@  Pennpenn : (27 April 2017 - 03:23 AM)

Hard G. I don't give a solitary shit what the creators call it, the first word in the acronym is "Graphical". I have no idea why they'd think any sane human could, would, or should pronounce it any other way.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 April 2017 - 03:13 AM)

I acknowledge what the creators say, but whether I remember to use their pronunciation or not is hit or miss. Heck, I think I usually think of it in my head as "gee-i-ef", in parallel to "JPG" and "PNG".

@  Waspinator : (27 April 2017 - 02:50 AM)

Let's heat things up: what are everyone's opinions on how GIF should be pronounced?

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 11:11 PM)

But I will say that a lot of fandom forums are generally more tolerable nowadays because most belligerent types stick to Facebook groups

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 11:09 PM)

I do like their hard no-politics rule. Now that I do the occasional freelance writing for some local politics and I like zero percent of it my hobby space now. But holy cow, do they replace it with neck beard drama.

@  LordGigaIce : (26 April 2017 - 10:30 PM)

like Noideaforaname I posted on TFW for a while. I came here after I got harassed for daring to suggest that Play With This Too was run by unoriginal hacks, and yeah. This place so much more preferable.

The terrible secret of the Allspark: We all have this twisted fetish for rational thought processes

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:13 PM)

Not everyone likes everything, and people aren't blind to shortfalls or annoyances resulting from constraints of how the brand is handled. We make many a joke out of these things. But it's a rare thing when entitlement replaces logic on here, where that seems to be poster raison d'etre everywhere else.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:11 PM)

It's utterly weird how these here boards seem so impervious an oasis when it comes to that depth of idiocy. Worshipping 3p and demanding the official companies "step it up" and stop being so lazy? Insisting the movies be done THEIR way, crapping on every single thing revealed about the films or toyline, then whining that they can't find (insert hot movie to here) or the official release of a movie figure doesn't capture the look in the film they hated? Etc

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:09 PM)

It's not even a "brand pissing contest" or "board loyalty" thing, not least due to the fact that those don't really even happen here all that much. I'm just happy to be with levelheaded people who've outgrown the usual fan dumb tropes. You can have a civilized conversation here and people don't shit on things only to hide behind "but but but to each their own right?" when their myopic BS is challenged.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:07 PM)

With each time nonsense like this flares up on tfw or on local discussion venues (and it does quite a bit) I'm just reminded of why I've essentially been allspark bound for the last... Fifteen or so years.

@  Noideaforaname : (26 April 2017 - 10:07 PM)

On the plus side, tho, TFW has "appreciation threads" for practically everything, even stuff like Kre-O and PCC. And their toy database is quite handy.

@  Noideaforaname : (26 April 2017 - 10:03 PM)

I've been happily posting on TFW for years. Then, after being *here* for a few months, I look back and wonder how the hell I even bothered with it. I mean, my ignore list had hundreds of people on it. Literally HUNDREDS of ignored people. I even showed off said gargantuan list once (with a small thumbnail that you couldn't read any of the names on, mind you). That... that really should have been a warning sign, I suppose...

@  WorkbenchManiac : (26 April 2017 - 08:03 PM)

Thanks, I enjoyed reading the nerdrage. I should hang out over there more often.

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 07:07 PM)

I mean, Reveal Your Shield. That gets complained about too.

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 07:04 PM)

One of the reveal the shield news threads at TFW has movie fans and G1 fans arguing over who has it worse

@  WorkbenchManiac : (26 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

You got me awfully curious. What thread ware we talking about?

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 02:17 PM)

That was a quality read. Both sides of that thread's argument went pretty crazy.

@  Diecast : (26 April 2017 - 02:04 PM)

For the lack if a better word, it baffles me when someone starts a discussion somewhere that's like "Does anyone else not like the movies?"

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 April 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Careful, it might have something to say about that.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 12:13 PM)

I'm gonna have to check your opinion out real good to make sure.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 April 2017 - 11:55 AM)

Oppinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, but mine is better so shut up.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

To clarify on point 1 since I was typing early in the morning again, "you must hate exactly what I hate" and "you msut like exactly what I like" aren't actually the same statement but they're the same thought process which is "my opinions are objective facts." If you see someone espousing one, they're probably thinking the other, too.

@  lastmaximal : (26 April 2017 - 10:57 AM)

... what.

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Andrusi, I imagine to some people online, there isn't that much of a world of difference, at least going by the venom they post; although not at RiD specifically.

@  unluckiness : (26 April 2017 - 08:55 AM)

The scale of liking and hating is an interval one so you can not like something but not hate it. Pretty sure there's apathy and dislike in between there at least.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And humans are perfectly capable of hating things in unison while being divided on liking.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:34 AM)

On the other hand, there's a world of difference between "I hate RID" and "I hate Nazis."

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:27 AM)

On one hand, "hating what I hate" IS "liking what I like." One of those cultures can't be worse than the other because they're literally the same culture.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 April 2017 - 07:26 AM)

I think that comparison is both an oversimplification AND a meaningless distinction.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2017 - 07:16 AM)

That's the internet effect. Distance and anonimity make for easy and consequence-less extremism.

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I think the aggressive "How dare you not hate exactly what I hate" culture online is worse than the aggressive "How dare you not like exactly what I like" culture.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 06:19 AM)

And now that song/scene and its many many parodies are running through my head.

@  unluckiness : (26 April 2017 - 06:18 AM)

Patrick Swayze didnt!

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 05:58 AM)

lol. As long as they knock first.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:57 AM)

Or as ghosts. I guess ghosts would be acceptable.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:57 AM)

For now, I'd just find some small comfort in knowing those who have passed actually are in some sort of better place.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:56 AM)

I'd find comfort in knowing that one way or another, that suffering would eventually end and a new, potentially happier beginning awaits.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 05:54 AM)

@LBD At the same time, I can't imagine wanting to stay in even a happy afterlife when fleshies are still suffering.

@  2017 : (26 April 2017 - 05:49 AM)

Celebrating and welcoming death just gives them more ideological hoops to justify killing others. So yeah, no thanks.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:48 AM)

The idea of death doesn't bother me so much as no longer existing.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 05:48 AM)

at the very least, my body will feed the grass which feeds the antelope which feeds the lio- ....wait

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:47 AM)

Yeah, that's kind of the thing.

@  MEDdMI : (26 April 2017 - 05:47 AM)

Some cultures celebrate/welcome death (of course, those also have some form of afterlife)

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2017 - 05:45 AM)

You shouldn't be. What with having absolutely no knowledge or control over it.

@  2017 : (26 April 2017 - 05:45 AM)

Death is scary, which is why we either spend our lives avoiding the subject or staying up late overthinking it.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 April 2017 - 05:44 AM)

"Never did want to live forever." I'm more bothered about what -- if anything -- is next.

I have a feeling it will be less an injury, as RD has been shown to not suffer those all that easily, and more likely a virus of some sort. Then again, considering how in that teaser her mental image of herself had a bandaged wing it could very well be a wing injury.

They have been consistent in showing her ability to break things by crashing into them though, so it will probably be something completely off the wall that hurts her.

No, Molestia has a single-color pale pink mane. Deliberate choice on the part of the artist, to help distinguish her.

Also, maybe Dashie had some Baked Bads.

If it's just one book, then it may be a volume of several short stories and/or fairy tales. I doubt the writer would be satisfied with just parodying one thing throughout the whole episode. As good as Indiana Jones is, there's a lot of other potential candidates out there. That particular scene out of Raiders of the Lost Ark is a popular one for parody; The Simpsons is just one other series that's done it.

I liked that ep, though the second half was far superior to the first half. The first half could have easily been condensed, seeing as it was some pretty predictable Indiana Jones homages. It got a lot more interesting once Rainbow Dash was reduced to petty theft!

Also I loved Twilight's line at the end "Well I'm glad that's what this is about!" in relation to Dash turning up on her doorstep being chased by doctors and wearing a burglar's outfit :v What else could she have been up to? icon-arcee.gif

I gotta say that I like this one.
Notes:
Bored Dash montage - great.
Gotta love a good Indiana Jones parody.
Tigers, Panthers, Lynx, and Leopards don't belong together. But this IS a book of pulp adventure, so...
Ceiling Gators are best trap ever.
"Forget it, I'm just going to grab the idol."
Rainbow reading all night under the covers with a flashlight lantern (nice touch with the fireflies). Hands up if you've done that!
Scenes with Dash trying to get rid of her friends are okay... but the adventure scenes are better.
However, Cloudsdale Battleship is going to have a ruleset before the day is out, I'm sure of that.
I'm told that the villain is an Ahuizotl from Aztec mythology, accurate down to the nose-eyes and tail-hand.
I gotta love the Doc. A case of lazyitus indeed! We need a name for him, stat!
Ninja Dash is a great scene. I love how she's essentially acting out the book. Speaking of which...
Dash: Vine swing across the river!
Others: Use the bridge!
Is the barking pony related to Screwball any? I guess she got out of the Mental ward. I hereby dub her Loose Screw.
Decent moral, not heavy handed, and not essential, so no time wasted on this.
I believe this is the first time we've seen the inside of Dash's house?

Still wish there was a Reading Rainbow parody song. Oh well, can't win them all.

Solid episode, would watch again.

A new story updating Mondays.

Another good episode I thought. Wasn't my favourite but it was still enjoyable.

So how long before we get a load of fan fiction based on Daring Do?

Let's just stop this before this turns into an argument. I still like Loose Screw the best

A new story updating Mondays.

Considering that RBD deals pretty easily with crashing into just about everything, from libraries all the way up to barns at mach 1+x, I think it's a good thing her crash in this episode wasn't shown.

Must've been one hell of a crash.

Oh no! I didn't like it too much! I can totally relate to Dash staying up late to read and loving a story to bits but, well, I suppose it's just that the Daring Do book wouldn't be the kind of book that would do that for me. (she should have gone hand to hand with that creeeeeepy monster. I thought for sure Daring have a physical confrontation with him since he was such a uniquely designed new character. But she didn't even get to kick him.)

Wouldn't not sleeping at all affect her healing? I was expecting the Doc to notice and scold Dash that she's sabotaging herself. But, yeah, plot.

BTW, if kids don't know Indiana Jones anymore, at least they can use Tomb Raider as their adventure frame of reference.

I was staring at Daring and I kept thinking she was Dash and Twilight mashed together. Who voiced Daring anyhow?

"I'm an egghead." Loved that but I wonder if another term could have been used. I'm glad it wasn't nerd though. Nerds are cool already.

Ep was ok. I miss Fluttershy.
