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.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:49 PM)

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.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 05:11 PM)

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...

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 03:35 PM)

But aside from the ending Trent and Siph made for them at FunPub, the 3H Wreckers comics kinda sucked.

That's what the 3H Wreckers comics kind of did, actually.

So, what? The maker of the makers kinda thing?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2017 - 02:55 PM)

My fanon is both the Quintesson and Primus origins. They're compatible.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I prefer the profile book/movie interpretation of the Quintessons, a race whose entire purpose is to capture and execute those who escape Unicron.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 02:03 PM)

I like the Quintesson origin partly because it's a twist on the robot revolution cliche, partly because of the irony of a people uniting against their own creators just to fall into endless civil war, and mostly because i just really like the Quintessons themselves.

@  Diecast : (27 April 2017 - 12:03 PM)

I preferred the Primus origin until it became the more common origin, fiction wise.

@  ▲ndrusi : (27 April 2017 - 11:08 AM)

Since the analogy to humans isn't perfect, it could also be interpreted as closer to "maternity ward."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I think the most unfortunately named Transformer in their society would probably be Hot Spot, which is like having a human named "Placenta."

@  Locoman : (27 April 2017 - 11:02 AM)

Confusing, I bet.

@  Noideaforaname : (27 April 2017 - 10:58 AM)

I wonder what everyday Transformer society is like where half the population are named after common objects and stuff...

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2017 - 10:53 AM)

Naturally occuring gears! (hey, if bugs can do it...)

@  Evac : (27 April 2017 - 10:00 AM)

They're both better than the Primus origin.

@  unluckiness : (27 April 2017 - 09:56 AM)

The Allspark sucks. I much prefer the quintessons origin.

@  Dracula : (27 April 2017 - 07:23 AM)

I hate the allspark! That's why it's been the only TF forum I've bothered with for almost 10 years!

@  Robowang : (27 April 2017 - 07:13 AM)

As much as I pick on us, that's a really big reason why I like it here too. Plus the traffic isn't so heavy that anything you post gets lost in five minutes.

@  Rycochet : (27 April 2017 - 06:00 AM)

The Allspark is one of the first Transformers sites I've been to where there's no weird hero worship of the staff or two or three staffers who are weirdly aggressive about certain transformers related topics and never fail to show it. This is probably the first site in my near two decades in the fandom I can post and not feel I'm a few steps away from falling afoul of some unwritten rule that will cause people to pile on, so yay Allspark.

@  lastmaximal : (27 April 2017 - 04:26 AM)

I'm really not surprised.

@  Nevermore : (27 April 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Well, the users over on TFW in return accuse the Allspark of being an elitist clique that ostracizes everyone who doesn't act like they do (i.e. civil), whereas TFW is more welcoming to everyone regardless of their views.

@  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.

@  Nutjob R/T : (26 April 2017 - 10:15 PM)

And you're turning us on

@  Nutjob R/T : (26 April 2017 - 10:15 PM)

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

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.

So, you hate fan service, but love fan disservice? Calling the pony Yamino is a personal attack and definitely an insult.

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.
