I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

Shut up rattrap.

I just had a foreign word which, based on my research after the fact, is completely harmless in context, and which I was just using because it happens to be the official Canadian French name of a Transformers toy, censored by the swear filter because it apparently happens to contain an English swear word I wasn't even aware of. Essentially, the old "Scunthorpe problem" (an absolute clbuttic, I might add).

The word in question is the French term for "firecracker" (also the name of a Generation 2 Go-Bot). It'd be akin to filtering the English word "firecracker" because it contains the term "cracker" that might be considered rude depending on the context.

 

Is there any way to fix this?

While grammatically incorrect, you can add an umlaut over the a and it will be allowable.

 

As so

Changing the color of one letter to black also works, as I found:

Pétard

It's not about completely taking words out of the swear filter. It's about only filtering words by themselves or in specific combinations, if possible. Like a swear filter that may not allow "ass" by itself, but doesn't turn an "assassination" into a "buttbuttination" either.

Wait a sec. There's got to be some flexibitly, because "motard" works just fine. Why does that work but "péScrubbed" doesn't?

I still think T I T S should be uncensored by now considering other related words are allowed, but i recognize that's more of a personal soapbox issue than a practical need.

(Yes, i know the titaniums story. That was ten years ago, it's not relevant anymore)

As Wing said, t-a-r-d is censored only when it's not preceded by other letters that aren't r-e, but the match ignores letters with diacritics. Inside any other word, the string is fine, petard, tardigrade, etc.

 

Is the "****" substitution not changed yet? I thought that one had already been removed as more trouble than it was worth as well. 


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?

a well deserved one, so we appreciate you calling in from the beach for this problem :)  

 

this presents the perfect opportunity to bring back Dom DeLuise from the old temp board to act as Temp Owner on your next vacation Kal...

 

<_< the poor guy's been distraught since he was out of work after the move to discord ...he's just been shuffling around the back allies of Mayhem asking people if they've seen any flying pyramids or stargates... its just sad. 

 

:) 

 

Hope the Vacation is otherwise going well though.
