@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

Surprisingly, out of the 3 premieres we've had so far, this one has me most interested in the year to come.

 

Appreciate them bringing in Radu's coffee shop from the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern books.

 

Shouldn't Cody Rhodes' character be held in a metahuman prison?  Obviously, the real reason why he's there is because Amell wanted to do his friend a favor, but it seems a little unlikely that the character would be put there, or could be held there for long.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

I didn't really catch on to that until I read the talkbacks.  That scene was so dark, plus I'm so used to Roy's eerily-smooth face.  This rougher look definitely suits him though.

 

I keep going back and forth on whether Roy is the new Green Arrow.  GA had Roy's habit of doing unnecessary parkour in the middle of battle, but I think that's meant to mislead us.

While I'll be a bit sad to see Arrow end but I think its about time, really, I think the show kind of lost its way in season 6 when they no longer had Oilver's back story and the season stories began to drag out and the villians aren't that great, the first four were desent, the fifth ok, I guess but he was bit more forgettable, the sixth, main villian, he just struck me as a bit of a moron or a hopeless cause, he built up to be someone who meant to be cunning and smart, yet, I just feel he lacks something to really make him really great, I think its what the actor brings to the role, he feels a bit standard bad guy, it might be just me on that! At least we can say Arrow had a good run with 8 seasons and two spin off series set in the same Universe, even if one is about travelling through time!

Based on comments made in interviews, it's been very clear that Stephen Amell was going to be done with the show after season 8.  I was wondering if they were going to try to keep it going with Green Arrow 2, but recent events in-universe made that very unlikely even before this news came along.  It's still sad news though, especially when watching Amell get choked up on Facebook Live.

 

Judging from the shortened season, it looks like Arrow will bow out shortly after Crisis, and Batwoman will come in as a midseason replacement.

CWerse would be a good name for it. I wouldn't be surprised to see the CWerse start to get cancelled as soon as the contracts run out. I mean, DC is pushing their own streaming service and all, so it would make sense to push the shows there.

It'll always be the Arrowverse to me.

I think even a smaller broadcast network like the CW can still attract a larger audience than a young streaming service at this point. The bigger danger to the Arrowverse that I see is its ability to hold on to its leads.

Melissa Benoist definitely has opportunities beyond Supergirl, I seriously doubt that she'll stay for 8 years. Grant Gustin doesn't seem to have as many outside projects, but after Amell, he's been there the longest, so I feel it's only a matter of time before he's done.

As an ensemble show, I think Legends can weather cast departures better than the other shows, but I feel its high costs and low ratings will cause it to end sooner rather than later.

It's been said that season 5 of Supergirl may be it's last (we are currently on season 4).  The rumor says that the ratings aren't very good and DC is considering making a Supergirl movie (with their whole not having more than one representation thing that would give them extra incentive to end the TV series).

As of now Flash seems to be the only show that still feels fun. Arrow has run it's course, and Supergirl is running it's politcal agenda much too strongly the last few seasons. Legends feels like it's been an afterthought since it was created. While still fun it's still clearly the Arrowverses b-team effort. Of course it sounds like Cisco is leaving the Flash after this season too, so there goes a good part of my favorite cast members there.
