Hullo! They call me Toa of Cheese; many moons ago, I was invited to join a few episodes of the BS01 podcast. At some point, I'd been in talks with Kraah to come back on, but I believe he left very shortly after. Since getting involved with the BS01 recording community again via the upcoming audio recording of Tales of the Toa, I thought it'd be a blast to get involved in the podcast again. I'm sure your roster is more than full, but if you ever find it a person short, I'd be thrilled to participate again. Toa of Cheese 01:58, 24 August 2012 (PST)

Can you check this user? Looks like an ad bot to me. Also, I forgot if linking to external sites are allowed in here. ~Mattym

Hey do we add appearances to objects and weapons? cause I can add a lot of those in. SuperToanuvaman 20:03, 26 February 2012 (PST)

Well, you uploaded pictures of ponies instead of BIONICLEs, changed official quotes.... generally that's enough to be banned for, donchya agree Twi? ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Indeed, my fellow Avenger. I'm pretty sure that counts as vandalism. We'll see what Swert has to say about it. --~Twilight Avenger~ 22:22, 1 April 2012 (PDT)

The queens's changes were for a greater good. However, your kin's blindness has doomed BS01 to an eternal era of darkness... and lack of muffins.--Derpy H96ves' Witnesses 12:27, 2 April 2012 (PDT)

I miss the muffins already. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)

I'm not sure if this is overly noteworthy at this point, but the Image of the Week header has a period at the end of it (so it says "Image of the week."). Once again, I'm not sure if this is particularly noteworthy, but just in case... -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 19:43, 6 May 2012 (PDT)

Wasn't my fault, that's how it was handed to me. I just haven't had time to fix it. Now if you excuse me, I'll be having panic dreams about what scenarios happen in my Death Star build tomorrow x_x --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

I would ask another staff member, I'm on vacation and my time is rather limited. :P--Bionicleman 20:30, 11 June 2012 (PDT)


when restoring a page, should i save the image from the page on the wayback machine and the upload it? Or just put in the no image "image" for the time being?-- ~Griff 01:30, 18 July 2012 (PDT)

Naming Day

I didn't mean that Naming Day wasn't Canon. We know it was introduced to provide an excuse to change those names from their Maori versions, and subsequent uses of Post-Naming Day names in 04-05 was a continuance of honoring the results of the Maori suit. I just thought that we should reflect that decision. A note about the names, in the trivia section say, would suffice to chronicle their usage. Besides, Naming Day isn't even mentioned in Hewkii's article, so why use the old name? ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Makuta Fest?

I've never heard of it. Since it's my first year on the wiki, could you tell me exactly what it is?--FROGGER0 Ribbit?? 12:24, 19 July, 2012 (CST)

Err... I put the top image into a frame, like all the other saga guide images are. The way Frogger has it, it is in that dashed box that

Help Please?

Bionicleman, I joined Biosector recently, although I've been using it as a reference for much longer. I just decided to get active and help out, so I started by trying to copy the Lexicon of Terms page from the Wayback Archive (it's no longer on the want list, another user touched it up for me). That attempt taught me something: I don't now anything about how to format a page. I know how to use headers and subheaders, and how to bold text, but otherwise...

So, I'd like to ask for your help. Can you teach me how to format a page so that it doesn't look like it just came out of a plain text editor? Thank you very much. :)

Sincerely, Komau5 A user who's new to Biosector... but not to Bionicle

Well for starters if you indent like you would normally it will cause the text to stretch, so if you want to actually indent you would use a colon ":" at the beginning of the paragraph. And as for formatting, I'd check out the Tutorial to learn basic wiki code. It isn't too complicated, you just have to learn it. Thanks for joining! Check out the maintenance section on the main page for ideas on how to help out. --Bionicleman 12:55, 20 December 2012 (PST)

Thank You!

Ah, so that was why my test was messed up when I indented it... thank you!

I'll take a closer look at the tutorial.

Fortunately, another user fixed the formatting on the Lexicon of Terms page, so thanks to me and him, that page is now operational.

EDIT: I do need help with one more thing: How do I add information boxes? For example, most user pages have information boxes that hold an image and information such as "BS01 Status". Most Articles on characters have similar boxes although with different categories, such as "Affiliation" and "Status". How do I add these to an article? Thanks!

Dupe Image

Can we delete the latest image with the insane name. It's a dupe of [[File:Promo Art Codrex Vehicles Escape.png]] Lord Nektann

Delete things

If nobody has by now, go ahead and delete the BioMedia Project and the accompanying image. Lord Nektann


Thanks for your help, Bionicleman! I was able to add a userbox to my page.

Template: MPBS01

Can you fix the red link there? The D in disclaimer needs to be capitalized. Lord Nektann

AfC Timeout

So right now in the AfC I have a nom up. Now, I'd be fine if it got rejected, but really mad if it timed out. So I propose new AfC timeout rules: One month after last relevant edit. So yeah. Lord Nektann


As the AfC has reached the required 8 votes, I put up a template to begin StaffVoting. If the procedure was staff put that up, I apologize, it's been a while. So basically due to StaffVote not existing anymore, now staff put their sigs in either yes or no collum. You have 1.5 votes, Swert has two. The rest of the staff has one. Tallies will be manually updated at the bottom. So that's how we're doing StaffVote. If you want to change it, go for it. Now get the staff over here :P Lord Nektann

Yes Bman, that's what I had in mind. Thanks for voting. Lord Nektann

I was too lazy to sign in to messenger

Not sure if you got my email or not, but podcast coverart now has to be 1400x1400 to be featured in iTunes. I don't know the size that you have it at, but just wanted to make sure. =)

Also, someone left questions in the reviews, and I heard you calling for more with the WoS commentary, so you can find some there. `Song


There will be one =) I kinda have an exam this week, 3 stories to write, and an exam next week XD I got a screencap of the page while it was named Krakalin, though. I love BS01 Aprils =D ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


When are you guys going to do another podcast? I am getting anxious! --ToaJuaraevo01 (talk) 12:02, 30 August 2013 (PDT)

Can't wait for the Christmas Podcast! --ToaJuaraevo01 (talk) 09:01, 5 December 2013 (PST)

Hey there: I'm going to ask about something a bit obscure, but hoping that you can help nonetheless. It's about the MNOLG storyboards that Templar posted. I could swear that one of those posts is missing now (specifically, about the Po-Koro chap.); and it is not even archived here on Biosector01, either.

To reinforce my observation, I even have a snippet of that post which I had saved at one point:

"That first link is an unused scene of a Tohunga making infected Kohli balls, the Comets that were being sold in the Po-Koro bazaar. After helping Pohatu destroy the Nui-Jaga nest, Takua was supposed to find a clue and discover a sweat shop of mind-controlled captives he sets free.

The idea was once floated about of a 7th secret Tohungan tribe, worshipers of the cult of Makuta that insidiously undermined the efforts of the Toa to awake Mata Nui. Originally the Kohli ball merchant was supposed to be one of their agents. This was eventually scrapped by LEGO, and so the real identity of the merchant and his motives remain a mystery..."

Do you remember Templar posting the storyboard that contained the above? Maybe I am not alone in noticing this?

I also posted the same question to the Main Page Talk and the Members Opinion Hub just to be thorough in getting it out there. Thanks BiomechanicalIz (talk) 01:56, 12 February 2014 (CET)

MNOLG Custom Theme?

A while back, you, Bionicleman, created a new custom skin for BS01, MNOLG. It was released around the time of your birthday in 2012. Now its gone. Is there any way you still have the images and css and php files for it? --Wikipirate 22:48, 5 November 2014 (CET)

I forgot about that skin! I'll pass it along, maybe Swert has it stored somewhere too. We're still working on skins overall. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 22:52, 5 November 2014 (CET)
I'd love the Voya Nui skin back if possible. It was my fav. A '01 themed skin would be amazing as well. Shine 23:33, 5 November 2014 (CET)
It's all in the pipeline (including maybe a user-generated skin option...?), but the Voya Nui one is one people keep asking for. I was never into it, personally, but we'll get what we can. No promises on speed, though (story of my life). -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 23:43, 5 November 2014 (CET)

Well, it's been over a year now. I'm fine with waiting longer, if I have to, but I just want to make sure you guys haven't forgot about adding the MNOG skin back, not just because I want to browse the wiki '01 style, but because I very much want those css and image files. --Wikipirate 12:51, 25 February 2016 (CET)
