    given that most of the original rangers were hired as kickypunch people first and actors second, I'm fairly happy with what we got

    At least with Kat, we got a real arc that built up through a good chunk of the season, introducing her and integrating her while simultaneously giving Kim a real sendoff.

    As opposed to "oh, you guys are gonna go on this peace trip thing well bye I guess".

    In fairness the actors walked out over money issues

    They had to dub in even the little we got of their send off

    Guys

    I get that you love all this stuff and I'd never tell you you're wrong for liking it at all!

    But maybe you should create your own thread to discuss it? It's dominated this thread recently, and that shows that there's enough enthusiasm for it to be given it's own space I reckon

    I know it's easy to ignore a conversation happening in a thread, but I'm having to ignore whole pages.

    I feel a thread might be a more appropriate venue for such invested enthusiasm?

    Well maybe they would be, if you guys took this discussion there

    Which is not to say I am telling you what to do

    just that it seems like you guys are enthusiastic about this so why not give it it's own thread?

    And then people who want to talk about superhero comics and movies and shit on SE++ can do so here

    The last couple pages have also had talk about superhero comics and movies and shit.

    Nothing is stopping you from joining in on that just because some people are also talking about a different thing that you don't personally care about that is also totally an aspect of superhero things.

    The thread says superheroes

    That's what this is

    As pointed out we had threads and they died

    I dont really see how this is different than not caring about dc discussion or marvel discussion

    If a mod would like us to move it id be happy to but this is the superhero thread so I dont think its off topic

    I'm not, though, I'm just suggesting that you take it to your own thread. There is a thread for it, and it's also clearly something that can sustain it's own discussion!

    if you don't feel like you should have to do that, or don't want to, or whatever, then I'm not your mum or a mod so you don't have to do what I say

    I'm not trying to judge you folks or anything.

    And I'm not a mod or anything, so this is just my own perspective.

    But I've never really considered Super-Sentai/MMPR to be superheroes, and that's on me but I really don't. And anytime they are brought up I may as well be reading French, because my interest is shot.

    Which happens with other topics too but recently they have been brought up a lot.

    Like a lot -- a lot, and perhaps such passion for the topic would be better served in its own thread?

    I mean,

    It doesn't really feel like you would bring this up in then first place if you didn't want it to happen.

    It comes off kinda passive aggressive.

    If it wasn't supposed to then it wasn't, but it definitely does.

    Making aggressive demands that a poster can't enforce/enact?

    It's not passive aggressive

    Passive aggressive would be to say "hey so other than all this toku talk how about some superhero news..." and then to segue into whatever

    this was regular direct "maybe go and talk about this somewhere else" and yes I would rather you did do that, otherwise I would not suggest it

    aggressive aggressive, if you like!

    It wasn't rude, if that's what you're getting at, I was trying to be nice and polite about it

    I dunno. You could just talk about and post about the things you want to while other people do the same?

    Final Fantasy 14 talk comes up a lot in the JRPG thread. Somehow I get by.

    On the whole I try to be nice and polite.

    But I don't see how to maintain that moving forward in this conversation because its likely going to sound like I'm just shitting all over a thing you folks are very passionate about.

    Good tagline too; though I'd rather read a 2099 book that actually takes place in 2099, personally.

    Does it not?
    Isn't Captain America 2099 supposed to be in it?

    I mean, I don't know how else to interpret "fighting crime before his time"

    I can only come up with 'hero displaced to past', which pretty much prevents it from taking place in 2099.

    The cover does make it looked like it's 2099, though.

    Yeah, I was considering that.

    isn't it a time-honored tradition for covers to not reflect actual book content? I feel like that's a thing.

    edit: maybe it's like 2090?

    The 2014 series has a bit of stuff happening in 2099, so maybe this series will have something similar

    No it isn't. It was a calm, polite suggestion that you talk about a certain subject (which, while popular in the eyes of many usual posters in this thread, is also completely unknown to many of the other usual posters in this thread) in a thread of it's own so it doesn't dominate the discussion here. I wasn't telling you to leave. This isn't a party. You aren't being evicted from the house.

    you're just getting really defensive over it

    if you want to talk about that stuff here then go for it, I'm hardly going to report you or anything

    Listing what a power ranger can and can't do really does make a case for being a super hero or not.

    Also when someone says "hey, I feel what you are saying to me is shitty and it hurts" maybe don't respond by telling them "no those feelings are invalid you are just being too defensive".

    Just say "okay guys well I can appreciate that you might feel that this is off topic, but actually we've tried this as it's own thread before and it's died. We do really want to talk about it though, so if it's cool then we're going to keep the topic here"

    Which Hullis actually did! (I cannot directly call someone WeedLordVegeta sorry) and then I responded in the interests of just discussing the topic

    but then you guys got pretty bent out of shape over what is, essentially, just a passing thought on whether it might be best (and was not, I repeat, any kind of hurtful attack for god's sake)

    and here we are

    that is ridiculous and untrue

    Solar has said multiple times that he doesn't actually care if the discussion is migrated! You three are just being super touchy about the suggestion to make another forum thread, this is so not the big deal you're making it out to be. There's actually no downside to taking the suggestion! Or to not taking it!

    I hate to be some kind of thick skin advocate but the idea that you're being trapped in a decision or forced out is cut from whole cloth.
