  1. Here you go. This is what I get. It might be due to me using an older version of Mac OS, since my Late 2009 White MacBook decided that it hates the newer versions of mac OS. I sure hope the error isn't showing because I'm on 10.7 and Safari 6.1.6.
  2. How come it's giving me an error each time when I try to view a thread on the dark skin? BTW it looks great.
  3. You're welcome. I really hope that you find a way to bring PRE back in its full glory. Maybe turn it into a website of some sorts with the board being integrated into it? I think you should really learn from Power Rangers Now, see and follow what they're doing and come up with your own concept. I don't know what else to suggest.
  4. Look, Mes, if things are standing like how you say they do, then you only have two options: 1. Give PRE to someone else who can come up with fresh ideas and also a new face to stand behind the board. 1a. Get someone to work with you on PRE in order to pull some new blood to the board. OR 2. Close the board. Of course, I'm not up for the option no.#2. But if you can get someone to work with you on the board, that might pull in some fresh blood around here. But for me, the main first option sounds the best. It wouldn't hurt PRE to go trough an owner change with you being still a part of it in some form. Honestly, I can't think what else to say or suggest.
  5. I hate to say it - but DekaRed is right. While the forum platform switches might have been a thing in the past and at least kept some of the discussion on the board going, that's long gone by now. Mes, you need to decide which forum platform you want to use to run your forum on. PRE needs to start offering something other PR-based boards don't have. I have already talked to you about this in anther forum update thread. I can't find the thread now, but if you have it stored somewhere, I suggest you to read it. Personally, I wouldn't mind if you went beyond Power Rangers. I already have with my board. Infact, I dropped the Power Rangers theme and direction altogether on my board and went RPG and fan fiction. You need to get the people's trust back. That isn't going to happen with constant morphs from forum platform to forum platform. If you can't think of anything good alone, find someone to help you out. I'm sure some of us have used an Administrator CP at least once. We might have good ideas too . Like DekaRed's post, let this post be positive criticism.
  6. "Beasts Unleashed" was a good start of the Hasbro-era of the franchise. The episode was like a combo of Saban Entertainment and Disney-era seasons, with many recognizable elements from "Day of the Dumpster". I'd say the show is definitely heading back to the direction of the pre-Saban Brands Era seasons. However, to be on the safe side, I'll wait for a couple of episodes to see how certain elements in the show progress and where does Hasbro end taking the show. The theme song was OK, but I'd really like if the show would go back to the standard 1-minute length for the series. The sets and the suits look amazing, and the cast did a great job in the first episode playing the characters. The only thing that remains to be seen is how do and how much do they end up using the Go-Busters footage. As long as they don't get the Rangers waving their weapons around in an armored version of their Ranger suits in the cockpits, I'm cool with the show.
  7. The board does look better like this. However, it'd be good idea to expand the Power Rangers-based sections and make them either superhero or sci-fi-based if the new era of the show doesn't give it a desperately needed power boost of popularity (and to the franchise) outside conventions and similar events. I also recommend sticking with IPB. PRE always looked & functioned best in my opinion each time it switched to it from vBulletin back in the old days.
  8. Thank God they ended up changing that. Also, Thank God for RG (Ernie's actor). I wouldn't mind the original name for the character being used, but Tony just doesn't sound PR-ish or match with the rest of the Rangers's names in my opinion.
  9. I like the knight-based helmets, but they don't exactly scream "Dinosaur" (or the suits) in my opinion. They should either switch to a different theme/motif for the season or change the look & feel of the suits or keep the suits and give the team knight-based arsenal and zords. As for the plot for the season, as well as for the intended story idea, I like it.
  10. I'm undecided. Pretty much torn between liking and not liking the show anymore: 30 % for "Don't like it but don't hate it either. Meh."; 30 % for "No. I've grown out of it."; 20 % for Undecided/Unsure and 20 % for "Yes! Love the show!". I'm still waiting for Hasbro to bring out their cards. I'll make my final decision after BM S1. If the season's good, I'll give Power Rangers one last second chance. My interest of the show has already declined to 20 %. Besides, I found myself leaning more towards Super Sentai lately.
  11. From left to right (on the left fence): Gemma (Ranger Operator Series Silver) Gia (Megaforce Yellow) Rocky (Mighty Morhin' Red) T.J. (Space Blue) Trent (DinoThunder White) From left to right (on the right fence): Kat (Turbo Pink) Wes (Time Force Red) Tommy (Mighty Morphin' Green/White, Zeo Red, Black DinoThunder) Koda (Dino Charge Blue) Antonio (Samurai Gold) In the middle (from left to right): Sarah (Ninja Steel Pink) Calvin (Ninja Steel Yellow) Brody (Ninja Steel Red) Preston (Ninja Steel Blue) Hayley (Ninja Steel White) Levi (Ninja Steel Gold) I've got to say - that was an interesting choice of Veteran Rangers. The first 6 seasons and the first 4 Earth-based teams are represented (MMPR S1-2-3, Zeo, Turbo, Space). Of course, Lightspeed is skipped over once again. From the latter SE Power rangers season, only Wes is present. The Disney seasons are represented by Tommy, Trent and Gemma. It would have been kind of cool if they had brought someone from Ninja Storm, since this was a Ninja-based season - yet another missed opportunity. Any Ranger from that season would've fit in here perfectly. Neo-Saban Rangers: Antonio, Gia, Koda. Another letdown was the quick-morph scene. Seriously, couldn't they just throw in a version of Adam's morphing sequence from OAR for Rocky and Tommy? Or is that present in the extended version? However, I didn't expect the Falconzord to return, but it was nice to see that Zord again. Plus it made sense using it since it's a Ninja Zord. The arrow finish was nicely done, I guess it was easier for the production team to do that instead of having the Falconzord using its cannons to fire at Draven. Hasbro - MM Dragonzord for the 30th anniversary episode, please! Thank you.
  12. A possible scenario just came trough my mind: Everything takes place in exactly the same way it did like in the video. The only difference I'd make is to use the actual cast playing their characters from the series and showing them in multiple dimensions. So following the events in the video, the ranger murderer goes beyond Mighty Morphin' and starts going after other teams across all dimensions, including Zeo, Turbo2, Space and all the Ranger teams beyond that season. He even gets the RPM and the Dino Charge Rangers. Somehow, the Time Force Rangers (including Wes and Eric) manage to bypass the encounter with the ranger murderer (the 4 TF Rangers arrived from the future for that reason, to be with their two friends) in the main PR dimension. Eventually, the ranger murderer catches up with them and kills Jen, Katie, Lucas, Trip and Eric. Nadira and Ransik, who accompanied the 4 from the future also can't strike even a little bit of luck. Wes starts traveling trough different dimensions, this time all alone, however, the ranger murderer somehow manages to follow him. The chase drags on and on until Wes accidentally finds a more modern version of the Timeship, secretly hidden by the main-dimension Jen, Katie, Lucas and Trip in another dimension. Wes manages to board the ship without the ranger murderer being able to follow him in it. In the ship's database, Wes finds a message by Alex and his 4 deceased friends, saying that he is the Universe's only hope to turn back the clock and stop some events from taking place. Later, Wes watches a video, which appears to have been secretly filmed by Jen. It is a video of the ranger murderer killing the S.P.D. Rangers. From the hot discussion between them and their foe, Wes finds out that he needs to go back to Lord Drakkon's dimension and stop Tommy Oliver from becoming the Lord and betraying the Rangers and the Morphin' Grid. However, that is easier said than done, since he's all alone and due to him using the dimensional portal technology a lot, he's made the Morphin' Grid too unstable for doing any morphing. Due to food & drink stock in the ship he is able to survive for a few days, trying to figure out how to outsmart the Ranger murderer and to bring the Tommy from Drakkon's dimension to justice. He goes back to re-watch the clip of the S.P.D. Rangers being murdered and he finally spots a direct message from Jen to him - she asks him to ask Doggie Cruger for help, who is also hiding in the S.P.D.'s base, surrounded by the shielding technology of Time Force. Wes finally figures out how to get back to the main Ranger dimension. Despite the fact that no-one seems to be following him any more, he can't let his guard down. Once in the main Ranger Universe, he travelers to the time of the S.P.D. Rangers and recruits Doggie Cruger to help him. Somehow, Sam and Kat had survived their attacks. Wes takes his dimensional controller and connects him to the Timeship's computer systems, thus allowing them to instantly travel between different time periods in different dimensions. They go straight to Lord Drakkon's dimension and try to talk to Tommy before he puts his plan into motion, but he chooses not to listen to them. He summons his soldiers instead and captures the four. However, a group of his soldiers decides to betray their boss and help the 4 Rangers instead. They take them to a secret location, where they find another Tommy - his clone that Tommy left in Colonial Angel Grove. Tom reveals that he was captured to because he was mistaken for the real Tommy from the main PR dimension. Now, as a team of 5 people working with the soldiers, they come up with a plan on how to bring Tommy down. The soldiers reveal that the Morphin' Grid has the ability to create an evil Ranger of its own if one or few of the Rangers betray it and turn against those they had sworn to protect. However, before they can act, Lorn Drakkon, now ready to put his plan into the motion, locates the gang the confronts them. When the 4 Rangers are injured, the soldiers reveal their true identity: It's Jason, Trini, Zack, Billy, Kimberly, Adam, Rocky and Aisha from the Drakkon's Ranger universe. They all morph and manage to heal the wounds of the 4 injured Rangers and Tom. At that time, the ranger murderer appears after tracking down, Wes, Cruger, Sam and Kat. After seeing what the 5 are trying to do (Tom even without any Ranger power), the ranger murderer starts loosing its strength. While the 8 MM Rangers deal with the now weekend murderer, the Red Time Force, Shadow, Omega and Kat Rangers manage to weaken Lord Drakkon's power in a long, 24-hour long confrontation. With both of the villains now severely weakened, the Morphin' Grid starts repairing itself once again. The ranger murderer switches sides and faces Lord Drakkon, while trapping the 12 Rangers in a magnet-based force shield. The murderer captures Drakkon, who morphs back to Tommy, who is introduced to a horrifying vision. The ranger murderer disappears from existence completely. He sees the 12 Rangers being sucked by the shield's magnet powers and realizes what he had done. Tommy morphs into the Green Ranger and starts absorbing the shield's magnetic powers. But the shield's power is too much from him to take, and he looses his life in the process, along with his fellow soliders. The lives of the 12 Rangers are saved, who thank the 4 traveling ones for their help. Wes, Cruger, Sam and Kat return to the main PR dimension and to their own time periods. But only to find out that a lot had been changed. After finding out what could have happened, Tommy's confidence in being a Ranger is shaken. Wes visits him with his Ranger friends, the MM and the DT Rangers, who tell him that he's needed now more then ever - as a friend, as a parent, as a science teacher and as a Power Ranger. This leads into Time Force enforcing some ground rules and laws considering the Morphin' Grid, Ranger powers and the usage of Ranger fighting techniques/styles and technology across all dimensions and time periods in order to prevent Lord Drakkon ever coming back into existence. -------------------------------------------------- It's a good story, isn't it?
  13. This would make an excellent spin-off. Lord Drakkon's existence causes the Morphing Grid to turn against the Rangers in every Ranger dimension, which results in the creation of the ranger murderer in the video, thus preventing Rangers from different dimension to warn each other and their own Zordon. I'd love to see how Time Force would have been involved in this and what would be Wes's role.
  14. I just wish they would've been able to find a way to make a full Goseiger adaptation first and do Gokaiger since it would give them the necessary time to get everyone they wanted on board for the Ranger cameos, license Ranger teams (as per JDF), get the movie footage rights for the 199 Hero Battle and just do a better anniversary season overall, with a mixture of footage from the movie itself and original footage for the LB itself. The Megaforce Rangers should've already been Veteran Rangers by the time the Legendary Battle took place and it should have been an entirely separate Ranger team in the Gokaiger suits leading the whole thing. Anyway, I'm going to give this anniversary episode a chance and if it's good, I'll find a way to watch the full Ninja (Super) Steel season and give it a try so I can make my own comparation between how Saban and Hasbro do certain things for the show and then, if Beast Morphers turns out good, maybe I'll give the franchise one last chance.
  15. If they manage to get the season splitting/Supering dropped and by the chance, turn Power Rangers back into its old self (at least back in its Disney-era form), I positive that the franchise will do good under them. But for the start, let's just hope that Hasbro gets the old 40-episode per season format back, because that's one of the more important things that Power Rangers has been missing out on for more than a decade. Not to mention that we've drastically fallen back from the Sentai, we are no longer just 1 season behind, plus we've skipped some and now we've gone back to adapt the season that was supposed to be adapted after (Super) Megaforce.
