You! I swear it feels like I've met you before, I'm not sure where? The name Green Ninja reminds of that user from the terrible Club Penguin WIKIA (wikia is awful), and the username Pufflepal26 reminds me of a user from the Bell Tree Forums, an Animal Crossing forum. Am I correct? You just seem awfully familiar... Anyways, Welcome! --Boidoh (talk) 23:57, 9 September 2014 (CEST)

Methinks you might find the Show Preview button pretty helpful. ;) Just to avoid having to make so many edits. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)

Images

So we definitely have a thing for quality here. And you seem to be uploading a lot of compressed jpegs loaded with artifacts... Please do try and save as .png or lossless .jpg please. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)

Hmm, that's that best quality I can get. I have no access to a computer (due to reasons I prefer not to discuss), so I use an iPad. I don't think uploading PNGs is possible from there, but I could make it work if you introduced an "upload from a URL" feature. Sorry... Toa Green Ninja (talk) 23:35, 11 October 2014 (CEST)

Oh. Well.. That's unfortunate. :/ But it would explain the compression issues... No big deal then. What you upload is at least a good indicator for something some else could go hunt down the original source (if I find the time and motivation I would myself heh) to be of higher quality. So they'll do for now. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)
Where are they? I must have them. -Shine 00:04, 12 October 2014 (CEST)
Bionicle Facebook page. I took cropped screenshots from the slideshow from NYCC that they added there. Toa Green Ninja (talk) 00:08, 12 October 2014 (CEST)
(Talk page stalking) I'd be more than happy to add upload via URL here if you think it'd help you. --Meiko (talk) 19:18, 18 October 2014 (CEST)
That would be great, thanks! Toa Green Ninja - Bearer of the Mask of Spinjitzu (talk) 19:29, 18 October 2014 (CEST)
Should be done. Lemme know if you have any trouble with it. --Meiko (talk) 01:17, 23 October 2014 (CEST)

Powers

Bionicle.com gives all the golden masks a "powers" suffix. The golden jungle mask is also worded horribly. -Shine 20:07, 13 October 2014 (CEST)

Ah, alright. Interesting. Toa Green Ninja (talk) 20:08, 13 October 2014 (CEST)
You're wrong. Those biographies are not even remotely formatted and it makes things impossible to read. Some freaking periods or line breaks would go a LONG way. But nope, too darn lazy I bet...
"Powers" is meant to be the next line. As in, "Tahu's powers are..." They are completely separate items of information, but whoever is writing these utterly failed at conveying any of that. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)
Yeah, I see it now. Those paragraphs really do suck. -Shine 20:44, 13 October 2014 (CEST)

Re: Woah

That's pretty cool. Nice to see someone like me on the wiki. Although, I truly started collecting in 2004, I did not become a true fan until 2006, when I got into the story. Ever since, I have been a fan of BIONICLE. I felt now that the reboot has started, I could start actually regularly contribute to another wiki besides the Marvel database. Other wikis have bigger fanbases, so I cannot really edit that much, since they have other users that get info first from so many websites. But now that BIONICLE has come back, I finally get the chance to add more info about my all-time favorite fandom.

Nice meeting you! Hope to see you again, and perhaps as more info rolls in, add more to the wiki. With adding sources, of course. :) Kakama Pohatu.pngBiological Chronicler - I wish you the speed of Pohatu, traveler!Kakama Pohatu.png 22:44, 13 October 2014 (CEST)

Protector Masks

See User Talk:Boidoh#Protector Masks for my full argument. TLDR: "Are they actually Masks of Power or are they just something they wear." Think of it as Hydraxon's helmet from 2007 - like a Kanohi in set form, but not one. So unless actually declared as such, we should not be assuming that they are. --~|RC|~ (Talk/Contribs)

Being Picky

Yes, we are super picky about every little thing, and it has served us very well. We do our absolute best to make sure no incorrect information goes on* and that we have no speculation. Especially going into a new storyline we need to be careful about how we are handling the little information we have so that when curious people come along we aren't giving them incorrect information. That makes us look bad. Not yet having it is a lot better than having it wrong. We're all excited for what is to come, but we try to restrain that when it comes to bringing new things onto this Wiki. We want it to be better than it was when we found it and were drawn in by the high standards that we found in the staff and in the editor-base.

As far as the new story goes, we have to keep in mind that what we have is teaser information. Some of it is solid, some of it needs to be sat on for a while before we know for sure what the heck is going on and can compile an accurate entry for this wiki. It's great to see that you're ready to be bringing all this stuff on and ready to take responsibility for getting all the information drawn together, but I think you may want to take a step back and gauge the atmosphere for a while. For a while there we were just making pages willy nilly, but now the Articles for Creation process has been revived to make sure we aren't going too quickly. If the staff agree that the page is a no-brainer, either they'll make it themselves and say "Go for it!" or they'll just delete it from the AfC and let us do the making ourselves. If it isn't, then you'll get feedback from the other editors on whether or not it is time to create your page, or how you could make the page better in preparation for when it should be created! You can make a mock-up of your page in the Sandbox or you could make your own personal sandbox so that all the things you want to make are separate from others' projects.

In short: yeah, we're picky, and we have a picky process, but following that process and being discriminating about what we should and shouldn't be adding and when we should and shouldn't be adding it is a very important part of making sure that the wiki is functioning the way it should. Not that errors don't creep in. See Angel's latest edit to Sahmad for an example of something very wrong getting past us.

2015 Animation Images

Where are you getting those from? I can't find a source. --Master of the Rahkshi Ask, and ye shall receive. Eventually. 05:15, 18 October 2014 (CEST)

Just cropped out images of the NYCC presentation on BIONICLE's Facebook page. Toa Green Ninja - Bearer of the Mask of Spinjitzu (talk) 05:36, 18 October 2014 (CEST)
I should probably check that more often. XD Thanks. --Master of the Rahkshi Ask, and ye shall receive. Eventually. 05:42, 18 October 2014 (CEST)

It's not that everybody hates your edits...

Hey. First of all, I'd like to say that I can testify that you are indeed an experienced wiki editor. I've been on a wiki you've edited on before, and I can say that your edits there (though the wiki and the wikia you edited on were at war at the time :P) were good. I'd like to say here, from my point of view, that it is not that everybody hates your edits. I think that most of them are pretty good. It is just that, from what I've learnt, the trivia section is supposed to be for stuff that isn't obvious. There are many gold coloured Kanohi that don't have any relation to the 'Golden Kanohi', like the Vahi, Ignika, and the Olmak. So basically, no one hates your edits, it is just that the moderating team here is more... strict than those of other wikis. If not then we would end up looking like the BIONICLE wikia. :P --Boidoh (talk) 22:30, 19 October 2014 (CEST)

Creating new pages

Hey there. I'm not a staff member, but I think you'd appreciate a piece of advice. We've re-established the AfC system for proposing the creation of new pages. Not all pages go through this process, but pages that not everyone might agree on, like the Prophesy of Heroes page you created, must go through that. It'll probably be deleted when a moderator comes online. --Vartemp Talk 19:17, 28 November 2014 (CET)

Large Images

Unfortunately, due to how the software of BS01 works, uploading a large file (such as the unmodified Set images from Lego.com) has the potential of breaking the wiki on several pages. You'll have to resize the image from the original file down to a more suitable size when uploading (1000 pixels tall, for example). --External Image Owner (talk|contribs) 04:26, 4 July 2015 (CEST)

Also of note, we already have that image right here. --External Image Owner (talk|contribs)

Island of (the) Lost Masks Appearances

While we appreciate you adding the appearances for the new book, the page is probably going to be renamed, and someone is going to have to change the links too. So next time, hold off on adding the appearances until the page is renamed. :) --Vartemp Talk 19:30, 1 September 2015 (CEST)

edit: Nevermind. Didn't look at the cover. >_< --Vartemp Talk 19:32, 1 September 2015 (CEST)

Red links

I know some other wikis may not care so much about red links, but on BS01, we try not to have red links on mainspace pages, so wait until images for the 2016 sets are uploaded before you add the set images back. --Vartemp Talk 23:46, 6 December 2015 (CET)

Were those not uploaded in the earlier batch? I'll try and get to those today... -- Dorek Talk External Image 00:46, 7 December 2015 (CET)
And done. On a related subject, what sets do people want to see reviewed first? :U -- Dorek Talk External Image 01:38, 7 December 2015 (CET)
