@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

Per the article this is indeed set after Battle of Gods and Resurrection of F.

I don't hate GT as much as most people seem to, but I do hope all of this new stuff eventually does outright replace it.

I like the idea that Bulla/Bra should be absurdly strong because of how powerful Vegata was when she was/will be conceived.

DBS to replace DBGT. Hopefully with Toriyama's input it'll do better. But as Gundam, Indiana Jones, and Star Wars has shown us sometimes the original creator might need to step back and let someone else take the franchise. Still I don't think it'll be hard to top GT.

Toriyama has some issues, such as forgetting characters and forms, but I still like him as a creator.

 

I read "Jaco the Galactic Patrolman" recently and thought it was a pretty fun adventure.

I wouldn't be surprised if they adapted that into a movie or OVA at some point.

I hope that, with no manga to follow, this can be paced like a real TV show. I loved DBZ, but I'm old and don't have time to get into a 300 episode series again.

I'll have to track down the new movies at some point though, have they all been dubbed?

"Battle of Gods" has been dubbed, but "Revival of F" only recently debuted in theaters in Japan.
I think it's planned to come out in English sometime in the summer.

Man, I gotta hurry up and watch Battle of Gods. I've had it for months, but I'm so used to doing other things while I watch TV that I can't find a solid hour to sit and pay attention to something that's subtitled.

 

I didn't even realize the sequel had already come out. Weird that they went back to the Frieza well. With a fanbase that memorizes and defends character power levels like they're from the Torah, it's funny to me that they'd go back 3 or 4 Big Bads (not counting GT, obviously) and try to make him threatening again.

I liked Battle of Gods, and I haven't seen Revival of F yet, but I think a series makes for a better Dragon Ball revival.

With both Battle of Gods and and the older special where they introduced Vegeta's brother I got the impression they were spending time checking a lot of boxes. Making sure they get enough references in there to satisfy all of the fans.

 

With a series I would hope they would have enough space to focus on more new stuff.(That can then be referenced in later movies)

This is totally a thing I'm down for! And I too would love to see some actual prowess from Bulla/Bra as well.  I'd like to see a canon female supersaiyan dammit!

I've been re-watching GT recently, good to watch before bed, and there were a couple moments when they were on M-2, the Machine Mutant planet, that seemed like they would have been perfect for Pan to go Super Saiyan. So disappointing.

While I am a fan of DBZ, I kinda feel the the new stuff is kinda creatively bankrupt. Vegata's brother, Bardock being the legendary Super Sayian, "new" Super Sayian forms that are just normal super sayian with red or blue hair, Freiza's new form being his old form in gold. GT wasn't perfect, but at least it had idea that didn't feel like retreading everything, even SS4 was somethign interesting and different then just a damn pallet swap. So I am not really sure if this isn't gonna be more of the same.

I think that's being a bit reductive. Dragon Ball is more than just the forms and power ups. Having a hook to get people to watch doesn't mean the rest of it can't be fun and interesting.

 

Also, isn't the Bardock thing a non-canon video game tie-in?

 

edit:

That said, I think that sentiment goes along with my wanting them to move away from the movie format.

The reason they're handing out new forms like candy might be because they think it's required for movies.

 

A new series would probably also have new forms, but there would probably be, proportionally, less time dedicated to them.
