Wait, Greg can't use BZP anymore? What new Lego policies are you talking about?Man, if this is the end of the story serials, that really stinks. Now the Bionicle storyline will be just left hanging there

What do you think about Bionicle Story .com?What do you use it for?

I like to use the Internet archive to access the old stuff.

It´s not so much a LEGO policy than a US law (COPPA) which LEGO has decided to implement into their company´s policy. However, LEGO is working on a new policy which should allow LEGO employees to join fan sites while still complying with the law.~Gata. ;)

Yes, he was. He once graciously allowed us to send him questions through the PM system. If you look under the One-stop S&T Rules topic in the Bionicle Storyline and Theories forum, you will find a link to the extensive record of his time here. However, he is no longer allowed to answer PMs anymore due to the law Gata mentioned, and other commitments have kept him offline.

Today, I was returning to Bioniclestory.com. I have an idea on why it is still up: it's up because people who had an interest in Bionicle and randomly come back to it and decide to catch up on the serials will have a place to go. It's a pleasant surprise - "this is still here!" which will likely improve Lego's PR. So they are leaving it up for an official serials reference. That might also avoid speculation or confusion on what the serials were when Bionicle comes back - people who want to look it up can.And it is not just a bunch of backdoor fans that say "This was official story". It's an official verification, and it is the only one they have.

When it launched, it was a really fun flash website. I really liked the atmosphere, the sections of it, the games... The new one is pretty awesome as well, as it had a lot of good information and old videos. Buuuuut... It never got updated...-NotS

I didn't realize that this website existed until the Glatorian year (2009), but I had decent information, I liked the videos of the sets. But plenty more information can be viewed on the Bionicle Wikia.

I think most people here (sorry if I;m generalizing) use BS01, as it was made by BZP members and mantained by them.

My favorite incarnation of the site was in '07 when it was in the Toa Terrain Crawler. They should have tried to follow that format in later years, instead of slapping an ad on the front page to catch your attention.

I agree. That style was epic. The only problem was that it took forever to load; that might have annoyed some people. Not sure how they would have done something that cool with 2008 story however. Still, I think they should have tried, at least. And I liked the new content they put up in that update; I think the format was sacrificed for content.

It never took me quite too long to load, and that concept art that they showed while it loaded was pretty cool.Maybe the 2008 format could have taken place in the Codrex, even though it wasn't introduced until summer of that year.

Nah, that would have been too much of a reveal at first. They could have done it in that massive Karda Nui cavern, though, with spotlights on the Toa and Light Matoran shelter and the Makuta's base. That would have worked in perfect with the game that year.The Codrex would have been epic for Fall 2008, however. But that would have set too much of a precedent...by 2009 I think they would be out of luck...*dares members to come up with a 2007-equivalent idea for 2009 Bioniclestory.com* :evilgrin:

I visit there whenever I feel like reading the serials, to show my support for Bionicle more directly. I only read serials elsewhere if I can't access BIONICLEStory, or if I want to read a podcast.

I never use it to study the story. If I need to find little bits of trivia or information, I use the Bionicle Wiki or Biosector. I only go to Bioniclestory for the serials and they've all but disappeared now.

I believe I´ve seen concepts of a 2008 BIONICLEstory.com with the 2007 navigation style featuring stalagmites and a cloud background. It looked very nice, although not as epic as the final one. If I remember right, it was from a building instruction, I might look for it.I barely use BIONICLEstory.com. That is to say, I don´t use it since the story serials have stopped being updated.-Gata Posted Image

What I heard was that the training was over and it was just a hammering in of the do-not-talk-to-kids under-13 rule. I could be wrong though. The real reason Greg's not here is lack of time due to family and other commitments like his job, to answer the original poster's question.
