@  wonko the sane? : (18 November 2017 - 08:37 AM)

You won't be at school or work anymore... so mitigated success.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2017 - 05:21 PM)

Just don't try to plug yourself into an outlet. It won't end well.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2017 - 04:57 PM)

Trying to stay awake at work or school is a lot like using your controller when it's on low battery

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

Someone remind me again: which versions of the CW Hot Spot mold did not suffer from bad hip ratcheting?

@  BlackMax : (16 November 2017 - 06:33 PM)

Holy crap I just pushed the F11 key for the first time on a keyboard since about 1994.

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 November 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Hit F11 Pennpenn

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:15 AM)

I get that people like tabs. Fine. Whatever. I just detest the fact that most current browsers don't let you have the option of just hiding the bar away so I don't have to even think about the wretched bullshit things.

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

Does anyone know of a browser that doesn't force tabs on you? Just... any sodding browser that doesn't have tabs.

@  Telly : (16 November 2017 - 01:59 AM)

being mostly wrong is better than being TOTALLY wrong!

@  BlackMax : (15 November 2017 - 09:26 PM)

ALL HAIL THE BLESSED OCTOBUTT.

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 08:24 PM)

I really hope so. All of my high school drawings and notes (Hand-written notes! God, I'm old.) from girls are in a chest in the attic of my parents house. I'll check when I visit!

@  MEDdMI : (15 November 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Do you still have those drawings?

@  BlackMax : (15 November 2017 - 06:31 PM)

I think lesbian ninjas is just an unmitigated good idea. *shrug*

@  Devcon : (15 November 2017 - 05:56 PM)

well, that and Balloon Doggies, Mr secretary

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 04:12 PM)

It's my crowning Allspark achievement! You're welcome.

@  Strafe : (15 November 2017 - 04:05 PM)

"Someone" being me. No mystery to it, I used to draw a lot during class when I was in high school. I came up with lesbian ninjas, which were a specialized team of assassins with amazing hair and impeccable style. I scanned some of my drawings and mentioned them a few times on the ezboard 17 years ago, and people seemed to like the idea.

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Thanks in any case!

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 01:05 PM)

Oh, wow. That is ages ago. 

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:03 PM)

ages ago meaning when the spark was still on ezboard

@  Telly : (15 November 2017 - 01:02 PM)

i think maybe it was part of a title of a movie someone posted ages ago and the "lesbian ninja" part stood out and people just latched on to it. please note this is possibly totally and completely wrong cause my memory is terrible anymore

@  Copper Bezel : (15 November 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I don't think it's a fandom thing, I think it's an Allspark thing. Or that's been my perception. Mayhem has some lesbian ninja regulars now but I think the reference is much older. = ] 

@  Robowang : (15 November 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Who knows. I always thought it was stupid.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

What is this fandom's deal with lesbian ninjas? Is it some fantheory about Nightbird or something?

@  OrionPax44 : (15 November 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Huh my phone didn't even alert me for some reason. Guess it only does on the Mayhem Discord Hangouts??

@  BlackMax : (14 November 2017 - 09:41 PM)

Telly, you are FIRED as my PR agent. :D

@  Telly : (14 November 2017 - 09:05 PM)

you all dont know what you missed. there was fun. there were games. lesbian ninjas. tang and even a couple human sacrifices.

Just wanted to say thank you. As someone who doesn't play, it's really awesome to see these scenes.

So we have joined up with another set of Allspark Alliances. Allspark Autobot is still going to be a casual alliance, but this will give our more experienced players a place to move up to without leaving the family. It will also enable us to move players between the alliances to help them get the event rewards.

 

My line app id is allsparkautobot, so please get that app and add me.

Nope, it is just our alliance, Allspark Autobot, joining up with Allspark Knights, Allspark Scouts, Allspark Titans, Allspark Rangers, Allspark Blitz, and Allspark Legion. The idea is to move players around from alliance to alliance to ensure that the good dedicated players are balanced between the alliances for events. In this upcoming event, if we all stayed in Allspark Autobot, we might have got 130K in points. While the initial thought for this weekend was to move some of their heavy hitters down to help us get to 200K for the four star crystal, we then saw that the crystal would be at 360K. So we made the decision to move some of our people around to help out the other alliances reach 360K and reward our heavy hitters with a 4 star crystal. Then next week we will probably reshuffle the alliances again. I would advise that everyone here get an app called Line. it is the way for us all to communicate between the alliances and the chat messages don't disappear after a while like it does in-game. Once you do that then join the following chat:

 

http://line.me/ti/g/JrFeY7ZUZW

 

You can either choose to move to a new group (I think that they are still looking for more people for Allspark Scouts) or just tell them that you are happy in Allspark Autobot.

I think I'm done.  I just can't get into the game anymore.  I don't play wars, as I can't get past the first base anymore.  I rarely play during the week, don't play non-team weekend events, and only do the minimum on team events so I don't get kicked.  It's just not fun for me anymore, and hasn't been for a while.

 

So, thanks for the team, and good luck with the new alliance.

So what makes somebody a dedicated player? I’m on every weekend. I get the required points plus a few extra, baring being busy from work. . Does that not make me dedicated?

My apologies if I worded that horribly. My ex-wife always said that I had a casual way of demeaning someone with my words. I try to be conscious of that when writing but sometimes I slip up. Please allow me to clarify. The daily quota for Allspark Knights is 3000 points, but that is their highest level alliance. The lower level alliances are around 1200-2800 daily quota, which is higher than we would normally set for our alliance but still quite obtainable for most of our players. As I said, please feel free to join up on the Line App before the event and get sorted on one of the alliances for a good chance at getting to 360K. We would love to have you join up. They will require you to have the Line app though.

So SOS explained it a lot better than this in game. The way he explained it, it sounds a lot better. The way it was explained here, and the way I took it, was if you had time you would come help us who weren’t dedicating their entire weekends to the game with your grace if you got the top prize first. So my apologies for being a little aggressive with my responses. I just play this game to have some fun. And just like guilds I’ve been in WoW, they want to become elitist. I mountain bike, road bike, hike, fish, work, have a 1 month old and a wife to be with. This game will always take a backseat to the wife and son and now of those other things listed as my time to do them is limited as well.

That's how my old alliance did it, but then eventually everyone left for higher teams. 

 

It's how my new alliance does it, and it seems far more balanced and well-maintained. It's a good system if you have dedicated commanders to run it properly. 

 

It basically ensures that if you're a mooch who doesn't do much and still expects prizes, you don't get them - but you still get to play casually.

Well, I got a duplicate 4 star Strafe, so that sucks. But we are back, and we are bringing a bunch of their dumpers with us to boost the alliance up. I doubt that we will get to 360K, but we can probably get to 200K!
