Hey Tomana. I've been off the grid for a while, so could you fill me in on what's going on? Thankee. And Merry-day-after-Christmas. ~Megan51Sprite Service


Not black, any background color other than black. Haha, yeah, Cholie told me what happened, and I'd love to come back. I remember Aanchir from my days. Oh, and thank you. :3. Tahu Nuva Unleashed


I am so so sorry for changing it back. I thought that it had failed to save, so I did it again. And again. I wont do it any more, and again I am VERY SORRY!!!!!! toaoftechnology 16:29, 13 February 2012 (PST)


Oh, geez, thank you so much! I've been really upset over this messed up template for months and have had no idea what to do, but you helped me! Thank you! :D

Have you accepted Derpy as your personal overlord?

P.S. Making a new section here is too difficult. XP --Derpy H96ves' Witnesses 16:30, 1 April 2012 (PDT)

Good to see you were able to be here today. Now remember you're an Avenger too. Aid us. --~Twilight Avenger~ 16:35, 1 April 2012 (PDT)

It's not too difficult.... I'll make a button >_>

Anyway, I get on and see a huge Pony, I got to record SOMETHING.
And no. I ride horses, not obey them. I'm from Texas, not Fillydelphia =D

What am I do to in this instance as an Avenger? We have a giant Pony with staff powers on our hands...ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Official Derpy colors, bro. Also, thanks for the new section button. Comes real handy.--Derpy H96ves' Witnesses 13:26, 2 April 2012 (PDT)

No prob =P Thanks for the colors. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


I guess I can't stop coming back here now.

Anyway, I did a little digging and found more archives for pages from the VS01 incident. Also, all the links to the images in BS01's "swert" file are broken, so you might wanna put an explanation about that.


User talk:Swert/Gears

I've also decided to start a page detailing BS01's smaller events, since all my subpages were destroyed in the transition. I was wondering if you knew where I could find an archive of Matkerzah's talkpage from the 2009 spamfest. I'm assuming the staff got rid of it fairly quickly, since it is not on the wayback machine. --Vartemp 12:23, 26 July 2012 (PDT)

There's plenty not on the WayBack Machine. The staff actually didn't get rid of it right away. I wish there was a copy somewhere. Another user had it copied, but I don't remember who.
Thanks for the WayBacks ^_^ ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

EL Tablet.

For some reason, your ONE variable isn't showing up, it just starts out with TWO. And, I think I might be wrong, but I think that three is aligned to the right, in small Monotype or Italics. I'd try and fix this myself, but I'm exhausted right now. -Avlok (Talk)

PS: This place is a coding mess. Not meant in a bad way, mind you, just stating the mass amount of coding on the page. I almost got lost putting a new section up. :P

Yeah, that's why I put the create a new section + up there in the middle of the top of the page :P Also, I didn't keep the traditional welcome, that's why there is a mass of coding up there... you should try and edit my history page en masse rather than a section at a time ;)
The 1 variable is for the float, left or right, not any text. That's why it doesn't show up. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


Thank You
This award has been presented to Zo;Tomana for helping {{{FROGGER0}}}. Thanks so much!

Hey ZT! It sure has been awhile. :/ Apparently my sig is gone. :P I really liked the paragraph you put on your userpage. We just had a 9/11 service at my college in PA this morning. --{{SUBST:User:Toa Cykron/Sandbox}} 06:52, 11 September 2012 (PDT)

Down here at Texas A&M we are going to have a special service of Silver Taps for 9/11. Well, the Corps of Cadets is having one. It isn't an official Silver Taps. Those happen only on first Tuesdays for student who pass away. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


Much better, thanks. ^_^ (The preceding unsigned comment was made by Tenkai XXO)

No prob ^_^ ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Hey Tomana, 'tis me


I need help with my sig. Apparently they now have limited characters, so how would I get the SIG 1 from this page as my sig? Your old friend,

External Image/Talk/External Image

(That's not with the signature, that's copy and paste :P)

Hmmm, I don't see any way I can cut down on the code, but I do have a method that works. In your sig page, at the top, put the code for your sig in between includeonly tags like this

<includeonly><span class="plainlinks">[ <img></img>]</span><sup>/[[User talk:Toa Crowzon|<font color=green>Talk</font>]]/<img></img></sup>


In fact, just copy paste that. In the area where you put your sig code under your Preferences, type {{SUBST:User:Toa Crowzon/Sigs}} and you should be able to use your sig as normal. It messes up the timestamp, but that is a small price to pay for a working sig. This method also allows you to not have to go to your preferences every time you change your sig, you can just change the code between the includeonly's ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

I don't think it worked :S
Let's see... So apparently signatures have been limited? Lets see if this works --


External Image/Talk/External Image

Ummmm... what? ~Crowzon

There is an extra line of space that you don't need on your sig page, but that should work. What is does is it actually substitutes the code from the template onto the page you sign your sig on. Did you sign it and it work? No it shouldn't be visible on your sig page. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Screw it. I just deleted the rest of the page, and now it SHOULD work. Thanks for trying anywho :P

External Image/Talk/External Image

External Image/Talk/External Image

I just worked for me, make sure you have the little box to treat the sig as wiki-code checked. Otherwise I dunno what could be the problem. Good luck =) ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


I don't remember him being in charge on the EL after KH, and she hired me, so I would know if he was. --Vartemp 15:13, 26 December 2012 (PST)

I'm going off of what the EL page says on that one. I don't remember him having been truly in charge either. I think there may have a been a very short moment, but I would have to check with someone else to be sure. By my memory it was Masketh, KH, and then Grant. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


Sad to see my file go. The Internet Gods can be rough. Hey, at least I've got some good screenshots. Lord Nektann

At least you do have that. And they came in handy very quickly to get a quote for a section of my own file lol. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image
Yeah I saw the Roodaka quote. At least the AfD, AfC, and TP screenshots are generally what I covered that you didn't have. So we can laugh at the memories. Lord Nektann

Indeed. If you ever wanted to write up a summation of what you have left, I could put it in a separate section. While I do prefer my record, the Regime Files did happen to be quite an accomplishment. You really didn't have a backup? =( ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

No :(. It's just something you never think about right. I'll maybe write something up. The Regime Files are one with the wiki database my friend. May they rest well. I hope your histories are backed up 20 times. Lord Nektann

Oh, I think they are due for a backing up at this point. 165 KB is a LOT to lose, though I should backup the TP too. I just wish I could get some more quote for the O:RAC and EL. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image

Re: Yo

Okay, you win by Gravitan's Farewell Address. Teridax + The Crossing equals your Histories. Lord Nektann

Welcome Back

Hey Tomana. Once you get on gmail, I'll email you my Civil War synopsis, and (Maybe you could go to the AfC) Nice to see you around. Lord Nektann

Go ahead and email it to me, I am headed back to college tonight and won't be able to chat till late tonight. ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


[1] Why's that? =) `Kraahlix

You started and ran BS01's most memorable organizations. If you'd started the podcast then, you would have had a trifecta of AWESOME XD
Anything you'd like me to add to the EL Extract? O:RAC article I'm working on next?ζω·τωμαναExternal Image


I just wanted to say that is a great way of thinking of it. Despite our greatly divided country these days, we should all should never forget the tragedies that happened on this day twelve years ago. Good job Tomana. --Vartemp 13:47, 11 September 2013 (PDT)

Yeah, that's the best way to fix the templates. Alternatively, you could do margin:0 auto 0 auto;, which is just a shorter way of writing the same thing; either is fine. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 17:42, 20 October 2013 (PDT)

Passing by and I'm seeing the snazzy work you guys are doing here. Need a hand at all on something? Lord Nektann

Thanks Tomana. Still can't figure out Battle/Conflict, but that's a weird template. Lord Nektann


Check your PM on BZP when you get the chance. I want to know a few things for my BS01 history page. --Vartemp 21:48, 16 September 2014 (CEST)


Hey home boy. `Cykron

Wassup? ζoxHistories External Image
Life lol. I feel so emotional right now. You guys are STILL HERE. ;) `Cykron
Not all can be said for all our old friends. I haven't heard from Grant-Sud for months, I know TN05 is gone, and I don't know about SoT. They might come back soon though. --Vartemp 00:56, 21 September 2014 (CEST)
Aw, Grant, Spawnie, and TN were really awesome guys. :( Yeah, I have a feeling more will show soon. And some newbies, definitely. `Cykron

I've never left O_O Var has been in and out, though. Spawnie lurks over on BZP for the most part. Grant I haven't heard from... in well over a year, maybe longer.

Life has been happening over here as well. In my last year of college, looking forward to a med school interview... And I'm still here XD ζoxHistories External Image
Sounds great man! I'm a Geology major now. :) Should be studying chem and calc but I'm talking to you scrubs. :P It's great to talk to you guys again. `Cykron

Awesome! Biology over here, minor in Creative Writing. I should be writing a 1,500 word essay right now, but I have no motivation. ζoxHistories External Image

Ugh, organic scientists... *gags* Minerals are where it's at. ;) btw write your paper, boy, or I'll call you "Zoe". lol `Cykron

No >=(

It's a very weird kind of essay. Creative Non-fiction.

And I'm less organic scientist than pre-med student =P I'll pass on actually going into any sort of Biology research. I just want my med school pre-reqs.

We're all so old o-o ζoxHistories External Image

I know man. I just turned 20 a week ago. :( I can grow a freaking BEARD now. Couldn't do that before the... *gulp* "end" of Bionicle. Heh heh. `Cykron

XD Welcome to the second decade! And happy belated birthday =) ζoxHistories External Image
Thanks. :) I'm sooooo much more mature now lol. `Cykron

Life does that to you. (he says as he continues editing a page about the history of a website about a toyline's storyline) ζoxHistories External Image

You're doing God's work, son. `Cykron

You should go check it out. It's only over 200 kB of code and information with 150ish edit-able sections =P What got you lurking around these parts again? Word of the BIONICLE revival? ζoxHistories External Image

Yeah, revival. Made my year haha. Dude... that page. THAT PAGE. Geeze that page. It's so... comprehensive. Yeah, that's the word. `Cykron
I've done my best =P And I'm looking to add a little more. If I had my way I'd double the page size by storing the old ELog archives on it, but Swert doesn't want me to =(
The revival, or comeback, or reboot, or whatever this is going to be has me way more happy than a 21 year old should be about an 8 year old's toy line... Oh well =D ζoxHistories External Image

It's 6-16 years of age, I'll have you know. XD You're going to stall out the wiki if Swert didn't maintain your Nuva protodermis seal. Wow. I just wrote that. `Cykron

Great, so I'm the Bahrag trying to return the server to the way it was in the time before time, huh? Thanks >=( I'll have you know my minions are harmless and don't go around tearing down buildings =P ζoxHistories External Image
ARCHIVE IT ALL. IT MUST BE ARCHIVED. These April Fools pranks on your page sure take me back. :D `Cykron
Were you around at all for the Spamfest on Matkerzah's page? If you were, you could be really taken back (or taken a-back) by visiting Vartemp's history page and looking for the archive of Mat's talkpage. ζoxHistories External Image

Well that was an adventure. I peer into the heart of madness and walk away a changed man. :P Strong Bad dancing half way down sums it up nicely. `Cykron

I think we can all say that we're glad to have changed since then XD ζoxHistories External Image

Yeah you guys would never dream of pulling something like that now... unless it's April 1st... or a holiday... or a day. `Cykron

Yes, yes, only with good reason =D ζoxHistories External Image

Of course. :P `Cykron

I feel like you all owe me money somehow. -- I AM THE DOREK do not truffle with me 10:34, 21 September 2014 (CEST)

"Not that errors don't creep in. See Angel's latest edit to Sahmad for an example of something very wrong getting past us."

Dorek and I are actually having a discussion about the future of citations on this wiki, and have been for a while. If you have strong feelings one way or the other, you should go read what each side has to say and chime in on that discussion page, instead of making small-text comments somewhere else. The more, the merrier, or, rather, the more democratic; I want to try and gauge the majority opinion. --Angel Bob (talk) 23:02, 19 October 2014 (CEST)

I wasn't really commenting about citations there, your edit just happened to be a good example of how, even with how picky we can be about what we add to the wiki, incorrect data can be added. I don't really have a strong opinion on citations, but if they happen I just want to make sure they are used appropriately and in line with at least semi-professional standards. ζoxHistories External Image

Main Page

The MP design is looking good so far! I like the idea of coloring each section with parameters. A couple ideas, feel free to shoot them down:

1) I think it'd look good if you moved the navigation section to the top of the page like we have it currently, then shrink down the social section to line up with the welcome section.

2) This one is more out there, but it might be cool to add in a "hero unit" (or whatever they call it) to the top of the page. Here's one I made one for TNW that we never ended up using, although we'd probably wouldn't want it to be so big. Basically, it's an element with a cool background image at the top of the page that catches people's attention. It could give people a quick idea of what BS01 is about (so not a replacement for the welcome section), or maybe it could just have the words "BS01 Wiki" in the center like, or it could even just be blank. We could fit in an "explore" button or something similar like the TNW example and then put a navigation system behind that... there are a lot of possibilities. I think it'd be a cool way to catch peoples' attention and to showcase all our cool images since relegating them to thumbnails on the main page doesn't really do them justice. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 08:35, 24 November 2014 (CET)

I like the idea of a banner-type thing at the top, though we'd need to make one and I'm no image-smith. . . Though I just had an idea that I think I'll implement at least as an eye-catcher.
As far as the nav goes, I kinda like it where it is, plus Dorek and I are relying on that space being taken up so as to lengthen the Social box. He's hoping to insert a Twitter feed and maybe a couple other things (icons for our Facebook and the actual Twitter account would probably be in order), so for now the extra length is nice to have. That may change as we move forward, the design is by no means final and I can't really say until I have the actual elements to insert. If those elements could be brought in sooner rather than later... I would be able to see how they actually fit together. ζoxHistories External Image
Yeah, I'm a fan of having the nav where it is. I like the idea of something eye-catching, I just don't want it to come at the expense of space on the main page. Wiku Nui could do, but maybe without the reflection.
And yes, Twitter integration is next. I have no idea how it'll work, but it can't be THAT hard, right? Right?! -- Dorek Talk External Image 17:54, 24 November 2014 (CET)
Thanks for the throwback on that TNW main page MtMNC. :P --Meiko (talk) 19:06, 24 November 2014 (CET)


Hi Tomana. It's been two minutes. How have you been? :P KH Talk | Contributions (If any) 07:28, 28 December 2014 (CET)

Main Page

I noticed you were revising it again, and I have to agree, it doesn't look visually appealing. I was gonna suggest you keep the nav at the top; it just doesn't look right to have something above it to me. --Vartemp Talk 02:55, 3 March 2015 (CET)

Yeah, the more I open the front page the more annoyed I got by the new design XD
I was definitely thinking about keeping it near the top. Having it up on top would certainly work, but I had an idea about the Nav that I'm still waiting for feedback on. ζoxHistories External Image


As I recall, the last time I let you keep it, you complained that you would abuse it and then banned me for a day. I'm pretty sure you don't now get to complain you don't get it enough =P. -- Dorek Talk External Image 05:29, 3 August 2015 (CEST)

Who said it was a complaint? =P
It's called an observation ^_^

EDIT: Another observation: bringing back the mainsite would be neat and all, but I don't think it would be functionally very different from just the wiki MP. ζoxHistories External Image

Would be easier to code for and allow for some extensions that we can't otherwise get (facebook comments, yo). -- Dorek Talk External Image 05:58, 3 August 2015 (CEST)


So MODERN, gosh.

And I still don't like the old element colors (too washed out), they should "pop" more (without being tacky).

(Also what happens if you split the first big column in two, horizontally? For the sake of customization :3) -- Dorek Talk External Image 00:35, 10 August 2015 (CEST)

That first big column is the notices, so I don't quite get what you mean by "customization" there. If I split it horizontally we'd just have another box in there with less room for the notices without stretching the page (I think...) Those templates are literally the current MP with all the content removed.
As far as the element colors go, I just need the darker versions of them so that they don't fade out like they do. ζoxHistories External Image

Did someone say, "old templates"?

If you need someone to help you dig up old templates, I'd be more than willing to help. --Vartemp Talk 15:42, 26 November 2015 (CET)

What I've been doing is recreating the old templates related to things I'd like to make a file about. Alternatively, if you run across or are aware of any really neat templates with a special function or history, I have been known to make entries about such things (see the MC Template). Eventually, I'd like to break my history page up into multiple pages, and if I could end up with a //Templates page. ζoxHistories External Image
Sounds neat. I've already run across a few interesting-looking templates while browsing archived pages. I'll see if I can make a list of them so we can recreate them. --Vartemp Talk 16:13, 27 November 2015 (CET)

Okay, sure. You travel down to Dallas-Fort Worth, and you pony-up for the pizza (I know a great place over in Irving), and I'll smack you about for not finishing that epic =D
And yep. I stole your staff position and (having already stolen ER's position as Chronicler) get to actually be the official BS01 Chronicler now. My History Page will one day take over the wiki. I won't stop until my page breaks due to siz-- oh, wait, it's already trying to do that. I should work on breaking it up into smaller pages that I can build back up to the breaking point >=D
Oh, and "year"? More like two years! >:( ζoxHistories External Image
Haha! If I make my way down to Texas I will be sure to do that! =3 Dude that's awesome! Please tell all the staff members I'm alive and well. Also, that's the perfect job for you.

Sorry! I went ahead and made it before I saw your comment. I made it plural for the sake of consistency. Template:SetsNav is plural. Most other Nav tempates, though, end in Matoran words, so it's hard to tell if they're singular of plural. Whetever you decide is cool with me. I'll put an ambox on the page telling users not to use it until we reach a decision. :) -- Toa Jala The AFC needs your help! 07:18, 20 March 2016 (CET)

Set Categories

I made all the set categories I proposed in AFC. I also made the Large Sets category, which I didn't realize I forgot to nominate until after I made it. I realize now that with G2 there are medium sets. Can I just go ahead and make a Medium Sets category? I figured in this case, I could probably skip AFC since the others passed, but I wanted to ask just in case. -- Toa Jala The AFC needs your help! 09:16, 21 March 2016 (CET)
