I've been watching clips of the Japanese dub of the Sunbow movie. Comes with added SCREAMS!

But the ugly barnacle realised he would grow up to become a beautiful oyster. Only he was killed before then for being so ugly.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 09:46 AM)

That didn't help at all!

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 09:32 AM)

Once there was an ugly barnacle. He was so ugly, that everyone died! The end.

Sanity is the crutch of a dull mind.

@  BlackMax : (29 April 2017 - 06:04 AM)

The former is needful. The latter is a situationally necessary demeanor.

@  BlackMax : (29 April 2017 - 06:03 AM)

I think people are confusing sanity with normalcy.

instead of blackjack, we have dice rolls in the RP and there was an actual card game in another thread.

@  Bass X0 : (28 April 2017 - 05:19 AM)

They could start their own Beast Mayhem with Blackjack and Hookers.

@  MEDdMI : (28 April 2017 - 05:16 AM)

There's plenty of talented artists in Beast Mayhem! ....though we tend to draw things that can't be posted anyway. :doh

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

Actually, this should be considered. The difference, at present, is that the FB archive is just the copied text. No images (unless, of course, I'm mistaken, which happens). We'd be talking here about actually archiving that bio card images (ideally, IMHO).

But, honestly, I see no good reason not to, assuming that FunPub has abandoned them.

If we REALLY want to be legally clear, let's get permission from them. Would they actually say "no"?

This is exactly the kind of thing you don't ask for permission to archive, because if you do, the rightsholder is obligated to say no. You do it, they ignore it, life goes on.

First, they're probably not in a position to tell people what they can and can't do with Hasbro's IP. Second, allowing unofficial use of IP by anybody weakens its protection against use by anyone else. It's the same "don't ask and I won't tell you" relationship the wiki itself is founded on.

There are images in the Facebook archives, yes, but all videos are either in GIF image form or merely linked to with transcripts of the videos' dialogue.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I just remembered asking about the tech specs some time back, at least for regular retail characters, and I don't remember the precise reasoning, just that it amounted to "we can't/won't for x reason." I figured the same held true here.

 

Which has been a slight bother on occasion when I needed that particular type of info, but hey.

Bumping this thread to ask a favor. Does anyone know the exact date(s) that the online bios for Stopgap, Cryotek, Dirge, Backslash, and Buzzbomb were posted? I've already determined the dates for the Mini-Con bios thanks to the links Verity posted on the first page. If not, can anyone remember a rough estimate as to when they were posted?
