@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:15 AM)

I really enjoy the creative sub forums of TFW, though, like their kitbash and fan art forums. The creative forums have lots of talented, friendly people and is an active, supportive community.

@  wlg3 : (28 April 2017 - 01:13 AM)

Gotta agree with Evac... TFW has a lot of cool, talented people, but they're overwhelmingly outnumbered by unbearable neckbeards

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:20 PM)

I do enjoy the TFW podcast. and that subforum's usually very civil. It's the best place to actually talk about TFers there :D also the Radicons forum is ok if you just like looking at kitbash pr0n

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:18 PM)

There's some cool people on the site, thankfully. It's just the morons tend to outnumber them... Which is generally the rule on most forums thanks to the GIFT.

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:17 PM)

In all honesty, the better parts of the site are the non-TF parts.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

yeah, and their love of 3p is just...i don't get it.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

TFW can be... literal with the rules sometimes. Like, a discussion about favorite human characters gets LOCKED if you mention Agent Fowler because "all Prime discussion belongs in the RiD forums".

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Also, as far as TFW's No Politics goes...it's nice in theory but then you end up with the current IDW stories that lean HEAVILY into politics and religion. I've had more than a few lengthy posts exploring the parallels between the IDW Decepticon movement and various real world socialist movements deleted because it was technically "politics." So hug 'em. I really only visit there these days to poke around the podcast subforum.

@  LordGigaIce : (27 April 2017 - 09:45 PM)

My person canon is that the Quintessons created Cybertron as a factory to make the TFers as mechs, but they became self aware and they revolted. then Cybertronian society began to develop and the events of the revolt became mythologised as the stories of the Knights of Cyberton, the Thirteen, etc...real events that became the basis for religion, essentially.

Transformers believe they were created by <X>, others believe they were created by <Y> and/or <Z>. There are lots of theories, disagreements but ultimately nobody knows for sure.

Squid robits build machines. Machines decide they had enough of that and kicked the squid robits off the planet. Everything's pretty chill for a while until machines get mad for dumb reasons and break the planet. THE END

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 04:22 PM)

Primus created Cybertron and The Thirteen. Then later, the Quintessons come to the planet they call Seibertron and use Primus' power; the plasma energy chamber to forge military robots Destrons and consumer robots Cybertrons. The Cybertrons and Destrons rise up and drive the Quintessons away but are unable to live in peace with each other. And so the Cybertron population become the Autobot army and the Destrons become Decepticons, with the Autobots renaming their planet Cybertron. Far far later still, bacteria that was present on the asteroid Primus imprisoned himself within has evolved into organic life within Cybertron...

So, my Aunt has been working on our family tree at Ancestry.com and it turns out on my mother's side one our ancestors is Henry of Lancaster, the 3rd Earl of Lancaster who was of the House Plantagenet (as well as House Lancaster) which produced at total of 15 English Monarchs (3 directly from House Lancaster - Henry's the IV, V, and VI). Considering the modest occupations of my more immediate ancestors, needless to say I was quite surprised. And this is just part of my mother's side-we haven't even touch my father's side.

On a less positive but still historical note, we're also related to Sir Thomas Lucy who liked to persecute Catholics (including Shakespeare's family).

My mom's grandfather, being a well-versed man in history and literature as well, spent his spare time during the communism (where he, previously a public prosectutor of the state, had to work as a night guard, having been "B-listed" as an enemy of the state) putting together our family tree. He managed to trace the Andrassy name back to the time the hungarian tribes entered the Karpat-basin in 900 AD. On my father's side, I am of kraut (Swabisch) descent. And despite the name, I am not related to Andrassy Gyula, the famous politician - that's a different Andrassy family, though we are related to two famous hungarian poets, Kisfaludy Karoly and Sandor.

The heck you say. I am too. He's an ancestor of my Mom's.

And Pocahontas and John Rolfe are an ancestors of my Dad.

Edit - I asked my dad for details and he sent me all the names in my lineage to Pocahontas. He was my 8 greats grandmother. And today (or maybe yesterday) is her wedding anniversary.

He doesn't have details on Robert the Bruce because he hasn't tracked my mom's geneology. He just knows that her mother said so.

I get the distinct impression that ancestry.com is fluffing the output a bit to get more people to pay for it.

I'm pretty sure there's no royalty in my family blood. Maybe a few rebels, some soldiers, farmers and whores, but nothing as debase as royalty.

Oh my family history is about as sorid. On my dad's side, a guy with my last name just turned up in the Midwest in the mid-1800s with no birth certificate or proof of identity. We figure it's an assumed name. That's as far back as we can trace my dad's side.

On my mom's side, my Great-Great Grandfather was appearently a very well to do individual in Scotland when one night, he packed up his wife and children and sailed to the US without a penny to their names. We do wonder what happened there.

You'd be surprised at how much male nobility got around in the Dark Ages and Renaissance, it's not necessarily all 'inflation' by geneology websites. Sir Thomas de Moulton was a travelling companion to William the Conqueror in the mid 1000's, and my paternal ancestor, although there is still some uncertainty about some potential French origins of the surname (but no evidence of ancestry) also dating back to the mid 1000's.

Same Here!

The actual "Castle Finkenstein" lies in the Austria area. Probably not too likely I have any relation to the owners, as, from what I know, my Father's family from the area were all jewish back then, so it's much more likely they just lived near the Castle. But I still find it pretty cool.

Still, we should totally start a club exlusively for people who have a Castle that bares their name.

-ZacWilliam, knowa a lot less about my Mom's family, though I know they've got some Polish and French in there. Wish Ancestry.com was cheaper to sign up for as I'd love to dig into that side...

Geneology became my mom's obsession hobby a few years ago. Looking through what she's found has only confirmed what I've long suspected; no member of my family has ever done anything unusual, adventurous, or significant.

I'm descended from a long line of Hobbits.
