That's good news to hear. I hope he updates TYQ and TPTB.

Agreed. Pretty sure they'll be next. I think the next TPTB was meant to be next, but Greg probably wanted to wait until the forums came back on to upload it, because of the Name That GB contest.

Great to hear from him after the downtime. Looks like we're all just trying to catch up where we left off, and we're doing a good job of it so far. Let's see how this social media training stuff goes for him. -SK

Happy to hear that he's okay, and that he's still interested in writing. Take your time Greg! Family is important! Here's to hoping that you have a healthy life, that your daughter grows well, and that you get that license!

This seems promising. The fact that Greg still acknowledges us, and understands how we haven't been with much story for a while is good to know. I thought that the story would slow down a lot after Bionicle ended but I would not have guess it would come to a slow grind like it is currently. However, I understand Greg is a very busy man and I am immensely thankful he still works on the story. Any story is better then just letting Bionicle fall to the way side. Thank you, Greg Farshtey, for not allowing Bionicle to die just yet. ;)

Thank you so much, Erebus. I really hope Greg can type on his laptop while sitting next to the baby, but I guess that doesn't sound like what a great writer would do...

It's more than just typing on his laptop. He has to be focused on what he does; He isn't just banging rocks together :P Edited by Riglax

I'd like to thank you, Erebus, for managing to get this to us. :)That said, I'm a little curious as to why Greg never did the social media training during the six months we've been out of contact... He probably does have his reasons, I'm sure, but it would expedite things now. Oh well, I'm still glad to hear he's doing well. ~|ET|~

Even though GregF hasn't made any recent updates to the serials, it's still really incredible that he's even keeping the story going. Keep in mind that he's basically do this on his own without any support from Lego. I'm willing to forgive him for being a little late on the serials for that reason alone. -don't touch my pocket protector

Good to hear that LEGO is making accommodations for employee-customer interactions. As for the stories, I don't think there's a better excuse than "I'm taking care of my child."

Children are no small task ;) Besides, it's good to spend a lot of time with a child in their early years to build a close bond.

Sad to see that there will be no more new characters, :( but it's good to know he's back! :)

GregF has some unused names left on his list, so we might see new characters in the future. :)

Thanks E, I was getting worried. But, Greg is a Dad now, so he has to do what he has to do. I know we've all been waiting for the next chapters of The Yesterday Quest and The Power that Be for a while now; we just gotta be patient. He'll get to it when he'll get to it.

I sure hope they replace him with some new blood to be honest.

Well, the "sad" truth is, they won't. He is actually continuing the story by himself, for FREE. You should appreciate what he is doing, as LEGO really can't care less about BIONICLE right now.

Maybe half his point is that he doesn't want the story 'continuing' like this? Maybe he wants either someone new to do it, or for it to end. And don't tell other people what they should and shouldn't appreciate. Some people just see this continuation of the story as a massive dragging out where there's no need. If someone's continuing a story, and someone else doesn't like what they're doing with it, there's not really any reason for them to appreciate any of it. - Tilius

If that's so, maybe he could just give the fanbase a plot synopsis of the ending. Then, we could have a few story contests or something. Or maybe he wouldn't want that because he'd be worried something would be screwed up.

Sorry, I was being a little bit harsh there. It's just that people have been blaming Greg for the end of BIONICLE and I don't think that's fair. I know what Am I Poplar Yet? said wasn't exactly blaming Greg, but he's done so much for the storyline it's hard not to get a little upset about it. The main thing was that there isn't going to be any "new blood" as LEGO has (for the time being) ended the franchise and Greg is doing the story for free, so if they want to get in new people, they would have to hire them. Mr Farshtey, like all of us, is a fan of BIONICLE, to the extent that he would keep the story going in the hopes that he can expand the universe, and I appreciate that. I'm just a bit disappointed at the lack of support for him. That's just how I see it. Again, I apologise for the seemingly one-dimensional comment I made above.

Greg I'm really glad your still writing, I really do wish BIONICLE will return so we can hear more of its epicness!

Does anyone know when we can expect a new chapter of either story? I know Greg is a busy guy with his daughter and all, but can he at least give us an estimate of how long it would take?

He can't really communicate with anyone right now, so first he has to get some things wrapped up on his end before we get some sort of update.

Greg is a busy man, with his new child and all... and hopefully within the next month we should get an update.BTW, whatever happened to the "Name that GB" contest? I know that Greg stated that there was a winner, and I'm guessing that the winner will be announced with an update, no?

Yeah, first GregF has to reveal who the GB is in the serial, and then he'll reveal the winner. The disguised Great Being is being discussed in this topic. :)

Excellent! Take your time Greg, actually raise your child instead of letting the TV do it, like my parents did :PAll jokes aside, what is it he does for a living now, anyways? I know he's a writer, but what does he write? Does he have his own little book series or what...MTL
