Count Zero?

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Please ignore.  Old man here apparently doesn't know the difference between the "Search" field and the "Shoutbox" field.

Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 11:05 PM)

Oh, Wicked Cool Toys got the Halo toy license. This is a big year for Jazwares

@  Paladin : (16 February 2020 - 07:20 PM)

business is booming.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2020 - 06:49 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 February 2020 - 01:00 PM)

This guy.

@  Roddie Luver : (15 February 2020 - 10:55 PM)

Hey

@  Kalidor : (14 February 2020 - 03:01 PM)

The ones that get me are the "Uploaded 12 years ago" ones

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 02:49 PM)

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2020 - 12:16 PM)

Besides: cupid freaks me out. "Find someone to love, or I'll SHOOT YOU".

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 12:11 PM)

It's just the day before Cheap Chocolate Day.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Meh, just more game time.

@  Paladin : (14 February 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Valentine's day. Bummer.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

@  TriBlurr : (09 February 2020 - 11:58 AM)

Needs more zone defense. Call Scrapper

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2020 - 11:29 AM)

MORE POINTS FOR BLITZWING!

@  Donocropolis : (09 February 2020 - 09:33 AM)

MP-7 Thundercracker recovers....he's at the 40....the 20....AND HE SCORES!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (08 February 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Reserved for Masterpiece Kup.

@  Sabrblade : (08 February 2020 - 09:49 PM)

MP-10 Convoy redecoed.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2020 - 06:56 AM)

Hey all. We've started an official Discord server for the Allspark, and after selectively circulating some invites to shake things out, we're now going fully live. The invite link is here: 

 

https://discordapp.com/invite/9esErqN

 

If you're not familiar with Discord, it's a live chat system often used for gaming chats, most similar to Slack, or more distantly similar to Skype and Google Hangouts, which are another step over from modern IRC systems like Riot. It's not very much like old-school IRC at all, given the persistent log, image embedding, text formatting, support for voice and video, *droning continues*

 

If you're not familiar with any of those things, Discord is a live chat client where we can argue about stuff at the speed of type and Enter. We've been having quite a bit of fun doing that the past few days and would love to have anyone join who's interested. 

 

You can join using the Discord web client without even creating a permanent account, although creating one will give you options like setting an avatar and keeping access to servers you join without an invite. Installing the desktop or mobile client (which works on everything, we've checked) gets you desktop notifications and the whole biscuit. 

 

We currently only have one discussion channel open, but will open more as needed in the future for topics as they become recurring. Current discussion is on health and safety standards regulation in Ohio.

 

Come play!


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?

Naw, that's the Mayhem server. If you're fun we* might invite you.

 

We**'d like to note that the Allspark Rules and Guidelines apply to the official Allspark server. That means no personal attacks, nudes and lewds, and all the usual. We do watch and moderate the conversation but please feel free to pop one of us a direct message if you feel there's a problem. 

 

Some super-random Discord basics: 

 

• Discord uses markdown for text formatting. It's a standard set of tokens used in a lot of places that gets you things like *italics*, **bold text**, ~~strikethrough~~ and so on, though not colors. = ] You can see the official guide for more details. 

 

• You can embed images or attach files simply by dragging and dropping them into the chat. Image URLs and YouTube videos will automatically embed the content in the message.

 

• You can edit your messages, either by right-click, or by the up arrow if it's the last thing you typed. This can be very handy.

 

• Discord is a bit emoji-crazy, a perk of which is emoji reactions to others' messages. Right-clicking a message will allow you to pin an emoji reaction to it. Kinda handy in the way that a "like" is.

 

• A lot of personalization and configuration magic happens in your user settings menu, which you'll find in the cog icon at the lower left of the screen near your username. Points of interest are the My Account settings, where you can set your display name and avatar, and the Notifications settings, where you can control ... notifications. But there's a lot of stuff to tweak and finagle in there if needed. 

 

• Notifications can be a bit confusing and overwhelming, but they're something you can set both app-wide and per-server, and something you'll probably want to play with to suit your taste. Personally, I have notification sounds turned off, and mobile notifications turned off for all the major servers I'm a part of, with the result that I get a beep on my phone or tablet if I get a direct message and am not on my computer at the time, but not every three seconds when there's activity ... yeah. Play with it to suit your taste. You can find your notification settings for individual servers in the menu next to the server's name at the upper left, and your universal notification settings in your own user settings menu.

Allspark community group for Transformers, Gaming, Tech, Comic Books, Action Figures and anything else related to the geeky culture.
RULES:
1) Play nice and don't be a d!ck. Be respectful with others in the group.
2) No porn, spam, or pirated stuff
3) No slurs about race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, self identification, etc

We want this place to be a fun place and not be overly bogged down by rules. While we may have very few rules, more can and may be added in the future if individuals take advantage of our established rules.

 
Just be a righteous spark and you'll be fine.

Yeah, sorry about that. I got antsy about the name since just plain old allspark is taken (For now)

 

I had it as allspark.tv but that's more oriented towards the youtube channel and I wanted it to be more about the community but that seems like allspark.community might be too long (Though it might change again). Right now it's set to allspark.forums so we'll just see how it goes. 

 

On a personal level, I'm not really a huge fan of facebook, but I can't shake my fist and yell at clouds about it because our community overall matters to me more than the software being used to experience it. 

 

And the fact that so many people there now are long time forum members that haven't been around to the actual forum in ages, I think we did a good thing. I don't like splitting things up per se, but I do think facebook is just something 99% of people use now and it's good to diversify to a point.

 

Plus, it officially replaces the temp spark as a place for posts discussions (with discord still being there for live chat stuff, which has also gained a lot of users).
