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)

@  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)

@  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

Dunno how likely these are, but given how all the other unlikely predictions turned out, might as well post it here.

 

why are they trying to console me with "don't worry the toys won't be headmasters" like, you don't know me, man

An Optimal Optimus with either TM Primal or G1 Optimus is all my gimme.

 

But probably not from a mold shared with Apeface.

Would it have killed Hasbro to have actually put Apeface and Snapdragon in the line that was all about Headmasters and even have triple-changing Headmasters?

 

Seems so.

 

The way I look at it is that Hasbro were only able/willing to make five unique Voyager molds for Titans Return. Since every Voyager had to be a triple changer, they decided that doing the three triple changer Decepticons and the remaining triple changer Autobot was a better choice. And Galvatron's just in there as the big name character. If the line had continued longer, I would have fully expected Apeface and Snapdragon to have been the next two molds, even if they had to share a mold in the same way Alpha Trion and Broadside do. 


Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

What makes me raise my eyebrow at this is that Optimus Primal won the whole "Who is the Next Prime" vote, and seeing that lead to an Amazon/BBTS exclusive seems a little... off... to me?

 

Then again, Victorion was a a poll winner, and wasn't she exclusive?

 

And I guess there could be multiple Primals, though I'd have to admit that would surprise me, winner or no.

After all, this will be our second 2017ish Apeface.  There's room for two Primals.

Hm... how about Apeface and Snapdragon with regular heads... that can be removed like Nitro Zeus', so you can swap them with their respective Titan Masters?  I wouldn't mind that.

Eight deluxes, none of them new molds, presumably from after the 2012 design shift, as Beast Wars characters? The options seem limited. Obviously there's Waspinator and Rattrap, but if you're using them you'd use the voyager Rhinox too.

I guess if they do the Titans Return Grotusque I've been hoping for, they could redeco him as an unsatisfying TM2 Cheetor. Weirdwolf as Silverbolt? Paralon as Scorponok is obvious but also redundant.

I kind of do expect a Beast Wars segment in POTP, but I don't expect it to be this.

This was also some anonymous 4chan rumor but I saw something on Twitter a few weeks ago that was saying that the whole main gimmick of PotP was going to be some weird toys-to-life, mobile app thing. I wish I could remember where I saw it so I could actually share it and remember what the other details of it were but it certainly sounded more interesting than this. Also fairly unlikely, but still.

I took this rumor to say Optimus and Megatron won't be headmasters cause that would make me sad? But it says nothing to confirm the horrorcons would not have them.

I'm calling bull on this rumor.

I mean everything here seems kinda believable, but that doesn't instill me with confidence. Also eight Beast Wars deluxes yet no original molds? I mean there's not enough deluxe animal molds in the whole Generations line, let alone ones that line up well with Beast Wars characters.

I mean unless we're getting some Predacons in PotP? And this line is repaints of them? That could work. But I feel like whoever has this awesome inside knowledge would have hyped that up too

I think we've just hit a point where there was a string of fairly credible rumors and and not a lot of this sort of awesome inside sources spam, so we're back to being somewhat vulnerable to them. I genuinely don't think this warrants consideration, it's just spam. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?

 

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Again, yeah, while the "oh but they won't be Headmasters" thing is a bit if a plus for ME, it's also one of the biggest strikes here for the same reason -- as it kind of comes across as "don't worry they finally wised up and stopped making everything Headmasters".

If Apeface and Snapdragon are PoTP product, then, like, Titans Return is actually kind of over, since they would have been the final Voyager wave, so maybe they should hurry announcing POTP officially or something.
