ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsOkay, let's be real, people were excited for the movie 'Venom' but not that excited. Even the trailers didn't help with building up the hype and that's quite unfortunate, to be honest. Actually, the most I've heard about the movie was when everyone was thirsting after Venom. Yes, the internet is a weird place. But, even though Tom Hardy was successful in making everyone horny in his alien space suit, he still wasn't able to save the movie, and the first reactions of 'Venom' are proving just that. Just a disclaimer, there are no spoilers ahead, just tweets by people who've already seen the movie and who are talking about it without giving away any plot points. So, it's like 14 years too late? Social embargo for #Venom is up. I talk about this a lot in my review but this is a movie that somehow slipped through a wormhole from 2004. That's my biggest take. It's a movie that spilled from the pre-MCU era through a crack in time and space. — The Mothmegð NYCC (@rustypolished) October 2, 2018 Well, this isn't totally negative. Action-sequences and Eddie and Venom's odd relationship are the highlights of #Venom but if Sony wants to move forward with a universe, it needs to just keep the few parts that work and scrap the large portion which does t. — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) October 2, 2018 Poor Michelle Williams. She did the best she could with what she was given, I think. https://t.co/fyK1gsmTvo — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) October 2, 2018 Finally, a good reaction! So #Venom. I went in fearing the worst, BUT I actually liked it quite a bit more than I thought I would. I still wish it was rated R, but it seems like they set up something to cross over into Spider-Man's movies, and it was funnier than I imagined. — ð»ashleyð (@AshleyEsqueda) October 2, 2018 And, we're back. Sorry to say that #Venom is pretty much a complete failure - a tonal mess that feels 15 years old, ignoring the storytelling strides that the superhero genre has made in recent years. A few fun Venom-centric moments aside, it has nearly nothing to offer. Don't get your hopes up. — Tom Horrorgensen (@Tom_Jorgensen) October 2, 2018 This is harsh. In regards to #Venom, I haven't felt that way walking out of a superhero movie since Green Lantern. — Joshua Yehlblazer (@JoshuaYehl) October 3, 2018 So, Tom Hardy is the saving grace? @JimmytotheO had a good time with @VenomMovie. While it has its flaws, he calls it “fast paced, funny and sometimes thrilling...” Plus “Tom Hardy is pretty phenomenal.” Full review soon! pic.twitter.com/CKYdLPRyAL — JoBlo.com (@joblocom) October 2, 2018 So much sarcasm, love it! You mean to tell me a movie about a Spider-Man villain without Spider-Man and made outside the context of the Marvel Universe simply as a money grab isn't good? Stunning. #venom — Robin Lundberg (@robinlundberg) October 2, 2018 I haven't even seen the movie, but I totally get her point. It's...not a complete disaster? At least I was never mad watching it? But it is an excruciatingly surreal experience. The humor, the story beats, everything right down to the Eminem theme song feels like it emerged Kimmy Schmidt style from a sealed off early 00s bunker. — The Mothmegð NYCC (@rustypolished) October 2, 2018 Well, after all, it is Tom Hardy. Tom Hardy's performance in #Venom is either Johnny Depp in the first PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN or Chris Klein in STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI. Either way, it's not boring. — Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 2, 2018 Very neutral. Not sure if Tom Hardy's weirdness sabotaged #Venom or saved it, but it has a self-aware cartoonishness, especially in its latter half. It's not "good," but it's better than expected. Doesn't feel like an R-rated film, am guessing the deleted 40min is just Hardy clowning around. — Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 2, 2018 Almost every review summed up in one sentence – “It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be.” #Venom wasn't as bad as everyone was saying it was going to be. Tom Hardy is and always will be a great actor, and I laughed a lot — but I'm not sure whether that was intentional or not. Post-credit scene is ð¥ — Beatrice Verhoeven (@bverhoev) October 2, 2018 The first person who liked it a lot. #Venom was only the best superhero movie I've seen in along while. It's refreshing to see a superhero film that wasn't bogged down by years of movies and characters. Def a worth see. Sony really gave it their all. — Aaron- Certified Rotten (@Bizarnage) October 2, 2018 Okay then. Significant chunks of #Venom don't work *at all* but there is some serious charm to the Eddie/Venom relationship. Not sure I had the intended reactions to some scenes but fun is fun - even when it's totally ridiculous, right? It's too bad they didn't go for the R rating though. — Deweystein's Monster (@PNemiroff) October 2, 2018 Okay, this is my favourite tweet from all of these. #Venom is like a buddy comedy in which one of the buddies has to prevent the other from biting people's heads off, which is another way of saying I liked it. — Michael Nordine (@slowbeard) October 2, 2018
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsImagine it's yet another day of the week, you are going about it as per usual and as your wonderful luck would have it, you have the opportunity to behold two of your country's very celebrated and popular celebrities, one being a legend, while riding up an elevator, as the door slides open at a random floor. © Reuters Now, imagine the same scenario starring 'The Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon and former bass guitarist and singer of 'The Beatles' Paul McCartney. Cool, right? For us, that would perhaps be the best conclusion to a mundane activity such as riding an elevator but this happened to be a reality for some folks in New York. © Reuters Recently, Fallon and McCartney ganged up together to prank the people riding the elevator at New York's 30 Rockefeller Plaza, who were there to take a tour of the NBC television studios. The prank was caught on camera for the world to see and the reactions they received from the fans, who were caught unaware by the two celebs, is truly heartwarming. © YouTube It is a two-minute fifty-second video clip that was shared on the official YouTube channel of 'The Tonight Show', where you can witness Fallon and McCartney sitting on sofas, a newspaper in hand, right outside the elevator lobby. When the elevator arrives, they reveal their faces from behind the newspaper, only to be greeted with excited cries and cheers. Take a look at the awesome video: Don't you agree that the reactions are totally priceless? We would have equally enjoyed the moment had we been there (though we can't promise to have contained our excitement as nicely) but watching the video is equally fun. It feels so nice to see celebs act so sportingly and leave people with a wide grin pasted on their faces.
This entry is about our IPS Community Suite 4.2 release. IPS Community Suite has long had a reputation system; first we had a simple up/down system, later updated to introduce a Likes system as an alternative. Whichever system you chose to use, it tied in with our reputation system. We're pleased to introduce the latest updates to the reputation system, and it's something that has been requested for quite some time: Reactions. Quite simply, reactions allow users to offer more fine-grained sentiments towards content than a simple up/down or 'like'. They are now in common usage on social networks, and so users expect to be able to be more nuanced in their response to something they see. Let's see how they work in a post, and then cover the options you'll have available. What you see above is the default setup for a site that has used the Like system in version 4.1. We include 5 reactions by default: Like Thanks Confused Sad Haha If you currently use the older style up/down reputation system, don't fret - you'll still get the new reactions on upgrade, but they'll be disabled by default and instead the new reaction UI will show up/down reactions. This gives you the flexibility to decide which of the new reactions, if any, you want to allow. So, those are the basics - but what configuration options can you expect to see? First, you can of course add your own reactions! We expect that beyond the default reactions you'd expect to find, some sites will want reaction types specific to their use-case. On an intranet, you might want to have 'agree' and 'disagree' reactions for staff to use when responding to discussions. On a gaming community, you might replace the icons to be some graphic from a video game that means something to your particular userbase. There's a wealth of possibilities. Each reaction you set up can be configured to adjust the original author's reputation count - a reaction can be positive (i.e. award a reputation point), negative (i.e. subtract a reputation point), or neutral (i.e. leave the reputation count unchanged). Our default set won't include any negative reactions, but you are free to configure these and new reactions to suit your own use-case. A user's total reputation count is still shown alongside their content and in their profile, of course. If you don't want to use the new reactions for whatever reason, you can disable all of them except Like, and it'll behave just the like 4.1-and-earlier system: Sites that currently use the up/down system don't show a list of names of users, and instead show an overall reputation score for the content. With the new reaction system, you can enable this even if you don't use up/down reactions. This is great if you plan to use reactions as, for example, an agree/disagree system, or where the content score is more important to your site than the individual reaction types. How the reaction UI looks with the 'count only' setting enabled As you'd expect, you can click individual reaction counts (or the overall reputation score, if you enable that setting) to view who reacted to the content. This remains a permission setting that you can apply per-group. On touch devices, on-hover functionality is not suitable, and so for these devices the reactions UI looks like this: Reactions play well with all areas of the suite, including Recommended Replies: ...and activity streams... ...and a couple of places we aren't quite ready to reveal yet We hope you're looking forward to this new feature as much as we are. It's already been a hit on our internal testing site, and we're looking forward to seeing how clients customize it for use on their own community. Developer note: Reactions are one of two new features (the other currently unannounced) so far that make use of PHP Traits. View the full article
