If I could post youtube links without them becoming videos in the box, I'd link to the "parrot singing 'Let The Bodies Hit The Floor'" video.

@  Bass X0 : (18 August 2017 - 02:51 PM)

it was....... SPOILERS..... Detective Conan.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 August 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Only almost?

@  Bass X0 : (18 August 2017 - 02:17 PM)

Don't be in an anime?

@  Bass X0 : (18 August 2017 - 01:11 PM)

An episode of an anime I watched was about a woman who killed her husband because he spent most of his money on toys instead of on her. Let this be a lesson to us all.

...crap, never mind, enough searching and I turned it up. I am convinced this would not have happened without asking.

Forgive me for being the last one aboard the bus that came and went after the previous bus... but can anyone direct me to the comic based on UW Megatronia?

@  Bass X0 : (16 August 2017 - 04:36 PM)

I'll refer to Simon Furman's work on Dreamwave.

Why do you want to remove it? Just in the way or something?

I wonder if there's any way to remove Destiny 2 from the Battlenet launcher entirely?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 August 2017 - 09:12 AM)

I still say ALL games should have a Subtitled option.. Since when I play in the family room it seems people want to talk EVERY SINGLE cut scene.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 August 2017 - 09:08 AM)

You can usually adjust that in the Settings Menu.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2017 - 07:58 AM)

It used to (on the TV I had in my room growing up, for one).

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2017 - 02:42 AM)

When you mute your tv, it should automatically display closed captioning.

Because TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 August 2017 - 04:29 PM)

TVTropes is a useful resource. Why is it that people on other sites make fun of using TVTropes terminology?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 August 2017 - 04:21 PM)

The TVTropes page even specifically mentions that it's a wrestling term.

@  JasperGunner... : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

I thought it was a wrestling term

@  RichardT1977 : (12 August 2017 - 04:09 PM)

"Heel-face-turn"? Did you just use a TVTropes term?

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:52 PM)

So each of them thinks the other one is still evil, resulting in a fight.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

A and B know each other from their times as villains, but neither is aware of the other's heel-face-turn.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:51 PM)

Eventually, a new threat leads both villains A and B into the enemy lair.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:50 PM)

Elswehere, former villain B has also given up his plans for world domination and decided to become a part-time ally of the good guys.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Former villain A has abandoned his evil ways and decided to become an anti-hero of sorts.

@  Nevermore : (12 August 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Where has this plot been done before:

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 August 2017 - 01:52 PM)

Until you get the taxes for it.

@  Evac : (12 August 2017 - 01:02 PM)

But $69,999 cars are fine

@  Bass X0 : (12 August 2017 - 05:39 AM)

Quote of the day: "When you wreck a $70,000 car you don't wanna drive $70,000 cars anymore"

@  Arazyr : (10 August 2017 - 09:31 PM)

Thanks! Glad people seem to like them!

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2017 - 09:25 PM)

Okay, those were pretty awesome. Keep up the good work, man.

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.)

Really, what with Spike and Blackrock and Marissa, it's only a matter of time.

(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.

Can GoBots go into this one, or is this one dedicated to IDW Revolution?


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.
