Just a few more days until my Battletech key goes live on GOG...

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 April 2018 - 08:51 PM)

The first Transformers live action film really IS a lot better than what popular culture has made it out to be.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2018 - 08:27 PM)

I dunno if I'd go that far. I enjoyed the first Bayformers more than the MMPR Movie remake

@  RichardT1977 : (21 April 2018 - 08:22 PM)

For the record, it was better than the (live-action) Transformers movies.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 08:21 PM)

No, I wasn't at the krispy kreme when I beat them. Wait, what?

@  Paladin : (21 April 2018 - 08:13 PM)

go back to Krispy Kreme

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2018 - 07:08 PM)

I beat five teenagers with attitude before, I can do it again.

@  Pennpenn : (21 April 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Great, after ten thousand years Wonko is free again. Does this mean more Power Rangers are needed? Again?

Oh my god! GUYS! It's actually warm enough I was able to open my window!

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 11:14 PM)

Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

@  Plokatron : (19 April 2018 - 09:43 PM)

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

@  Broadside : (19 April 2018 - 09:16 PM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 April 2018 - 10:56 PM)

You know.. for all intents and purposes, Shocker should have won in Kamen Rider 71.

@  Plokatron : (18 April 2018 - 06:55 PM)

:wtf :D :wtf Can't wait can't wait just a couple more days and I'm at Comiccon Cape! Gonna be a blast! I hope they have that freaking proper Master Sword Replica this year with the black handel (I love the one from the old comic drawn by the guy who did Cyborg 009)!!!

Oh my word it is true. The greatest Gunnery Sargent to live is now gone. Gunny I know I'd of never cut the mustard if you were my CO but as I friend I would of been humbled and honored to know a man who truly knew the corp. May the jackets always be full metal and no watermelon left standing. Forgive the jokes there but you made it clear you hated watermelons with how many you sliced, blasted and plain disintegrated on Tv. :thumbsup  (Why do we not have a Wheeljack salute emot?)  Simper-Fi Carry on Gunny see you up there in the great kingdom one day hope you enjoy the company of my great uncles and everyone who you saw last on that field of honor.

@  Plokatron : (16 April 2018 - 12:21 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (15 April 2018 - 03:52 AM)

Should we as a society change our way of life, culture and general thinking to that which people fifty years from now could look back without being judgemental of our ways? Today we look back at people from fifty years ago and openly criticise things that were considered acceptable and normal back then as not fitting in with our modern day standards that we have to censor them, or have the disclaimer that's just how it was back then. So surely things we as a population consider normal and acceptable today may not fit in with the standards of fifty years from now. But how do we know what would be acceptable and normal fifty years from now that we are supposedly doing wrong today? We don't. That's the point when we are applying modern day standards and way of thinking to a time fifty years ago.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 11:09 PM)

Thank you my friend. I hope so too.

I think the gallery approach is more user-friendly and better conveys the information -- as well as laying out all the different versions right next to each other so you can actually compare them.

 

For the template version -- are we talking about putting it at the start or the end of the page? Because at the start is gonna look awful, and I'm seriously against putting a little picture of Hot Rod or Dinobot at the beginning of a bunch of character pages that aren't Hot Rod or Dinobot.

Robert is made to withstand plenty of play, and transforms from car to robot! Go, Robert, go!

Why will we solve after Robert grasps the abysmal winter's ulcer? He may change rural tailors, do you join them? The films, tapes, and spoons are all good and fresh.

Okay, how's this attempt at explaining the cluster**** that is the TLK exclusive sublines?
http://tfwiki.net/wi...ine)#Exclusives

If it seems confusing, that's because it is. Mission to Cybertron is the only one that can be described as "business as usual".

One idea I had was to give the "international availability" stuff an optional fold-out or drop-down menu similar to the menus we have for toys with many redecos. That way the page would be more readable without losing relevant information entirely.

So I'm not exactly a fan of Anode myself but this line in her page at the first image...

 

A literal special snowflake... ugh.

 

...seems kind of mean spirited, especially with how often "snowflake" gets thrown at queer folks.

 

Obviously it wasn't Walky who put it up there but I was wondering about it.

There are lots of mean-spirited barbs on the wiki, and I'm sure plenty of other writer's-pet characters would get the same treatment if they had the poor judgement to show up in a picture with a snowflake.

Like I said I don't like Anode myself, but "snowflake" gets thrown at the queer community, and especially trans people, that it seems kind of suspect.

On a semirelated note, I've been sideeyeing this caption for a while now, and I think that in light of recent events we can safely axe it?

What if we just got rid of the "ugh" part? It would make it feel a bit less antagonistic and a bit more lighthearted, but still preserve the joke.

I'll go ahead and second dropping the "ugh" part at the very least so as to make the caption less controversial, but that particular usage of the term is a new one on me. I just double-checked Know Your Meme, and even they don't have anything on that. 

 

Standard 'net usage is "This person thinks they're so special that they can merit special privileges, but they've done nothing to merit them and may in fact be adverse to doing what's necessary to merit them." 

 

Could that have been the intent behind the caption? 

 

edit - Yeah, and while we're at it someone may as well go ahead and change that Kiss-Play reference.

Yeah the "ugh" is what it takes it into "look at this dumb shit" territory, and in the caption of the main pic of a Featured Article no less. I'd get rid of the caption all together myself, but at the very least lose the "ugh."

So that's three for dropping the "ugh" at the least. 

 

I can't seem to edit articles at the moment, or else I'd do it myself. 

 

Edit - seems to be a block on my ability to edit articles, and I don't know who to contact about that. What's the procedure?
