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.

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...

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

@  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)

They're both better than the Primus origin.

The Allspark sucks. I much prefer the quintessons origin.

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.

@  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)

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.

@  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

That Earth-hopping fight was unexpected and the kind of stuff I love this show for. Also, I had qualms about Julian joining the team, but he was on fire this episode.

Waiting for one last shoe to drop regarding H.R., as they seemed to be implying he did something much worse than multiversal travel at some point.

Is there any particular reason why they can't keep vibing forward to Iris's death to see if their efforts are having an effect on anything?

HR, I seriously doult he has stopped broadcasting his novel into the multiverse.

 

The vive brawl was ok I guess, it was a little amusing to see them crashland on the coffee table in Supergirl world.

Who knows, maybe they'll kill off Earth 1 Caitlin completely and have her return next season as a Caitlin from say the Earth Supergirl is from, they did that with Dr Wells, granted that was also the Reverse Flash attempting to get his powers back, thou I didn't really like how they killed him off in season 1 finally, or at least the aftermath because what happened should of really shook up the status quo, Zoom's demise was much better, thou I think the door is open for him to return one day in some form or another. The current central villian, I'm not majorly keen on currently because its all CGI and that is rather boring for a major villian to be unless they have some real talent and thought in their creation, thou that merely my view.

I was thinking that kind of thing, too. Certainly she's entitled to move on, but in the context of a fictional show like this, it seems like they're turning her into "brainy potential love interest (with Killer superpowers)." Just doesn't sit well somehow.

I don't feel like Caitlin is the potential love interest, it's more that they've never really known what to do with her and so she's the one getting lots of romance plots so the writers can claim they are actually doing stuff with her character.

 

Some serious stupid this ep. How about, instead of trying to teach Wally phasing by having him run full speed into a wall, maybe you could teach him the hand phase first?

 

I was thinking since they have the whole course upstairs for him to run through why not set up some thin paper walls or something if they really wanted to go for the full-on treatment? Not everything has to hurt, Barry.

 

I feel like they were trying to take that plot with Joe's girlfriend's daughter somewhere (not her obsession with Kid Flash, but her rubbing the West clan the wrong way in general) but then they forgot.

That's not a half-bad idea actually, but I don't get that vibe from how they've played it. Speaking specificallty about the romantic relationsghips, each time it seems like a clean reset with only a few token mentions of the previous relationship. It was particularly notable with Jay, where after pining over Robbie for a bit [her main character feature for what felt like quite a while] it was soon like nothing had happened.

 

I'm in the "doesn't sit well with me" camp, because it seems like such a waste of a good character and performer. I mean, CISCO moved on from being the one-note Nerd Reference Villain Renamer Guy (and while his recent angles have leaned on angst it's pretty justificable angst!), which I'm pleasantly surprised by. He seemed like the easier one to fall into a rut writing.

In the comics she's always been a scorned lover and that's why she's evil.

In the comics, she's the inspiration for the new Justice League Dark team, so they seem to have decided that they need to give Killer Frost a shot at redemption in the comics so as to make her fate less preordained in the show.
