'Agents of SHIELD' season 2 spoilers: Lucy Lawless scores significant role

image

Call this a gift from the genre TV gods. Given her work on “Xena: Warrior Princess,” there are many out there who probably already consider Lucy Lawless to be a hero in some right. Now, she can also celebrate being someone surrounded by heroes on Marvel’s “Agents of SHIELD.” According to a…

Tardigrades (also known as waterbears or moss piglets) are water-dwelling, segmented micro-animals, with eight legs.
Tardigrades are classified as extremophiles, organisms that can thrive in a physically or geochemically extreme condition that would be detrimental to most life on Earth. For example, tardigrades can withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for more than 10 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce.

Friendly reminder: wranglers on AO3 physically cannot remove or replace tags on users’ works or bookmarks. We literally do not have the system access to do that because we can’t access the tags on individual works/bookmarks. Only the Abuse team can do that, and they operate under very strict guidelines based on our Terms of Service.

Please don’t blame wranglers for users not tagging correctly or spread misinformation about us “refusing” to change users’ tags. Thanks!

SIGNAL BOOST

Pay attention to what you’re reblogging people!!!

I’m now imagining their attempts to infiltrate getting more and more complex. Soon, they’ll be joining the fandoms and making fanart, fanfiction, and other tumblr content. Then when they realize their aims will take a greater investment of time and effort, they’ll start waiting weeks before spamming troll posts. Months. Years.

60 years from now an old man gets the signal from 4chan that it’s time to act. He kisses the wife he met on tumblr on the cheek in her sleep to say goodbye, whispering his love for her in her ear, his voice tinged by unmistakable shades of regret. As he takes out his holographatronic phone and posts his gore post, shocking the tumblr users that are part of his pinochle blog following, he keeps looking at the photos of his children and grandchildren on his desk and weeps despondently.

He knew this day would come. He’s always had his mission. But he went too deep, came to love this life too much. He’s not ready to say goodbye.

He NEVER would have been ready to say goodbye.

Hallo! I would like to tag my fic "Bucky/Steve", but no matter what I do it turns into "bucky/steve". Could this be fixed, pretty please?
erindizmo erindizmo Said:

wrangletangle:

Ah, good question, anon! A lot of folks ask this. The answer is no, it can’t be fixed according to current rules.

The way the archive works is this: upper and lowercase letters, as well as accented forms of letters, are treated as identical by the database. This is an underlying limitation of the code we run on.

When a tag is added to the archive, whoever adds it (i.e., the first tagger) decides the capitalization and accent marks on the tag. Then they basically pass the tag to wranglers.

Wranglers have strict limits. We can change the capitalization and accents on tags that we mark canonical (as in, they appear in the auto-complete and filters). We can also ask the db peeps to fix tags that come in affected by a specific bug that makes them impossible to access to wrangle, which usually involves particular sequences of lowercase letters interspersed with punctuation (in these cases, they usually solve the problem by making the letters uppercase). Otherwise, we leave the tags alone.

Some people have really strong pro-capitalization feels, while others have strong pro-lowercase feels, and some even prefer all caps. Our current policy is neutrality on tags that aren’t canonical. Otherwise, we could get caught in a battle between users who prefer one or the other, when our real focus is on canonizing and connecting tags to make the archive more searchable.

I know it’s not the same, but may I offer you the canonical James “Bucky” Barnes/Steve Rogers? I can guarantee that one will always be capitalized.

As someone with a vested interest in the Las Pegasus Unicon fiasco (and someone who has been working and planning conventions for 4 years now), I decided to do some research on DashCon for the exact same reasons - it appears to have been a complete and total disaster.

If anyone has ACTUAL PROOF that either confirms or debunks any of the following claims, please let me know.

Here’s what I’ve learned about DashCon so far:

  • con staff trying to push more expensive tickets onto people that apparently came with a Steam Powered Giraffe show ticket (which is apparently not happening) (VERIFIED BY: |)

  • vendor hall mostly empty for some undisclosed reason
  • Welcome To Night Vale ditched the con and cancelled their panel and performance when DashCon would not pay them. attendees sat in the room for an hour before they got an explanation (VERIFIED BY: ||||)

  • people paid RESERVE SEATS months in advance for the WTNV panel (VERIFIED BY: ||||)

  • Con staff insisting they had people in the thousands attending and present at the venue, when real numbers were closer to 500
  • Panels and events were not planned at all, with hotel mints being given out as prizes (VERIFIED BY: ||)

  • Games room had just a single TV in it and some tables

  • there was a BDSM panel and DashCon could get sued for allowing minors into it, along with other +18 panels where they did the same (VERIFIED BY: |)

  • some people started to sing Let It Go and were verbally assulted

  • DashCon now blaming the bank for not being able to pay WTNV

  • people are demanding partial or full refunds (and they will not likely see any of it due to the con not actually having any money)

  • it has already spread around that DashCon was likely a scam

  • last night they ran an emergency #SaveDashCon thing and raised like 17,000 bucks

  • nobody knows where it went

  • most of their contracts were verbal only

  • rumors of the venue now threatening to shut the whole thing down

As someone who witnessed first-hand as Las Pegasus Unicon went down (I tracked the whole thing over the course of about 4 months until the dust began to settle), I’m genuinely interested to see how this plays out. You’ve got a whole con full of bored and annoyed Tumblr-goers who will either a) just plain not show up tomorrow, or b) show up and be very angry.

However it plays out, let this be a lesson and a wake-up call to ANYONE who EVER thought it was a good idea to let TUMBLR run a serious event. I know you all love eachother ect. ect. Tumblr fandom community, but good intentions do not make a con - and you’ve proven yourselves not responsible enough to run a con.

DashCon needs to die here. It will not be coming back. Enough damage has been done.

I’m almost afraid to ask, but… what’s Dine n’ Dashcon???

Dashcon. A tumblr convention going on right now near Chicago that has turned into an ABSOLUTE FIASCO.

Watching the ever spiraling adventures of Dine ‘n’ DashCon just has me unable to even pick my jaw up off the floor.
