Yay! I should get my package from BBTS today!

@  Arazyr : (22 January 2018 - 10:50 AM)

Okay, now I get the snake thing. Thanks for the Pokemon reference. It was a bit after my time... 8^)

This is a Transformers fansite. Do you like big bots and you cannot lie?

Onyx is a stone. Onix is a rock snake. Do you even Pokemon, bro?

@  Telly : (22 January 2018 - 02:44 AM)

could be a rock made of snakes. we just dont know!

@  Foffy : (22 January 2018 - 02:15 AM)

He is a snake made of rock, though

@  Jetstream C-18 : (21 January 2018 - 08:56 PM)

No, Onyx is a snake.

@  Arazyr : (21 January 2018 - 01:12 PM)

Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

Thought I'd throw up a thread here for us to hi-light major revisions, or additions to the Transformers wiki -- Tfwiki.net.

Wikis already have a pages that recount ALL changes to them. But they can be a little bit hard to follow. Especially for casual observers, since they don't really differentiate well between major changes that are worth reading, and minor typographical corrections.

Basically the idea here is that if someone makes a major new page -- or a major revamp of an old page -- they could throw it up here for the general public to peruse. Not only that but to provide a forum for people to discuss changes (you CAN also do it on the wiki... but I'm thinking more, "Wow! Do you see what they did there?" type discussion, than actual page-construction mechanics), and to generally talk about how awesome our fan community is.

Also hoping a thread like this could get people excited about editting in general -- and about seeing how much there still is to do on the TF wikis.

While I'm biased towards Tfwiki.net, I wouldn't discourage links to other wikis. Well, I would -- but I probably shouldn't because the Allspark isn't directly affiliated with either.

Anyway... hope this thread is in the right place.

To get things kicked off here's my first contribution to the newly moved Wiki.

DEATH'S HEAD'S PAGE
Link
Death's Head
Revision/Addition
Basically this page was pretty terrible before -- I completely re-wrote it from scratch (Well more or less) to compensate for DH sort of overlapping TF in a strange way that's unique to his character... and to put the whole thing into Death's Head's voice. Also uploaded and added a bunch of pics of Death's Head from various artists. Check it out and tell me whatcha think, guys.

I like it being in the style of his speech. However, I don't think it works being in "first person". It just feels a bit off to me, especially when other articles (Like, say, Wheelie) do follow the particular speech patterns of the character without writing it as if the character was composing their own article.

Other than that, I do like it. Feels like there's a bit more meat to the article.

A few months back I went and did an episode synopsis for the Armada ep "Tactician."

Problem is, I can't find the part of the site where you are actually supposed to register in order to make edits.

If not, that may be a worthwhile thing to do.

We're not a collector's guide, we're an encyclopedia.

There are external links on the Knockoff article where you can find the information you seek, though.

That's about as close as the wiki will probably get, as we avoid articles on unofficial product.

Since I seem to be the only person on the planet who owns every issue of the Battle Beasts comic book, I added the longest and most thorough series description to be found anywhere on the Internet (including Wikipedia and every single BB fan site that listed on Google).

Granted it's still at the "blurb" stage, but when I get the time there will be an issue-by-issue breakdown. EXCLUSIVE CONTENT, baby, mwahaha!

Basic wiki coding:

Internal links:
[[Optimus Prime (G1)]] links to "Optimus Prime (G1)", and displays "Optimus Prime (G1)"
[[Optimus Prime (G1)|truck]] links to "Optimus Prime (G1)", and displays "truck"
[[Optimus Prime (G1)|]] links to "Optimus Prime (G1)", and displays "Optimus Prime"

Headings:
=heading text= gives a 1st level heading.
==heading text== gives a 2nd level heading. for 3rd level, use three = sighs.

''text'' displays text
'''text''' displays text

A ":" is an indent, and a "*" is a bullet point

Thanks.

I got the internal links fixed, and someone set up the "clean-up" tag and got it listed on the other pages.



You'd think that with the entire series out on DVD someone other than me would be trying to flesh out the episode summaries.

Completed the guide for the Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers manga. Now the storylinks in Murdered puppy finally work!

I had an especially amusing time writing up the article for issue #7 and Wrist-communicator, trying to figure out an in-canon reason that Makoto would have a device that allows him to communicate with and summon Galvatron before Galvatron even existed.

Thanks to Hirofumi Ichikawa's retcons, all likelihood points to Makoto's wrist-communicator being a representation of Galvatron II. That means that a small Japanese boy had the power to communicate with and summon back-up from the most out-of-his mind psychotically insane Transformer in the entire multiverse.

So much story potential.

I once put in the Japanese titles to the Cybertron episode list long before the move but that got yanked for some reason. If Car Robots/RiD and Superlink/Energon has their Japanese titles, then why were the GF titles pulled? Because of the episode ordering issue? icon-depth.gif Or because of fans that aren't enthusiastic with the UT?

I was wondering, is information printed in the IDW and Dreamwave MTMTE and Sourcebooks official for the Wiki then? For instance, the way MTMTE or the Beast Wars Sourcebook calls certain characters Triple Changers.

Also, there are two commercials for G2 Dreadwing, one has him calling himself "Triple Changing Dreadwing" and the other has the announcer saying "Dreadwing is a Triple Changer!" Do Commercials count as official, or is that too removed from the fiction?



Any chance of the Wiki actually denoting the lyrics of the G2 Transformers rap songs? You know, stuff like Aerialbots vs. Combaticons song?
