    Franchise Updates

    By Water Bottle

    Hey guys!   So we've made some changes to the franchise forums.   I looked at which franchises were on the front page and which were sub-forums and have thus changed them accordingly.   Star Wars got to stay on the main page because of Rogue One coming out in December. Star Trek got moved to the main page because of Star Trek Beyond, it's 50th anniversary, and upcoming television series. The DC movie forum got renamed to DC Media and was moved to the main

    By Water Bottle

    We have updated the site to 4.2.0! We are happy that we're finally live with this update for numerous reasons. Please note there may be some bugs so please don't hesitate to submit a support ticket or to PM Water Bottle/Telemachos.   Please note of the following changes: [*] Autoembedding is back. No longer having to manually put stuff in if we support automatically embedding it! [*] Reactions instead of just likes. ALL REACTIONS ADD ONE LIKE POINT TO A USER'S LIKE COUNT. EVE

Get Out the Vote!

This November, there is a lot being voted on.  But did you know the state of Panda well-being is on the ballot too?   Not explicitly, but there are many candidates who would do nothing about climate change, which the full effects post-2030 could bring the extinction of the species.   Please vote for the Pandas.  That means vote for candidates who do not deny manmade climate change as real, and candidates committed to doing something about it.   Thank you.

Encouragement And Equality

I'd like to submit an encouragement to the members.  The Panda Appreciation Club may be about Pandas but it is a club meant for all to join and appreciate...Pandas.   All are welcome, we exclude no one, except those who wish to exclude others.  The Panda Philosophy is one of Equality.  All people and pandas are equal to each.  No man is greater that his sister, no woman is greater than her brother, no Panda is greater than their neighboring Panda.   It is the Panda way to det

Anurian Designs

This project is taking on shape going forward and I'm happy with some of the overall changes and expansion in the designs.  Story-wise it's very close to being done, I'll be moving into finalization of more background and environment in the near future.   I've contacted at least one musician for work.  The format of this is still in a state of flux.  It may be fully comic, but may contain animated segments as well.     Actual pencils of some initial designs for this race

Meeting with Rafael Rosado

Tomorrow I'll be attending a lecture and getting a chance to talk to storyboard artist and animator Rafael Rosado.  He did primarily animated series (notably he storyboarded on Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Teen Titans and Transformers Prime, among others).  I'm looking forward to this, as well as discussing on the idea working with him on something in the upcoming future.

The update is now done. The two major skins (movie background and the default skin) are now updated to be compatible with the latest version.

These answers you will provide when you update key account info or when you try to use money to donate to the site. You will now get an e-mail when your e-mail or password c

Preview Button

Hi! We're still sorting out the skin theme upgrade! Turns out that the theme wasn't just upgraded to ensure compatibility with the latest version of Invision but also came with it's own changes we have to figure out.   Anyways, I am happy to announce that the new forum software...has a brand new feature! Or rather the return of an old one! The preview button is back!     The last button on that toolbar, the one that looks like a magnifying glass is over the page is

Unnamed Project Update #2

So, a lot of the overall storyline is worked out, but this particular project is probably going to be on the back burner until my other webcomic starts posting later this year.   But I'm enjoying these characters and this world so I really hope to do more with them       ...my aliens are pretty gay.  I think my own queerness shines through with this. lol

Ruk Reviews- Captain America: Civil War

So, Captain America: Civil War. The second movie about dueling superheroes this year. Or, as it's likely soon to be known, "the one that actually did it well."   "What? You thought you were going to have to wait before I started shitting on BvS? You don't know me very well, do you?"   Okay, now I've got that customary (and entirely deserved) jab at BvS out of the way, let's talk how I felt about this movie. I'll try and avoid raving about the stuff everyone else has alre

Designs for an upcoming project

Here are some previews for a project I'm doing some work on.  It remains to be seen if this will be animated, but a lot of my animation influences are pretty clear here.   This is a basic sci-fi story in the noir/mystery vein but with brighter colours.

Batman v Superman v Rukaio: All Bad Things Must Come to an End (Part 5)

All right, we're finally here. At the final part of this movie. It's taken probably more time and effort than it was worth, but it's been a fun ride. Significantly more fun that the movie itself, ironically.   Speaking of 'more fun', I watched the Supergirl/Flash crossover episode 'World's Finest' last night and loved it. Supergirl and the Flash are both series with a lot of ups and downs for me, but they absolutely owned that episode. It'

Batman v Superman v Rukaio: Everyone Loses (Part 1)

Oh my God this movie... Just... I can't even...    Okay, let's take this from the top. Anyone who knows me particularly well knows that I hate Man of Steel. Hate it with a passion. It was one of my most anticipated movies of 2013 and ended up being the worst superhero movie I've ever seen. Sure, on a technical level it's not as incompetent as Fan4stic or Superman IV: Quest for Peace, but it managed to get under my skin in a way that few ot

Launching the new TBOT Staff Blog

I am happy to say that the TBOT staff is officially launching the Box Office Theory Staff Blog! We'll be using this blog for multiple purposes: to talk about recent site changes, to create guides on how to navigate the new version of the site, as well as to answer some commonly asked questions. We might also post our opinions on the box office, promote community events and games, and generally use the blog to bring things to your attention. We're also hoping that we can revive interest in
