Title: Just so we're clear...
Post by: Sam Spade on September 16, 2008, 03:26:14 PM
Which are you? Are you a Networker? An ATACer? Or are you Neutral?

We have already argued over which is better, so just to be clear, which do you prefer?

"Networkers" are fans of The Network. "ATACers" are fans of ATAC.

I love these fake quotes!

sorry couldn't resist

Really, it's annoying! ::) (But fun if you're the one fake-quoting ;))

word, actually its not that annoying, especially if its so ridiculous people don't actually believe it
Title: Re: Just so we're clear...
Post by: JoeHardyRocks on September 18, 2008, 07:13:01 PM
Yeah, but if it keeps happening over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, its annoying! ::)

Speaking of annoying, so is waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for the stupid move thing to get over so you can read what someone said!

Actually, I think it's pretty funny (the fake quotes particularly) but it can sometimes getting a tad annoying depending. What could be worse is this:

Person 1: You're stupid!
Person 2: You're stupider!
Person 1: You're super, super stupid!
Person 2: You're extra, super, super stupid!

OR:

Person 1: Don't copy me.
Person 2: Don't copy me.
Person 1: Person 2 is stupid.
Person 2: Person 1 is stupid.

Well, it depends.

Wow, you put some thought into this!
Title: Re: Just so we're clear...
Post by: Olivia on September 19, 2008, 03:04:43 AM
I actually thought of it fast. I was thinking about the fake quotes and how people copy what the other person says but changes it. Then I thought about people copying each other outright, and it just went from there!

Protest is the only way to convince him that we like his old name!

What if he likes his new name?
Title: Re: Just so we're clear...
Post by: Bigfootman on October 12, 2008, 07:05:20 PM
He only changed it because he was being teased!
Title: Re: Just so we're clear...

BY ONE PERSON!!!
Title: Re: Just so we're clear...
Post by: Bigfootman on October 12, 2008, 07:08:48 PM
And that one person teased him in every thread, so he was forced to change his name.

We should report NZone. ;)

Um, not an ATACer or Networker.
Just a fan of The Hardy Boys in general in all their appearances. :) 8)

Uhm, I think I'm and ATACer. Nut necessarily a UB fan over the Casefiles, but I like ATAC better than the Network.

I think it started around the time the "ATAC fans unite" (may have gotten the topic title wrong) topic started. Don't know the exact post.

The reason I don't like ATAC is because ATAC sends it's agents on silly missions (like investigating Hot Dog Contests, and investigating sabotage at Reality Shows ). Also, Frank and Joe always end up on ATAC missions in every single UB book. The good thing about the Network is that it only appeared in some Casefiles, not every single one!

 Also, in the UBs Frank and Joe were way too dependent on gadgets. In Thrill Ride they needed a gadget to defeat An over-sized 12 year old.

Yeah, I thought that was stupid. ::) But I like ATAC over all. ;D

I think one thing to remember about The Hardy Boys Casefiles and The Hardy Boys: Undercover Brothers is that the Casefiles were clearly aimed at a teenage audience. The Undercover Brothers were aimed at a preteen audience (ages 8-12). So maybe that's why ATAC doesn't seem nearly on as grand a scale as The Network. I think I generally prefer The Network over ATAC as competing agencies, but honestly- they both work to put criminals behind bars and stop crimes and rescue people- so why should there be a fight about it? I wouldn't say the UB is my favorite series or anything, but I don't totally despise it or anything either. It's okay and has some good moments from what I can tell, but unfortunately just does not seem to hit the right stride with a lot of readers and seems to "dumb down" The Hardys somewhat, if you know what I mean- not to mention let things slide on their language...

Exactly. And we've been through all these issues before, so I don't think there is much more to say on it. Hopefully the new "Adventure" series will be a big improvement for The Hardy Boys.

I hope the Hardy Boys Adventures will be better all round. :-\ Especially the language!  ::) Can't they have a better title then that though? Like, I don't know... "The Hardy Boys Casefiles Revamped."? :D
Title: Re: Just so we're clear...
Post by: MacGyver on January 30, 2012, 04:59:28 PM
I don't think "The Hardy Boys Adventures" is that bad of a title myself- I think it's pretty good actually. But that series is still a ways off- a lot of things might change with it, including the title, before it releases.
