I thought the site had been locked. Why move it to a new server?

Nope, we've been open the whole time. But yes, our old server was becoming too costly to handle, so we got a new one that is much cheaper but still has enough space to keep both sites running.Also, we're finding that it's easier to find needed caches (see my previous post) by searching "biosector" instead. Many thanks to Ziko for helping us work this out. =)Quick Update: We now have all Characters and Cosmos pages available. Creatures pages will be uploaded tomorrow (note this does not include Rahi).

Hey everybody! I'm working on getting a Bionicle podcast set up, it's almost ready to go, and I have one or two regular positions open for anyone with Bionicle knowledge who would like to join! Or if you would perfer not to be a regular, you can guest star as well. We will also be reading and critiquing short stories and possibly epics on the podcast, so if you'd like yours read let me know and I'll look it over and we may review it! For details and any questions you may have, just send me a PM.


To all image makers! I am in need of a logo for a podcast that I am going to get up and running pretty soon, and one of the final things I need is a logo for the podcast! If anyone would be interested in making me a good quality image, just message me, I would greatly appreciate it!

Great! Thank you guys for getting that done, Swert and the rest of you, and thanks for the update! That's alright Swert, I think we can all endure a little inconvenience to make things cheaper for you guys, after all you've done for us, putting time and effort into the site, and money, you've done a lot, and I greatly appreciate it, and I'm sure everyone else does too. Thank you also for working so hard on getting the site back to normal, you guys are awesome. I do have a question though, are the two images you put on the main page, the one of the Christmas tree with the Avohkii on top, and the one with that same tree chopped down and on it's side, going to be saved onto the site so that we can view them even after they have been taken down?

More recently, we've been uploading the holiday images to the site. In the past they'd usually been kept in Swert's (or whoever was administrator at the time) Brickshelf or Maj[host].I'd expect to see them on the site though.-SK

Most/all of them are still available on bioniclestory.com, but we're working on getting those. They're kinda low priority, because we essentially copy them straight from bioniclestory.com, but hopefully we can recover some of the podcast serial transcripts.

Thanks, I just wanted to read the transcripts as well as the canonized fan short stories. Also, I suppose the winners of S&T Contest 6 will have their stories put up once all the work on BS01 is done?Anyhow, thanks for answering anyways. :)

Basically what we've described here. We moved servers, and we're still in the midst of putting everything back in order, so there's some pages missing (I think I can say that we have the majority of pages back, though).

Oh my god I had heard you would be doing this but it's even better than I imagined. The ALTERNATE FORMS. The QUOTES. You seem to have finally restored the pages for the Toa Mata, Takanuva, Mata Nui, and Makuta to the way they should be. Here's hoping the rest of the wiki follows suit! ;)

I like your Metro UI implementation on the homepage, it's great to be able to see all that information at a glance quickly without having to navigate to each page. Nice work. I'd use CSS to make the tiles light up on mouseover to give the impression that there's something dynamic there and you won't be taken to another wiki page, but other than that it's very well done.

Just wanna pop in and say I am grateful for those who have worked on the wiki over the years. It's been my number 1 source for BIONICLE info; even go so far as to reading the online serials there rather than on the official BIONICLE site. Now that I'm programming my game I have also been cross-referencing details with the wiki, and that has helped me greatly during the design process.So again: Thanks. :)

LOL. I didn't expect Takanuva's page to be defiled, so that made me almost laugh. (I would have, but I'm too tired to laugh). Gali and Tahu's pages had the funny "pics".

DEFILING. But since it was just April Fools, I'm not mad. Normally I would rage about it, eat a large pie, and then exterminate those responsible.

Not any more, I had it cleaned up quickly :P

WOOHOO! As funny as it was, it was in a way sickening to the core as well.
