after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Where'd the name Vexilium come from?

 

Also, the Perceptor profile has an extra sentence from Thrust's. Just a heads-up.


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

When discussing the potential of doing other Hearts of Steel characters, I noticed that Centurion and Domitius Major were both derived from Roman words. Because of that, I suggested we follow that theming for the rest of the Axalon crew. While I (jokingly) suggested Shockwave's counterpart be named "Fascinus," Vexwing came up with the much better name "Vexillum," which is basically a military standard/war flag used by the Roman armies. Since a vexillum would be used by the army to represent the Empire, it made sense as the name of the guy that Shockwave would use to represent himself.

 

Also, FOR HUG'S SAKE YOU GOTTA BE FREAKING KIDDING ME!!! HOW MANY HUGGING TIMES DID WE PROOF THIS THING AND NOBODY (myself included) CAUGHT THAT?? GAH!!!!!

Yeah, like Daniel said. We were continuing the Roman naming precedent set by Centurion and Domitius, and a Vexillum, being the military standard used to represent a unit, seemed appropriate for the guy Shockwave chose to represent himself.

 

It also has a double meaning, as it's also a genus of sea snails, and I thought a giant armored sea snail was a decent analog for the ironclad warship he would adopt in HoS. The one image we have of his Eukarian design was pretty spiky and nondescript, so I thought it was as good a beast mode as any.

 

I refer to the beast mode as a "spiny gosupu sea snail" as a nod to the Mystery of Convoy snail-like Gosupu enemies, but I didn't picture him looking quite like them. That giant eye that was on his chest would certainly feature prominently beast mode. It's something I intend to sketch up at some point.

As an editor, I think it would be good to do Slide and Oiler as a pair with a single profile.

I'd like to claim Armada Red Alert, Armada Swindle, Armada Smokescreen, and RID Side Burn then.

 

Is your Swindle profile to be spun off from the cameo in Optimus Prime #19? And Smokescreen from Lost Light #2?

Just curious if the cbz version is available yet and I just missed the post? The pdf (for me, anyway) has a "glitch", I guess, where just as I'm almost to the bottom of Cosmos' profile the zoom drops down to where the text is almost unreadable and trying to reset/zoom back in results in needing to scroll side to side to read.

Not yet. We're also going through and making some corrections to the first issue first. Be sure to keep your eyes glued to this thread for updates.

Guys, I'm going to have to withdraw my claims. I've been poking at this for several days and the inspiration just isn't coming.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

No need to withdraw yet, Tyranno. We're not in a rush, there's no hard deadline, and we have tons of characters to fill future issues. Perhaps inspiration will strike at some point.

Yeah, like SoS said, no worries. If by chance someone else wants to do a character you claimed, then we'll worry about that. But you've got plenty of time to do your stuff.
