      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. So they went from TW/ATT to SC/ATT?
  2. This worked so well for Assassin's Creed...
  3. Because Tom Holland is the guy that does the frat house's accounting, not the Big Man on Campus that Drake should be. Actors fit different molds, and Drake isn't his. Someone brought up Heath Ledger as a defense, but I saw that casting as excellent right away. You could see how it would work. The guy had an effortless cool factor. It's why everyone feels such a strong affinity for Fillion. It's just not the mold Holland comes from, nothing to do with his acting ability (he's a great Spider-man). Drake should be a douchebag, but he isn't. The best proper actor comparison I can make is Chris Pine. His role in Stretch cements him as having great comedic time and effortless charisma.
  4. It's being run by Orci and Kurtzman guys, don't get too excited.
  5. Nothing wrong with casting younger, but they gotta find a dude with the presence of Drake, and Tom Holland is a different kind of person than that. He doesn't fit the mold, and he won't. As to Boreanaz and Fillion they're the right type of actor but are definitely too old at this point. Drake should be in his mid-30s at most when the franchise starts. Chris Pine would be a good fit (because it's not the face shape, but the presence and charm that matter).
  6. The more films a studio has planned from the beginning the less I care to get invested in the first place. How about they make one good film first, then we start thinking about if the story has a sequel?
  7. Oh man, that's awful news. My heart goes out to him and his family. No one should outlive their children, especially like this.
  8. This franchise needs a rest.
  9. That's...bizarre to me. He's a fine actor, but I don't see it. Even as a young Drake. Seems more like an attempt by Sony to increase his star power than an attempt to make a good movie that fits the franchise.
  10. Can't really be in DC's universe anymore, so sure, why not?
  11. Apoc, I like you man so don't take this the wrong way, but that's some shitty Zach Snyder logic to justify being dark and moody when the expectation is hope and resolve. I wasn't crying out for Klingon Wars, so that doesn't apply to me. Worf gave me everything I needed in that regard. I want Trek to move forward, boldly, where we have not gone before. Not to retread the past. New ship, new crew, new generation, new exploration of mankind's faults by putting our idealized selves up against alien races that embody our deepest flaws. That's Trek to me. And I don't really know what you mean with the "have you read the thread" comment. My initial comment was my own reactions to the trailer, in which I saw Sarek and determined I was not the least bit interested in Spock or his family. Do you maybe assume I was following an earlier conversation? As far as I was concerned our conversation started with my statement at the top of the 3rd page. I'm sick of Star Trek essentially being "Spock Trek." This isn't Star Wars where the Skywalker family is the central construct, but the studio seems desperate to make it that way in regards to Spock. He's important, for sure, but one of literally dozens of main characters at this point. In my opinion it drags the franchise down to keep bringing him or his relations back in, especially now that Nemoy has passed on.
  12. You are correct! http://www.slashfilm.com/batman-v-superman-reactions/
  13. It's hard to trust WB early social media reviews, and it is not a good sign they want to hold real reviews embargoed up until the day it releases worldwide, but I am happy for Patty Jenkins and Gale Gadot if this turns out to be a solid film. Maybe they'll hand her the reigns of the Justice League if she gets a great reception (and kick Snyder to the curb, or at least force him into "producer" status). BvS had extremely positive early twitter buzz, as well: http://www.slashfilm.com/batman-v-superman-reactions/
  14. It's Sarek. Hence my comment, "sick of Spock and his family being shoehorned into everything." Also, Orville does look better. It's not Trek, but it is modern, and has some brightness to it (abuses of lens flare don't count). McFarlane's show has hope, not angst and dread and destruction.
  15. It's a good looking show I have zero desire to watch as a rather large Trek fan. They could have avoided all of these issues completely by moving forward another generation. Instead, we'll have constant things that bother us or make us go "wait, huh?", taking us out of the show and destroying our immersion. At least my apathy towards that trailer (Orville looks like better Trek) means I can wait out CBS' shit release strategy. I'm not interested in a prequel, and I am actually sick of Spock and his family being shoehorned into everything Trek. I want new stories, new adventures, and new freedoms for them to explore crazy technology, like the holodecks were for TNG. We've made so many advances in science since the 60s and all of that is essentially off the table since the tech can never be so far advanced it eclipses TOS. Far more than insignia choices that will be a problem for me.
