Many of us "veterans" tried to help out, but we got pelted with crap from people who just wanted to shill their own **** and not give back to the group, something against the principles of the FF.

That's a good example of why the Customs area at Scum's so goddam disappointing.

A lot of  "Hey, that is great!" posts and that's it.  Not that one-line posts that took 0 thought are uncommon in general over yonder, but it was in the customizing area where it became downright irritating.

There's a handful of guys who only want to hear "hey, that's great", and that's it.  They're the guys that if you do offer criticism constructively they don't reply to you at all because that's not what they're there to do.  They often don't go in-depth in explaining how they created something either.  Gotta love that kind of personality.   ::)

The whole thing of just praising people's work without ever talking about it just blew so hard though, and then some people even getting "offended" when you gave opinions on it that weren't solid praise...  I think it's just that people either didn't want to be offensive and were shy about criticism or they were just more post-padders (who'da thunk that huh?), so the whole thing just fell apart.

FFURG is a place for learning though...  Plus it's nice to just see customizers controlling their forum.  I hated that Philip ran the goddam Listserver when it was up and active even because he did NOTHING to curb off-topic traffic and the like.  I absolutely hated that (and it's that very inactivity that killed the old listserver as well...  It's that same blind eye he turns to the Forums at Scum.  He doesn't give a **** so he doesn't put forth effort on these projects of his).

The Email Server, in its death throws, was the biggest cluster**** on the internet if you can imagine that.  It degenerated into pretty much a place for people to talk about Star Wars (anything and everything) and clog your email box...  You also had the obligatory bafoon sending SPAM or chain letters and such to the list too...  I like that FFURG controls 1000+ member forum that holds something true to the old list server's intent, and that Philip has nothing to do with as far as the way it is run.  It's run by customizers, as it should be.

No, that's the war refit one right?  I'm talking about Adm. Riker's Enterprise from "All Good Things..."

I've had the good fortune to have real and fake bounce off my head...  Maybe I'm greedy but I'd take them all, know what I mean?

I thought the AOTC was the same as the ROTS?

OK so the ship from TOS which saw actual refits was offed in in Search For Spock...  Then the A came in, but didn't have a sequence showing it get destroyed?  And then the B's the one they commissioned at the opening of Generations in the prologue.  The C's only seen in TNG's one episode, and then of course the D throughout, and then the E in First Contact...  Dunno what the tri-nacelled one's designation was in the final episode of TNG though, but that's another.

I'm really fascinated by this. :)  Sorry for the off-topic Star Trek nerdiness Jay and I just had.

I know when I was young, GIJ won out over Star Wars in 1982 (with me anyway) because GIJ was just a better toy...  He was poseable, though at the time that term really didn't pop into my mind...  Like my girl's kids, he "moved" I guess was what I was thinking.

What I remember buying vintage SW figures for was to give their cool coat or pistol to the GIJ I liked the best, haha.

The boys now want AT-RT drivers and a Clone Evolutions set after watching me putz on the computer without me knowing.   ::)  I can't find those FOR MYSELF.   >:(  Ugh.

I wonder what kind of performance you can expect out of those?  I'd imagine comparable...  Should be interesting to see.

Thanks sfg

I hope you're in good spirits right now Shannon...  Was just thinking about how you're feeling the other day, as was my gf.  We were talking about some friends we have who are not up-to-snuff right now...  You'll be ok though I'm sure, just keep the good energy going!

Well, Jesse and Chewie have both tried to get me over here so, here I am.   :P

With RS down for a while I'll need to get my fix somewhere and if I can do that without endless posts of crap in the modern sections I may just stay!


Holy ****, you're here Eric! :)

Big E's a memeber of the PSWCS, and a buddy of mine.  Also was my line buddy at Celebration 3 (along with Jeff and Jason), where I was pretty much flew solo during the event for 90% of my time at it.  Me and E cashed in our badges for our store goodies together.

Good times man!  You gotta get out to Western PA sometime bud.  Glad to have you aboard finally.


If anything we've worked against increases in traffic at our site considering we like to "weed out" the people who are here to just be peckerheads.  And they do show up...  Some of them are the people that some of us have had issues with elsewhere, some are just post-padding morons that fit in better at Rebelscum since there's many of their ilk to compete with...  But either way we don't just let them play their game, they get das boot.  Sure they could increase traffic, but why let them drag our home down?  **** that, and **** them.


Creature sucks.  Sorry Bill.  You've known this.

Nice score on the Japanese figures Vator...  Wish I could find them myself.  Can you post any pictures or give some reviews?

I wish 21st would get over itself with these asinine headsculpts they keep doing though.  You get liek 2 neutral guys then a buncha screaming guys.  Looks like half the group is in a Banzai charge by the pics I've seen.  :-\

So TOS one and TMP one were the same?  Was TMP one the 1701-A or was it just 1701?  I wasn't into TOS enough to remember (and TMP doesn't tickle my pickle much either...  never liked it much).

And a hardy Nerd Counter!

I don't think the Enterprise was a refit...  at least not all the time.  Most of those (if not all) were completely new ships that carried the same designating number and their own letter.  For instance the C was destroyed defending a Klingon Outpost...  The B I forget what happened to it.  The A was destroyed by Kirk to prevent it being taken over.

Revenge of the Sith / Re: TRU Exclusive Clones!
« on: August 17, 2005, 11:57 PM »
Just as soon Hasbro and TRU worked on something else.  Take the gamble it'd maybe be better, as I know pre-posed figures in 3-packs are about as interesting as watching paint dry in my book.

I'd sooner see #6's repainted, even though I'd sooner see #41's repainted over the #6.  But I'd take #6 if it was all they could do, ya know?  Or I'd simply wait till a basic repaint of it got put out, but anything is better than the 3-pack.
