    Ive been getting treated very rude by the admins, and Ive only been here a week. Second, why does the Deluxe movie Swindle a Scion Tc and not a Jeep?

    #1 - Maybe you've been acting up. They're not rude, just doing their job.
    #2 - It's not a Scion, it's a Chevy Cobalt. Also, IT'S NOT G1.

    1. When you break the rules, they can treat you however they want.

    2. They can make him whatever they want, they don't need to explain.

    He's listed under the movie toys on the hasbro site but he is colored like Cliffjumper and I think your right, he is a Cobalt. But, why??

    Like said before, it's NOT G1. He's a drone from the Prequel Movie comics, and is a character in the Movie Video Game. I personally love him they way he is. I won't be surprised if we get a blue-ish purple colored repaint of him called Shockwave. As for the mods comment. Everything the mods do has a good reasoning behind it. Beleive me, I've been down this road before. It's better off to just move on and get over it.

    Because they likely designed the mold and game character first, then picked any old TF name for keeping the trademark on it and if there's any other reason it's probably because Armada Swindle was also a red race car, so he'd be the one the younger fans remember.

    Also, I like how your thread subject is only halfway wrong.

    So where can these prequel novels be found?

    By the way, I havent been doing anything against the rules. What keeps happening is that I try to start a thread and it gets shoved or closed because Im either late in the topic or on the wrong topic.

    Like I said, I havent been violating the rules.

    I try to engage in a topic that has already been started by others but I get moved or closed because it seems as though Im late in the topic. If I wasnt keeping conversation clean, dont you think I would have put in some vulgar stuff by now?

    It's not a Scion TC, and it's not a Jeep because GM don't make Jeeps.

    Bumping old posts and posting topics in the wrong forums may not be against the rules, but it's bad etiquette. When you do stuff like that, the mods have to fix what you did, and when you repeatedly do it, they get annoyed with you.

    Moral of the story: don't bump old threads, and post new topics appropriately.

    They mean clean in terms of:
    - not having multiple threads discussing the same thing
    - not resurrecting threads that haven't been posted in for months
    - not putting threads in inappropriate locations (questions in news, reviews in the ebay forums, whichever)

    Think "tidy" rather than clean, if you must.

    If nobody keeps tabs on these sorts of things, we're be knee deep in "ZOMG LIEK MP-05!" threads and nobody could find what they actually want to post about. That's all.

    This is not the way to handle something like this, if you have an issue with moderation or administration of the forums it needs to be addressed in PM.

    From the rules:
    I know you aren't exactly mouthing off, but the piece holds true that if you have a problem with a decision a staff member has made it needs to be taken to PM.
