Sadly no orchestra for me, but we did have the TFA clip as well.

@  ChessPieceFace : (27 July 2016 - 12:17 PM)

I saw Weird Al at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, playing with a full orchestra. It was pretty special. And yes, Dare To Be Stupid! With an introductory video clip from TFA, no less.

@  Vexwing : (27 July 2016 - 11:33 AM)

Got to see Weird Al perform Dare to be Stupid in his set last night! That was a nice surprise.

TMW you see a bunch of people have liked something you posted while you were away, and you're like "what did I even say?!"

@  Bass X0 : (26 July 2016 - 05:26 PM)

Regarding MTMTE#55 being released early in some places, its okay to discuss the contents of the issue as long as spoilers are kept within the thread. I refuse to read discussion threads of comics I have yet to read to avoid being spoiled. I also find it pointless to go into a discussion thread and expect to not be spoiled if you have yet to read the issue (unless you don't care).

@  Locoman : (25 July 2016 - 07:16 PM)

My story begins in nineteen-dickety-two. We had to say "dickety" because the Kaiser had stolen our word "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickety-six miles.

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 04:00 AM)

David Tennent has done a cutaway for Family Guy. Don't get to excited it was a fart joke.

I just, don't see how anyone can be seen as annoying or frusterating enough for that need. I guess it's just me.

I've lived my whole life knowing I had flaws, and it made me accept that people will have opinions I don't like.

Well, like I said, for me at least, it's a lot more than just "opinions I don't like". Usually if I block someone, it's because they frequently insult me or otherwise behave like a jerkass. (Key word being "frequently". I have a whole three people on my block list, at least two of which I know also have me blocked, so it works out well.)

Because when it comes to disagreeing, I have several posters on this board and elsewhere I like just fine despite rarely ever agreeing with them, and I know at least some of them also like me just fine. I don't have issues with anyone who pays attention to what I'm saying, doesn't insult me, and doesn't treat me like I'm an idiot who doesn't know anything, and those people rarely have issues with me.

As for people blocking me, considering the above paragraph, *shrugs a little*

The Idea is it's there and you can use it if you want to or not. Some feel the need to use it. Some feel they don't need to. It's really up to you. And yes some people do need to be put on ignore, because some people just come on the boards to troll and bait. Usually the staff takes care of them in a timely manner and then the block is no longer needed. I use to use mine for damn bots that would come on and spam the boards, but since there hasn't been an instance of that in a long time, my block list is empty, even though I disagree with alot of people on here alot.....

I dont use the block feature, but more power to the people that do. What irritates the jive outta me is when someone feels the need to announce in the the thread that they are blocking whatever person they are having a tiff with...just shut the eff up and do it, no one cares about your need to get a last "nyah nyah"

I see announcing that you're blocking a poster as a way of pointing out to the community and that poster that you find something about that poster to be unacceptable...it's a call for others to do the same. If everyone did that, those posters would go away, because no one would bother responding to their inane threads. That, or the poster might (unlikely though it is, looking at the trolls here) change their ways when they find out others have blocked them for one reason or another.

The thing is, that assumes that if someone bugs you, they also bug everyone else. Which may or may not actually be the case.

And if I thought someone genuinely was bad enough that I felt from an objective standpoint that they shouldn't be allowed to post at all, I would report that to a mod, not make a call to scapegoat someone.

Inquiry: What is the maximum number of blocked users that a single allspark profile can support?

before you have to make an alt account to block the rest of the people, but that'd just be silly.

Stupidity is universal. If it annoys one person, chances are it does annoy most other people.

Sadly, the staff allows some trolls to continue posting under a mistaken concept of tolerance. I can name several people here who, because of their arrogance, condescension, or just plain idiocy and incoherence, shouldn't be allowed to post. I've reported them before, but nothing has been done. Since the staff hasn't done anything about them, it's up to the community itself to deal with them.

The only people I have blocked are some of the anti-live-action movie crazies who came out of the woodwork in 07. I don't even really remember what they said, just that it was mind-numbing. I don't mean people who merely dislike the movie(s)...the really nutsoid ones are the ones I'm talking about, who ended up being banned anyway.

Now Kalidor, you know that's not true.

It's San Holo, the answer to your question is simple. You will be able to use the ignore feature on a particular staff members the moment a staff member is able to use the ignore feature on asinine users who annoy the hell out of them and who appear to only be around to instigate and aggravate other users. That is to say.....when he/she is no longer a staff member.

I might be going a bit further than Kal would prefer here....and if I do, he'll let me know. But....

We as a staff are rather proud of the community we've got here. We also take great care and respect in the way in which we enforce our TOS. We strive to make sure the rules are applied as fairly as possible in all cases and are not applied subjectively because of our like or dislike for a particular poster. That protects unpopular bungholes who annoy people but stay within the rules...and it also protects the bungholes who take unnecessary pot shots at the staff as well. Sometimes those people are one in the same. We follow our guidelines at times to a fault. We aren't perfect...but we very earnestly try.

So I'm going to say this without any sugar coating. If someone doesn't like the way Kalidor has set up this community and the way he and the staff runs it, they know where the door is. they don't have to come here. If they find some value in this community that they can't appear to live without....then be a positive contributor to the community. We don't promise they'll like everyone here. We don't promise they'll like everyone on staff. But we do ask that if they choose to come to this site they extend respect to those post here....including the staff. If they feel they have been wronged, report it. Even if it is a staff member. We'll deal with any report as we always do; by staff consensus. We can't promise they'll always agree with our decisions. What we can promise is that each and every report is discussed and considered with the rules in mind and the spirit of a good community at the heart of that decision making process.

We value all our community members. Even the ones we don't personally like. If we didn't....we'd just get rid of them and have our own little clique. But that isn't what the Allspark is about and that isn't how we operate.
