Biovival Discussion (aka Christian Faber's mysterious project)

Hmmm… I haven’t been following it too closely.

A few quick takes:

  • Most of the art looks gorgeous and I’d love to have it framed
  • I really dig the concept for the 310N logo
  • I don’t like how people have been getting their hopes up about this. We’re not going to get BIONICLE again in the form of another consumer toy-line (at least not the nostalgia-fueled version the fandom seems to want).
  • I really hope this project has gotten people back into creating their own BIONICLE stories.

We shouldn’t wait around for stories to be spoon-fed to us. The people of this community should use their own talents and creativity to weave their own tales, to make their own additions to the BIONICLE narrative. There’s an enormous amount of potential in that, but I feel like we can all too often get stuck in capitalist consumerist mindsets. We often neglect our own creative potential.


This this this this this

As much as I would absolutely love to see more official material, I think the best way to go is making our own stories. Bionicle was what got me interested in writing in the first place, and for me personally it would be a disservice to waste that waiting around for Lego.

And I get it, a lot of fan projects have a pretty bad track record for producing results, and there’s a whole other discussion to be had about that, but it’s easy to forget that there have been successful ones as well; Reviving Bionicle, Struggle In The Drifts, and the upcoming Legend Of Mata Nui revamp release.

So yeah, I urge anyone who (like me) is hoping to see G3 or something along those lines happen someday, to start by making your own!


Very good point (I hope to make a video about that).

I feel as though that’s the case for many members of the community.


We’ve sure tried!

and failed :stuck_out_tongue:


yep. I remember.

4 posts were split to a new topic: School talk

I’ve been inactive for the longest time, and then I get an inbox notif that when clicked on goes to this post, and the I see “4 posts were split into a new topic” that I have no access to. :stuck_out_tongue:


Why am I getting notifications for this?


You commented once I believe.

I have the same question.


You all may have the topic somehow set to “Watching.” Check the box at the bottom to change that setting.


I’m assuming you got a notif just now about people wanting to know why they got notifs.

Seemingly yes, However I didn’t set it to watching so it has me quite confused


I just got pinged again.


Edit: I changed it now so I think we’re good.

It auto-changed to watching for me as well.

Must be some kind of bug?



It did that too me, too…



Okay, I can’t access this “school talk” either, and I’m pretty sure some of those posts were mine :stuck_out_tongue:

Wait, has this topic always been under the #site subforum? I think maybe some stuff got moved around on accident…


Sorry everyone, I was try to move posts to a pm, but didn’t know how, but also mistakenly hit the private message button, and return it back into a normal topic, as for the other problems that I didn’t know of.
