Our lead programmer for the site, Metax, has formally changed his username to Akihabara! So if you need him for anything, you can get a hold of him here: Link

Oh yeah, it's the new year. Sweet! Too bad new Hero Factory sets aren't coming out in North America until March.
September 7, 2013
For all it's quiet periods, HS01 is still trucking along. Still some things in the works, but it's tough to get it all out in a timely fashion. Any and all help is appreciated.

Been a while since we've had some updates, eh? That one's on me. Got some cool stuff going on that we can hopefully share in the coming days.
Also believe it or not, we're actually looking for things like set reviewers and news reporters, so if you're interested, we'll take applications.

Hey look, a new Main Page design. A little simpler than the previous one, but more streamlined, and helps match BS01's. It's still in the process of being updated, but if you have any comments on the new digs, or suggestions for improvements, the main page talk is always open!
January 3, 2013
Merry 2013mas, everybody! Hope you all enjoyed the holidays and such. The wiki has seen an uptick in activity, which is always nice. There were some crucial things missing, but we have a lot of good stuff now. For anybody looking for some stuff to do, there's the new (and first, actually) Featured Project on the front page, and a general list of tasks I keep around for stuff that needs to be done.
The Main Page will theoretically be updated to be more like BS01's at some point; if you have any opinions on that, shout out on the Main Page talk!
Additionally, some summer 2013 photos have appeared on the internet; despite the apparently legitimate origins as such, the information and pictures are still not confirmed to be legally released, so hold off on introducing them to the wiki for now.

Hey look, we have a new skin! Hopefully with more to follow. We're almost completely up to date with all current info, but there's some stuff (like the Doom Box) that we could use some help with.
In other news, 2013 pictures of Hero Factory have started cropping up on the interwebs. We ask that people not post these yet, as they are most likely leaked, and it's not our place to make the information available just yet. We'll let you guys know when that stuff is fair game.
August 6th, 2012
As part of an effort to keep things more manageable and up to date, HS01 has reverted back to the old style of current events, with news being condensed to allow more concise information to be conveyed.
In other news, the site itself has featured a few small changes over the past several weeks, the most noticeable being that the "coming soon" box, previously an ironic mainstay of the front page, is now home to two separate features: Featured Article and Featured Image! One or the other may rotate out as necessary for other features, but for now, we have these two for you to purview and maybe discover something new. Thanks to Metax for introducing a quick change that allowed this all to be possible.
That's all we have for now, folks. If there's any questions, or you want to find out how to help out around the wiki (I think BS01 needs more actual work, but I'm lonely over here) don't hesitate to contact any of our staff members (mostly me).

From the BS01/HS01 staff to you, our users, and all of our readers and browsers, we wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

So I finally got around to installing a new extension into HS01 (and coming soon to BS01 if it works properly) that will prevent Spambots from infesting our fine site(s).
It's called Asirra (Animal Species Image Recognition for Restricting Access) and it's been developed by Microsoft Research. It's 100% free and, in my view, the best way to block any unauthorized user (also known as a spambot) from registering. With any luck, if it works, we'll be able to avoid them in the future, and not have to work as hard to keep the site from being cluttered with spam.
Feel free to leave me a note about it, and any suggestions for more work done to the sites (aside from Skins on either site, I've been -busy-) -

After weeks of coding efforts, HS01 has finally started implanting new templates. Though the changes are mostly aesthetic, we hope that they provide a new dimension of enjoyability to your wiki experience.
Please bear with us while the templates are all changed; there may be some differences and errors in the interim.
November 3, 2011
HS01 now has an Articles for Debate page. If there is a page you would like to see, or wouldn't like to see, or would like changed somehow, let your voice be heard! This page is the one-stop shop for discussing the nature of pages, so don't be afraid to speak your mind. Remember, this now reverses the previous policy of instantaneous page creation; all new pages must go through this process.

We appear to have a new staff member. His name appears to be Aanchir. You should have the appearance of going to congratulate him.

It's been a solid six months since HS01 opened, and already I would dare to call us the most accurate and comprehensive Hero Factory wiki out there. It's all thanks to editors (and viewers, you unknown subjects you) like you who help keep us inspired. We have plenty more features coming for you guys to enjoy, so live long and prosper.

Good news everyone! BrickCon 2011 is starting up October 1st and 2nd! If you are in the Puget Sound region, I highly recommend you check out the sights, sounds and smell of Seattle Center and check out BrickCon. If not, you can still be excited I guess XD.

It's Swert's birthday. Kthx.

Oh by the way, it's Kayru's birthday today. Yaay and stuff.

Please help up welcome our newest staff member, Argentum! His experience with wiki management makes him a valuable addition to this staff.
August 28, 2011
HS01 now has a brickshelf account! It's still a work in progress (especially since Brickshelf has placed new restrictions on PDF uploads, which hampers the ability to get instructions on there), but feel free to check it out here. The intent is not to become a substitute for HS01 in terms of images, or to house everything HS01 already has, but rather to supplement the wiki with images that it may not have room for, or can otherwise not find an appropriate place. If you have any suggestions as to what we can upload, feel free to contact a staff member, or leave a note on the talkpage.

I keep forgetting this is the month of a lot of staff births. KZN02 turns 20 today. Now go tell him to get back to work.

Hey guess what? Dorek turned older. Wish him happy birthday on his talk page.

I would say I'm a horrible person for not having updated, but in truth, very little has actually occurred; the summer wave has been revealed, but not released, and the story is in exactly the same place as it was. This month, for the first time in what feels like ages, there has been a Hero Factory spread in the LEGO Magazine; two, in fact! Summer set info is now allowed, etc etc.
January 10, 2014
For anybody who has played the Invasion From Below game, you've gotten a nice taste (read: the whole thing) of the new Hero factory episode. 2014 is kicking it into high gear with the products... just not in North America, where the sets have been delayed for a few months. Regardless, the main site has updated (even if it doesn't feature any new content) and the material is still available.
