What the hug's a fermentarium?

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 04:34 PM)

'Dawn of the Predacus' not your cup of tea? Try TRANSFORMERS: UNITY for your BotCon 2016 comic.

I wasn't going to go in naked, but it rotted off all my clothes. And then I was already in anyway, so......

@  Paladin : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 PM)

for the last time, stop swimming naked in the fermentarium.

@  Verno : (01 May 2016 - 01:05 AM)

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

Hey everybody!

To celebrate Botcon coming this week, the Allspark Forums have been rebranded with a Botcon-themed skin! Watch out for all our Botcon coverage in the coming days. A BUNCH of staff are going to be there, including me!

I had a lot of fun working this up, and I hope it gets everyone in the Botcon mood.

For those who have never changed your skin, it should have changed automatically. For those who have, you will probably have to reset manually.

--Daytonus

P.S. If you prefer to go back to the tried-and-true, the skin selector is at the bottom of the forums.

I do not care for how the textured elements interact with the flat colored cells. the yellow/black stripes are fine though.
And that light purple really pops out - which is something text should do, not only slightly important bonus data.
Woooo!

Honestly though, this is a great skin and quite a surprise when I was looking through the forums. Always great to see the effort that the staff puts into the site and forum.

Oh, huh, this is rather nice. Close enough to the purple to seem familiar, thankfully not as much of a contrast as Classic Gears.

Didn't switch automatically for me though, odd.

They're Stunticon themed.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Thank you both! It's a bit eye-searing, but by design. Plus, everytime I see the caution stripes next to the fuschia, I go "Thrust, overdrive!"

We'll keep it as long as we are using this iteration of the forum software. After that, I plan on making a skin that would use some of these elements.

Those are understandable and valid critiques. Some of them I don't agree with, but others are worth considering. Thanks for checking it out!

Yeah, I just hit refresh, and had to check my calender at first. icon-fire.gif

Then I scrolled up and saw the Botcon coverage banner and understood, and I'm getting used to it.
