Hi there!
Recently I saw on the templates of some Transformer-article pages that they have some numbers how good these Transformers are in their strengh or speed.
Now I like to ask where your sources are or if you're only guessing them because I've seen these numbers now for the first time.

Hello, I'm busy in real life and may not come back as a regular editor in a long term.
Hope to see you more often again.

G1 Sunstorm image

Hey TX55, I noticed you deleted the picture of Sunstorm. I was planning on using it for the G1 Sunstorm page in reference to him being in the game Transformers Revenge of the Fallen as part of the DLC pack for the game, but apparently the editor doesn't want to work for me. It sits there idling, so it appears I just uploaded a picture for no reason. Item birdofprey 01 ₩indrazor 19:05, January 23, 2013 (UTC)

Um, no, I didn't delete the image. It was renamed because the old name didn't fit the standard. The move log can be seen in Special:RecentChanges. It's convenient. :D --TX55TALK 02:11, January 24, 2013 (UTC)

Why are you putting that ridiculous caption back?

"New "Wildberry" Swoop is two, two, two flavors in one!"? Why is this necessary? It's so stupid, like so many of the unnecessary quotes. This is why this wiki can't be taken seriously at times. Letdragon (talk) 01:07, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

A few comments

(I've removed one of my comments I made here out of frustration, mostly with Wikipedia. At the time, I didn't realize that all these wikis share editors. Since, I tried signing in with the same password I use on Wikipedia. It worked Gringo300 (talk) 18:28, July 14, 2013 (UTC))

You removed some edits that stated the just plain truth.

It is FACT that the Transformers Generation 1 series is full of contradictions and inconsistencies. No wishing it were otherwise will change this fact.

  • The Quintesson creation of both the Autobots and Decepticons clearly contradicts material presented in the first two seasons. But then again, the origin stories weren't real consistent in the first two seasons, either.
  • Yes, in the first two seasons Cybertron was depicted as considerably smaller than Earth- but not NEAR as much smaller as it was in the 1986 movie. It was depicted as so small in the movie, humans could have conceivably been seen walking around on it's surface.
  • Clearly, it was sometimes strongly implied that Optimus Prime was the leader of just one group of Autobots, not all Autobots. One example that comes to mind is in the episode "The Gambler". Just watch/listen to the dialogue between DevCon and Smokescreen.

Well, I've explained the edits I made that were removed. That's really all I can do.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Some of your edits get hidden instead of being deleted because they may belong to other section (like Notes). That's why I hide them for now to make the layout smooth.--TX55TALK 13:47, March 6, 2013 (UTC)
Perhaps I was biased because of past experiences on Wikis, etc.. In the past I have gone to great lengths to add factual information to articles, say on Wikipedia for example, only to have it quickly- and effortlessly- deleted ny moderators, administrators, other editors, etc.. It has been indescribably frustrating and exasperating. Perhaps I will sign up eventually, after all. Right now, I'm dealing with an 89 year old grandmother rapidly going down hill. I'm on edge 24 hours a day, every day. I feel like many people often try too hard to reconcile the many contradictions and inconsistencies in the Transformers Generation 1 cartoon. To me, they're trying to find logic where there is none.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).
Wish thing will go smooth for you. :)
Well, for me, though I care logic, I don't actually take G1 cartoon so seriously, because it is funny to see these things. *lol*--TX55TALK 02:00, 2013 March 7

Just tried something...

From what I was reading, it sounded like anyone with a Wikipedia account could sign in here, too. I thought, "Well, it's worth a try..." and - low and behold - it worked!

Star Saber

Hello. I have been searching for an image for the Star Saber and I have com across a problem. It seems that TFWiki has the best image currently out there for the Star Saber and I know that our image policy prohibits our usage of an image such as that. I was wondering if it would be possible to take that image and alter it slightly (cutting the margins slightly shorter for example) and then post it on this site. Thank you Jedijam91 (talk) 21:21, April 13, 2013 (UTC)

Even it is altered, it is still from TFwiki. I think the best way is to ask them if the image can be borrowed (and sure we will put the source with something like "Courtesy of TFwiki". If it won't work, perhaps we should scan by ourselves or find one on Google. :) --TX55TALK 01:48, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

'Da heck is wrong with you people?

Not trying to be a wiki nazi or anything, but this place is just going down fast. I've been noticing a pattern of recurring editors- the pattern being the staggering lack thereof, unless all the ones without accounts are actually the same guy. A lot of articles are unnecessary, and hurled in for humour's sake. I'm not an admin anywhere, nor am i on the Wikia staff, but I know steady disintegration when I see it; the Mortal Engines wiki now lies in stagnant ruins because of just this kind of decay.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Slug gunner fan (talkcontribs).

Agreed, I mean no offense or anything but the tfwiki is better. They have all the info one hour after an episode is aired, which is just how long it takes to make an article. Even after months you guys are missing pages and have barely any pictures. The background is also REALLY boring. Hope you can make it better. 00:47, May 12, 2013 (UTC)
I'll be the first to say this wiki needs a lot of upgrades. The main requirement for this would be more discussion between editors. I don't see near enough of that on here. Gringo300 (talk) 18:31, July 14, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, you are not the first one. Several editors have said so, however, well, you know... there are only few editor around here. --TX55TALK 07:45, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

Featured Media

Hello TX55,

We have a video on the Wikia library for the upcoming episode of the Prime Cartoon, Season 3. I'm including a link to it HERE.

Just wanted to offer you the opportunity to feature it under a Featured Media section on the home page since it could hold interest for your users.

Please let me know what you decide.


Nick@fandom 21:39, June 19, 2013 (UTC)

So it is officially licensed or official video? If so, feel free to put it on. Thanks for the information! ;-D --TX55TALK 23:42, June 19, 2013 (UTC)


I know this wiki really doesn't admins but I really want to become one on this wiki because I think I could really shape up the wiki including css and mediawiki pages. I'm an admin on 5 other wikis and I can ensure you that I am experienced. I really know how to mange template and am really good at working with rich text editing. And am very familiar with all the special pages I just want to make this wiki great and I want to help the community. Ray422 (talk) 20:06, August 13, 2013 (UTC)Ray422

Photos & Update

Hey there, TX55!

We have recently gotten our hands on a number of officially licensed photos of the cars from Transformers 4 -- is there anywhere on the wiki where these can live?

Also, I am considering making some updates to the Transformers 4 page with relevant production information. Will this align with your standards/policy? Let me know!

Mhadick (talk) 17:35, August 14, 2013 (UTC)

Just wondering...

Wikia Videos for Transformers

Hello! I just wanted to make sure you knew Wikia has a number of Transformers videos that could be good for your community. Our videos are fully licensed to Wikia for use on our sites, so there's no chance they will be removed any time in the future like YouTube videos sometimes are. These videos are viewable worldwide and since Wikia does have the full license for these videos, your wikia can use them anywhere you like!

It would be great if these videos were used on relevant pages within the wikia, put in a related videos module that would be located in the right rail of every page as seen here, or even just added via Special:Videos to be available for use! Please let me know if you need any help adding them on your community, or have feedback on the videos.

Thank you for your time! :)

Sorry. I am very busy for the school so I may miss some message. I think it is good to add those video as they are licensed. I am glad to know there will be video not provided by YouTube as they can get removed sometimes. Thanks for the information! :D --TX55TALK 23:43, September 24, 2013 (UTC)


Thanks for clearing up my userpage. I don't know who is doing this, as he had struck my userpages on the wikis I contribute. I requested a user for Call of Duty Wiki to run a checkuser on this user.

Visual Editor

I am in Special:WikiFeatures, so just "Enable" The New VisualEditor? --TX55TALK 03:30, December 4, 2013 (UTC)
oh yeah, there's a newer newer version it seems, enable it if you want but now I think this wiki should carry on using the code-based editor because then new visual editor is still in testing stages and there are a few bugs, I'm not sure if you can enable the current visual editor that most wikis have by default.(Talk) 19:06, December 4, 2013 (UTC)
Anyway, I enabled it before I posted last message, hope it works. ;D --TX55TALK 08:26, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Wikia's Gothic Community Takeover

Hey there! You might already be aware of this, but Wikia is currently running a contest where we're asking communities to Gothify their Wikias, similar to how Wikias changed up their look for Halloween, and we think it's something that your community will find interesting. Head over here for details! If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.

Hey! I just put up this blog post asking the Transformers Wikia community to submit anything interesting that they spot in the upcoming first look at Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Copyright Issues

Are you even sure that might happen the Lyrics Wiki and Disney Wiki does not seem to have a problem with it and no one from the Disney Company has yet to make a complaint. Byzantinefire 23:09, March 11, 2014 (UTC)

The Lyrics Wiki actually moved to Wikia from being independent because Wikia were able to swing a deal with the record companies so the Lyrics Wiki could keep listing lyrics. That's also the reason you can't download a backup for Lyrics wiki. Wikipedia also specifically avoids lyrics because of the copyright issues around them: No idea what arrangement Disney Wiki has, if any. --Tetrap (talk) 03:40, March 12, 2014 (UTC)
Well i can name more than one Wiki that has lyrics. Byzantinefire 03:44, March 12, 2014 (UTC)

Parent Page

Hi TX55!

My name is Scott, and I'm part of the Community team with Wikia. I'm reaching out today to see if it's alright if we set up an informative "Parent Page" here on the Transformers Wiki. If so, would you and/or the other admins have any interest in helping us fill it out, since you know the subject far better than we do?

Here is a Parent Page example from The Harry Potter Wiki to give you an idea of what the page entails. Essentially, it's a guide for parents about the age range for different wikias.

Let me know if you have any questions! We are planning to start setting up the pages over the next week or so. Thank you for your time!
