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.

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

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.

Alright Mother Hubbards, let's stop beating around the bush, I'm doing this:

IDW Hasbro Wiki Main Page

Give me suggestions for what templates need importing. Just had a successful go at bringing storylink over, so if I have a list I'm pretty sure I can get everything working.

For things like Revolutionaries and post-Revolution GI Joe, which will presumably be covered (for the most part) in full on TFWiki, would this link back despite them not being just Transformers? No sense in redundancy of information, but... well, they're not Transformers.

I think grouping things under the sole basis of "TFWiki doesn't allow them" is an incredibly bad idea.

(It's not like there's that much GoBots information in existence. Anyone could probably put a functional GoBots wiki together in a week if they wanted to.)

(Also, if the GoBots wiki happens, you might want to consider having character infoboxes unlike TFwiki; f'rinstance, most GoBots characters have only one known alt-mode, unlike Transformers characters.)

I don't have a ShoutWiki account, but would be happy to get one and contribute to this. Especially since I only really started to become active on TF Wiki with Revolution.

I can do ROM stuff.

My suggestion would be that anything TFWiki will be covering in entirety gets linked out. Zero point in duping content/splitting effort.

I agree with Broadside that arbitrary grouping together of things is probably unwise.

But the positive is that once I've hacked together the CSS for all the necessary templates on this wiki, it ought to be pretty easy to set up another one for GoBots.

I feel like TFWiki could stand to have character infoboxes, though. Faction, franchise and year of origin, continuity family.


(Yes, I know there's the first sentence in articles, but it was always a pretty unappealing design choice to me.)

Okay, so I've set up what's hopefully the basic set of templates needed.

I copied over your Micronauts: Revolution template as a test bed, Broadside, and everything seems to be in working order:

http://idwhasbro.sho...uts:_Revolution

Interwiki linking is done by appending 'transformers:' to the start of a link, see that article for examples. If anyone runs into a template they want, tell me and I'll try and sort it out.

Seriously, though, if it's a Revolution wiki, then sure, it's a bad idea. If it's, say, an expanded Hasbroverse idea, then GoBots probably fits right in. And I think the folks at Hasbro would be tickled pink to see an expanded Hasbroverse wiki, assuming the quality is there.

I'm not sure how you'd define "expanded Hasbroverse", though. Do you include, like, Stretch Armstrong? Candy Land? Oh, god, would you cover the entirety of Dungeons and Dragons!?

I think that's just generally too broad a scope to be useful. A "GI Joe and offshoots wiki" covering all iterations of those franchises, sure. An "IDWverse Wiki" covering the non-Hasbro properties but only their IDWverse iterations, sure. But, like... "non-Transformers Hasbro properties that have interacted with Transformers in some way" is just going to be a mess.
