BOTAR

We need to get engaged, seriously. :P

It's actually pretty good, but a little big as always.

What. O~O

Anyway, glad you like it, though as always, it's a little big. (Less white pixels, though.)

And how do you all like this current post-rank?

Good, good. Glad you like it... and yes, finally a good size.

So, here's a massive one (*facepalm*), but how do you like the image itself?

A little blurry.

And I don't understand the refference... Matoran Civil War? Makuta uprising?

Yep, you got that one right. Matoran Civil War, here we come.

EDIT: And it's supposed to be blurry, I used Photoshop to blur it specifically. It's like... the haze before a storm.

Oh, now I get it.

It occurs to me I actually don't know my BIONICLE timeline very well. Was the Civil War before or after the Nui Stone insident with Tuyett? The Toa/Dark Hunter War? And when did the BoM begin scheming, before or after this?

I don't know about Tuyet/Nui Stone, but the Toa-Dark Hunter War and Teridax's takeover of the BoM were later than the Matoran Civil War (in fact, Teridax wasn't the Makuta of Metru Nui until after he stopped the Matoran Civil War).

Also, how do you like this one?

A resized picture. At least it has not been badly edited like the others.

I do apologise if I sound insulting, but most of these are pretty terrible, in my opinion.

Why not just steal BZPower's? :P

No, actually, they've done a pretty good job. :P HOWEVER, they don't even HAVE an Archives Massacre or Iron Tribe Plague post-rank, so I can hardly steal theirs.

Details will be lost if they are smaller.

But with this one, if I had done anything else, it would definitely be true that details would be lost.

Alright, two things; 1) I recommend you put the images below our avatars if you can. It makes the avatar feature more obviously; our avatars are more important than our post ranks, I beleive.

2. If you give me a year and the number of posts your ranks go up to, I could make ranks that I promise would be more polular if we polled everyone. My reasoning: Wally, you and Mo are thinking in pictures. Stop. Start thinking in symbols. For example, instead of an image of Metru-Bui becoming covered in black, think the six symbols of the six mertrus, each starting out faded and becoming full-color as it joins the war. For this, an image of the masks of Jovan's team would serve.

Hey, hey, SpectRaKy. I've told you time and again, I can't find an option to place post-ranks below avatars. When I can, I will. Since I can't, I won't.

You see, also, SpectRaKy, you're doing the details backwards. :P If you're going to make the post-ranks, you have to do it in all the right ways, in the right order... Metru Nui (or, for that matter, any real country) does not become full-colored as it goes to war. Its colors wash out, the Metrus become darker.

ALSO, SpectRaKy, you forget that Jovan's team's masks are mostly unknown. As well, Jovan himself is an Inika combiner - how are the rest of us supposed to know, other than the caption, that some Kadin is Jovan? I don't just want the post-ranks to make sense and be the right size, I want them to be recognizable for what they really represent.

I was using examples. Give me the maximum and a year, I want to test myself. :P Anyway, if you can't find a good symbol for a post rank, don't use that post rank.

There is no maximum, there are only arbitrary limits and those who set them. :P

Seriously. I haven't determined the maximum. It may vary, depending on how I distribute the next hundred post-ranks.

And also, if it's an important event in BIONICLE history, shouldn't I make a post-rank for it regardless of whether there's a good image or not?

No.
I mean seriously... Our avatars are more important than our post ranks, so we want those to be prominent.
I like Ra's idea.
Jovan's triumph could be, like, a glowing Kaden with lighting bolts around it.

Who cares if it's recognizable? There'll be a title still, eh?
And yes.
They are.

I mean, look... Your post rank is so big I thought it was an avatar at first!

It helps that I don't HAVE an avatar. :P

And fine, whatever. It's going to take me (or even SpectRaKy) a long time to figure things out now, for the new images...

So I guess we'll get started. Grim-Faced

If you want to do it, I respect that decision. You're the admin, you set up these post-ranks, they probably took a long time and hard work and you're proud of them, and don't want your work thrown away.

If you want me to do it, give me a year and I'll pitch you a new set which you can revise, and we'll have new post ranks by next February.

Nah, you're probably right. The ones before were bad enough, but this new avatar-sized one was the last straw. If necessary, I'll PM you the first bunch of post-rank names. I want the names kept, even if the horrible images have to be changed. :P

So yeah.

Not bad, not bad.

Still large, but certainly well-done, if that target was edited in yourself. I assume that's Destral, as I refuse to look at that map of the Matoran Universe... so restricting. That was the death of all fan-fiction that didn't take place in an alternate universe. Sigh Good rank, though.

I think it was an almanac, but I'm not sure ...

Really, then? Funny, I read that book on the floor of a bookstore while younger kids wondering why a kid my age would be in the little kids section tripped all over my long legs, and I don't remember seeing that picture.

I just assumed Helryx drew it as an excuse for a battle plan. You can tell she's not good, just look what happened to the Barraki/Barakki. Razz

*is shot for making a quality joke on this website*

Lol, I borrowed it from the library so people wouldn't ask awkward questions like "What are you doing in the children's section reading a reference book to a children's toy line?" :P

But the book was called "BIONICLE World". It was short, but it had this picture, so...

It was the Order of Mata Nui messing with the time stream to fix some disaster or another, although I don't quite remember what. Nor do I understant why the Order of Mata Nui had any problems when they can just randomly stop time whenever they please.

They put Takua (an Av-Matoran) in Metru Nui at the same time, I beleive.

*facepalm* They didn't pause time, SpectRaKy. Only Matchsticks can do that. They just erased everyone's memory and stuff. Which is pretty powerful too, come to think of it.

But yes, Takua was sent to Metru Nui, and other Av-Matoran were placed in various other places.

...then what's with the Vahi in the rank image?

And erasing their memories is exacttly what Makuta did. In fact, it's likely where he got the idea. Not very useful fighting anyone except Matoran, Rahaga, Turaga, and Bohrok-Va, though. No one else would fit.

...it was the entire point of BIONICLE 2: LoMN.

He tricks the Matoran into pods with the Morbu-whatever-the-plant's-name-was and erases their memory, planning to shut down the city and cause Mata Nui to go into a coma. The Toa Metru tried to stop him, failed, but took the erased Matoran, and brought them to the newly-made island of Mata Nui.

...I refuse to even enknowledge 2005. Not even going there.

Uhm so.

Since changing my own rank to Major to fit with a theme that I don't have going anymore, I have made progress on the post-ranks... progress that can, in fact, be summarized by one number.

0.

I have a few more images in the works, and I still do want better images for all previous ranks. However, I may actually begin work for the first time on improving the previous rank images rather than furthering the first-version ranks, as BS01 is out and I don't have any other good timeline sources.

I'm sure you'll all be very excited about this.[/mildsarcasm]
