on us. Comics were on a regular schedule, so it was much easier to predict; if we get 20 animations before July, that tends to get a bit unwieldy in terms of page count an usability. Even then, at only 90 seconds an episode, I don't think there's enough to warrant a page anyway. Personally, I like the system now; the respective episodes (let's say LOSS appears in Episode 1 and Episode 3) go underneath the banner of 2015 online animations. It's more direct and specific. -- Dorek Talk External Image 05:37, 17 December 2014 (CET)

Foreign languages

Episodes 5 and 6 have been released in Czech and Episodes 5-9 have all been released in Italian. Anyone here speak either or both languages? --Jswanson37 (talk) 21:57, 26 January 2015 (CET)

Unfortunately neither, but the assorted forums have done a good job at piecing together some of the events, and that's apparently what we're going off of. Remember to use spoiler tags! -- Dorek Talk External Image 22:16, 26 January 2015 (CET)

All the episodes were removed from Lego's youtube channel, it seems. Is this cause for concern, or do we just proceed as we were?--Willess12 (talk) 17:55, 27 January 2015 (CET)

I'm not really surprised; they obviously weren't supposed to be put up when they were. Keep putting the stuff in spoiler tags, and I'll figure it if we should remove it. -- Dorek Talk External Image 19:25, 27 January 2015 (CET)

Does it make any sense? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mynh6ppYBg&feature=youtube_gdata_player -- Surel-nuva (talk) 17:23, 16 September 2015 (CEST)

There's already transcripts and stuff up, but I'd wait until the full episodes get released in english before adding the info. -- Dorek Talk External Image 20:10, 16 September 2015 (CEST)

List of

Should we create a separate page for the episode list, sort of like how wikipedia does it? This page could be used for things like a general summary, the information we have (maybe discuss language version differences?) and a character list or something, while the episode list would be a table so it's less precarious than the current formatting, and probably include the video list as well.

Also divide it up into seasons? I don't think we have enough for individual season pages, but they're considered separate, right? -- Dorek Talk External Image 10:04, 15 July 2015 (CEST)

I second all of these ideas. --Angel Bob (talk) 06:20, 16 July 2015 (CEST)

New name

Wouldn't the Okoto Online Animations be a better name for that page? Because the Bohrok Online Animations are not called 2002 Online Animations. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 21:13, 22 July 2016 (CET)

Maybe they should be! -- Dorek Talk External Image 21:55, 22 July 2016 (CET)
I'd be in favor of Okoto Online Animations, myself. --Angel Bob (talk) 22:59, 24 July 2016 (CET)
I'm trying to shy away from fan designations. I don't really see "Okoto Online Animations" in common parlance as it is, so this definitely feels more encyclopedic. -- Dorek Talk External Image 23:54, 24 July 2016 (CET)
That makes sense, but be aware that BS01 often informs the common parlance. Our City of the Mask Makers page was originally titled "Ancient City", and I still see people calling it that (capital letters and everything) today. If we'd named it "Okoto Online Animations", maybe that would have caught on. I'm not really going anywhere specific with this, but it's something to keep in mind. --Angel Bob (talk) 17:32, 25 July 2016 (CET)
Well, Ancient City was the name it was originally referred to as (before the full name was revealed) but I get your point. That said, I'm trying to avoid that kind of thing, if I'm being honest; I would much rather take the name from something the fandom already uses rather than give the fandom something that might be divisive or not well received. The previous animation names were mostly taken retrospectively. -- Dorek Talk External Image 00:24, 26 July 2016 (CET)
