you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

These YouTube commercials are really getting irritating. It's annoying enough as it is to have to close click that hugging popup ad that comes up in the middle of every video, but now 15, 30 second commercials (and some much longer than that) are now being placed in front of even the shortest videos. Is this Google's doing, or should I be pissed at every Tom, Dick, and Harry on YouTube trying to make money on ads? I know people need to get paid, but damn, I have to sit through more commercials browsing through YouTube than I do watching broadcast television.

I never get served ads of any sort on Youtube. Some combination of my adblock filters is managing to get around it all. I also used it to stop getting redirected to the low-speed video server range Youtube has. I'm sure you know the one, where it takes literally five or more minutes on a decent internet connection to load a 30-60-second clip? Adblock is an amazing tool and I would not use the internet without it.

Knowing people are getting paid and keeping youtube a free service means ads bother me not.

Just imagine youtube as a netflix like service.

I've wavered back and forth on the issue. Addblock will allow you to select specific pages to block or unblock and I have been going along the 'block most of youtube, but unblock people I subscribe to' lines recently.

It's sort of a compromise. Not a perfect one, but it seems reasonable to me. If I like the content then I'll submit to the advertising.

My stance on YouTube ads varies on the content I'm about to view. If it's an independent user upload, where I know the producer is making a fraction of a penny for the ad before the video, I don't mind. After all, if folks like James Rolfe manage to make a living off of their productions and don't have to work 9-5 jobs to pay the bills, it means they'll have the time and resources to produce more content.

When I have to sit through a makeup commercial before watching a movie trailer on the studio's official channel, though... yeah, not a fan of that.

I just want to know, and I am semi-serious about this, WHO is sitting there that gets to decide when would be the most INOPPORTUNE TIME for the ad to pop-up?

I wouldn't really care if the thing popped up right off the start, but just as I'm getting to the crucial part of the video, BAM, there's the ad, and I gotta pause it and close the ad, or close the ad, then rewind to see what I missed.

I don't block the ads but sometimes I want to. Put them at the start and at the end, fine. But do we need the pop over ads that block sometimes the lower third of the video?

If you're on a metered connection then downloading ads, particularly video ads, can potentially cost you a lot of money. We are often paying to be advertised at.

Good point. I am paying for my cable tv company to provide the signal to me. Therefore TV studios should no longer be able to sell advertising time during my favorite programs. I shouldn't pay to be advertised at!

Not really comparable. Imagine you pay for your cable, but you're only allowed to watch 1 hour a day, commercials would eat dearly into what you're paying for. You're paying for an hour, but you're only getting 40 minutes because of commercials.

On some sites, the pre video ad will flip out and then it causes the real video to fail. Blip does it most often. Youtube, sometimes, depending on my connection.
