    the fans

    I mean really the fans

    I was born in 1991 so I didnt grow up with the G1 series.
    Also Ive been a die hard fan ever since.
    During 2007 the TF movie came out
    and I saw the good and the bad from that movie but mostly good.
    two years later I saw TF2 and thought it was one of the best movie Ive ever seen but then the fans,THE HARDCORE FANS start talking crap about the movie!!
    and yes I know there was things in the movie that they could have done better.

    then I did some research and found out that TF fans have been hating transformers since 1986
    What the fuck

    the fans of transformers have officially ruined transformers for me
    and I expect for others as well

    G1 isnt the only thing out there that TF fans can enjoy

    whats worse is that I believed that I wasnt alone
    that there was more TF fan out there but apparently I was wrong

    also the bad comments are getting more recognition

    so feel free to comment

    Cool story, bro. I hope that I'm doing my part to ruin Transformers for you.

    Though if you hate the fans so much why come to a fan site and ask them questions.

    So you can hate more? Eh, fuel to the fire I guess.

    But you know, there is a different between "talking crap" about something and constructive criticism.

    Welcome and I know. Its wierd. I'm just one of the many that will sympathise or offer advice. You'll find many people here are good to know.
    Still, its the same with any 'fan' forum I've been on. The Doctor Who forum was the same. I joined only to find the classic series I am such an admirer of gets flamed all the time, stories I love are gutted, etc.
    It was disheartening and I felt like a fool for liking them, so I know where you're coming from. I just learned to not let it get to me and just love what I love.

    Personally, I grew up with G1 and as I have mentioned no end of times here, it had a spark that grabbed me. If I'd been born later, maybe that spark could have happened during Beast Wars? Probably.
    I like ROTF too, its not G1, but I'm not going to pretend to hate it.
    On the surface it may seem things are as you said. You have to get into the forums, whip around the subjects and threads and form a deeper conclusion.
    Sure, there are fanboys that will spit at you for mentioning 'Armada', 'G1' or slagging the films, but ignorance is bliss.
    I'm not saying I don't get defensive, sure I do, but most of the time I just think twice and ignore it.
    We are all TF fans, G1, Animated, Armada or Beast Wars. Wether we like the films or not and wether we share the same socks or not...wait, did I say that aloud..?

    ...point is, when it comes to being a fan of anything, just take what you want and leave the rest. Don't feel obliged to like or dislike things based on other people's opinions.
    Don't know what more I can say really. Its all just for fun and connecting with like minded TF fans, remember that as the basis. Its in your court.

    Hey man don't let others ruin what you like. I'm with you, I thought TF2 was fantastic. Seen it 4 times so far. And so do millions of others. You have to understand that these boards will always be filled with those who knock everything. It's not just a TF thing, it's on every board of any topic on Earth...
    Music, sports, cars, electronics..you name it.
    These people have no one to complain to in real life so they go to their respected forums and whine to each other. It's their right to do so and even disillusioned nerds deserve friends :) 
    On the whole these types of forums will always contain more "negative" users than "positive" users. Users who deem themselves "experts" on the subject matter and if you don't agree with them you're a complete idiot, or specifically to this forum, "NOT A REAL TF FAN".
    Just how it goes my man. Don't let it keep you down!

    How am I fucking up Transformers more than Hasbro? Please explain that to me, cause you're the one that came in here firing insults off to fans and blaming them for ruining the franchise for you. I'm sorry that everyone doesn't agree with you about the movie, but it's no reason to start ignorant threads.

    What, you mean people that reply to your thread with sarcasm? Welcome to the internet, kid. You're gonna find sarcastic remarks when you post a topic as tired and worn out as the one you started. No one can ruin a hobby for you, except for you (and maybe a super hot girlfriend). Maybe, I should post a thread about how people like you ruin the hobby for me...oh wait, you don't ruin the hobby for me. :crazy:

    You're new, but that definitely doesn't describe smkspy. At least in my opinion.

    As others have pointed out, negative comments are just part of being in a fandom.

    It reminds me of customer service a lot. If you eat at a restauraunt and its good, how many people do you tell? Maybe one? Two? but if you eat at a restauraunt and it sucks how many people do you tell? 10.
