Article Name

Wouldn't "Okoto Villagers" be better? You could actually reference them that way too instead of constantly having to put {[Villagers (Okoto)|Villagers]]. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs) 20:27, 22 December 2014 (CET)

Maybe Villagers of Okoto would be better. Okoto Villagers sound kind of odd. --Boidoh (talk) 20:31, 22 December 2014 (CET)
I don't care which one the mods go with, as long as it's something better than Villagers (Okoto). :P --Angel Bob (talk) 21:19, 22 December 2014 (CET)
I think Villagers (Okoto) is a fitting name for the time being. --Collector1100 (talk) 22:11, 22 December 2014 (CET)

So... Islanders, anyone? -- Dorek Talk External Image 00:58, 23 January 2015 (CET)

...How did we not think of this? :P Yeah, I'm all for it. It's much smoother and less ungainly than either of the candidates we'd come up with. --Angel Bob (talk) 03:05, 23 January 2015 (CET)
Someone mentioned it (and I recall saying that I really liked the idea) but the only actual usage of the term had been an offhand mention in The Legend, so it wasn't necessarily a good fit. With that press release, even if the I was just a capitalizing error (I doubt it?) it's used consistently enough that I'm for it. -- Dorek Talk External Image 03:16, 23 January 2015 (CET)

I'm thinking Okotans is viable, given not only The Legend but also it's use in The Hunter story section on the official BIONICLE site.--Wiriamu (talk) 21:32, 24 March 2016 (CET)

It's certainly worth considering. I've grown attached to "islanders", but if LEGO sources keep calling them "Okotans", I think our page should reflect that. --Angel Bob (talk) 21:39, 21 April 2016 (CET)
I still prefer Islanders, because A. Their use of Okotan has been inconsistent (it was, at one point, Okotoan) but it also just describes anything belonging to Okoto, not exclusively the people. Islanders is much more specific. -- Dorek Talk External Image 07:57, 22 April 2016 (CET)

I said above that if LEGO sources continued to use "Okotans" as the name for the villagers, I would support changing the page name to reflect that. With the release of Escape from the Underworld and the other books, all of which unerringly use "Okotans" to describe the villagers, along with the website, I think it's time for that to happen. Do you agree, Dorek? --Angel Bob (talk) 01:35, 2 July 2016 (CET)

I'll think about it, but I'm still not a huge fan. -- Dorek Talk External Image 07:42, 2 July 2016 (CET)
Well, as long as you're considering it, I'm satisfied. Perhaps you'll come around. --Angel Bob (talk) 20:31, 4 July 2016 (CET)
I concur with Angel Bob's reasoning.--Wiriamu (talk) 05:08, 13 July 2016 (CET)

Matoran

The Lego Club Magazine here refers to the Islanders as Matoran. Do you guys think a renaming is in order or just a note in the Trivia section? --777stairs (talk) 23:15, 4 January 2017 (CET)

It will be fine as a trivia, along with the Okotan (Because the "Okotan skies."[1]) -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 00:11, 5 January 2017 (CET)
Likely just an error; they definitely were not supposed to be called Matoran, as great as that would have been.
Never saw that advertisement though. Wonder how it slipped under the radar. -- Dorek Talk External Image 03:36, 5 January 2017 (CET)

Takua?

Is the Protector of Fire's son supposed to be Takua?(The preceding unsigned comment was made by Toa Inika)

No. --Boidoh (talk) 23:02, 23 December 2014 (CET)
Maaaaaaybe!
Probably not, but fans have been calling him "Two-kua" apparently? A pretty awful nickname, but that's okay. I mean, we don't know any of the villager names, so whether or not they're old characters reimagined is a possibility. But as it stands, no, he's not. -- Dorek Talk External Image 08:33, 24 December 2014 (CET)
Is he Protector's son? I think he's a son of another villager. Up (talk) 19:25, 24 December 2014 (CET)
Yes, he is the Protector of Fire's son. --Boidoh (talk) 19:33, 24 December 2014 (CET)
Well, actually, it's pretty unclear. Since all the villagers have the same model, the child to whom the Prophecy of Heroes was related might not be the same child as the one that was in Tahu's crowd. --Angel Bob (talk) 20:30, 24 December 2014 (CET)

Listing Appearances

The Books, Comics, and Multimedia sections of this page list the Protectors' appearances, but the Online section lists only animations in which non-Protector islanders have appeared. We can't follow two different rules for the same page, so which one wins out?

Personally, I think we should only list appearances for islanders who are not Protectors. Listing Protector appearances would make this page's section identical to the Protectors' own listing. But what do you guys say? --Angel Bob (talk) 23:47, 1 May 2015 (CEST)

Personally I'd say all Protector appearances would count for Islanders, because all Protectors are technically islanders, but this is the reason why we didn't include appearances for species back in the day. I'm none too fussed either way. -- Dorek Talk External Image 02:42, 2 May 2015 (CEST)

Gallery:Islanders? Anyone

Like I said, Would it not kill the contributors to add a gallery for Islanders? I mean there are more than just protectors. I mean Narmoto has a son, plus there was a comic about a boy that saw his parents brainwashed in the village by the skull spiders. User talk: Appsdata 20:40 (UTC), 15 February 2016.

You could propose one in the AFC if you think one would be beneficial. ζoxHistories External Image

Makuta's Minions

Anyone think that those shadowy Okotans who appeared in the final episode of Journey to One should be listed on here? I would assume that they were corrupted Okotans or something.--Wiriamu (talk) 05:44, 2 March 2017 (CET)

Since we list Skull Creatures and Elemental Beasts among his minions, and they're no more clearly defined than the Okotans, I'd say go for it. --Angel Bob (talk) 08:45, 2 March 2017 (CET)
