    In general when discussing transformers I don't enjoy reading list. When you click on a thread and see a list of names, does that compel you to read on or do you go looking for another topic?

    Also how do you feel about those one answer responses to your post or replies, I see a short retort and skip it now. I don't know why but I'm pretty sure that when the reply is "this, that, QFT" I keep skimming down until I see a sentence.

    Lastly how do you feel about polls in the forums? This I think is cool for getting the pulse of a tiny bit of the fandom at that time.

    I don't mind any of those things. I am getting a little tired of the "a somewhat celebrity dies" omg post, but tis the nature of the fourm.

    Joe I was trying to start a discussion about the List type threads, like I posted when you see one do you read all those names? And the reply is a new list of names. This seems silly I suppose but this is the general discussion is it not?

    Maybe my detractors are correct and my thread license should be revoked, lol.

    Any random title. You click on it, and below is what you see.

    Optimus Prime
    Megatron
    Soundwave
    Starscream
    Jazz

    And the next several post look the same. Keep in mind this is nothing more than a bit of small talk in the wee small hours, not a rant or a protest a simple attempt to start a conversation.

    Ebay:
    I stop reading the names in the Sale forum I'll look for pics first, then if they don't have any I'll skim the lists I need figures in to see if there's something I need, then I'll read the whole list to make sure there's not something I missed but only if I spotted some I want. If it's something like the names of TFs to appear in the movie, or the show, then I'll read it through. If it's stupid crap I just don't bother.

    Complaining posts.
    Advertising other websites.
    Drunk posting.
    Fanboy bating.
    Chief.
    Pal.
    Bro.
    Passive-aggressiveness.
    Etc.

















    I hate when people make threads in the GD complaining about stuff on other parts of the site. Yeah, there's irritating stuff on here at times and people don't always follow the rules, you get over it though.

    Or make fun of those people in their own threads.


    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE. :D

    ^ Perfect end to a thread that could only devolve further.
