This may or may not have been posted before, if it has, I haven't found it until today, but as noted by user bionicle_fanatic on the /r/bioniclelego subreddit, the countdown on the telescope in MNOG will reach its conclusion on October 18th at approximately 4:04 PM EST. According to him, the Red Star is to reach its destination on that date? I'm honestly not sure where he got that info from. Personally, I feel like the clock's just going to stop, or loop around, and nothing is going to happen. However as a community, I feel like we should all try and do something special on that day regardless. Be it a large scale community event, or smaller personal celebrations of BIONICLE history. Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/bioniclelego/comments/53od3m/in_roughly_23_days_the_red_star_will_reach_its/ EDIT: If my numbers are correct, this is actually going to happen 18 days sooner than originally calculated. I'm not sure where my Skype friend got the 18th, but I'm getting something entirely different now. EDIT 2: As noted by the original Reddit poster, it seems the counter resets after every logon, unfortunately leaving us with no actual solid date for that timer's end. However, as posted here, it would seem that in the code of the game, there is a hard coded date after all: January 12th, 2290. Nearly 300 years from now. It's pretty freaking far off, but at the same time, it IS feasible to pass the date on for the next three or four generations. So who knows? Maybe one day we will get to celebrate that day. Until then, I suppose we'll just treat January 12th as some kind of inverted anniversary.
[sharedmedia=finalCountdown:countdown:3]As you can see above, we've added another new feature to BZPower - event countdowns. You may see the formatting change a little bit over the next couple of days, but the feature at its core is going to remain as is.Countdowns can be created by admins and added to the sidebar and other locations as deemed appropriate. We don't want to overload people, so there will only be a handful of countdowns at any one time. You can expect to see them for currently-running contests, upcoming fan conventions, and BZPower's Anniversary. We may add additional ones if we think of something or someone suggests a good idea.Anyone can add an existing countdown to their post by clicking the "My Media" button in the Rich Text Editor and selecting Countdowns from the side and then selecting the appropriate countdown.I hope you all enjoy this new feature on BZPower!
