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

He's been writing for Ninjago, apparently.

Not to mention that he is STILL Chief Editor of LEGO Magazine. That's his main job.

It'd good to hear that he and his child are well, I can't wait until he has time to do some BIONICLE story for us, but I'll be patient with the rest of us until he is free to do so.Huh, Ninjago writing, huh? Maybe I'll have to read a bit of it, it has to be good if its him...

I'm happy to hear he thinks about "us" at times. It's good to get news on him.

Why are orange and black such a good color Combination ? Purple is pretty, and so is blue. Pink hurts your eyes, green is quite mellowing, black is very threatning, red is cool, orange is SO awesome, yellow's hard to read... But you can't see white at all! Oh, wait. I forgot brown.

 

Here's my thoughts: If a person tells the truth and says, " I always lie," Is he lying? Or is he telling the truth? And what has a mouth, but no head, and a body, but no torso? Do caterpillars like to tend to supporting colum of stone's every need? Or is that name misleading by nature? Speaking of nature, why are the children of animals called offspring? don't many young beasts come alive in spring, and thus, should be called onspring? Heeeeeeyy..... I got the first post on a page for the first time. Who knows; it may happen again. What the... It did happen again... and again...

 

YEAH! I'M ENCOUNTERING PROTODERMIS!

I wonder if Greg has started another chapter of TYQ/TPTB yet.

Man, I hope so. He's clearly a busy guy with Ninjago, but still... if he were to just write a little every now and then....

Let's also hope that this next chapter isn't all "another plot twist?!?! What?!?!!" kinda thing and that we get some actual character development for once. Or maybe that's just me.


Keep in mind that if Star Trek fans had, as a group, said, "No point in talking about this anymore, it's never going to come back," it never WOULD have come back.

I would be happy if we got a "next chapter" at all. The year is almost over, two serials are still running (at least they haven't been concluded, I'm not sure that running is the right word here) and we don't know if BIONICLEStory.com will still be around next year.

I'm sure they'll keep it running for another year because of what's been happening with Greg. I think Bionicle and BZPower are the main reasons he's doing this course anyway.

But maintaining BIONICLEStory.com costs money and work force - it is an investment by LEGO for a line that has been cancelled for 1,5 years now. I do hope you are right, but I am not entirely convinced.

Erebus wouldn't have heard any more, Greg hasn't logged on to the forums for almost a month now. Either he is still busy or the social media class whatever thingy went badly (for us).

Greg has been part of this online community for ten years, I'm sure he won't just leave and never come back without a notice. At least not intentionally: he doesn't have all the time in the world and a kid is a big responsibility. My guess is: he's put BIONICLE on hiatus and is planning to get back to it at some point.

Well then I guess the only thing to do now is wait. It's unfortunate that we may have to wait even longer for a story update, or at least some closure, but it's understandable, considering the pressures he has and the fact that BIONICLE is not a priority for him, or Lego.-Star

BIONICLEStory's not that big a site afaik, so it wouldn't cost that much to maintain... would it?

Really depends on how they do things. If they try to maintain it for as cheap as possible, I'm sure it wouldn't cost a whole lot.

Oh yeah. BionicleStory has a huge rahi problem... http://www.bzpower.com/board/public/style_emoticons/default/tounge2.gif I'm glad to hear Greg F hasn't forgotten about us, but he's got a lot on his plate between his writing duties and raising a child so I say let the man take as long of a break as he needs.

Bink is an employee of LEGO, so he's pretty much in the same boat as GregF. He may have to take the same training. :(

Couldn't B6 contact Bink? Bink knows that B6 is over 13, so I don't think that would violate any rules.-don't touch my pocket protector

Is that what the Social Media Driver's License is about? My impression was that it was essentially a course in marketing.

I don't know. I just thought that the reason Lego employees can't talk to us on this site anymore is because he can't contact anyone under 13 through social media. Since bink knows that Black Six is over 13, I don't see any problem with Black Six contacting bink.-don't touch my pocket protector

IMO, if a kid lies about his age of this site and Greg contacts him, it's the kid who would be at fault because he/she made a false claim about his age. If a almost-21 year old goes into a bar and is able to get a drink because he creates a false ID, it's not the bartender's fault for the incident and he can't be held responsible. So, IMO, Greg should be able to contact anyone who says they're over the age of 13. Anyone who lies about it should suffer the consequences, should any arise.

Doubt it, Greg isn't really hands-on with marketing. I think the course was what he can and can't do online while representing the company.

Give man some time folks. He's now a family man. Be little patiend. And it will be.

People should be patient, but it's also been months and months. BIONICLE was supposed to be supported through 2011.

The last update was in June or July, I think, and we're in December now. I've kind of given up on the story.
