A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

Or do a crossover where you team up with McDonaldzilla.

Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

That's why we're going to bomb the Breach.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:58 PM)

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

One bite is all it takes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 January 2017 - 02:33 PM)

I've found that subway's food tends to be...

@  Benbot : (18 January 2017 - 02:13 PM)

I've only had it once, but that was because I forgot to disable adblock on my tablet. Haven't had it otherwise.

@  Jalaguy : (18 January 2017 - 03:52 AM)

I only ever got it once, on the one PC, for whatever reason...

@  Noideaforaname : (17 January 2017 - 09:42 PM)

Not getting the Adblocker message anymore.

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:54 PM)

Starting now you shouldn't be getting the message any further

@  Kalidor : (17 January 2017 - 05:53 PM)

Did you still get it? It should be removed now

@  Telly : (17 January 2017 - 03:14 PM)

i probly shouldnt have said that...

Hey everybody!

To celebrate Botcon coming this week, the Allspark Forums have been rebranded with a Botcon-themed skin! Watch out for all our Botcon coverage in the coming days. A BUNCH of staff are going to be there, including me!

I had a lot of fun working this up, and I hope it gets everyone in the Botcon mood.

For those who have never changed your skin, it should have changed automatically. For those who have, you will probably have to reset manually.

--Daytonus

P.S. If you prefer to go back to the tried-and-true, the skin selector is at the bottom of the forums.

I do not care for how the textured elements interact with the flat colored cells. the yellow/black stripes are fine though.
And that light purple really pops out - which is something text should do, not only slightly important bonus data.
Woooo!

"MY EYES!"

Honestly though, this is a great skin and quite a surprise when I was looking through the forums. Always great to see the effort that the staff puts into the site and forum.

Oh, huh, this is rather nice. Close enough to the purple to seem familiar, thankfully not as much of a contrast as Classic Gears.

Didn't switch automatically for me though, odd.

I don't understand what these...unusual colors and accents have to do with Botcon.

They're Stunticon themed.

"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."

Thank you both! It's a bit eye-searing, but by design. Plus, everytime I see the caution stripes next to the fuschia, I go "Thrust, overdrive!"

We'll keep it as long as we are using this iteration of the forum software. After that, I plan on making a skin that would use some of these elements.

Those are understandable and valid critiques. Some of them I don't agree with, but others are worth considering. Thanks for checking it out!

Yeah, I just hit refresh, and had to check my calender at first. icon-fire.gif

Then I scrolled up and saw the Botcon coverage banner and understood, and I'm getting used to it.

Yeah, for those folks who need some more chilled-out colors, don't worry, I'm not offended. I basically designed the site that I would want to go to, which I assumed would be an audience of me and a dozen other blind people. icon-fire.gif
