    I don't know if it's just me, but I find this a little annoying.

    Does it annoy anyone else how on many sites (Deviantart, FanFiction, etc.) people spell Airachnid's name "Arachnid?" For example, if you were to type "Airachnid" on Devinatart you would get some results, while if you spelled it "Arachnid" you actually got many more. More results for spelling the name wrong, and that's NOT including the pics you would have gotten for spelling it right.

    Once again, may not be that important, but it really "bugs" me.

    EDIT: I forgot to mention about not refering to the fortress from BW, and how results may not refer to the character at all, but I'm sure everyone knows what I meant.

    I can't really blame anyone when the show pronounces it "Arachnid." If it wasn't for hanging out on sites like this one, I wouldn't even know it was spelled the goofy way.

    The "i" is so close to the "A" and "r" it's easy to think it's not there and there's just dust or a stray pixel on the screen.

    I know, right...

    Why would you go on Deviantart lookign for TF art?

    That stuff is freaking horrible, so many 11 year old TFA fangirls clogged the site with shitty fanart because they thought they could copy Derrick Wyatt's simplistic art style. Even worse is that some of them think they can draw TFP style too, which is a much harder to get right than TFA, which makes the fanart even more horrible.

    Go on Pixiv and search for transformers in japanese, harder to do, but the fan art there is MUUUCH better.

    Pretty much.

    Also about the fanart stuff, it's really not "all" that bad. We've just gotta sift through it for what we enjoy looking at, just like any other sort of porn.

    Yeah, this. My trick is to always check artist's favorites...most of the art people fave is way better than what they can draw themselves. :wink:
