Count Zero?

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

Valentine's day. Bummer.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

Well, the Wiki identified Guido as the sole cover artist of Definite #39.
https://tfwiki.net/w...lection_v39.jpg

I checked Dreamwave G1 vol. 3 (drawn by Don), and Bumblebee there is too detailed and has different pelvis details (and his plevis is consistently colored black on top of that).

I also checked IDW's Animated Movie adaptation, and the pelvis details there don't match either.

So I have no idea where this would even be from in the first place if t was indeed by Don. By the time of the Bumblebee limited series where the artwork in question appeared on the insise cover of every issue, Don was drawing the IDW ongoing in his infamous super-detailed movie-inspireed style.

So, uhm, I finally got around to complete the translation of the text story from Condor's Transformers Comic-Magazin #22 which I started back in June.

And then I did a direct comparison with the version of the story from issue 5.

Here's the breakdown:
https://tfwiki.net/w...Magazin_issue_5
https://tfwiki.net/w...agazin_issue_22

I still need to track down the M.A.S.K. version of the story...

The TRIGGERBOTS aren't mislead. They know their opponents and their weakness. And they cleverly make use of it by leading the TRIGGERBOTS away from the squares of the cities and into the skyscraper canyons

 

Amazing.

I'm fiddling around with Legends comics continuity, and I want to double check if there are any strong feelings before I potentially start moving things around.

 

Because of the flashbacks and cross-temporal nature of the Legends comic, a number of events happen out of order chronologically in Legends compared to other Japanese G1 continuity media. This is especially true with characters who got a "retrospective" of sorts in Legends like Metroplex or Trypticon, touching on their continuity in various points in time. It's been addressed different ways for different character pages, and I wanted to make a standard format. Two styles currently being used on the Wiki are as follows, with Dai Atlas being used as a simplified example.

 

Option 1) Dai Atlas

 

==Zone==

==Battlestars==

==Legends==

Four million years ago, this happened.

 

In 2038, this happened.

 

Option 2) Dai Atlas

 

==Legends (1) ==

Four million years ago...

 

==Zone==

==Battlestars==

==Legends (2) ==

In 2038...

 

I prefer the second option, which makes it easier for visitors to follow the events of JG1 timeline chronologically, instead of by publication order.

 

Thoughts or concerns?

Based on packaging and visuals, we can probably say with some confidence that Nezha is part of the Cyberverse continuity family (if not the actual continuity of the show), right?

okay so in light of some recent coordination issues, several editors (including five of the site admins) have agreed that having a dedicated space on Discord to discuss the wiki in real time would be useful, and so I've made one. Yes, this means discussion is now fragmented three ways - here, over on the Community Portal, and now in the server - but it seems that the existing forums already don't account for everyone, so I'm inclined to call this a codification of the existing situation rather than additional splintering. Admins have full privileges over the server at the moment, but they're not expected to handle any moderation; for now that's my responsibility if it turns out to be necessary, acting in capacity of being a mod for the Allspark. You can join the server here - whether you're a regular editor, an infrequent contributor (like me) or just a wiki-walker/lurker with an interest in the site's inner workings

What the hell is up with paragraph 7 on this page?

1. English

2. French

3. Spanish

4. German

5. Italian

6. Swedish

7. Indonesian

8. ?

9. Polish 

10. Dutch 

11. Croatian

12. Finnish

 

https://tfwiki.net/m...85&oldid=825672

 

https://tfwiki.net/m...88&oldid=904865

 

It looks a long-gone Indonesian user added some minor Romance language (Galician? Catalan?) with a funky fake rendering of New Zealand.

Google Translate's auto-detect says paragraph 8 is Corsican, but that's probably wrong since it leaves the majority of words untranslated.

Ive updated the page so that it now only shows three paragraphs: English, then two random translations, similar to the main page disambig. (Aaaaand I may have added Klingon and Pig Latin to the mix for good measure...)

If anyone wants to add or update any translations, be careful: there are two different choose tags and lists used on the template to make sure it doesnt show the same translation twice in a row, so youll have to make sure any changes made are to both lists.

Check out my other work!
