Unlikely but surprisingly well-researched Transformers reference Edit

Are you familiar with a recent Gainax anime series titled Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt? In the seventh episode of the show, the entire first half of the episode is a series of transformers references. On top of that, it seems they did their homework, because I was able to pick out distinct series among the references, including, but not limited to, G1 (majority of the episode), the 1986 animated film (uncannily similar battle to the one between Optimus Prime and Megatron, two characters that bear a strong resemblance to Hot Rod, and a cameo by Unicron at the end), RiD and the Unicron Trilogy (Unicron's cameo, plus one of the Hotrod characters has an RiD-style transformation sequence, whose animation style and over-dramatic execution are reminiscent of both series), the live action films (the opening and closing sequences bear strong resemblance to the trailers, plus appliances are brought to life a la RotF, and "Optimasculis" and "Femitron" bear a close resemblance to their live-action counterparts), and a hint of Animated (in her Megatron form, Stocking's twin swords closely resemble the ones wielded by Animated Megatron). Ironically, and perhaps due to their similar themes, there was no obvious reference to Kiss Players. Normally I wouldn't mention a reference to transformers in a different show, but this one shows enough background knowledge that it might be worthy of mention on the wiki. Your thoughts? Xeno the Hedgehog 08:03, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I know the series, which is interesting and funny. However, I don't think we should create a page for the show since the site is about Transformers franchise. (Years ago, there were users created pages for Family Guy and Robot Chicken, which were deleted soon.) BUT, it is okay to mention any non-Transformers appearance in respective pages, such as Assassin's Creed. :D
PS. If P&S get a crossover with Transformers in products or fictions, we can create a page for the show in very good reason. --TX55TALK 08:40, January 4, 2011 (UTC)
Here's a pic which highlights some, but not all of the references in the episode; [1] Xeno the Hedgehog 23:13, January 15, 2011 (UTC)

Wiki skin since oasis Edit

I'm now allowed to give you back what you had before with monaco (mostly!) are you interested ? I can't do anything about page width, but i can give you back the opacity on the pages and the background imagine with the two transformers. — Game widow 00:53, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

THANKS! ;-D We do need a new background similar or as same as the original, because the red background is eye-hurting. --TX55TALK 02:42, January 5, 2011 (UTC)
Great! i'm on it ;) — Game widow 03:04, January 5, 2011 (UTC)
GOOD JOB! The wiki is saved. Thank you very much!! :D --TX55TALK 07:06, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

How about this for the new wordmark (logo) ? TF logoGame widow 19:00, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not TX55, but could it have the wiki's name, Teletraan I, on it as well? --Tetrap 22:52, January 7, 2011 (UTC)
The picture is good! However, like Tetrap said, the logo needs "Teletraan I" on it since it is our site's name. :D --TX55TALK 03:09, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
OK, how about this, then (the image should have changed above). — Game widow 20:11, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
I like it, but I wonder if it might be easier to avoid using the official logo and reproduce it in original lettering, so the "Teletraan I" and "Wiki" parts match better. I've had a go: Logotesttetrap --Tetrap 22:49, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
Tetrap's is better. However, can the "Transformers Wiki" be a bit smaller than "Teletraan I". For example, if "Teletraan I" is 14, "Transformers Wiki" is 12. :D --TX55TALK 02:30, January 9, 2011 (UTC)
I've adjusted the text a bit and uploaded a new copy over the old one. How's that? :) --Tetrap 03:08, January 9, 2011 (UTC)
Looks good to me. :D --TX55TALK 14:43, January 9, 2011 (UTC)
Cool! Are you going to use that one on the Wiki? --Tetrap 09:06, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
Sure. ;-D
Once you have a version that you are happy with TX55, just go to "My Tools" then choose "Theme Designer" and then go to the "Wordmark" tab to upload the new wordmark. (You'll have to download a copy of the file to your PC to do this afaik, and just make sure that it is exactly 250px wide by 65px high and in png format, and you're all set) — Game widow 12:48, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, TX55! Just curious, but I noticed you didn't put the new wordmark up yet. Is there anything else I need to do to it..? --Tetrap 23:25, January 24, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice! I uploaded a few time, and it doesn't work. I just tried another browser, it seems okay now. :D --TX55TALK 01:59, January 25, 2011 (UTC)
Awesome! :) --Tetrap 02:15, January 25, 2011 (UTC)

Two TF Wikis?Edit

I have noticed that there are two different transformers wikis. Most of the pages are almost exactly the same. Can you explain why there are two, and why they are almost identical? Thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs). 16:12, 2011 January 9

Most of the original community up and left a couple of years ago, taking a copy of the wiki with them. Both wikis are still going but are run by different people. --Tetrap 23:27, January 9, 2011 (UTC)
Which one do you prefer? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Helix341 (talkcontribs). 20:32, 2011 January 10 (UTC)

Alt Mode Edit

I edited the Alternate Mode page but later you removed everything that I added. I was wondering if I did something wrong and how I can improve the article without making other mistakes. I would appreciate any advice that you can give. (Jedijam91 06:07, January 15, 2011 (UTC))

I did not remove it, I just use comment tag to hide it, because the contents, um, need a bit improve, such as reworded or rewrite. :D --TX55TALK 06:11, January 15, 2011 (UTC)

Hello Edit

Hello. Congratulations on making your spectacular 27,000th edit! WOW!

I've got an issue, and to begin, it's me - Starscream7.

Jhon Henry, now in the form of Barricade123, has created a TF Dark of the Moon Wikia Site that Shockwave 56 and I are editing on, and we're attempting to become Bureaucrats. However, Barricade123 hasn't replied to my request (as he never does for anything). What should I do?

Most of all, how do you make Wikia Sites have the ability for Users to gain points and/or commenting to be allowed on pages? As for the commenting, see this - How do you disable commenting for pages?

Also, can you do me a giant favor? Might you be able to create a Character Template on our site? Do you have to be an Administrator/Bureaucrat to do so? Thank you very much if you can.

Here's the link to the main page:

--Lord Starscream - Happy Holidays! 01:25, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you! :D I even didn't notice my edit counts, ha ha.
For the first one about the duplicate wiki, you need to contact Wikia because it is beyond my authorization.
For the second one, "commenting function", oops, Special:Contact because I don't know how to use it. It is an alternative function of "Talk Page". You can only choose one of them.
For the third one, I just copy Template:Transformers to your site at Template:Character. But, all I can do is copy, I don't know what parameter you need, so you can replace any parameter with what you need. :D --TX55TALK 04:04, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for the templates! Starscream7 even posted it as news on the main page. I hope this thing with barricade123 is solved soon.Shock 56 18:12, January 22, 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome. I'll cross my fingers for you. Good luck with that. :-D --TX55TALK 04:43, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Inactive Administrators Edit

Including you, there are six Administrators on this site. Currently, two are completely inactive (Croebot and Jeep!)while two are partially inactive (T-680 and Ultra Magnus 506). Have you ever demoted users? I would suggest demoting Croebot and Jeep! because they've been inactive for more than a year now. Did they ever say that they would return at a 'certain' point?

I don't want to offend you on this, but I think that two inactive Administrators aren't helping you at all. It's all your decision.

--Lord Starscream - Happy Holidays! 02:11, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

T-680 is my bot account, while Croebot is a bot of Wikia Staff. So, there are only 4 admin. As for Jeep!, I'd consider to notified him if he hasn't show up for one more month. :) --TX55TALK 02:26, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

Breaking the Fourth Wall Edit

I noticed that you wrote on the Coolant Squid page that it needs to be re-written so that it doesn't break the fourth wall. I was wondering if you could tell me how to fix this article.

Any advice is appreciated. Thank You. Jedijam91 02:21, January 20, 2011 (UTC)

Usually in a page introduction and the Fiction section, things like following should be avoid:
  • "In the (episode/issue), somebody blah blah..."
  • "You can see..."
  • "Somebody is first seen in..."
--TX55TALK 12:18, January 20, 2011 (UTC)

OK, Thank you. What would be a better way to list an object/character's appearance in the article? Jedijam91 20:20, January 20, 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome.
Well, it depends. Usually we don't list it since the appearance has been listed in subtitles and contents in the Fiction section. --TX55TALK 08:02, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

Position of Authority Edit

How much contributing do you need to become a Rollback? --Lord Starscream - Happy Holidays! 01:31, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

It is not just about quantity, but quality, which is hard to be describe: Does the user know the site's editing standard? Does the user receive user notice frequently? If the answer is yes, does the user correct him/herself? and blah blah... Well things like that. :) --TX55TALK 04:43, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Article Pictures Edit

I saw that pictures on TFWiki are inapropriate for posting on this Wiki so I was wondering what would be an acceptable source for pictures? Jedijam91 03:55, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Pictures as such are not acceptable: Bad resolution, bad image name, leak or stolen images, images from TFwiki, and others. You can visit Project:Images for further information. :) --TX55TALK 04:43, January 23, 2011 (UTC)
Why don't we like TFwiki pictures? Helix341

Outside Links Edit

How do you add links to a page on another wiki? Jedijam91 21:14, January 27, 2011 (UTC)

[[w:c:****:pagename|pagename]] (for wikia site, **** is theme, like terminator, castlevania, marvel, or ncis), [[Wikipedia:pagename|]] for Wikipedia, and [http://############ pagename] for others. :D --TX55TALK 02:09, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I added a link that will be satisfactory but there are actually two wikis for that particular topic and I don't know how to differentiate the two. Jedijam91 22:33, January 28, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry... Edit

I did not know about the whole 'Caption' thing. I was just trying to start off with some jokes. Honest mistake. won't happen again.


It's okay. It is a good start that you did read the talk page. (Since many newcomers don't.) :) --23:57, January 30, 2011 (UTC)

Transformers: Prime Episode 6 Edit

I just checked out some programs on my TV for February 11th, and it said that the new episode of Transformers: Prime is titled "Masters & Students". It doesn't have any plot information, though. Hope it helps! --Lord Starscream - Happy Holidays! 01:20, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

I believed the page can be started as an epstub. Thanks for the information! :D --TX55TALK 12:17, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry again. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Helix341 (talkcontribs). 13:48, 2011 February 2

C'mon! Edit


Unicron does not approve thy editing to this rhyming orange slag-face.

My edit to that little punk] didn't mess with the layout or captions, so why did you edit it? it even rhymed all the way!

Did you see the comment? I do appreciate your work, I just hide it because it needs to be merged and cleaned up. In addition, there is no need for a section "The Transformers: The Movie" since it belongs to the American cartoon continuity section. :) --TX55TALK 01:59, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Dark of the moon Edit

Hi TX55,

I just watched the 2nd trailer for dark of the moon. This trailer reveals a lot. Gaint Decepticon ships appear, and new transformers, including Laserbeak.You can watch it on Dark of the moon wiki, pagename 'trailers 1 and 2'.

Shockwave 56 18:51, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

I've seen the Super Bowl trailer as soon as it was released. Many characters were revealed — only their appearance, not their name. --TX55TALK 02:52, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Vote for Adminship and Link Edit

Hey, it's Starscream7, and I have a request. Can Shyockwave 56 and I set up a Vote for Adminship here for our TF DOTM website? I mean, there's really nobody there to vote. The Wikia Staff stated that we should have a Vote for Adminship, and once the votes are confirmed, they can most likely safely promote Shockwave 56 and I.

Also, would you like for us to link our website to the Dark of the Moon page?

--Lord Starscream--Transformers: Dark of the Moon - 146 days! 15:15, February 12, 2011 (UTC) (137 days)

So, in short, you want to put a link here to DOTM wikia? Sure! As for setting a vote for DOTM site here, um, I think you should set the vote there and create a link to the vote on the Main Page and Transformers Wiki talk:Community Portal of Teletraan-1.  :D --TX55TALK 15:19, February 12, 2011 (UTC)

Sentinel Zeta Prime Edit

You keep deleting my picture of Zeta Prime's vehicle mode for being a bad image with a bad name. I will rename it... but how do I fix the image? I took the picture with a camera, I don't know how to do any different. --Diamondmatter 07:59, February 18, 2011 (UTC)

The point is the image is not only with a bad name, but it is not good to upload an image with is a screen shot by camera, since an image like this is generally not good because of the screen line. :) --TX55TALK 10:06, February 18, 2011 (UTC)

you deleted my work! Edit

i did some work on the Transformers: Prime (franchise) page, and you deleted the work i did there. I am going to do more work on it soon so plz do not delete. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by RaceLord (talkcontribs). 20:21, 2011 February 20

War for Cybertron and Prime Edit

I propose splitting the War for Cybertron characters and their Prime counterparts into separate articles. First of all, distinguishing the two continuities makes it easier to find the information desired, and secondly there has been no indication or acknowledgement of War for Cybertron in the Prime series thus far, and given the obvious differences in tone, style, character lineup, and target audience it's likely that the decision to group them in the same continuity was made well after production on Prime had started. Your thoughts? 03:47, March 14, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, that was me. I forgot to log in. Xeno the Hedgehog 05:00, March 14, 2011 (UTC)
I think we should wait until HA$BRO changes the setting. (By far, they claim the two franchise are under the same continuity.) However, IIRC, there were users from TFwiki suggesting any character only appears in WFC should be moved to "Name (WFC)". This sounds nice. --TX55TALK 07:51, March 14, 2011 (UTC)
I'm for splitting the articles into WFC and Prime. They don't seem to be related, the characters look and sound different, and Dark energon has been introduced on two completely different ways. I think Hasbro is only keeping them the same because they are the only continuities with Dark Energon in. Helix341

He's ruining everything!Edit


I just saw that Starhawk7 has set up a TX55 Hate page (Posted comment for deletion). Next to that he set a sentence, about you, on the Mudflap page (I deleted it already). I don't know if he did this on other pages.

I deleted the hate page. Xeno the Hedgehog 23:28, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

The best thing to do is delete the page and ban Starhawk7 for a couple of (Days, weeks?). Shockwave 56 19:06, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the support, too!! ^^ --TX55TALK 06:03, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
Forgive my insensitivity, but I'm curious to know why the page was created in the first place. Xeno the Hedgehog 06:21, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
I possibly know — the user changes many captions without many solid contributions. I reverted most of them. --TX55TALK 07:09, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, so he's one of those users who thinks they're above the system. Xeno the Hedgehog 07:29, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
He thinks he's above doing things properly, and he created the hate page 'cos he was annoyed at you trying to make this site good. Did he put loads of opinions on, like saying "Starscream is a power-hungry jerk who should be ripped in half"? Kind of thing his type do... Helix341

Probably.Shockwave 56 18:25, March 22, 2011 (UTC)

Administrator Edit

I've seen on other wiki's that there are users called administrators, who make sure the wiki is up to a good standard. Is this what you are? If so, how do you become one? Thanks, Helix341

I was recommended to become an admin. All I do is to make sure the contents on this site qualified the standard. --TX55TALK 13:05, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
Same here, though I still don't think I'm qualified. Xeno the Hedgehog 18:13, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

I realize we shouldn't have to do this, but perhaps it's time we added a notice to the front page explaining to new users that we operate on the notion that in order to truly appreciate something, one must be willing to satirize it. We should also include a list of the current administrative staff, to discourage any rude statements from said users, such as that in the above paragraphs. Speaking of which, is Jeep! still with us? Furthermore, would you like me to leave a message on the above user's talk page explaining the satirical nature of this wiki? Xeno the Hedgehog 06:07, April 25, 2011 (UTC)
It's a good idea to have a notion like this on the Main Page.
As for the admin list, judging from my experiences, I personally think it won't do any help, instead, admin may become "targets".
I think he is still with us as an admin last time I checked.
It's okay, I don't think you need to ask me before leaving the message to him. :D (Though I wonder if he will understand or even come back recently.)

You can check the page history. :-) This time is about the image uploading. I've removed two images upload by you since they are duplicate and rename one image. So there is no need for fix so far. Please be careful next time. ;-) --TX55TALK 11:10, June 3, 2011 (UTC)

Can you send me a link to your image policy page. I don't like to keep making mistakes? Thank you. Jedijam91 01:24, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

Is this acceptable? If it is I can go ahead and put it on Brawl's page. If not could you tell me how to fix it. Also I apologize for my inexperience with this matter. I am an avid editor of Halo Nation and I have not encountered problems like this so far which is why I am having problems like this now. Thank you. Jedijam91 19:38, June 6, 2011 (UTC)
It's okay. :D You're welcome.

When you are in the Special:Upload, there is "Summary:". Be sure to type something like (I mean "something like", not copy the whole contents without changing the information) as the below shows:
''[[War for Cybertron]]'' [[Dragstrip (Prime)|Dragstrip]]

{{C}} 2010 Activision Blizzard
Note that the format should be kept.
As for the second part, I change the image names, so you should search in Special:NewFiles. --TX55TALK 03:00, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
Is there any way to add the
{{C}} 2010 Activision Blizzard 

after the picture is added to the page? I have been using the add picture tool on the page edit function. Jedijam91 02:30, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

In that case, you can simply click the "edit" button on an image page. It is just like editing a normal page.
By the way. I remove the extra ".jpg" from Screamer's image name which you just upload. :) --TX55TALK 06:28, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

Prime Edit

I have noticed that there is very little information available for the Prime Cartoon even though there are several episodes out already. Is this deliberate or is it just that nobody has gotten around to it yet? Jedijam91 13:30, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

Before I add onto Knockout's page can you tell me why his picture was removed? I'm pretty sure that I added all the correct material and named it properly. Jedijam91 02:22, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

You can visit Special:Log/delete. The image is removed because it is identical to the main image of Knockout on TFwiki. :)

Just out of curiosity, why is Teletraan 1 not allowed to use pictures that are on TFwiki? They are making it difficult for me to locate legitimate pictures of the characters. Jedijam91 02:22, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
