@  LBD "Nyt... : (25 March 2017 - 05:04 AM)

So I'm looking around at my settings at the moment, and I'm noticing "Manage Facebook" and "Manage Twitter," but I have to log in with those to see anything. What do those offer?

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Thanks.

@  Jalaguy : (24 March 2017 - 03:38 PM)

A gun was definitely jumped, we'll make sure it doesn't happen again. Big apology to everyone who wanted to stay spoiler-free.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 March 2017 - 03:08 PM)

Oh hey the news post in question turned up on my Tumblr dash, too. Thanks for that. Thanks a lot.

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 10:29 AM)

I was actually looking forward to playing along with the surprise aspect this time, yes. I'm not heartbroken or anything, but it would have been fun. It's more the lack of consideration by some newb mod.

@  EShadowP : (24 March 2017 - 10:25 AM)

The only silver lining to this being the final TFSS is the fact that I no longer have to explain to people why some of us actually ENJOY THE @#$%ing SURPRISE ASPECT OF THE SUBSCRIPTION.

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 07:24 AM)

Wow, not that big a deal, but the big front page article revealing the TFSS figures is pretty douchey considering a lot of people were discussing the surprise element and there was already a spoiler thread set up. Nice move.

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:45 AM)

Yikes. Sounds more like GTA.

@  Dracula : (23 March 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Someone drove a car through a crowd of people and then into the front gates of parliament, I think, and stabbed a police officer before being killed by other officers

@  Robowang : (23 March 2017 - 08:10 AM)

I coincidentally watched London Has Fallen yesterday afternoon, heard an offhand remark about a terrorist attack in London on the radio yesterday afternoon, and somehow put the two together in my sleepy haze. I need to read what actually happened.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 March 2017 - 11:21 PM)

I might watch Kong: Skrull Island this weekend.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:48 AM)

(At least I'm assuming it was "instead." I guess I don't know for sure that Eddie Murphy's character wouldn't have been Kirk's love interest.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 March 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno about that. Star Trek IV was pretty great but I'm haunted by the knowledge that at one point instead of a love interest it was going to have Eddie Murphy.

@  Paladin : (22 March 2017 - 07:28 AM)

you know a remake/movie's in trouble when adding Eddie Murphy to it might make things BETTER...

@  Waspinator : (21 March 2017 - 08:22 PM)

Oh wow, you're not kidding: they're actually planning to remake Mulan without the songs. Idiots.

If they had a sword they would not get bored. They would not get bored, that horrible Horde. They would find a lord - a lord and his ward - and use their sword to slice the lord. Yes slice the lord just like a gourd! Then the ward they turn themselves toward that horrible Horde. That horrible terrible deplorable Mongol Horde. And they would not be bored if they had a sword.

You're not missing anything. Either in the "quality of the stories themselves" way OR in the "adds to the greater universe" way.

I still haven't read the -acies despite owning most of them in print...

@  Dracula : (20 March 2017 - 03:29 PM)

I like Origins, I feel like the later stories add to it and make it better than what it was when written.

@  Telly : (20 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

@jalaguy-well if i get bored with the stories i can always skip them lol

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

Origins felt like it was Megatron telling his own story and leaving out the parts he didn't like.

@  Jalaguy : (20 March 2017 - 02:49 PM)

Origins-and-acies-first reading orders are A Bad Idea.

Inspired by some person whining about GoBots on TFWiki this morning on Tumblr, I am going to reiterate my standing offer as publicly as possible:

If you are a person who would contribute to a GoBots sister wiki, stand up and be counted. If there's interest, I will create said wiki on ShoutWiki, and set it up with the basic set of templates needed for people to jump in and start making articles for characters, episodes, etc. You'll be able to go about everything exactly as if you were doing it on TFWiki.

Thanks to my having already done the legwork for the IDW Hasbro Wiki, this will be very simple - just starting the wiki and then importing an XML of all the relevant templates and CSS. I have no particular interest in contributing to a GoBots wiki, but I'm 100% ready and willing to get it running for those who would.

I'll be posting this in the TFWiki community portal too.

DISCLAIMER: If you've read this and don't come forward with your interest, you void any right to bring up the topic of GoBots coverage on TFWiki ever again, lest you be hurled into the hugging sun.

EDIT: The GoBots Wiki is born!

Someone's complaining about GoBots being covered on TFWiki? But doesn't Hasbro own the property now? And there's been so much crossing over that separating them would be a nightmare.

I probably would. My brother got me the series on DVD and I could probably use an excuse to push through it.

-ZacWilliam, unfortunately my favorite part of wiki writing has always been the character bios and most Go-Bots aren't nearly as developed personality wise as TFs (thanks Mr Budiansky) which makes that harder and less fun.
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

Complaining about them not getting coverage on the wiki. Some people believe that GoBots being established as part of the Transformers multiverse means that the entire franchise should be covered on TFWiki.

No, someone's complaining about GoBots not being sufficiently covered on TFWiki. Apparently we're petulant children throwing temper tantrums, and it's all because GoBots were cheaper in the eighties and we hate poor people, and also we fail to cover GoBots in some way that we do fully cover other non-Transformers properties such as the Lunchables Brigade, and other such made-up bullshit.

Anyway I have very little to contribute to a GoBots wiki but I guess if I see something I can do I'll do it.

On that note: Given how much less "diverse" GoBots is than Transformers, I think putting together some form of character infoboxes listing alt mode, first appearance in fiction, toy source, etc might be a good idea. No reason to just blindly ape TFWiki in everything.

Sure thing.

 

I'm assuming that it's going to be like the current setup for the IDW Revolution thing, where we keep crossover adventures (e.g. the Monster GoBots appearing in BWU) on the main TFwiki, while cartoon and comic appearances and... stuff... (did the GoBots even have a comic?) go on the new wiki.

 

I also vote to name the website the God Damn GoBots Wiki.

If you have your heart set on Machine Robo, you could always try to hunt down that one French(?) dub of a Machine Robo anime that tried to make it into a sequel to Challenge of the GoBots.

What I've seen of the MR wikia site is solid. It seems to be the work of a small team, and the malicious Wikia ads keep me from exploring it in depth, but that's not a knock against the work. We might consider asking them to come aboard.
